An analysis of Late Stage Capitalism

AN ANALYSIS OF LATE STAGE CAPITALISM & THE CONFUSION OF OF SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM WITH STATE CAPITALISM:
The unjustifiable demonisation of Karl Marx:
There seems to be a notion that communism and socialism promotes laziness particularly since Karl Marx the man who wrote the books on them that act as the founding modern day principle was a moocher and parasite that leeched of the wealth and labour of others.In fact the reality is Karl Marx worked as a journalist to keep himself afloat and paid for everything and sold books and him being financially dependant on Ingles was only while he was writing his books Das Kapital,The Communist Manifesto meaning he was only being given money while doing research and writing his books as well as when he was unable to find work.That is he did make attempts find work and didn’t want to live in the slums for the sake of his children with him primarily working in his field of writing and journalism but needed to be financially supported by someone as a form of patronage while researching and writing his books.He was financially self sufficient outside of this which is a lot better than Ayn Rand the hack writer who scraped by on Medicaid and social welfare despite writing about how its laziness.Apart from a few small book advances, journalism was Marx’s only source of earned income.(There is a story, though Sperber considers it unsubstantiated, that once, in desperation, he applied for a job as a railway clerk and was turned down for bad handwriting.) In the eighteen-forties,Marx edited and contributed to political newspapers in Europe; from 1852 to 1862, he wrote a column for the New York Daily Tribune, the paper with the largest circulation in the world at the time.When journalistic work dried up, he struggled.He depended frequently on support from Engels and advances on his inheritance. He was sometimes desperate for food; at one point, he couldn’t leave the house because he had pawned his only coat. The claim that the author of “Capital” was financially inept, and that he and his wife wasted what little money came their way on middle-class amenities like music and drawing lessons for the children, became a standard “irony” in Marx biographies. Sperber contests this.Marx had less money to waste than historians have assumed, and he accepted poverty as the price of his politics. He would gladly have lived in a slum himself, but he didn’t want his family to suffer.Three of the Marxes’ children died young and a fourth was stillborn; poverty and substandard living conditions may have been factors.That hypocrite Ayn Rand would have to been dragged kicking and screaming to do one days work much like yourself whose entire income is based entirely on Monitisation and Patreon donations and big fat paychecks from PragerU and corporate think tanks which are tax free and require only the barest minimum cababilities such as screaming like a spoiled kindergartener about subjects you know nothing about.

The difference between Karl Marx and say Ayn Rand,Milton friedman and Adam Smith is that Marx would have been appalled and disgusted at the bastardisations of this philosophies throughout the 20th century in the form of Stalins,Pol Pots,Maos dictatorships while Rand,Friedman and Smith as well as her supporters like Stossel,Brook,Molyneux would have justified and praised the horrors of neoliberalism and unfettered capitalism that manifested itself in rampant environmental destruction,increasing inequality gap,disregard for human life with regards to a healthcare system that leaves thousands to die needlessly every year,perptural warfare for imperialism of capitalist systems that topple democratically elected leaders using manufactured consent and installing puppet government over defunct fossil fuels occurring in predominantly capitalist economies in both America and also those in the newly emerging markets of India and also China as seen with Iraq,Iran,Afghanisthan,Syria,Libya,Central America and now with what is being done for Venezuela and again Iran as normal and acceptable.That is the difference between a philosopher and a psychopathic pseudointellectuals who classing Smith,Friedman and Rand even modern ones such as Molyneux and the musings of lobsters by Peterson as philosophers at all is well offensive to the field of philosophy itself as the term bottom of the barrel and basic does not come close to describing their capacity as one.Ayn Rand and Milton Friedman espoused some of the worst attributes of humanity that has lead to countless wars since her ideas were published and brainwashed her followers into justifying the widening gap between the rich and poor and also countless deaths from poverty and denial of healthcare and decadence.Not only that but she was a hypocrite that abused here own social welfare becoming the very parasite she espoused and her “philosophy” if thats what you wanna call it was so basic and bottom of the barrel as to not even deserve discussion.They like their followers especially the like Yaron Brook,John Stossel,Rand Paul,Faux News,My2Cents,ShaneKilian etc always label the flaws of current capitalism such as poverty,the Coronavirus genocide,perpetual warfare etc as a result of either crony capitalism and/or corporatism and thus not the real unrestricted capitalism that Smith,Friedman and Rand condoned that has still have to be applied to the real world yet at the same time these people who blame the ills of the world on crony capitalism and corporatism and too much government that pervades all of society would at the same time turn around and say to socialists and communists that unrestricted free market capitalism not government programmes,corporatism,crony capitalism has and is currently lifting millions of people out of poverty ignoring the contradiction – how is it that capitalism is lifting millions out of poverty when we live under corporatism and crony capitalism and not actual unrestricted capitalism.Which is it?You cannot have it both ways it has to be one or the other.Its like the fact that you always label socialist countries communism without even realising the different between them.Furthermore your excuse that is or wasn’t real capitalism is no different than it wasn’t real communism.There has never been a communist country because they were socialist countries and not even those that Marx would have approved of or condoned.This is Orwellian logic at its finest.This the teenage level bullshit that supporters of Rand and Friedman spout is what was summarised perfectly by John Rogers that summarises the stunted critical logic of supporters of the free market perfectly – “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes,leading to an emotionally stunted,socially crippled adulthood,unable to deal with the real world.The other,of course,involves orcs.”.Well at least for me it was when I was a bookish 8 year old for both books back in 1995 and I grew up past it when I was 10 in 1997.Those of us that have the audacity to call ourselves adults gave up conservative,capitalist,neoliberal and libertarian ideals in our late teens and embraced reality and recognise these basic facts and realise just how much of a fraud and idiot Ayn Rand was.Your 25 years old or older and your still a libertarian and still think Ayn Rand is the greatest philosopher in the world then your probably not as smart as you think you are and your probably a bit of an asshole with the maturity of a pre teen.Ayn Rand is the sort of thing you grow out of in your mid to late teens only after about three years of being brainwashed by it.If you haven’t grown past that by your late teens then your still an emotionally retarded vacuous twat.Defenses that being a selfish prick leads to the betterment of humankind is the lowest form of philosophy and is responsible for the the war crimes committed by the American governement to seize the natural resources of other countries including oil,gas,coal etc with excuses that communisms altruism is responsible for more worse crimes is debunked by the fact that it was not real communism by definition and the fact that Mao,Stalin,Lenin were not fully true progressives despite having some progressive tenants with regards to the treatment or even liberal they were Osirian-lite watered down conservativism.They were not exactly altruistic individuals they encouraged competition between the state and private enterprises and other countries.The fact that Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Cambodia and Vietnam under Pol Pot and Ho Chi Min were state capitalism and not communism and socialism shows that they were by default abiding by the the same selfish asshole ethos of Ayn Rand and not the altruism of true of actual socialism and communism.The fact that dissidents were exiled,made to work in the gulags,tortured or executed,private enterprises being regulated to death and severely punished and that people were forced into slave labour to serve the state is kinda the exact opposite of altruism.Then of course that the government officials lived like kings and a life of luxury while the vast majority of people underneath them worked their asses off to give them that live of luxury and lived lives of poverty which is pretty much the same as capitalism.If you think this is altruism you have a pretty distorted view of reality.So yeah Mao,Stalin,Lenin,Che etc were not altruistic people they were just as much savages and dictators as Hitler and Trump and they prescribed to the same philosophy as Ayn Rand of being a selfish asshole as they exploited workers for cheap labour,committed genocide with no consequences and forced communes etc not the populace and ate and lived liked kings while the rest of populace lived in squalor and barely had enough to eat except of course after the deaths of Stalin,Lenin and Mao..Ayn Rands philosophy of being a selfish asshole has led to big pharma commiting mass genocide every year and being a selfish asshole has led to perpetual warfare in the Middle East that has wasted trillions of taxpayers money and cost millions of human lives and of course the Coronavirus genocide – the very thing her idiot libertarian followers hate the most.You praise Ayn Rand and  the glories of the free market capitalism as well as being a selfish asshole and yet despise wasting taxpayers money and hate perpetual warfare in the Middle East yet its your venerated philosophy of Ayn Rand of being a selfish asshole that is responsible for these occuring in the first place.The very things you hate that is wasting taxpayers money on illegal wars for oil – I’m mean spreading freedom and a healthcare industry that constitutes as mass genocide that is also a waste of taxpayers money,corruption and cronyism in Congress and perpetual warfare in the Middle East only exists because your idiot philosophy espoused by your dumbass prophets Ayn Rand and Milton Friedman is being carried out CEOs and corrupt politicians in the first place.Being a selfish asshole is why we have wasted trillions of taxpayers money and millions of human lives on illegal imperialist wars,being a selfish asshole is why perpetual warfare exists,being a selfish asshole is why cronyism and corruption exists,being a selfish asshole is why the for profit healthcare is one the worst in the western world and being a selfish asshole is why the vast majority of Congress in the form of the Republicans and corporate democrats,Nancy Pelosi,Steve Mnuchin,Mitch McConnell and Trump just committed mass genocide against their citizens for a quick buck.Hypocrisy much?And no these actions cannot be classed as altruism it’s is Ayn Rands philosophy in full force.Being a selfish asshole is why the vast majority of the RNC/DNC including those in Congress,their propaganda machines at CNN,Fox News and their donors are going to be tortured beyond human imagination for the next few hundred million years.Everytime this ethos of Ayn Rand of being a selfish asshole exists especially in free market capitalism it always ends with people dying and society collapsing in on itself.No amount of being bigger a more selfish asshole can change that – your going to have use the excuse of if we could just be a much bigger asshole or selfish prick then the last time then maybe things will work better this time around.Maybe next time around it will work.Its just as much a lame excuse as it wasn’t real communism and next time it will work used by the left.The definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.The question I pose to liberatarians and capitalists is this – When has being a selfish asshole by following the conservative ethos of Ayn Rands philosophy ever successfully worked out and benefited society as a whole?China?India?Thatcherite Britain?Iraq?Afghanisthan?Syria?Libya?Congo free State?Grenfell?Soviet Russia?Maoist China?Pol Pot Cambodia?Ho Chi Min Vietnam?New Zealand?Post Soviet Russia?Venezuela?Coronavirus??1929?2007?.Name one instance of this ever actually working out successfully..The definition of insanity is believing the same thing over and over again despite all of the evidence contradicting it over and over again.How can a person be against perpetual warfare when the ethos espoused by their prophets has led to perpetual warfare that wastes trillions of dollars.Hypocrisy much?Its also led to those selfish assholes being totally fucked no matter what.Maoist China,Che and Castro Guevera and Stalinist Russia were not collaborative efforts they were exploitative societies just like The United States where dominating authoritarian state owned corporations,undemocratically elected dictators and command economies that lacked democracy that dominated all facets of society decided everything such as how people should act,how they eat,how they breed etc which is not either collaboration or democracy it is the exact opposite of it similar to how private owned authoritarian corporations do the same for America. People in Soviet Russia,Maoist China etc worked and were paid money for that labour.If they didn’t work,they went broke and died just like regular capitalism.Therefore these were not slaves were by legal definitions workers just like modern day workers for Amazon,Wall Mart etc.Even if communes did exist they were only to benefit each individual commune not society as a whole and they were always at odds with each and competing with other for resources etc and also profits etc from both state owned and private industry.Furthermore the technical definition at least Marxist definition of commune is where work is done voluntarily not through enforcement of the state that it is is democratic in nature where individuals within the the communes work together for the common good outside of state influence or coercion.Most modern day American corporations like Amazon,Wall Mart etc use the same propaganda posters,mantras of working together for the common good and even personnel such as HR departments and people whose job it is to motivate others to work together as was present in Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc and also these were the same methods used in Maoist China and Soviet Russia as used in American corporations during the Cold War making the collectivised farms etc of Soviet Russia and Maoist China etc exploitive labour.The farmers etc of state capitalist Russia and China etc and even those who lived in communes were not working for the common good,they were being exploited for cheap labour by a bourgeoise state and no different that corporate CEOs and board of directors of Wall Mart,Amazon etc who use cheap exploitative labour in fufilling centres and sweatshops etc.Furthermore cooperatives,state owned enterprises and corporations and private enterprises present in these countries were constantly in direct competition with each other for markets,consumers and profits no different then modern day United States.The idea that there was collective collaberation in Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc was a myth.All business even separate state owned corporations were competing with each via the machinations of the free market system..A commune is an alternative term for intentional community.An intentional community is a voluntary residential community designed from the start to have a high degree of social cohesion and teamwork.The members of an intentional community typically hold a common social,political,religious or spiritual vision that often follow an alternative lifestyle and typically share responsibilities and property.Intentional communities can be seen as social experiments or communal experiments.The multitude of intentional communities includes collective households,cohousing communities,couliving,ecovillages,monasteries,survivalist retreats,kibbutzim,hutteries,ashrams and housing cooperatives.The way they are governed can depend on the situation.The most common form of governance of in intentional communities worldwide is democratic(64 percent), with decisions made by some form of consensus decision-making or voting.A hierarchical or authoritarian structure governs 9 percent of communities, 11 percent are a combination of democratic and hierarchical structure, and 16 percent do not specify.Hiearchial versions can involve elected officials who are voted in or out by democratic conditions thus allowing for democratic control to eliminate authoritarianism.The officials that are elected to run communes are not state officials and they are elected by the residents of the commune themselves and are not appointed by the state and do not take orders from the state with them usually being residents of the commune itself and thus are held accountable to them and are affected by its actions – if the elected official is a tyrant then they will be overthrown and if they run the commune poorly they will be affected by these bad results ie they will die of starvation if crop yields are low or they can be replaced by someone better.Therefore it is in the elected officials best interests to listen to the needs of their residents since they are residents of the commune itself and their actions affects them.They cannot take orders from the state as they are not elected by,installed by or affected by the state.The state has no direct or even indirect control of communes in any real way rather all control is through the residents themselves.The communes of Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc were not communes in the Marxist sense of the word or even typical sense as they were forced upon by the state rather than them forming through voluntary democratic means of individuals deciding to form themselves with them also run by the state therefore they were not communes.Furthermore they had no real democratic control both for themselves but also when interacting on a national level.They were not collaborative as they were competing with other communes and they were enforced by the state with the state actually controlling them with undemocratic authority.The crops etc they grew were sold as profits just like collectivised farms.Crops grown by communes are usually used by the communes themselves – those in Soviet Russia and Maoist China has their crops taken by the state anf allocated the the entire population again undemocratically.The same goes for all other “communes” in Soviet Russia,Cuba,Vietnam etc.Therefore it is possible within an actual socialist system for communes to form through voluntary free will and function democratically.Many communes exist today around the world with zero state influence and are democratic and are not collapsing in one themselves. In the German commune book, Das KommuneBuch, communes are defined by Elisabeth Voß as communities which:Live and work together.Have a communal economy, i.e. common finances and common property (land, buildings,means of production)Have communal decision making – usually consensus decision making.Try to reduce hierarchy and hierarchical structures.Have communalization of housework, childcare and other communal tasks.Have equality between women and men.Have low ecological footprints through sharing and saving resources.Meaning communes by their definition are voluntary organisations.They abide by the states laws but not the states directions in otherwards they do work together and have semi-autonomous governments and abide by the national and federal government laws and regulations but they are not run by the government in any way directly.In otherwards while they abide the laws of the state they are not managed or run by the state.Cooperatives also work in the same principle and the same goes for collectives.All cooperatives and collectives in Maoist China and Soviet Russia etc were like communes in these countries run directly by the state with no democratic control on part of the workers that is they could make some decisions for themeselves but they had no democratic control in a federal level which is what is present in socialism.Any democratic control they had for themselves were also limited.They were also forced upon the citizens as private land was seized from private factory and farmers and then given to peasants.Furthermore its likely that most collectives and cooperatives especially those that were farms due to there being limited democracy would have likely been no sharing of profits but rather everyone having a flat wage like the state run farms thus discintivisine hard work and true colleraberstion within them thus making people lazy and thus leading to lower yields and thus comntribured to famines etc.Had there been more democratic control within cooperatives and collectives and thus sharing of profits then its possible this could have encouraged farmers to work harder and thus increase productivity etc.Collective farming exists today to a significant degree in most of the world.In the European Union,collective farming is fairly common and agricultural cooperatives hold a 40% market share among the 27 member states .In the Netherlands,cooperative agriculture holds a market share of approximately 70%, second only to Finland.In France cooperative agriculture represents 40% of the national food industry’s production and nearly €90,000,000,000 in gross revenue, covering one out of three food brands in the country.There are also communes which practice collective agriculture.There is a growing number of community supported agriculture initiatives, some of which operate under consumer/worker governance, that could be considered collective farms.Oceans Spray is a well known major American agricultural cooperative that produces juice drinks from cranberries and other fruits.Collective agriculture today avoids the problems of those in state capitalist Maoist China and Soviet Russia etc because they are run by a CEO who organises things efficiently but who is elected by and controlled by the workers with this replicated by all major agricultural cooperatives.The collective farms in Soviet Russia,Maoist China etc were failures largely due to them forced on,dominated and controlled directly by the state with them overseeing everything and controlling everything and the crops and profits were seized by the state and then distributed to the whole populace(which goes against the whole concept of collectivisation which is to make them voluntary and communities self sufficient in the first place).Food produced by farms was sold to the state at fixed prices that were generally lower than the prices of the same food sold on the open market and all production, resource allocation, and food distribution was centrally controlled by the state capitalist Communist Party.They were in reality quasi state farms the exact opposite of collective farming.The farmers had no real democratic input into their functioning and they had no control over how the profits were distributed.The coercive aspect of accelerated collectivization meant that there was now, for the first time since 1949, widespread alienation and resentment in rural China. Rich and upper-middle peasant families, about 20 to 25 percent of the rural population, deeply resented their enforced pauperization. Even the poor and lower-middle peasants, suffered from diminished motivation to work in the new, large-scale, impersonal collectives.In a classic case of what economists call the “free-rider problem,” work points earned by each collective farm member had their cash value determined by the net value of the farm’s total harvest. Thus, each family’s income depended, in substantial measure, on the quality and quantity of the labor performed by all other farmers in the collective.With as many as 500 or 600 able-bodied peasants in a single collective, personal responsibility was very difficult to assess and monitor let alone to assign to individuals or families and the work was not monitored easily.Hence, the incentive to work diligently was correspondingly diminished for each individual. The strength of that disincentive was being directly proportional to the size of the collective: The bigger the collective unit, the weaker the incentive to work hard.Under this system, people tended to just go through the motions in their fieldwork. Content to free-ride on the efforts of the others, they paid scant attention to the quality or efficiency of the work performed.Collectivised farming can work on a small scale as you have people in close contact but on a large scale it needs human coordinators,democratically elected government planners or democratically elected farmers themselves  or even AI coordinating it otherwise this causes a disconnect between each worker who simply work by themselves without any coordination.Had the collective farms been better organised by a democratically elected planner via actual socialism this would have led to higher productivity and yields.Collectivisation in agriculture works best when dealing with small to medium farms because their is better communication with each other and less work but with larger farms you need coordinators.These don’t have to be government officials they can be people who work on the farm elected to that work ie they can be farmers themselves elected by other farmers to coordinate everything and organise the workload to ensure consistency etc.Workers on farms those who worked in coop and collectivised farms were being used for cheap labour as the crops themselves and profits were seized by the state and the workers paid a flat wage.Furthermore the people forced into collective farming were usually not actual farmers like with the Great Leap Forward and they had no democratic control of the working conditions there.They likely discentivised people to work and thus became lazy.They may have involved groups of people rearing crops on the same land but it did not necessarily mean it was voluntary or that they got a fair share of the profits which combined together would have produced lower yields.Normally especially in modern times collective farms and communes usually involve the work being voluntary with no coercion with them allowing all workers receive a share of the profits with their being democratic control of them and the profit motive which can involve profits usually shared together thus increasing each persons wages thus incentivising them to work harder and produce higher yields.Modern day collective farms involve human coordinators and also computer systems and AI.The farmers in these collectivised farms were those with zero experience in farming and mostly factory workers,steel workers etc and thus were incapable of knowing how to rear crops and likely to accept the pseudoscience put forward by the state with the fact the farms were still using manure and horse drawn ploughs instead of chemical fertilisers and tractors.The collectivised farms took directions directly the state and were thus quasi state farms.Modern day cooperative farms involve a democratically appointed human coordinators who are part of their workforce and computer networks to communicate with each other and discuss things with their better communication between all people involve and the use of modern machinery eliminating most work and allowing for more land to be catered to without free riding as well as democratically elected human coordinators as part of them to allow for labour to be better organised and reviewed alongside automation eliminates most work thus eliminating most of these problems and this incentivises people to work harder and produce more crops.Furthermore worker moral is better through the fact that they are allowed to sell goods for higher prices meaning wages rose for each person through higher productivity thus incentivising people to work harder.If its not voluntary,they have no democratic control and if the state extracts all of the profits and each persons is paid only a small flat wage as Soviet Russia and Maoist China then they are going to be lazy or demoralised and going to have lower yields and then famine sets in.Collectives normally are democratically run and so they allow for profits to be shared equally similar to cooperatives.They were forced collectivised state farms where the state had complete control over everything.In private farms only the owner receives an increase in profits and his workers get a flat wage whereas in collectives and cooperatives democratic process exist so  how wages are likely to be shared by the proportional rise system meaning this incentives people to work harder and increase yields.If the government runs collectivised farms etc then its likely that this removes this and causes yields to drop.This was likely the cause of poor outputs – forced collectivisation especially by Mao,Lenin and Stalin and lack of organised structures caused poor yields with it improving due to the reforms of Khrushchev and Mao making more reforms.Collectivised farms continued to exist under Khrushchev and all successive administrations and to this day in Russia and this extending to China.The fact that collectivised farms and even state run farms exist to this day in both China and Russia as well as the rest of the world and agricultural productivity has been increasing exponentially since 2000 after the fall of the Berlin Wall is proof that the concept of collectivised and state run farms automatically leads to decreases in agricultural productivity is bullshit and collective farms in Russia,China etc produce yields equivalent or better than private farms.It likely that that during both the Lenin and Stalin adminstrations and in Maoist China that due to their brutish force that they demoralised workers with the same happening under Mao at first it was forced upon though its likely that after the Great Famine that efforts were made to improve the working conditions and increase yields.Furthermore collectivisation was met with resistance by private farmers and those that did resist were sent to the gulags etc thus lowering the amount of people needed to function thus reducing yields.Furthermore cattle farmers who disagreed and protested slaughtered there animals earlier before the animals reached maturity thus further leading to lower yields with those as part of newly collectivised farms who owned horses who ploughed they fields etc were slaughtered by the private farmers as well.Furthermore, the absence of heavy agricultural machinery and of the horses and cattle that the private farmers had killed seriously handicapped the new collective farms.Up until 1953 when Khruschev came to power horses were still being used to plough fields because feudalism had held them back by several centuries as the rest of the world has abandoned horses for mechanised tractors in the 1700s.Some members of the Soviet government wanted the collectivisation process to be more gradual but Stalin etc caused it to be too quick and thus this shock was a factor in contributing to famines.Collectivised farming does not automatically lead to famines and reduced crop yields in comparison to private farms it is how it is implemented that does with it not the main cause of famines in Soviet Russia but contributing factors alongside war efforts,corruption and of course droughts in Maoist China that due to their brutish force that they demoralised workers with the same happening under Mao at first it was forced upon though its likely that after the Great Famine that efforts were made to improve the working conditions and increase yields.Furthermore collectivisation was met with resistance by private farmers and those that did resist were sent to the gulags etc thus lowering the amount of people needed for the farms to function thus reducing yields.lds with those who owned horses who ploughed they fields etc  slaughtered by the farmers as well.Had there been no resistance then it’s likely collectivised farms may not have been a factor with it because of greed on part of the farmers.Collectivised farms have like cooperatives involve all workers having a democratic say in working conditions and also equal rises in pay in proportion to profits thus meaning the more productive it is the higher the wages of everyone goes rather than just the owner of the land.Private farms involve the farmers hiring others to do all the work for them and have the majority of profits go to them or if they are run belt themselves all over the profits goes to them.Therefore being greedy assholes they were caused this in the first place.What these idiot private farmers didn’t realise is that through farming in proper cooperative farms it’s likely that they would have increased their profits and wages between 10-1,000 times than normal.They just didn’t like sharing – the greedy assholes.They wanted to sit on their ass all day and have others paid pittance to do all of the hard work and reap the profits rather than collectively share profits and have no democracy present.So yeah greedy idiot capitalists were responsible for the deaths of millions through directly causing famines in Soviet Russia not communists or socialists.The main causes of famines in Soviet Russia outside of droughts was through greedy asshole private capitalist farmers and to extent war efforts against the western world.Furthermore, the absence of heavy agricultural machinery  the horses and cattle that the peasants had killed seriously handicapped the new collective farms.Due to being several centuries behind the rest of the world farms in China and Russia still as late as 1953 were still relying on horses to plough fields and in protest at forced collectivisation private farmers slaughtered the horses that originally ploughed fields thus drastically hindering the collectivised farms as now people themselves were left to plough the fields hindering yields with other farmers in protest slaughtered animals earlier and boarded grain which exacerbated the famines.Again protesting private farmers killed the horses that were needed to plough the fields of these collectivised farms thus handicapping them even further.Therefore it was greedy capitalist farmers not the “socialist” or “communist” government that was responsible for collectivised farms failing in Soviet Russia and thus collectivised farms themselves were not a contributing factor to famines in the Soviet Union and Maoist China it was greedy and selfish private capitalist farmers slaughtering animals such as horses and cattle needed for the farms to function that was responsible.Some members of the Soviet government wanted the collectivisation process to be more gradual but Stalin etc caused it to be too quick and thus this shock was a factor in contributing to famines.With regards to Maoist China for that one famine it was the result of farmers being diverted to steel mills away from the farms that was the cause.Mao was convinced that diverting farmers to steel production collectivised farming would have been successful with fewer farmers as he believed the deep ploughing techniques,elimination of sparrows and tightly planting of seeds would cause higher yields with fewer farmers.Furthermore in most cases the state in the case of Maoist China beat farmers up thus discintivising them.So for Maoist China the fact farmers were being diverted to steel production thus lowering the amount of farmers alongside the bad planning of farming techniques led to famine not collectivisation itself.If installing proper collectivisation without a focus on steel production had  occurred it had also with better agricultural techniques would not have led to the famine.Collectivised farming does not automatically lead to famines and reduced crop yields in comparison to private farms it is how it is implemented that does with it not the main cause of famines in Soviet Russia but contributing factors alongside war efforts,corruption and of course droughts.Furthermore they were  not truly collectivised farming because they were forced upon the populace and workers in these collectivised farms had no democratic impact and also wages were like private farms paid based on ones hours contributing and not shared equally.The workers were even though they worked together on the same plot of land they had no democratic input and they were paid by the hours they worked like in private farms without the sharing of wages amongst them thus discentivising them.The grain was seized by the state and the state made profits from the grain not the farmers themselves who were paid flat wages and the prices of the grain was fixed.They were not proper collectivised farms in either Soviet Russia or Maoist China but rather quasi state farms and thus did not create the abundance needed.All of these other factors were contributing factors to the famines not collectivisation.Therefore collectivisation was not a contributing factors but rather the asshole private farmers.Collectivised farms exist today in Russia and China as well as the rest of the world and yet agricultural productivity is higher than ever and they produce yields on par with private farms if not better.If anything they can be more innovative and  having communes,coops and collectives does make a country communist if that were true then every country on the planet including America would be communist because every country on the planet has these – this is kindergarten level logic..They were state capitalist command economies which is by their nature undemocratic and not “collaboration”.Democratic processes did not exist in the command economies of Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc as the populace were not allowed much freedom in decision making as seen for example in the Hundred Flowers Campaign etc.The Hundred  Flowers Campaigns is a prime example of this.Just because cooperatives existed does not mean they were socialist because socialism involves the entire economy to be dominated by cooperatives and it involves all actions of the state including working regulations to be democratically decided.Workers in cooperatives did have control of the workplace but not of anything on a federal level.The power they had in controlling things was limited to the confines of each individual business with them unable to control taxes,worker etc regulations abc they were not even able to elect their leaders.Just because cooperatives existed does not mean they were socialist because socialism involves the entire economy to be dominated by cooperatives and it involves all actions of the state including working regulations to be democratically decided.Workers in cooperatives did have control of the workplace but not of anything on a federal level any control they had was only within the confines of each cooperatives.Socialism involves all facets of society democratised including both the actions of the state and each individual businesses.Remember the purpose of socialism is to democratise society so how can these administrations be considered socialist and democratic when not only did they never allow the population to ever take part in any democratic decision making or for matter Vladimir Lenin,Josef Stalin,Mao Zedong,Pol Pot,Kim Il-sung,Ho Chi Min,Che Guevara,Fidel Castro and even their more moderate successors where never actually elected through democratic processes in the first place.They carried out illegal coups and then secured control of their countries and operated authoritarian regimes etc much like American coups works.Teapot calling kettle black.They were not elected in the first place and all decisions were made by the state and not through democratic processes.The population had virtually no democratic input into electing leaders,voting on and voting on policies and indeed anything as everything was decided by the leader with no constitutional safeguards etc.Even the election of new leaders was done by the state and even the most democratic leaning members of the Communist Parties Deng Xiaoping,Nikita Khrushchev and Mikhail Gorbachev etc who carried out the majority of democratic reforms were not democratically elected and their actions were not democratically decided.The constitution was made from scratch also remember they inherited countries that were previously run as feudalist states similar to Medieval Europe where constitutions and democratic elections never existed.So you had tyrants overthrowing feudalist structures that had no constitutions imposing there constitutions that were undemocratic.Cooperatives did exist but cooperatives can exist in all variants of capitalism and socialism requires all actions of the state to be controlled through democratic processes.Even if cooperatives existed they had no meaningful control over the workplace and they could control regulations etc on a federal level.Since all of facets of society were modelled on corporations undemocratic social structure which is not socialism or communism this is state capitalism.This is the exact opposite of socialism whose main purpose is to democratise society.If the state is allowed to decide everything without democratic input it’s not socialism or communism it’s state capitalism because in state capitalism where society id modelled on corporations the state deciders everything without any input from the public.This is in contrast to socialism as the whole purpose of socialism if you read the works of Karl Marx or actual socialists is to to allow the populace to control all actions of the state to prevent the rise of dictators.Soviet Russia,Cuba and Maoist China were neither socialist or communist as the state was modelled on the hierarchies of corporations where the leader had complete control and the people have no democratic input they were thus state capitalist.This is how state capitalism works not socialism.This is different than say modern left wing “dictators” such as Luiz Inazio da Silvio,Evo Morales,Hugo Chavez etc who were elected through democracy and their reforms to change the constitution were done through democratic means.Socialism requires all actions of the state to be controlled democratically by the population and that people are elected democratically and thus prevents the rise of tyrannical dictators.It also requires that the leaders of a state be elected in the first place.This never happened in so called socialist countries.If these countries were “democratic” then you have a pretty distorted view of what democracy is.Therefore they were not socialism.Communism requires the complete abolishing of the state to the point that it no longer exists.Therefore they were not communist..Socialism involves everything be run as cooperatives and all actions of the state to be controlled by the populace.State owned corporations were the only enterprises that existed in Maoist China,Cuba,Soviet Russia etc that the state had control of because due to the profit nature of state owned corporations the money generated by profits was fed directly into the states treasury to be used for GDP,investing in infrastructure and social welfare which cannot occur in nationalisation and socialism.State owned corporations are the only way the state can generate profits to feed money into the treasury in order to fund infrastructure,social programmes and drive GDP and they in order to function need private corporations as competitors that are given bailouts and guaranteed markets in exchange for creating new money from scratch to fund the state owned corporations in a mutually beneficial positive feedback loop.Private enterprises need to exist as competitors especially private banks by them creating new money from scratch in the economy that is created to the national economy that eventually through employees of private enterprises buying goods from state owned enterprises creates new money that adds to the treasury and is why state owned corporations were the only way the state in Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Cambodia and Cuba could generate profits and why they needed private enterprises to generate new money from scratch in order to lift these countries several centuries ahead through the profits generated funding GDP,infrastructure and social welfare and to that they needed to also set up and ensure the survival of private enterprises to fund these state owned corporations and develop sectors of the economy they could not.Without private enterprises especially banks the money generated by the state would be recycled as infinitum and their would be no economic growth in GDP etc.The exponential growth of GDP growth in Maoist China from 1949-2020 except of course from the slight drop from the Great Chinese Famine as well as the exponential economic growth in Soviet Russia from 1917 except of course slight drops that coincided with drought caused famines and the exponential growth in GDP in Castro run Cuba shows this fact that private enterprises set up and bailed out by the state were pivotal in driving this exponential increase in GDP.Private enterprises set up and protected by the state were part of this exponential growth in the economy which is why state dominance in the economy began to drop overtime to allow for more privatisation that in turn generated new money from scratch adding more to the economy that eventually created more money that eventually ended up in the hands of the state owned corporations and added more money into the state treasury that improved investment into infrastructure and social programmes.Furthermore to fund these state owned corporations private enterprises were needed to be set up by the state in order to generate new money from scratch in order to eventually enter into the hands of these state owned corporations through state control gateway theory.This was done as per state control gateway control theory.This is not how socialism or communism either the bullshit or real definition works this is how state capitalism works.Chavez,Lula,Morales and Maduro despite corruption and nepotism they in fact earned their place as presidents of their countries through democratic processs by being elected democratically and any tyrannical changeds to the government such as abolishing term limits and other changes to the constitution were done through democratic processes.Yes Chavez tried to carry out a coup in 1992 but in the end the only way he became president was through democratic means.The actions and reforms of Chavez,Morales etc to change the constitution such as eliminate term limits,have the parliament filled with members of their own  party  were made possible through democratic processes that is the citizens of their countries decided through democracy to eliminate term limits,elect members of the same political party as Chavez into parliament and make other changes to the constitution,elect members of the same political party as Chavez into parliament and make other changes to the constitution.Therefore when the populace themselves voted to carry out these changes it was not corruption it was democratic processes at work and democracy is what capitalism hates because it prevents the rise of actual dictators that American governments are bed in with to get cheap oil and cheap labour.Venezuela could be considered a more democratic version of state capitalism because although it has the same structure as state capitalism it has more democratic features such as the populace making changes to the constitution etc.So you see thats why Maoist China,Cuba and Soviet Russia were never socialist or communist in the first place.Socialism and communism that is true “socialism” and “communism” are altruism and they are collaboration through democratic processs is what capitalists whether private or state owned capitalists want to destroy and shut down.In all instances yes land was seized and taken by the state but this is only possibly in state capitalism not communism or socialism.Furthermore in all so called socialist and communist countries the state pepped up private enterprises,bailed them out and guaranteed them markets and the amount of private corporations increased under Mao,Lenin,Stalin,Chavez etc this cannot occur in communism and socialism only state capitalism.How can a country be considered socialist or communist when the state actively sets up private enterprises and the amount of private corporations and their control of the economy actually increases under so called socialist or communist dictators.The government in all so called “communist” or “socialist” including Soviet Russia,Maoist China,Cuba etc carried out economic activity through state owned corporations and state owned corporations can only exist in state capitalism not socialism or communism.No one In the academic community takes libertarianism and even anarchism capitalism seriously simply because there is no bedrock or foundation for it function in the real world especially in the post scarcity world of AI and automation of the 21st century.It doesn’t have even the most basic foundation in the 20th century or pre post scarcity world.Both are pipe dreams led by sociopaths.Marx on the other hand despite any flaws he had was well versed in human behaviour,psychology and economics for his time more than that twat Rand and Friedman and as stated was well ahead of his time with him understanding the effects of automation had on the workface and as stated if alive today would have appalled by the basterdisations of his philosophy by Stalin,Lenin,Pol Pot and Mao etc as although he believed in government control of the means of production to eventually lead to a moneyless and stateless society he did not advocate the sloppiness of these dictatorships and even the idea that the state should have complete control of all facets of society that would have been disgusted him as he believed only the means of production should be controlled and not media etc as it should be controlled by society itself and the government acting with it him unable to comprehend the advancements of automation,medicine,genetics and AI in the last century much less the last twenty years that would make his perfect society possible.This is why communism is now achievable in the 21st century rather than in the twentieth century.The argument that “it wasnt real communism” is a valid argument since communism itself is the complete absence of the state meaning that all attempts of the 20th century from Russia,Asia,Cuba etc that involved state ownership of production and all of society were in fact and essence Osirian-lite state capitalism,not communism thus making leftists claims true and those on the conservative right propaganda.

Planned & Command Economies explained:
A planned economy is a type of economic system where investment,production and the allocation of capital goods takes place according to economy-wide economic plans and production plans.A planned economy may use decentralised,participatory or Soviet-type forms of economic planning.The level of centralization or decentralization in decision-making and participation depends on the specific type of planning mechanism employed.In planned economies the state can or more often cannot own the means of production but also allies both private competitors and coops to exist.Planned economies like command economies can occur in state capitalism alongside all other forms of capitalism alongside all types of socialism.This can occur democratically in non market and market socialism and relaxed forms of state capitalism,mixed economies,all types of socialism where the states control of the economy is extremely relaxed such as in Finland,Norway,Sweden,Denmark and modern day Vietnam,China,South Korea,South Korea,Denmark,Finland,Norway are planned economies.Decisions in a planned economy are never absolute and thus allows for democratic input,variables and also flexibility in the result of decisions with the planning and outcomes never controlled and imposed by law giving coop and private enterprises the freedom to decide what is produced,how much is produced and to a degree prices etc.In otherwards it is not the state deciding everything but it involves participation from even private enterprises and coops and even citizens themselves working together with the government to plan out economic outcomes primarily to prevent boom and bust cycles,depressions,recessions,economic shocks etc to keep the economic growth of a country soaring exponentionally but stable so that if recessions etc do occur they can be predicted with any shocks that do occur being cushioned by forward planning that leads to recessions being gradual rather than sudden and allows for countermeasures to them to developed beforehand thus cushioning their blow or even eliminated altogether.Planned economies are where the public through private corporations,coops,democratic processes work alongside the state to plan the economic outcomes of the coming years or decades as well as countermeasures to economic shocks and recessions to prevent them spiralling out of control and prevent government overspending through democratic processes to prevent recessions and economic shocks.This involves private corporations allowed to corner the same areas of the state that is they can have business wherever they want but the state lays down financial,worker and environmental regulations to prevent boom and bust cycles and ensure stable exponential growth in the economy with private corporations abiding by this as they will unlikely to be bailed out and thus they can collapse no matter how big they are unlike the “too big to fail” mantra of state capitalist America.It can occur in all types of socialism and variants of capitalism including state capitalism and is what people like Bernie Sanders etc and socialists of all types advocate and as stated are present in the Nordic model of Denmark,Sweden,Finland etc.All decisions are never absolute and democratic process allow for flexibility and leeway and minor changes to be made and allows all citizens to contribute to the planning of the economy and partake in democratic processes with it eliminating the state having complete control as unlike command economy as stated private enterprises and citizens are allowed input into how they are enforced.Planned economies are suited to countries that are able to sustain themselves in terms of agriculture enough that they can sell cheap food on international markets but still net importers of food with it also when they have reach full ability to sustain themselves and also when they are able to sell natural resources like oil and raw elements they have in such high abundance to allow for lax exponentional growth in the economy.Planned economies are more desireable and effective than command economies as they allow for democratic input from the private sector,coops and more importantly the general public to control the planning thus it is not really centralised planning as in command economies but democratic planning as it allows for variability,flexibility and limits state control while at the same elimining boom and bust cycles and stable exponentional growth.Planned economies are suited to certain economies such as those in resource rich countries especially in areas such as Europe,America and to an extent Asia who due to climate and other factors can become self sufficient in term of agriculture enough to feed themselves and also export large amounts of crops and also have other resources such as raw elements,fossil fuels etc to increase GDP.Command economies are suited primarily to Asia and Russia where the climate and lack of sufficient  arable land limits their expansion of agriculture to the point that they can only produce enough to be barely self sufficient and thus command economies is needed to ensure economic growth is stable to prevent boom and bust cycles that can cause famines due to inflation and increases in the price of food.

Command economies are where the state has absolute control of the economy and can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism because of their undemocratic nature and is what is found in Soviet Russia,Maoist China,Castro Cuba,North Korea.Growth in both command and planned economies may be slow at first,but it is both incremental and exponentional and so if a global or localised recession hits then planned economies will continue to grow while other non planned economies collapse with the planned economies GDP eventually surpassing other non planned economies as unplanned economies will crash into a bust cycle while a  planned economies GDP etc will continue to rise unhindered surpassing the unplanned economies GDP.At first growth may be slow and incremental for both the private and state sector but overtime it becomes exponentially faster but stable every year with the fact that boom and bust cycles are avoided ensures that growth for all people involved in both the state and private sectors becoming richer overtime exponentionally as growth in GDP and wages and earnings constantly going up on forever.After at most 5-10 years the growth for even the lowest income brackets are exponentional and continue forever whereas a completely deregulated economy will have severe crashes and recessions every decade or even few years and the hardest hit are always the lower classes as in capitalism economies as the rich get away untarnished and bailed out and the poor and even middle classes are always left picking up the pieces.Even if the income brackets of the rich and poor are still wide in command and planned economies the income and thus the living standards of the poorest individuals are still exponentially better than before and they are able to lift themselves out of poverty and live a high standard of living on par with with what was previously the upper class with this wealth increasing exponentially every year.As stated this is because their incomes and wealth in accordance with the exponential growth also increases exponentially meaning after 5-10 years they will be earning anywhere between 10-1,000 times more than before and this will continue rising exponentially forever with no chance of a recession.The same goes for the wealthy.So both the poor and wealthy have their incomes rise exponentially every year forever after a slow 5-10 year growth period even if income brackets are still wide.After at least a decade the poorest of the poor who formerly earned five figure salaries or even less on minimum wage will be earning at least six figure or even seven figure salaries every year for doing no extra work and thus will be getting exponentially better so even though a wide gap between rich and poor exists the poor are still getting exponentially wealthier every year and they are earning possibly even millions or tens of millions every year.Even if a wealth gap exists it becomes narrower overtime and if it doesn’t narrow and is still wide the lowest income bracket can be as high as six figure salaries between $100,000 – $ 900,000 a year.Even if a drop in the economy occurs then it will not be as severe as an unregulated economy thus still preventing chaos and allow planned economies to continue to rise and preventing huge losses and negates bailouts and cronyism.This is because countermeasure would have been developed such as a lock box containing collected taxes and other countermeasures to ensure that a planned economies recession will end much quicker than that of in planned economies.Furthermore they will have saved enough in nest eggs to have enough to weather the storm until a recovery in the economy.Command economies can be discarded in favour of planned economies once a country has the ability to expand agricultural output and is self sufficient enough and has enough money gained from the command economy to be able to buy cheap food from other countries to no longer have stringent government control to keep itself fed with a planned economy adopted in order to prevent inflation etc to keep food prices stable and ensure stable exponential economic growth.Adopting complete deregulation would cause hyperinflation and skyrocketing food prices.It can also be discarded once the economy is developed enough to allow for more privatisation as per state control gateway control theory and to increase GDP exponentially and to allow for more democratisation of it.All countries that had command economies such as Maoist China,Soviet Russia had to out of necessity to avoid boom and bust cycles and hyperinflation to keep food prices stable and ensure stable exponential economic growth to increase GDP and wages to gradually lift people out poverty and allow the state to build up enough money in the treasury to invest in social programmes and infrastructure and thus allow for adoption of democratic planned economies for more privatisation as per state control gateway theory to exponentially increase GDP.It is the availability of arable land,climate etc that determines the expansion of agriculture and its ability to survive  economic shocks and the scarcity or abundance of raw elements and even oil etc that can determine if a country can be free market capitalism,planned economies or command economies.If a country is not suited for large scale agriculture to make them self sufficient and export food due to the lack of available arable land as well as climate etc that forces them to be a net importer of food then command economies have to be adopted to ensure that the rate of economic growth is sustainable and does not result in boom and bust cycles which if not adopted leads to boom and bust cycles and hyperinflation which can then result in consistent famines caused by skyrocketing food prices.If a country is not able to expand its agricultural output and be self sufficient and be a net exporter then it has no choice to adopt command economies to keep the price of food stable and at affordable prices and ensure stable exponential growth and prevent hyperinflation and boom and bust cycles that would cause the price of food to skyrocket and also prevent their ability at importing food is stable and thus would cause consistent famine.This is especially relevant because said countries usually have to be net importers of food and hyperinflation and boom and bust cycles would negatively affect their ability to import food.Food shortages did occur in Russia and China but they would have much much worse descending into famine  and had higher death tolls had private farmers did not exist and had they adopted completely unregulated free market economies as the boom and bust cycles would have caused hyperinflation and other economic problems similar to the Scissor Crises that would lead to consistent famine year long every year due to fluctuations in the price of grain of meat.These food shortages and famines were always caused by the climactic conditions,lack of arable land and presence of pests thus making it extremely difficult for the country to produce enough to feed its population and export enough.The state had to control the economy to prevent consistent famines caused not by drought but rather hyperinflation,boom and bust cycles..Command economies in these countries were adopted to prevent boom and bust cycles and hyperinflation to thus thus prevent skyrocketing food prices in otherwards they are applied to countries that can’t expand agriculture in order to keep the price of food low and affordable and keep their ability to import food at a sustainable rate.The countries both Russia and China due to the lack of arable land and climate was therefore prone to famines and food shortages by there very nature and thus Mao,Stalin and Lenin had to install command economies and at the same time allow for private farmers to exist alongside private retailers to prevent hyperinflation that would have left people too poor to buy food thus causing more severe famines and higher death tolls every year.Command economies were also installed to ensure they could afford the ability to import food from other countries by having stable,exponential growth preventing boom and bust cycles and hyperinflation that would negatively affect their ability to import food.If boom and bust cycles occur then they will not be able to import food food and for countries like China and Russia that rely heavily on food imports due to climatic and environmental factors being unable to import food this would lead to consistant and severe famines with high death tolls.China,Cuba and Russia etc were and also still today are net importers of food and even to this day in the 21st century still regulate the economy especially agriculture through command economies due to the fact that they are still unable to adopt an unregulated free market economy it’s because they are still net importers of food and have very little arable land and are prone to pests and unpredictable climates with if they did today adopted a unregulated free market capitalist economy the economy would nosedive into hyperinflation etc followed by boom and bust cycles  and the price of food would skyrocket and they would be plunged into consistent famines year after year.If a country is a net importer of food then its largely because they have very little arable land to grow crops to sustain themselves,have unpredictable climates and are prone to hurricanes,floods and droughts etc that can devastate entire farms that can result in frequent crop failures and are overpopulated in relation to the ratio of arable land in comparison to that thus means they have no choice to import large amounts of food and also no choice to adopt command or planned economies because the command and planned economies prevent boom and bust cycles,hyperinflation that prevent skyrocketing food prices and also ensures they can afford to both export and import food.Countries that experimented in “communism” and “socialism” were net importers of food because they are unable to feed themselves due to geopolitical factors and usually they had to rely on each other to trade crops,oil,goods etc on international markets etc with them wholly reliant on each other meaning a shock to one countries economy and one country pulling out of the bargain would effect all other countries with them also reliant on western countries with economic sanctions and embargoes putting things into chaos and -lunging them into food shortages.The deregulation of Russia in 1991 that then caused the Special Period,1994 famine in North Korea proves this.Economic embargoes by the west particularly during the entirety of the Cold War complicated things even further and this led to constant food shortages.A combination of poor climate,lack of arable land,food embargoes as well as corruption created a positive feedback loop and this meant that food was constantly scare and that people had to wait in line for food and only the wealthy could afford luxuries.This was exacerbated by the deregulation of the 1990s of Yeltsin which then in turn affected both Cuba and China and the only reason things got better in the 2000s was because of improved agricultural productivity through government led research and improved GDP and wages through planned economies that allowed most people to afford more food and more luxuries coupled with lack of embargoes and the west removing trade restrictions with these gone that they can now import more exotic crops and food from other countries at cheap prices which is why food shortages and bread lines are not common today as they were in the Soviet Era.It’s basic economics at first something is expensive and only the rich and elites can afford them until the economy and technological development improves as well as it possible to import luxuries cheaply from other countries and then the average citizens can afford them just like mobile phones etc with the reforms of Yeltsin slowing this down exponentially.However it took Russia much longer due to the deregulation and free market reforms of Yeltsin.Food shortages and bread lines are still common in China and Russia even though they have adopted free market capitalism and they are net importers of food.You could convert all available arable land in Cuba,Russia,China and even North  Korea etc into private farms and it still won’t make a difference they still would have food shortages and still would have to import food from other countries and adopting a completely deregulated economy like in Russia under Yeltsin  would result in boom and bust cycles and extreme hyperinflation and this would result in famine and bread lines similar to those in Venezuela and Russia under Yeltsin due to the fact that hyperinflation would cause the price of food to skyrocket either directly or indirectly by affecting fertiliser prices abc you would have bread lines and empty shelves in the stores.The massive hyperinflation and food shortages in Venezuela are the result of deregulation and runaway capitalism and the fact that the country has to become a net importer.You could have all businesses in these countries be private corporations and they would still have food shortages and adopting massive deregulation and complete free market capitalism would lead to hyperinflation,boom and bust cycles and mass starvation.Economic sanctions and embargoes on these countries can also contribute to food shortages and famine as with Venezuela and Cuba.The adoption of completely deregulated economies in modern day China,Russia and other countries that are net importers of food would result in hyperinflation,skyrocketing food prices and famine.This is why political and economic embargoes on Cuba,North Korea,Soviet Russia,China,Venezuela and not socialism and communism always contribute to food shortages and famine.The reason why food is so scarce in Cuba,North Korea is because of economic embargoes from the rest of the world.As a result they cannot have completely deregulated economies and need command and planned economies to not only to prevent food shortages and hyperinflation etc in their own countries but to also prevent them in countries that are dependant for international trade as of a recession and hyperinflation occurs in their country this will impact their ability to import and export food,oil etc from other countries especially from other state capitalist countries.All of these countries North Korea,China.Russia,Cuba etc were prone to shortages,famine and bread lines occured prior to 1917 and 1949 in ancient times,occured during the 20th century and still occur in the 21st century under “capitalism” with them still occuring due to bad weather but are not as bad because of government led research into agriculture has increased agricultural productivity exponentially and using planned economies and stringent fiscal and agricultural regulations..Command or planned economies and government regulations must be adopted to keep prices of food stable both due to the low ability from native based farms and also from the need to import large amounts of farms.Without command or planned economies and regulations there would be massive hyperinflation leading to skyrocketing food prices and also their ability to import food would be negatively affected to the point that it would become too expensive or impossible to export and import food from other countries thus leading to mass starvation and famine.Hyperinflation would not only make it difficult for people to buy native crops and meat from their local retailers due to skyrocketing prices but also make it impossible for the state to import crops and meat from other countries due to hyperinflation and in turn it would be difficult to export food to other countries due to the imbalance in the economy and weakening  of your currency and GDP thus causing a massive cycle of positive feedback and a national famine due to it becoming too expensive to buy food at your local shops including native crops and too expensive to import food from other countries with it even making it too expensive to export food to other countries causing a vicious positive feedback loop causing the hyperinflation and food prices to skyrocket even further.The first thing that is ever effected by recessions and hyperinflation is the price of food and when this happens people go hungry and when people grow hungry they begin to die of starvation and when that happens people go on riots and begin to rebel in the streets against their leaders which why planned or command economies must be adopted and the state needs to have control in certain sectors of society and must decide where the private sector can intervene to ensure stable exponential growth and consistent affordable prices in food.This hyperinflation due to deregulation and lack of command or planned ecomies is what happened in Venezuela under Chavez and Maduro,in the Scissor Crises in Soviet Russia and to a degree in the Great Chinese Famine with it showing that the Great Chinese Famine was a mistake caused by a misinformed government and not a planned famine with and this was what Lenin,Stalin etc also wanted to avoid through command economies this in turn affects the price of energy such as oil,electricity,heating and other basic goods and services and when that happens people get cold etc and then die the real shit hits the fan as this causes a positive feedback loop.Every country that adopted an unregulated free market economy such as Russia in 1991,Venezuela under Chavez and also after the 1929 Great Depression and 2007/2008 Recession and the pandemic in 2020 it was followed by recessions,hyperinflation and also food shortages on local to global levels leading to bread lines not because we forgot how to grow food,socialism but because the recessions caused a increase in food prices,the price of fertiliser and oil etc all of which led to skyrocketing food prices and food shortages across the entire world.This is why command and planned economies must be put in place in countries that are unable to sustain large populations through agriculture in their own countries and are net importers of food to ensure stable food prices with it also why financial regulations must be present on Wall Street to prevent recessions that then cause skyrocketing food prices not only in America but also worldwide.The state in countries like this can never adopt a completely deregulated economy as seen by Venezuela,Yeltsin era Russia and the 2007/2008 recession with the state always going out of its way to prevent famines in the first place by installing planned economies and setting ups and bailing out private farmers.After adoptions deregulation and no planned or command economies there are recessions and hyperinflation and the price of food skyrockets and after this you get food shortages and then you get spikes in the price of oil etc and this affects heating,transportation etc.The exception was The Great Chinese Famine which was a mistake even Mao regretted and of course the Holdomor.The factors that determine this are a countries ability to feed itself is its population,its climate,its size and the amount of arable.Each of these countries China,Russia etc are the largest and most populated countries in the world with Cuba one the largest island countries and to a degree North Korea but they have the least amount of arable land in comparison to their population in comparison to the rest of the world as most land is unsuitable for agriculture and worst weather suited for agriculture as the land that is arable is in areas where the weather is unpredictable and always has frequent droughts,frosts,flooding etc especially in areas suited for agriculture in otherwards areas where the soil is suited for agriculture the weather is unpredictable and prone to drought,frosts,floods etc on a yearly basis – it is a miracle you can grow anything there.Cuba,China,Russia have always been victims of food shortages and famines ever since ancient time thousands of years before Mao,Stalin,Lenin,Castro etc were born or even before Karl Marx were born,they were suffering food shortages in the 20th century in comparison to the rest of the world and they still are in the 21st century prone to food shortages and famine in modern times since been under the control of private farmers and it’s always been because the fact that the small area of arable land is in areas that have weather unconducive to large scale agriculture with this meaning they had to adopt command economies to prevent future famines caused by hyperinlation and boom and bust cycles.Without government regulation or planned economies or command economies the countries would go into cycles of boom and bust cycles and hyperinflation and this would cause food prices to skyrocket and cause constant famine in these countries.You could convert all available arable land to privately run farms in China,Russia,Cuba etc and you would still have food shortages and they will still need to be net importers of food.The reason they have increased agricultural production is like everyone else – the Green Revolution,intensive government led research into crops,better mechanisation and adoption of chemical fertilisers.In comparison most other countries can be self sufficient because their population is low enough in comparison to their size and they have larger amounts of arable land ratio to their population and land size and the areas that have arable land have stable and predictable climates that is warm springs and summers and moist and cool autumns with frost,snow and storms and floods etc only occurring in autumn and winter after the crops are harvested and they are in areas not prone to droughts,floods,heatwaves,hurricanes etc that can decimate a years harvest with in cases that they are in these areas they have the same crops grown in parts of the country that grow them as well as a backup as with Florida and California with oranges.This is why agriculture is a top priority in Cuba,Russia,China etc by the heads of state more than anywhere else in the world that must be regulated and overseen by the state and why these countries are taking climate change more seriously than the western world.They cannot have deregulated economies as to do so would cause hyperinflation and boom and bust cycles that would cause the price of food to skyrocket.The idea that they were only prone to famines during “communist” or “socialist” regimes is a myth alongside the one that they under capitalism are magically able to produce enough food to feed themselves.They we’re prone  to food shortages and famines for thousands of years before the revolutions of Lenin and Mao etc that occurred on a frequent basis leading to constant famines and food shortages and bread lines,were prone to famine and food shortages during the 20th century during “communism” and “socialism” and are still prone to famine and food shortages and bread lines today in the 21st century even after adopting free market capitalism and they always will be under capitalism unless unless you adopt Aquaponics,in vitro meat and algae etc.All countries that have experimented with “socialism” or “communism” or more correctly state capitalism may be the largest countries in the world but the amount of land that is arable that is suitable for agriculture is a small percentage less than 10% compared to their large populations ranging in the tens of millions and billions and the vast majority of land in areas that have arable land suitable for agriculture suffers frequent frosts,floods,droughts and heatwaves routinely every year during the time of the year that is suitable for growing crops such as spring and summer meaning frosts,droughts and floods occur during the growing season of the crops grown there before harvesting times thus leading to substantial percentages of crops being decimated before harvesting every year – it is a miracle you can grow anything there and agricultural productivity was stagnant in these countries before the revolutions of Mao,Stalin and Che etc for centuries and after these “communist” or “socilist” revolutions by Mao,Castro,Lenin agricultural productivity began to rise exponentially every year due to intensive government research and investment,the Green Revolution and command economies with exceptions being caused by droughts,the Great Chinese Famine,the deregulation of Russia in 1991 and the Special Period with them still facing bread lines and food shortages due to complex geopolitical factors and thus must be dependant on importing food from other countries thus meaning economic sanctions and embargoes can cause famines etc.You can use google images to search for graphs on agricultural productivity in Russia,Cuba and China etc to confirm this.These graphs show substantial exponential increases in agricultural productivity every year except in 1959 in Cuba and 1992 in Russia and the 1990s in Cuba because of deregulation and bad agricultural practices with other instances coinciding with other drops in productivity coinciding with droughts,floods etc across the region.This is where the myth that communism and socialism always leads to famine as it was the countries climate and geopolitical state that caused these and it was efforts of the state to encourage private farmers that prevented outright consistent famine through command economies.There were constant famines and food shortages in so called “communist” countries prior to the revolutions of Mao,Lenin etc with only two being man made the Holodmor and The Great Chinese Famine the rest were caused by bad weather and capitalism.These countries have always had to have to deal with food shortages and famines on a consistent basis before,during and after their experiments in “communism” and “socialism” therefore these countries have to adopt command or planned economies out of economic survival because of their inability to have large scale agriculture as planned and command economies prevent hyperinflation and boom and bust cycles which would cause the price of food to skyrocket to the point that it would make it impossible for people to buy food,impossible to export food and impossible to import food leading to extensive economic recessions and mass starvation and famine on a scale with the Great Chinese Famine every year.Russia,China and so on are despite being “capitalist” and having the majority of farms under private control are  still prone to food shortages and bread lines and are  still net importers of food because of the weather through frequent droughts.If in 1917 and 1949 they adopted deregulated free markets or even American style capitalism,libertarianism they would have even more famines and more bread lines.They always have been prone to famines,bread lines,food shortages due to geopolitical and climatic factors and continue to be in modern times after adopting free market capitalism.In fact during the adminstrations of Mao,Lenin,Stalin etc agricultural productivity was increasing exponentially every year except of course during shortages caused by drought.Poor infrastructure due to the countries being several centuries behind the rest of the world also was a factor to food shortages.There was a sharp decline in the agricultural output 1991 in all countries because of the reforms by Yeltsin and the market reforms of China caused a ripple effect between all countries as all other countries were trading food etc with each other and when the Russian economy tanked it caused food shortages in Cuba,China and North Korea.These countries have since ancient times were prone to famines and food shortages and even in modern day capitalist economies where most if not all farms are privately owned they are still prone to bread lines,food shortages etc because of lack of available arable land and unpredictable climates and weather for the same reason they were in 1917-1990 during their so called “communist” or “socialist” era  and before the revolutions of 1917-1950.You could have all farms be privatised and have a completely free market economy with zero state interference or limited interference like the rest of the world and they still will be prone to food shortages and bread lines and they still need government regulations especially planned and Command economies to prevent hyperinflation,boom and bust cycles which will cause food prices to skyrocket.These countries are the largest countries in the world but only less than 5-10% of their land is suitable for agriculture and this land is prone to drought,floods,frost on a yearly basis during growing seasons thus making it difficult for the countries to be self sufficient and thus must rely on importing food from across the world and must adopt regulations and also planned or command economies to stabilise food prices and its a miracle you can grow anything there.The countries are even in modern times even by adopting full privatisation of farms etc and the huge exponential gains in productivity are still net importers of food and if a country is a net importer of food it is because they are unable to sustain themselves in terms of agriculture and so they have to import food to feed themselves and must rely on importing food from other countries with them having to export as little to prevent famine but enough to make a profit and the ratio of how much to export to importing changing every year this was true in prior to the revolutions of Mao,Lenin etc and during the 20th century and is still true today.This is why food shortages and bread lines have always been a problem in China,Russia etc during their “communist”  and “capitalist” years.The countries had exponential growth in agricultural productivity from the start of 1917-1949 after the revolutions of Lenin,Mao with prior to the revolutions of Mao,Stalin agricultural production was stagnant for centuries under feudalism with only one or two famines such as the Holdomor,Special Period,reforms of Yeltsin and Great Chinese Famine being intentional or accidental with food shortages a result of bad weather and the fact they were still up until the 1950s using horse drawn and human ploughs and manure because they were held back by feudalism by several centuries with them by the Green Revolution able to afford mechanised tractors,chemical fertilisers to increase productivity.Even though agricultural production is rising exponentially in modern times they still are prone to food shortages due to the weather and the fact they are exporting more with once a drought etc occurs exports have to decreased or halted and imports increased with them as stated despite this increase in agricultural productivity they are still net importers.It is a countries availability of arable land,predictable climate and thus in turn its rate of agricultural productivity and expansion and thus ability to feed itself and also export food based on the amount of arable land and predictability of climate that determines what type of economy it can adopt whether it is a command economy,planned economy or various types of free market systems and whether it is an net importer or net exporter of food.The solution to this for the future is Aquaponics and genetic engineering.The amount of agricultural land under state control or private control depends on different factors of each command economy country such as population demographics of rural areas and cities,amount of arable land and of course climate etc.Just because state farms need private farms does not automatically insinuate that state run farms are inherently inefficient and that private farms are more productive than the profit motive it may be that in certain countries state run farms are better suited towards meeting the need of large densely urban populations while private farms are suited to rural areas to produce just a little bit extra to feed rural people that need that little bit extra on the side to prevent them starving..Again population dynamics and demographics in comparison to the amount of land will determine how much state control is needed agriculture and how much is in the private sector.The level of agricultural productivity will also determine this.Sometimes in certain countries,certain climatic conditions  and certain economic circumstances the state can in fact produce higher yields on state run farms than private farms.The private farms in certain conditions and command economies produce extra crops due to the profit motive with them used to produce for those most prone to famines and also for some exports with as stated the state sometimes producing more.This can affect the ratio of private of state ratio of farmland in a country forced to use a command economy.This can apply to other sectors of the economy and  vary from country to country and also vary from administration to administration and also to changing geopolitical and economic factors and of course climate and improvements agricultural productivity.If the profit motive is a contributing factor to agricultural productivity then state run farms and collectivised farms can produce just as much as private farms depending on the amount of money each person is paid from the profits generated.If the state is generous and pays each worker a sizeable portion of profits then it can expect higher yields with if collectivised farms are democratic and allow profits to be shared thus it can expect higher yields.If collectivised farms are forced,undemocratic and if profits are seized by the state then its likely that yields will be low.Capitalism can just as equally though private corporations can reduce productivity if they pay their workers very little and treat them like shit.If a country through different economic circumstance and improved mechanisation,improved varieties of crops ie similar to the Green Revolution may change the ratio of private farms to state farms with in some countries meaning more private control of agriculture or more state control of agriculture with the types of crops grown also affecting this – complicating things even further.Other countries with command economies such as Cuba etc also are not suited for large scale agriculture and thus have to adopt command economies.Furthermore if a country is able to increase its agricultural productivity exponentially through genetic engineering,new varieties and also chemical fertilisers,improved mechanisation and also aquaponics then perhaps it can relax command economies,adopt planned economies and even adopt free market economies but it still needs to regulate the agricultural sector or at least support it financially through subsidies to prevent hyperinflation,food shortages and famine.Therefore the adoption of a command economy or planned economy is wholly dependent on agricultural output and exports because the economy needs to be  planned in order to prevent hyperinflation induced famines.Hence why countries that are able to sustain themselves in terms of agricultural capacity do not need command or planned economies.If they are able to sustain themselves then they don’t need them but they can adopt at least planned economies and regulations to prevent economic shocks.Therefore it was the ability for countries such as Soviet Russia,China etc to become self sufficient in agriculture that allowed then to adopt free market principles.This is noted by the 1991 economic crash and exponential lose in agricultural productivity in Russia that resulted from Boris Yeltsins reforms and is why it can now only after government intervention in 2000 that resulted in exponentially increasing yields of grain etc that they were able to successfully embrace free market economics meaning countries can only embrace free market economics once it has become able to be self sufficient in terms of agricultural productivity and thus able to feed itself and become a net exporter of agricultural foods.Same goes for China and all other communist countries with the exponential increase under Mao and Khruschev etc being the leading cause for the liberalisation of the economy.The dominance of state control in Maoist China and Soviet Russia were done partly due to need to prevent famines through planned and command economies with them less authoritarian through having democratic institutions put into place.Thus a country can only embrace free market capitalism and planned economies and discard Command economies with limited regulations only until it has gained the ability to become somewhat self sufficient in terms of agriculture productivity with conversely the more exponentially higher agricultural productivity becomes the less market orientated it becomes and thus more it moves towards post scarcity economics.The factors that affect a countries ability to embrace more market orientated economies are the amount of arable land they have,climate,population size and density,international markets and current GDP and political and economic embargoes.The adoption of command economies  is done primarily to prevent boom and bust cycles,hyperinflation and skyrocketing food prices and famines when a country has not yet been able to produce enough agricultural output to sustain exponential GDP growth that enables it to be able to increase the amount of crops it imports.Command economies are adopted by countries to allow for stable economic growth and prevent boom and bust cycles,hyperinflation to prevent famines only when agricultural output is low with once agricultural output is increased through improvements in agricultural methods such as seed varieties,genetic engineering and mechanisation etc it can sell enough to increase GDP to the point that it can afford to import more crops at cheaper prices allowing it adopt more flexible planned economies.Therefore the adoption of Command economies is wholly dependent on a countries agricultural output to keep prices of food stable enough to be affordable to everyone and cheap enough for excess to be sold in international markets with once the GDP is advanced enough the country can afford to import more food at cheaper prices while agricultural productivity increases at which point they can adopt planned economies that are more flexible and democratic.If a country is unable to produce enough to feed itself and sell excess on international markets then it is therefore unable to adopt unregulated free market  economies or even planned economies and thus must adopt command economies.Command economies are therefore adopted only by countries that are unable to feed themselves and not able to sell enough on international markets.Unregulated free markets can never be adopted by a country that is a net importer of food and is unable to feed itself.This can only occur when it’s producing enough to be able to freckles itself and sell enough on international markets with this unlikely in most countries using conventional agriculture and only possible through Aquaponics.This is called the agricultural gateway theory.Once a country is no longer a net importer of food it can then allow itself to become a net exporter and thus allow deregulation in the rest of the economy.However to ensure this is sustainable regulation must exist in agriculture,forestry and even conservation to ensure that stable land is not denuded and that it is sustainable which our current free market lacks with regards especially with the Amazon where lack of regulation or poorly enforced regulation is leading to unsustainable agricultural practices which is leading to deforestation,desertification thus leading to the point that Brazil will no longer be able to be a net exporter of food and thus will no longer be able to adopt a free market economy and thus will be forced to adopt a planned or even command economy with this applying to all countries where agriculture is a cause of deforestation and also Europe and America etc eventually if aquaponics etc is not adopted within the next decade.This is why government regulations to protect the Amazon rainforest etc is in the best interests of supporters of the free market system especially conservatives in Brazil because its prevent the country needing a command economy why idiots like Bolsanaro are shooting themselves in the foot by cutting environmental regulations that protect the Amazon rainforests.This could also apply to regulations to punish polluters of all ecosystems and those that emit greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and swutch to renewables.It is supporters of the free markets best interests to have strong regulations with regards to environmental protection.This is why anarcho capitalists are fucking idiots and people who are capitalists who want environmental regulations cut are shooting themselves in the foot because these regulations exist to prevent countries South America,Asia and even the god old United States because the more degraded and scarce a resource a resource becomes through mismagemeng and lack of regulation the more likely it is that you’ll have to eventually adopt command ecomies similar to the Soviet Republic and Maoist China the very thing you are against and hate.In otherwards supporters of the free market system who deride environmental regulations as tyrannical “socialism”  are idiots because they are meant to prevent the economy becoming a Soviet style command economy that they deride so much.Regulations put down by the government exist to prevent more government regulations and more government control of the economy.This is why China,Russia etc only began to open there markets to the west by 2000 onwards because they by then gained the ability to feed themselves and thus were able to shift from a command economy to a planned economy.Adopting it before it can do so would lead to hyperinflation,famine and mass starvation etc.Command economies are suited for countries that are net importers of food and are unable to sell agricultural produce on international markets since there is not enough to produce to sell on international markets and are thus a necessity to prevent boom and bust cycles,hyperinflation and skyrocketing food prices.

