Pushing communism onto the ash heap of history

Needless to say, socialism has an unmatched track record of failure. It was such a disaster than only a few supposedly high-ranked academics thought it worked.

But what about high-ranked communists who grew up under socialism. Did they think it worked?

    People here in the West are completely against the socialism and communism but exactly one of those nations has already taking the world’s economy ((China))

      Chinas dominance in export goods is due to a 1930s style corporate gangsterism .There is total disregard for the workers, and environmental standards of any level. .Many of the west’s electronics are manufactured in horrific conditions that kill people . like the rare earth miners whose products power our cell phones, the rare earths cannot be manufactured in the west due to workers health a safety standards and environmental concerns

        That is dead on. China’s economy strikes me as a hybrid of the old Soviet centrally planned economy (Complete with all its negative aspects) with the Japanese model.

        The Chinese have a long history of not putting value on human life, and many of their most famous architectural projects were rather notorious for loss of life. It is said that the Great Wall of China is one of the world’s longest graveyards, because when a worker died on the job, his remains would be crushed flat and buried in the foundation.

        Chairman Mao was merely continuing a tradition started by Chinese Emperors of yore…

      That’s so deep.
      Hey, I have a question.
      Since virtually all of the countries in Latin and South American say they are socialist, why are they all such shit holes that their natives have to move here?
