Actually, he's a socialist. Also, communism (and socialism) inherintly doesn't work - mankind is greedy and selfish by nature. Communism is just another way of letting other people work for you - you don't have to do shit while still get the same as others because of 'equal sharing'. But yeah, let's not go there, we've been down that road before, although it led to a few good discussions.
Curious though, Taralom, what did you vote with the elections?
SP, Socialistic Party. I just turned 18, so I voted for them because they wanted to keep the... errr... study financing(?). Oh, and because of the fact that they would never get in league with the PVV, among other things. So it was a matter of looking for what I felt that people of my age would need, instead of looking what the entire country would need (hadn't had the time to figure that out, unfortunately)
And dude, you just proved my point. Communism doesn't work because of the greedy, selfish nature of human beings. If everybody would care for each other, Communism has the great ideal that everybody gets an equal share. If you'd take human nature out of the picture, communism isn't that bad. It's just a taboo because of us being on the other side of the iron wall during the Cold War.
Actually, it's the same with Hitler. Hitler is a bad man by default because he lost the war. But History is written by the victor, so if Hitler and his Third Reich would have won the Second World War, we would not only speak German in Europe, we would also praise Hitler as our second savior or something.
And didn't I respond to Pasidon that Matias was not a Communist?
Why are you telling me
that he's not a communist? Or did I just get that wrong?
As a last note: I'm not actively keeping up with my Revora postings, so feel free to respond, but I might be late with responding.
On the Last, Last note: Please be gentle? I often have a different look on things, which often goes in the opposite direction of what is generally accepted at Revora, as I have noticed on multiple occasions already.