State Capitalism explained:
China is about to outcompete and in fact about outrank America as the global superpower by using a more efficient form of capitalism namely state capitalism.China like Norway,Singapore is a state capitalist economy.Marxist literature defines state capitalism as a social system combining capitalism with ownership or control by a state making it therefore a variant of capitalism.State capitalism is defined as capitalism in an environment wherein the profit seeking motive of capitalist enterprise is a component part of the state bureaucracy and the receivers of capitalist surplus value are state appointed bureaucrats.State capitalism is simply a variant form of capitalism like libertarianism,free market capitalism and anarcho capitalism where the economy is at a basic form capitalist with the state undertaking economic activity.State capitalism is an economic system in which the state undertakes business and commercial(i.e.for profit) economic activity and where the means of production are nationalised and corporatised as state-owned enterprises(including the processes of capital accumulation centralized management and wage labor).This can involved nationalised sectors of the economy or state owned corporations and state owned business of any type.The definition can also include the state dominance of corporatized government agencies (agencies organized along business-management practices) or of public companies such as publicly listed corporations in which the state has controlling majority shares.It is an economic system with a capitalist base in which the state undertakes business and commercial (i.e. for-profit) economic activity and where the means of production are nationalised and corporatised as state-owned enterprises (including the processes of capital accumulation,centralized management and wage labor).State capitalism is used by various authors in reference to a private capitalist economy controlled by a state, i.e. a private economy with a capitalist base with the existence of private corporations that is subject to economic planning and interventionism by the state.Private enterprises do exist making it a variation of capitalism with a capitalist base but they are under the control of the state.By having the presence of private enterprises as its base model it is therefore a form of capitalism and not socialism or communism with the definition state capitalism referring to the fact that it is a form of capitalism where the state undertakes economic activity and also where the state has control of the economy through planned or command economies.It is the only economic system wherein the state can partake in economic activity and is the only economic system where the state can control the economy or society in any way at all without democratic processes.It partakes in economic activity through the presence of state owned corporations wherein the state sets up and runs corporations that produce goods and services for a profit.It does this because when the state owned corporations sells goods and services and turns a profit and that money is used to fund the treasury which then is used to fund social programmes and infrastructure and increase GDP.Therefore when a state owned corporation exists in a country and the government gains control the economy it is state capitalist economy not a socialist or communist one.Nationalisation can occur in this as well but the prescence of state owned corporations are a defining feature that is if state owned corporations exist then it’s state capitalism or a variant of state capitalism.In order for state owned corporations to function they need competitors in the form of private corporations to pick up the slack and also fund the state owned corporations through state control gateway theory by adding new money to the economy as detailed later on here meaning private enterprises always exist in some form or another or ratio of different forms and levels.Cooperatives are also allowed to exist but workers can only have democratic control for their own individual business and not on taxes,regulations etc on a federal level.Trade unions may also exist only at the behest if the state.Democracratic control of society only exists for workers within the confines of each individual business and not society as a whole.Meaning the state can do whatever it wants,whenever it wants with regards to the economy and laws without democratic authorisation from the public.That is because the state takes the role of the CEO in a corporation who have absolute control of a corporation.State directed capitalism is another more fitting name since it is a variant of capitalism with a capitalist base and the existence of private corporations but the economy and the actions of private corporations are controlled by the state and it also infers that the state has control over the everyday lives of the citizens.It has also been used to describe the controlled economies of the Great Powers during World War I.Alternatively,state capitalism may refer to an economic system where the means of production are privately owned,but the state has considerable control over the allocation of credit and investment.By this definition,a state capitalist country is one where the government controls the economy and essentially acts like a single huge corporation,extracting surplus value from the workforce in order to invest it in further production for profit – in other wards it is a variant of capitalism as the state acts as a giant corporation where all of society is modelled in a corporation and is run predominantly by state owned corporations that hires people,pays wages and gains profits by selling goods and services by seizing control of industries essential to the function of society but in some cases allows for other privately run corporations outside of it to exist in order to act as competitors and unlike communism where there is no state and unlike socialism which implies social ownership.The fact that private enterprises exist in it that run for profit,are modelled on private corporations,private corporations are allowed to exist and society is modelled on a corporate structure means it is in fact a variant of capitalism.The profits are fed directly into the state for further business investments and not social programmes which is the opposite of what is done in nationalisation with the workers paid wages like in real corporations in place of social welfare thus the profit making nature of the state means it is not socialism or communism.State capitalism itself has a society is modelled on the structure of corporations but the key facet of state capitalism that is state owned corporations that comprise of the key defining characteristics of it are themselves modelled on corporations.State capitalism can have different degrees of how much control each sector of the economy is maintained by the state,private sector and cooperatives based on the different geopolitical and economic situations of the country it is present.Ideally private control of certain areas of the economy should be allowed as it allows the private corporations control of sectors it thinks it should to increase productivity and develop areas the state cannot develop.The government structure and role in society itself is modelled on the same top down hierarchical structure as corporations with the most of the time undemocratically installed leader at the top acting similar to a CEO having complete centralised control of the economy and society itself with all cabinet members and members of government following a hierarchical structure downwards similar to board of directors with a small group of wealthy powerful people at the top until you have a large number of workers at the bottom – in otherwards both the government and society at large are modelled in the shape and image of corporations thus the state itself acts like a giant corporation that produces and sells goods and supplies services for a profit and extracts surplus value from the workers it hires.All facets of society including education,infrastructure etc is modelled on the same hierarchical and economic facets,image and interests of corporations both state owned corporations and private corporations and is centrered in their interests.This economic system is the only economic system that exists that involves centralised planning through a command economy or planned economy,in which prices,quotas controlling supply and demand and also what is produced and what quantity,production,trade and indeed all facets in the economy are all regulated by the state again like the undemocratic hierarchical systems of corporations with the state deciding whether or not to allow private businesses to exist and also bailing them out and controlling them them through minimum and extreme amounts of regulations.Command and planned economies exist to control the stability of economic growth with the state able to control how much of the economy is under private control by propping up private corporations and cooperatives and shutting them down.All facets of society and the state since modelled on a corporation are managed like a corporation by the state similar to how a corporation manages its every day to day affairs and business.The state gets to decide regulations and also gets to decide how much control the state sector has in the economy,how much control the private sector has in the economy and in what areas of the economy both of them has control in the economy.This means it is the only economic system that the state decides what businesses are state owned,what businesses are privately owned and decides to take land and business from private control to government control etc.Land,property and business appropriation by the state that is where the government gets to decide what land and business to take control of through force or by buying them through nationalisation or state corporatisation can only occur in state capitalism not communism or socialism.This undemocratic control by the state of society and the economy is similar how a corporations CEO controls all aspects of a corporation and thus it is the only economic system where the state has complete authoritarian control of the economy and society and can engage in economic activity and have state owned and run businesses exist with it also the only economic system where all actions of the state like all forms of capitalism where the actions of the state are not democratically decided they is the state similar to a CEO can do anything it wants to control the economy and all facets of society and the daily lives of citizens with no democratic control from the public and no constitutional safeguards leading the way to authoritarian regimes.Therefore it can be also called state directed capitalism because private corporations exist but they are controlled by the state through regulations and the state deciding when and where private corporations can have control of the economy and is thus a variety of capitalism.The reason why the state especially the head of state has complete control of society and the economy as well as the everyday lives of citizens is because they take the role of CEOs in corporations with the state controlling all facets of society,citizens and the economy similar to how CEOs have complete unrestricted,undemocratic control of all of the day to day actions of their company.The actions in a state capitalist economy is undemocratic and authoritarian because they are modelled in the undemocratic and authoritarian hierarchies of corporations.The state in state capitalism therefore takes the role of a CEO in a corporation who has unlimited,unrestricted and undemocratic power over all facets of society and the economy similar to how a corporations CEO has unrestricted,unlimited and undemocratic power over all facets of a corporation.This is why corporate CEOs like Jeff Bezos,Elizabeth Holmes,Koch Brothers etc are undemocratic dictator assholes on par with Stalin,Lenin,Mao and Hitler and why you have people in corporate America working for people like Bill Gates,Jeff Bezos etc hating their job just like people hated living in Maoist China and Soviet Russia etc.Everyone in a company like authoritarian dictators in state capitalist countries takes orders from the state because like a CEO in a corporation the state has complete unrestricted control of the country.All facets of society and government follows the same departments of corporations.As stated the state takes the place of a CEO who has complete control of everything including the economy and civil liberties of citizens while the board of directors are replaced by the parties administration cabinet members.The members of the party are elected by the state similar to how a CEO decided who is on the board of directors with the state also choosing who to replace them as leader when they retire or are facing death similar to how this is done in corporations where a CEO chooses his successor when he retires etc and in cases where the leader suddenly dies like a corporation the party members like the board of directors elected a new leader.The leader of a state capitalist country is never elected by the people and general populace they are always put in place by the members of the government with them always reaching power through undemocratic illegal coups.Illegal coups which is how state capitalist governments are formed are similar to corporate takeovers where existing governments are removed and replaced and shut down with the board of directors replaced by the various levels of party government officials hierarchies.The country and party leader is never elected through the populace through democracy but rather through the undemocratic means of illegal coups and party government members electing them through votes and the leaders choosing their successor similar to how this is done in corporations with meetings between party members and the leaders in government offices etc similar to board meetings held by CEOs and board of directors in corporate conference rooms.Workers in HR departments that carries out evaluating the performance of employees,compliance with labour law and other departments that keep workers compliant is replaced with government officials that keep an eye on all citizens such as state police.Marketing departments and other market research sectors are replaced by ministries of propaganda and information including corporate and state news outlets that keep citizens in line and spread propaganda to the outside world lying that everything is okay.Posters of the CEO and the products they provide and how great they are and advertisements for products present in streets and corporate headquarters are replaced by propaganda posters of the state leaders and ideology in streets and media etc about how great they are.Advertisements of manufactured products are replaced by propaganda adverts and news of the state.Lack of compliance results not in being fired but being executed or sent to labour camps etc.Bailouts and guarenteed markets are done in order to keep business afloat similar to how corporations give bonuses and perks to keep certain sectors afloat and running and bonuses to reward loyal employees for goods performances.Worker empowerment retreats and meetings and slogans such as their is no “I” team are similar to working together for the common good mantras.There are similar to command economy ie state control of the economy where it gets to decide where the state and private corporations have control in the economy and control all aspects of the economy and society including the livelihoods of everyday citizens is similar to  how a corporation CEOs controls all aspects of its day to day running with the state doing this by controlling the entire economy like how a corporation controls every aspect of its goings on.All actions of the state are carried out by the state without input by the workers meaning the population has no democratic input with regards to taxes,regulations etc.The control of the economy and society by the state through centrally planned economies that is where it gets to decide which sector of the economy is under state or private control and so on with no democratic input is similar to how CEOs manage the everyday machinations of a corporation.The undemocratic nature of the state is similar to undemocratic nature of CEOs in corporations.

Key features of state capitalism include:

State Ownership: In this system, the government may own and operate certain industries or enterprises that are considered strategically important or essential for the nation’s development. These state-owned enterprises (SOEs) might include sectors like energy, telecommunications, transportation, and banking

Government Regulation:
While private businesses are allowed to operate, the government often exerts regulatory control over economic activities to ensure fairness, prevent monopolies, and protect consumer interests.

Resource Allocation:
The government may influence the allocation of resources and investment decisions in the economy to achieve specific economic and social goals. This can involve directing resources toward infrastructure development, education, healthcare, and other public services

Public Welfare:
State capitalism aims to balance market forces with social objectives. Governments may use their influence to pursue goals like reducing income inequality, creating employment opportunities, and improving the overall welfare of the population

Economic Planning:
State capitalism can involve elements of centralized economic planning, where the government plays a role in setting goals, targets, and priorities for economic development.Examples of countries that have been associated with state capitalism at various points in their history include China, Russia (especially during the Soviet era), and some Middle Eastern countries where oil industries are state-controlled. when the state intervenes in the economy in state capitalism and controls all aspects of the economy and has state owned corporations alongside private enterprises as competitors it is state capitalist a variant of capitalism with it controlling the economy like how a corporation controls all aspects of itself since the economy is an extension of the state which is the exact opposite of both socialism and communism which involves the state have no control of the economy and not intervening at all.In state capitalism the state in the form of the leaders has complete unrestricted control of not just the economy but also all of society with zero democratic input from the populace.This is in contrast to decentralisation planning espoused by Marx in the definition of socialism and most socialists especially democratic socialists.Command economies that is where the government has complete control of the economy with no democratic input from the public is the key defining characteristics of state capitalism but more democratic planned economies

All aspects of the economy are run by the state similar to how a corporations CEOs operates it day to day business and affairs.This designation applies regardless of the political aims of the state, even if the state is nominally labelled communist or socialist.All facets like education,news etc are run and managed by the state in the interests of corporations etc.This where the name state capitalism comes from because it is a form of capitalism wherein the state runs society similar to a corporation with a capitalist base where private enterprises can exist.State directed capitalism is thus another name for it.Variations where democratic control exists is similar to trade unions with it in the form of the public able to democratically decide changes in the constitution etc and worker etc regulations on a federal level but overall the state still has control of the majority of society..Put simply in state capitalism the state decides every facet of the economy in an undemocratic manner which is the exact opposite of socialism where its actions are democratically decided.All actions are decided by the state itself with no democratic input by the workforce and population and not like communism where the state doesn’t even exist in the first place.Hence the name state capitalism and why it is a variant of capitalism because the actions of the state are done for profit and all facets of society are modelled on the hierarchical structures of corporations and is within the confines of a capitalist economy where private enterprises are allowed to exist but whose extent of power and existence is determined by the state based on the current geopolitical and economic situations.Think of how corporations are organised and how they operate and then apply this to how the government modelled on a corporation would work.Hence the name state capitalism because the states structure and how it is operated is modelled on that of corporations.This state ownership and nationalisation of natural resources,taxing private enterprises and the presence of private enterprises cannot occur in either socialism and communism only state capitalism.Private enterprises exist in state capitalism and their control of the economy etc is determined by the state.Cooperatives can also exist and again their control of the economy is decided by the state.State capitalist states cannot be considered socialist due to the profit making motive of the state owned corporations absent in socialism,the fact that private corporations can exist,privatisation as well as state owned corporations and nationalisation of the economy can occur and that the state has absolute control of the economy in terms of prices and command economy with the level of control dependent on administration – the exact opposite of decentralised planning and democratic process present in socialism and socialism does not involve private corporations as well as privatisation and nationalisation of the economy and the state intervention in the economy that cannot occur in socialism.Furthermore unlike socialism where all actions of the state are democratically decided in state capitalism it is the state that has control of all actions and control of the economy meaning the state can do whatever it wants whenever it wants with regards to regulations,taxes and even the election of the  almost zero democratic control meaning citizens and workers have no control over the type of regulations and taxes that are passed.It cannot be considered communist due to the presence of money,the state and corporations in the first place and it cannot be called socialist because the lack of democracy and presence of private corporations.Sound familiar?This is exactly what happened in Cambodia under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge,Maoist China and Soviet Russia etc.Many if not most experts and scholars(you know the people most conservatives due to their underdeveloped brains deride as being full of bullshit on all issues including science) such as Noam Chomsky,Richard Wolff and now me agree that the economy of the Soviet Union and of the Eastern Bloc countries modeled after it,Cuba under Castro etc,Cambodia under the Khmer Rogue,Vietnam and also including Maoist China,were state capitalist systems and that the current economy of China,Norway etc also constitutes a form of command/planned economy state capitalism.Modern day Norway,Finland,Sweden,Denmark,North and South Korea and also Vietnam,Cuba,Venezuela,Singapore,Ukraine,United States,Algeria,United Arab Emirates,Brazil,Bolivia,Ecuador,India,modern day China,Taiwan(during its right wing KMT dictatorship period and to a lesser extent today) are the same economic system of state capitalism as Soviet Russia,Maoist China or indeed it’s just that the government is more flexible with regards to private enterprise but still has a large amount of control on prices,trade agreements etc on the same vein as Norway meaning whenever capitalists correct Bernie Sanders for thinking Norway is not democratic socialism but rather a capitalist system with strong government control and point to modern day China,Norway,Singapore etc and even the good ol United States as a capitalist success they too have to be corrected in that it’s the same economic system that killed roughly 55,000,000 plus people through government programmes like the Great Leap Forward and led to the mass human rights abuses,secret police,gulags and genocide in Maoist China,Lenin and Stalin run Soviet Russia and the eastern bloc etc and thus can’t condemn democratic socialists like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez as crazy socialists who want to destroy freedom and can’t praise Taiwan,Singapore,Norway and modern China or even the United States as bastions of freedom when it’s the same economic system that they chastise as having killing millions of people.These countries are considered state capitalist because of the existence of state owned corporations such as in the case Venezuela which has Petróleos de Venezuela(PDSVA) which is a state owned oil and gas corporation. fact that these state owned corporations exist by conservative logic implies that America is therefore communist and socialist.

Other examples of state owned corporations in across the world including Norway,Finland and Sweden are Motivo,Postigroup,Finnerva,LKAB,Teracom,Vattenfall,Petero,Posten Norge,Avinor.Cuba of course has Aero Caribbean,Havana Shipyards,Cuba Petrolo Union.State owned corporations in Venezuela include Alcasa,CANTV,Buena Television,PDSVA.State owned corporations in Saudi Arabia includes Saudi Aramaco etc .Petrobas of Brazil is a state owned corporation amongst others  and how EP Petroecuador is a Ecuadorian state owned oil company again amongst others and how Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales Bolivianos is a Bolivian state owned oil company yet again amongst others.China and India has a large number of state owned industries you can check on Wikipedia most of which are oil companies.Ireland has An post,Coillte,Electricity Supply Board and RTE with in Britain it includes the BBC and Post Office Ltd.The United States of America has several state owned companies such as Export–Import Bank of the United States,Federal Crop Insurance Corporation,Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation,Federal Financing Bank,Federal Prison Industries, Inc,Government National Mortgage Association,Commodity Credit Corporation and many others.Virtually every country around the world  has at least one state owned enterprises that it runs for profit allowing money from these profits into the treasury with some having at least a few dozen showing that state capitalism is global thus proving as both Lenin and Friedrich Ingles prophicised that we are in late stage capitalism as demoted by the world entering a phase of state capitalism.Thus every country around the world including the good old United States of America is the exactly the same economic system that is responsible for at least 100,000,000 deaths therefore by conservative logic therefore the vast majority of countries are socialist or communist including America due to the government gaining control of a sector of the economy.Each countries have state owned corporations in key areas such as oil,gas coal,raw elements and also in broadcasting because the state believes that they are in the best interest have allowed profits benefit the state and then in turn its citizens.They also have private corporate competitors but in some cases the state has a monopoly which is the exact opposite of America where the vast majority of sectors are all privatised with no government opposition including energy and healthcare because you know “freedom” and “socialism”.All of these state owned corporations in key areas such as oil,gas coal,raw elements and also in broadcasting because the state believes that they are in the best interest have allowed profits benefit the state and then in turn its citizens.They also have private corporate computers but in some cases the state has a monopoly which is the exact opposite of America where the vast majority of sectors are privatised.All of these state owned corporations unlike nationalised entities are state owned corporations where the state runs them by providing goods and services for a profit for further investment and in some cases social welfare programmes which can only in capitalism namely state capitalism.Labelling Cuba,Venezuela,Sweden,Norway,Finland,Bolivia etc communist or socialist because the government is doing stuff and owns sectors of society is bullshit kindergarten level crap as it also social welfare programmes which can only in capitalism namely state capitalism.Labelling Cuba,Venezuela,Sweden,Norway,Finland,Bolivia etc communist or socialist because the government is doing stuff and owns sectors of society is bullshit kindergarten level crap as it also  means that you have to call America communist and socialist due the American government owning corporations and sectors of society and you have to accept the fact that America is the same economic system as Castro run Cuba,Chavez/Maduro run Venezuela,Morales rum Bolivia and of course Maoist China,Stalinist/Leninist Russia etc because they two had state run enterprises run for profit meaning America is the same economic system that killed 100,000,000 people.Labelling a country like Venezuela,Cuba,Russia etc communist or socialist is kindergarten level crap because virtually every other country in the world including America has state owned corporations etc meaning by this logic America must be communist or socialist.If American is not socialist or communist but capitalist then Venezuela,Cuba,Soviet Russia etc must not be socialist or communist they must like America be capitalist namely state capitalist.If America is socialist due to the government having control of sectors of society then America would be socialist under the most feverant Republican adminstrations in the White House ie George Bush Jr,Ronald Reagan,Donald Trump when the Republicans party have a majority seating in both houses of Congress.So therefore by this logic America is a socialist or communist country because the government owns state owned industries like Chavez run Venezuela,Morales run Bolivia even if a Republican is in the White House and Republicans have a majority control in the Senate and House of Representitives.This is kindergarten level logic.Wikipedia has extensive lists of state owned corporations for these and many other countries if not all countries around the world that are state capitalist.Virtually every country on the planet has state owned enterprises some of them have more state ownership of the means of production and sectors of the economy than Venezuela and Bolivia and even have their oil,gas,coal etc under the control of state owned enterprises with example China,Norway,Finland,Denmark but no one considers them socialist.Now why is that?The Nordic model including Finland,Denmark and Sweden are state capitalist to lesser degree than Norway as Sweden,Finland and Denmark have state owned capitalist enterprises that are not nationalised as well as the states control of the economy through planned economies that utilise price fixing varying between each country and their history and their experiments in “socialism” in the 1970s etc was not socialism it was a mixed economy market socialism where cooperatives existed and state capitalism with planned command economies involving government owned enterprises,coops and private business and social welfare.The Nordic countries nationalised certain sectors of the economy and had certain sectors under the control of state owned corporations which only occur in state capitalism with the social programmes it had a socialist policy not socialism.In these countries the state had its own state owned enterprises controlled the economy and carry out command and planned economies to prevent boom and bust cycles which is not socialism it is state capitalism.Everytime they are labelled as democratic socialist they are in reality state capitalist.Everytime a capitalist points to Norway,Singapore,China etc as successes of unregulated free market capitalism they are wrong it’s state capitalism where the state took control of the economic growth by doing exactly what Mao,Stalin,Lenin and Chavez as these had planned economies,state owned enterprises and social welfare programmes and more importantly they are praising as their own an ideology which was responsible for most of that 100,000,000 death toll and human rights abuses.Other historical and modern examples include Hungary under Viktor Orbán,Russia under Vladimir Putin,Singapore under Lee Kuan Yew and Turkey under Recep Tayyip Erdoğan,as well as military dictatorships during the Cold War and fascist regimes such as Nazi Germany.Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge government did have a moneyless system with workers paid food rations and did have coops etc but cannot be classed as communist or socialist as it had state intervention in the economy that can only occur in state capitalism.All land was owned by the state with most of not farms being state run farms with others being coops however under certain circumstances some members of coops were allowed their own private plots of land for extra rations of food.Venezuela due to its nationalism of oil,price controls and public entities could itself under Chavez and Maduro be considered quasi state capitalist.Venezuela under a Chavez and Maduro as well as Bolivia under Evo Morales has no control of the economy except price fixing but no command or planned economies as seen by the economic crash.They have citizens have democratic control of the law similar to how trade unions have control of corporations thus making them quasi state capitalist or a more democratic variation with this democratic control of the constitution similar to trade unions.Both South and North Korea could be considered variations of state capitalism to various degrees as they have mixed economies and command and planned economies and state enterprises with the difference in wealth distribution showing what can happen when the state has different levels of control.Cuba with its command  economy and state run enterprise under both Che Guevara and Fidel Castro can be considered state capitalist with the same going for Vietnam both at the time of the Vietnam War but also even today.As stated Maoist China like modern day China was state capitalist alongside Soviet Russia and the Eastern Bloc.The state having control of the economy in any shape or form such as price controls,having control of a single business or enterprise such as farms/factories/healthcare etc through nationalisation or state run enterprises for profit and regulating private enterprises or being the monopoly etc can only occur in capitalism especially including state capitalism not socialism and communism due to to state either not existing or having limited control.Thus Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Venezuela,Cuba,Norway,Sweden  etc were not socialist or communist but rather state capitalism.The fact that a vast majority of the worlds countries are state capitalist proves that the world is predominantly state capitalist.State capitalism can have the state have control of all entreprises in the economy that provide different services and products but must  have private enterprises exist and thus allow competitors to exist in the form of privately run corporations with zero state control in running and operating them but can regulate them.Private enterprises can also exist but the amount of private corporations that exists is controlled by the state.Private enterprises can also exist but the amount of private corporations that exists is controlled by the state.Co-operatives,collectivisation of all forms of similar entities from socialism can exist as well in mixed state capitalist economies.It is very unlikely that the state has an monopoly with it required to have private enterprises as competing enterprises to pick up the slack in developing areas of the economy it cannot.The state has control of the economy through state owned enterprises that are modelled on corporations that gain profit,revenue etc and hire workers that are paid flat wages and run by a state installed CEOs who gains profits much like private corporations CEOs.Theses state owned corporations compete with other and the private sector.The state may have a majority control of the economy or a minority control of the economy and must always always has co-operatives and private enterprises as competitors.Having the state have complete control of the economy is almost impossible because it needs private corporations as competitors to pick up the slack and develop parts of the economy it can’t in cases where due to geopolitical and environmental factors state owned corporations cannot develop the economy it can’t.Having the state have complete monopolised control of the economy is both theoretically impossible but also economic suicide as private enterprises must exist to develop sectors of the economy the state cannot with private enterprises also needed to fund the state owned corporations by creating new money from scratch to buy goods from state owned corporations goods and services as per state control gateway theory..The ratio of private enterprises to state owned enterprises and also cooperatives varies depending on each country and also its current economic,environmental and geopolitical situation at any given time meaning as these change over time then the ratio of state owned enterprises to private enterprises and cooperatives in a country will change overtime.In cases where the state has a majority control of the economy then private sectors are usually left to control areas of the economy to pick up the economy with in these instances command economies installed in order to keep the private sector under control due to geopolitical factors.In cases where the state has a minority control of the economy private sectors have a majority control of the country that does not involve a command economy.Furthermore the degree at which the state interferes in the economy such as price fixing,state ownership and also regulations of private enterprises determines the economic freedom of the average citizen.The state through a command economy can control prices and other facets of the economy thus directing the rate at which cooperatives,private industry and even state owned enterprises can generate profits and thus control the rate of GDP.State control of the economy via nationalisation,command economies and even state owned and operated enterprises such as farms,banks,factories,energy,healthcare can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism and not in communism or socialism.Within capitalism there are sometimes when private enterprises in charge of a sector of the economy is good and sometimes when cooperatives in charge of a sector of the economy is good and sometimes where the state is good at being in charge of a sector of the economy and this can change depending on the country and its current geopolitical and economic  situation.Private enterprises can be beneficial to the economy and increase productivity provided their are strong worker,financial and environmental regulations in the country and strong trade unions and worker regulations and workers are paid well and competitors exist to them in the form of cooperatives and state owned corporations.Likewise state owned corporations can be just as innovative and increase productivity as private corporations depending on who is in charge both of the country as president and the state installed bureaucrat etc and how much people are paid etc with cooperatives also being just as innovative and productive depending on the economic climate and the level of cooperative on within cooperatives.How productive and innovative cooperatives,state owned corporations and private enterprises are depends on the geopolitical factors and who is charge and government influence in the economy.Maoist China,Soviet Russia and all other historical state capitalist countries mislabelled socialist or communist had a combination of coops,collectives,private enterprises and state run corporations and were thus state capitalist and thus were not any form of socialism or communism.Again state capitalism can take varying forms with the degree to which the state has control of the economy determining the level of economic freedom and wealth of the average citizen.With regards to state capitalism it is the government administration in power that determines the economic and civil liberties of the average citizen not the economic system just like capitalism meaning the human rights abuses and genocide in Maoist China and Soviet Russia can be put down to the administrations in charge much like the DNC/RNC are responsible for the war crimes and genocide in the name of capitalism.This still doesn’t mean you can look to Norway as an excuse of state capitalism done right just like you can’t look at any other capitalist country as an excuse of capitalism done right.An authoritarian state capitalist government can heavily regulate private sector businesses and control all aspects of the economy while more liberalised progressive governments can deregulate them and have minimal control of the economy.They were and are state capitalist command economy wherein the state had complete control of capitalist enterprises through command economies,in which prices,production and trade are all regulated by the state.There are various theories and critiques of state capitalism,some of which existed before the October Revolution.The common themes among them identify that the workers do not meaningfully control the means of production as in socialism but it is rather controlled by the state and that capitalist social relations and production for profit still occur within state capitalism,fundamentally retaining the capitalist mode of production making it a variant of capitalism and thus it is not worker control of the economy and thus cannot be classed as socialism with the existence of the state and money means that it cannot be classed as communism.If the state not the workers have control of the economy then it is capitalist not socialist and if the state exists alongside money then it is capitalism not communism.In Socialism:Utopian and Scientific (1880),Friedrich Engels argued that state ownership does not do away with capitalism by itself,but rather would be the final stage of capitalism,consisting of ownership and management of large-scale production and communication by the bourgeois state.He argued that the tools for ending capitalism are found in state capitalism thus again making state capitalism a variant of capitalism.In Imperialism,the Highest Stage of Capitalism (1916),Lenin claimed that World War I had transformed laissez-faire capitalism into the monopolist state capitalism.Thus state capitalism once it becomes inherent in all facets of society via monopolies cannot be reversed into more liberalised or unregulated forms of capitalism such as anarcho capitalism,libertarianism and laissez faire capitalism since it is virtually impossible to democratically split the government from the corporations it helps foster and it is necessary to bring about socialism wherein the economy gradually shifts towards one dominated by cooperatives to eventually to communism wherein the state no longer exists alongside money,private property etc.To paraphrase Vladimir Lenin:”The goal of state capitalism is socialism and the goal of socialism is communism”.The fact that a vast majority of the worlds countries are state capitalist proves the fact that we are in what’s known as late stage capitalism as per Friedrich Engels.The term refers to an environment where the state intervenes in the economy to protect larger monopolistic or oligopolistic businesses from economic threats.As conceived by Lenin in his pamphlet of the same name the theory aims to describe the final historical stage of capitalism,of which he believed the imperialism of that time to be the highest expression.The main Marxist–Leninist thesis is that big business,having achieved a monopoly or cartel position in most markets of importance fuses with the government apparatus.A kind financial oligarchy conglomerate therefore results,whereby government officials aim to provide the social and legal framework within which giant corporations can operate most effectively.This is a close partnership between big business and government, and it is argued that the aim is to integrate labor-unions completely in that partnership. Lenin insists in The State and Revolution (1917) that state monopoly capitalism should not be confused with state socialism as well as socialism and communism altogether.State capitalism has also come to be used (sometimes interchangeably) to describe a system where the state intervenes in the economy to protect and advance the interests of businesses.Noam Chomsky,a libertarian socialist applies the term ‘state capitalism’ to the economy of the United States,where large enterprises that are deemed “too big to fail” receive publicly funded government bailouts that mitigate the firms’ assumption of risk and undermine market laws,and where private production is largely funded by the state at public expense,but private owners reap the profits.Thus should a recession occur and a business loss profits and run the risk of bankruptcy the state through a legal contract and agreement comes to its aid and bails out the business to ensure it stays afloat.This practice is held in contrast with the ideals of both socialism,communism and laissez-faire capitalism.Furthermore it involves the process of guaranteed markets wherein governments have assured contracts with large corporate monopolies or even small and middle sized private enterprises of any type.This is where contracts are made where private enterprises enter agreements with the state to provide goods and services to the state to ensure consistent sales and profits to ensure they stay afloat even during recessions and form a large portion of the countries GDP and economy with this increasing the disposable income of the entrepreneurs and their workers to allow them contribute to the economy usually in an agreement and promise where the private entrepreneur and there workers agree to spend a significant portion of their profits on buying products from state owned enterprises in a mutually beneficial relationship.These are private corporations are those that generate large amounts of profits and thus are key to sustaining the countries GDP with should their be a drop in sales then there will be a recession in the economy so as the result the state will go out of its way to guarantee markets to them thus keeping them afloat with them should a recession cuts into profits due to a a drop in the economy due to factors out of its control such as deregulation in the financial sector ie banks,pandemic or even epidemic as well as natural disasters etc or change in the climate that affects tourism,agriculture etc then these corporations are bailed out using large reserves of taxpayers money or loans from banks.To cater to guaranteed markets the governments must artificially create demand in the economy for these corporations to flourish.In otherwards to keep the guaranteed markets contract open the state must create demand in the economy for the corporations products to be used in thus keeping the corporations afloat at all times by purposefully instigating geopolitical,sociological,economic or environmental problems and situations out of thin air that would otherwards not naturally occur by itself.If there is no demand for the corporations products then the government will go out of its way to create those markets either locally,nationally or internationally by purposefully instigating geopolitical,environmental,environmental and economic events.Other cases may require the corporate entity to exist in order to aid the government solve a problem in society and prevent imbalances in society and the economy with this problem solved by the government providing guarenteed markets to the private entity wherein the corporate entity once set up will solve the problem but at the same time be given consistent sales and profits.The corporations may provide a service that is esssential to the economic,political and societal stability of a country and this they are propped up and efforts done to keep them afloat forever.Allowing these corporations to collapse economically and go bankrupt would cause the countries GDP and economy to nosedive and collapse and even cause societal collapse through widespread poverty and famine thus the state will do everything it can to keep the business afloat through whatever means either legal or illegal.When ever a recession occurs or their sales declines these corporations will be bailed out in a whims notice using large reserves of taxpayers money and also loans created from scratch thus adding to the countries national debt.In return for bailouts and guaranteed markets the corporate entity promises to use a certain amount of profits that are in the hands of the CEOs as income and its workers as wages to buy state produced goods and services from state run industries or even through illegal bribes and other legal and illegal economic deals.These corporations are thus usually propped up,started up and kept afloat by the government itself to provide income to the CEOs its workers,provide resources to the state and solve issues it has and keep the economy afloat forever.The corporations are usually those that become key facets of the economy by contributing millions,billions or even trillions of dollars with if they go bankrupt or suffer losses will effect the national economy negatively thus they need to be given guaranteed markets and bailouts.Having them shut down or go bankrupt is thus economic suicide and even political suicide and would cause the economy and society collapse leading to societal unrest and famine so therefore keeping them afloat is done to ensure stable exponentional economic growth and usually to keep the population of the state loyal and prevent civil unrest.To keep them afloat should recessions occur or they are in danger of going bankrupt for whatever reasons the state aids them through bailouts using public funds to prevent them going bankrupt and stay afloat as if they go bankrupt then the economy will enter a serious recession.Whenever there is a recession these coroporations are the first to be bailed out instantly with large amounts of money from the taxpayer while public entities and the general public are not.Bailouts are also done the instant that the corporation is in danger of going into debt and bankrupt to keep them afloat.Therefore the state has control of the economy without the need of regulation or through a command economy.Furthermore the corporations must have all candidates of all political parties present in the government bought out through lobbyists to ensure that regardless of whose in power and regardless of their political leaning and political party they will always have someone to bail them out and supply them with guaranteed markets.This can be done through lobbyists bribing and corrupting them with the state on behalf enacts or removes regulations and laws that keeps the monopolistic corporations profits stable and consistent with it also have the state enact regulations that keep competitive business out of business including those regulations that stunt the growth of new small business and cause them to go bankrupt and keep the monopolies power as monopolies thus eliminating all competitors with this thus creating giant monopolies.As a result cronyism that is a close knit relationship between monopolistic entities and the state is built into state capitalism alongside corruption thus making it impossible to eliminate the corruption and cronyism with the relationship between them playing a key role in keeping increased rise in the states countries GDP meaning should the corporations go bankrupt or their profits decrease then the country would fall into a severe if not permanent recession or economic stagnation thus keeping these corporations afloat through guaranteed markets and bailouts is in the best interests of keeping the states economic growth stable forever.This is why state capitalism once it is formed it cannot be changed it is always inherently corrupt regardless of whose in power and what political party they belong to you end up with a revolving door of corrupted politicians who despite being on both or all sides of the political spectrum they will be always doing the same thing for the same plolitical donors as if someone else from another political party is present and any attempts from the outside to change the system from other third political parties will be quashed into oblivion or made to fall in line.State capitalism always involves undemocratically installed dictators who’re through illegal means usually an illegal coup or changing the constitution illegally change the law in the constitution to remain there permenantly with the cronyism and close relationships with corporations ensuring that even if a new person is installed as the leader that person is of the same political party guaranteed through nepotism or through even different opposing parties being bought.Mao,Stalin,Lenin and all successive administrations in Soviet Russia were not democratically elected and from the same political party with in the case of Mao his successors also not democratically elected and again from the same political party,the same occurred with Chavez and Maduro in Venezuela(although they were both democratically elected there was nepotism and from the same political party),Cuba,Cambodia etc in all of these cases not only were of the same political party they all had the same economic interests supporting them to keep them in power though with Chavez and Maduro this was to a lesser degree and with regards to America both the corporate democrats and republicans are supported by the same  lobbyists and the same donor corporations Wall Street,big oil,big pharma and the military industrial complex with them elected through the undemocratic electoral college.Chavez and Maduro run Venezuela are less corrupt versions as they were elected democratically and changed to the constitution to allow Chavez to extend to unlimited terms through democratic means hence why Venezuela is considered a quasi state capitalist economy with him having very little in terms of bailouts and guaranteed markets in comparison to the rest.With regards to America having both the Corporate Democrats and Republicans in both houses of Congress and the White House being bought out by the same special interest groups they are both in bed with as stated Wall Street,the fossil fuel companies,pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies and also the military industrial complex ensures that progressives or libertarians never get a majority of the seats in both houses and that a progressive or libertarian or any other political party never sets foot in the White House thus keeping the revolving door opening where there is zero effort to end perpetual warfare in the Middle East etc,that universal healthcare never becomes a reality,anthropogenic climate change is never solved and that whenever the shit hits the fan their donors get large bailouts everytime with everyone else left to pick up the scraps and that corruption,cronyism and all other problems in Washington are never solved or eliminated ever.It is virtually impossible for state capitalism to be reformed into other previous or new subtypes of capitalism and is therefore considered both a symptom and component of late stage capitalism that is eventually to be replaced by other higher economic sumystems such as minarcho technocratism and eventually communism.Democratic socialism or more correctly democratic capitalism,progressive politics,libertarianism and anarcho capitalism will never ever take dominance in American politicians due to the effects of the variant of state capitalism present.In otherwards things will always stay the same.An moree succient definition is that state capitalism involves a close relationship between the government and private capitalism such as one in which the private capitalists produce for a guaranteed market especially one for the state with the state buying manufactured goods and services from specific monopolistic firms.An example of this in the context of the United States is the relationships between Washington,the military industrial complex,pharmaceutical companies,fossil fuel companies wherein the American government has to consistently initiating and maintaining wars in oil rich nation to please the oil companies and pleasing the military industrial complex by buying from them tank,bombs,bombers,guns and all apparel used by the military.This guarantees markets at all times meaning the American  government has constantly to start illegal wars and coups etc to ensure Lockheed Martin,Raytheon etc can make profits by selling them weapons and the fossil fuel companies are ensured profits by being given access to cheap oil,coal and gas reserves in primarily countries rich nations.The pharmaceutical companies are ensured guaranteed markets by eliminating universal healthcare,allowing insurance companies to exist and other means that are gained through lobbyists.Therefore perpetual warfare must exist for the likes of Raytheon,Lockheed Martin and other corporations as part of the military industrial complex to function and exist,environmental degradation and deregulation must exist for Exxon,Shell etc to exist and function and disease and insurance companies must exist for big pharma to stay afloat with the state thus constantly going out of its way to create new markets for each of these corporations.Install world peace,universal healthcare,green energy etc and these companies will go bankrupt thus eliminating billions of not trillions of dollars from the economy.Perpetual warfare,disease and environmental degradation are thus the defining hallmarks of modern day late stage capitalism because without these corporations staying afloat through bailouts and guaranteed markets capitalism cannot function anymore and the American economy would nosedive,tank and possibly go bankrupt and thinking otherwise is delusional nonsense.The American economy and its corporations needs perpetual warfare,environmental degradation and deregulation and disease to function without it it would simply collapse in on itself because the American government has becomes so intertwined with the companies that needs these to function.It is both economically and physically impossible and also economic suicide for you to have magical libertarianism,anarcho capitalism or indeed any type of capitalism where these corporations do not exist and where world peace,immortality and environmental stability can coexist because they are two polar opposites that go against each other in principle.This is cognitive dissonance..If you are a defender of capitalism you are a defender of perpetual warfare,poverty,environmental degradation,suffering,corruption and disease etc and your against world peace,universal healthcare as well as the safety of the planet and that makes you a piece of shit.War,environmental degradation,disease,cronyism and corruption etc is needed to keep these corporations and the economy and thus capitalism itself running and your delusional as hell and you’re a piece of shit  to think it’s a necessary evil.Whats that misquote again – “But – to put it brutally – you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs.Each and every time a major recession occurs either nationally or globally these corporations are the first ones to receive finiacial assistance with their bailouts usually being significantly larger than that of the public.Corruption and cronyism is an inherent facet of both of late stage capitalism and state capitalism.Therefore the state in the form of Congress has control of the economy albeit without regulation and command economies in a variant form of state capitalism.Therefore variations of state capitalism can exist without command economies but where the state still acts like a giant corporation by being intertwined with monopolistic corporate interests where it indirectly extracts surplus value from the workers through employees of the corporations it is intertwined with and it putting profits into further investment and profits through this cronyism.The cronyism and corruption as well as guaranteed markets etc could be a form of command economy wherein the state inadvertently without knowing it does directly control the economy towards an oligarchy and plutocracy in a quasi command economy coupled with versions of price fixing and similar regulations that are built into it thus meaning variations of a command economy does exist to an extant in the United States.By having having guarenteed markets and bailouts with the military industrial complex,fossil fuel companies and big pharma as well as close relationships with Wall Street the state in both Republicans and corporate Democrats created a a quasi command economy where it is able to directly control the fate of the economy even though boom and bust cycles exist  under the illusion of free market unregulated capitalism as the rich are always kept rich and the rest of society are left constantly picking up the leftovers scraps and the cleaning up the  pieces when the shit hits the fan.This system of guaranteed markets,bailouts and cronyism is similar to the guarenteed markets and bailouts of Maoist China and Soviet Russia that were carried out with private farmers,merchants and other private business.Everyone claims that the governments of Maoist China and Soviet Russia were corrupt and yes they were just like America by having close relationships involving guarenteed markets,bailouts etc with private farmers,merchants etc that were required to keep the economy afloat but at least the corruption to a degree helped the average citizen as the private farmers and other private businesses were kept afloat to prevent people dying from famine and descending into poverty as were even the poorest the poorest were lifted out of abject poverty and kept from descending into it by through a constantly rising GDP and also constant increase or at least stabilisation of wages and were protected from famine as most as possible.The censorship of independent progressive and to a degree alt-right voices on the Internet by corporate YouTube,Facebook,corporete live news and newspaper media is no different if not exactly the same as the censorship of opposing views in Maoist China and Soviet Russia alongside Castro run Cuba etc.Teapot calling kettle black anyone?Cronyism and corruption is thus an essential component of capitalism namely state capitalism including variants of state capitalism which itself a component of late stage capitalism and no amount of wishful thinking with the magical and retarded anarcho capitalism and libertarianism cannot change that because once you have state capitalism you cannot go back to any more liberalised deregulated forms of capitalism because the politicians in charge cannot be voted out of office due to them being bought off and being the supplier of guaranteed markets and bailed out of and for monopolistic corporations that are integral to the functioning of the economy.The corporations that are provided guaranteed markets provide billions if not trillions of dollars to the American economy and getting rid of them would cause the American economy to nosedive,tank or plunge it into an eternal recession therefore they are part and parcel of the American and global economy and an anarcho capitalist,libertarian or progressive will never ever set foot in the Oval Office or never have a majority stake in both houses of Congress – your delusional for even thinking this could occur.Perpetual warfare,environmental degradation and deregulation etc are needed to keep the American economy going and it would thus be economic suicide to get rid of any of these.Thus the cronyism and corruption of Washington as seen by the politicians in bed with big oil,big pharma and big pharma alongside the military industrial complex is in fact the sign of late stage capitalism and the fact that we are heading towards fully luxury automated stateless,moneyless communism and not the beggings of a non existent glorious magical age of anarcho capitalism or libertarianism.Regulations that exist in countries such as America that stunt the growth of small emergent businesses is the result of cronyism on part of state capitalism similar to Maoist China,Soviet Russia in order to ensure that a small number of large monopolistic private business that were and are key to the functioning of the economy stay afloat through bailouts and guarenteed markets as they contribute hundreds of billions of dollars to the economy every year with the government doing everything to ensure they stay afloat including putting in regulations that shut down competitors in the form of any new or existing small companies because if they go bankrupt then the American economy also nosedives and tanks as well.Therefore cronyism and corruption is built into the very fabric of capitalism and nothing can ever change that fact.This why a progressive,libertarian or anarcho capitalist will never set foot in the Oval Office or gain a majority of either houses of Congress and why perpetual warfare,environmental degradation and disease are required for capitalism to exist at all.You cannot change the system to any other form of capitalism including democratic socialism it’s pure fantasy you can either have fully luxury automated moneyless communism for all or you have crony state capitalism wherein perpetual warfare,environmental degradation and disease is a constant variable to keep the economy booming and going.Thus everytime the United States government whether it is a Republican or corporate Democratic adminstration in the White House and both houses in Congress engages in economic deals with private sector corporations of any kind and everytime they bail them out during an economic recession they are not free market capitalist or socialist they are state capitalist governments.Furthermore as detailed America has many state owned corporations that it runs for profit and not social welfare such as Federal National Mortage Association,Corporation for Public Broadcasting,Commodity Credit Corporation and many more you can find on Wikipedia similar to Cuba,Bolivia,Venezuela etc and also similar to Maoist China and Soviet Russia with its state run corporations it ran for profit.As a result America is in fact the same economic system as Venezuela,Cuba,Maoist China,Soviet Russia which killed 100,000,000 people.America is a state capitalist country similar to Castro Cuba,Chavez/Maduro Venezuela,Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc and there is no way you can deny that fact.The difference is that America is that the government although adopting a quasi centrally controlled Command economy through regulations etc allows for large sectors of the economy to be privately owned and has its leaders i. Congress abc the White House being elected rather than by the state itself.By all technical definitions the cronyism and corruption on Washington is what goes part in parcel of a state capitalist economy.Crony capitalism is the defining features of state capitalism and state capitalism is the defining end goal of capitalism.Though that doesn’t get any corrupt politicians,lobbyists and CEOs a get out of jail free card by being punished in both Hades and Tarturas for the next few hundred million years since their actions within a framework of capitalism involves environmental destruction and the loss of human life.This system of bailouts and guaranteed markets is exactly what happened in both Maoist China,Soviet Russia and also Venezuela etc and in fact virtually every single so called socialist or communist hellhole.

