We obviously don't agree on many many things. I have been to some former communist countries in some years after the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe while serving in the US Army and from what I gathered the standard of living wasn't very good under communism. Now, these former communist countries were not the former East Germany mind you, but one only has to look at how many people sought to leave East Germany for West Germany during the Cold War to make a judgement call on whether communism was really a success in East Germany.
You tell a very different story from what I gathered about communism while serving in some of the formerly communist countries in Eastern Europe with the army. Human trafficking was a problem in Eastern Europe in the aftermath of the collapse of communism but didn't seem the standard of living was all that great under communism in the former communist countries of Eastern Europe. Plus the communists didn't exactly value freedom according to the people I talked with who were citizens of these countries and had to live under the communists.
I came to appreciate the importance and value of American capitalism while serving abroad in these former communist countries. Of course you might not have been around or really remember either when communism was in place in East Germany and Eastern Europe. American capitalism is not perfect but I'll take American capitalism any day over any sort of socialist or communist system.
Human trafficking was a problem after socialism collapsed because small market capitalism and various mobs dominated the majority of the economics. Crime was VERY high. But you mentioning human trafficking has nothing to do with socialism. It depends on what definition of "freedom" you are using?
Some freedoms are VERY BAD. Graffiti, crime, prostitution, rave culture, arson crimes, rape, gang violence, liberal social decay, and people being loud and annoying as fuck are very bad.
Incorrect. Fascism and socialism are very different.
Fascism rises when capitalism decays. Fascists use fascist politics to conserve the capitalist mode of production (capitalism). Fascists do not like free market capitalism, but they lack real consciousness, that's why they get into fascism. They blame everything they hate, rather than capitalism, because that was how most fascists were raised. Fascists are kind of like hard minded conservatives who are angry, and disappointed with capitalism.
Socialism is an economic policy. "Communism" is when society reaches liberation of their hearts that uses socialist economics. Italy under Benito Mussolini was not socialist because it conserved the concept of value, and defended the family institution.
