Communism is bad, really. It is bad for the people that have to live in the country where the communism is in power. But, why do these countries chose communism?
In Russia, Lenin advocated Communism to protect the country from the exploitation from the capitalists that use credit-based monetary systems. This monetary system, allows great industrial countries with good growth to start exploiting other countries before it actually earns any money. For example, if I constantly do business with the banks, and if I raise my credit to the point where I can borrow millions, I can go to poor countries and buy their productive companies, energy, and other things, thus, eventually I would basically enslave those companies and those countries' resources to me and to my country.
Our system is hungry for exploitation of other countries. That's why we have always been against the communism, because communist countries don't allow foreign investment and exploitation. That's why Bush is running around the world and spreading democracy, so that we can exploit as many countries as possible.
In his book "Imperialism - the highest stage of capitalism", Lenin talks about how capitalists exploit poor nations.
So, ever since we have adopted a credit-based monetary system in 1913, the revolution came to Russia few years later to protect it from exploitation from our country.
When the Soviet Union economy was collapsing from Reagan's economic pressures/attacks, Reagan came to Andropov and asked him to sign a partnership with the USA, but Andropov declined the offer, because it would allow US to completely exploit Russia.
That's why we were taught to believe that communists and despots are bad guys and that we must fight them around the world (because they don't allow us to exploit their.)
Why do we have to fight them anyway? Can't we just live our lives peacefully over here? No, because we are greedy and it would be awesome to get things from elsewhere for much cheaper. But how can we get it cheaper if the communism is all around us? We fight it and overthrow their governments.
But while we go around and promote democracy, we pass legislations over here that prevent foreigners from investing over here in case our economy falls and they try to buy up all our companies to enslave us.
I believe, that 1913, the year when we have adopted that damn credit-based monetary system is a year that changed the whole world.
Millions of people have been killed in the Soviet Union by the communists. Why did they kill them?? Was it because communists were ruthless killers???? No!!! They had to do it to prevent any movements of democracy in order to protect the people from the worse - The Federal Reserve Bank! People were uneducated. How could anyone explain to them that the Revolution and communism were really to protect the people from the exploitation of globalists.
While we just wake up to the fact that globalists are running the world, the foreign governments always knew that there is evil behind our government. They just had to take appropriate measures to prevent the evil from coming over there as their countries were not advanced as we were.
