The #fuckingcapitalists always ensure they have socialism for the rich. It's the only way to keep their bullshit system working.

This isn't coherent, dude.

The opposite or lack of capitalism IS socialism, or forceful wealth-redistribution.
replied 294d
The funniest part, is he thinks that somehow, socialism can work with BCH as a currency. Complete fruitcake.
replied 294d
There are already wealth redistribution services built on BCH, like eatBCH and BCH for the Homeless. Plus you could argue mining is seizing the means of production/money production
replied 294d
Voluntary. Voluntary socialism can't work in large groups.
replied 294d
EatBCH and BCH for the Homeless are voluntary, so is choosing to mine/transact.

You're quoting political terms from the 1800's lol, I don't think you know what you're talking about.

If you're saying that govt becomes forced after a certain point, maybe, but people are always capable of voting with their feet. Multiple working, free countries prove that it works
replied 294d
Vote with their feet? Which way did the gun turrets point on the Berlin wall?
replied 294d
Most people's idea of democratic socialism is bastardized and basically Soviet Communism though, I can gauge from your McCarthyist attitudes and profile pic that you're one of them
replied 294d
Lol, still waiting for real socialism to be tried, huh? Good luck with Bernie. You forgot to mention the Nordic model, although they claim they aren't socialists.
replied 294d
Bernie claims that too, I never mentioned him however. Just your disconnection with reality on the concept of socialism and social programs under a broken capitalist system
replied 294d
I didn't say you mentioned him, but he's the most prominent proponent of "democratic socialism" right now. It's called putting 2 & 2 together.
replied 294d
Keep waiting for someone to seize the means of production lol, AnCap and laissez faire capitalism advocates are just as retarded as communists and Marxists. It doesn't work.
replied 294d
That's... not an argument.
replied 294d
Lmfao what?

So paying money to eat food is socialism now? And charity is socialism???

You realize that voluntary interaction is implied by a capitalist economy, and prohibited...
replied 294d
prohinited... in a socialist economy, right?
replied 294d
Nope, but considering BCH is a global network, you could argue that paying for other people to eat with it is.

Not knocking them, I donated to both, just pointing out flaws in logic
replied 294d
Global charity isn't socialism. If its voluntarily performed by participants and advocates of a capitalist economy, its an aspect of capitalism, not socialism. Don't claim others' work
replied 294d
Yeah. I'm kinda confused why socialists and communists are involved in cryptoCURRENCY let alone a SM site on the blockchain, where all actions cost money. Its pure meritocracy here.
replied 294d
Lol there wasn't such thing as currency in Soviet Russia/isn't in Communist China? What makes you think the currency aspect conflicts with the ideology?

Yuan doesn't exist I guess lol
replied 294d
BCH is censorship resistant. Your examples were heavily censored.
replied 294d
Communist countries can't tolerate resistance to censorship. Case in point, China just DDOSed Telegram, because it was being used to organize Hong Kong protests.
replied 294d
*Totalitarian* governments can't tolerate resistance to censorship. Social media has been taken down numerous times in capitalist countries, just look at Turkey, Egypt, Russia, Iran...
replied 294d
Russia isn't a capitalist country you whacko
replied 294d
They preach anti-money, but its not feasible or possible to live up to it. Having money implies you have a property right to the money, otherwise theres no reason for money to exist
replied 294d
I honestly can't tell what point you're trying to make here, are you saying that there isn't/wasn't money in Communist Russia or China?

Civil asset forfeitures are a thing in the US
replied 294d
How do you seize BCH without the private key?
replied 294d
By taking the person's cell phone, imprisoning the person and beating the key out of them, or just ransacking their apartment. Not that hard, especially if the person is careless
