And you want to incarcerate people over crimes of thought,
No, you're incorrectly imputing that I'm a *Stalinist*, and I'm *not*. I'm not a nationalist of any kind. (Only nationalism would use a state apparatus, as for imprisonment, and I'm for the *working class*, and ultimately for a stateless and classless society.)
which is far more ideological than preserving others' rights. Besides, using your reasoning jailing murderers and rapists would also be an ideological decision
No, this is faulty reasoning on your part, since crimes against property is not the same as crimes against a person's physical *person* and their own well-being. My point stands that crimes against private property is politically *ideological*, for the upholding of the capitalist institution of private property.
Also, even the USSR recognized some measure of individual property, and punished those who stole public property.
Okay, well, you can be the historian on this stuff -- again, I'm not a Stalinist.
I hope you're not insinuating that *I'm* a 'totalitarian'.
Yes you are. You are the one who advocates gulagization of opponents simply based on what they think, not me.
Incorrect again -- my political slogan is 'Don't be a counterrevolutionary'. This implies that there has to be some *action* on the part of someone, against an ongoing revolution, for them to be 'counterrevolutionary'.
Stalinism isn't the only type of totalitarianism.
...Effects that had dissipated by 1932 (and in China's case, by the time of the Great Leap Forward).
Nope, sorry, we obviously disagree on the impacts of history, and you're being too *dismissive* of the legacy of past Western imperialism.