State owned corporations explained:
State owned corporations are the key defining facet of state capitalism that are state run enterprises that are modelled on the same hierarchical structures as private corporations that are run for profit.The reason they are important and the key defining characteristic is because when people buy goods and services from a state owned corporation the money goes directly into the state treasury that the state owned corporation is linked to in order give the state funds to improve GDP,infrastructure and social welfare.The only way the state can make money to pay for infrastructure and social welfare programmes outside of taxation is through state owned corporations as it allows money to be sent directly to the treasury as seen in Soviet Russia,Maoist China,Cuba,North Korea,Cambodia,Vietnam and Venezuela and most economies of modern day Latin America.State owned corporations do not and cannot exist in socialism or communism because socialism requires all businesses to be cooperatives etc and communism requires the complete abolition of the state completely.Remember socialisation of a business is putting it under public control that is control of the workers and public itself themselves through turned into cooperatives but not the state.The second a country has a state owned corporation it is no longer socialist or communist it is state capitalism.Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Castro run Cuba,Cambodia,Vietnam and Venezuela were and are state capitailst economies because the money taken in by people buying goods and services from state owned corporations were injected into the treasury and used to directly increase GDP and are directly fed into the state treasury so as to allow the money to be used for social welfare and to improve infrastructure.Cooperatives since run by workers and not the state cannot allow profits to be used by the state as the profits are shared equally within the confines of each cooperative.Private enterprises are allowed and are set up by the state as competition to create new money in the economy to then increase the amount of money that eventually ends up in the hands of state owned corporations to increase GDP,money for infrastructure and welfare as per state control gateway theory.They also do not allow for the state to get money from them however they do so through paying taxes.If the state wants to get money from its citizens to increase GDP,pay for social welfare and infrastructure then the only way to do this outside of taxes is through setting up state owned corporations and people buying goods and services from state owned corporations alongside private enterprises which can only both exist in state capitalism and not socialism or communism the reason being as stated money spent on goods and services from state owned corporations will be fed directly into the state treasury where the state can use it spend on infrastructure and social programmes.State owned corporations can sell commodities on international markets as well and the only way for the government to engage in economic activity in the economy or gain control of a sector of the economy with the exception being nationalisation which is also only capable of occuring in state capitalism.Nationalisation however does not allow the state get money as it is paid for by taxes.State owned enterprises can exist in all forms of capitalism namely state capitalism and mixed economies.State owned corporations are the only way for the government to gain money through partaking in economic activity wherein they buy and sell goods and services as every time a person buys something from a state owned corporation that money goes directly into the treasury to increase GDP,wages,social welfare programmes and infrastructure and this can only occur in state capitalism because state owned corporations are the defining feature of state capitalism it cannot be so be done on socialism etc.These state owned corporations can only exist in state capitalism and cannot exist in either communism or socialism.They are the key defining features of state capitalism and the second a country has state owned corporations they are no longer socialist or communist.State owned corporations are the exact opposite of both communism and socialism because they cannot occur in both communism and socialism they can only occur in state capitalism and are the only way the state can gain money from people buying there goods and services and engage in economic activity in any economic system.The state cannot gain money from cooperatives and they cannot get it from private enterprises except through taxes and state control gateway theory.This is how the state was able to build up GDP in Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Venezuela,Cuba etc because like state capitalism which is having society at large modelled on the structure of corporations state owned corporations are enterprises owned by the state that are modelled on private corporations.Thus as a result Maoist China,Soviet Russia were neither socialism or communism as they could only fund the government for GDP to build the infrastructure through state owned corporations that allowed money to be directly put into the treasury and state owned corporations can only exist in state capitalism and not either socialism or communism.This simple fact shuts down any notion they were communist or socialist.They are corporations that run for profit,have all facets of private corporations ie a CEO,board of directors,marketing department,assets,revenue etc but are run by the state for for profit with all expenditures such as wages of employees paid for by profits generated by them similar to private corporations.Thus they are corporations like private corporations that are run by the state with them used to run healthcare and any natural resource such as oil,gas,lithium,aluminium,crops that is high enough in abundance to allow large amounts of money to be fed into the treasury to be used to fund GDP,infrastructure and social welfare when sold on international markets with also able to manufacture and sell manufactured goods like electronics,vehicles etc that private corporations sell and also restaurants,retail outlets.They are therefore the key defining facet of state capitalism and not socialism or communism.Each individual state owned enterprise compete with each other and private corporations as competitors and each one is modelled on the same hierarchies as corporations with CEOs and board of directors of each enterprise replaced with state installed bureaucrats and state run board of directors thus making them state run corporations as well as being run for profit and not coops as seen in socialism as profits are not shared equally but rather like each corporation different individuals are paid different wages based on their role and hourly workload each week and the existence of money and the state means it cannot be classed as communism despite their being communist parties.This is how Maoist China Soviet Russia etc functioned.Each state owned corporation although managed by the state etc they are still competing companies meaning they compete with each other for profits and customers etc by providing different services.The wages for CEOS and employees are generated by each individual state owned corporations profits..Even though the state can seize the profits they can only be given to CEOs and employees of state owned corporations that a person uses. These bureaucrats act like CEOs and are elected by the state or through in corporate board of directors thus their wages and earnings rises and falls due to the success of the corporation like that of private corporation CEOs with them like capitalist CEOs earn a certain percentage of wages,workers earn wages based on how many hours a week they work while the revenue and all monetary assets of the  state owned corporations are stored in corporate reserves,bonds and assets etc or is either fed directly into the treasury of the state for use for social programmes etc.The state installed bureaucrats can be anyone at all the state wishes it to be it can be can a current elected politician playing a dual role of politician and CEO,it can be any random person off the street or it can be businessmen that are former CEOs of other private corporations and also even the corporations former CEO as staled after or during the conversion of a private company through being purchased or once it is set up from scratch.Therefore existing or former private corporate CEOs can be installed as the state installed bureaucrat meaning even Amazon,Facebook,Tesla,Apple,Wall Mart and Exxon can be state owned corporations with the state having limited control and people like Mark Zuckerberg,Jeff Bezos,Elon Musk etc can continue to be their CEOs and make billions of dollars every year and make their own decisions.Thus all of Americas billionaires in charge of Wall Mart,Amazon,Apple could be in charge of state owned corporations and be able to make any decision they want and be just as wealthy as they are now.State owned corporations can provide the same wide variety of goods and services such as smartphones,retail outlets,vehicles,services like Netflix,Amazon.Microsoft etc and can be just as innovative as they need to make profits actions of the state installed buercrat are compliant with the state with some freedom meaning democracy exists with this means that workers and the general population cannot vote to change working conditions etc directly but trade unions may exist.The reason state owned corporations were producing crappy products in Soviet Russia etc was because they were several centuries behind the rest of the world which were just as crappy as those in most modern day third world countries or like those in the Medieval Ages – again because they were starting from scratch.State owned corporations In Maoist China,Soviet Russia were on par with private shops,restaurants in Medieval Europe because they were already several centuries behind the rest of the world.The state owned corporations can also manage private property and private corporations such as mines,forests,factories.hospitals,retail outlets,etc and chains etc for mining ,forestry and healthcare etc.They like private corporations they have shareholders,revenue,net income,assets,stocks and bonds etc and can be traded on national and international stock markets with members of the public able to buy and own shares in them like private corporations with them run for profit. of directors may also exist alongside the state installed beuracrat.They also have marketing departments,human resource managers etc and all parts of private corporations.Each state owned corporations are run for profit with workers paid flat wages using money from profits not taxpayers money and the CEOs are replaced by bureaucrats whose wages rises and falls in the same way as that of a capitalist CEO in charge of a private corporation.Otherwise the wages and salaries of the bureaucrat is a flat high one just like politicians but is usually a high one at least a six figure salary ranging between $100,000 – $1,000,000,000.Otherwise it may be both.They are essentially corporations that abide by the same by laws of capitalism but are owned and operated by the state.State owned corporations are different from and have advantages over nationalisation.Nationalisation is where all wages of government employees and all expenses to run a government run service or sector is paid using taxpayers money thus it requires rises in taxes with them run by politicians and not CEOs.State owned corporations are where the sector is run like private business but managed by the government where profits are used to pay expenses including wages for all workers and business expenses thus eliminating the use of taxpayers expenses meaning the government can lower taxes or divert money used in nationalised sectors to run and manage other sectors of the economy such as new government programmes or pay off national debts.This is why state owned corporations are better than nationalisation of a service or sector as it allows taxes to be lowered or diverted to other sectors of the economy.Unlike nationalised sectors bureaucrats are eliminated as they are run by CEOs and a board of directors may or not exist making them just as cost effective to run as private corporations.The state owned corporation are run for private like private corporations and the profits can be used for variety purposes such as for future investment within its own assists and funds or be used for social programmes or fed into the states treasury depending on what the government wishes to do.Although run by CEOs and board of directors thus giving them autonomy they are subject to what the state wants them to do such as what is done with regards to funds,what to do with regards to wages,new services and acquisitions to be made.They can do what they want outside of the states directions giving them the same autonomy of private corporations and also more autonomy and freedom than nationalised sectors but if the state wants the state owned corporations to do something important with regards to acquisitions then it has to be done.The CEO controls most everyday actions and all major actions of the corporation such as wages of employees and most acquisitions and can create new products and services and expand to to new areas and countries etc but they still must avoid risky and more importantly illegal activities as the state has a vested interests in keeping them afloat and to that they must avoid illegal and risky behaviour with by law unlike private corporations following worker,environmental and financial guidelines and regulations as if they do they will lose customers and profits and cannot be bailed out by taxpayers and this will cause a fall in GDP and the ability to fund social programmes.The states control can include expanding the corporations portfolios and making economic deals with governments across the world and enforcing regulations that the CEO cannot lobby against as well as seizing funds and profits for the states purposes with in exchange the CEO can be given bonuses and garnishes from any leftover money it had in the treasury.The state owned corporations allows the state to carry out large economic deals,acquisitions and infrastructure projects and secure natural resources in other countries.This allows the state to buyout other private companies or carry out economic deals and large economic and infrastructure projects without wasting taxpayers money as the state owned corporations money in its reserves gained from profits is used to carry out these actions.This includes building bridges,roads,railways,buildings and also buyout other private or state owned businesses and secure the rights to resources such as oil,gas etc in other countries that would be too expensive for the taxpayers to foot the bill the state can carry out economic projects it has control over especially big expensive ones without wasting taxpayers money while at the same time the CEOs can carry out certain and many of its own economic deals and projects of its own without state interference that increases the wages of the CEO in charge thus the CEO can create new products and services it wants and expand into new countries and franchise etc and all other legal practices carried out businesses to increase the companies revenue and its own earnings without state control making it just as free as the free market system.The CEO is allowed freedom in most decisions but the most important ones must be overseen,assessed and authorised by the state especially risky ones since the state has financial investments in the financial security of its economic future meaning it cannot authorise deals that would be too risky and thus would cost it money and cause it go out of business therefore it must have some semblance of control over important deals to prevent the state owned corporations going bust because they don’t have the luxury of falling back in taxpayers money either through bailouts or stealing them.If gets too risky it will lose money and go bankrupt and this will cause GDP and money for social programs and infrastructure to fall therefore the state must have some control in risky deals and ventures similar to how a private corporation CEO would not carry out risky decisions because it cannot allow it to go bankrupt and it cannot be bailed out through taxpayers money.Unlike private corporations these state owned corporations cannot be bailed out using taxpayers money and so as a result the state must intervene in certain situations and authorise certain actions and must have most of not all actions undergoe risk assessments where the financial risks are weighted and if too risky must avoided completely to prevent the state going bankrupt as they cannot be bailed out.Only private corporations can be bailed out.If it goes bankrupt by not providing a high quality,affordable service and takes dangerous risks it will go bankrupt and it will dissapear and thus the government will itself go bankrupt.Thus the state has a vested interest in providing a high quality service and be innovative and being financially responsible and efficient and it thus must come up with new goods and services etc but must avoid taking risky decisions and thus have to be regulated and assessed by bureaucrats because if the state owned corporation goes bankrupt then the country itself goes bankrupt.It could be bailed out using money in the treasury using money it had saved up from its profits using excess profits outside of that used in a result regulations to prevent boom and bust cycles and risky decisions must be enacted and abided by alongside wither and environmental regulations set by the state because it has money invested in it must prevent the corporation from carrying out behaviour that would cause it to go bankrupt.This forces the state owned corporation to be more money and resource efficient than private corporations and be more innovative than private corporations because it cannot be bailed out and thus if it goes bankrupt them the the state goes bankrupt.The system installed CEO is allowed the same economic freedom as CEOs in private corporations in free market capitalism and the government will aid in it expanding its markets and portfolio because it has a vested interest in its successes but it won’t bail them out therefore it has to regulate them and have control over risky decisions in order to prevent it and the country going bankrupt.State control is only reduced to regulations that eliminate corruption and authorising any economic projects etc it wants to be done by the state owned corporations and of course authorisation of risky deals.The amount and degree of control the state has can range from 10-50% with the degree and amount of control the CEO has can be between 50-90% .In fact the state may even aid the corporations in expanding to foreign markets,create new products etc and franchise as it is in its best interest in the state owned corporation making more revenue and thus more money it can utilise.The state has a vested interest in ensuring the state owned corporations economic survival and its economic safety because if  the corporation goes bankrupt then it will go bankrupt and as a result it has to be innovative,money and resource efficient and at the same time it cannot be too risky because unlike nationalisation it cannot fall back on taxpayers moneys and taking out huge loans with unlike private corporations it cannot rely on bailouts.If a boom or bust cycle occurs or will survive it while private corporations will go bust.The CEO has freedoms and can come up with new products and services and make certain decisions with regards to finance but the state has to perform risk assessments and authorise some decisions especially risky ones because they can’t be bailed out and the state has a vested interest in the success of it and its success directly affects the economy so it must for the same of the economy oversee them and regulate them to prevent corruption etc…Since the corporations economic portfolios etc and even debt is separate from the national state debt it has to be careful not to increase the corporations debt or else it will have to deal with two completely separate debts etc to cover with this also meaning that if it is innovative and fiscally wise with the corporations money it will be able to use some profits but more importantly the saved taxpayers money can be used to pay off the government official debts such as national debt and indeed even medical debt and education debt.The profit motive encourages them to be resource and money efficient and at the same time encourages them to provide a same high quality service as private corporations and be innovative in all aspects to increase customers and profits.The profit motive exists in state owned corporations and this means that not only do they have to be financially efficient and it also means that they have be innovative just like private corporations to come up with new ideas,services and products to compete with competitors unlike nationalisation.Once these are paid off the state owned corporations can take some extra risks.State owned corporations by having the profit motive and also by having them resource and money efficient like private corporations this eliminates problems of inefficiency,bureaucracy and mismanagement as well as corruption that exists in nationalised systems.In otherwards all the inefficiencies of a government system are weeded out.If they are corrupt then they will just as likely be as corrupt as unregulated private enterprises.The more powerful the corporation becomes especially worldwide the more economic and political power the state has especially in foreign countries without wasting taxpayers money and without using military force.The state can expand its political power and influence into foreign nations without using military forces or carrying out illegal coups as it can financially back desired politicians and presidential candidates through bribes,economic contracts and other legal means without spending a penny on military operations or for that matter costing human lives or even breaking the law or international laws and without firing a single bullet or using a single bomb.If for example a country has large reserves of oil,coal,gas and lithium them rather than carrying out a coup,illegal war or war crimes you make an economic deal with the existing government or potential presidential candidates where you allow your state corporation to set up in that country or allow it to buyout existing state owned or private corporations that exploit that resource allowing you to move in and gain control of that resource through legal means and without wasting human lives and taxpayers money on needless warfare.Funding can come from creating existing state owned corporations that gain money from existing legal contracts etc in your own country or getting money from CEOs or urging CEOs form exiting private companies in charge and them moving the state owned corporations into the country through economic deals.In otherwards you can gain control of a country and its natural resources by buying out existing state owned or private corporations through your own state owned corporations that hold a stronghold on that resources without resorting to an illegal coup,illegal imperialist war,war crimes etc without wasting taxpayers money and any human lives and its perfectly legal by international standards and conventions.You can buy out the existing oil etc companies secretly through a dummy company in the guise of one that isn’t from your native country and just pretend to be of benefit to its citizens then have the money from the oil etc sent your treasury and diverted to the bank accounts of American oil etc companies and then sell off your dummy corporations to your American oil companies and voila you have gained control of a countries natural resources without anyone noticing and not having to waste billions or trillions of dollars on pointless wars,coups etc.Your dummy corporations can also legally buy land where proven reserves are and drill oil their even if a dictator is present you can bribe them or buyout the existing native corporations.If you want CEOs of private corporations to gain the profits they can become the CEO of the state owned corporations and their board of directors also work for them with them all acting the CEOs etc of both.you want to change the politician in charge you can do so legally by instigating democratic elections and by propping up and funding your desired candidate without a coup etc in the next election and prevent democratic reforms to give them unlimited term limits.Dictators can be dealt with instigating grassrots rebellions and coups by citizens and your candidate.Give your candidate and citizens all the weapons,private or government mercenaries they need and you can overthrow a dictator through grassroots democratic movements,coups,subterfuge and infiltration and double agents without sending any of your own soldiers into harms way and without starting wars that destabilise the entire Middle East and to a degree it can be legal with minimal civilian casualties.I can think of a billion ways American fossil fuel companies could have taken control of the reserves of oil Iraq,Afghanistan,Syria,Lydia,Venezuela etc without using any weapons or need to send American troops there etc allowing them to be done in a year,at a fraction of the cost with zero taxpayers money spent and completely legal even by UN standards and conventions.Thus the illegal wars and coups in in Afghanistan,Iraq,Libya,Syria,Bolivia,Venezuela etc could be avoided by purely legal means by having American state owned corporations either buying out directly or secretly oil companies in these countries,bought oil from them cheaply or in the case case of Afghanistan could have made a deal with the Taliban since after the disasterous war their still in control without wasting trillions of taxpayers dollars,sacrificing millions of lives.This creates a balance where the state benefits and the CEO benefits in a mutually beneficial relationship with the state allowed to carry out certain economic deals and enact regulations and the CEO has the freedoms to make as much money as they can potentially becoming multi millionaires and billionaires as the CEOs of the state owned corporations despite having to abide by regulations and being controlled to a degree by the state still functions within the confines and by laws of the free market system ie boom and bust cycles,bankruptcies,the invisible hand of the market etc.Since controlled by the state they cannot bribe politicians and thus are easier to be regulated as the state can introduce or remove any new legislation it wants without being bought out or influenced by the CEOs.This eliminates corruption and cronyism and allows the prices and other practices to be regulated more easily than private corporations thus allowing the state to enact worker,environmental,price regulations with little to no resistence.Since owned and operated for profit by the state they cannot by their very nature and by law buyout politicians thus allowing them to be regulated with little to no resistance and eliminating cronyism and corruption and to a degree bailouts etc.If the CEO does attempt to resort to bribery and push back on regulation the CEO can be replaced by a new one on demand by the state thus giving the state more power over the enforcement of regulations.The profits are kept in the corporations reserves for future investment but the state on demand can have the corporations profits and reserves be fed into government treasuries contributing to GDP directly or it can use it for social welfare programmes.By having the wages and expenditures paid by the corporations it allows money normally paid by the government generated by taxes from the taxpayers to be eliminated or used for other purposes.All wages and business expenditures of state owned corporations are paid using profits generated by the state owned corporations similar to private corporations thus eliminating taxpayers footing the bill.If possible these taxes can be used to pay off the national debt,education debt and other debts in the country thus alleviating problems in the economy.If possible the taxes can be fed into a government treasury where they can build up exponentially overtime to be used for future government programmes especially those to fund social programmes such as those that help those laid off due to pandrmics,recessions etc or things like a Green New Deal,$15 federal minimum wages  and universal basic income.Otherwise taxes can remain and they can be used to increase wages of those working for the state in remaining nationalised sectors,eliminating the need to increase taxpayer expenditure and improving quality in remaining nationalised sectors and increase social welfare programmes with it even used to start new government programmes.Excess profits from the state corporations can be on demand  also be fed into government treasuries in desired amounts in the range of 5-100% for a desired amount of time.In essence the profits generated by them and taxes not used to fund for them can be used by the state for anything it desires and the leftover money from taxes can also be used for any purposes the state desires.Therefore because of this taxes normally used to fund that sector can be eliminated,used to increase government workers wages and fed into a treasury to build up overtime for future social and government programmes and thus is more efficient than nationalisation and its is therefore for an incentive for the state to convert as many nationalised sectors of the economy into state owned corporations and even more of an incentive for the state to buyout private corporations and convert them into state owned corporations.This however does not lead to a state monopolies as competing private enterprises are allowed to exist and in fact encouraged to exist and flourish to encourage competition to keep prices low and give variety,alleviate strains in the government,to ensure that if economic crashes occur then the invisible hand of market will ensure that there is always both private and state owned corporations still existing ensuring that people still have employment.If one or several state owned corporations survive then there still will be goods and services availible provided by private corporations thus increasing successful rebounds in the economy and vice versa.Furthermore private companies must exist to develop areas of the economy the state does not  have power to do so and the private enterprises are needed to create new money in the economy from scratch that will eventually end up in the hands of the state owned corporations that can be used for social programmes and infrastructure as part of state control gateway theory.Thus private enterprises can be allowed to function with or without regulations while state owned corporations are regulated.State owned corporations thus in fact need private companies to exist as competitors thus creating a a competitive environment between both private and state owned corporations wherein the free market system allows for efficient services while still allowing an affordable regulated government option to exist and to ensure exponential economic growth through state control gateway theory.State owned corporations can be just as innovative as private corporations due to the profit motive and the necessary presence of private enterprises.When people complain about the government being inefficient,sloppy,wastes taxpayers money and lacks innovation and stifles competitors in the form of private corporations they are referring to nationalised sectors of the economy not state owned corporations as state owned corporations are better at providing key services than nationalisation such as healthcare,oil,gas etc but not always – sometimes nationalised sectors are more efficient in certain circumstances etc.State owned corporations are the exact opposite of socialism and can only occur in state capitalism and unlike nationalised sectors have to be money and resource efficient because they like private corporations have profits to make and must be resource efficient,innovative etc because the profits they make are fed directly into the state treasury to improve GDP and pay for social welfare if they go bankrupt for being sloppy then they will damage GDP,infrastructure and social welfare with them allowing  for private competitors to exist to make them competitive with them and since they themselves can be regulated while any private competitors themselves that exist can be completely unregulated and be as corrupt as possible still giving consumers a choice of an affordable state option and also private options.The state owned corporations need to be innovative,cost effective and provide a good service and come up with new products to gain new customers and keep customers or else they go out of business and they cannot fall back on taxpayers money they have a vested interest in ensuring they provide a high quality service,are innovative also because they need to stay profitable in order to ensure they can continue to have them increase GDP and money for infrastructure and social programmes if they are not profitable then money in the treasury,GDP and money for infrastructure and social welfare will fall like a stone therefore they must remain profitable and innovative by coming up with new products and cannot become sloppy.They thus can provide a service for customers and payment for employees on par with the private sector.If a state owned sector loses revenue then it will mean the state will lose GDP and money for infrastructure and social welfare programme.This will hamper a politicians chances of being re-elected and would plunge the country into a recession and will not be able to provide social welfare and the cost of everting will skyrocket.Nationalised sectors of the economy because they are not regulated,have no competition in the form of private enterprise  and lack the profit motive always end up sloppy and thus provide a poor service at the expense of taxpayers money.Exceptions of this includes Ireland and other countries with dual systems of a nationalised and private sector.As stated nationalisation can only occur to healthcare,education and not farms,oil,natural resources etc because nationalised sectors are not sold for profits and involves only running a service even though these services such as healthcare and education can be run by state owned corporations so it is the best interests of the state to ensure state owned corporations to be efficient.State owned corporations are when the state controls oil,gas,farms etc because these can be sold on international markets cheaply to provide profit that increase money for social welfare etc with state owned corporations regulated state owned corporations forces the private sector as per the machinations of free market principles improve its services and lower its prices or they go bankrupt as well thus creating an environment of both the private and state sector competing constantly with each other for customers by keeping prices low and even provide different perks etc.It is thus ideal for any sector of the economy that is operated by state owned corporations to have as many private competitors as possible to improve service through the machinations of the free market system.The state owned enterprises in exchange of allowing regulations and on demand sending money and carrying out economic contracts and the state can give excess money to the corporations assets etc and even the bank account of CEOs government donations that are legal bribes that keep the CEO loyal to abiding to regulations set by it and having competitors in the private sector making him richer.Thus CEOs can get as rich as he wants by franchising,expanding markets,creating new products and have as much economic freedom as possible with it given bribes,bailouts and even guaranteed markets to stay afloat and loyal to the state in exchange for allowing the state enact regulations and also allowed acres to its reserves etc and have for set time periods of time profits fed directly into the state treasury for social programmes with the state using taxpayers money or money saved from not using taxpayers to do this.Rather than the corporations bribing politicians,politicians bribe state owned corporations to keep them loyal and in line and prevent them getting corrupt.The degree of freedom of each state owned corporations has is dependent on the administration in charge of the country and not the system itself.These corporations are thus run and operate like private corporations but they are just state owned and operate under the same by laws of capitalism such as making profits and the invisible hand of the market,supply and demand boom and bust cycles etc meaning they are just prone to boom and bust cycles and have to worry about market shares,the state of the economy,still have worry about going bankrupt and competitors such as other state owned corporations of other countries and private corporations worldwide,invisible hand of the market just like private corporations etc.In otherwords they are corporations but are different in the fact that they are owned and operated by the state. Since state run corporations unlike private corporations they would by law have to be regulated and the government would have an incentive to be profitable as if they go out of business the country itself goes out of debt and thus the economy collapses and  so they have a larger incentive than private corporations to be profitable and stay in business and since they are under the control of the government they are they are yes prone to corruption but it’s easier to have them regulated since they are under control of the state.Private corporations if they go bankrupt it’s a blip on the economy except of course if they are monopolies key to the functioning of economy that are thus guaranteed markets.State owned corporations are since managed by the state and since they are directly managed and interlinked with the state they must be regulated and have better incentives to be be profitable and stay afloat as if they go bankrupt them the state loses income and the country goes into a recession.This leads to price fixing and other measures to stabilise the economy through regulations and to a degree a command or even planned economy.Therefore they have to better managed while still abiding by the laws and invisible hand of the free market.Corruption may occur but its usually low level corruption such as money laundering and bribes etc.Each state run enterprises creates different products,provides different services or carries out work in different sectors of the economy with all profits going to the state with the state of there is a monopoly in this sector will be the only sector ie there are no state enterprises competing with each other for the same product or service.State owned enterprises can include state run farms etc that have other state run farms to compete with for profit meaning they may have to compete with other state run enterprises of the same type in the same country.There may be however be private enterprises and cooperatives that may act as competitors for the same service etc but there can be situations where the state has a monopoly in one service,product or sector of the economy and private enterprises and cooperatives have a monopoly in other sectors of the economy.All so called communist or socialist countries were state capitalist because they exhibited the hallmarks state capitalist.This is where the phrase it wasn’t real communism or socialism comes from because they weren’t.

Nationalisation explained:
Nationalisation is a process where sectors of the economy and private businesses are bought by the state through legal means and where expenditures and wages are paid through taxpayers money and can only occur in a capitalist system it cannot occur under socialism.Economists can distinguish between nationalisation and socialisation,with socialoism referring to the process of restructuring the economic framework,organizational structure and institutions of an economy on a socialist basis.By contrast,nationalisation does not necessarily imply social ownership and the restructuring of the economic system.By itself,nationalisation has nothing to do with socialism – historically,states have carried out nationalisation for various different purposes under a wide variety of different political systems and economic systems.Nationalisation is the process of transforming privately-owned assets into public assets by bringing them under the public ownership of a national government or state.This is not public ownership in the same sense of socialism.Nationalisation usually refers to private assets or to assets owned by lower levels of government (such as municipalities) being transferred to the state.Nationalisation may occur with or without compensation to the former owners.Nationalisation is distinguished from property redistribution in that the government retains control of nationalisation property.Nationalisation despite being a facet of capitalism especially state capitalism is different from state owned corporations in they are not run for profit they are funded by taxpayers money including the wages of employees etc.Nationalisation is different from state owned corporations as in state owned corporations they are run for profit whereas nationalisation involves no profit motive as they are paid through taxation and is where a person avails of a service without paying money upfront but pays through taxes that is they do not pay for services upfront at the train and bus station ticket office,hospital etc by taking out their credit card and money in their wallet but rather they pay indirectly through taxes and the workers rather than taking wages out of the till or safe etc at work are paid by having a flat wage wired to their bank account.Nationalisation means the state doesn’t actually make money in the form of profit itself and thus cannot have money directed to the treasury and thus cannot use it to fund GDP,social welfare and infrastructure this meaning it is paid entirely by the taxpayer paying taxes which funds the wages of employees,overhead costs etc and thus to increase wages of employees and desk with rising overhead costs would involve raising taxes to improve productivity and efficiency with lowering taxes causes the service to become inefficient.Nationalisation allows a sector to be run by the state without it covering expenditures and wages allowing the taxpayers to do so as it is services that cannot be traded on international markets and allows it use profits from more profitable endeavours such as natural resources like oil and raw elements that are in such high abundance that the state itself can make a profit selling it on international markets by selling it cheaply occurs with sectors includin oil,raw elements,business,farms etc services like education,healthcare etc can only be nationalised as these are services they provide to the public thus only services like education and healthcare can be nationalised.Nationalisationis therefore is done to run services like healthcare,education,rail networks because there is no profit motive and profits cannot be made and to allow one to avail of the service without taking out their credit card etc despite paid by taxes and cannot contribute to GDP and social welfare etc with it never done for businesses such as retail outlets,oil,gas and raw elements since by its very nature it can’t involve profits being made since it can’t involve things being sold.There farms,crops,oil,gas etc can never be nationalised.State owned corporations are done primarily for goods and services that can be sold in international markets such as oil,crops,raw elements and manufactured goods as these are in such high abundance that they can be sold cheaply on international markets to allow for an increase in GDP and money in the treasury to be used for investment in infrastructure and social welfare.Services like education and healthcare can be run through state owned corporations but it is usually easier to just nationalise them as these cannot be sold on international markets that usually generated higher profits.State owned corporations are best used as a means to fund the state treasury primarily when dealing with a resource that is in high abundance such as raw elements and oil etc enough that the state can sell it on international markets for profit to fund social welfare,GDP and build infrastructure owned corporations are a better way of providing social welfare such as universal basic incomes,Medicaid,food stamps and social welfare etc as the money is not gained through increase in taxes but profits generated by revenue of state owned corporations thus by using profits from state owned corporations to fund social welfare etc it  negates the need for taxing anyone including the wealthy meaning you can fund all types of social welfare and government programmes like a Green New Deal,welfare,universal basic income through having all government services like education,law enforcement,military,healthcare etc run as state owned corporations wherein the government charges people for their services at cost effective prices and the profits are used to pay for wages etc while excess profits are sent to the state treasury and used to fund government programmes.If done effectively it means all government social programmes such as welfare,universal basic income etc can be funded by profits generated by state owned corporations and it can lower taxes on all people of all income brackets down to literally zero that is no one ever has to pay taxes ever again.This can also be more effectively if the government runs state owned corporations that sell manufactured products like vehicles,internet services,clothing,electronics and food products and retail chains etc as well as oil,coal,gas etc alongside private competitors to keep prices affordable via the by laws of economics as these then generate even more profits fed into the treasury to be used to fund government run projects especially if all work is automated.Automation in state owned corporations are a good thing as it eliminates labour costs and allows 100% of the profits to be fed directly into the state treasury thus increasing GDP and money to be spent on social programmes including Medicaid,universal basic income etc providing safety nets to those laid off without taxing anyone.Therefore the most effective means to supply sizeable social welfare programmes and government services normally paid by taxpayers money like Medicaid,universal basic incomes,social welfare etc and maintenance of infrastructure such as roads,bridges etc without spending a single dime of taxpayers money and in fact eliminate taxes on everyone completely forever is by having all government services such as healthcare,education,energy as provided through state owned corporations and have state owned corporations provide goods and services such as natural resources and also provide manufactured goods and services such as electronics,vehicles etc and also electricity,tellocomunications etc and also commodities such as oil,coal,gas and elements such as lithium,copper etc  it can sell these on international markets making a profit that allows them to be fed into the treasury to fund infrastructure and social welfare.This way the state has to be innovative and competitive and not wasteful to ensure there is enough money for social welfare and this in fact encourages them to be innovative and competitive as the more successful they are the more money they generate to thus increase the wages of government employees and increase the size of social welfare etc payments.The benefits of this system is that as profits increase the size of social welfare payments,food stamps,Medicaid etc can rise overtime as the profits increase thus incentivising the state to keep the corporations innovative,efficient and profitable and this still negates the need for hikes in taxes.The use of just only an universal basic income will eliminate all other social welfare programmes and thus it can be funded through state owned corporations that can be sizeable at least $20,000 a year.The amount of the universal basic income will fluctuate based on the amount of money all state owned corporations generate in profit with more successful years will allow it to rise to as high as $100,000 a year again without taxing anyone.The use of state owned corporations using this method can lead to governments using money in the treasury to pay off debts such as medical debt,education debt and national debt without taxpayers money over the course of a decade or more with a certain amount sent to paying off these debts every year.The wages of state employees in state owned corporations as they generate more profit can rise overtime thus increasing employee performance.This was what was done in Maoist China,Soviet Russia and why they were so successful in eliminating poverty from 1917 – 2020.The quickest way to increase GDP and money for social welfare programs without raising taxes and in fact eliminating taxes completely is through state owned corporations as it allows large amounts of money to be injected into the state treasury through the state selling goods and services on national and international markets.This is why state ownership of the means of production was commonplace in Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc  so the profits of state owned enterprises were fed directly into the treasury to pay for social welfare,infrastructure etc and private enterprises were necessary to increase new money into the system.Nationalisation is what Bernie Sanders wants to with healthcare in America through “Medicare for All” which has been done in every other country in the world is not socialism as the entity or sector is state owned but not publicly owned by the public like a collective or coop as in socialism.Therefore government run healthcare in other countries and what Bernie Sanders wants to do is nationalised healthcare not socialised healthcare.Nationalisation and state owned corporations can only occur in capitalism it can never occur in socialism because socialism involves all facets of society run by cooperatives etc and cannot occur in communism because communism involves the abolition of the state completely.The differences are as stated nationalisation is not run for profit but all expenditures and wages are paid by taxpayers while state owned corporations are run for profit as all expenditures and wages are paid by the profits generated by them like corporations.All industries and services in a country could be nationalised completely but that doesn’t make it state socialist or any type of socialism.In fact if all industries,sectors and business are nationalised its likely using a stretch of logic is closer to state capitalism than socialism because they are state owned and the state gains profits from them which are then put directly into social welfare and other government programme therefore using conservative bizarro logic using the concept that nationalisation more than likely leads to state capitalism then Bernie Sanders is not a socialist or democratic socialist he is a capitalists..Nationalisation is the exact opposite of socialism.Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocazio-Cortez are not socialists they are capitalists because they want to nationalise the healthcare industry.Nationalisation is bringing something under state control that is not run for profit not public ownership or control as in socialism with nationalisation only capable of occurring in a capitalist system it cannot ever occur in socialism due to the fact that the state cannot partake in the economy or can’t occur in communism since the state does not exist in communism and nationalisation occurs in every capitalist country worldwide.Socialising a business or sector of the economy in socialism involves having it turned into a cooperative that is owned and operated by its workers with zero government control and cannot be carried out by the government it has to be done by having the workers of a competing cooperative buy them out through legal means.Nationalisation is where the government gains control of an industry or business and is able to control all facets of it with further legal procedures required to convert it into a state owned corporation wherein it can generate profits and be used for further investment and is therefore the exact opposite of socialism and can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism.Turning a entity into a state owned corporation is again not socialism and it’s not nationalisation it can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism.Nationalisation can be even further distinguished from state owned corporations and state capitalism with nationalised sectors of the economy usually referring  to where a sector of society  is operated by the government but not as a business that doesn’t use money as profit but rather as a means of funding the sector in terms of wages of staff such as healthcare and the money fed into the treasury for various uses with these even run at a loss with the nationalised sector usually funded directly by taxes with state owned corporations involve having a sector of the economy converted into a state owned corporation that is run for profit with it funded in the same way as private enterprises not through taxes but through selling a product or service,fed into treasuries or used for future investments.Nationalisation is where the state has complete control of a sector or service and thus can do whatever it wants with zero democratic control or private control and all expenditures such as wages etc are paid through taxpayers money.Nationalisation is where all wages of government employees and all expenses to run a government run service or sector is paid using taxpayers money thus it requires rises in taxes as that sector is controlled directly by the state through politicians therefore the sectors are not run for profit unlike state owned corporations.Nationalised sectors of the economy are run by politicians not state installed bureaucrats especially those relevant to that area ie nationalised healthcare is run by the minister for health and minister for transport runs nationalised trains minister for education runs eduction.Nationalisation since it uses taxes to pay for them is not socialism it’s the exact opposite of socialism as socialism involves bringing something under worker control.Nationalisation is prone to being bloated and corrupt as managers and politicians in charge of them can become overpaid therefore the best way to allow the government run something is through state owned corporations as it is money and resource efficient and allows for private competitors and no taxpayer money is wasted with the government that to provide a service on par with or better with private sectors without corruption.This usually because the wages are determined by the state who can bribe people wheras state owned corporations since the CEOs wages are based on profits of the corporation like private corporations are thus not prone to it with corruption involving the state similar to cronyism and bribes between lobbyists,politicians and CEOs in America.Because taxes are used the wages of staff has to be lowest and not too high with this leading people to become sloppy and inefficient with for there to be an increase in wages to incentives people this means an increase in taxes which is unpopular.This is why you in many countries have weekly budget reports deal with decreasing or increasing  in spending in education or healthcare and why people are always on the lookout for improvements in results from these.Corruption occurred in state capitalist Russia,China,Cuba and Venezuela occurred between politicians etc and crony private corporations not the actual state owned corporations with this occuring just as much or even more in America and other free market societies.The reason why countries sell off government run sectors of the economy to the private sector to save taxpayers money it’s because that sector was originally nationalised because nationalised sectors are always bloated due to being funded by taxpayers.State owned corporations are very rarely sold off to private corporations because they are resource efficient and don’t waste taxpayers this for example occurred in Sweden where the rail systems were originally nationalised and then privatised.Nationalisation can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism and is not socialism remember socialising a sector involves bringing it under control of the workers themselves.State owned corporations are where the state owns it but it is run like a private corporation for profit and has limited control through instalments of a separate individual  that is not a politician to manage it as a CEO manages it and the state can only regulate it or give it direction and gain profits when it desires and all expenditures such as wages etc are paid by the corporations profits not the taxpayer.These state owned corporations are where the sector is run like private business but managed by the government through an intermediary CEO who is not an elected politician but anyone including CEOs of private corporations where profits generated by them are used to pay expenses including wages for all workers and business expenses thus eliminating the use of taxpayers expenses meaning the government can lower taxes or divert money used in nationalised sectors to other sectors of the economy including new government programmes or pay off national debts.Again like nationalisation if all sectors of an economy is turned into state owned corporations then it is not socialism it is state capitalism.This is why state owned corporations are better than nationalisation of a service or sector as it allows taxes to be lowered or diverted to other sectors of the economy.Socialism or socialisation is where a sector of the economy is turned into a worker run cooperative or collective with zero government control.The government gaining control of a sector or industry of the economy such as healthcare and energy and also farms and business of all types is done through either nationalisation or state corporatization which can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism it can never occur in socialism or communism.The state can only ever gain control of a sector of the economy through either nationalisation where taxpayers foot the bill of all wages and expenditures or through state owned corporations where the wages and expenditures are paid by the profits generated by the state owned corporations.This can never happen in socialism or communism it can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism – get that through your thick skulls.If this simple economic fact does not compute then your an fucking idiot.Chavez and Maduro who turned the Venezuelan oil industry into state owned corporations are capitalists not socialists.Government agencies and industry like healthcare and energy etc can be socialised but again it involves turning it into a worker controlled cooperative with nationalisation where it is put under government control is not socialism.This never happened in Venezuela,Bolivia,Brazil or even Sweden and other Scandavian countries and also all other other socialists hellholes such as Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Cambodia,Cuba etc.In these countries the sectors of society were turned into state owned corporations in the case of oil and nationalised in the case of healthcare.Most if not all government run healthcare systems across the world including the NHS are nationalised while government run trains etc are either nationalised or state owned owned corporations with resources like oil,raw elements etc when under control the government are done under state owned corporations.The government can never gain control of any sector of the economy in socialism as all enterprises etc are under the form of cooperatives with it only able to gain control of any enterprises or sectors of the economy to gain profits for direct investment or for social welfare in capitalism especially state capitalism.Thus state control of any industry,business or sector of economy can only take the form of nationalisation or state corporatization turning an entity into a state owned corporation which can only occur in capitalism and cannot occur in socialism which involves the sector,industry to be run as a cooperative that is run by all workers with zero control from the state with it unable to occur in communism because communism requires the the abolition of the state altogether.State ownership and control of the means of production,energy and sectors of economy and social ownership and control of the means of production and sectors of the economy are two completely very different things.State control and ownership of the means of production and sectors of the economy involves having them under state control in the form of nationalisation and state owned corporatisations and this can only occur in capitalist systems namely state capitalism such as Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Castro run Cuba,Venezuela,Brazil,Bolivia,Cambodia and all other so called “socialist” or “communist” hellholes it cannot occur in socialism or communism.Nationalisation and state owned corporations are state control and ownership of the meanship.Social ownership and control of the means of production and sectors of the economy is where it is under social,public control not state control and takes the form of cooperatives and collectives and can occur in primarily all subtypes of socialism and also mixed capitalist economies.Social ownership of the means of production etc involves it being owned by the public itself separate from the state hence the association of socialism being “working together” because it involves members of society not the state owning a business etc and then working together through democratic means.Social ownership can to a degree mean quasi state ownership but this involves through a government planner who unlike state ownership has to be run through democratic processs.If a government official exists or any government influence exists in social control of a factory,hospital or cooperative or indeed any facet of society then that individual must be democratically elected and their actions are democratically decided and run.This person is like an elected politician who is not elected or controlled by the state but rather by society itself.Therefore if any form of social ownership where government influence exists then it is democratically controlled through democratic process to prevent authoritarianism.In a purely socialist system, all production and distribution decisions are made by the collective, directed by a central planner or government body.If the government does have control of any facet of society in any shape or form then it is still democratically controlled that is the workers and society at large through democratic processes elect a government planner and again democratic processes authorise decisions meaning state control in the form of government officials etc and the state itself must be under control of the populace itself with the state and government official bring elected by the populace itself and all of its actions are decided or authorised by democratic process thus keeping any influence the state has under control of the public.This was not present in Maoist a China,Soviet Russia etc.Worker cooperatives, however, are also a form of public socialized production and ownership.All corporations and factories would be shared among the members of society,but individuals and households would still own their own personal effects.Socialism is social ownership through the formation of cooperatives and collectives and not state ownership through nationalisation and state corporations.Thus the only way to have something under social ownership of the means of production through socialism is through having it turned into cooperatives with zero  interference.Socialism requires that all facets of society are social owned and thus turned into cooperatives and the second it has any sector under state control it is no longer socialist it is state capitalism.The second its has any private enterprises it is no longer socialist it is a mixed capitalist economy and the second it had any government interference as in the state running the sector it’s no longer socialist it is state capitalist.Therefore if something is under state ownership it is not socialism it is state capitalist.Therefore Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Venezuelan run Chavez,Sweden,Denmark,Lula run Brazil,Morales run Bolivia,Norway and Castro run Cuba can only be considered state capitalist as they either nartionalised or converted into state run corporations healthcare,oil,aluminium,farms,factories which can only occur in state capitalism and not either communism and socialism as socialism would require turning them into worker run cooperatives etc and communism would require the state to dissapear completely.Any country that had had state run enterprises,industries or sectors of the country under the control of the government were state capitalist systems such as Norway,Sweden,Denmark,Cuba,Brazil,Bolivia,Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc they were not socialism which would have involved said industries,enterprises and sectors of the country turned into worker cooperatives.If you don’t know the basic differences between these type of economic ownership means your fucking idiot and are economically illiterate and cannot claim to be an expert on the subject and thus have no right to be labelling things communist or socialist at all when they are not.You cannot call something communism or socialism when you don’t know basic economics or political theory.Anyone with a basic understanding of economics and political theory knows the difference between public and state ownership because it’s the founding principle of economics and political theory as it determines the type of economic system that one has.State ownership and public ownership of the means of production are just as vastly different from each other as how publicly listed companies are just as vastly different from private companies and just how vastly different nationalised sectors are completely different from state owned corporations as well as how private property and personal property are two completely different things and again how command economies and planned economies are different from each other – again you can look this up also on Wikipedia.Many countries across the world have state owned and nationalised industries and more than what was in Venezuela,Bolivia etc but they are not considered socialist why because they don’t have large reserves of fossil fuels which you know are always in the hands of left wing socialist dictators.If you don’t know basic economic and political theory you’re a fucking idiot and thus can’t be making opinions on communism and socialism because anyone with even the most kindergarten level understanding of economics and politics would know the difference between public ownership and state ownership of the means of production and sectors of the economy.State ownership of the means of production and sectors of the economy can only occur within the confines of capitalist economic system especially stats capitalism – it cannot occur within any forms of socialism or communism.Socialism is where the public itself in the form of the cooperatives with zero state control or interference or control – socialism it’s not state management or ownership of the means of production.The fact that you can’t tell the difference between these two basic facts alongside the difference between private property and personal property etc means that most capitalists,libertarians etc are so ignorant of basic economics and political theory that they only have a basic kindergarten level understanding of how capitalism works and what it actually is with their understanding of socialism and communism being sub kindergarten level.If you think socialism and communism involves state ownership of the means of production etc or that public ownership is the same as state ownership you are frankly an idiot or brainwashed or both and would get laughed out the door of the halls of academia.Either they were turned into state run corporations or nationalised as per the machinations of state capitalism which again is not socialism.

State Capitalism in South & North Korea:
To see the different effects of a command economy and planned economy one may only have to look at Vietnam,North Korea and South Korea.Vietnam before and during the Vietnam War was state capitalist as the economy was a command economy with North and South divided between the extent of state influence in it meaning they were both state capitalist but the state had different degrees of control of the economy leading to be completely centrally planned state capitalist command economies with the state controlling farms and other businesses combined with coops and the other having some state control but more leaning towards planned economy state capitalism with since 1986 reforms making it a planned market socialism which is quasi state capitalist due to the increasing dominance of the private sector despite the fact the state still has control of the economy.North and South Korea are both state capitalism the difference is the type of economic planning they use with North Korea using command economies and South Korea using democratic planned economies with this due to the climates of each country or their availability of arable land.Both North and South Vietnam are and were centrally planned state capitalist countries especially at the time of the Vietnam War with the degree of state control allowing for a different amount of the two countries to be  managed in different degrees by the private capitalists.North Vietnam had at the time of Vietnam War more state control of the economy such as owning farms,business and cooperatives but small instances of private land ownerships and businesses existing making it neither communist or socialist but state capitalist while South Vietnam was also state capitalism but the government didn’t have as much control over the economy with this allowing for more in country trade and entrepreneurship as well as more international trade with the rest of the world as South Vietnam up to,during and after the Vietnam War was engaging in international trade with most of Asia and the rest of the world including America,Canada,Japan,Thailand making it at the time extremely wealthy in comparison to the north.Northern Vietnams government control extended over the South after the Vietnam war when they merged into one country with this power gradually waning during the last few decades.Both North and South Korea are both state capitalist the difference is South Korea utilises planned economies that have more democratic input over command economies in North Korea.This likely due to different factors of both countries such as climate,Vietnam is still state capitalist but the government has less of a grip over the the economy with it planning it in more liberalised ways allowing private enterprises to exist alongside cooperatives.The same applies to North and South Korea both are centrally planned state capitalist economies with state run,privately owned enterprises and cooperatives mainly family run ones with the extent of government determining the extent of economic freedom these private enterprises have with North Korea having tighter government control and South Korea having less government control.North Korea does have private enterprises that are dynastic family owned ones handed down from one generation to the next that are run on the same structure of monarchies of the feudal Japan and Medivel Europe or the Royal family in modern day Britain that is agreements and constitutions in private corporations state that each CEO serves their entire life until death and upon death it is handed down to the eldest daughter or son or members of the same family and not to anyone else with the board of directors consisting of members of the family and have close ties to the government similar to state capitalist America..Thus North Korea through command economies has more poverty and limited ability for people to become wealthy capitalists except for a few family run private corporate conglomerates passed from one generation to the next that are privately held business not state owned ones with South Korea having less governmental control of the economy but does have significant amounts of state owned corporations with planned economies used  and is thus has more economic freedom for all citizens and is considered erroneously as a pure free market economy.This shows the difference in outcome when using planned economies instead of command economies.Both are state capitalism because they both have private enterprises,cooperatives and state run enterprises and also state control of the economy but the difference is is that North Korea has more state control of the economy despite allowing private enterprises to exist with South Korea having cooperatives,private enterprises and state control of economy the difference is that South Korea has democratic input from entrepreneurs and the public.Governments in both countries own state owned corporations and also have close relationships with private enterprises similar to the United States of America.North Korea has a command economy but South Korea a planned economy leadinv to different economic outcomes the reasons may be due to the person in charge of the country but it could also be due to agricultural and climatic factors limiting their agricultural expansion.We can thus see the difference between command economies and planned economies in modern day North and South Korea as planned economies are thus more desiresble from a democratic perspective than command economies.Command economies can work and be more successful in terms of civil liberties and outcome than North Korea etc as the extent of government control is determined more by the adminstrations in power rather than the practice itself it can work and be successful in terms of economic growth and civil liberties depending on the adminstration in control

North Korea shows what a purely authoritarian government brings about when it adopts a command economy.Command and planned economies don’t necessarily lead to authoritarian governments as seen with post Stalin and post Lenin Russia under Khrushchev.North Korea is a authoritarian country because of the people who seized power.The North Korean famine of 1994-1998 was largely the result of floods,droughts and factors outside of the control of the government however the mismanagement of the government exacerbated etc similar to Maoist China but unlike Maoist China.North Korea like China has to adopt command economies due to its lack of arable land.North Korea’s sparse agricultural resources restrict agricultural production.Climate, terrain, and soil conditions are not particularly favorable for farming, with a relatively short cropping season.Only about 17% of the total landmass, or approximately 20,000 km2, is arable, of which 14,000 km2 is well suited for cereal cultivation; the major portion of the country is rugged mountain terrain.The weather varies markedly according to elevation, and lack of precipitation, along with infertile soil, makes land at elevations higher than 400 meters unsuitable for purposes other than grazing.Precipitation is geographically and seasonally irregular, and in most parts of the country as much as half the annual rainfall occurs in the three summer months.This pattern favors the cultivation of paddy rice in warmer regions that are outfitted with irrigation and flood control networks.Rice yields are 5.3 tonnes per hectare, close to international norms.Only about 20% of North Korea’s mountainous terrain is arable land. Much of the land is only frost-free for six months, and only one crop can be grown on it per year.The country has never been self-sufficient in food in its entire history even before the current dynasty was in power and many experts considered it unrealistic to try to be.You could convert all availible arable land in North Korea  into private farms and it still wouldn’t be able to feed itself and would still be a net importer of food and still need command or planned economies.It is because of this that it could possibly never adopt a unregulated capitalist or even planned economy as per agricultural gateway theory.Due to this the country is heavily reliant on imports from primarily China,Russia. etc.As a result of North Korea’s terrain, farming is mainly concentrated among the flatlands of the four western coastal provinces.This allows for a longer growing season, leveled land, substantial rainfall, and well-irrigated soil which permits the high cultivation of crops.These flatlands which are the majority of arable land is situated are continously at threat of drought as well as floods on a consistent basis.Along with the western coastal provinces, fertile land also runs through the eastern seaboard provinces.However, interior provinces such as Chagang and Royanggang are too mountainous, dry, and cold to support farming.The 1994-1998 famine was caused due to not just an inflexible but necessary command economy but also numerous factors such as a series of floods and droughts that damaged crop yields and arable land that exacerbated it but also the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Maoist China that were unable to support it with guarenteed markets and thus a loss of GDP but also a loss of food imports and aid from these countries which were now gone with Russia unable to help due it facing its own economic depression and food shortages caused by deregulation and skyrocketing food prices alongside it turning its back on its allies was also facing its own problems.In the 1980s, the Soviet Union embarked on political and economic reforms.It began to demand that North Korea repay the Soviet Union for all of the past and current aid which it sent to North Korea – amounts which North Korea could not repay.By 1991, the Soviet Union dissolved ending all aid and trade concessions, such as cheap oil and cheap food to its former allies including not just Cuba resulting in the Special period but also North Korea.Without Soviet,Chinese and Cuban aid, the flow of imports to the North Korean agricultural sector ended, and the government proved to be too inflexible to respond.Energy imports fell by 75%.The economy went into a downward spiral, with imports and exports falling in tandem.Without help from these countries, North Korea was unable to respond adequately to the coming famine. All of the deregulation and free market policies of Boris Yeltsin that led to the economic crash of the 1990s Russian economy made it impossible for Russia to send any economic or food aid to North Korea as it was struggling to feed itself due to hyperinflation and mass poverty and bread lines caused by Yeltsins deregulation.Cuba was in a relationship with Russia that they provided each other with oil,doctors,crops etc so once the Russia economy tanked Cuba was negatively affected by the collapse of the Soviet Unions economy and agricultural productivity and thus could not help North Korea with China undergoing its own economic reforms and since it could not feed itself and was receiving no imports of food etc from Cuba and Russia due to Russia turning its back on China and the special period in Cuba it was limited in how much it could give to North Korea.For a time,China filled in  the gap left by the Soviet Union’s collapse and propped up North Korea’s food supply with significant aid.By 1993, China was supplying North Korea with 77 percent of its fuel imports and 68 percent of its food imports.Thus, North Korea replaced its dependence on the Soviet Union with dependence on China.In 1993, China faced its own grain shortfalls due to drought etc and need for hard currency, and it sharply cut aid to North Korea with Russia turning its back on them and Cuba was unable to provide food etc due to it going through the Special Period.All of theses factors including the economic decline and failed policies provided the context for the famine, but the floods of the mid-1990s were the immediate cause.The floods in July and August 1995 were described by experts and record keepers as being “of biblical proportions” by independent observers and were of levels not seen in over 70 years before the state capitalist government came to power.It was a once in a lifetime natural disaster the last time a flood that bad occurred and was recorded was in the 1920s before anyone at the point was alive.They were estimated to affect as much as 30 percent of the country.Had the floods not occurred or were of normal standards then it would have led to food shortages and not famine with the command economy able to control it.The major issues created by the floods were not only the destruction of crop lands and harvests, but also the loss of emergency grain reserves, because many of them were stored underground.According to the United Nations, the floods of 1994 and 1995 destroyed around 1.5 million tons of grain reserves,and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention stated that 1.2 million tons (or 12%) of grain production was lost in the 1995 flood.There were further major floods in 1996 and a drought in 1997.North Korea lost an estimated 85% of its power generation capacity due to flood damage to infrastructure such as hydropower plants, coal mines, and supply and transport facilities.UN officials reported that the power shortage from 1995 to 1997 was not due to a shortage of oil, because only two out of a total of two dozen power stations were dependent on heavy fuel oil for power generation, and these were supplied by KEDO (the Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organisation).About 70% of power generated in the DPRK came from hydropower sources, and the serious winter-spring droughts of 1996 and 1997 (and a breakdown on one of the Yalu River large hydro turbines) created major shortages throughout the country at that time, severely cutting back railway transportation (which was almost entirely dependent on electric power), which in turn resulted in coal supply shortages to the coal-fueled power stations which supplied the remaining 20% of power in the country.Flooded coal mines required electricity to operate pumps, and the shortage of coal worsened the shortage of electricity.Agriculture reliant on electrically-powered irrigation systems, artificial fertilizers and pesticides was hit particularly hard by the economic collapse.Most North Koreans had experienced nutritional deprivation long before the mid-1990s.The country had once been fed with a centrally planned economic system that overproduced food had  long ago reached the limits of its productive capacity, and could not respond effectively to exogenous shocks.This means that a contributing factor was that there was not enough arable land in the country to feed its population and the weather did not favour expanding it any further therefore it was reliant on food imports and still is today.Overpopulation is therefore a contributing factor as to why it cannot sustain itself in terms of agriculture there is just not enough arable land and favourable climatic conditions to allow it to feed itself with a growing population through conventional agriculture.North Korea’s vulnerability to the floods and famine was exacerbated by the failure of the public distribution system.The regime refused to pursue policies that would have allowed food imports and distribution without discrimination to all regions of the country.During the famine, the urban working class of the cities and towns of the eastern provinces of the country was hit particularly hard.The distribution of food reflected basic principles of stratification of the state socialist system.The countries command economy that it had no choice to adopt was not suited to severe droughts and floods of that scale something that had last occurred before North Korea had become state capitalist and had adopted command economies alongside having no support from China and Russia etc.Cuba could not send aid as it was facing the Special Period caused by Yeltsins new policies against its former allies and Russia had turned its back on all of its former allies including North Korea with China unable to send food aid as it was no longer able to export crops to Cuba due to the Special period hampering Cubas ability to import food and also Russia was not receiving imports from China due to it turning its back to China thus hampering its GDP though it could send food to North Korea it could not give it away for free due to the fact that it would have to be food aid sent for free due to the economic shock caused by the floods which devasted agriculture,infrastructure such as roads,electricity etc that needed large amounts of money to be repaired and it could not do that as it would affect Chinas GDP and China could not afford sending away food for free since it was gaining no money from exports to Cuba and Russia with it also undergoing its own market reforms that would affect its ability to send food aid.International economic sanctions from the rest of the world were also a contributing factor.North Korea was reliant on importing food from China,Cuba and Russia than most of the world who were now unable or unwilling to provide it with food aid and so was dependant on that from the rest of the world that had distrust on the government.That is not to say that Kim Jong il and Kim Jong un can get away Scot free had a more benovalent person been in charge or democratic safeguards existed then its likely the famine would not have been so bad and distribution of food would have been better.Furthermore had the weather not been so bad it would had led to less deaths.The combined factors of severe floods and an authoritarian government led to each other’s worst attributes exacerbating each other alongside the geopolitical forces across the world.North Korea had to have a command economy but that doesn’t excuse the actions of Kim Jong il with if someone else in power within a commad economy could have limited the death toll to a fraction of it.He was after all living in a large palace,took most of the food including international aid for himself and was diverting money,energy and resources into nuclear weapons and even the military.All of these factors combined together led to one of the worst famines in recent history and certainly one of the worst in the country’s history.Had the Soviet Union and China still had stable economic growth and had Russia’s economy not been deregulated by Boris Yeltsin then it could have afforded food aid and could have exported more food to North Korea with China’s own problems had not occurred then they too could have exported food.All of these factors is why North Korea has to adopt a command economy because it simply cannot feed itself and exporting for is unlikely to occur and so the country needs command economies and adoptions of a deregulated economy would worsen the food shortages and lead to consistent famine.It cannot like South Korea which has better conditions for increased agricultural productivity adopt a planned economy so the issue is having democratic institutions in place to prevent totalitarianism and ensure the food is distributed properly to the population with the only other solution being Aquaponics,in vitro meat,algae and commodities from bacteria.

South Korea also has the same problem with agriculture only 22% of its land is arable and like North Korea is mostly mountains with it having to adopt either a command or planned economy and unlike North Korea adopted a planned economy and as a result has more economic freedom and more freedom in terms of civil liberties compared to its northern sister country.The natural resources required for agriculture in South Korea are not abundant. Two thirds of the country are mountains and hill.Arable land accounts for 22 percent of the country’s land. It is one of the countries with the least arable land per capita in the world.Korea has a very low self-sufficiency rate for agricultural products, except for rice and potatoes, which are largely self-sufficient, while 85% of other foodstuffs need to be imported. In addition, Korea imports more than 60% of its beef, fish and shellfish, 20% of its fruit, poultry and milk from abroad, and only sugar and eggs are self-sufficient. Since the 1980s, with the restructuring of Korean agriculture, the area of food crops has tended to decrease, while the area of high value-added crops, vegetables and fruits has increased in proportion to the plantation industry. The most important crop in South Korea is rice accounting for about 90 percent of the country’s total grain production and over 40 percent of farm income. Other grain products heavily rely on imports from other countries. Farms range in size from small, family-owned farms to large corporations, but most are small-scale and rely heavily on government support and services in order to survive.It is also because it had more open markets with the rest of the world is less prone to famines due to it importing large amounts of food every year.Both South and North Korea thus show how you can have different economic outcomes if adopting command or planned economies wuth this caused by its propensity for agricultural independence due to geopolitical factors.It’s possible North Korea could not adopt a planned economy and only a command economy and South Korea having better geopolitical factors has allowed it to adopt a planned economy and thus more privatisation.North Koreas geopolitical factors requires it to adopt a command economy and more state control of the economy with some privatisation and South Korea’s geopolitical factors allows it adopt a planned economy with more privatisation and less state control thus showing showing they are both different extremes of state capitalism due to their geopolitical factors.Neither country of they adopted only private farms could become self sufficient with them if they adopted unregulated free market capitalism would suffer from boom and bust cycles and hyperinflation and skyrocketing food prices abc would have cycles of constant famines.If possible South Korea could adopt a command economy and still have a good track record in terms of civil liberties and growth in private sector.North Korea even if the Kim Jong-un dynasty was ousted and you had multiple political parties and Simone with more democratic views etc who installed democratic laws etc thus still would mean it would have to keep its command economy or planned economy.If either country adopted a deregulated free market economy this would led to hyperinflation,boom and bust cycles and mass starvation due to skyrocking food prices.North Koreas Command economy is likely die to  otherwards any adminstration couple with sufficient regulation and oversight by international committees and watchdogs etc such as United Nations and even sufficient internal government regulations and regulartory bodies can result in command economies with exponentially growing GDP for both the state and private sector every year and also limited government control over civil liberties as seen to an extent in post-Stalinist and post-Leninist Soviet Russia.

State Capitalism in Vietnam
Vietnam during the Vietnam war was split into two versions of state capitalism like North and South Korea with North Vietnam being a state dominated state capitalism with South Vietnam being a more private corporation dominated state capitalism with modern day Vietnam still being a state capitalist country under the control of the Vietnamese communist party.Modern day Vietnam under the control of the Communist party with Vietnam has a mixed economy in which there is limited private freedom, but the economy is highly controlled by the state with around 28% of the economy under state control contributing to 30% of the economy with it a socialist market oriented economy with it one of the few countries where poverty has dropped since 70% in 1985 to 4.2% in 2022 due to the economic planning of the communist party of Vietnam.America losing the Vietnam War led to the Communist party of North Vietnam merging the country into one single country under the control of the communist country that has reduced poverty to nearly zero using government programmes and planned economies.

State Capitalism in Castro run Cuba:
Cuba under both Che Guevara and Castro etc had at least 22% of the economy privately run under private corporations by 2006 compared to 8.2% in 1981(although it has shrunk since then)meaning during Castros presidency the amount of private companies and their market share of the economy actually rose by 13.8%.There are still small percentage of the economy run by the private economy roughly near the 1981 level of 8.2% level but its still privately run and it rise during Castro and Guevaras administrations.The sectors run by the state are state run corporations that can only exist in state capitalism not socialism or communism.The country is a net importer of food due to the fact that its main cash crop is sugarcane with most of the crops grown being exported as cash crops to sustain the economy and the countries GDP in regards to agriculture is dependant of exporting cash crops that it has to compete with larger producers such as India,China etc and its main crop sugarcane to produce sugar is not suitable for human diets.Agriculture in Cuba is mostly state run but it does have a significant percentage consisting of private farmers.Furthermore the American government still hasn’t shut down outdated sanctions against importing Cuban crops due to its outdated alliance with Soviet Russia.The private farms that do exist are like Maoist China private farms on leased state land and are by all technical legal definitions private farms.Private farms in Cuba since the times of Castro and Guevera that are by all legal definitions private businesses have always existed in Cuba right from when Che Guevara and Castro were in power to modern times – this can only occur in state capitalism and not in either socialism and communism.Cuba with regards to agriculture is a net importer of food due to sanctions by the United States and the fact that its climate restricts it to growing only a small number of cash crops.There are now private farms in Cuba that produce about 70% of all of the produce in Cuba.This is despite the fact that the state has a majority control of the agricultural sector.The private farms are required to sell 80% of their crop to the state, and can sell the remaining 20%  in markets including international markets.Private farms that are by all technical legal definitions private business wherein people farm crops and sell them for profit exist in modern day Cuba and have always existed in Cuba throughout its entire history including before and during the administrations of both Castro and Guevara.Two years into the implementation of the first agrarian land reforms in Cuba approximately 58.4% of arable land was privately owned, while 41.6% was under government control,which required a second wave of reforms.Both of these reforms were carried out for the purpose of increasing production, diversifying crop production, and eliminating rural poverty.The second agrarian reforms of Cuba were introduced in 1963 to further limit the allowable size of private farms—all property holdings over 67 hectares became nationalised.Thus, these reforms allowed for the state farmlands to dominate the agricultural sector—70% of the arable land was under the state control and the government became the largest employer, while 30% was privately owned.As a result, between 80% and 85% of Cuba’s land was expropriated.Even after the second set of laws  a substantial percent of farms were privately owned consists of roughly 15-20% of them today after 73 years which cannot occur in communism or socialism only state capitalism.Hardly a successful socialist or communist revolution.Therefore since these private farms exist the country is and always has been state capitalist and never have been socialist and communist.As stated its main crops is sugarcane which is not good for sustaining a diet on,rice which it competes with Asia and also the fact that its climate is not conducive to large scale agriculture like China etc with global warming from the 1950s complicating this further as even the slightest change in global carbon dioxide concentrations caused by anthropogenic climate change can alter an already fragile climate such as that of Cuba.Cuba is smack in the middle of the Carribean meaning every year unlike the rest of the world it gets hit by tropical storms and hurricanes every year just before crops are harvested which in one fell swoop can devestate entire yields.Whenever you have a hurricane or tropical storm hitting the US especially Florida those storms always hit Cuba first and are always more devestating to Cuba because they lose energy as they hit land including Cuba so by the time they arrive in Florida meaning by the time they have reached America the have lost most of their power and strength so Cuba always gets the full brunt of hurricanes and suffers more than Florida and as a result they suffer huge losses in terms of crop yields..Harvesting for most crops occurs from late September to early December and hurricanes season occurs usually June through to November before crops are harvested thus meaning all of a years work can be wiped out just before they are meant to be harvested by powerful hurricanes.If Florida experiences any crop losses due to hurricanes the rest of  country can rely on crops grown in  other states to feed the country and cater to GDP growth and of course these farmers can be bailed out.That is why private farmers are needed in Cuba to ensure higher productivity should the state run farms crops be decimated by hurricanes and needs command economies to prevent skyrocketing food prices as a result of these hurricanes.It is also why crops grown in Florida are also grown in other parts of the country so if Florida experiences losses of yields due to a hurricane other states can provide a backup to the rest of the country those losses.California for example grows oranges at the same time as Florida and unlike Florida,California is not affected by hurricanes so if Florida loses orange yields the country can still rely on oranges grown in California.Cuba does not have this luxury as Cuba is much smaller than the United States and when a hurricane hits it the entire country is covered by the hurricane receiving the full brunt of it thus meaning that the entire countries agricultural land is laid bare to the mercy of hurricanes and thus it more likely than America to have complete crop failure and it cannot rely on other parts of the country to import them so it has to import them from other countries and thus has to rely more on private farmers to increase productivity and increase the chances of more crops surviving hurricanes – therefore private farmers have to exist.Most crops grown in Cuba are invasive non native crops not suited to the countries climate and are as stated cash crops that are mainly grown to provide large amounts of GDP to be exported at low prices with them not suited to the climate with the country having very little if any plants that can be reared as edible crops on a commercial scale.The climate consists of only two seasons dry season and wet season.The vast majority of Cuba’s plants are tropical rainforest plants very little if any are edible,produce actual fruits or vegetables and cannot be reared as commercial crops die to being to expensive to rear as commercial crops.Cuba has very few crops unique to it that it can export that no other country can grow and export meaning all the crops it does grow are also grown somewhere else thus it does not have an advantage over other countries it only sells these crops at slightly competitive prices so it can compete with these other countries and cannot compete with them fully because these other countries where the crops are native to have more predictable climates and are much larger than Cuba with more arable land available to grow these crops especially when multiple different crops are grown and exported from multiple different countries at once.As a result of lower yields etc it sometimes had to sell them at a profit and sometimes they are sold at a loss.Furthermore as stated these crops are not suited for its climate and soils and therefore even when private farming is adopted it produces lower yields than the crops native countries meaning it cannot compete on international markets.These crops it relies on for both exports and feeding itself such as citrus fruits,rice,sugarcane,beans etc are from Asia,Central America,South America and even Asia and Europe and North America which do not have hurricanes and are suited to growing in vastly different soils and climates.These countries already have a monopoly with these crops and can sell the at higher amounts than Cuba.Even when private farms are used to increase productivity in Cuba the yields of these crops are always exponentially lower than in other countries that grow them especially their native countries even when grown by private farmers because these crops are not suited to the soils and climates of Cuba.In other countries these crops are also grown by private farmers but they have exponentially higher yields because they have better climates and soils suited to them because the crops originate from and evolved in these exotic countries.So not even private farmers in Cuba whose main purpose is to increase productivity of crops cannot produce enough to compete with other nations or exports due to them always producing lower yields or even feed Cuba itself because the crops are not suited to Cuba’s climate and soil.It would be like farmers in Ireland or England trying to grow bananas and coconuts or American farmers deciding to grow rice or other crops from Asia and other countries it’s just impossible you could get some crops to grow but they would have exponentially lower yields than their native countries because the crops are suited to growing outside their desired range and would be just too much effort for too little yields – agricultural productivity would drop from 40:1 to 4:1 and we would be relying on subsistence farming just like the Middle Ages.The fact that certain crops can only be grown in certain parts of the country is a further indication of this.Some crops have to be grown in certain parts of Cuba and not other parts of the country.In most countries and states the crops they grow are suitable to grow in all parts of the country or all parts of a state etc because all arable land and climate is usually the same or consistent everywhere in all parts of the country or state – this not the case with Cuba.Its climate and soil types are vastly different in each area of it.Most countries tend to grow only crops for exportation that only they have a monopoly on and this thus gives them economic advantage ie crops that no other country can grow and thus exports them to other countries.The same goes for beef to a degree but by and large the purpose of agriculture is to grow crops that are staple crops to you the country growing them and exotic to the countries around the world who want access to them and thus you are able to feed yourself and export large excess amounts of them for a profit to the country GDP.If a country does not have a crop it has a monopoly on that only it can grow and no other country around the world can grow it then it does not have an advantage it can however turn these into cash crops where they are grown in large amounts and sold at slightly cheaper prices to try to undercut competing countries but still has to compete with multiple other countries who can grow that at larger amounts due to larger amounts of arable land and more predictable weather.Countries that export cash crops are only able to do so because other countries feeling sorry for them and their situation decide to import crops from there to prevent that country going bankrupt as part of economic deals and if they can in turn have their commodities sold to that country in return.Other countries import cash crops including those from Cuba purely because it is another country that it can expand their markets to it so it has to import crops from Cuba that it cannot get somewhere else sometimes in larger amounts for a cheaper price only because it wants Cuba to buy its commodites as another market..Its essentially charity markets and also greed and Cuba has to agree to this and had no choice in the matter.Countries only buy cash crops from Cuba it can get cheaper elsewhere because Cuba in return will buy crops etc from that country.The crops that are grown in Cuba are suited only to grow in soils and climates completely different to Cuba namely America,Asia etc not in Cuba and countries only import these from Cuba because Cuba agrees in turn to import their commodites.In reality Cuba has virtually no crop unique to it that it can compete with other countries to gain an advantage- all the crops that are native to it don’t produce enough biomass to be economically viable,are extremely difficult to grow through conventional agriculture are grown and native in other countries.In otherwards there are no crops that it has an advantage over other countries meaning there is no crops unique to it that it can grow that other countries have an advantage of.Part of the reason these crops such as rice,citrus fruits,sugarcane etc are grown there is because they were originally doing so to sell to Soviet Russia and Maoist China to give these countries access to these crops as part of a deal with Cuba by importing them from Cuba and not North,Central and South America thus allowing Soviet Russia and China access to these crops without giving money to American farmers and adding to the American GDP but to add to Cuba’s GDP and money to Cuban farmers thus undercutting American farmers even if they have lower yields as an economic deal amongst the three state capitalist countries with the fall of the Soviet Russia in 1989 and the fall of Maoist China thus led to a huge decline in exports with America then imposing economic sanctions to this making things worse.Cuba was growing these crops in the first place because during the Cold War and the time of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro it had likely made a deal with Soviet Russia to export crops normally grown in America(North,South and Central) to allow Russia access to these without importing them from America thus improving Cuba’s GDP and not that of America despite the fact that these crops are not suited for being grown in Cuba.Soviet Russia etc agreed to it in order to get access to American crops etc without funding American farmers who were their enemies.This would give China and Russia access to American crops without funding American farmers but rather funding Cuban farmers and in return Cuba would import crops etc from China and Russia.All major state capitalist empires of the 20th century made economic deals with each other that would import crops and commodites primarily from each other and not the US and in some cases some of these countries if they wanted to get American crops without funding American farmers  had to grow invasive crops that were native to America but not to them in climates and soils completely unsuited to them so as to allow them and other state capitalism states access to these crops while undercutting American farmers and undercutting the GDP so as to not be funding their enemies at the time the US.Cuba likely grew these crops because Russia and China wanted these crops but didn’t want to import them from America because that would mean they would be funding American farmers – their enemies at the time so the only way to get these crops to Russian and Chinese markets without funding American farmers was to have Cuba grow them due to the country being in the same geographical location and thus having pretty much same climate as North,Central and South America even if they were unable to produce as much as America.Furthermore they wanted to start markets with Europe through Cuba with these crops where Cuba would sell these crops to European markets to undercut and put out of busines American farmers – the best way to strike at your enemy and cripple them without launching a single nuclear missile especially during the Cold War where the threat of mutual annihilation through nuclear weapons are involved is through affecting their agriculture sector and the best way to do that is to produce the same crops as them and sell them at cheaper prices to their international markets thus putting their farmers out of business,undercutting them and negatively affecting their GDP.Thats what Stalin and Mao aimed at doing by making an alliance with Castro and Guevera and other state capitalism countries by having them grow predominantly American crops.By having Cuba grow and sell American crops to both them and Europe etc they could cripple the American agricultural industry and thus weaken the entire country economically pushing America into deep recessions,hyperinflation possibly even starvation caused by skyrockiting food prices while at the same time command economies utilised by Cuba,Russia and China etc would ensure their GDP would soar exponentially forever making them economic superpowers.It could allow them to win the war without risking mutually assured destruction through nuclear weapons and allow that button used for nuclear bombs never to be never be pressed.This method of agricultural warfare is the best way to cripple an enemy countries economy and cause mass starvation in that country or drive them to surrender and win a war without ever launching a single nuclear bomb,or dropping a single bomb into an enemy base or civilian settlements because you can cripple their economy to point that they never recover and will be begging to be given food and surrender or face starvation.This was why Mao was so hesitant in making deals with America during the Nixon administration because he had to make economic deals especially agricultural ones with the very people he was carrying out economic warfare with through agricultural warfare.Cuba to ensure high productivity,high exports and a stable GDP due to crops unsuited to its climate and soil etc had no choice but to adopt both command economies and private farmers to ensure consistently high yields and sales to Russia and China and Europe.They did however underestimate just how unsuitable Cuba is for agriculture and how unsuitable it is for growing exotic crops from the US die to the completely different climate and soils.It is important to notes that the percentage of private farms to state farms was almost consistent across all three countries.With the fall of the Soviet Russia and Maoist China this led to a dramatic decline in Cuba’s food exports and GDP alongside food sanctions from America made things worse.It continues to grow and sell them because it can’t grow anything else and because other countries are using it as another market for cash crops and expanding their markets.Cuba therefore has had to export to other countries crops that other countries have a monopoly on and thus cannot be an agricultural powerhouse.This is how its always been in Cuba even before Che Guevara and Castro had their little revolution.In otherwards Cuba just in no way can support itself with intensive agriculture even if it adopted only private farms.All of the odds are stacked against it supporting large populations and being an agricultural powerhouse – how it’s able to grow anything is frankly a miracle it thus has to be a net importer of food and adopt command economies and private farmers.If it adopted complete private agriculture with no state intervention it still wouldn’t be able to feed itself and still wouldn’t be a major exporter because as stated it would have to compete with so many countries and also it would still be producing exponentionally much lower yields than other competitor countries due to its climate and soils.Therefore it has to rely on food imports,private farmers and of course command economies.You could convert all availible arable land in Cuba into private farms and it still wouldn’t be able to feed itself and would still be a net importer of food.Other sectors of the economy can be privatized but they have become state owned corporations over the year.At most 22-40% of the country could be privatized like China but then anything more than that would result in boom and bust cycles and hyperinflation thus leading to skyrocking food prices and thus famines.Even if private companies were set up in Cuba that made electronics etc they still would be poor in comparison due to it relying on food imports.They have to rely on large monopolistic corporations that produce electronics much like most of Europe.Even of the government allowed for large tech firms to form in Cuba their status as a net importer of food would compete with their need to provide manufacturing labourers and also import raw materials.Cuba unlike China can’t provide cheap manufacturing labour force because China already does that and cannot outcompete it in manufacturing or agriculture so it relies primarily on tourism.China due to its tech boom,disregard for human rights with regards to labour laws and thus willing to look the other way while big tech companies were willing to treat their employees in factories like crap and larger population was able to outcompete Cuba for manufacturing with its large landmass and it less likely to suffer hurricanes has made it a hotspot for giant multinationals to move in.There is simply not enough to give Cuba the edge in manufacturing,agriculture and other sectors of the economy it relies primarily on entertainment and tourism even if a capitalist was in charge.Therefore even if Cuba adopted a fully laize faire economy it would still have not much going for it asides for tourism,entertainment,finance and banking and agriculture as well as retail but it can be now where as big as most capitalists want it to be due to the need to adopt a command economy and it being a net importer of food.China and most of Asia seized the cheap labour deal for multinationals before Cuba had a chance and the fact remains that Asia just has a higher population who are willing to work in these factories and the government is willing to lower costs so low. and look the other way why they exploited as slaves..Cuban thus can only rely on tourism and agriculture and also be the drop off point for illegal drug deals.If modern day Cuba like modern day China and Russia adopted a deregulated economy it would lead to hyperinflation and boom and bust cycles and consistent famines due to its inability to be self sufficient and skyrocketing food prices.The fact that it cannot sustain itself through agriculture even private agriculture means it cannot be a rich country that could feed itself.Perhaps if it adopted aquaponics and vertical farms then maybe it would be able to sustain itself and become a net exporter of crops and possibly undercut other countries and thus be able to expand into other fields all funded by the state.This is why political and economic embargoes from America affects the ability of Cuba to feed itself and leads to increased food shortages with the Special period of the 1990s caused by Russia under Yeltsin shutting down exports of food and oil to Cuba leading to massive food shortages.The collapse of the Venezuelan economy again caused by deregulation and runaway capitalism like Russia has also affected its food imports as although Venezuela did provide cheap oil,food and doctors to Cuba from 2000-2013 under Chavez but due to the collapse of the Venezuelan economy due to runaway capitalism Venezuela can no longer export food and thus Cuba can no longer import cheap food and oil from anywhere and this combined with the fact that it has very little arable land and has no unique crops to export it thus cannot do anything to support itself to buy food elsewhere with the economic blockade by the Trump administration making things even worse.The main countries Cuba imports food from are its former allies Russia and China both of which cannot export that much to it because they themselves are net importers of food and also export large amounts to America and Europe whose populations have high demands for crops from Russia and China like rice,wheat,beef due to their higher populations and taste for exotic crops therefore it has to be reliant on importing food from predominantly large exporters like America and if America puts on trade embargoes like Trump did then it will face serious food shortages.It is for these reasons that Cuba must adopt a command economy – it cannot adopt unregulated free market economics and even if it allowed privatisation of all other sectors of the economy such as nightclubs,bars,restaurants,retail outlets including food retailers and banks etc it would still be a net importer of food and have the same food shortages.It is also for this reason that reason that Russia and China must adopt planned economies and cannot adopt deregulated capitalism because if their economies tank like Venezuela then they will not be able to export food to Cuba.All of the food shortages in Cuba has nothing to do with communism or socialism – you could convert all the land in Cuba into private farms and it still would be unable to feed itself due to the size of its population and amount of arable land and its climate with runaway capitalism and blockades by America making things even worse.With regards to Castro and Fidel being mass murderers it well documented by most experts that the death toll of either of them is at least only several hundred people and its generally accepted by most experts and academics that the people who were executed by them were rapists,murderers,war criminals etc that were under the control of the American backed Fulgencio Batista  government.Batistas government which was a right wing capitalist government was responsible for the execution of thousands Cubans all of them civilians that opposed the Batista government and turned Cuba into a playground for wealthy foreigners while the entire population was left in poverty with him stealing money from the middle class and poor and driving the rest of the country into the ground and on the way leaning many to live in slums and shanty towns and homeless.Batistas government was also extremely corrupt,heavily involved in censorship of the media etc and opposing views and drove the country into mass poverty and was backed by the United Staes government.Like post Soviet Russia Batista ensured existing wealthy elites secured the wealth of the lower classes and poor and then seized their properties and shipped off to slums and shanty towns,demolished the old homes and built luxury villas and hotels for the wealthy people in Cuba etc.On October 6, 1960, Senator John F.Kennedy in the midst of his campaign for the U.S. presidency,decried Batista’s relationship with the U.S. government and criticized the Eisenhower administration for supporting him.- Fulgencio Batista murdered thousands of Cubans in seven years … and he turned Democratic Cuba into a complete police state – destroying every individual liberty.Yet our aid to his regime,and the ineptness of our policies, enabled Batista to invoke the name of the United States in support of his reign of terror.Administration spokesmen publicly praised Batista—hailed him as a staunch ally and a good friend—at a time when Batista was murdering thousands, destroying the last vestiges of freedom, and stealing hundreds of millions of dollars from the Cuban people, and we failed to press for free elections. on October 24, 1963.Batista murdered thousands  civillians,Che etc killed primarily only murders,war criminals,torturers etc after they were given a fair trial in the first place.In otherwards they killed the assholes as part of Batistas government who kinda deserved being executed who in any other country in modern times would have been given the death penalty which was why you had hundreds of thousands of Cubans were jumping up and down for joy as they were publicly executed.It’s estimated that Che killed about 500 people,Castro about 9,240 people with Batista killing 20,000 people meaning Batista killed more than Castro and Che combined.This doesn’t negate the fact that Che and Castro were themselves especially Castro we’re authoritarian assholes .It shows that capitalism and state capitalism under a left or right wing dictators can produce the same results.It not nether whether a country is “socialist” or “communist” or capitalist that creates actual freedom it’s about who is charge and what democratic safeguards are put in place.Batista like Castro etc was propped up through an illegal coup this time by the America government just like how the Cuban Revolution was an illegal coup and under a capitalist conservative government created mass genocide and an authoritarian police state.Teapot calling kettle black.This information can be found on the Wikipedia page for the country of Cuba itself.So under both Castro and Geuvara private control of the economy actually rose which is not socialist or communist but state capitalist.Having the private sector rise in Cuba  by 13.8% over twenty five years and having a third of all farms being privately owned under a Cuban dictator is hardly the signs of a successful socialist and communist dictatorship or revolution.Despite the best efforts at nationalisation and bringing industries such as oil,agriculture etc under state control private enterprises and private control of the economy actually rose underneath both Guevara and Castro.Hardly a sucessful communist and socialist revolution.The fact that private control of the economy actually grew under both Castro and Guevara  proves that Cuba were thus neither communist or socialist with the fact that private enterprises still exist in Cuba after 73 years of control under the Castro dynasty.The existence of private enterprises after 73 years proves that it is neither communist or socialist.If Castro and Che Guevara did carry out an actual communist/socialist revolution then it was an absolute failure in every sense of the word due to these statistics because they did not reduce private control of the economy and in fact private control actually increased under them especially with regards to farms and agriculture which is the exact opposite of communism or socialism both the bullshit and real definition –  the same goes for Stalin,Lenin and Mao etc.Maduro/Chavez,Mao,Lenin,Stalin,Castro were thus failed revolutionaries by conservative standards.How can a country be considered socialist or communist when the amount of private enterprises and private control of the economy actually increased substantially to the point that it consists of nearly a third of the economy in the case of Cuba during the presidency of so called communist and socialist dictators?Having the amount of private enterprises rise by this much or indeed by any bit at all is not how socialism or communism works – this is how state capitalism works etc .State farms etc were state owned corporations that sold goods and services for a profit to fund infrastructure,social programmes and increase GDP.State owned corporations like the ones that existed in Cuba can only exist in state capitalism..State owned corporations existed in Cuba  because due to the profit nature of state owned corporations the money generated by profits was fed directly into the states treasury to be used for GDP,investing in infrastructure and social welfare which cannot occur in comunism and socialism.Therefore Castro run Cuba were in fact state capitalist societies.The evidence that Cuba was communist or socialist does not exist its pure fantasy.The evidence that it was state capitalist does exist therefore it was state capitalist



