The USSR with all its faults, with the murderor Stalin make a bad name to communism. But it is really what communism failed? It is really in human nature to be extremly selfish?. Well maybe but for me thats kinda sad. The Capitalist economies look to be the best, you have the USA, Honk Kong, Canada, Chile etc. and some will even argue that Africa is socialist and thats the reason of its missery, but maybe a closer look about to the capitalist regions like USA-Canada and Europe can give us a different story, an story about how this capitalist founded its power in the consumption of Latin America, Africa and Asia for a long time and still do it, how they hire dictators and death squads to maintain their status quo. Well my country is an example of this policy, USA suported the 80s regime with guns and million of dollars, a regime that killed people. killed Arnulfo Romero, destroyed enitire towns and other cruelty, ¿Why all this? Becouse of the Anticommunism. You can also see how capitalism pollutes the planet, at the point that it puts our survival in stake. Going back to Russia, in the times of the USSR people seemed to have better health, less fires like today(watch the news about the fires in Russia), the haved access to shcool and vacation and etc. But soviet people also haved opression, beurocracy and the violation of human rights and some libertys. But most russian think that the time of USSR was better than today more market oriented system. But opression and not access to liberty is not in socialism, that is in the alck of freedom and democracy. Well i kinda overextended. What will hapen if Communism/Socialism is mixed with democracy and personal freedom? i think that is the way it suposed to be, not the soviet style, and thats what really gives fear to capitalist powers. Well i hope i dont killed by muiltinational, the last months a miner company hired assasins to kill enviromental activist, they are anger becouse the goverment told them to go away and stop minig, they were goint to pollute the country more. -I will really like to see a debate here about this ideas, and thats becouse i feel that this forum is full of intelligent and maybe more conscious people than the avarage. -I am from El Salvador PS: Sorry for my english it kinda fails.
