Actually you are using this platform to deconstruct history and replace it with Socialist Propaganda to promote antisocial action. Anyone who quotes Lenin, Stalin or Marx shows himself to be ignorant of the history of the 20th Century: none of these evil people have anything worthwhile to say. Anyone who does understand history knows that Marxist Socialism is a failed creed: Millions died testing Socialist theory in experiments covering half the World for over a Century: some are still running, and are easy to identify: they are those countries where the people are repressed and impoverished (Zimbabwe, Venezuela, North Korea, for instance).

In every instance it was proved that centrally planned Socialist economic theory just does not work. With bureaucratic decisions replacing the price signals of the free market, the economy produces surpluses of unwanted goods and queues for, and rationing of desirable goods such as food. The more a Government tries to plan and control the market, the worse it works.

Marxist theory is unworkable propaganda that we know cannot be made to work in the real world, ever, under any circumstances. Socialist regimes such as those created by Hitler, Lenin, Mao and Pol Pot always rapidly change to totalitarian dictatorships, and eventually their economies collapse.

What you call Capitalism is just the free trade of goods and services from willing sellers to willing buyers, with as little government interference as possible.

Your world view is delusional: Capitalism is the opposite of Totalitarianism.

Virtually everything you say is a lie or a deliberate distortion of the truth. Corrections follow:

Yellow Vest protesters have frequently targeted police with violence, and American protest movements such as Antifa already use violence to silence dissent and to attack police the same way.

Russia is now a failed State where 3% of the population owns 90% of the wealth because the Communists stole everything from the people as Communism collapsed: it is a Country run by its Mafia. China continues to have many billionaires and some poverty due to the Chinese Communist Party’s acceptance that only Capitalism could save their economy; the alternative was to stay Communist to make the country more equal in universal poverty.

I work in IT, Community volunteer interested in Politics, support Capitalism as the best economic system for lifting people out of poverty, Skeptical scientist.