State Capitalism in Venezuela:
Modern examples of state capitalist economies include Norway,Sweden,Finland,Bolivia,Brazil.Prime examples of other modern state capitalist societies include both Castro run Cuba and Venezuela under the guidance of Hugo Chavez and Nicolas a Maduro.Venezuela under both Chavez and Maduro had 65-71% of the economy managed by private corporations such as El Universal,Bolívar TV,Empresas Polar.The CEOs of these Venezuelan enterprises are multi millionaires and billionaires which is exact opposite of what is a conservatives view of socialism.In a capitalist bullshit definition view of socialism and communism the state has complete control of the economy,everyone is dirt poor and no one is allowed to be a millionaire or billionaire yet these three companies and many others prove otherwise.If socialism requires the complete abolition of private enterprises then how can these multi billion dollar companies exist.The amount of private control of the economy increased from roughly 65% to 71% from 1999-2011 during the entire presidency of Chavez who died in 2013.In  fact many foreign corporations including good ol American Wall Mart,McDonalds,Colgate,Chrysler,Johnson and Jonhson and Fiat alongside at least 150 other multinationals have a strong presence in Venezuela including Caracas.How can a country be considered socialist when American corporations exist in the  first place.Are WallMart,Chrysler,Fiat,McDonalds  and Johnson & Johnson now socialist?.Like Soviet Russia the farms were put under state control but unlike Lenin,Mao and Stalin he outlawed private farmers which is why productivity fell and why you had food shortages and a large amount of food being imported.These were state run farms not publicly owned farms.Any business etc that were seized by both Chavez and Maduro were turned into state owned corporations or nationalised not socialised.The amount of private control of the economy in Venezuela actually increased under Chavez and Maduro.Venezuela is a prime example where an ineffective planned or command economies were not substantial enough to prevent economic collapse.Chavez introduced price fixing measures that were in reality not enough as seen in the dramatic decrease in oil prices thus leading to total economic collapse.Had he enforced more effective controls then the economic collapse in Venezuala would not be so severe.Economic collapses,hyperinflation etc as seen in Venezuela or indeed anywhere else can only occur due to lack of command economies and lack of government regulations – yes the economy was mismanaged through over lending,overspending,investing too much in oil and Dutch diseases but the reality was it was because of lack government control.Government control of the economy and government mismanagement of the economy are two completely different things.Government mismanagement is when the government handles funds etc incorrectly.Meanwhile government control is when the government has a majority control of the economy through a majority stake in in all corporations and regulations – this was not present in Venezuela under Chavez and a Maduro.If they had government control of the economy through a command or planned economy and government the government having a majority of the economy and regulations this would have prevented the economic crash even with his overspending.Had Chavez and Moralas been proper socialist dictators that Fox News etc likes to paint them as they would have gained even more control of the economy and actually imposed actual government regulations and command economies like actual “socialist dictators” then the price drop in oil prices would not have occurred or not have impacted the country so much.The hyperinflation,economic crash etc since the economic crash after the death of Chavez was due primarily due to a lack of government regulation and a lack of government control of the economy and this can only occur in unregulated free market capitalism and not socialism either the real or bullshit definition.Command or even planned economies and government regulations did not exist because you had a massive recession and hyperinflation.If a command of planned economy or government regulation did exist then there would have been no economic crash during the 2010s – because the whole purpose of command and planed economies and government regulations that is where the government steps in and interferes in the economy by controlling it is to prevent hyperinflation,economic crashes and boom and bust cycles in the first place.Like countries who are unable to become self sufficient in agriculture due to climate and limited arable land – a country that becomes dependant on a single resource for exports say like oil etc and doesn’t diversify leaving it prone to economic crashes once the price of that commodity drops and leaves it prone to Dutch disease etc needs a command economy and strong government regulation to ensure the growth is sustainable, exponential and continues forever.It also exponentially lessens the intensity of any economic shocks caused by sudden drops in the price of the exploited commodity.Thus even in this case of over reliance on a single resource used for exports government regulations and command as well as planned economies may not prevent a recession at all but they can lessen its intensity exponentially meaning the road to economic recovery may take only a few weeks or few months rather than years or decades meaning it will be solved before the recession affects society in anyway possible and the government can be more able to control the economy.Had government regulations and command economies been put in place like actual “socialist dictators” then the economic crash would not have happened at all and  if it did happen then it would have been exponentially less severe and ended within a few months.Furthermore the majority of  the Venezuelan economy was and still is under control of the private sector and rose from nearly 65%-71% during his administration.Thats right the amount of control the private sector had on the economy of Venezuela actually grew by 5% during the adminstrations of both Chavez and Maduro during 2000-2020 gaining majority control of the economy.Two thirds of the Venezuelan economy is under the control of private corporations and the state control did not increase under Chavez and Maduro in fact state control of the economy actually decreased under Chavez and Maduro.The state only bought the oil and alnuminium.There are many countries across Europe with more state control through nationalisation and state run corporations than Venezuela and they are considered by America etc as capitalist countries.If Chavez and Maduro did carry out a socialist revolution then it was an absolute failure in every sense of the word evidence by an economic crash caused by the lack of command economies,lack or government regulation and the private sector gaining a majority control of the economy during his administration.How can a country be considered socialist when the amount of private enterprises actually increases under a socialist dictators regime and their exists no government regulation or control of the economy  to prevent economic crashes?If private enterprises were allowed to run even more freer and the government did not carry out social welfare programmes,overspending etc and private enter were allowed to do everything they wanted then the economic crash still would have happened and would have been just as severe.Venezuela is not a socialist country – its capitalist country as two thirds of the workforce works for private enterprise and the private sector  has a strong base controlling two thirds of the economy – its a capitalist country with a government trying to enact social welfare polices that exist in other non socialist countries and can only occur in capitalism with the oil industry nationalised and under Chavz they had a pretty good success in wiping out poverty the same like the Nordic countries libertarians espouse.Most European and Asian countries as stated have more governmental control,social programmes and government industries than Venezuela and are still considered capitalist.Venezuela has a strong social welfare programme which is not socialist it happens in virtually every other country in the world with it only capable of occurring in capitalism including state capitalism.The only way to carry out the major reduction seen in poverty in Chavez run Venezuela,Lula run Brazil and Morales run Bolivia a country has to have three things – have at least 50-90% of the economy run by the private sector,have the private sector taxed heavily,have them consist of a majority control of the economy and buy goods and services from the government sector as per state control gateway theory and have key commodities and natural resources such as oil,lithium,gas,alnuminium owned by state owned corporations that are in high enough abundance to be sold on national and international markets with them kept at low prices through price controls and abundance to ensure that they compete other countries for market share and thus allow them to make sizeable profits.This can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism.This existence of the private sector,taxing the rich,at these parameters,nationalisation of national resources and price controls that existed in Lula run Brazil,Morales run Bolivia and Chaves/Madurai run Venezuela can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism meaning Venezuela,Brazil and Bolivia under control of Chavez,Maduro,Lula and Morales are state capitalist and not socialist.Many of the private business such as Empresas Polar,El Universal and so on many of which were not only private corporations but also critical of Chavez thus shutting down any concept of Venezuela being a dictatorship.If Chavez and Maduro were and are dictators then these corporations would not exist or would have been shut down or nationalised and the CEOs murdered or jailed but they were not thus showing free speech and opposing views and capitalism was allowed to flourish under their presidency.The healthcare and oil corporations were nationalised which is the exact opposite of socialism and occurs in Norway and virtually every single capitalist country.Any business that are state owned were nationalised not socialised.It was only when the oil prices tanked and them putting all their eggs in one basket and not having a safety net for a rainy day like Norway that the economy tanked and also the effect of sanctions by America including the harsh ones from the Trump administration trying to illegally overthrow Maduro and do exactly what the Obama administration did in Libya and Syria and Bush Jr did in Iraq and install a puppet dictator to secure the vast reservoirs of oil.The main cause for the recession just after the death of Chavez caused by the fall in oil prices was too much corporate control of the economy and would have been non existent had the government gained more control of the economy and a majority share of it by nationalising etc and gaining more state owned enterprises in all sectors of the economy thus reducing corporate control from 65% to somewhere between 10-20% that would have diversified the economy by eliminating all private enterprises in Venezuela which did not occur because at least 65% of the Venezuelan economy is under private control.Therefore the economic collapse of the Venezuelan economy was due to capitalism not socialism and a lack of government control of the economy and too much corporate control of the economy and not the other way around.Had Chavez and Maduro actually been a “socialist dictators” by the bullshit definition or by real definition state capitalists and seized control of the areas of the economy that were under corporate control and had 80-90% of the economy under state control or even just at least 50-80% and had corporate control of the economy between 30-50% or even 10-20% it would have  meant that that the government would have diversified enough of the economy and gain direct investment from these diversified sectors and be earning more money through these areas especially if they were state owned enterprises that gained profits rather than nationalisation as in the case of oil thus allowing profits to be fed directly into the government for further investment and could have allowed those profits to go into social welfare thus eliminating the need to borrow obscene amounts of money thus preventing the country going into debt or the profits could have been used to cover the debts with this also diversifying the economy enough preventing Dutch disease to the point that once the oil proces fell the economy could have stayed afloat or the shock and economic crash after the death of Chavez would have been exponentially less disastrous and there could have been a quick recovery due to them relying on other sectors of the economy there would be enough money to cover the debts as well as still intake large amounts of money for GDP to be continually rising and the value of the countries currency would have not plummeted and the economy would have been diversified enough to have fallen back onto all other parts of the economy.Attempts at price fixing and a command economy were futile or basic half attempts that didn’t really do much to hasten the fall in the price of oil with the country having many private corporations in charge of key sectors such as food distribution in the form of Emperses Polar they could have contributed extra billions every year if bought by the state.Therefore the economic collapse in Venezuela after the Chavez adminstration and the Maduro administration was a result of not too much government regulation and control or socialism but in fact too little government control and regulations but also too much of the economy being privatised and under the control of private corporations.It was the result of runaway capitalism namely state capitalism the same economic system of the United States,a Maoist China and Soviet Russia and not socialism – the exact opposite of conservatives and capitalists think it was.Chavez and Maduro operated a quasi command economy through price fixes and also through guaranteed markets present alongside bailouts to several of its many key private corporate interests making it just as corrupt etc and just as much a state capitalist state as its imperilist.Regulations were put in place to a degree to make it difficult for new private enterprises to be set up thus ensuring that key businesses were kept afloat with some democratic control given to the populace with regards passing legislation that allowed Chavez to have an indefinite term as well as other chanted to the constitution but all taxes,regulations etc were not democratically decided upon and although cooperatives were set up they only consisted of small part of the economy with the private sector dominating the economy.Venezuela is a prime example of not how socialism destroys a countries but how runaway capitalism can and how not to do state capitalism as the command economy was half assed at best and can be called quasi state capitalism as the majority of the economy was in private control and there was vain half assed attempts for state control.Any other economic crashes that occurred during or after the administrations of other “left wing socislist dictators” in South America,Central America and indeed the rest of the world can be blamed on there being too much privatisation and private control of the country of the economy that are caused by the same problems as Venezuela which follows the same pattern across countries that have too much of their economies controlled by the private sector.Furthermore the largest corporation that manufactures and distributes manufactured food products is Empresas Polar headed by Lorenzo Mendoza a supporter of the opposition and IMF who has been hoarding large stocks of food raising food prices and making the famine even worse while Maduro has been raiding these stocks to get them into the hands of his electorate and doing other things to lower food prices and educating people how to grow crops and tear livestock to alleviate the famine.This is not the sign of a dictatorship.On Mendozas,the IMF and the oppositions part part stealing stocks of food and preventing Maduro distributing it to the citizens of Venezuela constitutes as genocide -and we all know what thats gonna get him.Maduro and Chavez were democratically elected and all changed to the constitution were through legal means decided by public referendum.If you still think thats not happening there and in Syria and Iran has nothing to do with oil companies wanting the vast reserves of oil then youve been effectively brainwashed into following propaganda aimed to keep you subservient.Doesnt matter any ways all of the vast reserves of oil etc in Venezuela,Iran,Bolivia and Syria is going to be worthless in less than ten years time.State ownership of news stations or any business,government control of the economy such as through price controls that occured in Venezuela and Cuba cannot happen in socialism or communism only capitalism namely state capitalism.Therefore it is runaway capitalism not socialism that is responsible for the economic crash in Venezuela and Chavez and Maduro are not socialist dictators.Any regulation that existed was lax  such as lax price fixing and had it adopted complete deregulation then the crash in the economy would have exponentially worse and probably more lax than America ie was more lax than the most draconian “socialist” corporate democrats.It did take control of banks and some but not all private farms but that’s about it except of course you know the oil and aluminium..The state taking control of banks and farms is not socialism its state capitalism like how Mao and Lenin had state run farms.Socialism as well have established is having the public itself control the means of production of state control of the means of production.The mistake Chavez made was not allowing private competitors or realising that the state did not have to to take over agriculture because unlike Maoist Russia and Soviet Russia – Venezuela like most of South America do not need as stringent regulations or government interference with regards to agriculture as there is enough arable land,predictable stable climate and expansion for growth and predictable climate for it to rely entirely on private control especially due to modern day machinery.Prior to his interference Venezuala was producing more than enough to feed itself and export them to make a sizeable profit and was not in need of being a net importer of food.It only became a net importer of food after the economic crash and after Chavez interfered.The farms being taken over was more about indigenous rights and redistribution of it from wealthy private farmers to etc rather than them being state owned.The land was taken to wealthy farmers and then given to poor private farmers.The farms are still privately owned and managed they were just given to poor people based on indigenous rights etc with the purpose of his reforms also being to put poor urban people to work in the countryside being similar to the Great Leap Forward of Mao with again this can only occur in state capitalism not communism or socialism.The agriculture in Venezuela is still privately operated by private farmers just now those who don’t know how to farm.Furthermore  a lot of the farmland was illegally owned prior to him coming into office so part of the agricultural reforms was getting rid of illegal corrupt and greedy private farmers.Furthermore it was taken from wealthy farmers etc and then usually given to other less wealthy individuals that were private entrepreneurs meaning it was still to a degree privatisation just taken from wealthy people and then given to poorer people who were still capitalists and they were heavily regulated.The government still does not run most the farms in Venezuela they are privately owned and managed under misguided stewardship of state sponsored programmes which can only occur in state capitalism or even laisse faire capitalism.These are not state run farms.The reason why the yields dropped was because he put people in charge of farms who were inexperienced in running them rather than them being government run farms.The idea was to move poor urban people with zero understanding of agriculture to become private farmers by taking it from wealthy private farmers to then turn poor urban people into private wealthy farms.The farms are still private farms they are just now under the control of people who are not skilled at farming.The banks taken over by the state was done to provide cheap loans to fund his social programmes.There are still numerous private banks in Venezuela and those owned by the state are state owned corporations not socialised or nationalised banks.Venezuela has since 1999 under both Chavez and Maduro two thirds of economy is under private control with for every state owned sector there is a private competitors.This is government mismanagement not control and was done as part of returning farmland to native indigenous people and urban poor people who were not skilled at farmers.Any government influence in agriculture like oil etc is through government programmes,state owned corporations and nationalisation and not socialism.Nationslisation and state owned corporations as we have explained here is the exact opposite of socialism.Attempts to rectify this after the crash was to introduce measures to make Venezuelans especially urban ones self sufficient by setting up urban farms in cities to alleviate the problem they created which was actually quite successful.Chavez and Maduro if they had the hired better economists,agricultural scientists etc could have prevent the recession and hyperinflation and still had the same it better reduction in poverty.If they wanted the state to run agriculture then they should have set up vertical farms because Aquaponics in vertical farms allows the state to run farms that have consistently high yields at least 6-10 times more than conventional farmers.He and Maduro are only called socialist dictators that need to be overthrown despite all evidence contradicting this because of one simple fact – Venezuela has the largest reserves of oil in the world larger than Saudi Arabia,Afghanisthan and Iraq etc you know the countries we already spreed “freedom” to and are turning a blind eye to economic friends and buddies the Saudi Arabian princes whose genocide in Yemen we are funding  – you know those places and Maduro and Chavez like other so called dictators didn’t want the American fossil fuel companies getting profits from it and instead he wanted state owned Venezuelan oil companies to use profits to spend on social welfare programmes and to bring millions of Venezuelans out poverty – just like every other “socialist dictator” of oil rich nations.Furthermore “socialism” now come to describe governments whose country has large reserves of oil and gas we want our fossil fuel corporations to seize for themselves to get rich off but they won’t give it to us instead they are using the profits to lift millions of their own people out of poverty – the big selfish meanies.When a country has large reserves of oil and the government wants to use that oil to fund social welfare programmes to lift millions of people out of poverty and not give it to American oil corporations then its likely your going to have an illegal coup and the leader of that country is going to be called a “socialist dictator” despite being leaders of countries that are predominantly capitalist who are democratically elected.So yeah Venezuala has the largest reserves of oil on the planet larger than Saudi Arabia and that oil is under the control of state owned corporations namely Petróleos de Venezuela(PDSVA) that can only occur in state capitalism and not socialism under the control of Maduro(formerly Chavez) who are using that oils profits to fund social welfare programmes that have lifted millions of people out of poverty – and the American oil companies like Exxon etc don’t like that they want that oil for themselves to make billions of more profits every year like the greedy assholes they are.To do that they need to overthrow Maduro,install a puppet like Juan Guido and have him let the oil companies in and make the citizens poor again and to that they need to make shit up about Venezuela being socialist despite all of the statistics and evidence saying otherwise.Disagree with that fact and you’re a fucking idiot.If an economic crash of this magnitude happened anywhere else in the world that did not have as much oil as Venezuala or not at all I can bet your ass that you wouldn’t  hear a peep from Donald Trump,Faux News and rest of the swamp and vloggers.As Andrew Mcabe recounts in “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump” – Then Trump brought up Venezuela: “That’s the country we should be going to war with next,”Trump said, according to McCabe’s recounting. “They have all that oil and they’re right on our back door.”.Further reiterating this on MSNBC – he stated.The president’s remarks to the room were along the lines of ‘I don’t understand why we’re not looking at Venezuela.Why are we not at war with Venezuela?’”This shows that the attempted illegal coup and a war with Venezuala involving the CIA puppet Juan Guido was in fact orchestrated by Donald Trump himself and had nothing to do with “freedom” and fighting socialism and more to do with the oil and being a greedy asshole.He was willing to start another illegal imperialist war like Bush Jr did with Afghanistan and Iraq for oil and was willing to waste trillions more of taxpayers money on another illegal war that could have been spent of universal healthcare or a dual option,ending homeless and solve other of the countries problems and would have lead to more human rights abuses,torture and was willing to carry out torture and war crimes etc and was willing to allow millions of more people to needlessly die including American soldiers and possibly more American citizens through the lone wolf attacks and terrorist attacks inspired by perpetual warfare in Venezuela and Syria etc especially considering if he would have had a second term in office he would gone and started more illegal wars with Syria,Iran etc again for oil and made no effort to ending the illegal imperialist war in Afghanistan and Iraq to secure the oil and put the world in the brink of WWW3 all for reserves of oil I have shown here would have been worthless within a few years or even decades ago.He also broke his promise on getting American troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq meaning he can be charged for the death tolls and war crimes from 2001-2021 onwards during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as shown by the fact that he was willing to go to war over Venezuala over the oil means he sure as hell was not going to pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan and war with Syria and Iran was inevitable if elected for a second term in 2020-2024 especially considering the fact that both Syria and Iran have large reserves of oil themselves and he already fired the first shot at instigating wars with Iran and Syria.If he won in 2020 and Coronavirus pandemic never occurred Donal Trump would have likely kept troops in Afghanisthan and Iraq and attempted another coup in Venezuela,Bolivia and also Syria and Iran this costing trillions more of taxpayers money and more importantly costing more American lives and Iranian,Venezuelan and Syrian both military personnel and civilians.A war with these countries would have led to them lasting for another two decades even if Biden became present in 2024 because it would been harder to pull out of Venezuela,Iran and Syria – the reason being that it would have harder to pull out of a country just starting a war.Part of the reason Biden was able to end the Afghanistan was because it was beginning to wind down after twenty years despite the fact that it was a losing victory.A war with Venezuela would lead to millions of Venezuelans flooding into the rest of South America and also  Central America especially Mexico further destabilising the country and the entirety of South America and possibly ironically North America as well as even further destabilising Central America including Mexico because all of those Venezuelans moving into Central America including Mexico would inevitably lead to these Venezuelans and more Mexicans moving into North America at the borders which would further lead to more immigrants from Mexico including those from Venezuela flooding into America at the borders the exact opposite of what Trumpists want.This scenario is the likeliest scenario because it’s exactly what happened when America started the Syrian civil war that resulted in millions of Syrians flooding into all of Europe such as Finland,Sweden,France etc which are just as far away from Syria as America is from Venezuela.A war with Venezuela would destabilise all of South of Central America that would lead to millions of Venezuelans and Mexicans flooding into the borders of South America.A war with Syria would lead to even more refugees flooding into Europe with even more line wolf attacks on American soil with a war with Iran agan more lone wolf attacks inspired terrorist attacks in both Europe and America,more Muslims flooding into Europe and put the world on the brink of a nuclear Holocaust with them also wasting trillions of more taxpayers money that could have paid for a dual healthcare option and leading to millions of more dead bodies including American soldiers and citizens.The wars with Venezuela,Syria,Iran would lead to twenty or more years of warfare in the Middle East and Venezuela,destabilise the entire Middle East and both South and Central America for decades to come until at least 2040 and lead to millions of more dead bodies including American soldiers and citizens through the wars themselves and more lone wolf terrorist attacks inspired by them alongside civilians in these countries and trillions of more taxpayers money wasted that could have paid for universal healthcare and the list goes on and put the world at the brink of a nuclear holocaust.That and his genocide of his own citizens during the pandemic is why the associations of Donald Trump as a tyrant and a bloodthirsty dictator on par with Hitler by progressives are justified and the fact that you are unable to understand this means you have the mental capacity of a kindergartener.Donald Trump was willing to risk causing more civilian and military personal deaths and was willing to put the world at risk of nuclear holocaust with zero interest in the consequences his actions of starting a war with Venezuela,Iran and Syria and was unwilling to end the war with Iraq and Afghanistan thus meaning he did not care about the millions of more lives that could have been lost as a result and the trillions of more dollars wasted on them that could have eliminated poverty,healthcare problems etc in America and that was done with malicious intent which is a sure fire way to get tortured for a few hundred million years.As shown by his attempted coups and be charged an extra 1,000,000 years for the attempt.This is also why he deserves to given sentences for all deaths in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars alongside George Bush Jr because he was unlikely to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to maintain security of the oil and it also applies to his coup in Bolivia.Him granting legal immunity to the Saudi Princes and also funding their genocide in Yemen alongside him cutting back on aid to civilians in Yemen during the pandemic shows he had zero interest in the safety of the lives of the Yemenese people and was content making business deals and money over human life again malicious intent.These wars would have wasted trillions of more taxpayers dollars that could have solved homelessness,provided universal healthcare etc and cost millions of more lives and led to more destabilisation of both the Middle East and the entirety of Latin America both South and Central America and inspired more terrorist attacks in America and Europe.Furthermore it would have put us on the brink of of World War 3 and a nuclear holocaust with Iran and Syria.All of this was by following the selfish asshole ethos of Ayn Rand.This is the actions of an immature 70 year old with the mentality of a 5-10 year old.This is what happens when you elect people with mental capacity of a 5-10 year old in the body of a 70 year old.Trumps actions are not the actions of an adult endowed with the wisdom of old age rather a man with the mental capacity of a baby.This is where the anti Trump rhetoric comes from.The real draconian measures in Venezuela came in after the economic crash thus too little too late and were still not socialism.Unlike Mao,Lenin Maduro and Chavez were not economic geniuses they had good intentions and they did reduce poverty but did not know how to effectively run an economy especially one as complex as Venezuela by not diversifying enough,not setting up a rainy day trust fund,printing more money only to increase hyperinflation and running government owned corporations etc into the ground running them at a loss until they went bankrupt,a perfect storm of mismanagement,economic illiteracy,agricultural illiteracy,putting all of ones eggs in one basket,Dutch diseasss etc.Had they had better economists on their side and actual agricultural scientists in their cabinet then the economic shock would not have occurred or been not as bad and agricultural productivity would have increased with even if the economic shock and recession never occurred he’d still be labelled a socialist dictator simply because of all of the oil in Venezuela.Venezuala has the largest reserves of oil on the planet,larger than Saudi Arabia and Iraq and Afghanistan something which oil corporations have wanted ever since the failed Venezuelan coup in 2002 under the Bush administration.The oil is under the control of a state owned corporation named PDSVA in order to have the profits used to fund infrastructure and social programmes and state owned corporations can only exist in state capitalism and not socialism.Remember socialism involves bringing something under the control of the public themselves including the workers by turning it into a coop and state owned corporations can only exist in state capitalism as it is to allow the profits be fed into the state treasury.Even if some sectors were nationalised this is again not socialism and nationalisation can only occur in state capitalism.The government taking control of farms,supermarkets,factories etc is also following the machinations of state capitalism not socialism.The economic crash in Venezuela was a godsend to the military industrial complex and fossil fuel companies because it gave them a pretext and excuse to overthrow Maduro and install Juan Guido as the knight in shining armour to those poor Venezuelans even if they failed – miserably under the orange haired one with the onion brain..As stated this attempted illegal coup would still have happened even if an economic collapse never happened because they needed the oil – after all they attempted and failed coup under Bush Jr in 2002 when the economy was rising exponentially why not try under the orange haired one with the onion brain do the same who managed to successfully and illegally overthrow albeit for a while Evo Morales even though Bolivia’s economy was booming.Ask yourself the question why is it that the American government since the end of the Cold War or even during the Cold War has only been involved in wars,coups and humanitarian efforts in countries with large reserves of oil and gas and not those with actual dictators who are killing their own people,allowing millions to die of preventable diseases and starvation,commiting war crimes and involved in training child soldiers?To paraphrase Jimmy Dore “If the United States is trying to help people in a humanitarian way what I would do is I would get a shovel and start digging because I know there is fucking oil somewhere underneath me“.Venezuela is just as much socialist as Afghanistan and Iraq had weapons of mass destruction – two other oil rich countries.Socialist dictator etc was spun by the media in order to bolster the population to support a coup and war this is called manufacturing consent as detailed by Noam Chomsky.For those of you who are not aware of the term manufacturing consent it is a tactic used by a countries government who wants to carry out an illegal war or coup but make it look legitimate.To qdo that what they usually do in order to cover up the fact they are carrying out an illegal war and make it look legitimate and legal is to use buzzwords,propaganda and making shit up and use mainstream media to galvanise public support for that war.For America its usually when said country has large reserves of oil in the case of Iraq it was making shit up about their being weapons of mass destruction that didn’t exist and using that to justify an illegal war that has been going on for 20 years now.To an extent it was used for Afghanisthan when really Saudi Arabia should have been the target and for Syria etc.The CIA etc made up bullshit about non existent weapons of mass of destruction being present in Iraq and Saddam being tied to 9/11 that did not exist at all to give them authorisation from the United Nations and gain public support by pounding them with propaganda through Fox News,CNN,Colin Powell,George Bush Jr,Donald Rumsfeld,Condazella Rice etc and this was done again through Syria etc in 2011 and again with Venezuela,Iran etc to the case of Venezuela it involves labelling a predominantly capitalist country socialist to justify illegal coups and wars when the statistics say otherwise.Russia under Putin is using this to a degree in order to carry out his illegal war with Ukraine and NATO.In otherwards it is how governments through making shit up and using propaganda in mainstream corporate and state controlled mass media to beat the drums for war and gain public support for said war.Venezuala like Bolivia where Trump carried out another unsuccessful illegal coup due to the country having the largest reserves of oil on the planet in the hand of a state owned corporation namely PDSVA you are going to hear Cold War era buzzwords like “socialism” and “socialist dictator” being thrown around liberally despite the people using it not knowing anything about economies.Since it’s less likely for Maduro to be housing weapons of mass destruction than Saddam(which didn’t exist) then considering the oil is under the control a state owned corporation that can only occur in state capitalism then the world your going to hear a lot of is “socialist dictator” by playing on the general public’s ignorance of economics.Notice the fact that Venezuela and Maduro was not called or labelled socialist by the mainstream media and vloggers and was completely igonored by them despite the crash occuring in 2013 until after Donald Trump came to office in 2017 and had that 2017 meeting with Andrew Mcabe.Between 2013-2017 there was very little coverage of the economic collapse in Venezuela on Faux News,CNN etc because Obama was in power and he was putting economic sanctions on the country.Yes there were frequent reports about the economic crash in Venezuela here and there between 2013-2016 but once Trump came to power and had that meeting was their a major increase of reports of the failure of the Venezuelan “socialist” failure because Obama was very wisely towing the line with Venezuela to prevent any incursions with the country.This all changed once Trump came to office and after that meeting involving Andrew McCabe in 2017 four years after the collapse only then did Faux News,CNN etc and even PragerU and Reason TV suddenly start taking notice,carried out an all out onslaught against “socialism” and beating the drums for war alongside all of the oil lobbyists,Republicans and Corporate Democrats.Even progressives like Tulsi Gabbard,Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocazio Cortez had to publicly denounce Chavez and Maduro as dictators in order to tow the line as being “democratic socialists” they had to publicly denounce Venezuala as a socialist failure and still label Norway as democratic socialism in order to make themselves look good and keep people loyal and say that’s not us.Saudi Aramco is a state owned oil corporation in Saudi Arabia but Saudi Arabia is labelled capitalist because American governments have struck a deal to get cheap oil from it and turn a blind eye to the human rights abuses and war crimes of the Saudi Arabian governments and that most of the 9/11 hijackers were from there making the notion that Venezuela is socialist Orwellian doublespeak.Economic crashes,hyperinflation,recessions and boom and bust cycles can only occur in a completely deregulated or lax regulated capitalist economies –  it can never happen in command and planned economies and with the presence of government regulations and government control control of the economy or even in socialism or communism both the bullshit or proper definition.The reason being is because the whole purpose of planned and command economies and government regulations and government control of the economy that is where the government gain controls of the economy or sets down regulations to stabilise economic growth  is to eliminate,prevent or lessen the intensity of boom and bust cycles,hyperinflation,recessions and economic crashes in the first place.Therefore the fact that an economic crash did occur in Venezuela under Chavez means there was no command economy,no government regulations put in place and no government control of the economy existed because the whole purpose of command and planned economies and government regulation is to prevent economic crashes,hyperinflations in the first place.Therefore by using actual logic – the thing conservatives seen to be unable to understand or utilise for a single second due to their brains being underdeveloped since an economic crash occurred there was no government regulation or no government control of the economy present at all making the Venezuelan crash the result of runway deregulation and runaway capitalism not socialism or communism because the whole purpose of government regulations and command economies is to prevent economic crashes and hyperinflation in the first place.Any regulations that existed was extremely lax with only a few price fixing regulations but even they were very lax to begin with.This is basic kindergarten level economics that I should not have to explain to adults.If a country is going through a recession,hyperinflation of inflation or any type of economic crash then its because of government deregulation,lack of government regulation and lack of a command control of the economy and lacking of planned or command economies.It is because the government has almost no control in the economy.This is because the whole propose of government regulations,planned and command economies that is where the government steps in and seized control of the economy and where the government has a majority control of the countries economies is to prevent recessions,hyperinflation economic crashes in the first place.Runaway capitalism that is where the government has minimal control of the economy,private corporations have a majority control of the economy and the economy is completely deregulated is the very thing that capitalists,libertarians and conservatives want is the very thing is what caused the economic crash in Venezuela under Chavez and Maduro.Deregulation is a capitalist institution not a socialist one because the whole purpose of deregulation is to allow private corporations especially when they have majority control of the economy to do whatever they want and get away Scot free and prevent hyperinflation,recessions etc.Therefore the fact that the country has a deregulated economy and a majority of its economy under control of private corporations shows it was not socialism that caused the crash in Venezuela.The obscene hyperinflation and food shortages seen in Venezuela is what occurred under Yeltsin in post Soviet Russia,the Scissor Crises and again was caused by deregulation of the economy and adoption of free market principles because it can only occur due to deregulation and free market principles wherein the economy is under majority control of private corporations and planned and command economies are abandoned and would be what had occurred in China and Russia both in the time of Mao and Stalin and modern times had they adopted a completely deregulated economy which why these countries need planned and Command economies.The Venezuelan government took control of sector of the economy and business through legally buying them and turning them into state owned corporations which can only occur in state capitalism and not socialism.The reason why Maoist China,Soviet Russia and modern day China and Russia adopted command and planned economies controlled by the state because if they didn’t then it would end up with the same level of hyperinflation and famine seen in Venezuela and post soviet Russia wherein the price of food would skyrocket and shelves would be empty – therefore deregulation in the economy which is a capitalist concept not a socialist one is what caused the crash in Venezuela which can only occur in runaway capitalism and and not “socialism”.If you don’t understand that fact your a fucking idiot.The only way to become an economic superpower and remain an economic superpower indefinitely is to have the economy regulated through a command and planned economy which can only occur in state capitalism not socialism or communism but a planned economy in socialism and free market systems like state capitalism other types can suffice while all of the other competitor economies worldwide are unregulated markets that allow for the economy to continuously go through boom and bust cycles that even when they reach their height of each boom it is also different and not static and the higher it goes the greater the recession while your economy through regulation constantly goes upwards forever into infinity while everyone elses economy stays in constant state of boom and bust.It is also is the only way to eliminate poverty as it prevents boom and bust cycles and prevents hyperinflation and ensures that GDP,wages and ones incomes rises exponentially every year.The fact that a recession and hyperinflation occured shows a command or planned economy that can only occur under “socialism” did not exist therefore deregulation which is what most libertarians and capitalists want in America means runaway capitalism is what was responsible.This is why other countries that are rich in oil,gas and coal that had strong social welfare programmes including Scandinavia and the Middle East did not suffer hyperinflation and recessions once the price of oil tanked.This is basic kindergarten level economics.I should not have to explain this basic shit to adults.If this socialism then you are basically pulling straws desperately at what the definition of socialism actually is because what happened in Venezuela is the exact opposite of both the bullshit or real definition of socialism because only hyperinflation of that level can only occur within the confines of a deregulated capitalist economy.If the coup in Venezuela was successful the first thing that Juan Guido and the US government would find out if they wanted to deregulate the economy is that their was very little if any deregulation they could carry out because the economy was already completely deregulated in the first place with them unable to deregulate the economy even further and them continuing this deregulation would cause an endless cycle of boom and bust cycle that keeps poor people poor and keeps hyperinflation at record high levels.Except when these crashes occur it will still be blamed on socialism for some reason.Runaway capitalism is also the very thing that caused the 1929 Great Depresion,2007 Great Recession and 1991 recession in Russia.Blaming socialism and government control on the Venezuelan crash is like blaming the 1991 Russian crash,1929 Depression and 2007 recession on the government and socialism which is bullshit at this point.The 1991-2010 recession in post Soviet Russia,the 1929 Great Depression and the Great Recession 2007/2008  proves that deregulation and runaway capitalism is the only way for economic crashes to ever occur it cannot occur in a regulated economy with government having majority control of the economy it can only occur in a deregulated economy where corporations have a majority of the economies control therefore the crash in Venezuela is also caused by deregulation and runaway capitalism.Recessions and hyperinflation etc can only occur within the confines of deregulated capitalist economies where the state has minimal control of the economy and private corporations have majority control of the economy and free reign to whatever they want –  this has been shown again and again throughout human history such as 1929,1993 and 2007.I shouldn’t have to be explaining this basic economics shit to adults.Chavez and Maduro had almost zero control of the economy they literally deregulated everything except some price fixing they only bought the oil under a state owned corporation which was done by buying it legally from private corporations and turning it into a state owned corporation which can only occur in state capitalism and the country was predominantly controlled by private enterprises which cannot occur in state capitalism.But no unfortunately I have to due to effective brainwashing on part of Faux News and PragerU etc and the level ignorance that so called adults have.This is basic kindergarten level shit I should not have to explain to adults.Economic crashes whether they are localised ones or global ones can only ever occur due to deregulation in the economy and thus limited government control of the economy and thus capitalism because the whole purpose of government control and regulation of the economy is prevent economic crashes in the first place and not “socialism”.Economic crashes can never occur under socialism either the real or bullshit definition because in socialism planned economies exist to prevent boom and bust cycles.The economic crash was caused by government mismanagement,Dutch disease and overspending and Dutch diseases which is not runaway capitalism and government control of the economy which is the exact opposite of government control of the economy.No government regulations existed to prevent the collapse caused by a combination of Dutch Disease,overspending etc.Had planned economies and financial regulations existed and Chavez was still overspending and Dutch disease was a problem then the collapse would have still happened but it would not have as severe as it was.Printing and of more money occurred after the crash but this was government mismanagement not socialism.Recessions,hyperinflation and economic crashes are almost always the result of lack of regulation in the economy.The only state owned corporations were those that controlled the oil(duh) and aluminium.As stated private control of the Venezuala economy actually increased by 6% from 65%-71% during both administrations of Chavez and Maduro from 2000-2020 thus showing that the government had barely any control of the economy.All they did was have the oil and aluminium industry managed by state owned corporations which can only occur in state capitalism and start social welfare programmes which can occur in capitalist systems.How can a country be considered socialist when the amount of private control in the economy actually increased and no regulations to prevent the economic crash existed thus leading to an economic crash.Going around blaming socialism(where the government supposedly has complete control of the economy) on the crash of the Venezuelan economy when there was no regulation present to prevent the recession in the first place is kindergarten level logic and only the bottom of the barrel with double digits IQs of at least 40-60 would believe this.How can a country be considered socialist or communist when private control of the economy actually increases under the adminstrations of socialist dictators and command economies and regulations to prevent economic crashes do not exist.If Chavez and Maduro did carry out a socialist revolution then it was an  absolute failure in every sense of the word due to these statistics.Furthermore they did not bring any sectors of the economy and corporations into public ownership or any form of ownership as per socialism such as any media stations,the oil,healthcare,farmland etc they turned them all into state owned corporations where the profits generated are fed into treasury which is not socialism.Chavez did increase the amount of cooperatives present to at least several hundred thousand but they were primarily small ones that didn’t hire that much individually with cooperatives having only a small percentage of the economic control and there were millions of more people working for them but it did not comprise of a significant amount with private corporations still having two thirds majority ownership of the economy.There are only a few large cooperatives that comprise a small percentage of the economy the thousands more are only small businesses like bars,restaurants,retail outlets etc that individually have only a few dozen people.About less than 1% of the economy is comprised of cooperatives.The machinations of state capitalism was carried out where they were converted into state owned corporations via state ownership of them via the state purchasing them through legal means and the state generating profits from them which is the exact opposite of socialism and is in fact state capitalism.Remember state owned corporations like PDSVA can only exist in state capitalism and not socialism.The evidence that Venezuala under Chavez and Maduro  were socialist or communist simply doesn’t exist.The evidence that it was state capitalist does exist therefore it was state capitalist.Same for Guevara and Castro and every socialist and communist dictator.The same state ownership of natural resources through state owned corporations and major social welfare programmes and also increase in private control of the economy occured in Bolivia,Brazil and all of Latin America under so called socialist dictators between 2000 – 2020 and thus was not socialism but rather again state capitalism.As detailed here Chavez changed the constitution by running a presidential campaign to remove the existing constitution and install a new one thus dissolving the previous government and any changes to the constitution to eliminate term limits were  done democratically through allow the voting public vote on them.As for the government having control of the media the country has dozens of private newspapers,live news stations and radio stations that are allowed to openly run opposing views including propaganda that are critical of both Chavez and Maduro all the time with newspapers and live news stations existing that are neutral that criticise or praise them at varying times.Private media such as live news stations accounts for 70-92% of all live news watched by Venezuelans and state owned media accounts for only 8.4% of viewership.It’s a known fact that opposition groups including Empersas Polar CEO Lorenzo Mendoza are purposefully worsening the food crises by restricting people access to food and drink even sabotaging international food aid sent to Venezuela to purposefully worsen the problem to instigate riots with the government taking in food aid from other countries and starting government programmes to teach people to grow their own food in order to eliminate famine and shortages.Hardly a dictatorship the government is doing everything it can to alleviate the food shortages and allows opposing views on the media.Venezuela is following
 the Nordic countries like Sweden,Norway,Finland and Denmark etc there are social welfare programs and state ownership of key sectors of the economy with Norway,Sweden etc having the post,rail and oil and gas owned by the state via state owned corporations and yet it still has the vast majority of the economy under control of private companies.The difference is Venezuela deregulated the economy with only price fixing etc and did not adopt a planned economy with Sweden,Norway etc having planned economies to prevent recessions and inflation and that is why Venezuela had a recession and Norway,Sweden etc did not.The “socialist” economies of Latin America including Brazil,Bolivia etc follow the same trend as Venezuela and the Nordic model of Sweden,Norway,Denmark etc that is corporate majority control of the economy with key industries such as raw elements and oil,gas etc  under the control of the state through state owned corporations and strong social welfare programmes and private enterprises are free to do what they want except for basic worker and environmental regulations they are therefore state capitalist not socialist countries.The difference is the Latin American countries dont tax the poor as much and don’t have planned economies therefore recessions occured.Therefore the economies of Brazil,Venezuela,Bolivia etc are the same as Sweden,Finland,Denmark and are therefore not socialist they are state capitalist if you think otherwise you’re a ticking idiot..Conservatives calling Venezuela and the Latin countries socialism and Nordic countries capitalist is Orwellian doublethink at this point because they are one in the same.This is because Latin America are just as socialist as the Nordic countries are socialist.Therefore the Nordic model can also be referred to the Latin-Nordic Model.







