Most Pathetic Anti-Communist Arguments

DieGedankenSindFrei

The Top Ten

1 “(Insert Leader or Country here) killed up to (enter preposterous number here) of their own people.“

Vladimir "Mao" Stalin Kill 400 BILLION of his own men. Still think communism is cool? - Bhertz

Carl Marks ruled over soviet china and killed 700 billion people. communizm is bad

It isn't communism itself that killed the people. Take this for example, assume that Ghengis Kahn ran a communist empire. Kahn killed millions of people, but would you blame him or communism for the murders? Exactly, communism didn't make the decision to kill the people, the one leader did. Nowhere does communism state that murdering people is part of the ideology.

Peddle you communist apologetics somewhere else. The numbers are the numbers. It happened. More than 60 million in Maoist China. More than 20 million under Stalin alone, tens of millions more under the 70-year Soviet regime. Hundreds of thousands in Cuba. North Korea, unknown, but likely several million. Cambodia more than a million. Nearly 300 million dead, directly or indirectly, under communism in the 20th century.

2 “Communism works well in theory, but fails in practice.“

China is one of the best proofs that Communism works very well in practice. They are number one in the world for their economy, for their progressive economic plans for future energies etc... North-Korea isn't a communist state in a pure sense of communist theory since their leaderships are based on ancient dynasties ( inbreeding of genetacilly relations between families to preserve the desirable characters ). Plus their leaders are seen as gods which is against communists views. As for the Soviet Union ( which doesn't exist anymore! Most people in the USA thinks that Russia is still communist.), Stalin was a corrupted dictactor that didn't care or followed the " real " communist theories. And corrupted dictactors can be seen in different political concepts. If you think that you're so " free " in the USA democracy just look at case of the NFL who refused to stand up for the flag and the national anthem. They're almost seen as traitors of their country. There's no more freedom in ...more

Like Democracy works well in practice? Read Plato's " Republic ". It says that democracy will fall down because of its diversity itself ( people who agree and people who don't agree on something ) and replaced after the chaos by an Oligarchy ( people will look up for a leader who will supposed to restore the country but in reality is just someone who wants to get richer and better himself with his staff of rich people. Sounds almost like the Trump age! ) till it will become a dictacture ( his rules are the only rules ). Also, do you find voting fair? Someone wins with let's say 51 % votes which leaves 49 % of the population unhappy. A referendum works better in my opinion than votes. Communism will maybe fail ( I'm not 100 % sure about that ) but democracy has proven many times its faillure too.

There's truth in it but just because that it is a fact that every political theory and program are failing in practice. A political structure that works for 100% doesn't exist. Every political structure is failing.

It "works" neither in theory or fact, unless by "work," you mean enslaving humanity.

3 “It goes against human nature.“

Humans are complex creatures that adapt and act in accordance to their knowledge. Do you really think that hunter-gatherers would just go around and hoard to themselves and exploit others in the same way people under Capitalism would? Anyways, it's best to just not respond and let the idiot go. - DieGedankenSindFrei

Naturally, humans are equals. That’s what communism is. Everyone (except for certain criminals) is morally equal to each other human. Communism emphasizes this. Each person, male or female, black or white, is treated as an equal in respect to how much they earn. Capitalism makes certain people (most bourgeois) feel as though they are more important and better than other people. Communism eliminates this problem.

No it doesn't. It stands for equality and justice. - NoobTuber

This is getting tedious. Since you keep going off about the same unoriginal arguments you right-wingers give and since actually reading up on Marxist works (instead of relying on Fox News and “The Godless Communism“ only) seems to be far beyond your mental capacity, I may as well stop trying to argue with you. I'm not the greatest arguer, but you can discuss Communism on Soviet Empire. The website mostly has Marxists, but some Conservatives and Anarchists come over as well, unless you're afraid of having the life debunked out of you... Also, don't forget to check out Marxists Internet Archive when you do want to actually know what you're fighting against. That is all and have a good day. - DieGedankenSindFrei

4 “Communism is godless so therefore, it is bad.“

Since when is " having " an religion ( which are all organised ) a must to have good morals and ethics? Atheism have ethics ( if not more ) and good morals too. Communism is against organised religion ( " Religion is the opium of the people " - Marx ) but it doesn't say to do evil just because you don't follow ethic laws and moral laws of religion. Plus, if you don't believe in god it doesn't mean that you can't have spiritual valors. You believe in god = you're good. You don't believe in god = you're bad. We all know that the truth about humanity isn't like that. There are more religious wars ( terrorism included ) and deads in name of a god in history than every other war. In fact religious wars and religious terrorism never stopped. It's still going on! So, don't tell me that because you don't believe in god you're automatically bad.

Seriously? Do we really have to go on this point? This is the worst argument ever. "By the was, he's a Buddhist. "There is no supreme being in Buddhism." is the comment below. This is... very offensive, actually. Just because they don't have a supreme being, doesn't mean this is not a religion. And just because Lenin (or Marx, I don't know who the person is talking about) was not christian, doesn't mean that he is a fraud. Even if he had no religion, that wouldn't mean he is a fraud. Stop thinking that any religion other than yours is wrong or bad.

That’s just rediculous - blackflower

Yes. He's a complete fraud. By the was, he's a Buddhist. There is no supreme being in Buddhism. And it's concept of an afterlife with no individual identity is very communistic.

