I know I shouldn't be here. For some reason the notices of new posts started coming in my inbox a while back again and so sometimes I want to jump in and say a few things, as though I have something to add.

Marduk,Communism isn't even communism any more. Does anyone actually think that China is actually still communist?
That is free market ideology directly interfacing with 2000 years of feudalism.
Complete Bullshit , Going ask the Hong Kong residents and talk to the families who escape the grip of the regime especially the ethnic groups and Christians who had their churches torn down just like Stalin.
The problem here is that some people are thinking in terms of the 1950s, and the communist threat of that era. They can't see how these governments have changed even if they are no less dangerous.Not every bad state actor is communist, and not every anti-communist state actor is good. The Nazi party was fascist and very anti-communist. Castro was communist, and was mostly benign to Cuban people. McCarthy was clearly anti-communist but also clearly authoritarian, and hence I would also argue anti-democracy. All of those except Cuba were capitalist.