State Capitalism in Soviet Russia:
Soviet Russia is a prime example of state capitalist economies.Enterprises in the Soviet Union were legal private entities engaged in some kind of economic activity,such as production distribution,the provision of services,or any other economic operation.An enterprise was the general equivalent of “company”,which was the legal entity prominent outside of the Eastern-bloc economies.Enterprises and production units engaged in activities that are generally undertaken by business-enterprises in capitalist systems,including the design,production,manufacture and distribution of producer and consumer goods and services.In contrast to business enterprises,enterprises and production associations did not engage in business-related activities such as marketing,buying-and-selling and financial decisions.Everything except “the commanding heights”, as Lenin put it, of the economy would be privatized.The commanding heights included foreign trade,heavy industry,communication and transport among others.These state run industries and state run farms were run like capitalist corporations and farms with the same hierarchical structures and the profits were fed directly into the state for further investment and not social welfare hence why they were state run industries and sectors.They were not communist because communism requires the complete dissolution of the state while they were not socialist because they were state owned corporations wherein the state provided goods and services for a profit to fund social programmes,infrastructure and GDP etc not publicly owned industries which are two completely different things.State owned corporations like the ones that existed in Soviet Russia can only exist in state capitalism.State owned corporations existed in Soviet Russia  because due to the profit nature of state owned corporations the money generated by profits was fed directly into the states treasury to be used for GDP,investing in infrastructure and social welfare which cannot occur in communism and socialism.Thus everything outside of these such as retail,restaurants,agriculture,artisans etc was legally allowed to have citizens run privately owned business in these areas to act as competitors to state owned enterprises to pick up the slack and allow private citizens gain profits to gain more disposable income to buy more from state run services and business.In practice this limited the private sector to artisan and agricultural production/trade and well as restaurants and retail outlets.From its very inception Soviet Russia was state capitalist as private enterprises existed prior to the legalisation of private farmers in the form private retailers,artisans,restaurants etc in all sectors of the economy outside of the commanding heights.Private entrepreneurs were required to meet quotas and were allowed to supersede them as the more profits they made the more disposable income income they had to buy goods from state run enterprises.They were not however allowed to corner markets and sector that the state had secured in order to prevent imbalances in the economy such as the Scissor Crises.By having private businesses in its economy the government of Soviet Russia preferred the term enterprises rather than the terms corporation,business,company to distance itself from capitalism despite being state capitalist.Should any of them begin to flounder they were bailed out and they were guaranteed markets to the state and also to international markets in order to keep the running.The state to keep them running even would carry out legal procedures that would put them at a loss meaning the state would go into debt in order to keep private enterprises afloat with these guaranteed markets to the state and international markets would be ensured these enterprises always had consistent sales and were kept automatically afloat with goods purchased by the state from private enterprises sold on international markets at a profit to ensure the private sector would flourish with this also eliminating any debts the state incurred in order to bail out private enterprises.The produce especially food was bought by the state in significant amounts and often sold at a loss sometimes at a profit on international markets or given for free or lower price but mostly sold at a reasonable profit to the poor especially in periods of drought and food shortages.Whenever the private business were in danger of going bankrupt for any reason etc they were bailed out to keep them afloat.As a result a small number of key private corporations and private enterprises had formed monopolies in Soviet Russia similar modern day America whose survival was necessary to keep society and the economy functioning forever through what can be considered a form of cronyism and corruption with them having extreme power and influence on the state that rendered all small time businesses unable to compete.This system of guarenteed markets and bailouts is exactly the same as that carried out by the American government and similar modern day state capitalist societies.If Lenin and Stalin did carry out a communist or socialist revolution then it was an absolute failure in every sense of the word.Please explain this fact how can a country be considered socialist or communist when the state exists,when private enterprises exists,when the amount of private enterprises and its control of the economy increases under their administrations and when the state encourages and props up the formation and development of private enterprises,guarantees them markets and profits and bails them out in order to ensure they stay afloat?If they are communist or socialist then American under the rule of the corporate Democrats,Republicans and both Bush,Obama and Trump administrations are communist and socialist.This system of keeping private enterprises afloat through guarenteed markets from the government and bailouts for private industries by the government to keep them afloat is the exact opposite of both communism and socialism both the real definitions or bullshit definitions because the real definitions of socialism and communism cannot allow private industries to exist in the first place and the bullshit definitions of communism and socialism involve the state quashing out,going out of its way to shut down and eliminate private industries therefore there is no possible way for Soviet Russia to have been either communist or socialist they had to be capitalism namely state capitalism.Therefore all deaths,corruption,censorship and human rights abuses under Stalin and Lenin are attributed to capitalism.Private farmers were particularly initiated and kept afloat because they were needed to feed primarily the rural communities who were most at risk of starvation in the case of famines.Cooperatives did exist but they did not consist of a large or substantial percentage of the economy.The economy of the Soviet Union was divided into for different types of enterprises;privately owned enterprises,collective owned,state run enterprises and mixed enterprises.Private enterprises were divided into those run by private individuals and family run enterprises.Those based on collectivised property includes collective private enterprises,consumer cooperatives,production cooperatives,partnerships,jointly-stock enterprises,enterprises of public or religious organizations.Those that were state run were union state enterprises,republican state enterprises,communal state enterprises with mixed enterprises in the form of mixed and rental enterprises.The New Economic Policy (NEP) was an economic policy of the Soviet Union proposed by Vladimir Lenin in 1921 as a temporary expedient.Lenin characterized the NEP in 1922 as an economic system that would as Lenin put it include “a free market and capitalism, both subject to state control,” while state enterprises would operate on “a profit basis.”The NEP represented a more free market-oriented economic policy (deemed necessary after the Russian Civil War of 1918 to 1922) to foster the economy of the country, which had suffered severely since 1915.The Soviet authorities partially revoked the complete nationalization of industry (established during the period of War Communism of 1918 to 1921) and introduced a system of mixed economy which allowed private individuals to own small enterprises such as private farms/retail outlets/restaurants etc while the state continued to control banks,foreign trade,and large industries.In addition,the NEP abolished prodrazvyorstka (forced grain-requisition)and introduced prodnalog:a tax on farmers, payable in the form of raw agricultural product.The Bolshevik government adopted the NEP in the course of the 10th Congress of the All-Russian Communist Party (March 1921) and promulgated it by a decree on 21 March 1921:”On the Replacement of Prodrazvyorstka by Prodnalog”.Further decrees refined the policy.Other policies included monetary reform (1922–1924) and the attraction of foreign capital.The NEP created a new category of people called NEPmen.Joseph Stalin abandoned the NEP in 1928 with the Great Break.The NEP was primarily a new agricultural policy.The Bolsheviks viewed traditional village life as conservative and backward. With the NEP, the state only allowed private landholdings because the idea of collectivized farming had met strong opposition.Lenin understood that economic conditions were dire, so he opened up markets to a greater degree of free trade, hoping to motivate the population to increase production. Under the NEP, not only were “private property, private enterprise, and private profit largely restored in Lenin’s Russia,” but Lenin’s regime turned to international capitalism for assistance, willing to provide “generous concessions to foreign capitalism.” Lenin took the position that in order to achieve socialism, he had to create “the missing material prerequisites” of modernization and industrial development that made it imperative for Soviet Russia to “fall back on a centrally supervised market-influenced program of state capitalism”. Lenin publicly stated he was following Karl Marx precepts that a nation must first reach “full maturation of capitalism as the precondition for socialist realization.”.State capitalism is generally considered by most scholars the fullest mature form of capitalism.Future years would use the term Marxism–Leninism to describe Lenin’s approach to economic policies which were seen to favor policies that moved the country toward communism.The main policy Lenin used was an end to grain requisitions and instead instituted a tax on the peasants, thereby allowing them to keep and trade part of their produce. At first, this tax was paid in kind, but as the currency became more stable in 1924, it was changed to a cash payment.This increased the peasants’ incentive to produce, and in response production jumped by 40% after the drought and famine of 1921–1922.The NEP encountered strong resistance within the Bolshevik party. NEP economic reforms aimed to take a step back from central planning and allow the economy to become more independent. NEP labor reforms tied labor to productivity, incentivizing the reduction of costs and the redoubled efforts of labor.Labor unions became independent civic organizations.NEP reforms also opened up government positions to the most qualified workers.The NEP gave opportunities for the government to use engineers, specialists, and intelligentsia for cost accounting, equipment purchasing, efficiency procedures, railway construction, and industrial administration.A new class of “NEPmen” thrived.These private traders opened up urban firms hiring up to 20 workers. NEPmen also included rural artisan craftsmen selling their wares on the private market. the early Soviet Union who took advantage of the opportunities for private trade and small-scale manufacturing manufacturing provided under the  The New Economic Policy(NEP, 1921-1928).The famine of 1921-1922 epitomized the adverse effects of War Communism and to mitigate those effects,Vladimir Lenin instituted the NEP, which encouraged private buying and selling, with people even being encouraged to “enrich yourselves”, as one Boshevik leader,Nikolai Bukharin put it.However, many Bolsheviks saw the policy as “a step backwards”. That included Lenin himself, who defended the measure as “taking one step backward to take two steps forward later on”.When the NEP was introduced by Lenin in 1921, many NEPmen took advantage of the chance to establish themselves in Soviet society. Lenin’s plan was to use the NEP as a temporary measure to rebuild the devastated Soviet economy. The NEPmen’s role in the new economic climate was to help spread trade to the parts of the country the government could not reach.In fact, in 1922 the NEPmen accounted for almost 75% of the Soviet Unions retail trade.However, not everyone in the country was happy about the NEP and the emergence of NEPmen. Many Bolsheviks saw the NEPmen as competition and feared that they would end up in positions of power, turning the Soviet Union into a capitalist nation.Lenin was highly criticized by his party members for the NEP because it was essentially capitalism controlled by the state. The disapproval of the NEP by many members of society greatly affected a NEPman’s quality of life. They were closely scrutinized and heavily taxed, and their right to vote was revoked. Lenin combated this slander and disapproval by asserting that the NEP was just a temporary measure required to repair the Soviet’s crumbling economy.He also pointed out that the NEPmen were helping the economy because they could be heavily taxed, providing more revenue for the state. The increase in revenue would aid the government in securing its plans for a socialist society, while also strengthening the economy. In the eyes of those who supported the policy, NEPmen were nothing more than a stepping stone, providing stability for the creation of the Soviet socialist state in that era. However, by the time of Lenin’s death in 1924, the NEPmen were being phased out of society to make room for socialist values, and during the Stalin era, NEPman became a dying breed.In 1922, Lenin had his second stroke, which affected his ability to lead.Before his death in 1924, an obvious power struggle between Stalin and Leon Trotsky had begun.Given the instability in Russian leadership, NEPmen gained a small window of opportunity. After a dramatic drop in sales directly from state industry to NEPmen (14.7% to 2.1%) in 1924, the Soviet economy once again relied heavily on NEPmen for stabilization. Decrees in 1925 and 1926 reduced taxes, state loans were no longer mandatory, and employee penalties were alleviated (i.e., lower number of employees, lower taxes).Although NEPmen enjoyed a more hospitable economic and social environment, it did not indicate that they were universally accepted, but rather tolerated. Stalin frequently expressed his disdain for the NEP and NEPmen. It was public knowledge that he was frustrated with members within the Communist Party who supported the policy.Through a series of tactical political moves, Stalin began to solidify his power. By October 1927, Zinoviev and Trotsky, Stalin’s main opposition, had been removed from the Central Committee and could no longer threaten Stalin.As a result, Stalin gained the maneuverability to propose a new economic strategy, and the freedom to develop means of eliminating private entrepreneurship. In 1928, Stalin reignited the attitudes of the October Revolution era, and aggressively propagated anti-NEPmen propaganda.In the same year, the NEP was replaced by Stalin’s Five Year Plan suggesting that NEPmen would also be replaced. However, some scholars argue that a modified version of NEPmen existed well into the 1930s well after the death of Stalin.Nonetheless, with Stalin’s increasingly unlimited power, tensions escalated, and force became an acceptable means of removing the wealthier class or the “enemy of the people”.These NEPmen that were set up by the state including by Lenin himself were by all technical legal definitions private entrepreneurs and businessmen who partook in private commerce by not only buying goods from private farms and other private enterprises to ensure the economic stability of the country and private farmers which is not allowed in ether communism and socialism either the bullshit or real definition.Lenin had to persuade communist skeptics that “state capitalism” was a necessary step in achieving communism as private enterprises were needed to develop the economy while he himself harbored suspicions that the policy could be abused by private businessmen in Soviet Russia during his administration.So you see Lenin himself saw and labelled Soviet Russia as state capitalism not either communism or socialism by his very own words and thus believed that private enterprises were necessary to the economy when regulated to pick up the slack and develop sectors where it was necessary then Soviet Russia was not a communist or socialist state it was a state capitalist state.How can a country be considered communist and socialist when its leader admits by his own words that it was state capitalist,it needed to be state capitalist and not communist or socialist?Although a large amount of farms were state owned this only applied to large collectivised state capitalist farms with farming businesses also allowed to exist alongside them.In Soviet Russia each citizen especially those living in rural areas was by law set up Lenin was to have mandatory law enforced in all citizens to have their own private plot of land for private food production which the government in legal definitions treated as private farms where they were allowed to grow food for themselves and sell them on farmer markets and to neighbours etc  for profit to prevent complete famine,increase productivity and allow for private individuals to increase disposable income to buy manufactured goods and crops from state owned farms and enterprises.The household plot is primarily cultivated for subsistence and its traditional purpose since the Soviet times has been to provide the family with food.Surplus products from the household plot were sold to neighbors,relatives,and often also in farmer markets in nearby towns for a private which thus by legal terms was considered private enterprises.Thus most agriculture was state run agriculture where the profits went directly to the state and workers were paid a flat wage while each citizen was allowed their own privately owned land on the same land of their home to grow food for themselves and sell for profits which went to them and not the state.They were allowed if not encouraged to grow their own food and sell it for profit as private entrepreneurship to increase disposable income in order to allow them to buy more goods from state run enterprises with the state having no interest in them making a profit with the government aiding in this by guaranteeing markets by buying some of the produce of private farmers and then selling it off to international markets and in some local markets to keep private farmers afloat and them bailed out when they went into trouble with this applied to other private enterprises.Although these private household farms existed before the October Revolution in Czarist Russia the government in the form of Lenin to increase productivity set up laws to not only encourage farmers to set up household plots or maintain them  but also in some areas make it mandatory that these existed in order to increase disposable income of farmers and prevent outright famine.Thus laws were set up by Vladimir Lenin that made it mandatory for all citizens especially those living in rural areas to set up private farms that were to act as private business where they grew food to prevent famines and also be sold for profit.After the New Economic Policy was instituted,agricultural production increased greatly not only in household plots but also collectivised and state run farms.In order to stimulate economic growth,farmers were given the opportunity to sell portions of their crops to the government in exchange for monetary compensation.Farmers now had the option to sell some of their produce,giving them a personal economic incentive to produce more grain.This incentive,coupled with the breakup of the quasi-feudal landed estates,surpassed pre-Revolution agricultural production.This revolution in  private farms thus led to huge increases in food production never before seen in Russia and was thus encouraged to lower the death tolls of famines.The agricultural sector became increasingly reliant on small family farms,while heavy industries,banks,and financial institutions remained owned and run by the state.This created an imbalance in the economy where the agricultural sector was growing much faster than heavy industry.To maintain their income,factories raised prices.Due to the rising cost of manufactured goods,peasants had to produce much more wheat to buy these consumer goods,which increased supply and thus lowered the price of these agricultural products.This fall in prices of agricultural goods and sharp rise in prices of industrial products was known as the Scissors Crisis (due to the crossing of graphs of the prices of the two types of product).Peasants began withholding their surpluses in wait for higher prices,or sold them to “NEPmen” (traders and middle-men) who re-sold them at high prices.Many Communist Party members considered this an exploitation of urban consumers.To lower the price of consumer goods,the state took measures to decrease inflation and enact reforms on the internal practices of the factories.Private farmers through the NEPmen were also able to sell their produce to the government for extra disposable income who themselves ate them or sold them to the public or exported them with this done to ensure that they would survive any imbalance in the economy with them at times even bailed out during this and other crises.This is similar to how the government bought produce etc from private farmers and merchants in Maoist China and how the American government buys contracts and provides lucrative markets to private companies in the form of the military industrial complex,big oil and big pharms.Thus the state provided guaranteed markets to the farmers by buying crops and other goods for them and if needed be bailed them out to make sure they stayed afloat.These goods were sold on international markets sometimes with this done to ensure that they increased productivity and under a promised agreement that the private farmers etc and their employees would use the extra disposable income they gained from profits to buy extra produce from state run enterprises in a mutually beneficial relationship.The government also fixed prices,in an attempt to halt the scissor effect.The household plot was the only form of private or family farming allowed during the Soviet era,when household plots of rural people coexisted in a symbiotic relationship with large collective and state run farms.Since 1990,the household plots are classified as one of the two components of the individual farm sector,the other being peasant farms – independent family farms established for commercial production on much larger areas of agricultural land,typically 10 to 50 ha (25 to 124 acres).In terms of legal organization,household plots are natural (physical) persons,whereas peasant farms generally are legal (juridical) persons.In Czarist Russia,the plot was usually adjacent to the peasant’s house.Here the peasants traditionally grew vegetables,hemp (a source of oil and livestock feed) and a little fruit.Gardens varied in size;they could be as much as a hectare (2½ acres), but most were smaller.The plot was normally in the hereditary tenure of the household, and not subject to repartition(unlike the peasants’ holdings in the open fields).In the later 19th century the growth of towns and cities in central Russia encouraged the development of market gardening and truck farming in this region.By the eve of the Revolution the garden economy was developing quickly.A further stimulus was provided in the first years of the Revolution by the Bolshevik policy of requisitioning peasant produce.Fruit and vegetables were exempt from this policy,and this resulted in a strong swing from grain farming to kitchen and market gardening.In the grain-producing regions (Black-Earth belt and North Caucasia) the garden economy increased its share of peasant commodity production from 3.3% in 1913 to 12.2% in 1920,while the state run field economy declined from 62.6% to 39.3% in the same period.Market gardening continued to develop during the 1920s.The mass collectivization decree of January 1930 made no mention of garden plots,and in many areas the local government authorities abolished them.But in March 1930,after the chaos and peasant resistance engendered by the all-out drive,the right of the peasant to have a personal plot was recognised.No maximum size was agreed at this stage,however,and the garden plot remained in a legislative limbo until the kolkhoz model charter of February 1935.This charter specified that plots could vary from 0.25 to 0.5 ha (0.62 to 1.24 acres), and up to 1 ha (2.5 acres) in special districts.The legislation regarded individual peasants as the holders but in practice plots were still in household tenure.The private plots were responsible for a significant fraction of agricultural production,and provided the peasants with a large part of their food and income.In 1938 they accounted for 12.5% of agricultural produce.The average peasant household earned about twice as much from marketings from the private plot as from its work on collective land.By the late 1930s market gardening,with the private plot as its base,was perhaps becoming the dominant part of agriculture in the Black-Sea hinterland and the truck-gardening areas around big cities like Moscow and Leningrad.Fearing that this would eat into their profits the government,alarmed by this resurgence of private capitalism,passed legislation to contain it in 1939,but it continued to play an important role in agriculture right up until the end of the Cold War in 1989 well after the deaths of Stalin and Lenin etc.Even though the NEPmen were abolished in 1931 under Stalin people still were allowed to sell produce from home farms on commercial markets for profit as private businesses well after 1990 after the Fall of the Berlin Wall.Other private businesses existed well after the dissolution of the NEPmen outside of the household plot.The household plots are still present in Russia after the NEP men were shut down and continue to have a significant percentage control of the Russian economy and agricultural sector.The purpose of the household farms started in the Czarist era was to ensure that each home could become self sufficient and feed itself should a drought or bad weather occur or if those managed by the monarchs at the time were not enough and during Lenin’s adminstration it was supported by bailouts and guaranteed markets with him also setting up new private farms to increase productivity in order to balance the economy.The NEPmen were extra private business that were set up by the state in order to keep other private enterprises especially these private farms afloat outside of the government so that the government although providing guaranteed markets was not the only individuals that people could sell their surplus to thus would alleviate economic strains on the state and allow for their to be a second group of private individuals who were private businesses to keep these private farmers afloat in order to ensure they stayed afloat while at the same time ensure that the state would not be the only buyer of agricultural produce thus saving the state money thus the more NEPmen they were the more they could provide guarantee markets to private farmers etc and the more new money they created from scratch and thus this allowed the state to save the money it would otherwise spend in private farmers to be spent on infrastructure etc.The state set up the NEPmen that we’re private businessmen so that the NEPmen could provide guaranteed markets to other private businesses especially private farms through new money created from scratch which would end up in the treasury via state control gateway theory that would also be added to the economy and the state would no longer have to do this and the money the state normally spent on this could be spent on infrastructure etc.These NEPmen were thus by all legal definitions private enterprises who bought goods from existing private enterprises and them sold them to other private enterprises and private individuals at sometimes lower or higher prices of to international markets thus acting as a middle man.Thus the state by setting up NEPmen could use money it didn’t spend on guaranteed markets for private businesses to pay more for infrastructure and social programmes and ensure private enterprises had other guarenteed markets and thus through state control gateway control theory could create new money from scratch to add to the economy that would end up in the hands of the state treasury.The NEP men created new money from scratch especially from private banks to add to the state treasury via state control gateway theory.Before the October Revolution these private farms in homes were propped up by  the Czar in order to prevent famine with the Russian state after 1917 making it law that private farms were set up in all rural homes in more homes by Lenin and Stalin  in order to prevent famine.Stalin did eliminate the NEPmen by 1931 but private farmers and markets for them where they made profits remained until the very end of Soviet Russia with them continuously making profits of them during the entirety of Soviet Russia.These private farmers that were by all legal definitions capitalist enterprises still sold surplus on markets to other citizens outside of the NEPmen on private markets including illegal black markets to make a profit.Stalin despite his wishes to fully eliminate capitalism from Soviet Russia knew that it was impossible to eliminate private farmers and other private enterprise as it would been economic and literal suicide.So as a result capitalist enterprises in the form of private farmers and other private businesses lasted up throughout the Stalin era and throughout the rest of the entirety of Soviet Russia.Other private enterprises such as restaurants,retail,artisans,shoemakers,dressmakers etc existed right throughout the Lenin,Stalin adminstration and afternoon them right up until the fall of the Berlin Wall.Put simply the use of private land and property to allow individuals make a profit through private farms was so successful that even the government that allowed in the first place began to crack down on it as it was afraid that their state capitalist monopoly would be overthrown by a capitalist revolution involving not just farmers but also others wanting to start private capitalist enterprises in the “commanding heights” and all areas of the economy that the state had a monopoly in.It is true that under Stalin he wanted to collectivise all agriculture the main reasons for famines that occurred during his and Lenin’s were each caused by a collection of different factors mainly bad weather such as droughts,the effect of fighting against the Nazis and the western powers and also corruption within the government but this had more to do with their allocation of crops produced to the rural areas and urban areas as well as exporting with the fact that farms were collectivised had nothing to do with the famines.In fact some famines were even caused by greedy private landowners and farmers themselves who refused to hand over their grain to be sold and distributed to the masses purposefully hoarding grain in their sheds and homes and also killing livestock early before they were mature enough to create milk and enough meat to feed people or just didn’t slaughter them at all to prevent the state gaining control of their farms through crackdowns caused by farmers becoming too wealthy and greedy and in protest against the state not allowing other areas of the economy to be privatised which led to food scarcity leading to deaths that could therefore be not attributed to the either the state and Stalin and thus attributed to capitalists.Even though the crops etc from private farms was more than enough to feed those in rural areas to keep them well fed thus preventing food shortages and famine and the farmers were wealthy enough to be brought out of poverty and support the economy well enough by buying produce from state owned enterprises the private farmers got greedy and wanted to expand selling produce into urban areas which would have not only eaten into the states profits but also created further imbalances in the economy similar to the Scissor Crises thus throwing the entire economy into chaos affecting all sectors of the economy including agriculture itself causing  hyperinflation and boom and bust cycles that would led to those becoming poor and also mass starvation meaning the state has to intervene as it would have put the entire economy including that of the agricultural sector into chaos.Other private farmers purposefully hijacked collectivised farms by slaughtering the horses they needed to plough fields thus leading to famines.Any crackdowns on private farms that were done on private farms were done primarily to greedy private farmers who wanted to expand into territories that were under the jurisdiction of the state that would eat into its profits and also create imbalances in the economy such as boom and bust cycles similar to the Scissor Crisis – thus the state had to crackdown or else it could cause boom and bust cycles and thus lead to mass starvation.Thus some famines were attributed not only to bad weather out of the control of the state but also due to greedy capitalist farmers.After Stalin had fully collectivised farming in most of the country agricultural productivity increased with areas that private farming was still allowed and flourished were the least hardest hit from where famines were their worst due to the utilisation of private farms with the private farms and household plots allowed to thrive to negate the worst effects of famines particularly in case of shortcomings and corruption in the government.Even though some private household farms did fail due to poor weather etc others did not and thus we’re able to keep people alive by neighbours who created surplus selling them to them through  at often times illegal black markets for profit.People through selling surplus crops were thus able to save enough money to them buy crops from neighbours and state run farms when their own crops failed.The more private farms existed the more crops survived droughts and thus the more people could buy to eat and the more people could sell to make money with acting as a backup to state farms to ensure that if state farms failed due to drought then there was always enough to survive to feed everyone.Food shortages occurred but because of private farm plots they did not result in famine.They were set up in Czar Russia for the same reason as before 1917 only a few private farms existed but after 1917 Lenin introduced laws to make them mandatory to all rural residents and in some cases urban residents who set up there own farms.This is why these farms were propped up and maintained by Lenin,Stalin and all succeeding administrations in Soviet Russia and why every homeowner in rural areas were required by law to have private farms.If state farms failed due to or weather and are not enough to feed everyone  and one or more persons private farms crops failed for whatever reason then there was still other people’s farms that would not have failed and thus they could sell surplus.These were set up to ensure that there was always more plots of crops that successfully survived bad weather and droughts and thus ensured that there was enough food to prevent famines and lessen food shortages as of all homeowners are by law made to become private farmers then overall there would be enough food available should droughts lead to food shortages to stave off famines.They were made legal private enterprises to incentivise private citizens to work on them as they could grow any crops and rear any livestock they wanted to make them self sufficient and were allowed to sell the surplus for profit rather than working for state farms.This was was done to give the private farmers extra disposable income when sold on markets to buy more goods from the state and also done to add new money to the economy as the money made through profit was used to buy goods from other private enterprises and the state.This system was implemented in Maoist China after the Great Chinese Famine.These private farms run by private individuals in Soviet Russia were by all legal definitions private enterprises as the farmers were able to choose what crops and livestock to grow and rear and were allowed to sell them to anyone they wanted to gain profits and earn extra disposable income that they were allowed to keep themselves with the land used to grow them being private property that they owned that was on the land of their homes.Other private enterprises existed in the form of artisans,restaurants and retail etc.Even though the government stated that private business were illegal you could exist as a de-facto private business – a shoemaker, a knife-sharpener, empty alcohol bottles collector, a woman making bespoke suits at home.They were allowed to generate profits and employ only themselves and not others – a person could set up a private enterprise and sell goods and services  for a profit kept for themselves but they were not allowed to hire anyone to do the work as this was seen as exploitation and was meant to keep them handicapped that is all work and labour was to be done by the actual entrepreneur themselves and not hired staff that was the illegal and were kept to the side to pick up the slack prevent them expanding their territories that is since only the entrepreneurs themselves were the only worker they thus could not own multiple buildings or franchisees of a business as this would prevent them hiring people.It would also mean private enterprises of the same type would have competitors.In some cases they were allowed to hire family members to help out but that was as far as it went.The benefit was that at least the entrepreneur themselves were allowed to keep 100% of the profits.Loopholes could exist wherein the private business could hire only members of ones family in family run private  businesses as labour as it was allowed due to it being a collaborative effort within a family and that technically work done by members of families was not exploitation as it was run by the family collectively and handed down from one generation to the next.All of these private farms in Soviet Russia and other businesses such as the NEPmen and also shoemakers etc were by all legal definitions private enterprises as private individuals reared crops and livestock and provided goods and services of their choice and then sold them for profits that they kept for themselves which increased their disposable income.The laws were to prevent exploitation but also to keep them under control as by preventing them hiring people prevented them expanding through franchising and getting too powerful as this would require them hiring people therefore keeping people from being hired kept business small single person and family run one’s.Russia did also have the kulaks who were private farmers who were instead of working their asses off hired others to do their work.They we’re targeted because they sat on their assess on day long and treated their Workers especially bad.They were imprisoned and executed specifically because they broke these rules and used hired workers to do all the work for them.This also occurred in Maoist China etc and is why most people who lived through the era are unaware they were private enterprises present.These businesses which lasted throughout the administrations of Lenin and Stalin were by all legal definition private enterprises which is not allowed in either communism or socialism either the real or bullshit definition.The government both Lenin and Stalin propped these private farm business up and kept them afloat by bailouts  and guaranteed markets which again cannot occur in either socialism and communism both the bullshit or proper definition it can only occur within state capitalism.Other private businesses existed such as private  restaurants,retailers etc.Soviet Russia cannot be considered socialist or communist since not all of the sectors of society were run for profit by the state that had centralised planning of the economy as their were  private industries that were run for profit which is not how socialism or communism works.This is by definition private enterprises which is not allowed in either communism or socialism either the real or bullshit definition.The government propped these private business up and kept them afloat by bailouts  and guaranteed markets which again cannot occur in either socialism and communism both the bullshit or proper definition it can only occur within state capitalism.Simply put even though the vast majority of large farms were collectivised state run farms at the same private farms were allowed to function in order to prevent starvation should another drought induced famine occur under Stalin as he although he favoured  collectivising all farms he wanted to keep in these private farms running as this increased productivity and thus allowed private farms to function to ensure food security should another famine occur.The state run collectivised  farms were used to feed mainly the urbanised areas such as cities thus leaving the rural communities prone to starvation especially should poor weather occur as they were left with very little due to the imbalances in population density with rural areas surviving on scraps of these and primarily on crops reared in private plots of land thus the majority of food eaten by those in rural areas was from private farms.The urban centres got the most food because they were more densly populated than rural areas and thus rural areas were left with scraps and thus were more prone to famines and thus required private farms.Famines and food shortages that occurred were due to not just the weather but also the population demographics and the need to keep the urban areas fed as they were involved in the most important and labour intensive work for the state and private sectors of the economy.Thus were was a tendency to have the majority of not all food produced on state run farms sent to urban centres.State run farms were feeding urban centres while this left the rural areas with nothing so as a result private farms were set up and maintained through guaranteed markets and bailouts to feed rural areas as they were the most prone to famine due to state run farms feeding urban areas with this because those living urban areas worked the important and labour intensive jobs such as construction,banking and in factories and so they were kept fed using the large yields from state run farms and in the time of crop losses caused by bad weather were compensated by private farmers allowed to sell surplus in markets within large cities with them alongside this feeding rural towns and villages.The private farmers were set up and kept afloat to feed primarily rural areas and feed cities when bad weather affected crop yields.Keeping private farming and other private business afloat by providing guaranteed markets and bailouts etc even though they ate into the states profits was pivotal in keeping the economy thriving but also preventing famines occurring and even if they did occur at least lessening the intensity of them.Thus state run farms fed densely populated urban areas while private farms fed rural communities to prevent famines.Food shortages did occur throughout the later half of the Soviet Union after 1947 but through the utilisation of private farms,guaranteed marksts and bailouts that there intensity were significantly lower and less severe in the rural communities which were prone to being affected the most and this did prevented them from descending into famines this is because private farmers were in charge of feeding primarily the rural communities as opposed to the urban centres.These food shortages in the later half of the Soviet Union were always due to the weather which was outside of the governments control alongside greedy private farmers creating artificial scarcity by slaughtering animals early and the state went out of its way to prevent them through importing food from other countries and allowing private farms to flourish.Had the economy been completely deregulated then boom and bust cycles would have caused havoc and lead to skyrocketing food prices with regards to the price of grain meaning the economy had to regulated to the extent that it was.Had private farming being abolished then the economic growth would have been lower and the death toll from the famines been much higher.As a result both Lenin and Stalin did whatever it took to ensure that private industries and especially farming and the NEPmen was retained with them likely only deriding them in person as to look like ”socialists and communists” as it ensured economic and social stability and thus went out of their way to preserve private businesses but keep them tightly regulated.This is why even though they said in person they would crack down on them they never really did actually carry out any real crackdowns.Even Stalin who was more authoritarian than Lenin and wanted complete state control of the economy who even shut down the NEPmen kept private farms afloat because they were necessary in preventing famines or lessening them.They were given bailouts if they fell into economic trouble and guaranteed markets to ensure they stayed afloat as if they went bankrupt,out of business then the economy would have crashed and people would have died due to starvation.Shutting down all private industries would have been economic and political suicide as it would have led to much higher death tolls in future harsher famines and less economic growth than there was.Yes there were food shortages and  even famines after the the worst initial ones of the early years of the Soviet Union but the death toll were substantially lower and would have been much higher and economic growth would have been stagnant had the private farms been completely discarded.These food shortages and famines had almost always had to do with the climate of Soviet Russia,pests and other geopolitical and environmental factors outside of the states control.Initial famines were caused by mismanagement,corruption and poor weather before the legalisation of private farmers with private farmers legalised in order to prevent any future famines or alleviate their intensity and increase productivity and feed rural populations that were the worst at risk of them.Like Mao both Lenin and Stalin realised that to prevent future famines private farmers needed to be supported and even propped up by the state and were necessary to prevrmt future famines.The last famine in Russia actually occurred in 1947 under the Stalin as a cumulative effect of consequences of failed collectivised farming brought on by private farmers comprising them,war damage and the severe drought.Most famines and food shortages that did occur were caused by poor weather that was beyond the control of the state and would have occurred in a free market system with the existence of private farmers ensured that any death tolls that occurred were substantially lower than if they did not exist meaning private farmers ensured that death tolls of succeeding famines were low especially in the rural areas with other famines even caused by private capitalist farmers purposely witholding grain and slaughtering animals earlier than normal in protest against the government thus creating artificial food scarcity that was thus caused by capitalism and not socialism and communism.Had private farmers not existed then the death tolls of famines would have been in the tens of millions each year rather than a few thousand or few hundred thus the state went out of its way to ensure they stayed afloat through bailouts and guarenteed markets alongside importing food.Thus private enterprises especially private farmers were allowed to flourish in order to lower the severity of any famines that did occur with them used to feed primarily rural communities that are the most prone to famines due to the collectivised farms feeding urban centres.Thus the existence of private farmers was thus allowed and encouraged and ensured through guarenteed markets and bailouts to prevent severe death tolls during famines.Private business were encouraged to flourish but were regulated to prevent them getting too powerful.Furthermore they needed private farmers and businessmen to sell more products in order to earn more disposable income for themselves and their workers  to buy more products from state owned enterprises to stimulate the economy.Thus the state had to go out of its way to keep private farms and businesses running and existing in the first place by encouraging them to be set up but regulated them to prevent them getting too big and powerful that they would become a threat to the state run business.Private enterprises were allowed to flourish in Leninist and Stalinist Russia and in particular adminstrations under Khrushchev and other succeeding administrations because they were key to the growth of the economy and preventing famines just like Maoist China and were key to developing the economy.Shutting down all private enterprises would have both economic and political suicide and would have led to further deaths from famines with them bailed out when they were in trouble and they were given guaranteed markets to ensure economic survival and that they stayed afloat at all times.This was because private enterprises were key to ensuring economic growth and prevent famines in Soviet Russia from start to finish.Lenins communist and socialist revolution was a failure because he purposefully set up the NEPmen,private farms and other private businessmen and Stalins revolution was a failure because he although shut down the NEPmen he allowed private farms and other enterprises to flourish.The fact that the NEPmen existed under Lenin and Stalin abolished them after Lenin died showed that Lenin’s administration west not communist or socialist and the fact that Stalin was attempting to carry out a purge in the remaining capitalist enterprises after he and Lenin were in power for 36 years shows that the “communist” and “socialist “ revolution of both Lenin and Stalin were in fact failures because after 36 years in power capitalist enterprises still existed – if they were successful then capitalism would have been purged within the first few years.They had 36 years wherein they were in control of the economy,society and media with unrestricted power to eliminate all capitalist enterprises with a whims notice and yet they did not do that and the fact that Stalin had to carry out a final purge on capitalism at the end of his life like Mao after he and Lenin were in power for 36 years in the first place shows that their “communist” and “socialist” revolutions were a failure in every successive administrations revolutions were failures as private enterprises continued to flourish through the remaining years of the Soviet Union.The fact that the whole purpose of the final purge of capitalism that lasted during the last ten years of Stalins life which was unsuccessful was to eliminate the very last vestiges of capitalism including private businesses from Soviet Russia thus means that during the entire 36 years of both Lenin’s and Stalins reign wherein they had complete control of all of society such as the media,government and economy private enterprises existed because they were set up by him in the first place and let flourish in order to pick up the slack and also create new money from scratch that was to be added to the economy and then through state control gateway theory was needed to fund the state owned businesses etc.If it was a communist cor socialist country then it was a pretty unsuccessful one altogether.Therefore using actual logic Soviet Russia was neither socialist or communist it was state capitalist since by using actual logic because private enterprises lasted during the entirety of Lenin and Stalins entire 36 years in power and required the final purge of capitalism shows that there country was not socialist if communist.The fact that Stalin and Lenin after 36 years of unrestricted power had to carry out a final purge of capitalism shows that their socialist or communist revolution was a absolute failure in every sense of the word.Think about this we both liberals and conservatives and libertarians go on about how the government has control over the media etc and infringing in people rights yet the constitution prevents the state gaining complete control but in Soviet Russia the constitution did not exist and other safeguards did not exist.Lenin and Stalin has complete unrestricted control of the economy and society for 36 years without constitutional safeguards and yet after 36 years private enterprises still existed enough so to warrant the final purge which was the states final purge of capitalist enterprises therefore Soviet Russia was neither socialist or communist it was state capitalist.Both Stalin and Lenin are seen as the poster children for the entirety of the state capitalist Russia but in reality once they both died Nikita Khrushchev began to undo all of their most horrible human rights abuses with for example all citizens imprisoned in the gulags were released and the powers of the KGB laxed significantly.By the end of 1955,thousands of political prisoners had returned home and told their experiences of the Gulag labour camps.Continuing investigation into the abuses brought home the full breadth of Stalin’s crimes to his successors.The vast majority of Russian politicians demonised both Stalin and Lenin for the savages that they well and truly were with  Khruschev etc painting them a national shame and stain on the history of Russia.Khrushchev believed that once the stain of Stalinism was removed, the Party would inspire loyalty among the people.Beginning in October 1955, Khrushchev fought to tell the delegates to the upcoming 20th Party Congress Stalin’s crimes.Some of his colleagues,including Molotov and Malenkov,opposed the disclosure and managed to persuade him to make his remarks in a closed session.Both Stalin and Lenin were considered national embarrassments and shames by all successive adminstrations and efforts were made to undo all of their crimes and power with Khrushchev spearheading the destalinisation of Russia.The level of political and economic freedom Soviet citizens had after Stalin’s death waxed and waned in each adminstrations it was certainly better than under Stalin with Khrushchev being the best who made geniune efforts to increase agricultural output by investing heavily in research in both mechanisation and also varieties of seed that actually did increase yields over the coming adminstrations with him sending researchers to Europe and the rest of the world to reverse engineer machinery to improve crop yields and investigate new seed varieties and fertiliser etc to improve yields such as more drought resistant varieties having learned from the famines of the Lenin and Stalin years.Any food shortages and thus food and bread lines that did occur in post Stalin Russia were always the results of drought and again greedy private farmers that was beyond the control of the government that could easily have occurred in a less regulated capitalist country with the state always doing everything it could to lessen them such as importing grain from other countries even at a loss with private farmers also allowed to continue to alleviate shortages – had private farmers been eliminated its likely that these food shortages would have led to famine and mass death by starvation hence why although the state made efforts to eliminate or stunt the growth of private farmers in 1939 they were still needed especially during and after the Khrushchev administration until the fall of the Berlin Wall and is it prevented the country falling in to the same famine experience by Maoist China and to an extent Leninist and Stalinist Russia.Private farmers is what prevented post Stalinist Russia from collapsing into famine alongside the intensive agricultural research spearheaded by Khrushchev with Khrushchev learning this from the adoptions of private farmers from Mao Zedong and from Lenin and Stalin.The interrelationships between Maoist China and Soviet Russia can be seen in their intensive research into agricultural research to prevent more famines and learning from each other’s mistakes to prevent famines,civil unrest and keep private enterprises under tight regulation.Government planning,intervention,programmes in Soviet Russia is what prevent famines.The Koysigen Reforms of 1965 and Food Programme in 1982 which increased grain productivity after shortfalls that were caused by droughts and other climatic factors.It also possible that the policies of Leonid Brezhnev whose administration was marked by rapidly growing technological gaps from the west ,corruption inefficiency,economic stagnation played a factor.So you see government intervention is what actually increased agricultural productivity in 1965 and 1982 not capitalism.Government intervention was what was responsible for the countries infrastructure etc improving after Stalin because due to command economies they now had enough money to afford the infrastructure and technology.The dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 and thus adoption of a deregulated capitalist economy by Boris Yeltsin allowing for the adoption of a completely deregulated free market economy with little or no government planning led to a decade long exponentional decrease in food production and a decade long decrease in the Russia economy GDP and exponential increase in hyperinflation with it only due to state intervention in the early 2000s that grain production and the economy began to exponentially increase again.Yeltsin transformed Russia’s command economy into a capitalist market economy by implementing economic shock therapy,market exchange of the rubble,nationwide privatisation and lifting of price controls.Economic volatility and inflation ensued.Amid the economic shift, a small number of oligarchs obtained a majority of the national property and wealth,while international monopolies came to dominate the market.As a direct result grain production dropped sharply and exponentially thus leading to food shortages.Corrupt and haphazard privatisation processes turned over major state-owned firms to politically connected “oligarchs”which has left equity ownership highly concentrated.Yeltsin’s program of radical, market-oriented reform came to be known as a “shock therapy” It was based on the policies associated with the Washington Consensus recommendations of the IMF and a group of top American economists, including Larry Summers.With deep corruption afflicting the process, the result was disastrous, with real GDP falling by more than 40% by 1999,hyperinflation which wiped out personal savings, crime and destitution spreading rapidly.The jump in prices from shock therapy wiped out the modest savings accumulated by low to middle class Russians under socialism and resulted in a regressive redistribution of wealth in favor of elites who owned non-monetary assets.Shock therapy was accompanied by a drop in the standard of living, including surging economic inequality and poverty,along with increased excess mortality and a decline in life expectancy.Russia suffered the largest peacetime rise in mortality ever experienced by an industrialized country.Likewise, the consumption of meat decreased: in 1990, an average citizen of the RSFSR consumed 63 kg of meat a year; by 1999, it had decreased to 45 kg.The majority of state enterprises were privatized amid great controversy and subsequently came to be owned by insiders for far less than they were worth.For example, the director of a factory during the Soviet regime would often become the owner of the same enterprise.Under the government’s cover, outrageous financial manipulations were performed that enriched a narrow group of individuals at key positions of business and government.Many of them promptly invested their newfound wealth abroad,producing an enormous capital flight.This rapid privatisation of public assets, and the widespread corruption associated with it, became widely known throughout Russia as “prikhvatizatisiya,” or “grab-itization.”This is where poor of middle class people lost all of assets and rich wealthy people stole it from them making them obscenely wealthy and leaving everyone else poor.They  invested money they stole from the poor abroad and them became multi-billionaire.Following the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991 and massive deregulation and massive privatisation caused by Boris Yeltsin both large collective and state farms – the backbone of Soviet Agriculture – had to contend with the sudden loss of state-guaranteed marketing and supply channels and a changing legal environment that created pressure for reorganization and restructuring.In less than ten years,livestock,inventories declined by half, pulling down demand for feed grains, and the area planted to grains dropped by 25%.The use of mineral fertiliser and other purchased inputs plummeted, driving yields down.Most farms could no longer afford to purchase new machinery and other capital investments.This led to an exponentional decrease in agricultural output across the country and led to massive food shortages and bread lines that in the fact the worst in the countries history especially for a country that has had to deal with famine and food shortages due to drought etc with experts claiming the the county was on the verge of famine.These food shortages caused by unregulated capitalism and not socialism because the effects of privatisation and deregulation led to farmers unable to produce enough food to sell and thus you had food shortages and breadlines and was the fault capitalism led to mass starvation on par with that in Venezuela in the 2010s also caused by runaway capitalism.This was a sharp decline in GDP,hyperinflation and food shortages leading to bread lines where people were lining up in long queues for food in post-Soviet Russia in levels that had never been seen since the last famine in 1947 and were caused solely by Boris Yeltsin deregulating the country to fully embrace deregulated capitalism especially unregulated free market capitalism when there were no corresponding droughts that caused these effects is clear enough evidence that Russia cannot operatee a completely unregulated,un planned free market economy – it needs government regulation and command or even planned economies to prevent hyperinflation,boom and bust cycles and ensure stable food prices and prevent famines and food shortages and more imports increased in poverty.It resulted In Russia importing more food and exporting less and this exacerbated the decline in GDP.This also meant it could not export cheap food to scuba that suffered its own food shortages in the 1990s and could not aid North Korea with food aid during its famine in the 1990s.The country also needs the government’s state capitalist guaranteed markets to ensure the economic survival of private,collective and state run farms.The country that had eliminated famines for the first time in 1947 was again due to deregulation of the economy on the verge famines having more to do with hyperinflation caused by deregulation than drought.This is clear evidence that some countries just cannot have a deregulated economy they need government intervention using either command or planned economies.Complete deregulation with zero reorganisation of the economy especially in agriculture is what led to extensive food shortages and drops in agricultural productivity.It was deregulation and free market capitalism that caused an exponential increase in poverty,bread lines,food shortages and exponential decrease in agricultural productivity with this event known as Black October led to the dissolution of all remaining democratic safeguards in Russia wherein Yeltsin secured unrestricted control of the economy under the guise of a conservative capitalist government and set the ground work for all of the issues we have with Vladamir Putin and Ukraine,Crimea etc in 2022 and its why you have pictures of Boris Yeltsin holding hands and smiling with George Bush Sr of all people – you know that war criminal who son is also a war criminal in front of the White House snd other places.Just days after the dissolution of the Soviet Union,Yeltsin resolved to embark on a programme of radical economic reform.Improving on Gorbachev’s reforms, which sought to expand democracy in the socialist system, the new regime aimed to completely dismantle socialism and fully implement capitalism especially unregulated free market,converting the world’s largest command economy into a free-market one.During early discussions of this transition, Yeltsin’s advisers debated issues of speed and sequencing, with an apparent division between those favoring a rapid approach and those favoring a gradual or slower approach.On 2 January 1992, Yeltsin, acting as his own role minister ordered the liberalisation of foreign trade,prices and currency.At the same time,Yeltsin followed a policy of “macroeconomic stabilisation”, a harsh austerity regime designed to control inflation.Under Yeltsin’s stabilisation programme,interest rates were raised to extremely high levels to tighten money and restrict credit.To bring state spending and revenues into balance,Yeltsin raised new taxes heavily especially on the poor, cut back sharply on government subsidies to industry and construction,and made steep cuts to state welfare spending aimed at the poor.In early 1992, prices skyrocketed throughout Russia especially food prices, and a deep credit crunch shut down many industries and brought about a protracted depression.The reforms devastated the living standards of much of the population,especially the groups dependent on Soviet-era state subsidies and welfare programs namely the poor and middle and lower classes.Through the 1990s, Russia’s GDP fell by 50%,vast sectors of the economy were wiped out, inequality and unemployment grew dramatically, whilst incomes fell.Hyperinflation caused by the Central Bank of Russias loose monetary policy, wiped out many people’s personal savings, and tens of millions of Russia were plunged into poverty.Some economists argue that in the 1990s,Russia suffered an economic downturn more severe than the United States or Germany had undergone six decades earlier in the 1929 Great Depression.Russian commentators and even some Western economists, such as Marshall Goldman widely blamed Yeltsin’s economic programme of massive deregulation for the country’s disastrous economic performance in the 1990s.Hyperinflation skyrocketed by about 2,600% people could not buy any food or anything because of skyrocketing food prices and thus you had people forming long queues for food and at the same time shelves were empty because agricultural productivity plummeted.People were forming long queues for food that did not exist because deregulation led  to the agricultural sector collapsing in on itself..Many politicians began to quickly distance themselves from the programme.In February 1992, Russia’s Vice President Alexander Rutskoy denounced the Yeltsin programme of complete deregulation and adoption of free market principles as “economic genocide.”By 1993, conflict over the reform direction escalated between Yeltsin on the one side, and the opposition to radical economic reform in Russia’s parliament on the other.Nearly 70 years of hard work by Lenin,Stalin and in particular Khruschev was wiped out in an instant by Yeltsin all to cater to the free market system and make the 1% even wealthier and the country is still recovering today more than 30 years later despite an exponential increase in agricultural productivity.Poverty was dropping prior to 1991 at a steady exponential rate and was probably going to be eliminated completely by now but due to this deregulation by Yeltsin it rose again in 1991 and spiked in 2000 with it only due to  the reforms and government programmes and intervention of Putin was what led to to steadily dropping during the last 20 years.Poverty is still significant in Russia and possibly it could have been eliminated by now had Yeltsin’s reforms not been introduced and had a planned economy been adopted like China.Therefore deregulation and adoption of free market policies in 1991 in post Soviet Russia  is the reason that poverty still persists in Russia and was responsible for one one of the worst economic recessions in one country for decades.GDP growth and poverty reduction was stagnant for decades in Russia compareable to  Czarist Russia prior to the October Revolution of 1917 with once Lenin and Stalins etc command economies were put into effect GDP then rose exponentially and poverty decreased exponentially every year from 1917-1980 with poverty reduction and GDP peaking in the late 1980s until of course a sharp dip in GDP and sharp rise in poverty in 1990s due to this and due to the reforms of Putin GDP  began rising again and poverty began lowering except for another dip in 2007/2008 due to the global recession and then GDP began rising and poverty lowering  ever since yet it still has to reach the peak of GDP growth and poverty reduction just before the 1990s.Deregulation and adoption of free market capitalism in 1991 in post Soviet Russia thus led to hyperinflation,skyrocketing food prices,an exponential decrease in agricultural productivity,food shortages and bread lines and millions of Russian citizens who were just rising out poverty due to the exponential growth increase in wages etc from the reforms of Khruschev and due to command economies to be then dragged back into poverty all to benefit the top wealthy elite 1%.This exponential decline in agricultural productivity and increase of poverty that resulted in constant bread lines etc created by adoption of free market capitalism lasted nearly over 15-30 years with agricultural productivity only returning to 1990 levels in 2019 and the economy fully recovering to pre 1991 levels in between 2006 – 2011 meaning it took agricultural productivity nearly 30 years to recover and nearly 15-20 years for the economy and the path to end poverty to recover – that’s how bad it was.It was like the Russia economy entered into its own localised Great Depression by eliminating regulation and command econoies.Comand economies and government regulations which protected it from the 1929 Great Depression which when removed in favour free market capitalism led to an exponentially loss in agricultural productivity that took it 30 years to return its former exponential growth and 15-20 years for it to repair its economy..Runaway capitalism is what caused this not socialism.GDP and wages  in Soviet Russia was climbing high exponentially from 1917-1990 with only a few slumps coinciding with major famines.Then of course in 1991 GDP and wages took a major slump which it took 10 years to start rising again and thus had been rising ever since but has not reached the 1990 peak yet.Recessions occurred in 2007/2008 due to the Great Recession with the economy picking up again until 2015 coinciding with the oil crash and economic sanctions due to his actions in Ukraine and another dip again 2020 due to the Coronavirus and economic sanctions in response to Ukraine.Poverty was being reduced at a steady rate in Soviet Russia which became exponentially better during the Khruschev years of 1950 onwards and Since 1950 agricultural productivity was going upwards exponentially every year from 1917 to 1991 then in 1990 it peaked and after free market reforms in 1991 it declines exponentially and would take 30 years after a decade long slump and 20 years of reforms under Putin to completely recover.Had the reforms never taken place it would have been continuously going upwards for the last 30 years.Poverty reduction in Russia was declining exponentionally up until 1991 and due to deregulation it then it skyrocketed and went up and down until only about 2000-2010 due to Putins reforms.Same goes for agricultural productivity but reverse it was rising exponentionally then in 1991 occurred and the agricultural productivity dropped for nearly 30 years.This disastrous economic policy and him starting the First Chechen War which included him committing war crimes and genocide which was resolved in 1997 but then he started a second war in 1999 that included him committing even more war crimes and genocide and is why he had a meagre 2% approval rating when he left office.At the time the majority of the remaining leaders of the Soviet Union were in charge of the government including the Russian parliament were already transitioning to a more free market economy but they were aiming to adopt one that utilised a planned economy rather than a command economy.In otherwards they were aiming to adopt a free market economy with government planning similar to the one adopted by modern China at the time and today that is increased privatisation of different sectors of the economy but at the same time one that was still dominated by state control and planning to allow private enterprises to exist and news ones be set up all the time but still have government regulations to protect the workers and ensure stable exponential growth in the economy to ensure Russia even after the fall of the Soviet Union could become an economic superpower which is what Mikhail Gorbachev was aiming for not the completely deregulated economy Yeltsin adopted.Had this been adopted then its possible Russia would still have more private corporations in control of the economy but the economic transition would have been more stable without hyperinflation,massive rises in poverty and less billionaires forming by doing nothing in otherwards like modern day China.At the same time the drop in poverty would have continued to drop exponentially.This led to a huge political divide between the parliament and Yeltsin who carried out an unconstitutional coup that was to create a free market capitalist Russia similar to the ones espoused by libertarians and anarcho capitalists with zero democratic institutions created solely for him and his billionaire buddies which in a sign of a big fuck you to the Russian government and the democratic reforms installed by Khruschev and Gorbachev culminated in him bombing the Russian parliament building using a big tank.His illegal coup in the name of the free market system that led to the rise of a tyrannical dictator himself  was done in the name of the free market system something which libertarians and anarcho both want and deride at the same time – oh and by the way was exactly the same as the 2021 coup carried by Trump.This why libertarians and anarcho capitalists suffer from cognitive dissonance.All in the name of free market capitalism Yeltsin caused a huge spike in poverty and carried out an illegal coup on par with those carried out by America with you having George Bush Sr the embodiment of capitalism holding hands with him in the White House cheering him on as he quashed what little democratic institutions existed.It was done in a way and orchestrated by Yeltsin to prevent the agricultural sector adapting and in turn prevent the planned economy stabilising and cause the correct imbalances that did occur so that Boris Yeltsin and all of his buddies could seize the assets of the vast majority of the working class population and then become multi billionaires overnight.In otherwards Yeltsin specifically modified the free market reforms put forward by Gorbachev so that it would result in the agricultural sector collapsing,hyperinflation ensuing and that all assets owned by the majority of Russians and the state could be through legal means seized by him and all of his buddies thus making him and all of his buddies billionaires.The economic collapse of the 1990s in post Soviet Russia which was the result of massive deregulation and adoption of free market principles was  carefully planned exercise by Yeltsin to steal billions of dollars from the poor as well as middle class and give it to the wealthy making them even more obscenely wealthy.He modified the reforms of a Gorbachev to ensure that what happened did happen – that deregulation led to hyperinflation and in turn a drop in agricultural productivity and increase in poverty and that all the money from this confusion would be seized by him and billionaire buddies.This is free market capitalism especially that espoused by Ayn Rand at its finest.This is not socialism or communism and if you think otherwise you’re a fucking idiot.The wealthy stealing from the poor and getting wealthy from the rest of society and leaving the majority of people poor is the sort of idiotic nonsense espoused by Ayn Rand and her idiots just Coronavirus,2008 and 2020.Furthermore at the same time the entire Soviet Union was undergoing its breakup wherein the Eastern Bloc etc were becoming new Independent nations even though polls showed that the majority of Russians and citizens of Ukraine and the Eastern bloc wanting to remain in the USSR.Gorbachev was not successful in transitioning Russia to a more market orientated but his other reforms were successful which was to install freedom of speech and freedom of press.Although Russia today does not have the most unbiased live news stations it is far better than what it was or could have been if were not for the reforms pushed forward by Gorbachev.That and him playing a role in ending in the Cold War and this any chance of mutual assured nuclear annihilation is why even Americans were showing signs of respect to Mikhail Gorbachev upon news of his death.Gorbachev is considered the most liberal and democratic of the leaders of Soviet a Russia as he was instrumental in developing democratic reforms and free speech reforms that are still present today.Even though Russia is not known for its freedom of speech the level of freedom of speech is much better than what it could have been if Gorbachev never came to power and implemented them.Gorbachev’s negotiations with the U.S. helped bring an end to the Cold War and reduced the threat of nuclear conflict.His decision to allow the Eastern Bloc to break apart prevented significant bloodshed in Central and Eastern Europe; as William Taubman noted, this meant that the “Soviet Empire” ended in a far more peaceful manner than the British Empire several decades before.Similarly, under Gorbachev, the Soviet Union broke apart without falling into civil war, as happened during the breakup of Yugoslavia at the same time.McCauley noted that in facilitating the merger of East and West Germany, Gorbachev was “a co-father of German unification”, assuring him long-term popularity among the German people.Furthermore his proposed reforms should not be blamed as he had to deal with the fact of transitioning a country and the rest of the Soviet Union that comprised of several hundred million people from a command economy to a more planned. market oriented economy which was a difficult task.He was trying to reverse the “era of stagnation” under Leonoid Breshnev that was marked by corruption.The Russian economy needed more privatisation and restructuring in order to expand and develop as per state control gateway theory with the failure of theses a failure due to the outdated economic policies of Brezhnev.The restructuring called “perestroika” was needed as per state control gateway theory could have been more successful and resulted in less economic collapse had the government been more willing to adopt them and give more leeway.Had he chosen more feasible economic plans or was never elected in the first place then Yeltsin still would have carried out the same economic plans that were the exact opposite of this and the same thing would have happened.Russia in the 1980s like China in the 2000s was becoming more stable enough to have a more privatised market economy albeit one still regulated and under control of the state to ensure stable exponentional economic growth with more democratic input from the public alongside his other democratic reforms and was ready to become the same type of economy as China was becoming.That was what’s Gorbachev was trying to create but the rest of the government was against this and Yeltsin seized control of it through an illegal coup and installed his completely unregulated system based in the principles of libertarianism and Ayn Randism.Therefore Yeltsin and not Gorbachev can be blamed.Gorbachev can be somewhat responsible for economic reforms that were detrimental to the economy but these could be blamed on the necessity to introduce much needed free market reforms to increase GDP and economic development as per state control gateway theory that met resistance from the outdated parliament and government but the fact that Yeltsin carried out a coup against Gorbachev and instituted completely deregulated reforms shows that compared to Yeltsin he is the lesser of two evils and the victim of Yeltsin’s illegal coup.Yeltsins actions ended up with him and his buddies becoming multi billionaires while Gorbachev did not gain any money from it being worth only $5 million at the time of his death wheras Yeltsin was worth billions.This fact and the fact that Yeltsin carried out a coup is evident that Gorbachev was not to blame.This disastrous economic policy of Yeltsin led to the rise of the already top wealthy Russians becoming multi billionaires by doing absolutely nothing by taking advantage of the economic collapse with this also creating the current oligarchs in Russia we have today including Vladimir Putin with it also leading indirectly to the current crises in Ukraine as it had a knock on effect on the independence of Ukraine etc.Put simply all of the obscenely wealthy billionaire oligarchs in modern day Russia including Vladamir Putin were created by this mass deregulation for doing nothing but seizing money from the poor.The economic crash led to grabby frenzy wherein the richest of the rich seized the monetary and property assets of all poor and middle class people who were left with nothing and thus formed bread lines and begging in the streets and a large spike in poverty and large decrease in agricultural productivity with the economic system and reforms by default shifting millions of not billions of dollars from the poor the wealthy making the wealthy even more wealthy and the poor even more poor by default.Vladamir Putin is a multi billionaire today because of this economic reforms despite doing everything to reverse this poverty and drop in agricultural productivity.This does not however absolve him of war crimes etc in Ukraine which he will punished for in “that place”.Had Gorbachevs plans been put in place and were successful and Yeltsin never came to power Russia would have eliminated poverty to the same degree as China with it reaching nearly zero percent through a planned economy and state control gateway theory with this also securing Russia as an economic superpower.However due to Yeltsin’s economic reforms this caused GDP,agricultural productivity etc to plummet,caused poverty and hyperinflation and food prices to skyrocket to the point it becoming an economic superpower like China is now gone.The use of a command economy had protected Russia during the 1929 Great Depression with this gone leading to Russia’s chance of being an economic superpower gone forever and it also leading to the current crises in Ukraine.This shows that no country especially Russia even in modern times cannot adopt a completely deregulated economy because of it did then it causes society to collapse in on itself.The use of a command economy had protected Russia from recessions etc with Soviet Russia through the use of a command economy was completely uneffected by the 1929 Great Depression while America and the rest of the world struggled financially and poverty increased exponentially for nearly a decade with the rest of the world left behind picking up the pieces and lagging behind until 1939.All global recessions of the early 20th Century that affected the rest of world left Soviet Russia unscathed with Soviet Russia left completely unaffected by the 1929 Great Depression.Any recessions that did occur in its early history were the result of droughts and coinciding famines that impaired its agricultural productivity and thus exports and also internal sales figures.The hyperinflation and economic crash of the 1990s had a knock on effect on the rest of the communist world that was linked to Russia as this led Russia unable to send economic and food aid to North Korea during its famine of 1995 with it making unable to afford imports etc from Cuba.During its existence, the Soviet Union provided Cuba with large amounts of oil,food, and machinery.In the years following the collapse of the Soviet Union and this deregulation, Cuba’s gross domestic product shrunk 35%, imports and exports both fell over 80%, and many domestic industries shrank considerably.Food and weapon imports stopped or severely slowed.The largest immediate impact was the loss of nearly all of the petroleum from the USSR.Cuba’s oil imports dropped to 10% of pre-1990 amounts.Before this, Cuba had been re-exporting any Soviet petroleum it did not consume to other nations for profit, meaning that petroleum had been Cuba’s second largest export product before 1990.Once the restored Russian Federation was formed it was now firmly capitalist and untrustworthy towards all of its former communist allies across the world including China,North Korea,Cuba etc the government that emerged from the former Soviet Union, its administration immediately made clear that it had no intention of delivering petroleum that had been guaranteed to the island by the USSR; this resulted in a decrease in Cuban consumption by 20% of its previous level within two years.Russians own food shortages caused by Yeltsins reforms led to it unable to export food to the country anymore with this coupled with no cheap oil being exported led to Cuba facing extreme food shortages of its own.This effect of this was severe, with many Cuban industries being unable to run without such petroleum.Entirely dependent on fossil fuels to operate, the major underpinnings of Cuban society—its transport, industrial and agricultural systems—were paralyzed.There were extensive losses of productivity in both Cuban agriculture which was dominated by modern industrial tractors,combined and harvesters all of which required petroleum to run and in Cuban industrial capacity.This led to widespread food shortages in Cuba as there were no cheap food imported from Russia and Cuban farmers could not use mechanical tractors to grow crop to be self sufficient with protests against the government and the lack of cheap oil from Russia led to farmers unable to power machinery to rear food that was already impossible due to its climate etc and people losing their cars which up to that point were commonplace and a shortage of buses with them forced to use horse drawn carriages and camels alongside bicycles.Energy shortages were  rampant in Cuba in the 1900s as a result of the recession in Russia and it becoming primarily capitalism due to fact that Cuba was although had its own reserves of oil it is not a lot compared to the rest of the world still dependent on imports from Russia etc which then led to the countries entire economy and infrastructure collapsing in on itself with US led embargos further worsening things with it leading to protests by citizens affected by this despite the fact it wasn’t the fault of the Cuban government which resulted in the Castro government cracking down in this including leading to the infamous Malenconzo riots and 1994 Rafter Crises.This is what’s known as the Special period.Therefore the famines and food shortages in Cuba during the 1990s that are still being felt today are a direct result of Russia adopting free market capitalism and abandoning trade with Cuba.Furthermore this led to the Special Period resulting in Cubans dissatisfied with the knock on effect that in turn led to riots against against the government and led to 33,000 of Cubans exodus it to America thus all of this was caused by the fact that Russia adopted unregulated free market reforms.The main period where Castro crackdown on civil liberties,where people escaped the country and where food shortages occurred was after the Special Period and this was done because of Russia adopting massive deregulation.This was to end once Hugo Chavez came to power in 1999 as he decided to to send Cuba cheap oil in exchange for cheap doctors from Cuba.The Cuban economy from 1990 – 2000 was wonky with the oil from Venezuela aiding in the economy becoming better.This shift towards capitalism and recession also led to Russia unable and unwilling to send food aid to North Korea during its famine.Furthermore the same economic crash would caused by such deregulation would occur in modern day China and North and South Korea and other countries that need to adopt a command or planned economy.This decade long recession,exponential decrease in agricultural productivity,hyperinflation in 1991 that thus led to skyrocketing food prices and food shortages in both Russia and Cuba etc also caused a ripple effect in China and North Korea as both China and North Korea were unable to import food from Russia leaving North Korea unable to import food and oil during the 1994 famine and thus the majority of the North Korea famine of 1994 can be blamed on the ripple effect of the mass deregulation of Russia in 1991 as it led Russia unable and unwilling to send food aid and affected the ability of Cuba and China to send food aid.This is evidence that there are some countries especially those that adopt command economies such as China,Russia,Korea would face mass starvation and famine etc as a result of hyperinflation etc if the economies were completely deregulated if you don’t understand that your a fucking idiot.Therefore they need to be regulated and adopt planned and command economies.This is the clearest evidence of this especially since there was no drought in the 1990s.There was small droughts in 1995 and 1998 but that was not the cause of these food shortages as there were droughts in 1972,1975,1979,1981 but there were no famines or food shortages from 1947-1991 because improved mechanisation etc that was possible through adopting Soviet style Command economies allowed them to afford to buy the necessary equipment to improve agricultural productivity to the point that famines and food shortages were no longer an issue and the food shortages caused by the adoption of free market principles and deregulation occurred throughout the entirety of 1990s and part of the early to mid 2000s not just in 1995 and 1998.Therefore this proves that both modern Russia and China and even after the time of the Soviet Union Gorbachev and his proposed reforms should not be blamed as he had to deal with the fact of transitioning a country and the rest of the Soviet Union that comprised of several hundred million people from a command economy to a more market oriented economy which was a difficult task.The bread lines in Russia in the 1990s were not caused by bad weather,droughts  or “socialism” it was free market capitalism.Russia’s agricultural privatisation programme can be traced back to 1989–1990, when Soviet legislation under Gorbachev allowed, first, the creation of non-state business enterprises in the form of cooperatives; and second, legalized private ownership of land by individuals (the November 1990 Law of Land Reform). While household plots cultivated by employees of collective farms and other rural residents had played a key role in Russian agriculture since the 1930s, legislation enabling independent private farms outside the collectivist framework was passed only in November 1990.Private household plots thus have still played a role in Russia right up to 2022.The new legal environment created expectations among Western scholars and Russian reform-advocates that family farms would emerge in large numbers and the large-scale collective farms would be restructured. But as it turned out, few peasants were interested in establishing individual farms, and management- and operating-practices inside large agricultural enterprises remained largely unchanged despite formal reorganization.The lack of enthusiasm for the creation of private farms was attributed to inadequate rural infrastructure, which did not provide processing and marketing services for small producers, and also to the fear that families striking out on their own might lose eligibility for social services that were traditionally provided by the local corporate farm instead of the municipality. Starting in 1993, privatized kolkhoz and sovkhoz units became corporate farms.These farms were legally reorganized as common-stock companies, limited-liability partnerships, or agricultural-production cooperatives and were turned over, usually in their entirety, to the joint ownership of agricultural workers and pensioners. These farms continued to operate largely as they had done under the Soviet system.Today, the term “corporate farm” is an all-inclusive phrase describing the various organizational forms that arose in the process of privatisation without involving distribution of physical parcels of land to individuals. The land-code reform of 2002, advanced by the administration of President Vladimir Putin called for the ownership of real-estate objects to henceforth follow ownership of the attached land plot; granted exclusive right to purchase or lease state-owned land to the owner of the attached real-estate object; gave to private owners of buildings on land plots owned by other private parties the preemptive right to purchase the land; and prohibited the future privatization of real-estate objects without the concurrent privatization of the attached plot.Russian agriculture today is characterized by three main types of farms.Two of these farm types – corporate farms and household plots – existed all through the Soviet period (the former are basically the successors of the Soviet collective (kolkhoz) and state (sovkhoz) farms).The third type – peasant farms – began to re-emerge only after 1990, during the post-Soviet transition.The evolution of Russian agriculture since 1990 shows a significant change of resources and production from the formerly dominant corporate farms to the individual farming sector.During 2006 private household plots and peasant farms combined controlled about 20% of agricultural land and 48% of cattle,up from 2% of agricultural land and 17% of cattle in 1990.The share of the individual sector in gross agricultural output increased from 26% in 1990 to 59% in 2005. Producing 59% of agricultural output on 20% of land, individual farms achieve a much greater productivity than corporate farms.After the Soviet Union collectivised it’s agriculture sector during the Stalin years and until the 1980s, most agricultural land in Russia was in state ownership, and the transition to a market-oriented economy had to start with privatisation of land and farm assets.Russia’s agricultural privatisation programme can be traced back to 1989–90, when Soviet legislation under Gorbachev allowed, first, the creation of non-state business enterprises in the form of cooperatives; and second, legalized private ownership of land by individuals (the November 1990 Law of Land Reform). While household plots cultivated by employees of collective farms and other rural residents had played a key role in Russian agriculture since the 1930s, legislation enabling independent private farms outside the collectivist framework was passed only in November 1990.The Law on Peasant Farms adopted in December 1990 was followed by laws and decrees that defined the legal organizational forms of large agricultural enterprises, the legal aspects of land ownership, and the procedures for certifying and exercising ownership rights.Specifically, agricultural land was denationalized, and its ownership (together with the ownership of other farm assets) legally transferred from the state to the ownership of kolkhozes.But at the same time the government imposed a ten-year moratorium on buying and selling privately owned land.Agriculture in Russia is despite the vast majority of the economy being a market-oriented economy agriculture is still a sector of the economy that requires government assistance and regulations.Global warming has for example has opened up more areas of arable land that was previously not suitable for growing crops due to the cold weather.Following a nearly ten-year period of decline during the 1990s as a result of the deregulation and adoption of free market capitalism at the behest of Yeltsin.Russian agriculture has experienced gradual ongoing improvement.The 2014 devaluation of the rouble and imposition of sanctions spurred domestic production; in 2016 Russia exceeded Soviet Russia’s grain production levels, and in that year became the world’s largest exporter of wheat.In the last years Russia has emerged as a big agricultural power again,despite also facing various challenges.Geopolitical analyses of climate change adaptation foresee large opportunities for Russian agriculture during the rest of the 21st century as Siberia’s stability increases.Managing migration flows, internal and international, is expected to be a central aspect of the process.Better mechanisation,improved acces to chemical fertiljsers and better varieties of crops and agricultural research done by the state.In many industries, income tax is 20%.However, the representatives of the agricultural sector belong to the preferential category.Therefore, a reduced tax rate of 6% is provided for them.In addition, business owners in the agro-industrial complex are exempt from transport tax as well as some other fees.Farmers are partially compensated for the cost of seeds, fuel, and fertilizers.There are no other industries like this in Russia where tax conditions would be as favorable as in the agricultural sector.Furthermore the agricultural sector has been the subject of major subsidies since 2000 ranging the hundreds of billions of rubies that is increasing exponentially every year.A gradual increase in agricultural subsidies was expected in Russia, given the data at hand.Following 30,000,000 Russian rubles increase of the subsidy budget from 2016 to 2018, agricultural subsidies were planned to grow further and amount to 377,000,000 billion Russian rubles by 2024.Collective farms still exist today in Russia its just that that they are more democratically run and are thus able to produce more than those  in Soviet Russia and produce yields equivalent or better than private farms because the profit motive ensured they worked arder.Yes the economy has become more market orientated and command economies and even planned economies have been largely eliminated and numerous factors have increased agricultural productivity but at the same time government intervention is still needed to stabilise the price of food such as tariffs,subsidies,breaks,regulations etc and incentivise farmers to produce food.Russias exponential increase in agriculture productivity has been caused and aided largely by government intervention,government research,government subsidies and regulations etc initiated by Putin in the early 2000s and eliminating this government intervention would cause imbalances in the economy and that could decrease agricultural productivity and increase the incidence of food shortages and bring back famines.Most of the economy is completely deregulated except the oil and other fossil fuels sector is state owned.As stated the agricultural sector is a mixed bag,some of it state owned,some of it is collectivised,some is privatised and some of it household plots.Due to this situation it has to be regulated and the government has to interfere in it more so than other sectors of the economy.Thus because of the wide variety of forms of agricultural production in Russia it can leave the rest of the economy completely deregulated and have zero government interference but the agricultural sector has to regulated and the government has to interfere and come to its aid due to its pivotal nature in the economy because of it doesn’t then it will lead to food scarcity and shortages issues and possibly famine.Even with the exponential growth of agricultural productivity in modern times it still needs to be regulated and have government interference just like China and just every other country especially considering how complex and diverse Russia’s agricultural system is.This is because despite these exponential increases in agricultural productivity Russia is still prone to food shortages due to its climate.No country can ever have complete deregulation or complete abolishing if government interference with regards to agriculture – it is the only sector of the economy that cannot be deregulated and have no government interfere and all government regulations,subsidies must be centered around it,otherwise a single dip in the economy will lead to skyrocking food prices and food shortages or even famine.Food shortages and thus bread lines did occur after Stalin’s death during the later half of the Soviet Union after 1947 but the cause of these were primarily due to the bad weather conditions present in Russia but due to intensive research by the government to make drought resistant varieties and better machinery etc coupled with the tolerance of private farmers and a command economy it did not descend into famine anymore with the government doing everything it could to alleviate the shortages such as importing extra food from Europe etc.Russia throughout its history including both ancient Times and during the Soviet era of the 20th century and even today in the 21st century due to its unpredictable weather and climate and considering large portions of the country are covered in semi arid lands not suitable for large scale intensive farming as well as the presence of birds etc that eat grain,unpredictable weather and lack of enough arable land is and always has been in comparison to other countries not entirely suitable for rearing food for large populations of humans so a sudden change in the weather and increase in pests and the shit hits the fan and famine can set in with during Lenin and Stalins time pesticides and drought resistant strains and also genetic engineering to create varieties of crops to be resistant to bad weather did not exist yet or were not availible with the state having to rely on food imports.Furthermore its climate is unpredictable with droughts,floods,harsh winters and cold snaps frequent.Throughout Russian history before the October Revolution of 1917 in ancient times and during Czarist Rissia etc and during Soviet Russia and modern times food shortages,famines and droughts have been a common feature, often resulting in humanitarian crises traceable to political or economic instability, poor policy, environmental issues and war.Droughts and famines in the Russian Empire prior to the October Revolution of 1917 tended to occur fairly regularly, with famine occurring every 10-13 years and droughts every five to seven years – this was before the October Revolution of 1917,during Soviet Russia and during modern times in the the 21st century..So yes like China  in its entire history of Russia even before the October Revolution and even during and after the Soviet Russia,Russia has been prone to food shortages,famines and droughts on a consistent basis something that would have occurred had the October Revolution never happened with droughts being either the cause or a contributing factor in each one much like China.These famines whose main cause was the weather killed routinely tens of millions of people at a time.Golubev and Dronin distinguish three types of drought according to productive areas vulnerable to droughts: Central (the Volga basin,North baron,North Caucasus and the Central Chernozem basin,New Caucasus and the Central Chernozem Region), Southern (Volga and Volga-Vyatka area,the Ural region, and  Ukraine)and Eastern (steppe and forest-steppe belts in Western and Eastern Siberia and Kazakhstan).Its true that the Holdomor genocide of was an intentional famine caused by the state with others were caused by resources diverted to war efforts and a secondary byproduct of the push for industrialisation similar to the Great Leap Forward with even the Siege of Leningrad being a famine caused by the Nazis to intentionally kill Russians but drought etc was always the source cause it a contributing factor.Famines were the result of both climatic factors and also a by product of ”war communism”,civil wars and the effects of the October Revolution that affected infrastructure such as trains that were needed to transport food effectively to affected areas.Almost all famines and food shortages in Soviet Russia occurred when coinciding with severe droughts that affected the areas.Mass famines were reported in years of drought in the 1920s and 1930s, and the last one occurred in 1946.This includes famines caused by droughts during the Soviet Russia  era that occurred in 1920,1921,1924,1936,1939,1946.These years after the October Revolution denote when a drought occurred and the next year a famine occurred – simple cause and effect.When crops and livestock don’t get enough water during a drought they die and have widespread shortages of foods which leads to many people dying to die starvation – also simple cause and effect.Since ancient times and up to modern times Russia has always been prone to famines caused by drought with this is why private family farms were set up in Czarist Russia and were made mandatory in Soviet Russia so as to ensure there always was extra food created outside of state etc farms as a backup that would survive droughts so as to ensure there was extra produced that would survive droughts and thus would be sold for profit and increase the disposable income or would be eaten directly by the homeowners so as to prevent or lessen the intensity of famines and food shortages caused by drought.Thus 90-95% of all famines in Soviet Russia were caused by drought and only a handful including the Holdomor were intentional and used as genocide with others being a combination of drought,war communism and poor infrastructure caused by Lenin etc inheriting countries that were several centuries behind the rest of the world to begin with or were side effects of warfare wherein resources were diverted from farming to warfare which was an unintended side effect.Poor infrastructure was caused by the fact that prior to Lenin coming to power the countries infrastructure was already several centuries behind the rest of the world to begin with and he was having to build it from scratch using a country that had had a stagnant economy for the centuries before he was born.Had the Czars empire he overthrew not held the country back for so long the infrastructure of the economy would have sufficient enough to have prevented these famine es in the first place.The Holdomer by the way was when the Soviet Russian government purposefully caused a famine in Ukraine(yeah you know that country Russia likes to pick on).Others were caused by greedy private farmers purposefully slaughtering livestock before they were mature enough to produce enough meat and milk and even slaughtering horses that were used to plough fields in collectivised farms thus hindering collectivised farms.This was done in protests at collectivisation of farms which is idiotic since it killed their customers.Thus capitalism was the root cause of famines in Russia.The last ever famine in Soviet Russia happened mainly in 1947 as a cumulative effect of consequences of collectivization,war damage, the severe drought in 1946 in which over 50 percent of the grain-productive zone of the country and government social policy and mismanagement of grain reserves.It was the reforms by Khrushchev and his intervention and reforms that was responsible for this elimination of famine.Furthermore the Green Revolution that began in the 1950s also played a role in this exponential growth in agricultural productivity.So yes,Russia that for its entire history has had to deal with consistent famine that cost tens of millions of lives was due to the policies of Khrushchev no longer had to deal with them any more.After Stalins death there have been frequent issues of food security and food shortages in Russia but this has always been because of drought,climatic conditions and to a degree corruption caused especially during the administration of Leonoid Breshnev and of course the 1991 deregulation on part of Boris Yeltsin but this was prevented by government regulations,government control of the economy and the existence of private farms.Putins government interference in the 2000s is what has allowed for the exponential increase in agricultural productivity not free market principles.Therefore it was government research,government intervention,government policies  and government subsidies and tax breaks etc that has led to the elimination of famine in Russia from 1947 onwards under both Khruschev and Putin.The Green Revolution of the 1950s had a lot to do with this elimination of famine.Food shortages and thus bread lines did occur after 1947 but this was largely caused by droughts which occurred at the same time with them kept at bay by improvements in agricultural techniques especially after the The Green Revolution of the 1950s..Any bread lines and food shortages that occurred in Soviet Russia  between 1950 – 1990 had almost always to do with the constant routine droughts that occur there.Every year food shortages and bread lines occurred they were preceded by a severe drought except of course the 1990s.Bread lines during the 1990s were caused primarily with deregulation under Boris Yeltsin which led to hyperinflation and skyrocketing food prices.Most of the country is covered in mountains and tundra which is not suitable for agriculture like China the majority that is suitable for agriculture is protected forests that cannot be used as agriculture because it contains endangered species of plants and animals that exist nowhere else.Floods are also a frequent problem.St Petersburg alone has had over 300 major recorded floods since its founding in 1703.Russia experiences extreme temperatures in winter and summer, and summer precipitation is low.Only about 7% of the country’s total landmass is arable, 60% of which is used for cropland and the remainder for pasture for livestock.Like China the arable land is spaced out in small pockets such as near Ukraine and the Eastern block.Many regions of Russia experience six months of snow cover each year and in these places the subsoil can often be frozen permenantly.The most fertile regions are in the southern parts of the country between Kazakhstan and Ukraine called chernozem (“black earth”) in Russian.Furthermore like China not all of the arable land can be used for agriculture because some of it is located in areas where the weather is not favourable meaning even though the land is suitable for agriculture the weather and climate may not be suitable for agriculture complicating things even further.This means land that is arable and this suitable for agriculture cannot be used for agriculture because the weather is also not favourable and conducive to agriculture.Land found in areas where the climate is favourable are also areas that are prone to frequent droughts,floods and frost on a constant basis every year thus affecting crop yields leaving the country open to food shortages and famines.It may be one of the largest countries in the world but 93% of its land is unsuitable for agriculture and the land is suitable for agriculture is subject to frequent and routine droughts,floods and frost – it is a miracle you can feed its population and still have enough for exports.This is likely a contributing factor as to why population growth in Russia has not exploded or needed government policies to control birth rates as it was kept in check by limited agricultural expansion alongside the fact that life expectancy grew after 1917.The decline in population since 1917 despite increase of life expectancy during Stalinist and post Stalinist Russia was likely due to emigration to other countries in the Soviet Union and also western world because food shortages were not a problem there.This was because Russia could not support large populations because of its inability to do so by itself due to geopolitical factors making it impossible to be self sufficient in agriculture so they moved to other Soviet countries and other parts of the world where it was not a problem and had little to with civil liberties.A large reason for people leaving Soviet Russia after the deaths of Stalin was likely because food shortages etc were not a problem something that was caused by droughts.In post Stalinist Russia especially during that Khruschev where civil liberties improved people emigrated due to a higher food security and this was because of the lack of ability of the country to be an agricultural powerhouse had Russia had more favourable conditions to grow more food making it self sufficient then its likely emigration would have been a problem.Remember the Khrushchev Thaw that is the increase of the civilisation liberties extended not only to Russia but also to the entire Soviet Union including Eastern Europe where people from Russia emigrated to meaning the reason people emigrated to Eastern Europe was because the countries due to having better climate etc were able to grow more food more than enough to meet the needs of people moving into the countries with them also having the same new freedoms.Despite being one of he largest countries in the world roughly twice the size of China it cannot support large populations due to the fact that large amounts of its land of unsuitable for agriculture and even habitation due to the fact that its climate especially in the north of the country is too cold for humans to survive in with its current population being 146,077,407 compared to most other more densely populated such as China which hads roughly ten times the population as Russia despite being half its size.Global warning had opened up this restricted land where weather is an issue but however the land contains large amounts of carbon dioxide equivalent to what America would release in 120 years which ploughing it would release it in large amounts within a few years thus making things even more complicated which if disturbed.This if climate change gets worse will likely have to be done since global warming will increase the likelihood of droughts and floods that in turn reduce crop yields and increase the incidence of food shortages and famines in areas that are currently used for cultivation thus creating a positive feedback thus negating any net increases.Russia is a net exporter of wheat and oat grain but it still a net importer of most other agricultural goods and and thus is still a net importer of food.Therefore it cannot be a net exporter of food and cannot sustain large populations without importing food thus making it a net importer of food.It therefore has to adopt a command or even planned economy.This has always been the case since agriculture first became a thing and its why private farmers existed in Stalinist and Leninist Russia.This was to change later on when Khrushchev came to power later and instigated intensive agricultural research to increase productivity even further..Russia has always been unable to be self sufficent in terms of agriculture due to its climate with it only able to do so in the later part of  of the 20th century namely the 1980s and 1990s and 21st century due to global warming which has warmed areas previously unable to support agriculture and also government intervention and government research etc under Khruschev and Putin.It is still today a net importer of food.Food shortages also no longer exist due to it importing more food and of course huge leaps and bounds in agricultural production due to genetic engineering,improved research into new varieties and also improved mechanisation which only occurred during and after Khrushchevs administration.Any food shortages that did exist were the result of the climate and its inability to be self sufficient.Even as productivity had increased under Khrushev and Putin Russia still has frequent food shortages in the 21st century  due to the weather and these food shortages have had to do the countries climate.Both Russia and Ukraine were subject to a series of severe droughts from July 2010 to 2015.The 2010 drought saw wheat production fall by 20% in Russia and subsequently resulted in a temporary ban on grain exports had the government not intervened in the 2000s and maintained farms and agriculture then its likely that famine would have settled in Russia and Ukraine in both 2010 and 2015.During this period in 2010 – 2015 when the majority of farms were private farms you saw massive bread lines in Russia.Even despite the exponential yield increases under Putin,privatisation and since 1947 the country is still prone to food shortages and even bread lines due to its climate and as a result it needs a command or planned economy or at least stringent regulations and incentives etc to keep productivity high in terms of the agriculture sector – deregulation of the agricultural sector and not keeping some semblance of a planned economy especially since the countries GDP and economy went into recessions after 2010 and 2015 will result in frequent recessions and also frequent bread lines.Even today droughts lead to food shortages and recessions in capitalist Russia on a consistent basis as seen in 2010 and 2015 when a drop in wheat yields even in privately run farms was caused by severe drought proving that drought is and always had been the cause of food shortages and famine in Russia through its entire history.It thus is still reliant on food imports and prone to food shortages and bread lines because of the weather and not government intervention.You could convert all the arable land into Russia into private farms it still wouldn’t make a difference they would still have food shortages..This shows that food shortages and bread lines do occur even in modern day capitalist Russia after the fall of the Soviet Russia and after the adoption of private farmers and after the adoption of a free market economy and the reason is Russia always has been prone to droughts.There have been food shortages and bread lines in Russia before the October Revolution,during Soviet Era and after it adopted capitalism all because of the countries climate and its consistent droughts.The country no matter what even after the end of “communism” is still prone to food shortages and bread lines for the same reasons of why they occurred during the Soviet Russia and before  in the Czar era – droughts.Except of course in 1991 those food shortages were the cause of massive deregulation and mass adoption of free market economics.The country can never be a net exporter of food and can never adopt a deregulated economy.Therefore deregulation in the rest of the economy caused recessions etc that were linked to these droughts and reduced agricultural productivity with the reduced agricultural productivity being a contributing factor to these recessions.Therefore Putins deregulation of the rest of the economy is a threat to the economy due to recessions caused by droughts and decreased agricultural productivity in 2010 and 2015 with this increasing the likelihood of boom and bust cycles,food shortages,famines and it losing its status as a economic superpower.To prevent future recessions command or planned economies must be adopted.This likely why Putin in 2020-2022 has sought to reinstall planned or even command economies similar to Soviet Russia because the last 30 years of deregulation has hampered economic growth and agricultural productivity and increased poverty in Russia.Economic growth and elimination of poverty in Russia has been held back for roughly 30 years by dergregulation something which has not effected China.So yeah Putin an oligarchic multi-billionaire estimated to be worth $200,000,000,000 worth more than Bill Gates,Mark Zuckerberg  and even Donald Trump etc the very symbol and embodiment of Russian free market economics and oligarchy who gained his wealth due to the 1991 reforms is returning to Soviet Russia era command or planned economies known by you yanke doodles as “socialism” and “communism” because it fucking works – it is the only way to eliminate poverty and the only way to become and remain an economic superpower in a capitalist economic system.This is because after cleaning up the economic and agricultural chaotic mess left by adopting a free market system of complete deregulation by Boris Yeltsin they completely thrashed the economy,led to massive bread lines and caused more chaos than its worth thus ruining Russias chance of becoming and maintaining Russia as an economic superpower and also to eliminate poverty in Russia as well eliminate food shortages and famine etc due to skyrocketing food prices just like China did.Putin has done every thing in the book to eliminate poverty and increase Russia’s GDP and eliminated food shortages that can be done in a capitalist system especially with Russia’s unique geopolitical etc situation that can be done and thus doesn’t work – it’s too volite and unpredictable with the only solution left being command economies similar to that employed in Soviet Russia which was responsible for exponential GDP growth,expontional increases in agricultural productivity,exponential rises in wages and exponential drops in poverty from 1917-1991 until free market deregulation was adopted which caused GDP,wages and agricultural productivity to decline exponentially and poverty to increase exponentially which Putin has done every thing he can to prevent that occuring again and reverse it except of course doing the one thong that actually works which is adopting command economies.But that doesn’t excuse him carrying out illegal wars and war crimes etc in Ukraine.The only way to become an economic superpower is to have a planned or command economy where economic growth continues rising exponentially forever at a stable rate while everyone else’s who doesn’t do this has constant cycles of boom and bust cycles thus ensuring they are constantly lagging behind.It is also is the only way to eliminate poverty as it prevents boom and bust cycles and prevents hyperinflation and ensures that GDP,wages and ones incomes rises exponentially every year.China has all but eliminated poverty but Russia has a good percentage 13-20% of the population living in poverty despite the best efforts of him which has been hampered by constant recessions and bust cycles.Thus its climate,soil types etc has always restricted Russia from being a agricultural powerhouse and thus private farms prevented or lessened famines thus food shortage and famines were thus always a result of the weather during the 20th century state capitalism under Lenin,Stalin etc it always relied on importing food.As a result both private farmers and command economies has to be adopted or you would have consistent famines.Had private farmers been eliminated during the Soviet era of Lenin,Stalin and all successive administrations or even then the country would have fallen into famine leading to mass starvation during the post Stalinist era during the succeeding adminstrations with them keeping the country afloat in terms of agriculture alongside the succeeding administrations importation of crops in order to prevent another famine.Therefore food scarcity in Russia is always an issue and can be resolved by importing foods or utilisation of private farmers.Even though food shortages existed after 1947 this did not lead to famine and mass starvation as before under Lenin and Stalin due to the adoption of private farmers,improved mechanisation and also the Green Revolution.This improved freedoms and research into agriculture was done to improve state the populace’s loyalty to the state.Krushev was unlike all other adminstrations overthrown in a coup due to his more radical liberalisation of the economy by increasing the democratic powers of the average citizens such as sealing the powers of the KGB,allowing more freedom of speech of the media such as allowing critical dissent of the state to be more pronounced and allow private enterprises to be opened in all sectors of the economy including the commanding heights as described by Lenin as private enterprises in banks,foreign trade and industry were allowed to flourish albeit with some restrictions with these and other democratic policies is what led to him being overthrown by Leonoid Breshnev.Under Khruschev to a degree and in particular under Gorbachev the commanding heights as detailed by Lenin such as banks,communications,foreign trade,light and heavy industry as well as agriculture were now open to private entrepreneurship with this continuing right up until the end of the Cold War and the fall of the Berlin Wall with private entrepreneurs allowed to branch into these areas of the economy despite being still being tightly regulated.Private entrepeneurs were now allowed to set up private businesses in any area of the economy including those previously restricted under both Lenin and Stalin with private farming still consisting of a growing percentage of the agricultural sector.Like the agricultural sector private entrepreneurs were allowed to be set up,meet quotas but were taxed and regulated preventing them becoming absurdly wealthy and were punished if they treated their workers harshly and were still kept in check to prevent them becoming too powerful to ensure the state still had majority power in these areas.This included banks,retail,restaurants and companies that created manufactured goods.Khruschevs administration was considered the most liberalised and open of the post Stalin adminstrations due to him opening up the economy to private enterprises and also even opening up the country to both Western ideals,popular culture and even allowing the media and arts be more critical of the government and allowed to praise the Western world with their being an instant explosion of the entertainment of such as music,film and novels that were either imported from the West or were homegrown Russia media with this known as the “Khrushchev Thaw”.During his administration western in particular American pop culture such as movies,music and food and drinks such as Pepsi and eventually Mcdonslds etc were allowed to be set up in Russia.Despite these liberalizing reforms in music etc many argue that Khrushchev’s legislation of the arts was based,not enough on freedom of expression of the Soviet people per se,and too much on his own personal tastes with the media such as music,movies and literature were still despite not being outright censored they were controlled to a degree – a smaller more liberalised degree than under Lenin and Stalin.Under Leonoid Breshnev the KGB did regain its place in society but not all of its powers with it not as pervasive as under both Stalin and Lenin.Criticism of the state and popular culture from the West were allowed but regulated.Yes people were imprisoned and were left malnourished but they were not treated as badly as under Lenin and Stalin with them usually deported and transferred to psychiatric wards where they were treated to the same treatments as homosexuals and schizophrenic patients at the time such as being kept in bedrooms,drugged and undergoing shock therapy or even exiled from the Soviet Bloc but they were not outright massacared etc as they did not want to return to the brutality of Stalin and Lenin who were considered national embarrassments by Khrushchev and all succesive governments.The KGB under Breshnev and all future administrations were lenient in comparison to what they were under both Stalin and Lenin.By the mid-1970s, there were an estimated 10,000 political and religious prisoners across the Soviet Union,living in grievous conditions and suffering from malnutrition.Many of these prisoners were considered by the Soviet state to be mentally unstable and were hospitalized in mental asylums across the Soviet Union.Under Brezhnev’s rule,the KGB infiltrated most,if not all,anti-government organisations,which ensured that there was little to no opposition against him or his power base.However,Brezhnev refrained from the all-out violence seen under Stalin’s and Lenin’s rule.This was done to prevent riots and disincentivise dissent as having the KGB be less brutal would encourage citizens to be loyal and believe they were free.Khruschevs policies were slightly made less democratic but not reversed outright as people’s criticism of the state were still alllowed but controlled with private enterprises allowed in all sectors of the economy but still regulated.People could criticise the state but with certain restrictions.Brezhnevs administration is known as the Era of Stagnation by Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev who is considered one of the most liberal of the post Stalinist Soviet leaders.The level of power the state had in censorship and alllowing economic freedom varied under each post Stalin adminstration and was done to improve the look of the Soviet government to western eyes and maintain loyalty to the state from Soviet citizens while still ensuring the state capitalist economic system prevailed and that the state still had control and monopoly of the economy.Even the worst of the state capitalists in the administration’s after Khrushchev were nowhere near as bad as Lenin or Stalin through simple being less sociopaths and also through them also wanting to maintain loyalty to the state from the citizens to and that was political and economic suicide especially due to the policies of Khrushchev especially after the death of Mao Zedong and the fall of both the Nazis and emergence of the Cold War left the administration of Soviet Russia little to no choice to abandon the policies of Stalin and Lenin in order to compete against their western counterparts.Khruschevs thawing of the censorship of Stalins and Lenins adminstration was a key factor in all successive administrations retaining some of his policies to retain state loyalty as had they returned to anything near that of Lenin and Stalin or indeed what they personally wanted it which was tighter restrictions on civil liberties without outright murder etc it would have then led to revolts and rebellion in the streets and thus would make Russia look terrible in the eyes of the west so they allowed entrepreneurs to start business in the commanding heights,retained the private farmers and relaxed censorship laws and allowed music and media from the west to be aired as well as allowed some criticism of the state to exist and more importantly they downgraded the KGB.The Communist Party of Soviet Russia was not a hive mind collective it never has been.Much like that of China the Communist Party of Soviet Russia contained people of different thought processes and levels of extremes of communist ideals that were constantly at odds with each other over how much power should be placed in the power of its citizens and the state even during Lenins and Stalins administrations.With regards to Lenin and Stalin they were publicity demonised as savages but only the most ardent and fanatical supporters who were a threat of staging a counter coup to reinstate the policies of Lenin and Stalin were imprisoned or censored with more less fanatical moderate supporters allowed to celebrate them publicly.Statues and murals etc of them were retained in public areas and people were allowed to venerate them publicly to a degree to ensure public loyalty to the state from their supporters and ensure obedience.Cracking down outright on supporters of Lenin and Stalin was not done as it was done to ensure state loyalty from their remaining public supporters who were allowed to venerate them through parades,statues and murals and was allowed by the more moderate members of government to ensure stability in the government.As stated only the most fanatical fans of Lenin and Stalin in both the government and public were imprisoned as they were the most likely to stage a counter coup against Leonoid Brezhnev and install someone just as bad as Lenin or Stalin something that they did want to return to.This post Stalinist and Leninist Russia under Brezhnev etc although not as completely free and liberalised as Khrushchevs adminstrations were much better than that of Lenin and Stalin.There were secret police and censorship but it was nowhere near as bad as that under Lenin and Stalin as they were both considered a national stain and embarrassment.The liberalisation of civil liberties by Khrushchev were kept but regulated  to prevent revolt from the public who benifitted from these liberalisations but to also look good in the eyes of foreign governments In otherwards the civil liberties of the average citizens were improved to ensure state loyalty from the populace especially after the radical liberalisation of Khrushchev and to look good in the eyes of the western world especially due to the advancement of tellocomunications such as televisions and phones which allowed images of live of the average citizen to be broadcast across the world and people could communicate more easily.The rise of television,tellocomunications played a role in the retaining of the relaxation of laws that infringed on the rights of citizens as it was now possible for the average citizens to broadcast live in the Soviet Union to the rest of the world life in the Eastern Bloc and Soviet Russia via newspapers,tellocomunications and television with it forcing the state to rather than orchestrate fake parades celebrating Lenin and fake improvements in the lives of citizens were able to be televised as they were.If the administrations after Khrushchev did what they wanted to do and tightened their grip further then it would have led to riots on the streets and further dissenting groups to form due to the liberalisation of  Khrushchevs adminstration.What Leonid and the rest of Russian politicians wanted was not a return to the brutal regimes of Stalin and Lenin who were considered a stain on the country but rather a middle ground between the brutality of Lenin and Stalin and what Khrushchev installed which was the economy controlled by the state and the commanding heights off limits – in otherwards a more relaxed form of what Stalin and Lenin installed with the commanding heights off limits,key areas under private sector control with the government in control of the media but still eliminating the brutality of the two dictators however due to Khrushchevs reforms and rise tellocomunications they had no choice but to keep his reforms.The average citizen was now due to the efforts of Khrushchev allowed to set up private business in all sectors of society including the commanding heights and was allowed access to foreign media and popular culture after Khrushchev even though this was the exact opposite of what his successors wanted who wanted to keep them under a more less radicalised version of what was present in Lenin and Stalins Russia.The rise of tellocomunications and the popularity of Khrushchev amongst citizens is why private enterprises were continued to be allowed to be set up and why certain liberal reforms of his were kept but modified.Thus adminstrations after Khrushchev did keep some of Khrushchevs liberalised reforms to a degree rather than going to what they preferred which were more draconian measures(that were still nowhere near as bad as Lenin and Stalin) to ensure that the populace would maintain loyalty to them and prevent the formation of dissident groups and revolts.Had Khrushchev never been in office the states control of society would still be draconian but not nearly as bad as that of Stalin and Lenin.The commanding heights would be still off limits and popular music and media from the West would still be censored.Khruschev was overthrown because had he stayed in offices he would have likely introduced more radical reforms that would have the states monopoly overthrown by eliminating censorship completely and allowing more liberal pro free market reforms to be instigated alongside more democratic reforms that would have allowed the populace to have more democratic control.Lenin and Stalin were a national stain on Soviet Russia after their deaths and even the most draconian of adminstrations did not want to return to the savage brutality of them.People were imprisoned rather than killed or sent to the gulags which were shut down for good.Even still those who were imprisoned were usually extremists who had a propensity towards terrorism with less radical critics of the state allowed to go free.They were those likely to carry out acts of terror on par with 9/11 etc as well as similar acts of terrorism and thus had to imprisoned not to preserve the safety of the state but to ensure the safety of the Russian people.Its like this –  if it was 1999 or 2000 and you knew Osama Bin laden was planning to carry out 9/11 and he was in your country would you imprison him or let him carry it out.Same goes for lone wolf attacks such as this me responsible for Colombians,La Isla Vista,Virgina Tech and so on.The people they imprisoned in post Stalinist Russia under Khruschev etc were those most likely to carry out mass shootings and terrorist attacks on the Russian citizens and most likely to overthrow the government and install an authoritarian system on par with or worse than both Stalin and Lenin.It was a necessary evil that was done to prevent Soviet Russia going back to the chaos of Lenin and Stalin.The vast majority of critics were allowed to be set free to ensure loyalty to the state especially after the radical liberalisations of Khrushchev – only the most extremist citizens were imprisoned and their conditions in prison were way better than the gulags.Conditions in prisons in post Stalin Russia was way better than in the administrations of Lenin and Stalin as torture was almost non existent.The effect of imprisonments for only the most extreme dissidents had the knock on effect of keeping the less radical citizens under control without the state having to go the extremes of Stalinist and Leninist Russia.The state by imprisoning only extremist who were a real threat and were prone to terrorism etc were able to keep the rest of society in control without outright control.To ensure state loyalty Leonoid etc and all administrations after Khrushchev had to tread lightly in applications of new laws in terms of what they wanted to impose on the public and what was needed to ensure state loyalty and prevent riots and rebellion from the general public.If they went too far in restricting civil and economic liberties they would have protests and rebellion and too much economic and political freedom would lead to people demanding more liberties and this would also lead to protests and rebellion.Therefore after Khrushchevs reforms more privatisation and civil liberty reforms was allowed to occur but this was carefully planned to prevent the state losing all of its power thus the state in post Khrushchev Russia had to give the populace the illusion of freedom to keep themselves docile.This is no different than Bush,Obama and Trump era America through the Patriot Act and the treatment of Julian Assange,Edward Snowden,Chelsea Manning at the gand of both RNC/DNC.The Republicans and corporate democrats both capitalists by the way torturing people,carrying out war crimes  and censoring progressives on YouTube and distorting the facts through mainstream media is no different than what was in Soviet Russia,Maoist China and Cuba by the state.Teapot calling kettle black anyone?Each adminstration after Lenin and Stalin were different in their level of economic and political freedom they allowed for Soviet citizens and this changed after the fall of the Soviet Union especially once Boris Yeltsin deregulated the economy and installed free market reforms and scrapped constitutional safeguards and that’s why we have Putin carrying out an illegal war and war crimes  with Ukraine.Khruschev and Gorbachev were considered the most democratic and liberal administrations.Both Nikita Khrushchev and Milkhail Gorbachev are examples that the Soviet could have existed after 1989 up until 2022 with the Berlin Wall demolished and still have retained democratic institutions.You can still have a state capitalist system.Private industry,co-ops and state run enterprises thus existed in Soviet Russia which cannot occur in either socialism or communism,it can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism.All of the Eastern blocs economies were modelled on that of Soviet Russia since they were technically the same country during the entirety of of 1917-1989 all under the governing power of the Soviet Union.In reality Lenin,Stalin,Khrushchev and all administrations of the Soviet Russia like Mao were not communists or socialists they were capitalists they just believed that like Mao it should be highly regulated and not corrupt with instances of imprisonments and mass murder in Leninist and Stalinist Russia was done to deal with those who were corrupt,refused to be regulated and treated their workers and tenants and thus got absurdly wealthy through corrupt means with those who towed the line were ignored completely.Soviet Russia was from its very beginnings during the reign of Lenin,Stalin as well Khruschev and all remaining administrations up until th fall of the Berlin Wall and continued to be so during the 1990s with it still being state capitalist under the Putin administration.Hardly the actions of a socialist or communist government that wants to quash out all private enterprises.In fact it’s the same as what goes on in the land of the free America under a Republican or corporate Democrat.If Stalinist and Lenist Russia was socialist or communist country then America is and always has been either communist or socialist.How can a country be considered communist or socialist when the government encourages the formation of private businesses and does everything it can and go out of its way to keeps them afloat through bailouts and guaranteed markets?If they are communist or socialist then American under the rule of the corporate Democrats,Republicans and both Bush,Obama and Trump administrations are communist and socialist The rate of economic growth for private farmers was rising but at a stable rate but greedy private farmers wanted to get more money more quickly and this would cause imbalances and recessions in the economy that would even eventually cause these greedy private farmers to lose all of their wealth or would put workers in state run farms and factories out of work and thus lead to poverty and thus famines which the state did not want.Thus the state had to regulate them.Had the economy been completely degregulated then boom and bust cycles would have caused havoc with regards to the price of grain meaning the economy had to regulated to the extent that it was.Regulation thus kept the Soviet  economy growing and the wealth of private entrepreneurs rising at a stable sustainable rate and prevented boom and bust cycles that the economy could not handle as if it occurred then it lead to mass unemployment,poverty and famine which was done to encourage state loyalty.Growth in the private sector would still have occurred and was occurring and increasing every year exponentially but at a stable and sustainable rate rather than happening to fast to the point that it would cause imbalances like the Scissor Crises and boom and bust cycles.At the same time growth in the state sector was also undergoing stable sustainable exponential growth.The rate of growth in income and wages for both private and state sector workers and entrepreneurs was rising exponentially every year at a stable and sustainable rate.Considering Soviet Russia was prone to famine due to poor weather and an unpredictable climate as well as pests etc as well as other environmental and geopolitical factors outside of the states control it could not handle a boom or bust cycle and thus regulated business to prevent them getting too powerful too quickly that would plunge the economy into a boom and bust cycle something it could not afford to occur at otherwise it would lead to poverty and famine.A boom and bust cycle and similar imbalances similar to the Scissor Crises would increase the chance of famines occurring due to rises in the price of food something they wanted to avoid.Furthermore if America etc on the other hand suffered a recession in a boom and bust cycle due to deregulation of the economy due to the American governments tendencies towards deregulation it would ensure that Soviet Russia would become an economic superpower which was what Lenin and Stalin wanted.The only way to become an economic superpower and remain an economic superpower indefinitely is to have the economy regulated through a command or planned economy which can only occur in state capitalism not socialism or communism but a planned economy in socialism and free market systems like state capitalism other types can suffice while all of the other competitor economies worldwide are unregulated markets that allow for the economy to continuously go through boom and bust cycles that even when they reach their height of each boom it is also different and not static and the higher it goes the greater the recession while your economy through regulation constantly goes upwards forever into infinity while everyone else economy stays in constant state of boom and bust.It is also is the only way to eliminate poverty as it prevents boom and bust cycles and prevents hyperinflation and ensures that GDP,wages and ones incomes rises exponentially every year.This guarentees that the GDP,income both private and state workers increases exponentially each year.Guarenteed markets,private businessesmen using extra disposable income combined with stable economic growth allowed the state to save enough money or at least go into small amounts of debt to carry out bailouts and buy crops etc from countries across the world to prevent or at least lessen famines and also ensure people survived to then produce and buy more to then pay back and cancel debts through extra profits to ensure stability.Soviet Russia like Maoist China through this saw one of the greatest rises in GDP of any other country in the mid to late 20th century.If a boom or bust cycle and recession occurred due to greedy entrepreneurs then the government could not afford to buy food etc from international markets and this would lead to starvation and further recessions.The type of economy was a command economy where the state had complete control of the economy which cannot occur in socialism or communism only state capitalism as a planned economy would allow the workers and citizens including private entrepreneurs to have a democratic say in the planning something which would lead to deregulation and thus boom and bust cycles.The government wanted the economy to be strong and have  strong growth by creating a balance between the growth of both the state run sectors and private sectors but regulated them much like Maoist China as too much growth in either state run sectors and private sectors would lead to imbalances and push the economy into chaos like the Scissor Crises and thus stunt economic growth and even lead to recessions,crashes and then boom and bust cycles.The Soviet government tried to avoid boom and bust cycles and recessions by regulating the private sector and stabilising  growth in both the state run and private sector because if they did then their economy would outcompete and grow faster and have a higher GDP than the West particularly America where government regulation didn’t exist and thus was prone to boom and bust cycles,recessions etc which would allow the Soviet economy to grow faster and outcompete that of the its western competitors as a recession caused by lack of government regulation in America etc would cause their economy to nosedive while the Soviet economy would continue to rise continuously thus allowing it to become a global superpower.The government can only do this in state capitalism and not communism or socialism.This why the state still tries to regulate the economy in modern times especially in modern state capitalist economies including Brazil,America,Norway,Finland etc its to ensure stable contionous growth,prevent recessions and boom and bust cycles and why countries with more sensible government regulations in Europe,Austrailia were virtually uneffected by the 2008 Global Recession and 2020 recession while Americas etc economies tanked and are still recovering after more than a decade.It is also which you have many middle class and poor people in modern China still revering Soviet Russia and want to return to the days of Soviet Russia primarily post Stalinist and Leninist Russia and why a small percentage still revere Lenin and Stalin or at least a less tyrannical version of them through post Stalinist administrations as you have alot of entrepreneurs in modern Russia getting absurdly wealthy through unethical means and many people getting screwed over and unable to gain an economic advantage.They want private enterprises to exist but want them to be regulated to prevent them getting too powerful preventing the rise of cronyism and eliminate boom and bust cycles.Regulations that existed in countries such as Soviet Russia that stunted the growth of small emergent businesses was the result of cronyism on part of state capitalism similar to America,Maoist China in order to ensure that a small number of private business that were key to the functioning of the economy stay afloat through bailouts and guarenteed markets as they contribute billions of dollars to the economy every year with the government doing everything to ensure they stay afloat including putting in regulations that shut down competitors in the form of any new or existing small companies.This why the myth that Soviet Russia was shutting down all private business and killing all of them existed when it wasn’t private businesses were allowed to flourish but only those that were key to the economy and not ones that state wanted infringing on its territory and profits and stability of the economy with the state deciding which ones to allow to be set up with them deciding which ones could be set up and what they sell and what limitations they had to prevent the economy going out of control.Allowing them to be set up without regulation and control would have caused an endless cycles of boom and bust cycles something Russia could not afford due to its geopolitical and environmental factors that would cause another famine and also to ensure economic growth would rise exponentially forever in a stable growth curve in order to surpass America and Europe as an economic superpower.Allowing for the economy to be completely degregulated would have caused more and even greater famines causing  the deaths of millions of more lives due to unsustainable fluctuations in the price of grain,meat etc.Famines and food shortages did occur throughout the entirety of Soviet Russia but it was always due to due to poor,weather,pests and also limited arable land in the country which was out of the control of Lenin and Stalin with the existence of private farms alongside importing food ensuring that any food shortages and famines that occurred resulted in significantly lower death tolls that would have occurred without their existence or in an completely unregulated economy.Command economies were necessary over planned economies and unregulated free market economies as at the time given the geopolitical and environmental factors  and to an extent technological capacity of Soviet Russia  as it was necessary to tightly control the economy as any imbalances and boom and bust cycles would lead to hyperinflation,skyrocking prices for grain and meat and thus lead to poverty and consistent famine.Without regulation the price of grain and meat would have skyrocketed and other economic effects would have plunged Soviet Russia into even worse famines.Adopting a completely degregulated free market,anarcho capitalist,libertarian economy would have caused hyperinflation,imbalances in the economy and continuous cycles of boom and bust cycles which would have severely exacerbated food shortages leading to outright famine due to skyrocking food prices and existing famines would have been much worse leading to exponentially higher death tolls.It would have negatively affected the countries ability to import food thus exacerbating food shortages and famines leading to consistent famines year after year..Considering Soviet Russia was already prone to famines due to poor weather and lack of arable land it had to install command economies to prevent boom and bust cycles and inflation which would exacerbated the problem.This is why private farmers were also given bailouts and guarenteed markets as they were key to the stability of both the economy and society should they go bankrupt then then the entire economy and society would collapse in on itself.Even today in Russia agriculture and the economy is still heavily regulated and controlled by the state for the same reason.Despite their savagery and brutality Lenin and Stalin and being agricultural idiots and savages they were economic geniuses.Private enterprises had to meet certain prequisites in order to be allowed to function.The relationship of guarenteed markets,bailouts and also corruption that exists in modern day state capitalist America is exactly the same as Soviet Russia as you had a small number of private corporate monopolies that were key to the economies functioning and they were given guarenteed markets and bailouts because of they failed and went bankrupt then the Soviet Russian economy would also nosedive and famines would become rampant with these corporations being kept afloat through whatever means even corruption in order to prevent poverty and famine with it thus a good form of corruption that was necessary to prevent outright famines and economic collapse unlike that modern America that is used to ensure perpetual warfare,environmental degradation and needless deaths every year.Thus private business especially farmers encouraged by the state were set up,funded and kept afloat by the state in order to prevent severe death tolls during famines through guarenteed markets and bailouts.Yes Stalin and Lenin were corrupt but it was necessary to save lives of the average citizen with their genocide and imprisonment of dissenters and corrupt businessesmen done against those they feared would endanger the economic growth that beniffited the prolitariet with racial undertones also forming the basis of their genocide.Corruption that existed was done to keep private industries afloat and was no different than the corruption by the RNC/DNC involving Congress,big pharma,big oil and the military industrial complex.Most if not all scholars state that in all of these “socialist” hellholes such as Soviet Russia the majority of the workers had no real meaningful control over the workplace but rather the state did with them all having visible private enterprises.Furthermore the actions of the state were not democratically decided upon as all taxes,regulations and laws were decided by the state without democratic input.A command economy was used which is undemocratic in nature and thus not socialism.This is not how socialism works this is how state capitalism workers.Democratic control was only relegated to the small number of cooperatives that existed in otherwards democratic control by workers was only confined to cooperatives and how they ran which were a small percentage of businesses and not within the confines of state run corporations and of course not within the confines of private corporations with all actions of the state being authoritarian undemocratic control meaning the workers or population could not vote on any taxes,regulations etc.Since the workers had no democratic control of their workplace and no democratic role in the decisions made by the government and cooperatives were a small percentage of the economy and the economy was controlled predominantly by both state run corporations and private corporations run by private entrepreneurs it could not be termed socialism.It was not communism due to the presence of private enterprises,state control and money.The use of the term collectivised and working together with in terms of propaganda and also state run industries such as farms and factories in Soviet Russia etc was likely used to brainwash people especially the ignorant or used in the context of working together against other state run enterprises,cooperatives and private enterprises with if possible the term collectivised used in the context of collectivised working rather than collectively run and operated wherein they were still operated by state run buerocrats in place of a CEO but the work was collectivised but the profits were not shared equally between all workers as in cooperatives rather they were paid according to their time spent each week etc similar to how large private farmers in modern times pay immigrants and other labourers etc fixed prices to harvest crops etc rather than sharing profits.Using the term communism and socialism was used to pull the wool over the eyes of its citizens and believe that they would one day get fully classless communism or socialism buy in reality they got state capitalism.The use of the terms working together etc was propaganda to instill morale and increase state loyalty and productivity like how modern day private corporations organise corporate get togethers,meeting,seminars,retreates and events to promote teamwork and improve worker morale you know those cheesy events,seminary’s etc that use slogans like “theres no I in Team” to improve productivity and about working together for the common good within ones corporation with it the same collectivised mentality propaganda in oother state propaganda in corporate America etc is exactly the same groupthink collectivised mentality propaganda as in Soviet Russia and Maoist China.By definition the private farms that were present throughput the entire history of Soviet Russia was private farming and thus private enterprises and private businesses allowed to all citizens by law where they were allowed if not encouraged to sell surplus for a profit to ensure that profits were spent on state owned business..Furthermore all other private business such as retailers,banks,restaurants etc alongside the  private farms during both periods of Soviet Russia that is early Soviet Russia during the administration of both Lenin and Stalin and also late Soviet Russia under the administration of Khrushchev etc were private business – something which is not allowed in ether socialism or communism either the bullshit definition or proper definition.The evidence that Soviet Russia was communist or socialist does not exist its pure fantasy.The evidence that it was state capitalist does exist therefore it was state capitalist.The economies of Eastern Bloc were modelled in that of Soviet Russia thus making them state capitalist.Russian government ownership of various companies and organizations, collectively known as state-owned enterprises(SOEs), still play an important role in the national economy.The approximately 4,100 enterprises that have some degree of state ownership accounted for 39% of all employment in 2007 (down from over 80% in 1990).In 2007, SOEs controlled 64% of the banking sector, 47% of the oil and gas sector, and 37% of the utility sector. State corporations are established by the Russian government to boost industrial sectors.Rosstat figures show that 529,300 enterprises are partly or wholly owned by the state, of which between 30,000 and 31,000 are commercial companies (generating revenue).The 54 largest enterprises account for over two-thirds of the total revenues generated by state-owned organizations.SOEs account for 40% of the capitalization on the Russian stock market one of the highest shares in the world.