5 “The Soviet Union was Communist.“

Well, duh! - BorisRule

Just because USSR sucks doesn't mean Vietnam or China sucks. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Socialism is not communism. Marx's theories are not the same as Lenin's theories. They are related but the saying of Lenin " The end justifies the means " isn't a socialist idea that was written by Marx to reach the ideal state. The theory of Marx is more complex but also more reasonable to reach the political program in practice.

While the USSR and other countries were/are ruled by communist parties, none of them even saw themselves as being Communist. Instead, they saw themselves as being Socialist as the Marxist theory states that countries must first become s Socialist before they reach Communism. - DieGedankenSindFrei

6 “Communism is for the lazy.“

Not true and even if it is was true, so what? Is it a must of life to work like crazy till you die without even enjoy the real things of life?

This guy is why people don't like it... "why must we work, why can't it be free, id rather netflix & chill" - EliHbk

Typical conservative argument. Actually, a communistic society (in accordance to the Marxist theory) demands that everyone must work for society by doing what they do best. For example, if you thrive as a doctor, you're a doctor and if being a janitor is what you do best, then you're a janitor. - DieGedankenSindFrei

Admittedly, I did try to have this list removed because I didn't like how it turned out, but this is actually fun. Also, I haven't been reporting you. Where's the fun in that? - DieGedankenSindFrei

7 “Communism takes everything you have.“

Communism is not against private property because there's no private ownership of capital involved and it's the property of the state or polity who gives you the property. They're against private property as seen in capitalism. Anarchists like Proudhon, Boekanine etc... see private property owned by a socialist or communist state as theft because they're saying that everyone who has ( for example ) helped to build a house have the right also for its property and not only the state or polity. We all know that anarchism and marxism were the cause of many disagreements and fights. Trotski even decided to kill all anarchists when the communist state began to take place. The private property as seen in capitalist states is based on the roman property law which is based on corporate monetary systems. The private property as seen in communism, Marxism, socialism has another meaning and is not based on the roman law and therefor it doesn't take everything you " have ". It gives they own or to ...more

Oh, well...As long as you could keep your "personal stuff like toys and paintings..." Shucks, what else could a free man possibly need or want? Think you know where you can stick your Manifesto.

Good point. I did use those two interchangeably, but you still had that stuff under Socialism as they respected personal property. - DieGedankenSindFrei

There IS no practical difference between socialism and communism.

8 “Stalin was worse than Hitler.“

Oh, well your explanation smoothed it right over and made it all better, simply a math error, not a big deal at all.

Sorry about that, I should have put my reasoning in #3, but I tried to put my reasoning for Stalin in it's own area so I changed the title. Just read the “Holodomor“ part. - DieGedankenSindFrei

I've already mentioned a similar statement earlier, but one thing that has always made me cringe is when people say things like “Stalin killed 20 million of his own people.“ How the hell do people come up with such large numbers, anyway?
The Most of these deaths must have supposedly come from the “Holodomor“ and the gulags, but the number that died in the supposed “genocide“ was about 3.9 million Ukranians and the population grew anyway. The Great Purge really happened, but it is heavily exaggerated. - DieGedankenSindFrei

9 "Donald Trump is a communist"

He’s anything but - blackflower

No, he's a capitalist authoritarian whatever he is.

He’s an embodiment of all the bad parts of capitalism - blackflower

What is this doing here. Donald Trump is a greedy capitalist pig. Neo-liberalism at his worst. And by liberalism I mean the political term and not the pejoratif sense of the word liberal from " free " which democratic-(American) politicians and followers call themselves.

10 “Doctors would be paid the same as janitors!“

See, now...this is where you're wrong again. In communist countries, janitors ARE doctors.

Plain damn arrogance. - NoobTuber

This is mostly an attempt to discuss Communism in a semi-serious way. This obviously false as people were/are actually paide differently in 'Communist' countries. Also, a communist society would have no currency. - DieGedankenSindFrei

11 “Race mixing is Communism.“

I’m mainly attracted to people outside my race, how does that make me a communist? - blackflower

There is nothing wrong with race mixing. The problem is the different culture mixing and different religious mixing that comes with it. Many so-called alt-left organisations who called themselves socialists, Marxists, communists or anarchists like Antifa are defending immigrants and their rights of liberties of religion and culture. This are in fact no real or true leftists. Communism will never accept foreigners in a communist state to promote their culture and religion since communism is against every organised religion or culture that confronts the values of communism. Why defending the right of an islamic immigrant to practice his religion when religion is not part of the communist polity? Alt-left organisations like Antifa are giving Marxists, communists, anarchists or socialists ideas a wrong notion of what left really is. They should focus on fighting capitalism, poltical right-wing parties and not focusing on rights of immigrants. Immigration and rights of immigrants are two ...more

I mostly got it off of a pro-segregation poster. - DieGedankenSindFrei

12 "Communism denies freedom"
13 “Holodomor“

While there certainly was a famine in 1932, there is absolutely no evidence that indicates that it was man-made. Many people often compare this to the Holocaust, but there are dozens of witnesses on all sides of the Holocaust as well as camps that tell you that it actually happened while survivors of the famine can only mention that a famine occured. Also, the famine spread to Central Asia so it wasn't in the Ukraine only. Anyways, it is pretty much a way for the west to assimilate movements they find “too extreme“ like Communism and Fascism. - DieGedankenSindFrei