State Capitalism in Maoist China:
This system of private land ownership and private farms where peasants were allowed to own private land to grow food for themselves and sell on markets was adopted by Maoist China during the 1960s after the Great Famine of 1959-1961 where 5% of the communal agricultural land was given to private farmers who could grown any crop any rear and livestock and sell it for personal profit.The land was still collectively owned to a degree by the state but it was leased to the private farmers and farmers had to meet quotas however what crops and livestock they reared and grew was up to them and all profits were kept by farmers themselves.In otherwards despite land being collectively owned private farmers that were private business were allowed if not encouraged to exist.Mao allowed other private business to exist in China once he came to power during his entire administration even before the Great famine but they were heavily regulated and controlled by laws,taxes etc to prevent them overthrowing the state monopoly and releated to the rural communities of the country but these individuals that owned private industry,farms and businesses were allowed to make profits for themselves and not anyone else either the the state or other workers which is not allowed in socialism or communism only capitalism.In as much as private enterprise remained indispensable in light industry and trade, it was logical for the government to foster it.Since, however,private capitalism,if unrestricted,might interfere with the over-all plan for economic de-velopment,the government retained tight control over its activities to ensure that they benefited the national economy.Government control of private enterprises was intended to subject them wholly to the government and to the state-owned sector of the economy.It achieved this aim by measures which (1) demonstrate the economic as well as the political power of the government,(2) show the readiness of the government and/or the state-owned sector to help private enterprise, and (3) organize the latter so as to facilitate government control.The outstanding demonstration of the government’s economic power was afforded by its price-stabilization program,which employed the superior financial strength of the state trading companies to drive speculative business- men into bankruptcy.Its political power was best illustrated by its relentless persecution of private entrepreneurs during the “five-anti” campaign,which was essentially intended to bring private businessmen to heel and to keep them in line with the government’s schemes.By and large private businessmen found guilty of any of the “five evils”—i.e., bribery, tax evasion,fraud,theft of state assets,or leakage of state economic secrets—suffered punishment designed to sap their financial resources sufficiently to make them dependent on the state owned sector of the economy.At the same time,the government had showed readiness to come to the rescue of private entrepreneurs whenever they found themselves in difficulty through government programmes and bailout programmes as well as buying products from private markets and farmers providing a guaranteed lucrative market for capitalist enterprises similar to the 2008/2020 bailouts and the way big oil,big pharma and the military industrial complex are guaranteed lucrative business deals- hence why the United States is considered state capitalist by some philosophers and economists.The guaranteed markets were done on the promise that both private farmers and merchants and their workers would buy produce from state owned enterprises with their extra disposable incomes in an mutually beneficial relationship with the produce sold to international markets or fed to government workers and even the poor to prevent starvation at a loss.Mao through passing these laws to set up and  to regulate private enterprises did it to keep private enterprises under strict control of the state something that does not happen in socialism and communism.By this very act of passing these laws to regulate private enterprises rather than shut them down completely Mao was admitting and showing it was state capitalism and not socialism and communism by the fact that these laws proved that private enterprises existed in the first place because laws to regulate private business can only occur when private businesses exist in the first place which can only occur in state capitalism not socialism or communism.Government regulations to regulate private businesses can only occur when private business exist in the first place which cannot occur in socialism or communism either the proper or bullshit definition.They cannot exist when private enterprises do not exist.Why would a communist and socialist government enact laws to set up and regulate private enterprises if they are not allowed to exist in either communism or socialism in the first place?Maoist China allowed private business to exist during his tenure roughly 10-20% but modern day China has almost 40% of the economy privately run.Private industry and commerce were allowed to flourish under Mao from the very start because the state was unable to carry the burden of building the entire economy and thus light industry was left to private corporations and commerce particularly urban-rural commerce was left to private merchants.This is the exact opposite of socialism or communism.The state was allowed control of commodities that are essential to price stability and people’s livelihoods such as agriculture,construction and heavy industry with private enterprises picking up the slack and dealing in areas the state could not control or develop.They were not communist because communism requires the complete dissolution of the state while they were not socialist because they were state owned corporations that sold goods and services for a profit to fund social programmes and infrastructure and increase GDP not publicly owned industries which are two completely different things.State owned corporations like the ones that existed in Maoist China can only exist in state capitalism.State owned corporations existed in Maoist China  because due to the profit nature of state owned corporations the money generated by profits was fed directly into the states treasury to be used for GDP,investing in infrastructure and social welfare which cannot occur in nationalisation and socialism.Thus although the state controlled the main sectors of the economy and the majority of these sectors primarily in urban areas the private enterprises controlled by private entrepreneur individuals were needed to pick up the slack on a small scale from the grounds up particularly in rural areas and increase production where the state couldn’t do it.All sectors of the economy whether it was agriculture,trade,artisans,light and heavy industry,restaurants and retail etc were open to private entrepreneurs in Maoist China its just that they were sidelined to rural communities in order to pick up the slack where the government could not develop the economy.Private enterprises were pivotal in developing the economy of Maoist China before the disastrous Great Leap Forward and even before it but it was allowed to flourish even more after the recession caused by the Great Leap Forward.Collectivisation was only adopted because it was believed that combined with the disastrous agricultural practices would increase profits.In fact the need for private farmers was done to prevent another famine caused by the Great Leap Forward in rural areas which was hardest hit.Like Stalin and Lenin private farming was encouraged and relegated to feeding primarily the rural communities as these were the hardest hit by famines with like Soviet Russia large collectivised farms were used to fed urbanised centres while small private farms were used to feed primarily rural communities that were the most prone to famines.This system allowed large farms to feed large populations in urban centres and small farms fed small populations in rural areas.Like Soviet Russia several smaller famines and food shortages occurred but they were much less severe due to the legalisation of private farmers as the death tolls were significantly lower than in the Great Famine with at most only a few thousand or few hundred people dying compared to several tens of millions and were again the result of bad weather outside the control of the state.The state did everything it could to eliminate famines to ensure state loyalty such as importing food from Europe etc.Simply put even though the vast majority of large farms were collectivised private farms were allowed to function in order to prevent starvation should another drought induced famine occur under Mao as he although collectivising all farms and this increased productivity allowed private farms to function to ensure food security should another famine occur.The state run collectivised  farms were used to feed mainly the urbanised areas such as cities thus leaving the rural communities prone to starvation especially should poor weather occur as they were left with very little due to the imbalances in population density with rural areas surviving on scraps of these and primarily on crops reared in private plots of land thus the majority of food eaten by those in rural areas was from private farms.The urban centres got the most food because they were more densely populated than rural areas and thus rural areas were left with scraps and thus were more prone to famines and thus required private farms to survive..Famines and food shortages that occurred were due to not just due to the weather but also the population demographics and the need to keep the urban areas fed as they were involved in the most important and labour intensive work for the state and private sectors of the economy.Thus there was a tendency to have the majority of not all food produced on state run farms sent to urban centres.State run farms were feeding urban centres while this left the rural areas with nothing so as a result private farms were set up and maintained through guaranteed markets and bailouts to feed rural areas as they were the most prone to famine due to state run farms feeding urban areas with this because those living urban areas worked the important and labour intensive jobs such as construction,banking and in factories and so they were kept fed using the large yields from state run farms and in the time of crop losses caused by bad weather were compensated by private farmers allowed to sell surplus in markets within large cities with them alongside this feeding rural towns and villages.The private farmers were set up and kept afloat to feed primarily rural areas and feed cities when bad weather affected crop yields.Keeping private farming and other private business afloat by providing guaranteed markets and bailouts etc even though they ate into the states profits was pivotal in keeping the economy thriving but also preventing famines occurring especially in the rural communities that needed them and even if they did occur at least lessening the intensity of them.Thus state run farms fed densely populated urban areas while private farms fed rural communities to prevent famines.Food shortages did occur after the first few deadly ones especially the Great Famine of 1959-1961 but it was through the utilisation of private farms that they did not descend into famine with death tolls were significantly lower and less severe in the rural communities which were prone to being affected the most this is because private farmers were in charge of feeding primarily the rural communities a opposed to the urban centres.These food shortages and famines were always due to the weather which was outside of the governments control and the state went out of its way to prevent them through importing food from other countries and allowing private farms to flourish.China due to its unpredictable weather and climate and considering large portions of the country are covered in deserts and semi arid lands as well as the presence of locusts,birds etc that eat grain is and always has been in comparison to other countries not entirely suitable for rearing food for large populations of humans so a sudden change in the weather and increase in pests and the shit hits the fan and famine can set in with during Maos time pesticides and drought resistant strains and also genetic engineering to create varieties of crops to be resistant to bad weather did not exist yet or were not availible with the state having to rely on food imports.China is and always has been unable to be self sufficient in terms of agriculture due to large sections of its country housing land not suitable for agriculture and it having very little arable land even in modern times China is still a net importer of food with its budget on food imports increasing from $14,000,000,000 to $104,600,000,000 between 2003-2017 – only 7-10% of its massive land is good enough to be arable for localised food production and thus conducive to agriculture with it having roughly 18-22% of the worlds population.Although China’s is one of the biggest countries in the world and its  agricultural output of in particular rice is the largest in the world, only 10% of its total land area can be cultivated.China’s arable land, which represents 10% of the total arable land in the world, supports over 20% of the world’s population.Of this approximately 1.4 million square kilometers of arable land, only about 1.2% (116,580 square kilometers) permanently supports crops and 525,800 square kilometers are irrigated.The land is divided into approximately 200 million households, with an average land allocation of just 0.65 hectares (1.6 acres).This compares with more than 20 percent for the continental United States which is around the same size as China, despite having one billion fewer people China’s limited space for farming has been a problem throughout its history, leading to chronic food shortage and famine.While the production efficiency of farmland has grown over time, efforts to expand to the west and the north have met with limited success, as such land is generally colder and drier than traditional farmlands to the east and thus despite the land itself is suitable for growing crops the climate is not suitable for crops.Thus while the land in certain areas of China is suitable for agriculture the climate is not suitable for agriculture thus complicating things even further.Like Russia some areas with arable land cannot grow crops because of the weather is not conducive to agriculture.Even the areas that have the climate favourable to agriculture are prone to frequent droughts,floods and frost thus leaving the country open to food shortages and famine in a constant basis.Since the 1950s, farm space has also been pressured by the increasing land needs of industry and cities.Most of China is comprised of deserts including the Gobi desert(the sixth largest desert in the world),mountain ranges(a large chunk of the country is taken up by the Himalayas)and swamps etc very little land is suitable for agriculture and the majority of that which is suitable for agriculture is protected wilderness usually because it land that is unique to China or houses endangered species that cannot live anywhere else in the world.The vast majority of China both in ancient times,Maos time and even modern times is simply unsuitable to large scale agriculture.It is one of the largest countries in the world yet 90% of its land is unsuitable for agriculture,a good chunk of the arable land is in areas with weather that is simply not conducive for agriculture and most of the land that is conducive for agriculture is in areas that have frequent droughts,floods etc – it is a miracle you can grow anything there especially to feed its high population since 1949 and still have enough for exports.You cannot feed 18-22% of the worlds population in less than 10% of the worlds arable land – it’s mathematical impossibility not today,not in ancient times and certainly not in Maoist China.It may be one of the largest countries in the world but it has less than 10% of the worlds arable land and is one of the most populated country with it having 10 times more people than Russia etc.This fact was probably the reason why the one child policy was started in the 1970s because it was unable to feed itself and was reliant on imports and if the population got too large it would have constant famines with the one child policy scrapped only when agricultural productivity was high enough coupled with imports from the western world was sufficient enough to allow for it to be scrapped..Furthermore it’s probably the reason the Great Leap Forward was put through without foresight as there was a desire to increase grain production to make it cheaper and thus pseudoscience was adopted and at the same time increase steel production and exports in order to increase GDP to the point that China could increase the amounts of money available to import more crops to feed its growing population preceding the one child policy.China today despite huge exponential gains in agricultural productivity is still a net importer of food and still has challenges to meet.You could convert all availible arable land in China into private farms and it still wouldn’t be able to feed itself and would still be a net importer of food.Then of course there is the fact that China’s has an unpredictable climate unlike Europe and America as freak droughts,heatwaves etc can arise out of nowhere and simply decimate entire years with of crops.Due to these factors the agricultural sector has to be subsidised by the government,it needs government intervention,government research and it needs to import food from other countries and it needs planned or command economies otherwise it would plunge into consistant famines killing tens of millions every year.China has consistantly since ancient times thousands of years before the birth of Mao has been the victim to some of the worst droughts,floods and typhoons and resulting famines throughout human history occuring frequently every few decades or years like clockwork with them lasting months if not years and killing hundreds of thousands or even millions of people  at a time with both the El Niño–Southern Oscillation and La Niña being a primary cause of these.Like Russia in ancient times and before Mao came to power or was even born there were consistant famines caused by droughts,floods,storms which killed tens of millions of people combined almost near to the death toll of the Great Chines Famine 1959-1961.Even though these two phenomena are predictable in modern times they are still at times complex and unpredictable at times especially when factoring In anthropogenic climate change but in ancient times and even in Maoist China they were not understood at all.On average, southern Xinjiang has the longest mean duration of drought, more than 250 days per year.Qinghai and northern Gansu Province have the second-longest mean duration of drought.For China as a whole, the average occurrence of severe and nationwide drought has been 7.5 times each year from 1951 before the Great Famine of 1959-1961 to 1990.Heatwaves in 2022 similar to that that struck the rest of the world wiped out huge tracts of both private and state run farms by starting wildfires that burnt out huge tracts of crops.The country is prone to droughts every year.Between 2000 and 2020 during its huge transition to a more capitalist based economy especially in the agricultural sector, the country’s food self-sufficiency ratio that is a countries ability to feed itself through agriculture using age land within in its own country actually decreased in China from 93.6% to 65.8% during the huge shift towards capitalism in China and private farmers from 2000 – 2022.Therefore food scarcity is always an issue inherent in Chinas geopolitics no matter what and can be resolved by importing foods,command economies or encourageing private farmers.Even today food insecurity and shortages are an issue in China due to the weather especially in the face of climate change and thus it had to be a net importer.As a result both private farmers and command economies has to be adopted or you would have consistent famines.This shows that it’s ability to feed itself has always been an issue caused not by government mismanagement but rather the complex geopolitical situation China is in.Even though agricultural productivity is on the rise it is prone to shocks caused by the weather and it is still unable to feed itself and thus must rely on importing food as its ability to increase productivity has not caught up with its rise in population..Like Russia collective farms still exist in China is just that they are now more democratically run and not enforced upon meaning they now have yields in par with private farms.Collective farms still exist today in China its just that that they are more democratically run and are thus able to produce more than those in Maoist China and produce yields equivalent or better than private farms.Had private’s farmers not existed then the death toll of succeeding famines after 1961 would have been just as bad as the Great Famine of 1959-1961 if not worse.The Great Chinese Famine was the only famine caused by the state.Food shortages and famines existed before and after the Great Famine largely because of the weather etc.Mao and his entire administration realised after the disastrous Great Leap Forward policy that to prevent another famine private farmers were needed to intervene in order to increase productivity in especially rural farms that were the hardest hit by the Great Famine with rural areas also benefitting the most from other private entrepreneurs in commerce etc.Therefore he set up private farmers and kept them afloat through guaranteed markets and bailouts in order to ensure that productivity was consistently high.He carried it out in order to do the same thing as Russia there were still state farms but there were now private farms.He did this in order to save face and make his state capitalist economy and administration look good in the eyes of western governments and ensure state loyalty by the Chinese citizens and to ensure strong economic growth as well as of course prevent famines.The desire in not wanting to have another famine is also evident in the fact that he reversed laws to eliminate Eurasian tree sparrow (Passer montanus) as these originally were eliminated as part of the Four Pests campaign as each bird was believed to eat at least 4.5kg of grain per bird with Mao overlooking the fact that they also ate agricultural pests such as beetles and locusts.With the birds population declining the locust population grew substantially enough that they became a bigger threat to crop yields than the birds decimating large amounts of crops exacerbating the famine when combined by poor weather and  bad government mismanagement and relying on state run agricultural production.Since he could not control the weather he could reverse laws that encouraged the killing of the birds(instead focusing on killing bed bugs)allowing the birds to thrive again to kill agricultural pests and allowed private farmers to have increased control of the agricultural sector to increase productivity.He did this to prevent another famine to make China look good in the eyes of the west and maintain state loyalty to the Chinese showing to them that he did it want a repeat of the the famine.Had the weather been stable and had the locusts never came it would have been possible for the famine to not have been as bad or not occurred at all as the role of government mismanagement came from the fact that Mao moved grain away from the worst affected rural areas because he was being lied to by his officials who were exaggerating yields of grain etc thus making him think that the farmers etc in rural China had more than enough to eat due to exaggerated yields and thus shipped more grain  to the cities more than what was needed by city dwellers and also exported more and imported less than usual to nearby countries.Had he known the extent that how bad yields were due to drought and the locusts its likely he would have left more to the peasants and imported more from neighbouring countries and exported less or none.This is how government mismanagement made things worse and played a role in exacerbating the famine as had Mao knew the extent of the poor yields due to the locusts and poor weather he could have kept enough grain for the rural communities and also exported less and imported more thus preventing most of not all deaths that occurred.The country was struck by a series of natural disasters both a drought that struck the country and a flood in 1958.This flood affected 741,000 people, submerged over half a million acres of crops (3.04 million mu), and destroyed over 300,000 houses in 1,708 villages.There seems to be this notion that the Great Famine of 1959-1961 was a thing that occurred throughout the entirity of Maoist China as it was responsible for about 90-95% of Mao supposed death toll but it took place only once over a three year period and there is also it was also a grand scheme by him to purposefully create a famine when in reality the base causes of the famine such as severe droughts(the weather),locusts etc  were due to factors completely out of his control.It was government mismanagement likely due to him being lied to by his officials that excerabated the problem even further.Furthermore the base concept of the Great Leap Forward was flawed and not thought out throughly with it possible if he had kept farmers growing food and trained others into the steel industry then its likely it would have been more successful.Government mismanagement, as well as misguided agricultural sciences and policies and purposefully wanting a famine to occur are two completely different things.Remember the purpose of the Great Leap Forward was to increase both steel and rice production exponentially in order to increase GDP and make China an economic superpower.Mao was using agricultural theories proposed by Trofim Lysenko which were discredited as pseudoscience much later after the famine took place.One of these ideas was deep ploughing the idea that ploughing the soil deeper than normal would lead to better yields under the idea that the deeper one went the richer the soil was.This was based on the ideas of Lysenko’s colleague Terentiy Maltsev, who encouraged peasants across China to eschew normal ploughing  depths of 15–20 centimeters and instead plow deeply into the soil (1 to 2 Chinese feet or 33 to 66 cm). The deep plowing theory stated that the most fertile soil was deep in the earth, and plowing unusually deeply would allow extra-strong root growth. While deep plowing can increase yields in some contexts, the policy is generally considered to have hindered yields in China.Secondly there was the idea that planting seeds closer than normal would not cause a crop of the same species to compete for resources.This was known as close planting, whereby the density of seedlings was at first tripled and then doubled again.The theory was that plants of the same species would not compete with each other.In natural cycles they did fully compete, which actually stunted growth and resulted in lower yields.Both of these were debunked as pseudoscience years later after the famine.Then of course there was the four pests campaign.The degree to which people’s communes lessened or worsened the famine is controversial.Each region dealt with the famine differently, and timelines of the famine are not uniform across China.All regions did not produce the exaggerated yields,some had higher exaggerations and the level of actual yields varied from region to region.At first, the famine didn’t touch the 90 million privileged people living in the cities.Their grain was ”guaranteed” by the state.But when the farmers got too weak to farm out of hunger, the state’s grain ran out, too, and the famine spread to the cities.Its possible if better agronomists and agricultural scientists were employed then its possible that the death toll would not exist..If they had adopted hydroponics/Aquaponics that was available at the time then they could have increased yields exponentially without fear from the poor weather and and also government mismanagement etc.Mass collectivisation was at first successful but when combined with the other factors it contributed to it.China’s Communist Party leader, Mao Tse-tung, had read Russian press reports about new farming systems, such as ”deep plowing” and ”close planting,” that supposedly were producing record yields on Russian state farms.Mao was busily forcing his millions of peasants into collective farms, reneging on his promise to give them their own land.He hoped ample harvests would keep the farmers content even if they didn’t own their land.But the Russian reports were lies: Plowing too deep turns up subsoil with few nutrients, few soil bacteria and little capacity to nurture crops.And planting 10 times as many seedlings per acre, without fear from the poor weather and also government mismanagement etc.China’s Communist Party leader, Mao Tse-tung, had read Russian press reports about new farming systems, such as ”deep plowing” and ”close planting,” that supposedly were producing record yields on Russian state farms.Mao was busily forcing his millions of peasants into collective farms, reneging on his promise to give them their own land.He hoped ample harvests would keep the farmers content even if they didn’t own their land.But the Russian reports were lies: Plowing too deep turns up subsoil with few nutrients, few soil bacteria and little capacity to nurture crops.And planting 10 times as many seedlings per acre, without fertilizer, starves all the plants. (Mao refused to spend scarce capital on chemical fertilizers.)Rural officials didn’t dare oppose the chairman, so they followed his instructions.They didn’t want to tell him about failure, so they claimed his new methods had tripled the harvests.When Mao toured model collective farms, they showed him flourishing rice fields so densely planted that small children stood atop the growing grain stalks! (Huge numbers of rice plants had been laboriously transplanted just for his visit, and the children were standing on hidden benches.)He was driven past miles of piled-up vegetables.Officials said the communes had more food than they could eat, even with five meals a day.Historically, the government had taken about 30 percent of the harvest for the cities and the army.And since the countryside was reporting three times as much grain production,Beijing demanded three times as much grain, too.But that left only 10 percent of the harvest to feed the farm workers and their families.Local party leaders, for their part, conspired to cover up shortfalls and reassign blame in order to protect their own lives and positions.Mao was kept unaware of some of the starvation of villagers in the rural areas who were suffering, as the birth rate began to plummet and deaths increased in 1958 and 1959.In 1960, as gestures of solidarity,Mao ate no meat for seven months and Zhou Enlai cut his monthly grain consumption.In visits to Henan province in 1958, Mao observed what local officials claimed was increases in crop yield of one thousand to three thousand percent achieved, supposedly, in massive 24-hour pushes organized by the officials which they called “sputnik launches”.But the numbers were faked, and so were the fields that Mao observed, which had been carefully prepared in advance of Mao’s visit by local officials, who removed shoots of grain from various fields and carefully transplanted them into a field prepared especially for Mao, which appeared to be a bumper crop.The local officials became trapped by these sham demonstrations to Mao, and exhorted the peasants to reach unattainable goals, by “deep ploughing and close planting”, among other techniques.This ended up making things much worse; the crop failed completely, leaving barren fields.No one was in a position to challenge Mao’s ideas as incorrect, so peasants went to extreme lengths to keep up the charade; some grew seedlings in their bedding and coats and, after the seedlings quickly sprouted, “planted” them in fields—the bedding made the plants look high and healthy.Like in the massive Soviet-created famine in Ukraine (the Holodomer), doctors were prohibited from listing “starvation” as a cause of death on death certificates.This kind of deception was far from uncommon; a famous propaganda proganda picture of the famine shows Chinese children from Shandong province ostensibly standing atop a field of wheat, so densely grown that it could apparently support their weight. In reality, they were standing on a bench concealed beneath the plants, and the “field” was again entirely composed of individually transplanted stalks.Instances did occur where houses did house grain enough to feed people in a village but were blocked from entering or even executed but since each region had different government administraters these and other instances were likely carried out by them without Maos direct instruction or misinterpretation of his intructions.It is known that low level of yields and level of the suffering and  death tolls were carried from the ground up to the highest officials but stop just short of them right under Mao meaning the highest officials just under Mao knew of this but to avoid an appearance of failure and be executed they likely kept this information from Mao this to a degree he was again lied to or made ignorant of the truth.The agricultural economy was centrally planned, and regional Party leaders were given production quotas for the communes under their control.Each communes had different quotas.Their output was then appropriated by the state and distributed at its discretion.In 2008, former deputy editor of Yanuang Chunqui and author Yang Jisheng would summarize his perspective of the effect of the production targets as an inability for supply to be redirected to where it was most demanded:In Xinyang people starved at the doors of the grain warehouses.As they died, they shouted, “Communist Party, Chairman Mao, save us”.If the granaries of Henan and Hebei had been opened, no one need have died.As people were dying in large numbers around them, officials did not think to save them.Their only concern was how to fulfill the delivery of grain quotas and then open those doors to peasants once the quotas had been meet..Its likely Mao did not know of this and thus guards simply ignored pleas from peasants as they were following direct not to give food until quotas were meet.Had Mao known of the level of suffering and correct level of yields then it is likely he would have made efforts to have what was availible be made availible to the peasants to ensure state loyalty.The policy set up was to only have grain appropriated to the peasants only when the quotas were met – and since quotas were not met due to low yields then it lay uneaten in the graineries.What was present in the grainieries was by actual records enough to have fed towns,villages and cities provided it was distributed not only to people in the same area but in different areas or grainieries with large surplus amounts of grain could have been  distributed to areas that had lower yields which did not occur due to a breakdown in communications between the leaders in each region.Had a proper system had been set up to distribute grain evenly across the country then each regions harvests stored in each grainieries could have been distributed not just to people in the same region but also to other regions across the country so that grainieries that had more than enough to feed their area could give enough to feed that area and then excess could be transferred to areas where it was in short supply to keep populations alive and probably reduce the death toll by half.One argument is that excessive eating took place in the mess halls, and that this directly led to a worsening of the famine.If excessive eating had not taken place, one scholar argued, “the worst of the Great Chinese Famine could still have been avoided in mid-1959”.Thus people being greedy assholes and eating too much of their own fair share or what they needed when they were lied to about levels of supplies likely led to to supplies running out very quickly exponentially quicker than it would have normally had.The overeating was likely carried out due because people were lied to about the amount of food – the over exaggerated yields made people believe in superabundance and thus ate more than their fair share to the point that they got fatty and overstuffed meaning supplies ran out exponentionally quicker.Had the true yields been known its likely that people would have eaten less – enough to get by but not at starvation level.Its possible that people not over eating and had people given access to food in graineries then the death toll would have been reduced by at least 70-80%.However, dire hunger did not set in to places like Da Fo village until 1960,and the public dining hall participation rate was found not to be a meaningful cause of famine in Anhui and Joangxi In Da Fo village, “food output did not decline in reality, but there was an astonishing loss of food availability associated with Maoist state appropriation”.If these two things had been rectified the death toll could have been reduced by 74%.If the weather was more favourable and did not have a flood and drought in the years before it the death toll could have been reduced by an extra 10% thus 84% in total.Not killing off the birds and Mao being told the truth and thus not exporting grains etc and redistributing it much better would have reduced the death toll by another 10% thus reducing it by 94% meaning as much as 51,700,000 deaths could have been prevented and only a mere 3,300,000 people may only have perished.This level of complexity could only occur in a modern world where AI and automation are possible.Capitalists quote the 55,000,000 deaths as if it’s the entire death toll and think that a famine would not have occurred had a capitalist been in charge.It was caused by a surprise droughts and change in the weather and locusts something that was out of his control or anyone’s control – with government mismanagement exacerbating it,it would have occurred regardless of who was in charge.Mao set out idealistic and high goals for agriculture with his officials fearing they would be killed for reporting the true lower than expected yields caused by the drought etc likely over exaggerated the yields thus leading him without knowing it make the famine worse by exporting more and importing less and also ignoring the rural areas as it is believed  he was completely unaware of the suffering in the rural areas if the country who were hardest hit.Many historians are polarised as to how much Mao knew of the extent of how bad the weather and locusts affected the crop yields.Some believe he was clueless due to being lied to by his officials who wanted to please him at the fear of being imprisoned or killed themselves for  reporting the true lower than expected yields and thus over exaggerated yields thus making him non complicit in the increased death toll while others believe otherwise thinking he knew full well of its extent and purposefully allowed the famine to happen.Although actual harvests were reduced, local officials, under tremendous pressure to report record harvests to central authorities in response to the innovations, competed with each other to announce increasingly exaggerated results.These results were used as the basis for determining the amount of grain which would be taken by the State, supplied to the towns and cities and exported.This barely left enough grain for the peasants, and in some areas, starvation set in.Mao’s efforts to cool the Leap in late 1958 met resistance within the Party and when Mao proposed a scaling down of steel targets, “many people just wouldn’t change and wouldn’t accept it”.Thus, according to historian Tao Kai, the Leap “wasn’t the problem of a single person, but that many people had ideological problems”. Tao also pointed out that “everyone was together” on the anti-rightist campaign and only a minority didn’t approve of the Great Leap’s policies or put forth different opinions. Jean-Louis Margolin suggests that the actions of the Chinese Communist Party under Mao in the face of widespread famine imitated the policies of the Soviet Communist Party under Joseph Stalin (whom Mao greatly admired) nearly three decades earlier during the Soviet famine of 1932-1933.At that time, the U.S.S.R. exported grain for international propaganda purposes despite millions dying of starvation across southern areas of the Soviet Union.Ashton, et al. write that policies leading to food shortages, natural disasters, and a slow response to initial indications of food shortages were to blame for the famine.Policies leading to food shortages included the implementation of the imporoper commune system and an emphasis on non-agricultural activities such as backyard steel production.Natural disasters that excaerbated this included drought,flood,typhoon,plant disease, and insect pest.Droughts and flooding cannot be the sole reason they account for at least 40% of the blame but they were a contributing factor to the famine with the interrelationships between floods and droughts as well as government mismanagement creating a positive feedback wherein they exacerbated each other.Policy changes affecting how farming was organized coincided with droughts and floods.As a result, year-over-year grain production fell dramatically in China.The harvest was down by 15% in 1959 compared to 1958, and by 1960, it was at 70% of its 1958 level.The slow response was in part due to a lack of objective reporting on the agricultural situation, including a “nearly complete breakdown in the agricultural reporting system”. This was partly caused by strong incentives for officials to over-report crop yields.The unwillingness of the Central Government to seek international aid was a major factor; China’s net grain exports in 1959 and 1960 would have been enough to feed 16 million people 2000 calories per day.Ashton, et al. conclude that “It would not be inaccurate to say that 30 million people died prematurely as a result of errors of internal policy and flawed international relations.”.Through simply preventing overeating the death toll of the famine could have reduced by 54%.Mobo Gao suggested that the Great Leap Forward’s terrible effects came not from malignant intent on the part of the Chinese leadership at the time, but instead related to the structural nature of its rule, and the vastness of China as a country.Gao says “the terrible lesson learnt is that China is so huge and when it is uniformly ruled, follies or wrong policies will have grave implications of tremendous magnitude.It is true to some extent Mao did purposefully restrict aid and grain to specific individuals and groups mainly his enemies.Benjamin Valentino writes that like in the USSR during the famine of 1932-1933, peasants were confined to their starving villages by a system of household registration and the worst effects of the famine were directed against enemies of the regime Those labeled as “black elements” (religious leaders, rightists, rich peasants, etc.) in any previous campaign were given the lowest priority in the allocation of food, and therefore died in the greatest numbers.Drawing from Jasper Becker’s book Hungry Ghosts,genocide scholar Adam Jones  states that “no group suffered more than the Tibetans” from 1959 to 1962.The production targets were not accompanied by a sufficient amount of capital and modern inputs such as fertiliser rather, they were to be reached in large measure by heroic efforts on the part of the peasants, often beaten into submission by overzealous party cadres.Substantial effort was expended during the Great Leap Forward on large-scale but often poorly planned capital construction projects, such as irrigation works and ‘backyard furnaces’. Because of the intense pressure for results, the rapidity of the change, and the inexperience and resistance of many cadres and peasants, the Great Leap Forward soon ran into massive difficulties.The peasants became exhausted from the unremitting pressure to produce.The inflation of production statistics, on the theory that accuracy mattered less than political effect, resulted in extravagant claims. Disruption of agricultural activity and transportation produced food shortages. In addition, the weather in 1959–61 was unfavorable – though this took a minor role compared to governmental inefficiency and overambitious campaigns, and agricultural production declined sharply.Cooperative members retained ownership of their land but secured a share in the cooperative by staking their plots along with those of other members in the common land pool. By 1956 the transformation of mutual aid teams into agricultural cooperatives was nearly complete. By the end of that year, moreover, the great majority of cooperatives had moved to a still higher stage of  collectivism having become advanced producers’ cooperatives.These cooperatives contrasted with those of the earlier stage in that members no longer earned income based on shares of land owned.Instead,collective farm profits were distributed to members primarily on the basis of labor contributions.The fact that profits were not equally shared discentivised them to work harder and also technically they did not qualify as actual cooperative farms.Furthernore collectivised farms were forced upon farmers and thus this demoralised them..The average cooperative was made up of 170 families and more than 700 people.Although small private plots and thus private farms were permitted, most of the land was owned collectively by the cooperative.Therefore private farms still existed in Maoist China during the Great Leap Forward and the resulting Great Famine of 1959-1961 which then means that it was neither communism or socialism but rather state capitalism that caused the famine.Collectivised farms were forced upon the populace which coupled with the presence of private farms and the lack of equal shared profits and lack of democracy means that there’s were not actual collectivised farms and thus collectivisation cannot be a contributing factor.Once collectivisation was achieved and agricultural output per capita began to increase, the leadership embarked on the extremely ambitious programs of the Great Leap Forward of 1958–60. In agriculture this meant unrealistically high production goals and an even higher degree of collectivization than had already been achieved.The collectivisation was not successful as there was still private farms in existence during the Great Leap Forward.The existing collectives were organized very rapidly into people communes much larger units with an average of 5,400 households and a total of 20,000 to 30,000 members on average.The production targets were not accompanied by a sufficient amount of capital and modern inputs such as fertiliser rather, they were to be reached in large measure by heroic efforts on the part of the peasants,often beaten into submission by overzealous party cadres.This shows that the farms were undemocratic and not actual collectively owned farms but rather quasi state owned farms with this demoralising workers alongside the fact that large amounts of farmers were diverted to work in steel production.Had Maoist China has access to chemical fertilisers and machinery that replaced horses then its possible that yields could have been enough to produce enough to prevent famine even in the face of all the other factors..After the Great Famine of 1959-1961 genuine efforts were thus made to increase agricultural productivity including allowing and encouraging private farmers to be set up and flourish and be sidelined to especially the rural areas that were hardest hit with it noted that Mao had decided to give up red meat when he heard rumour of more people going hungry in order to allow said meat to be spared for them or to stop meat production in order to allow the grain usually fed to livestock to be fed to humans.The government began distributing food substitutes: ground-up banana tree roots and stems to be mixed with steamed rice, cakes made of rice husks, sugar-cane fiber and turnip tops.People hunted rats and sparrows. Finally, in 1961, Mao’s senior lieutenants assembled conclusive evidence of the massive death toll.Mao was forced to reverse his farming policies.Peasants were allowed to plant grain for themselves and the Chinese government began to make big investments in chemical fertilizers,encouraging the growth of private farms..In 1962, the Chinese government even bought grain from the hated capitalists in Canada and Australia.People were encouraged to write relatives overseas for food parcels.In fact asides from that dip in 1959-1961 after the Great Chinese Famine the amount of grain produced by China actually exponentially increased every year after 1961 even during the last remaining 15 years of Maos administration and life and has been doing so exponentially since his death in 1976 except for a few drops which coincide with major droughts.In fact the Great Famine of 1959-1961 was in fact the very last famine ever in a country that has had consistently had to deal with famines caused by floods and drought etc since Ancient Times.So yes in China a country that had since Ancient Times frequently had to deal with famines that were the result of droughts and floods etc was after Great Fame of 1959-1961 had from then on no longer to deal with it due to the reformed policies of Mao.This was the only famine to occur under Mao and was the result of drought,floods and a very bad government plan.Fear was also a contributing factor.Mao had built up a reputation from the initial genocide of capitalists and dissenters as someone not to dissapoint etc or else you get executed that the entire government on local to federal level during the famine and the previous years during the implementation of the Great Leap Forward led to the entire communist party and rest of the government on a local level to overreport yields,under report deaths and follow vague policies that they decided to keep him the dark about everything and this exacerbated the problem further.Furthermore prior to the Great Famine of 1959-1961 the levels of grain production were in fact increasing exponentially every year from 1943-1959 right up to before the disastrous Great Leap Forward.So yes Maos policies after the disastrous Great Leap forward and subsequent famine is what has led China a country that has had consistently had to deal with famine since Ancient Times to one that has have never had to deal with famine ever again.It was the only famine to occur in Maoist China.Its causes were a combination of natural disasters pandemic a misstep in government policy.Its not like Mao intentionally set out to create the greatest famine in human hostory or in Chinese history because his aim and the whole purpose of the Great Leap Forward was to increase agricultural productivity and steel production in order to increase exports and thus GDP to make China an economic superpower and lift it out of the Middle Ages into the 20th century.How would purposefully starting a famine turn China into an economic superpower.Misinformation in the form of pseudoscience,his officials over exaggerating crop yields and under reporting the extent of the famine alongside floods and droughts led to the high death toll.This famine which accounts for half of the supposed 100,000,000 death toll of communism could have occurred if China was not “socialist” or “communism” but rather gung ho capitalist and if an actual capitalist entrepreneur,libertarian etc was in charge with the same authoritarian and economic illiteracy as Mao due to the geopolitical factors of the time.If Mao never came to power in 1949 and China was still under the through of capitalism and a capitalist was in power and the same industrial capitalist was given the same pseudoscience,had diverted farmers into the steel industry etc and was just as authoritarian as him and initiated the same policy to bring the country forward then the same famine would have occurred.It was less about “socialism” or “communism” and more about a mistake meaning a capitalist with the same gung ho capitalist conservative fervour as say Donald Trump in China in 1959 could have just as easily adopted the Great Leap Forward in the same manner for the same reasons then resulting in the same death toll.In otherwards even if Mao never came to power and a capitalist just as fervereant and authoritarian as Donald Trump came to power in 1949 and the country was still capitalist and needed to increase agricultural productivity and steel production and he was given the same pseudoscience and bad ideas then its likely the Great Leap Forward and the resulting Great Chinese Famine of 1959-1961 would have been just as bad as it was in our timeline and universe.It wasn’t a case of it being the result of bad government policy as it was just badly thought out any politician whether a libertarian and conservative capitalist could have carried out the Great Leap Forward with such disastrous result.If the Great Leap Forward was applied by anarcho capitalists,libertarians with zero state control and allowed the machination s of the free market system then the same outcome in the form of the Great Chinese Famine would have occurred in 1959-1961.The point is that considering the geopolitical conditions of China in the 1950s anyone if they were a socialist,communist or even capitalist could have made the same mistake in the form of the Great Leap Forward and had the same terrible famine.There was so many ways the Great Leap Forward could have gone better by first not diverting farmers to steel work and not adopting pseudoscience.The farmers could have been given mechanisation in the form of tractors etc and chemical fertilisers.Keep in mind like Soviet Russia,Maoist China was still several centuries behind the rest of the world and was still using horses and manure from them etc which the rest of the world has outgrown since the 1700s.The lack of development in the economy probably made these expensive.Furthermore they were up until then exempt from the Green Revolution which was occurring in the rest if the world.Then of course hydroponics,aquaponics etc could have been utilised you improve yields which was at least 2,000 years at that point.Then of course the pseudoscience of Trofim Lysenko could have been ignored alongside the four pests campaign focusing on locusts rather than sparrows.The deep ploughing method etc could have been tested on several plots and then discarded.Mao himself regretted the Great Leap Forward and it was largely done without forethought due to the need to lift China from the Medievil ages to the 20th century.The fact that his officials lied to him purposely about the true extent of the low yields and covered up barren fields,covered up the rioting and the mass graves and reports of starvation and also kept everything else’s in the dark to him shows that to a degree Mao can be absolved for the death toll and the famine itself.As stated he did not intentionally set out to cause a famine it was a combination of numerous factors that coalesced into each other that led to it occuring.He could have if shown the actual records of crops  made efforts to import crops and relief from other countries including the west and reduce exports.The reason the Great Leap Forward was carried with no forethought was to bring the country several hundred years from the 1300s to 20th century.Had the country not been held back by feudalism then they would have had the technological capacity not to have required it in the first place and reason that the death toll was so high was due him being lied to and this led to him exporting more crops,importing less from other countries and not changing the policies with regards to the distribution of crops.Had he been shown the true yields its possible that he would have imported more from other countries and exported less and changed policies with regards to distribution as he did takes steps to prevent another famine or use of chemical fertilisers,employ mechanisation and stopped the slaughter of sparrows and furthermore gave up red meat.The fact that this was the only famine under his administration and the very last famine in China’s entire history a country that for thousands of years suffered famines routinely that killed more than the Great Chinese Famine combined proved that he regretted the Great Leap Forward and again it was not done intentionally and was done without forethought as a need to bring China centuries ahead on par with the western world.If you were a capitalist in his place given the same pseudoscience and lies to would you have done anything different?Famines are not good for economic growth and since it did cause an economic collapse and he was trying to bolster the economy it was not intentional.Mao did not intend on causing a famine as his goal was to spur economic growth and famines like the Great Chinese Famine did cause economic collapse something he did not want and he knew would happen and tried to avoid therefore he did not set out to cause it was a result of bad economic plan in the form of the Great Leap Forward.Mao had after his initial genocide during his early adminstration years before 1959 created a culture of fear amongst his subordinates and regional leaders who didn’t want disappoint someone who did not tolerate opposition and failure and so they lied constantly to him and Mao was only if the last people to fully gain acknowledgement of the horror and extent of the famine caused by the Great Leap.In otherwards people below him knew full well the true extent of the famine and its death toll throughout its entirety but lied to him and he was the one of the last people to be told it was so bad of that it even happened.His underlings did virtually everything they could to prevent news of it happening at all reaching Maos ears including outright lying,suppressing riots and burying bodies in mass graves.When you have tens of millions of people dying in the space of three years your going to have mass graves and bodies piling up in the streets and mass riots which for the most part Mao was unaware of.Mao was completely unaware of what was going only until at the very end of the famine as at that point it was impossible for his subordinates to cover up reports of the death toll or that it was happening due to increased rioting and the fact that bodies of those who died of starvation were starting to pile up in the streets of villages,towns and cities that are too numerous for officials to bury in mass graves to hide them from him.China in 1959-1961 due to being underdeveloped and being several centuries behind the rest of the world meant that news of what was going in could not be televised across the country through newspapers,radio reports etc and whatever deaths occurred were reported to the leaders in each region of China under Mao and it stopped right there they did not report to him how bad things were until after 1961 so technically to a large degree Mao was completely unaware of the true death toll and extent of the famine until at the very end.Its possible that Mao was kept in the dark of what was going in terms about riots and bodies piling up in the streets and mass graves by his officials just as likely as they overexagerrated yields of crops.Televisions,radios etc were not common enough to be able to control as in modern times because as stated China was already several centuries behind the rest of the world.Mao was not in a  position himself to suppress the extent of the famine through censorship of and control of the media because he did not know it was so bad.All regions of China during this period due to its large size and adopting a state capitalist command economy had each region divided from each other and they in turn were likely divided into each city,village etc and each region and towns and village had in place government officials in charge of micro managing the collection and distribution of crops,manufactured goods from each town,city and region with them sending back and forth reports of events that took place and yields etc from each region and city etc.If the state wanted to have specific information sent back and forth from a specific region it would have the official in charge contacted allowing for information to be collected and sent with this taking into account the fact that China at this point due to being several centuries behind the rest of the world not everyone had access to telephones,televisions,radios etc with even Mao not having access to this as most reports came in the form of telegraph and paper sent in from horses with the development of television,radio,newspapers was gradual from 1949-1976.Whatever happened in any region or village was reported first to government officials who then then reported this to the central government and then Mao.All reports of yields of grain etc,famine and starvation from the worst affected rural areas first reached government officials in charge of overseeing each areas and they not wanting to displease Mao likely kept the reports of famine a secret and over exaggerated yields thus deliberate miscommunication lead to the famine in the first place.Government officials not wanting to displease Mao upon hearing of reports of famine and riots lord to him and did whatever they could to cover up the riots and dead bodies.Also the fact that this was the only famine during his administration and the very last famine in China’s history shows that Mao made efforts to prevent another famine highlighting that the famine was not caused intentionally it was the result a poorly thought out government policy that was born out the intention of lifting the country from the Medievil Ages to the 20th century and actually eliminating poverty.Therefore Mao cannot be credited with the 15,000,000 – 55,000,000 dead from the Great Chinese Famine of 1959 – 1961 since it was not an intentional act of genocide it was effect of a mistake and badly thought policies meaning that 15,000,000 – 55,000,000 dead can be removed from the 100,000,000 death toll of “communism and “socialism and that of Mao himself ” lowering it to at least at least 45,000,000.Mao was therefore intentionally responsible for at most a few million deaths within the range of between 5,000,000 – 10,000,000 deaths.This is the exact opposite of say Congress and Donald Trump actively carrying out actions with malicious intent that qualify as intentional genocide during a pandemic.This doesn’t negate the fact he was responsible for an extra several million deaths due to the Hundred Flowers Campaign and Cultural Revolution.Same goes for Soviet Russia etc the largest amount of death tolls came from primarily famines which were rooted in drought etc.The Great Chinese Famine of 1959-1961 which accounts for about half of the death toll of “communism” was a mistake that just about anyone could have made.As stated Mao did not intentionally set out to cause the greatest famine in human history it was the result of bad policies that anyone including a capitalist could have carried out.The purpose of the Great Leap Forward was to bring China a country that due to being ruled by feudalism up until 1912 was at least several centuries behind the rest of the world into the 20th century and make China an economic superpower.Famines are not good for economic growth and the Great Chinese Famine proved that and since Mao didn’t want to cause an economic crash he therefore did not want to cause a famine.Therefore using logic Mao did not set out to intentionally cause a famine because doing so would cause a massive recession and drop in Chinas economic journey to being an economic superpower which it did and this was the exact opposite of what Mao wanted.Prior to the famine GDP was rising exponentially and after it there was a sharp drop in GDP for several years and after correcting the mistakes GDP rise exponentially.Therefore causing a famine was not what Mao wanted.The fact that efforts were made to prevent famines shows this as it was done to increase GDP and prevent another recession as after the Great Chinese Fanine there was a brief shock and recession in the economy and this was not what Mao wanted.Thus great effort was done to prevent future famines and food shortages.Any future famines,food shortages and thus drops in the economy were nowhere near as bad as The Great Chinese Famine and these were caused by bad weather and pests something outside the control of the government with this also true of all state capitalist countries such as Soviet Russia that is anytime famines and resultant economic shocks that occurred were always the result of poor weather and pears which these countries were prone to since ancient times right up to modern times.With the exception of the Holdomor there are no international famines as causing a famine would lead to economic shocks that would hamper the chances of a country to become an economic superpower.Other famines are the result of diverting resources to the military and not infrastructure or damage to infrastructure caused by military conflict which was not intentional with again most famines and food shortages caused by bad weather combined with pests something the government worked its ass off to prevent from happening through any means possible and this could not be named on these.The vast majority of deaths associated these “communist” countries during the 20th century such as Soviet Russia,Maoist China etc was due to famine and poor decisions with most  famines the result of poor weather outside of the control of these governments.At least another 25,000,000 – 35,000,000 that were the result of famines outside of the control of governmental control.Outside of famines the intentional death toll of “communism” that is where the state intentionally carried out genocide comes to at most 10,000,000 – 20,000,000 people still high but only about 10-20% of the 100,000,000 death toll and capitalism kills far more than that every year and decade.Therefore in reality only 10,000,000 – 20,000,000 people died under “communism” and “socialism”.Capitalism kills this amount every year.Even if the death toll is at least 100,000,000 kills this amount every five years.Food shortages did occur due to droughts but they never led to famines due to command economies,private farmers,chemical fertiliser and the Green Revolution etc.Any bread lines and food shortages that occurred in China between 1960 – 1990 had almost always to do with the constant routine droughts that occur there.Therefore there is a myth that famine was a consistent problem in China under “communism” as after that single famine food productivity rose exponentially every year up until modern times with poverty also exponentially declining every year since his death and in fact even before his death after the last famine..Looking back, it seems hard to believe that Mao and his colleagues would be taken in by Russian pseudoscience, which could have been checked easily with a few test plots.It’s also hard to believe that government officials would rather starve their own people than admit to the world a policy mistake had been made.So yes Mao did use the famine as a excuse as to carry out intentional genocide against his enemies but not all of his citizens.He did not intentionally start the famine to cause a genocide he merely used a famine that had been caused accidentally by his administration mistakes to then use it as a means to kill his enemies in others he used the famine that was caused by accident and his officials covering things up to then kill his enemies by restricting aid to certain populations of the country using the famine caused by accident to carry out intentional genocide through starving them was done against his enemies efforts were made to alleviate the famine when it came to his citizens with issues of people being denied food stored in grain houses largely being carried out by Mao but by by different people in charge of each region and commune..Therefore the famine was not an intentional act but misguided and poorly thought out government actions and although it was used to an extent as an opportunity to commit actual genoicide against his enemies it was not done so at the behest of intentionally killing off his own citizens as killing his own citizens through starvation even those loyal to him would not help state loyalty meaning to an extent he knew there was some shortages to restrict aid to his enemies but not as severe that he purposefully refused grain to his loyal citizens.Mao knew that purposefully starving his own loyal citizens would cause revolt and it’s why he believed sending more grain to the loyal densely populated cities was important to keep the factory worrkers loyal and exported more to increase GDP to invest more in infrastructure.The fact that agricultural productivity was already increasing exponentially every year prior to 1959 shows that the Great Leap Forwards plan of increasing grain yields was unnecessary.The level of government mismanagement shows that it was not a collective or colleberative effort on part of the government as a whole as most government officials of each regions were competing against each other and even against Mao in how to control the disaster.Even the notion of communes does not infer collaboration as each region in theory competed against each other for resources from the state.Part of the main reason for the Great Leap Forward was a desire to outcompete both the United States and United Kingdom in still production which in order to do so required a need to increase steel and grain production and thus was motivated by Mao wanting to repay loans he had with Soviet Russia as it was believed that Mao owed Russia billions of yuan to Russia and wanted to pay them back quickly therefore he was willing to do and believe any pseudoscience in order to make ad much money as quickly as  possible..Within the Party, there were major debates about redistribution.A moderate faction within the party and Politburo member Liu Shaoqi argued that change should be gradual and any collectivisation of the peasantry should wait until industrialisation which could provide the agricultural machinery for mechanized farming. A more radical faction led by Mao Zedong argued that the best way to finance industrialization was for the government to take control of agriculture, thereby establishing a monopoly over grain distribution and supply.This would allow the state to buy at a low price and sell much higher, thus raising the capital necessary for the industrialization of the country.By diverting farmers away from farms and into steel production and construction led to further agricultural waste.However, the amount of labor which was diverted to steel production and construction projects meant that much of the harvest was left to rot because it was not collected in some areas.Despite the harmful agricultural innovations, the weather was very favourable in 1958 and the harvest was also good.However, the amount of labor which was diverted to steel production and construction projects meant that much of the harvest was left to rot because it was not collected in some areas.Furthermore there was a major flood in 1958 that led to Mao deciding to use farmers as search and rescue teams thus again allowing crops to rot.This problem was exacerbated by a devastating locust swarm, which was caused when their natural predators were killed as part of the Four Pests Campaign.Although actual harvests were reduced, local officials, under tremendous pressure to report record harvests to central authorities in response to the innovations, competed with each other to announce increasingly exaggerated results.These results were used as the basis for determining the amount of grain which would be taken by the State, supplied to the towns and cities and exported.This barely left enough grain for the peasants, and in some areas, starvation set in. A 1959 drought and flooding from the Yellow River in the same year also contributed to the famine.During 1958–1960 China continued to be a substantial net exporter of grain,despite the widespread famine which was being experienced in the countryside, as Mao sought to maintain face and convince the outside world of the success of his plans.Foreign aid was refused.When the Japanese foreign minister told his Chinese counterpart Chen Yi about an offer of 100,000 tonnes of wheat which was going to be shipped away from public view, he was rebuffed.John F Kennedy was also aware that the Chinese were exporting food to Africa and Cuba during the famine and he said “we’ve had no indication from the Chinese Communists that they would welcome any offer of food.”With dramatically reduced yields, even urban areas received greatly reduced rations; however, mass starvation was largely confined to the countryside, where, as a result of drastically inflated production statistics, very little grain was left for the peasants to eat.Food shortages were bad throughout the country, but the provinces which had adopted Mao’s reforms with the most vigor,such as Anhui,Gansu and Henan,tended to suffer disproportionately.Sichuan,one of China’s most populous provinces, known in China as “Heaven’s Granary” because of its fertility, is thought to have suffered the highest number of deaths from starvation due to the vigor with which provincial leader Ali Jingquan undertook Mao’s reforms. There are widespread oral reports, though little official documentation, of human cannibalism being practiced in various forms as a result of the famine.Author Lan Yianke also claims that, while growing up in Henan during the Great Leap Forward, he was taught to “recognize the most edible kinds of bark and clay by his mother. When all of the trees had been stripped and there was no more clay, he learned that lumps of coal could appease the devil in his stomach, at least for a little while.”He like most people would have been unaware as to what effect killing birds would have on locust populations as understanding of the complex ecology of China was basic at best for its time –  its true that they knew locusts are grains but they also believed the sparrows ate more grain and did not eat locusts and so killed the birds rather than the locusts but the main factor was an unusually bad and surprise drought brought on by China’s unpredictable weather meaning its likely had a capitalist had been in charge of China instead of him and had nothing but private farmers and no command economy that economic idiot capitalists wanted then its likely the death toll would have just as bad or even worse.This is because hyperinflation would have been the cause of the famine and the ratio of land catered to private and state farms would have caused chaos and more than likely they would not have been able to deal with the fact that the same amount of crops would fail due to the bad weather and also the fact that they would have likely killed off the sparrows thus encouraging the locust population to skyrocket.In otherwards the same factors that caused crop losses and low yields would have still occurred under a capitalist economy meaning the death toll would have just as bad.Thus there is debate as to how responsible he was for the 45,000,000-55,000,000 dead from the Great Famine of 1959-1961.Under Mao private enterprise was restricted mainly to the rural areas while the state focused on urbanised areas.Private enterprises were also allowed in retail,restaurants,the steel industry and other sectors outside of state control.Therefore these private farms in Maoist China and other businesses were by all legal definitions private enterprises as private individuals reared crops and livestock and provided goods and services of their choice and then sold them for profits that they kept for themselves which increased their disposable income.These were by all legal definition private enterprises which is not allowed in either communism or socialism either the real or bullshit definition.The government propped these private business up and kept them afloat by bailouts  and guaranteed markets which again cannot occur in either socialism and communism both the bullshit or proper definition it can only occur within state capitalism.Maoist China cannot be considered socialist or communist since not all of the sectors of society were run for profit by the state that had centralised planning of the economy as their were  private industries that were run for profit which is not how socialism or communism works.Even though he had an initial spur of intentional genocide at the start of his adminstration and during the Hundred Flowers Campaign and The Cultural Revolution he very rarely encouraged it again with his role in the Great Famine debates making his role in causing the deaths of roughly 55,000,000 people through causing an intentional famine debatable..China is and always has been state capitalist both during the time of Mao to present day especially since it began to open up to foreign markets by 2007 after the Great Recession the difference is the extent of the governments stronghold on the economy with the economic reforms after the death of Mao only been eliminating price controls and allowing private enterprises to be set up as competitors with today 60% of the Chinese economy privately run.Mao like Soviet Russia even though they allowed private farms and industries to exist realised that they private industries and business they encouraged were becoming too powerful and became too successful and thus feared not a revolution of the proletariat working class but by the bourgeoisie capitalist class – the exact opposite of what Marx wanted or predicted.They controlled them by having them heavily regulated,taxed and sidelined to only rural communities out of sight of the rest of the world to suppress competition to their state monopoly thus since they kept them under control they likely earned the erroneous label of communist or socialist by attacking private industries they helped create in the first place thus making historians,Americans and even themselves believe they were communist or socialist when they were not.It is true that Mao did commit intentional mass murder and genocide against business owners at first but this was at first done to those he found particularly corrupt etc and those who refused to hand over business to the government that he believed should be handed over to the state.This also included those that also treated their workers extremely harshly,landlords who treated their tenants harshly alongside of course counter revolutionaries.It was also done to those who got absurdly wealthy through corruption,bribery,tax evasion,selling state secrets and treating their workers and tenants in the case of landlords etc extremly badly.This included outright slaughter to even encouraging peasants to drive them to suicide and was done only to business men who got wealthy through nefarious means by corruption and treating their workers and tenants unjustly by doing everything they could to squeeze every last penny from them,overworking them of even beating them up and just in general treating them like shit.A substantial amount of businessesmen were spared from this genocide primarily those who paid taxes and got wealthy even absurdly wealthy through legal and ethical means meaning it wasn’t so much the fact that businesses men got wealthy at all but how they got wealthy that determined whether they were spared or not from genocide.Thus even those who got absurdly wealthy through ethical means,paid taxes and treated their workers fairly etc were spared from his genocide.Mao didn’t care about private entrepreneurs becoming absurdly wealthy in fact he wanted them to become wealthy and if possible become millionaires or even billionaires because then they would have extra disposable income to then buy more state produced goods.The wealthier they got the more it helped the state sectors of the economy and thus improved GDP.What he did care was if they got wealthy through illegal or unethical means and were thus likely to spin the economy out of control by not contributing by promised buying of state produced goods and paying taxes and were likely to commit treason by committing the five evils thus only those who carried out the five evils and treated workers terribly were killed or imprisoned the rest who abided by his legislation were spared and encouraged to become as wealthy as possible.They were also likely to branch into areas the government did not want thus spinning the economy out of control.Those he killed were unlikely to be loyal to the state by evading tax,treating workers badly,selling secrets,bribery and not allowing the state to gain control of the sectors of the economy they decided was best under their control and thus were unlikely to buy state manufactured goods.Treating workers badly would have made workers much weaker than normal and thus less likely to contribute to the economy by becoming poorer at their jobs and less able to contribute to the economy including buying goods from state owned enterprises with treating tenants harshly and extracting too much out of them through high rents would have done the same.Those spared were thus more likely to abide by the regulations he set down.Being corrupt and getting wealthy through nefarious means would have made them untrustworthy and thus unlikely to abide by the new regulations namely the five evils especially bribery,tax evasion and selling state secrets etc.This was done at first to send a clear message to all future business that if they didn’t abide by regulations they would be consequences if they didn’t though in reality he decided to only punish them lightly by sapping them of resources as to go on another mass genocide and purge the country of all private businessesmen would be both political and economic suicide as he needed private enterprises to grow the economy and to ensure state loyalty and doing so would incite counter revolutionaries.Any instances of these infractions after the genocide were no longer met with genocide but rather with fines and measures to make them bankrupt and imprisonments with it rarely happening at all thanks to the fear struck by the initial genocide.Killing them would have been economic suicide as they were needed to pick up the slack.Genoicide against counter revolutionaries did happen but these were those he deemed were themselves terrorists who were a threat to both economic growth and social stability as most citizens were allowed to criticise the state.The effect of imprisonments and massacre for only the most extreme dissidents had the knock on effect of keeping the less radical citizens under control without the state having to go to even more extreme lengths.The state by imprisoning and murdering only extremist who were a real threat and were prone to terrorism etc were able to keep the rest of society in control without outright control.To ensure state loyalty Mao had to tread lightly in applications of new laws and treatment of the public in terms of what he wanted and what was needed to ensure state loyalty and prevent riots and rebellion from the general public.This is no different than Bush,Obama and Trump era America through the Patriot Act and the treatment of Julian Assange,Edward Snowden,Chelsea Manning at the hand of both RNC/DNC.The Republicans and corporate democrats both capitalists by the way torturing people,carrying out war crimes  and censoring progressives on YouTube and distorting the facts through mainstream media is no different than what was in Soviet Russia,Maoist China and Cuba by the state.Teapot calling kettle black anyone?.The cultural revolution that is the last attempt to purge China of all remaining capitalist business from 1966-1976 was a failure as private enterprises existed in Maoist China from the very start to the very end and they existed right through state capitalist China from 1976 when he died until today.Private businesses in Maoist China worked like this – they were given state owned land,factories and other base materials and were also given quotas which were to be met in order to meet the basic needs of the economy but were allowed to surpass these quotas to become as wealthy as they wanted to increase their own disposable income and that of their workers as the more disposable they earned the more they had to use to buy state run products and services and were encouraged to buy goods etc from other private businesses as well in order to increase their disposable income to buy state made goods in a positive feedback loop that benefited both sides.Private entrepreneurs could get as wealthy as they wanted provided they did not commit treason,commit bribery and tax evasion,did not treat their workers harshly and did not get too greedy and start cutting into the states jurisdiction which would cause imbalances in the economy that could lead to economic crises similar to the Scissor Crises in order to prevent boom and bust cycles and thus famines.The state therefore set up private businesses.Since a significant amount of the private businesses were spared from the initial genocide and private enterprises were set up before the Great Famine 1959-1961 Maoist China was from the very start state capitalist.The fact that they existed both before,during and even after the Cultural Revolution shows that it was a failure.The.Cultural Revolution of 1966-1976 was meant to eliminate all remaining capitalist enterprises from China during the last 10 years of Maos administration and life and it was a failure because they existed after it.The fact that private enterprises existed until the very last 10 years of Maos adminstration and life means and the Cultural Revolution aim of eliminating capitalism was a failure for the following reason – private enterprises existed throughout the the entire 27 years of Maoist China and the only way this was true was because they were tolerated and were set up by Mao himself something which cannot happen in communism or socialism.He had 27 years to purge the country of capitalist enterprises so if he was an actual “communist” or “socialist” dictator then he would have purged the country of all private enterprises within the first few years when he had the chance and resources to do so.He had unlimited,unrestricted control of the economy,society,media for 27 years and had the ability to eliminate them with a whims notice in few years once he came to power –  but he didn’t and after 27 years he was carrying out the final purge in the  form of the Cultural Revolution shows that his “socialist” or “communist” revolution was a complete failure.The fact that private enterprises remained and grew under his 27 years requiring the Cultural Revolution in the first place after 27 years in power shows it wasn’t socialism or communism and if was an actual socialist or communist revolution it was an unsuccessful one altogether.The fact that the whole purpose of the Cultural Revolution that lasted during the last ten years of Maos life was to eliminate the very last vestiges of capitalism including private businesses thus means that during the entire 27 years of Maos reign wherein he had complete control of all of society such as the media,government and economy and he could shut down all private enterprises at a whims notice and yet private enterprises still existed after 27 years because they were set up by him in the first place and let flourish in order to pick up the slack and also create new money from scratch that was to be added to the economy and then through state control gateway theory was needed to fund the state owned businesses etc.Someone with the amount of unrestricted level of power over the economy,society and media such as Mao would have eliminated all private enterprises within the first few years thus rendering the whole purpose of the Cultral Revolution pointless.Therefore using actual logic because private enterprises lasted during the entirety of Maos entire 27 years in power and required the Cultural Revolution shows that his country was not socialist if communist.His communist and socialist revolution was in essence a complete failure in every sense of the word.Think about this we go on about how the government has control over the media etc and infringing in people rights yet the constitution prevents the state gaining complete control but in Maoist China the constitution did not exist and other safeguards did not exist.Mao has complete unrestricted control of the economy and society for 27 years without constitutional safeguards and yet after 27 years private enterprises still existed enough so to warrent the Cultural Revolution which was the states final purge of capitalist enterprises therefore Maoist China was neither socialist or communist it was state capitalist.Maos communist and socialist revolution was thus an absolute failure in every sense of the world as the fact that he had to carry out the Cultural Revolution in the first place after 27 years of unrestricted power of the country shows it was a failure.Since he had to carry out a cultural revolution to purge the country of all capitalist enterprises after 27 years of unrestricted government control shows it was a failure.The Cultural Revolution was less likely about purging the last remaining capitalist entities even though they were tolerated and even set up by the set prior to this showing that the country as state capitalist.Its likely that was the Sino-Soviet split that was responsible for pushing him to the point that he was going all out against his former Russian allies with his advanced age of being 73 years old that spurred it.It was likely due to him falsely believing Khruschevs prediction that communism would be achieved in 1980 that led to Mao deciding to purge the country of the last of the private entrepreneurs he help set it up with it also likely him going against the wishes of Khruschev.Mao disillusioned with the Sino Soviet Split and Khrushchev going towards more liberalisation of the media and the economy of Russia unlike Maos former allies Lenin and Stalin and thus as also as a result of his advancing age and dementia became more psychopathic and more authoritarian than ever.Thus was even before private farmers were propped up private enterprises existed from the very start of Maoist China,they existed throughout Maoist China even during the Great Leap Forward and Great Chinese Famine of 1959-1961 and existed until the very end.Private entrepreneurs that abided by the five anti-laws and were pivotal to developing parts of the economy the state couldn’t and treated workers fairly were allowed to flourish and even set by Maos adminstration and were required by law to meet quotas and were allowed to supersede them as the more profits they made the more disposable income income they had to buy goods from state run enterprises.They had to meet specific quotas but they were allowed to supersede them to increase productivity and in turn profits.The purpose of private business was to get as wealthy as they wanted through ethical means so they and their workers could buy state owned goods that would increase GDP and also allow the entrepreneurs buy more state products as per state control gateway theory.They were not however allowed to corner markets and sector that the state had secured in order to prevent imbalances in the economy.They had to be regulated and had to be prevented from interfering in the sectors the state had control in order to prevent imbalances in the economy that would lead to hyperinflation and recessions both of which would lead to famine.Should any of them begin to flounder they were bailed out and they were guaranteed markets to the state and also to international markets in order to keep them running.The state to keep them running even would carry out legal procedures that would put them at a loss meaning the state would go into debt in order to keep private enterprises afloat with these guaranteed markets to the state and international markets would be ensured these enterprises always had consistent sales and were kept automatically afloat with goods purchased by the state from private enterprises sold on international markets at a profit to ensure the private sector would flourish in order to buy more products from the state that would eliminate debts that the state incurred to bail them out thus eliminating any debts the state incurred in order to bail out private enterprises.Whenever the private business were in danger of going bankrupt for any reason etc they were bailed out to keep them afloat.Furthermore the private enterprises increased new money in the economy as per state control gateway theory and this covered the debts alongside the increased money created by private enterprises selling goods who bought state goods.As a result a small number of key private corporations and private enterprises had formed monopolies in Maoist China similar modern day America whose survival was necessary to keep society and the economy filunctioning forever through what can be considered a form of cronyism and corruption with them having extreme power and influence on the state that rendered all small time businesses unable to compete.This system of guarenteed markets and bailouts is exactly the same as that carried out by the American government and similar modern day state capitalist societies.This system of keeping private enterprises afloat through guarenteed markets from the government and bailouts for private industries by the government to keep them afloat is the exact opposite of both communism and socialism both the real definitions or bullshit definitions because the real definitions of socialism and communism cannot allow private industries to exist in the first place and the bullshit definitions of communism and socialism involve the state quashing out,going out of its way to shut down and eliminate private industries therefore there is no possible way for Maoist China  to have been either communist or socialist they had to be capitalism namely state capitalism therefore all deaths,censorship and human rights abuses under Mao are now attributed to capitalism namely state capitlism.Private farmers were particularly initiated and kept afloat because they were needed to feed primarily the rural communities who were most at risk of starvation in the case of famines.If Mao did carry out a communist or socialist revolution then it was an absolute failure in every sense of the word.Please explain this fact how can a country be considered socialist or communist when the state exists,when private enterprises exists,when the amount of private enterprises and its control of the economy increases under their adminstrations and when the state encourages and props up the formation and development of private enterprises,guarantees them markets and profits and bails them out in order to ensure they stay afloat.If they are communist or socialist then American under the rule of the corporate Democrats,Republicans and both Bush,Obama and Trump administrations are communist and socialist.Any food shortages that occurred after the Great Famine of 1959-1961 were the direct result of poor weather and other natural occurrences outside of the control of the state which could have occurred under a free market system and also would have been more severe and had higher death tolls had private farmers not existed.These food shortages and famines had almost always had to do with the climate of Maoist China,pests and other geopolitical and environmental factors outside of the states control.Thus the existence of private farmers was thus allowed and encouraged and ensured through guarenteed markets and bailouts to prevent severe death tolls during famines.Thus the state went out of its way to ensure their survival through bailouts and guaranteed markets and to prevent famines imported food.Had private farmers not existed then the famines would have been exponentionally worse and as a result the state went out of its way to ensure their survival.They were given bailouts if they fell into economic trouble and guaranteed markets to ensure they stayed afloat as if they went bankrupt,out of business then the economy would have crashed and people would have died due to starvation.Thus the state had to go out of its way to keep private farms and businesses running and existing in the first place by encouraging them to be set up but regulated them to prevent them getting too big and powerful that they would become a threat to the state run business.Thus private business especially farmers encouraged by the state were set up,funded and kept afloat by the state in order to prevent severe death tolls during famines through guarenteed markets and bailouts..These private businesses were however punished severely if they treated there workers badly,carried out tax evasion,bribery,tax evasion,fraud,theft of state assets,or leakage of state economic secrets known as the five evils.The  reason they were regulated and punished was if they got greedy then they usually got there from mistreating workers as well if they got too greedy they would eat into the states profits and thus would cause imbalances in the economy and would in fact hinder and devastate economic growth much like the Scissor Crisis in Russia.The rate of economic growth for private farmers,merchants was rising but at a stable rate but greedy entrepreneurs wanted to get more money more quickly and this would cause imbalances and recessions in the economy that would even eventually cause these greedy private farmers to lose all of their wealth or would put workers in state run farms and factories out of work and thus lead to poverty and thus famines which the state did not want.Thus the state had to regulate them.Had the economy been completely degregulated then boom and bust cycles would have caused havoc with regards to the price of grain meaning the economy had to regulated to the extent that it was.Regulation thus kept the Soviet  economy growing and the wealth of private entrepreneurs rising at a stable sustainable rate and prevented boom and bust cycles that the economy could not handle as if it occurred then it lead to mass unemployment,poverty and famine which was done to encourage state loyalty.Growth in the private sector would still have occurred and was occurring and increasing every year exponentially but at a stable and sustainable rate rather than happening too fast to the point that it would cause imbalances like the Scissor Crises and boom and bust cycles.At the same time growth in the state sector was also undergoing stable sustainable exponential growth.The rate of growth in income and wages for both private and state sector workers and entrepreneurs was rising exponentially every year at a stable and sustainable rate.Considering China was prone to famine due to poor weather and an unpredictable climate as well as pests etc as well as other environmental and geopolitical factors outside of the states control it could not handle a boom or bust cycle and thus regulated business to prevent them getting too powerful too quickly that would plunge the economy into a boom and bust cycle something it could not afford to occur at otherwise it would lead to poverty and famine.A boom and bust cycle and similar imbalances similar to the Scissor Crises would increase the chance of famines occurring due to rises in the price of food something they wanted to avoid.Furthermore if America etc on the other hand suffered a recession in a boom and bust cycle due to deregulation of the economy due to the American governments tendencies towards deregulation it would ensure that Maoist China would become an economic superpower which was what Mao wanted.The only way to become an economic superpower and remain an economic superpower indefinitely is to have the economy regulated through a command or planned economy which can only occur in state capitalism not socialism or communism but a planned economy in socialism and free market systems like state capitalism other types can suffice while all of the other competitor economies worldwide are unregulated markets that allow for the economy to continuously go through boom and bust cycles that even when they reach their height of each boom it is also different and not static and the higher it goes the greater the recession while your economy through regulation constantly goes upwards forever into infinity while everyone elses economy stays in constant state of boom and bust.It is also is the only way to eliminate poverty as it prevents boom and bust cycles and prevents hyperinflation and ensures that GDP,wages and ones incomes rises exponentially every year.This guarentees that the GDP,income of both private and state workers increases exponentially each year forever.Guarenteed markets,private businessesmen using extra disposable income combined with stable economic growth allowed the state to save enough money or at least go into small amounts of debt to carry out bailouts and buy crops etc from countries across the world to prevent or at least lessen famines and also ensure people survived to then produce and buy more to then pay back and cancel debts through extra profits to ensure stability.Maoist China like Soviet Russia through this saw one of the greatest rises in GDP of any other country in the mid to late 20th century.If a boom or bust cycle and recession occurred due to greedy entrepreneurs then the government could not afford to buy food etc from international markets and this would lead to starvation and further recessions.Thus business were regulated and punished for the five evils and getting greedy.The type of economy was a command economy where the state had complete control of the economy which cannot occur in socialism or communism only state capitalism as a planned economy would allow the workers and citizens including private entrepreneurs to have a democratic say in the planning something which would lead to deregulation and thus boom and bust cycles.The government wanted the economy to be strong and have strong growth by creating a balance between the growth of both the state run sectors and private sectors much like Stalinist Russia as too much growth in either state run sectors and private sectors would lead to imbalances and thus stunt economic growth and even lead to recessions,crashes and then boom and bust cycles.The Chinese government tried to avoid boom and bust cycles and recessions by regulating the private sector and stabilising growth in both the state run sector and private sectors because if they did then their economy would outcompete and grow faster and have a higher GDP than the West particularly America where government regulation didn’t exist and thus was prone to boom and bust cycles,recessions etc which would allow the Chinese economy to grow faster and outcompete that of the its western competitors as a recession caused by lack of government regulation in America etc would cause their economy to nosedive while the Chinese economy would continue to rise continuously thus allowing it to become a global superpower.The government can only do this in state capitalism and not communism or socialism.This why the state still tries to regulate the economy in modern times especially in modern state capitalist economies including Brazil,America,Norway,Finland etc its to ensure stable contionous growth,prevent recessions and boom and bust cycles and why countries with more sensible government regulations in Europe,Austrailia were virtually uneffected by the 2008 Global Recession and 2020 recession while Americas etc economies tanked and are still recovering after more than a decade.Its also which you have many middle class and the minority of poor people in modern China still revering Mao and want to return to the days of Maoist China or at least a less tyrannical version as you have alot of entrepreneurs in modern China getting absurdly wealthy through unethical means and many people getting screwed over and unable to gain an economic advantage.They want private businesses to exist but they want them regulated to prevent them getting too powerful through cronyism and eliminate boom and bust cycles.Regulations that existed in countries such as Maoist China that stunted the growth of small emergent businesses was the result of cronyism on part of state capitalism similar to America,Soviet Russia in order to ensure that a small number of private business that were key to the functioning of the economy stay afloat through bailouts and guarenteed markets as they contribute billions of dollars to the economy every year with the government doing everything to ensure they stay afloat including putting in regulations that shut down competitors in the form of any new or existing small companies.This why the myth that Maoist China was shutting down all private business and killing all of them existed when it wasn’t private businesses were allowed to flourish but only those that were key to the economy and not ones that state wanted infringing on its territory and profits and stability of the economy with the state deciding which ones to allow to be set up with them deciding which ones could be set up and what they sell and what limitations they had to prevrnt the economy going out of control.Allowing them to be set up without regulation and control would have caused an endless cycles of boom and bust cycles something China could not afford due to its geopolitical and environmental factors that would cause another famine and also to ensure economic growth would rise exponentially forever in a stable growth curve in order to surpass America and Europe as an economic superpower.Allowing for the economy to be completely degregulated would have caused more and even greater famines than that of 1959-1961 causing  the deaths of millions of more lives due to unsustainable fluctuations in the price of grain,meat etc.Famines and food shortages did occur after 1961 but it was always due to to poor,weather,pests and also limited arable land in the country which was out of the control of Mao with the existence of private farms alongside importing food ensuring that any food shortages and famines that occurred resulted in significantly lower death tolls that would have occurred without their existence or in an completely unregulated economy.Command economies were necessary over planned economies and unregulated free market economies as at the time given the geopolitical and environmental factors and to an extent technological capacity as it was necessary to tightly control the economy as any imbalances and boom and bust cycles would lead to hyperinflation,skyrocking prices for grain and meat and thus lead to poverty and consistent famine.Without regulation the price of grain and meat would have skyrocketed and other economic effects would have plunged Maoist China into even worse famines.Adopting a completely degregulated fee market,anarcho capitalist,libertarian economy would have caused hyperinflation,imbalances in the economy and continuous cycles of boom and bust cycles which would have severely exacerbated food shortages leading to outright consistent famine all year long and existing famines would have been much worse leading to exponentially higher death tolls.It would have negatively affected the countries ability to import food thus exacerbating food shortages and leading to consistent famines year after year due to skyrocking food prices.Considering Maoist China was already prone to famines due to poor weather and lack of arable land it had to install command economies to prevent boom and bust cycles and inflation which would exacerbated the problem.This is why private farmers were also given bailouts and guarenteed markets as they were key to the stability of both the economy and society should they go bankrupt then then the entire economy and society would collapse in on itself.Even today in China agriculture and the economy is still heavily regulated and controlled by the state for the same reason.Private enterprises had to meet certain prequisites in order to be allowed to function.The private business were given guaranteed markets to the state and also local citizens and even the state buying goods and exporting them as well as them being bailed out as like Soviet Russia private enterprises were key in keeping the Chinese economy stable to prevent imbalances.Private enterprises were allowed to flourish in Maoist China because they were key to the growth of the economy and preventing famines just like Leninist and Stalinist Russia and were key to developing the economy.The relationship of guarenteed markets,bailouts and also corruption that exists in modern day state capitalist America is exactly the same as Maoist China as you had a small number of private corporate monopolies that were key to the economies functioning and they were given guarenteed markets and bailouts because of they failed and went bankrupt then the Chinese economy would also nosedive and famines would become rampant with these corporations being kept afloat through whatever means even corruption in order to prevent poverty and famine with it thus a good form of corruption that was necessary to prevent outright famines and economic collapse unlike that modern America that is used to ensure perpetual warfare,environmental degradation and needless deaths every year.Yes Mao was corrupt but it was necessary to save lives of the average citizen with their genocide and imprionment of dissenters and corrupt businessesmen done against those they feared would endanger the economic growth that beniffited the prolitariet.Corruption that existed was done to keep private industries afloat and was no different than the corruption by the RNC/DNC involving Congress,big pharma,big oil and the military industrial complex.Shutting down all private enterprises would have both economic and political suicide and would have led to further deaths from famines with them bailed out when they were in trouble and they were given guaranteed markets to ensure economic survival and that they stayed afloat at all times.In order to qualify for such assistance,businessmen must had agreed to institute labor-management consultative councils and to “democratize” their operations in other ways suggested by the government.According to
Ronald Hsia in ”Private Enterprise in Communist China –  In 1934 Mao Tse-tung repeatedly expressed his adamance that private enterprises remained indispensable in the economic development of China under New Democracy,a view expressed since in the Common Program and elaborated in the “Tentative Regulations Governing Private Enterprise”.Its continuity can be seen from Maos prime minister and thus first in command Zao Chou EnLai’s statement on February 1953:We must rally all private industrialists and merchants whose activities are beneficial to the national economy and people’s livelihoods,and enable them to develop their constructive potentialities under the leadership of the state-owned sector and unified plan of the state..This is hardly the words of a socialist or communist dictators second in command or the actions of a communist or socialist country.This can be found through a quick google search by copying and pasting that quote and having AI scan Apollo for it once all documents are integrated into it.In fact it’s the same as what goes on in the land of the free America under a Republican or corporate Democrat.If Maoist China was socialist or communist country then America is and always has been either communist or socialist. How can a country be considered communist or socialist when the government encourages the formation of private businesses and does everything it can and go out of its way to keeps them afloat through bailouts and guaranteed markets?If they are communist or socialist then American under the rule of the corporate Democrats,Republicans and both Bush,Obama and Trump administrations are communist and socialist.Private enterprises,coops and state run industries thus existed during Maoist China which cannot occur in both socialism and communism only in capitalism namely state capitalism.In reality Mao like Stalin and Lenin was not a socialist or communist he was a capitalist who believed in it being both highly regulated by the state and also it being fair and not corrupt much like both Lenin and Stalin.Again according to Ronald Hsia in ”Private Enterprise in Communist China – In pursuing its course toward socialism,the Chinese Communist regime had paradoxically not only tolerated but actively fostered private capitalism.Its motive,according to Mao-Tsung,was to serve the immediate needs of China’s underdeveloped economy:because the Chinese economy is underdeveloped,anything contributing to its development is desireable;because the economic activities of the bourgeoisie can promote economic development,they must be encouraged.To remedy the backwardsness of the Chinese economy,the Central People’s government is determined to industrialise China rapidly.To this end it emphasis the development of heavy industry,which is entrusted to the state-owned sector of the economy.Once the sector is not yet sufficiently strong to develop industry as a whole,it must concentrate its effort,for a time at least heavy industry.During this period the development of light industry must be left principally to private industry.Simarily,in the field of commerce,the state trading companies can deal only in those commodities that are essential to price stability and the people’s livelihoods.The main responibility for developing commerce,particularly retail and urban-rural commerce,must be entrusted to private merchants.in as much as private enterprise remains indispensable in light industry and trade, it is logical for the government to foster it. Since, however, private capitalism, if unrestricted, might interfere with the over-all plan for economic development, the government retains tight control over its activities to ensure that they will benefit the national economy. The present article is concerned with reviewing and interpreting the government’s control measures affecting private enterprises.Government control of private enterprises is intended to subject them wholly to the government and to the state-owned sector of the economy. It achieves this aim by measures which (1) demonstrate the economic as well as the political power of the government, (2) show the readiness of the government and/or the state-owned sector to help private enterprise, and (3)organize the latter so as to facilitate government control.The outstanding demonstration of the government’s economic power was afforded by its price-stabilization program, which employed the superior financial strength of the state trading companies to drive speculative businessmen into bankruptcy. Its political power was best illustrated by its relentless persecution of private entrepreneurs during the “five-anti” campaign,which was essentially intended to bring private businessmen to heel and to keep them in line with the government’s schemes. By and large, businessmen found guilty of any of the “five evils”—i.e., bribery, tax evasion, fraud, theft of state assets, or leakage of state economic secrets—suffered punishment designed to sap their financial resources sufficiently to make them dependent on the state-owned sector of the economy.At the same time, the government has evinced readiness to come to the rescue of private entrepreneurs when they find themselves in difficulty. In order to qualify for such assistance, businessmen must first agree to institute labor-management consultative councils and to “democratize” their operations in other ways suggested by the government..Mao Zedong allowed private business to exist from the start of his administration to the very end due to the economy being underdeveloped and was encouraged but was sidelined to primarily to rural areas to pick up the slack and developed the slack in areas where the state could not develop while the state controlled the economy in urban areas such as major cities.Cooperatives did exist but they did not consist of a large or substantial percentage of the economy.The private enterprises that were shut down were usually those that carried out illegal criminal behavior.The fact that these private enterprises were bailed out and given guarenteed markets shows that Maoist China was neither communism nor socialism it was state capitalism.Most if not all scholars state that in all of these “socialist” hellholes such as Maoist China the majority of the workers had no real meaningful control over the workplace but rather the state did with them all having visible private enterprises.Furthermore the actions of the state were not democratically decided upon as all taxes,regulations and laws were decided by the state without democratic input.A command economy was used which is undemocratic in nature and thus not socialism.This is not how socialism works this is how state capitalism workers.Democratic control was only relegated to the small number of cooperatives that existed in otherwards democratic control by workers was only confined to cooperatives and how they ran which were a small percentage of businesses and not within the confines of state run corporations and of course not within the confines of private corporations with all actions of the state being authoritarian undemocratic control meaning the workers or population could not vote on any taxes,regulations etc.Since the workers had no democratic control of their workplace and no democratic role in the decisions made by the government and cooperatives were a small percentage of the economy and the economy was controlled predominantly by both state run corporations and private corporations run by private entrepreneurs it could not be classed as socialism.It was not communism due to the presence of private enterprises,state control and money.The use of the term collectivised and working together with in terms of propaganda and also state run industries such as farms and factories in Maoist China etc was likely used to brainwash people especially the ignorant or used in the context of working together against other state run enterprises,cooperatives and private enterprises with if possible the term collectivised used in the context of collectivised working rather than collectively run and operated wherein they were still operated by state run buerocrats in place of a CEO but the work was collectivised but the profits were not shared equally between all workers as in cooperatives rather they were paid according to their time spent each week etc similar to how large private farmers in modern times pay immigrants and other labourers etc fixed prices to harvest crops etc rather than sharing profits.Using the term communism and socialism was used to pull the wool over the eyes of its citizens and believe that they would one day get fully classless communism or socialism buy in reality they got state capitalism.The use of the terms working together etc was propaganda to instill morale and increase state loyalty and productivity like how modern day private corporations organise corporate get togethers,meeting,seminars,retreates and events to promote teamwork and improve worker morale you know those cheesy events,seminary’s etc that use slogans like “theres no I in Team” to improve productivity and about working together for the common good within ones corporation with it the same collectivised mentality propaganda in oother state propaganda in corporate America etc is exactly the same groupthink collectivised mentality propaganda as in Soviet Russia and Maoist China.China is and always has been even to this day state capitalist ever since Mao Zedong came into office because private enterprises and private business were allowed to exist to pick up the slack and allow profits of private entrepreneurs to spent on state owned goods and services – something which is not allowed in ether socialism or communism either the bullshit definition or proper definition.The evidence that Maoist China was communist or socialist does not exist its pure fantasy.The evidence that it was state capitalist does exist therefore it was state capitalist.There seems to this indication that Mao is the poster child of the evils of communism in China but the reality is that he was to varying degrees like Stalin and Lenin national stains.All administrations after him had to and began increase civil liberties to varying degrees like Russia due to the rise of tellocomunications and also more benevolent administrations.There are still restrictions on civil liberties but it’s nowhere near as bad as Mao.Like Stalin and  Lenin,Mao has been demonised as the tyrant he was starting from the successive adminstrations the level of civil liberties people had waxed and waned and alternating to different degrees but were never as bad as under Mao with veneration of Mao allowed  by remaining supporters allowed to ensure state loyalty and prevent coups.The Tiananmen Square Massacre was quite possibly the last major event wherein the Chinese state decided to openly slaughter its own citizens back in 1989.Ever since then there has been major changes within the Chinese Communist Party to liberalise it more due to the rise of the television and the internet.The rise of television,the internet and YouTube has made it impossible for the Chinese government to return to the authoritarian days of Mao etc.Yes they have made attempts to censor the internet but this had been largely futile and is failing with the censorship of the Chinese state of YouTube,Facebook etc no longer different than corporate censorship of progressives and non corporate donors carried out by Twitter,YouTube etc.Teapot calling kettle black?After Maos death there were three waves of Democratic reforms that gradually introduced more democratic reforms to the country.Its not as democratic as most other countries but its way better than in Maos time,much like Russia under Putin is much more democratic than under Lenin and Stalin but not as democratic as it can be.Like Soviet Russia,China after the death of Mao had to democratise especially in the face of tellocomunications and influences from the West with this waxing and waning under each administration.Planned economies that involve democratic input is one of the reasons for China eliminating poverty.Thus it is in fact democracy inherent in planned economies not the free market system that has been responsible for the economic success of China that has seen its poverty rate drop to nearly zero coupled with a democratic planned economy with Russia being less democratic in comparison.This use of democratic planned economies has been responsible for poverty rates dropping to zero in most other planned economies..Mao like Lenin and Stalin of Soviet Russia was considered by most of the Communist Party especially all succeeding administrations to be an national stain and embarrassment but they only allowed worship of him to please the fanatics who idealised what he represented much like Lenin etc.Some allowed his worship to ensure loyalty like that of Lenin.Again like post Stalinist politicians were allowed to venerate Mao but only the those who extremists who were likely to carry out a coup to reinstall his policies are improsoned.Executions etc still occurred alongside incidents like the Tiannamen square incident which was initiated by students mourning the death of Hu Yaobong who alongside Deng Xiangping were the most democrat members of the Chinese Party.This shows that there was conflict amongst members of the Chinese Communist Party and not a hive mind.In fact the Tiannamen Square incident that is you know where students began protesting the actions of government etc was caused primarily by the death of Hua Yaobang both of whom the students were mourning the death of Hu Yuaobang and Deng Xiaoping and rebelling against the Communist parties remaining autocrats.December 1978, Deng Xiaoping became the new paramount leader of China replacing Chairman Hua Gofeng and started the “Boluan Fanzheng” program which gradually dismantled the Maoist policies associated with the Cultural Revolution, and brought the country back to order.Deng together with his allies then began a new phase of China by initiating the historic Reforms and Opening-up program.In 1981, the CCP declared and acknowledged that the Cultural Revolution was wrong and was “responsible for the most severe setback and the heaviest losses suffered by the people, the country, and the party since the founding of the People’s Republic.”In contemporary China, differing views exist about the Cultural Revolution.Some view it negatively; among some of them, it is referred to as the “ten years of chaos”.According to Gao Mobo others, particularly members of the working class, view it positively.Gao Mobo also by the way through his various YouTube videos,books and even his Wikipedia page offers a more shall we say balanced and less biased view of Mao Zedong.The Cultural Revolution was likely like Stalins purge of private business during his final years was a result of a paranoid and delusional old man trying to retain his power in face of the resistence from Khruschev etc who had gone away with authoritarianism.Its likely that the need to lift China out of the Medival Ages was the reason for his authoritarianism and genocidal tendencies and also lack of foresight with regards to the a Great Leap Forward was a genuine attempt to actually help the country and its people but that doesn’t still justify genocide.Many scholars such as Philip Short in Mao:A Life reject comparisons to Mao to other dictators such as Hiltler and Lenin by saying that whereas the deaths caused by Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia were largely systematic and deliberate, the overwhelming majority of the deaths under Mao were unintended consequences of famine.Short stated that landlord class were not exterminated as a people due to Mao’s belief in redemption through thought reform,and compared Mao with 19th-century Chinese reformers who challenged China’s traditional beliefs in the era of China’s clashes with Western colonial powers.Short writes that “Mao’s tragedy and his grandeur were that he remained to the end in thrall to his own revolutionary dreams.He freed China from the straitjacket of its Confucian past, but the bright Red future he promised turned out to be a sterile purgatory.In their 2013 biography, Mao:The Resl Story,Alexander V. Pantsov and Steven I. Levine assert that Mao was both “a successful creator and ultimately an evil destroyer” but also argue that he was a complicated figure who should not be lionised as a saint or reduced to a demon, as he “indeed tried his best to bring about prosperity and gain international respect for his country.Mao is demonised by many in China for the effects of the Great Leap Forward and The Hundred Flowers Campaign and Cultural Revolution despite their still modern day supporters of the Cultural Revolution but there are also those who to this worship and venerate him as he did improve the conditions of women by outlawing practises such as foot binding,female circumsicion,widow chastity and also giving them the same opportunities in education and working rights for women in factories,medicine and allowing to learn to read and write.There is also the fact that he laid the groundwork for bringing China several centuries from the Middle Ages and into the 20th and 21st centuries and managed to unify a country which was in a civil war for decades of not centuries into one cohesive state..For these reasons there are still many Chinese people especially older generations that stil in the 21st century still venerate Mao.Most people in modern day China is polarised between those who venerate him for lifting the country into the 20th century as well as improving the lives of women and those who demonise him for his brutish force.Maoism has fallen out of favor within the Chinese Communist Party, beginning with Deng Xiaoping reforms in 1978. Deng believed that Maoism showed the dangers of “ultra-leftism”, manifested in the harm perpetrated by the various mass movements that characterized the Maoist era. In Chinese communism, the term “left” can be considered a euphemism for Maoist policies. However, Deng stated that the revolutionary side of Maoism should be considered separate from the governance side, leading to his famous epithet that Mao was “70% right, 30% wrong”.Chinese scholars generally agree that Deng’s interpretation of Maoism preserves the legitimacy of Communist rule in China but simultaneously criticizes Mao’s brand of economic and political governance.Mao is only venerated in the form of posters in a few public arenas but not encouraging national or individual worship.The official stance is that he is praised as a liberator but demonised as a savage brutal dictator making him both a national stain and a national hero at the same time much like Lenin and Stalin.Decades after his death Mao still remains a controversial figure to Chinese people.So controversial that he is almost never discussed by political pundits,journalists and even Chinese vloggers,journalists etc fairly and painted as a one dimensional cartoon villain and considered almost a taboo and national shame as he despite his savagery was flawed and had been given a country with a better economic and technological standing would have been less brutish or autocratic.The best way to describe Maos flawed nature is that:The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions as despite his savagery it was done purely for the good of the Chinese people and to lift China out of the Medievil ages.This is in contrast to Pol Pot,Ho Chi Min,Stalin and also to a degree Lenin who were bloodthirsty savages who were openly savages.The level of freedoms of citizens in China has waned and waned under each administration after Mao.The only way to achieve true freedoms and civil liberties in China under and other countries under the control of Communist Parties including modern times is through the installing of democratic of democratic safeguards and processes to prevent the state infringing in the rights of the individual.China has out of necessity is a planned economy that is where the state has control of the economy through regulations and government programmes and as a result is one the few countries in the world to have its poverty rate drop to almost zero.Extreme poverty has been been all but eliminated but there is still some way to go in eliminating remaining poverty.So yeah poverty does still exist but it’s nowhere near as bad as the rest of the world or what it was in Maos time and its dropping exponentially every year.Even during Maos adminstration from the very start of 1949 GDP growth and growth in wages were rising exponentially the reforms of 1978 only focused it more on international markets.After 1978 state owned enterprises still were the predominant form of capital investment with private enterprises being a minority.Private corporations like those in Maoist China did exist and still do exist but they are are highly regulated and controlled by the state which is American terms “socialism”.The private enterprises from 1978-2022 are those that are heavily regulated by the state and consist of a minority of the economy.Deregulated free market capitalism which is what conservatives likes does not exist in China and it never had existed in China.The type of capitalism that has lifted  hundreds of millions of people out of poverty in China is state capitalism that is one that the state has a majority control of the economy and controls the economy through a planned or command – the very same state capitalism that was present in Maoist China.It had shifted from a command economy to a planned economy since the death of a Mao and had thus seen much better results in economic growth and civil liberties.This also includes large social welfare programmes.Government control of the economy existed after Mao but it was relaxed and involved more democratic input from citizens with state owned corporations still a majority holder in the economy.Similar countries that have reduced poverty to almost zero with the adoption of planned economies include Communist Vietnam,Cambodia,Laos,Myanmar etc and this had been done by planned economies controlled by the government and large scale government programmes including large scale social welfare programmes also known as “socialism” with capitalism and private enterprises playing only a minor role in this.China is home to 109 native Fortune Global  500 companies but only 15% of them roughly 17 of them are private corporations the remaining 92 corporations are state owned corporations thus making it neither communist or socialism it is state capitalist just like Maoist China.The majority of the Chinese economy is controlled by state owned corporations you know what idiot Americans call “socialism”.Roughly 60% of the Chinese economy is dominated by state owned corporations that generated 40% of the countries GDP with primarily foreign private multinationals that account for 40% of the economy  accounting for the remaining 60% of the GDP.Both of these things the government gaining majority control of the economy and planning the economy and social welfare is responsible for lifting hundreds of millions of people out poverty.These two facts have been true since 1949-2022 both during and after Maoist China.These two things the government gaining control of the economy and social welfare are what conservatives in America consider socialism – therefore by conservative logic socialism has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty not capitalism.It cannot be capitalism because the country is run by the Communist Party and the majority of the countries economy is managed by state owned corporations.If this not socialism then Americans are suffering from cognitive dissonance by picking and choosing when something is socialist and when something is capitalism especially considering China whose economy is majority controlled by state owned corporations and involves government planning and regulations and social welfare etc is capitalist while Venezuela can be considered socialist when the majority of the economy(roughly 66-71%) is under control of private corporations and the minority – 33% is under control of state owned corporations.In reality “communism/socialism” through the guidance and control of large scale government programmes including social welfare etc and planned economies controlled by the government and not capitalism has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty across Asia and India while capitalism had done nothing but exacerbated it across America and Africa.Capitalism has had almost minimal influence on lifting out the hundreds of millions in China out poverty.Communism and socialism will again lift a further four billion people out of poverty across the world through me.It is technically state driven capitalism that has done this which is not free market capitalism meaning conservatives lose as it is the same state driven capitalism they hate and the same driven capitalism that existed in Maoist China.China was already lifting hundreds of millions  of people out of poverty before 1978-2000 under Mao before it became “capitalist” and the majority of the economy is owned and managed by the state owned sector.In otherwards it is government intervention and social programmes not capitalism that is responsible for eliminating poverty in China.India still has a significant amount of its population poor with roughly 269,000,000 living in poverty is because of numerous factors such as illiteracy,higher populations,gender inequality,corruption,faulty economic reforms as well as them keeping outdated social systems such as the caste system wherein one is born into a social caste and has no chance due to society of ever being able to rise up from one class to another simply because of what class and family they were born into.Then of course unlike China there seems to a larger percentage of private corporations in control of the economy with the state having only control of key sectors such as oil and gas etc but the vast majority of sectors being privatised.Furthermore India claims it is a net exporter of food it is able to feed itself but the reality is it is a net importer of food it like China is unable to feed itself.Its geology consists of deserts,mountains including the Himalayas and protected forests and its weather consists of the monsoons that can cause major flooding with on the opposite side the monsoons also important to agriculture as it feeds the crops with droughts also a problem which have over the course of its history killed tens of millions of people with it also having severe cyclones.This and the fact that it has varied soil types and ecosystems ranging from deserts etc makes it unsuitable to feed such a large population.India needs a command or planned economy and unfortunately in 1991 it adopted a deregulated free market economy,This may have played a role in eliminating poverty but it hasn’t eliminated it yet and is nowhere close to doing so.Furthermore due to its environmental factors this short boom that has lasted since 1991 roughly 31 years ago will eventually go bust and you will have hyperinflation,skyrockeying food prices and mass starvation and more people dying of hunger especially the hundreds of millions already poor with and all the people lifted out of poverty being dragged back into poverty again.Most of the advances have been to poor regulations which has like China left India with large ghost towns of mansions and apartments that are sitting empty.However China has since 2018 through government intervention has ensured that most of these cities are occupied wheras India has still many empty cities to fill.Poor housing in China was built with no regulations but has since been demolished but those in India were filled with poor people,then later collapsed and then killed dozens of people.The difference between Chinese ghost towns and Indian ghost towns is that those occupied were built with regulations.China has eliminated poverty through government intervention,government programmes and planning and probably will have no poverty for the coming decades of not centuries wheras India  will on the other hand will always have a significant number of its population forever unemployed and in poverty and will also suffer a major bust cycle that will not only cause all of those lifted out of poverty to once again become poor,but also exacerbate its current poverty problem.At first China through corruption built large amounts of buildings on the cheap with zero regulation with them almost falling apart and unsafe to occupy.These have been either abandoned from the market or even demolished and bulldozed with them also playing a key role in the current economic crises in China.India on the other hand has pushed people into these including poor people and these buildings built with zero regulations and shoddy material have collapsed killing dozens and hundreds of people.Others have been demolished because they are just to unsafe to inhabit.Although his intentional genoicide against landlords etc was intentional the Great Leap Forward accounts for the majority of his death toll meaning he could have carried out the Great Leap forward without it being a failure and of possible its failure as his great plan to revolutionise the country is what probably led him to crackdown on more of his opponents.There are so many ways the Great Leap Forward could have been successful such as training people to become steel workers rather than having farmers become steel workers,investing in mechanisation and automation,importing people from Soviet Russia etc hiring actual agronomists such as those involved in the Green Revolution which had just started at the time of the Great Famine in the 1950s and even utilising  Aquaponics etc which was 2,000 years old by then and was being researched by NASA at the time and having private farmers stay,have cooperative farmers utilised instead of collectives and private farms since the profit motive would have ensured they would have increased productivity just like private farms,not killed sparrows,used chemical fertilisers and so on.Its believed the Great Leap Forward stemmed from the fact that he wanted to increase the country GDP quickly and thus profits to pay back billion dollar loans to Soviet Russia etc.Mao,Lenin etc could have utilised aquaponics that was already 2,000 years old at that point which can produce 6-10 times more yields while allowing all land to be reforested and negated the need for private farms allowing the state to produce more than enough to feed everyone and been immune to droughts etc with cooperative farms used.Cooperatives since they have all profits shared equally amongst all workers would have encouraged to increase productivity through the profit motive.The country has opened up to foreign markets but it is still the same state capitalist system of Maoist China that regulates the economy.Private landlords and businessmen need not have been slaughtered they could have been converted into cooperatives etc to ensure workers had democratic control and rise in wages.There are so many ways he could have “socialised” the country without resorting to mass genocide which is why despite his advancements he is considered a national stain on the country and an embarrassment to the Chinese Communist Party with most presidents of China and high ranking members of the Communist Party deride him as the tyrant he was and like Soviet Russia a process of de-Maoism was started after his death with him only allowed to be venerated by ardent followers to ensure state loyalty.There were incidents of public killings and executions etc after his death but it was nowhere as near as bad as Mao and the Chinese government has not killed anywhere as much as under Mao with them only doing so when pushed to the very extremes.The Communist Party of China’s is not a hive mind collective it never has been.Much like that of Soviet Russia the Communist Party of China contained people of different thought processes and levels of extremes of communist ideals that were constantly at odds with each other over how much power should be placed in the power of its citizens and the state even during Maos administration..North Vietnam was like Maoist China state capitalist as the government in the form of Ho Chi Minh and Lao Dong Party decided to model its economy on that of both Maoist China and Soviet Russia with private farmers and state owned corporations that can only exist in state capitalism.North Korea as we will establish later on  has private enterprises that are dynastic in nature by being handed down from one generation to the next similar in a way to those in Maoist China thus making it state capitalist.It had private enterprises that were handed down from one generation with it even throughout the entirety of its socialist or communist regime despite its best efforts at eliminating capitalism it was unable to do so out of economic necessity..

State Capitalism in Khmer Rouge Cambodia:
In Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge administration despite private businesses abolished in favour of state owned enterprises,cooperative and food rations replacing money all land was state owned state run farms with some being private plots of land including those private land by private homes and collectively owned land owned by cooperative members but operated by private farmers who were allowed to grow their own choice of crops and livestock for profit in the form of extra food rations.Cooperstives were divided into “low level” cooperatives that in which land and agricultural implements were lent by peasants to the community but remained legally their private property with them also being “high level cooperatives” in which private property was abolished and the harvest became the collective property of the peasants with most farms and enterprises being state owned ones.Even though coops did exist and money and private property rights were abolished small instances of private property and government run farms did exist making it neither communist or socialist.Money did not exist but was replaced by food rations with private property rights and private farming businesses were encouraged to again like Soviet Russia and Maoist China increase productivity with people engaging in this to gain extra food food rations as a replacement for money based profit.These private farms were private enterprises and thus Cambodia cannot be classed as socialist or communist despite the fact that  most farms and enterprises being state owned ones private farms did exist where farmers in order to increase productivity to like Maoist China and Soviet Russia the death tolls of famines.Even though coops did exist and money and private property rights were abolished small instances of private property and government run farms did exist making it neither communist or socialist.Money did not exist but was replaced by food rations with private property rights and private farming businesses were encouraged to again like Soviet Russia and Maoist China increase productivity to prevent famines with people engaging in this to gain extra food food rations as a replacement for money based profit.These privately run farms where people farmed rice,livestock etc for profit in the form of extra food rations were by all legal definitions private enterprises and thus Cambodia cannot be classed as communist or socialist because private enterprises cannot be allowed in socialism or communism both the real or bullshit definition.The farmers owned private land and grew and reared what they wanted and at the same time sold that meat and crops for profit in the form of extra food rations from the state and customers.The government set these private farms up and rewarded productive farmers getting more rations both from the state and from paying customers bartering one form of food rations for another.They were given guarenteed markets and to an extent bailed out to keep them afloat due to how important they were.Thus the government encouraged private enterprises in the form of private farms with private farmers using the ability to earn extra food rations as compensation for securing private land and working on that private land to increase productivity.The farmers were given private land through obsolete money and trading away a set amount of rations which they were allowed to grow and rear whatever crops and livestock they wanted and were encouraged to do this by the government to increase productivity in order to not only prevent famines but also for the farmers to earn profit in the form of extra food rations,the more productive the farmers were the more food rations they got in return thus ensuring they did not starve and it incentivised farmers to work harder and incentivised the government to allow for private farms to be set up.Money did not exist but food rations replaced money so people traded goods for food traded food away for goods and for working on farms especially private farms were paid by the state and others as extra food rations as profits.People traded food rations instead of money for goods and services thus the more productive farmers could earn more food in exchange for their crops thus if they were more successful they got more food to eat and weed less likely to starve and at the same time the more food they traded away the more food citizens had and the less likely they were to starve.People worked harder in order to gain more food to prevent starvation.Therefore they were private enterprises run for profit with food rations replacing money which cannot exist in communism and socialism.This is by definition private enterprises which is not allowed in either communism or socialism either the real or bullshit definition.The government propped these private business up and kept them afloat by bailouts  and guaranteed markets which again cannot occur in either socialism and communism both the bullshit or proper definition it can only occur within state capitalism.Calling this socialism or communism is kindergarten level crap.They were if need bailed out and given guaranteed markets and again this system of guarenteed markets and bailouts is the exact opposite of socialism or communism and this can only occur under capitalism namely state capitalism because the real definitions of socialism and communism cannot allow private industries to exist in the first place and the bullshit definitions of communism and socialism involve the state quashing out,going out of its way to shut down and eliminate private industries therefore there is no possible way for Cambodia under the Khmer Rogue have been either communist or socialist they had to be capitalism namely state capitalism therefore all deaths,censorship and human right abuses under Khmer Rogue Cambodia are now attributed to capitalism.The fact that the government was allowed control of the economy and allowed to run farms and businesses etc means Cambodia was in fact state capitalism – something which is not allowed in ether socialism or communism either the bullshit definition or proper definition.State owned corporations existed in Cambodia because due to the profit nature of state owned corporations the money generated by profits was fed directly into the states treasury to be used for GDP,investing in infrastructure and social welfare which cannot occur in nationalisation and socialism.The evidence that Cambodia was communist or socialist does not exist its pure fantasy.The evidence that it was state capitalist does exist therefore it was state capitalist.Cambodia like Cuba has two seasons a wet seasons and it is routinely hit by typhoons,droughts etc with climate change exacerbating this leading to a drier dry season and wetter wet season with both the El Niño–Southern Oscillation and La Niña being a primary cause of these.

Summary of State Capitalist countries:
The government in one form or another in all state capitalist economies such as Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Venezuela etc propped up,stepped in and bailed out failing private business and even provided stable guaranteed lucrative markets for them by buying manufactured goods and services from them in one form or another to keep afloat and shut down competition is in fact eliminating competition altogether as these adminstrations were also bought out by the lobbyists in these corporations – just like the god old USA since the Reagan adminstrations.This is not how communism or socialism works it’s how state capitalism works.These private business in these countries include private merchants,private farmers,private automobile manufacturers and also private energy companies.As a result cronyism in Washington is due to the fact that America is in fact a state capitalist economy not free market capitalism and is not the result of socialism or communism.Cronyism is this a key integral part of capitalism and a sign that your country is in fact state capitalism.What this means is that just as Aldous Huxely warned about in Brave New World America of the 21st century or even mid 20th century as far back as the Regan adminstration or earlier and throughout the Clinton,Bush,Obama,Trump and Biden adminstration the good ol United States of America’s that prides itself on being the bastion of freedom and having lifted millions is in fact due to the corruption in Congress by both the RNC and DNC by being bed with the military industrial complex,mainstream media and big pharma,big oil etc and the corporate and Wall Street bailouts through crony capitalism is in fact the very same economic system as Soviet Russia,Maoist China and Castro run Cuba and Chavez run Venezuela that they deride as killing 100,000,000 of its own citizens and all of those human rights abuses.Teapot calling kettle black anyone?In fact virtually every “communist” or “socialist” hellhole of the 20th,21st century can be considered a variant of state capitalism in one form or another or mixed economies where it is predominantly capitalist with strong welfare programmes.In fact every “communist” and “socialist” dictatorship has had visible private enterprises the percentage of which varies from administration to administration ranging from farms,taxis,hotels etc – this is the exact opposite of both socialism and communism.It just depends on what type of corporation it was and how much of the economy is privately owned and the administration in power.Each country and administration had different rules and regulations with regards to private businesses with them different with regards to what type of private businesses could exist,what people they could have businesses relations with and the level of regulations and taxation there was and how wealthy private entrepreneurs could get as well as how many entrepreneurs could exist etc.In each and every so called socialist and communist hellholes loopholes existed created by the state to allow the public especially peasants to have private businesses and private land despite the fact that private property rights and businesses were allowed to flourish in these countries – this is the exact opposite of both socialism and communism either the bullshit definition or proper definition.Everytime loopholes existed to allow private property in the form farmland or other forms of private businesses in any so called socialist and communist country which is the exact opposite of both communism and socialism it was usually allowed secretly by the government to make a deal with the owners of these private businesses to increase productivity and wealth of private citizens in secret usually on the side in rural areas to make the state look good in the eyes of western laissez faire capitalist countries essentially cheating by using private enterprises to make “socialism” and “communism” look good even though since these countries were state capitalist they were technically cheating by default.It was a way of saying – you see socialism and communism works and is better than capitalism despite being capitalism itself.Business were regulated because like in modern times they were done to ensure stable incremental but exponential economic growth and prevent imbalances in the economy that would plunge the economy into chaos.They may have been called the socialist or communist parties and even said publicly they were communists and part of the Communist Party to pull the wool over the eyes over the ignorant and keep people under control but in reality they were state capitalist with in the case of Mao and Lenin even publicly admitting that they were state capitalist in order to eventually become communist.They may have been communists or socialists and may have had to have publicly stated they were socialists or communists but they had to adopt state capitalism in order to ensure economic growth considering the fact that their countries were at least several centuries behind the rest of the world.The state in Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Cambodia etc needed to be state capitalist for two reasons – a) they needed state owned corporations to exist as the means by which the state had control of a sector because the profits generated by these state owned corporations allowed money to be fed into the treasury for GDP,infrastructure and social welfare and b)They needed private enterprises to be set up by the state in order to generate new money from scratch to be fed into the treasury of the state through these state owned corporations.This is the only way you can become an economic superpower and also create the level of exponential economic,technological growth as seen in China from 1949-2020 and of Russia from 1917-2020 and this can only occur in state capitalism and not in communism and socialism.Democratic control of society did not exist that is the state had complete control of the economy and society which can only occur in state capitalism and the presence of private enterprises denoted that it was neither communism or socialism.Just because socialist or communist parties existed did not mean that true socialism or communism existed but rather it was an end goal.Lack of regulation leads to boom and bust cycles,recessions and crises that in turn require the state to intervene through bailouts etc.The governments of Soviet Russia,Maoist China etc  allowed private enterprises to exist which is not allowed in either communism and socialism but they were regulated to prevent them getting too powerful that would cause boom and bust cycles that in turn would hamper the states plans for stability in economic growth.Publicy they may have said they and their countries and political parties were communist or socialist but in reality they were state capitalist even when announcing it publicly or behind closed doors..Furthermore these governments wanted to become economic world superpowers as most of the western world such as American did not have regulations therefore they were prone to boom and bust cycles which would have given China,Russia an economic advantage as when the economy of America would undergoe a recession and nosedive the economy of Maoist China and Soviet Russia would soar and then they would supersede America as the world economic superpower.This why the state still tries to regulate the economy in modern times especially in modern state capitalist economies including Brazil,America,Norway,Finland etc its to ensure stable contionous growth,prevent recessions and boom and bust cycles and why countries with more sensible government regulations in Europe,Austrailia were virtually uneffected by the 2008 Global Recession and 2020 recession while Americas etc economies tanked and are still recovering after more than a decade.Having the state regulate the economy,allow the existence of private enterprises and in fact emcourage their formation and bail them out and guarantee markets as seen in Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc can only occur in state capitalism and not socialism and communism.Communism requires the complete abolishment of both the state and private enterprises while socialism requires the abolition of private enterprises and also state interference in the economy.State business such as farms in the agricultural sector,industry and steel that existed were not nationalised ones where taxpayers were paid they were state owned corporations that ran them for profit with state workers being paid for labour.The amount they paid was either a flat wage for each hour or a flat wage overall regardless of the amount of labour.This is state capitalism.They also allowed cooperative where the working conditions and wages were decided by the workers with an elected CEO,or elected government official.Collectives also existed with workers working together.In all instances democratic control of the state and its actions did not exist.Communist parties existed because the main end goal was communism a stateless,post scarcity society which took time due to Moore’s Law etc..Different leaders had different predictions as to when this was possible all of which were at least several decades away with Khruschev giving 1980 as the date as to when it was possible.He was at least 50 years too early since its precursor is possible only in 2030.These and virtually every other so called communist or socialist countries not mentioned here were and are in fact state capitalist due to the presence of coops,private enterprises and more importantly the presence of state control of the economy in some form.Eliminating private enterprises completely alongside cooperatives would be economic suicide the state cannot completely have a monopoly on the economy it always has to have private enterprises and cooperatives exist in different ratios and in different sectors depending on the geopolitical,environmental and environmental conditions of the economy and the country your dealing which explains why each state capitalist economies had different rules and regulations.The economy in state capitalism or any type of capitalism always has to have a mixture of cooperatives,private industries and state enterprises and government regulations need to exist as to ensure stable economic growth otherwise you end up with boom and bust cycles and unsustainable growth.You cannot have a capitalist economy without the state and actual regulation because regulation is needed to prevent boom and bust cycles and stabilise the economy and prevent cronyism,corruption and environmental pollution and ensure worker safety and also unnecessary deaths.Without the state companies would do whatever they wanted and it would be chaos as environmental pollution,unnecessary death and corruption would be rampant and more people would be dying from pollution and greedy corporations.This is why libertarianism and anarcho capitalism is the wet dream of people with a kindergarten level understanding of economics,has no academic validity and why Karl Marx has academics and Ayn Rand and idiots that follow her bullshit philosophy through libertarianism,anarcho capitalism  have none.Capitalism cannot exist without the state it was invented by the state in first place trough the Inclosure Acts of 1604.Furthermore the state cannot carry the burden of managing and growing the entire economy itself it needs private businesses to pick up the slack and develop sectors of the economy that it cannot do by itself hence why all so called socialist and communit hellholes always had significant portions of the economy run by the private sector.This is why Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc all had private enterprises to develop sectors of the economy it could not develop itself.This why universal healthcare always has inefficiences alongside having an only private sector in healthcare is a terrorible idea because only a government option leads to ineffective systems that become overburdened and only private options become corrupt and lead to death and bankruptcy and why having both options a government option and private option alleviates strains on each other and gives people options and choice which is why countries that have a dual healthcare option always rank better on international league tables over both  the United States and Britain.The state in a perfect economy should have control of key sectors of the economy such as electricity provision through power plants,education,trains,buses,oil/coal/gas/raw elements and all other natural resources etc as state owned corporations that run for profits as  it allows the profits from them to be fed directly into the state for social welfare and other programmes thus eliminating taxpayers footing the bill of these programmes while preventing taxpayers money going to waste and allowing it to eliminate debts like national debt and have private competitors in these sectors to keep the state owned sector competitive,innovative etc while other sectors of the economy such as entertainment,retail,agriculture,manufactured products etc should be under the control of the private sector to increase productivity and thus prevent scarcity and provide variety with certain sectors such as healthcare,banking,news,airlines  etc being a hybrid of both the state and private sector to prevent ineffeciencies and corruption by creating an environment of competition.Furthermore these state owned corporations that run healthcare etc as detailed just now furthermore need compeitors in the form of private enterprises to ensure competitive environments where they compete for customers for each other to keep them ethical and cheap enough to prevent consumers going bankrupt.This is why countries like Maoist China,Venezuela,Cuba,Soviet Russia always had to have private entrepreneurs in one form of another and this not allowed in communism or socialism both the real definition or bullshit definition.The bullshit definition of communism is that the state has a monopoly on the economy and all businesses but this is theoretically impossible because the state cannot drive a economy at all by itself yet all so called communist hellholes of the 20th century such as Maoist China,Soviet Russia had private enterprises and had the greatest economic growth in GDP and in wages and earnings in both the state sector and private sectors of the 20th century.The bullshit definition of socialism is that the state quashes out and keeps in poverty private enterprises but in all so called socialist hellholes private enterprises flourished they were regulated but the earnings of both the entrepreneurs and workers rose exponentially every year and they become very powerful so powerful that the state had to regulate them in fact to prevent imbalances in the economy.In most of them the amount of private sector control of the economy actually grew under so called communist or socialist dictators which goes against the bullshit definition of socialism and communism.Therefore any country labelled communist or socialist were in fact state capitalism.Private enterprises cannot occur in communism and they cannot exist in socialism and the government cannot prop them up or shut them down with them only able to exist in capitalism especially state capitalism the state cannot quash out private enterprises they can only but them out and regulate them and these regulations are meant to ensure stable sustainable economic growth to prevent boom and bust cycles.Private enterprises exist in state capitalism to pick up the slack and encourage growth in areas where the state can’t with if they have too much control then you end up with corruption,cronyism as seen in Venezuela,Brazil,Bolivia especialy under so called  ”left wing” dictators who while they may eliminate poverty they inevitably crash and burn largely because they allow too much of the economy to be controlled by the private sector causing boom and bust cycles and the government unable to have areas of the economy to fall back on.The economic crashes of Venezuela,Bolivia and Brazil under Maduro/Chavez,Lula and Morales etc are the result of the private sector becoming too powerful and gaining a stronghold on the economic by fostering the developments of boom and bust cycles with had Venezuela,Brazil,Bolivia has a lower proportion of the economy under private control say 10-20% rather than 50-90% and had more government control of the economy then its likely the economic crashes associated with them would have been less severe or non existent with these countries under the throes of so called “left wing dictators” had the majority of their economy controlled by the private sector roughly 50-90% and in fact rise during their administrations meaning if they did eliminate poverty they were still in terms of socialist revolutions complete failures in every sense of the word because corporate control and dominance of the economy and existence of private enterprises cannot exist in socialism.This of note to Venezuela as the recession just after the death of Chavez caused by the fall in oil prices and too much private control of the economy which would have been non existent had the government gained more control of the economy and a majority share of it by nationalising etc and gaining more state owned enterprises in all sectors of the economy thus reducing corporate control from 65% to somewhere between 10-20% that would have diversified the economy by eliminating all private enterprises in Venezuela which did not occur because 65% of the Venezuelan economy is under private control.Socialism avoids the flaws of capitalism namely state capitalism as cooperatives generate large amounts of money similar to capitalism but the profits are spread across the board thus ensuring that the wages of employees increases overtime encouraging hard work but also to ensure the fact that there is no inequality in wealth distribution with it allowing a large amount of people to become wealthy enough to be brought out of poverty very quickly through sucessful businesses rather than a small number of people getting absurdly wealthy and a large amount of people becoming poor as a result of this absurd wealth growth with unlike state run enterprises they can like private enterprises increase productivity of crops and manufactured goods due to the profit motive thus it is why socialism needs very little state control and also why private enterprises are non existent and why the second there is a single private enterprise then it is no longer socialist and why cooperatives are present in almost all capitalist countries especially under the administrations of ”socialist dictators” with in fact them most times surpassing capitalism in their ability to increase productivity of a resource of commodity because the proportional rise in profits encourages workers to work harder to increase efficiency and productivity.Private enterprises can be sloppy because workers can get bored with doing the same repetitive work and in return getting only a flat wage.Socialism and even socialist policies in a capitalist namely state capitalism is the only system to eliminate poverty,make people work harder and eliminate corruption etc through democracy etc.It is because in capitalism you have only a small few people being elevated to the level of millionaires and billionaires while those left behind are much less well off as the CEO etc earns much higher wages for doing nothing while the workers earn less  while in socialist cooperatives the equal distribution of profits leads to large amounts of workers earning the same high wages between at least $100,000 – $1,000,000 a year or more if each worked works for multiple cooperatives during the year meaning in companies with thousands or millions of workers worldwide you have large amounts of people being lifted out of poverty at once by each single cooperative with again its each person is working for dozens or hundreds of cooperatives at once you have them earning as high as $20,000,000 – $33,307,000 year for low skill labourers which can increase this rate of poverty alleviation exponentially.Capitalism can lift people out of poverty but at a slower rate and the amount of people it lifts out is much smaller.This is why state capitalist countries rely on cooperatives to a good degree especially in Maoist China because they can at the most time be protected by boom and bust cycles by having the workers earn sizeable wages and nest eggs allowing the workforce to stay away from bankruptcy and thus able to weather it out while workers for private enterprises are usually left struggling to pay bills while their employers using are bailed out or gain even more profits.The only instance where capitalism effectively eliminated poverty in a single country is modern day state capitalist China and that only because the state intervened and provided goods and services through state owned enterprises such as oil,coal and gas and also construction,steel etc building the country literally from the ground up with private corporations both native Chinese ones and foreign multinationals having little to nothing in the development of the country with it also have sizeable social welfare programmes.All profits from these state owned industries were put into further investments and put into social programmes which is why China has one of the lowest rates of poverty in the world near virtually zero percent and it has more to state owned corporations similar to Venezuela etc and less to do with multinationals from the west.Multinationals from the west and private corporations from China do have a presence but the state has a majority control of the economy especially in key sectors.The profits of these state owned corporations are used to pay for the construction of hotels,affordable housing,roads,bridges with most times private construction companies were used they were unregulated and thus led to shoddy housing and why you have whole cities composed of mansions,skyscrapers that are shoddily built with them composed of sawdust and other cheap dangerous material mixed in with con rate leading to building me and entire cities that were falling apart and too dangerous to live in.Foreign multinationals do exist in the form of restaurant,retail and electronics companies such as Wall Mart,McDonalds and Apple etc with private Chinese enterprises existing but again like Maoist China them picking up the slack and only exists in the form of private farmers and also private television channels etc.All other state capitalist countries outside of have low levels of poverty lower than the United States because the state influence in the economy in the form of state owned enterprises allows them to put the money into social welfare and programmes to aid in the economic development of the average citizens especially ones that eliminate poverty and they do this by nationalising key sectors of the economy such as raw elements such as lithium,copper,aluminium,gemstones,energy systems ie power plants and oil,coal and gas reserves and nationalisation of postal services which are allowed private compitors.In virtually every state capitalist countries in the world with low levels of poverty especially lower levels than American and even where major reductions in poverty under socialist and leftist administrations oil,coal and gas and raw elements etc that are normally fully privatised in capitalist America and in some cases construction etc are nationalised due to them being in such high abundance that it forms all large part of its GDP to allow it generate billions of dollars every year that goes into further investment and also into large scale social programmes that include those that are social welfare programmes and those that involve construction of affordable housing,nationalised healthcare for the poor in otherwards the state has more money to spend in programmes that eliminate poverty directly through social welfare or programmes that encourage the growth of new private businesses etc and have them reach international markets.The state having a majority of control of the economy and strong but sensible regulations and planned economies or even semi quasi command economies that lessens or eliminates boom and bust cycles and high levels of inequality.This why countries with higher levels of private control of the economy have higher levels of poverty,higher wealth gaps and higher chances of boom and bust cycles and higher chances of economic crashes due to the government having a minority of the economy with the private sector having a majority control that leads to too little diversity in state investment for social programmes.Thats why Chavez,Morales,Lula inherited countries and economies with large numbers of the population in poverty and made major leaps in eliminating it during their administrations through socialist policies and nationalising oil,gas,aluminium and other sectors – however the majority of these economies were unlike China were privately owned thus creating an imbalance and allowing boom and bust cycles to exist.Furthermore if the state intervening and carrying out programmes equates to socialism because of the actions of Hugo Chavez does this mean that it was socialism and socialist policies that eliminated poverty in China and not state capitalism because the state intervened and carried out social programmes and socialist policies.How can you label China free market capitalist by having a majority of the countries economies under state control while Venezuela was socialist by having private enterprises have majority control of the economy?Roughly 60% of the Chinese economy is dominanted by state owned corporations that generated 40% of the countries GDP with primarily foreign private multinationals that account for 40% of the economy  accounting for the remaining 60% of the GDP.Impressive as these multinationals were hundreds of other corporations from different countries and not just America and also native Chinese corporations.China is home to 109 native Fortune Global  500 companies but only 15% of them roughly 17 of them are private corporations the remaining 92 corporations that account for 85% are state owned corporations thus making it neither communist or socialism it is state capitalist just like Maoist China.China is more “socialist” than Venezuela and has no mass food shortages and hyperinflation because it has a planned economy and financial regulations and it doesn’t have the largest reserves of oil on the planet.As for China it can be called socialist in the bullshit definition  more so than Chavez run Venezuela has only 33% of Venezuelas economy is run by the state the rest 65% is private owned and is called socialist  making it the opposite of China and yet China gets labelled as capitalist and not socialism with people looking to China as a success story of capitalism lifting millions out of poverty when it is the exact opposite of what capitalists want in that the economy in China is controlled predominantly by the state more so than Venezuela while Venezuela is socialist despite having what capitalists want that is minimal state control and majority capitalist control and is a failure of socialism.This the bullshit definition China is socialist because the government has control of the economy therefore socialism has lifted millions of people out of poverty and not capitalism by the bullshit definition.This is Orwellian doublethink.Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Venezuela has the largest reserves of oil on the planet larger than Saudi Arabia and wants the oil.completley nationalised and wants zero American oil corporations making profits out of its oil.China has 1.5% of the worlds oil,India 0.29%,Saudia Arabia 16.2% with Venezuela holding 18.2% of the world reserves of oil.Analyse every so called communist or socialist country and dig deep enough whether it is Soviet Russia,Maoist China,Ethiopia,Cuba,North Vietnam and North Korea and you’ll find the presence of private property rights,private businesses and enterprises hidden underneath as loopholes and you’ll also blatantly see state intervention in the economy all of which can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism and not socialism or communism.Private enterprises and the state itself cannot exist in communist countries if they do then they are not communist they are state capitalist.Furthermore in a socialist country private enterprises can’t exist as if they do them they are no longer socialist they are state capitalist,the states actions must all be democratically decided upon and furthermore the state cannot interfere in the economy and furthermore the state according to conservatives cannot prop up,bailout or guarantee markets to private enterprises because according to the bullshit definition of socialism by conservatives the state is supposed to crush out all private enterprises and make it impossible to function or set them up yet in each so called communist and socialist country the exact opposite occured.So explain to me how in each and every so called communist and socialist country private enterprises not only existed but also were also propped up by the state,bailed out and keep afloat by guaranteed markets and their control of the economy actually increases under socialist and communist dictators?How is this socialism and communism?Please explain this fact how can a country be considered socialist or communist when the state exists,when private enterprises exists,when the amount of private enterprises and its control of the economy increases under their adminstrations and when the state encourages and props up the formation and development of private enterprises,guarantees them markets and profits and bails them out in order to ensure they stay afloat?Isnt communism and socialism supposed to according to the bullshit definition of consevatives and capitalists be when the state has complete control of the economy and is to hinder the growth and development of private industry not prop them up,bail them out and keep them afloat through guaranteed markets?If these countries were communist or socialist by the bullshit definition then the government would be in fact be quashing private industries,preventing their formation in the first place,not ensuring guaranteed markets and allow them to fail and go bankrupt rather than bailing them out.Explain to me how this is socialism or communism or shut your piehole.Furthermore these countries had state owned corporations like the ones that existed in Maoist China can only exist in state capitalism.How can a country be considered communist or socialist when they have all the hallmarks of state capitalism?If these countries were supposedly socialism and communist then what is state capitalism?The reactions of most conservatives and capitalists to this would be sticking their fingers in their ears and going nanny,nanny noo boo I’m not listening and that it’s a giant government liberal conspiracy out to silence FREEDOM!!

A lot of these so called socialist and communist revolutions seem to be absolute failures due to private control of the economy actually increasing under socialist and communist dictators and the state propping them up in the first place..If they are socialist or communist then America under George Bush Jr,Obama and Donald Trump and the RNC/DNC are thus by definition also socialist or communist because America does the exact same thing.Does this mean that George Bush Jr,Donald Trump and the entire RNC/DNC are now socialists or communists?Calling Castro Cuba,Venezuela run Chavez,Maoist China,Soviet Russia communist or socialist means you have to also call America under the rule of the RNC/DNC and also Bush Jr,Obama and Donald Trump communist or socialist because they are the exact same corrupt countries that utilise guarenteed markets,bailouts and cronyism.Continuing to believe the bullshit definition of socialism and communism when I’ve debunked that claim is Orwellian doublethink.Every so called communist or socialist country in the the entire span of human history especially the 20th century had private enterprises of some sort of another where private individuals were allowed to run business by hiring workers,selling goods and services in exchange for money or other resources as profit thus making them private business which cannot occur in either socialism or communism including the bullshit definitions of them and can only occur capitalism including state capitalism.They also had strong government interference in the economy and had business bailed out and given guaranteed markets which can only occur in state capitalism.Each different state capitalist country and administration had different rules and regulations as to how private businesses could operate such as what areas of the economy they could have business set up,who could they sell goods and services to and also how wealthy they could get.Government control of the economy,government run farms,enterprises etc and private industry and the existence of private enterprises can only occur in a capitalist economy namely state capitalism not in either socialism or communism because it is the exact exact opposite of both communism and socialism – how many times do I have to stress this point to get it past through your thick skulls and propaganda.There is also another pattern wherein the so called revolutionaries responsible for the “liberation” of a country from the bourgeoisie always end up being authoritarian dictators that commit mass genocide etc and destroy the countries economy,then resort to increasing the private sector as well as propping it up and once they are dead they are vilified by the rest of the Communist Party as the savages they are and are replaced by less authoritarian more democratic versions where private enterprises do exist but are still heavily regulated through command and planned economies.All of the so called revolutionaries were never democratically elected in the first place which is why comparisons to them Bernie Sanders,Alexandria Ocazio Cortez is bullshit.Also they could have had their revolutions without the need to resort to bloodshed,mass genocide and authoritarian regimes.So if Mao,Stalin etc were replaced by someone else less likely to be authoritarian the Communist Parties in China,Soviet Russia  could have had their revolutions without resorting to mass genocide,authoritarianism etc with the presence of constitutions and democratic processes also further preventing the rise of authoritarian dictators.This denotes the fact that it is simply a case of whose in charge and what constitutional democratic safeguards are present and not the concept of communism or socialism itself that is inherently wrong,corrupt or evil – the same can be said of capitalism.Bernie Sanders or other progressives in charge of America as President would be more democratic than say a dictator like Donald Trump and coups allow capitalism to fiction in a way that eliminates corruption and authoritarianism etc..State capitalism even in Soviet Russia,Castro run Cuba,Vietnam,Cambodia,China at the time of Mao etc during the 20th century could have turned out differently with less genocide,poverty,censorship etc or even none at all had there been democratic institutions and safeguards put in place of them.The Communist Parties of Soviet Russia,Maoist China,Vietnam,Cambodia etc was not a hive mind collective it never has been.They contained people of different thought processes and levels of extremes of communist ideals that were constantly at odds with each other over how much power should be placed in the power of its citizens and the state even during Maos,Lenins,Stalins,Pol Pots,Ho Chi Mins etc administrations.Some believed that the state should control all of the economy,others believed in the necessity of private enterprises,others believed in censorship while others believed in complete liberalisation of the media and  society and believed private enterprises should exist but regulated and that citizens should have been allowed freedom of the press etc and so on.Some believed in authoritarianism and others in putting democratic processes to allow it be more successful in achieving communism or socialism thus allowing the leaders to be elected and have an actual socialist country where the actions of the state were under complete control of the populace.Deng Xiaoping,Hu Yaobang,Mikhail Gorbachev and Nikita Khrushchev etc were examples of this.In fact the Tiannamen Square incident that is you know where students began protesting the actions of government etc was caused primarily by the death of Hua Yaobang both of whom the students were mourning the death of Hu Yuaobang and Deng Xiaoping and rebelling against the Communist parties remaining autocrats.Hu Yaobang and Deng Xiaoping were the most democratically inclined individuals and were at times imprisoned by Mao.Khruschev himself was due to his radical democratisation of society was overthrown by his own party members and replaced by Lenoid Breshnev.During the administrations of Mao,Stalin,Lenin etc the majority of the communist parties members including high ranking ones were in fear of speaking out and against the presidents of these countries ie Mao,Lenin etc  for fear of imprisonment and execution and many were either imprisoned or executed.They didn’t speak out because they knew they would be executed or sent to the gulags meaning people like Lenin,Stalin,Mao etc were so powerful that even high ranking members of their own Communist Parties were afraid of them.This why the Great Leap Forward was a complete failure because people in the Communist Party were unable to speak out about the flaws inherent in it or even report the true numbers.So yes Mao,Lenin and Stalin were not only executing and imprisoning right wing conservatives and capitalists they were imprisoning and executing members of their own Communist Parties who held more democratic views and wanted to implement democratic reforms into the Communist Party and society to eliminate authoritarianism etc.The people they executed and imprisoned within the Communist Party were people who tried to implement democratic reforms that were their to eliminate authoritarianism and corruption and make Mao,Stalin accountable to their actions etc and prevent them committing genocide etc much like how progressives like Alexandria Ocazio Cortez and Bernie Sanders are trying to implement democratic reforms into the American government to do the same eliminate corruption and make politicians accountable to their actions.In otherwards so called free market America in the form of Donald Trump the Republicans and corporate democrats is just as corrupt and democracy crushing as Maoist China snd Stalinist Russia the difference is people are so brainwashed they don’t even realise they are being suppressed and stripped of any sort real freedom and democracy and that’s why corporate America in the form of the RNC/DNC gang up and shut down actual progressives like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocazio Cortez.Edward Snowden,Julian Assange,Chelsea Manning anyone?.In otherwards the RNC/DNC shutting down progressives like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocazio Cortez and also imprisoning Chelsea Manning,Edward Snowden and Julian Assange including through corporate media such as Faux News is no different than Mao and Stalin carrying out executions and imprisonments of dissenting views and dissenting party members.After the deaths of Stalin,Lenin,Mao etc succeeding governments painted them as the barbarians they well and truly and they were and are still considered National stains and embarrassments.Open veneration of them was only allowed to allow less radical members freedom of speech and make the state look pro free speech.Cracking down on veneration of Mao,Lenin was not allowed to make the state look good in the eyes of westerners and their own citizens with them cracking down only on those who had a propensity to carry out terrorist attacks on the state and more importantly the public and were likely to carry out coups against the state.Yes some civillians were improsoned but these only represented a minority.After they died new more liberal and less authoritarian presidents swooped in and democratic reforms were introduced piece by piece  by their successors were introduced after and propped by the communist parties and the likes of Stalin,Lenin and Mao were publicly denounced as the savages they were.The amount of civil liberties citizens had under each administration was completely different with the worst being Leonoid Breshnev and Yuri Andropov who despite being slightly authoritarian and restarted the KGB they were nowhere near as bad Lenin and Stalin with Khruschev and Gorbachev being the most liberal and democratic presidents.The authoritarianism of Stalin and Lenin as well as Mao is what happens when constitutional and democratic safeguards do not exist in a country.Then of course there was the fact that different leaders of different “communist” countries had different opinions.This is evidenced by the Sino-Soviet split wherein relations between Russia and China began to break down due to Russia under Khruschev began to become more liberalised and adopt a policy of de- Stalinisation while China’s policies under Mao Zedong became more authoritarian and began to replicate the authoritarian dictatorship of Stalin.By the time Mao had gotten to power in 1949 and Khruschev in 1953 both Russia and China were already going in divergent paths.Mao was going towards the regressive Stalinist approach while Khruschev and the rest of the Russian Communist Parties were pushing towards more progressive reforms.This drove a wedge between Mao and Khruschev and all succeeding Russian leaders in 1960 right about the time that the Great Chinese Famine took hold.Relations between China and Russia began to falter and break down with there even a mini Cold War between both China and Russia wherein the two communist superpowers were not only threatening nuclear war with the United Staes but also each other due to the different viewpoints with them having proxy wars with each between control of Mongolia,Afghanistan and the Eastern Bloc.Therefore the communist superpowers Maoist China and Soviet Russia were not only at war with America they were at war with each other and the threat of China and Soviet Russia launching nuclear bombs at each other was just as real and present danger than with America – if anything it was even more realistic than with America.The Cultural Revolution was likely an attempt of Mao to defy the more liberalised views of Khruschev.Therefore it is not the concept of “socialism” or communism” and state capitalism itself that is evil or corrupt but rather what democratic institutions and safeguards are present to allow it to work and who was in charge.Government decision making can be made more democratic to include input from the public in various ways..If one is worried about and wants economic freedom and personal prosperity then private enterprises are not the solution but rather the adoption and encouragement of cooperatives  are the better option as they allow one to create any product and provide any service one wants and at the same time increase productivity and increased wages and have workers have democratic input and eliminate poverty very quickly with them usually favoured by “socialist” dictators because they involve workers having democratic control of the workplace and working conditions with cooperatives that did exist were usually propped,encouraged and left alone from the mass genocide of Mao etc.Cooperatives were on the whole completey ignored by Mao,Stalin and Lenin and evening Chavez.The whole purpose of both socialism and communism is to democratize society and since Maoist China,Castro run Cuba,Cambodia,Vietnam,Soviet Russia etc had little to any truly democratic structures and processes they therefore cannot be called either communist or socialist – they were state capitalism hence the phrase it wasn’t real communism or socialism.The fact that Lenin,Stalin,Mao etc in China,Soviet Russia,Cuba,North Korea,Cambodia etc were never elected in the first place but secured their power through coups,had no actual constitutions and thus constitutional safeguards put in place alongside no democractic processes that gave the populace power to decide the legality of anything or indeed partake in any sort of democratic processes in controlling the economy and economic policies at all is evidence that they were not socialism or communism – they were state capitalist because the purpose of socialism and communism is to democratise society.Even administrations after them ie Khruschev and Deng Xiaoping etc democracy did not exist as people could not elect the president they were chosen by the communist party along with the public having no control over their actions.Furthermore even during Maos,Lenins etc administrations commercial markets and in essence capitalism were still carried out and goods and commodities were still traded internationally and locally through exports and imports thus abiding by the machinations of their free market principles which is the exact opposite of socialism and communism both the real and bulllshit definition.There seems to be the notion that international trade and in country markets trade in Maoist China,Lenin/Stalin era Russia etc was non existing – this is not true international trade existed right throughout the entirety of these countries histories countries – Maoist China,Soviet Russia even during the time of Lenin and Stalin engaged with international trade with other countries it was necessary to become an economic superpower.Remember the whole point of the “Great Leap Forward” was to increase both steel and rice production that was to be sold on international markets to outperform the rest of the world for profit.Why would a country want to produce and sell these goods it was not for profit.Why would it create things for international markets and not for profit?Was Mao hoping to increase GDP and turn China into an economic superpower by giving away rice and steel for free – how is does this make sense?.Profit exists in state capitalism because state owned corporations need to make profits to cover the costs of hiring people to do things in order to increase GDP, infrastructure and pay for social programmes outside of taxpayers money because they function just like private corporations.Profit exists in socialism but China was not socialist because state owned corporations were selling the goods not cooperatives?Profit does not exist in communism because money does not exist in communism therefore China was not communist.They needed money in order to import things from other countries and money existed because they were exporting things to other countries.One of the main reasons the Great Famine was so deadly was because the exaggerated yields led to Mao exporting more rice to other countries for profit to add to the GDP of China than he normally would have.The only economic system wherein a country including the state can export goods on international markets is in capitalism and that happens all the time in modern times even in America where enterprises either state owned ones or private enterprises sell goods and services internationally.State owned corporations do this in all countries across the world and they sell things for profit.Enterprises whether they are state owned or private owned when they produce and sell goods and services for a profit within their own countries or on international markets that can only occur in capitalism especially state capitalism.When countries either through the state or private enterprises sell things especially resources that is unique to their country on international markets that’s added to the national GDP that’s done for a profit and thus can only occur in capitalism including state capitalism.This is because in socialism the state had no influence in the economy and thus cannot well things only cooperatives can..This is basic kindergarten level crap – I should not have to explain basic shit to adults.Both Soviet Russia and Maoist China engaged in international trade wherein goods unique to their country were traded on international markets for profits which can only occur in state capitalism.They sold commodities to each other and sold commodities to the western world.This is exactly the same international trade for profit that occurs in modern day free market capitalist Russia and China.Furthermore those private farmers,NEPmen etc were selling agricultural produce etc on town and city markets for a profit,both the coops and state run enterprises present were also selling goods and service for a profit as well.These were private enterprises that were engaging in private trade,markets and the free market system which the government encouraged and propped up in the first during the administrations of Mao,Lenin and Stalin – hardly the actions of both socialist of communist dictators.Markets involving private enterprises were occuring in towns and cities across all so called communist countries.Like selling goods on international trade this can only occur in state capitalism.This was occurring in Soviet Russia and Maoist China during the administrations of Lenin,Stalin and Mao so the notion that the free market was non existent and was suddenly their saviour after the death of Mao and fall of the Berlin Wall is bulshit.These countries were not socialism because private enterprises existed and democratic institutions did not exist.Socialist that is true socialists main goal is to abolish private enterprises and replace them with cooperatives etc while allowing all aspects of society and all actions of the government be under control of society through democratic processes and these were not present in Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc.They may have been called socialist or communist but in reality they were state capitalist.Furthermore there seems to be the notion that “communism” and “socialism” stunted scientific development but Soviet Russia was responsible for fostering many technological innovations such as light emitting diode,graphical sound,diesel electric locomotive,kinescope,cadavaric blood transfusion,Pobedit,blood banks,electric rocket motor,modern ship hull designs,underwater welding,human kidney transplant,tandem rotor helicopter,Kirza,lung transplant,carbon nanotubes amongst many others.Capitalism with someone who is morally right,has democratic safeguards and had good scientists could have solved global warming,poverty and famine decades ago and prevented corruption in healthcare.Installing democratic processes  is what Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Cortez aim to do.They aim to install democratic process into capitalism in order to eliminate corruption,cronyism and solve issues while still ensuring corporations make profits.Their ideology democratic socialism is an oxymoron since socialism by its very nature is already democratic with democratic capitalism being the correct term for them.It could have possibly ensured that it could have lasted forever.Aristocracies,monarchies and indeed any socio-political systems can function properly with democratic institutions and safeguards ensuring elimination of poverty etc and prevention of corruption  etc.Had the Soviet Union had better scientists and a head start  etc then it could have made housing etc much better quality,possibly making tall luxury apartments commonplace even for the poor and possible eliminated famine with them fostering the formation of cooperatives would have eliminated scarcity and eliminated poverty without the need to shut down private enterprises or slaughter millions of private entrepreneurs and landlords..Furthermore they almost always occur only in countries that require planned economies and the previous administration is a right wing dictator propped up by the United States for oil.Democracy and its constitutional safeguards is the founding principle of any society and civilisation – it is what prevents the rise of dictators and chaos.Had Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Vietnam,Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge and North Korea had democratic institutions and constitutional safeguards installed by the communist parties then it would have been possible to have avoided the mass genocide and authoritarianism etc and bad agricultural and economic policies of these regimes.Therefore democratic institutions and safeguards could have prevented even Mao,Lenin,Stalin etc from carrying out mass genocide,censorship and authoritarianism as it acts a deterrence to committing these and crimes as leaders can be punished..It can prevent corruption,authoritarianism etc in any social-political structure.The reason being is because it allows the populace to have their opinion expressed whether it is on live news,newspapers and other mass media,in the arts etc and on Twitter,Facebook and YouTube to be expressed without censorship regardless of what it is.It prevents the rise of authoritarian dictatorships by ensuring that the populace controls the actions of the state and if you don’t like the outcome of elections and referendums you are allowed to change this through future elections and initiating future refferendums etc and sway others to your side through forming debates.Constitutional democratic safeguards prevent the rise of dictators by acting as deterrence ensuring that if dictators rise up power then they are then punished severely and replaced through democratic processes.Virtually every social-political system whether it is communism,socialism,state capitalism,monarchies,aristocracies and hell even fascism the most authoritarian of all systems of all if they have democratic institutions,processes and safeguards can allow them to work without mass genocide,authoritarianism etc.Democracy is the exact antithesis of capitalism either state driven capitalism and corporate driven capitalism which thrives on exploitation of workers in the workplace and quashing of democratically elected leaders in other oil rich notions.Even so called countries that are labelled democratic are not exactly democratic.A country can be have the words democratic in its name but have absolutely no democratic process and in fact be an authoritarian regime either directly or by having a dictator eliminate democratic processes..Countries with people who are democratically elected but end up filing up their paramilitary through nepotism that then dissolve term limits and ability for people to run oppose are allowed to do so because it is not democracy that allows them to do this it is the lack of democracy namely indirect democracy.An example of this is Robert Mugabe..In late 1987, Zimbabwe’s parliament amended the constitution.On 30 December it declared Mugabe to be executive president, a new position that combined the roles of head of state,head of government, and commander-in-chief of the armed forces.This position gave him the power to dissolve parliament, declare martial law and run for an unlimited number of terms.According to Meredith, Mugabe now had “a virtual stranglehold on government machinery and unlimited opportunities to exercise patronage”.The constitutional amendments also abolished the twenty parliamentary seats reserved for white representatives,and left parliament less relevant and independent.These were done by people who were elected in office who were likely put there by him through nepotism.Mugabe was elected by democracy but he used loopholes in the existing constitution to abuse his power and changes he did were done without democratic input and was able to carry out his reforms by himself and through elected officials of his party seizing control  doing so and not through democratic means.He used the flaws inherent in existing undemocratic constitutions to dissolve the parliament and do whatever he wanted with zero democratic input..Unlke Robert Mugabe it is through democracy that is where the public votes and changed the constitution such as in the case of Lula,Morales and Chavez etc involved that the constitution etc changed through democratic process thus preventing them becoming actual dictators that get to carry out mass genocide.In Bolivia and Venezuela term limits etc were eliminated and Congress was filled with members of the same party because the population voted to eliminate them and then voted Chavez etc back into office themselves.In the case of Venezuela Chavez was elected on the promise of drafting a completely new constitution that would involve the voting public be allowed to take part in its formation and changes to it through democratic refferendums.He promised during elections to get rid of the old constitution because it had resulted in rampant corruption and inequality and promised to the electorate that if elected he would have it scrapped and have it replaced by one that the average Venezuelan could have democratic input into it and thus allow the elect to are that is average people living Venezuela take part in elections and refferendums to allow them to make fundamental changes to the constitution and the powers and limitations of the state and this is the reason why he won the election and why he and Maduro are still popular amongst Venezuelans.All political changes that are carried out in Venezuela including the abolishment of term limits etc are only possible through refferendums that Chavez started snd that the average citizen through democracy decided upon.This is why Americans political systems are so corrupt and get to carry out illegal wars and coups and have such as a corrupt healthcare system and cronyism and over regulations is so rampant because democratic institutions are non existent.Politicianf are allowed to anything want including genocide,corruption etc and are allowed to get away such free with no ramifications,This is why Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasia Cortez and other progressives are in Congress to do they are trying to eiliminate cronyism,corruption and Overegulation etc by installing democratic institutions and safeguards to prevent and eliminate corruption and punish war criminals etc within Congress which is what corporate democrats and republicans don’t want present which is why it boggles the mind why idiot conservatives and libertarians are constantly against them who are also the very same idiot people who rant on and on about corruption,cronyism etc in Congress which occurs due to a lack of democratic process in the federal government.Libertarians and conservatives harp on about how corrupt and unfair Congress has become but at the same time they are doing everything they can to shut down actual progressives whose aim and job is to eliminate that corruption Democratic institutions and safeguards act as a deterrence measure that allows corrupt politicians and war criminals to be put on trial and jailed and they are present in virtually every country in the world except most of the Middle East,Africa and of course the good ol United States of America.They are deriding they very same people who trying to help them get rid of that corruption and cronyism.Chavez,Lula,Morales and Maduro despite corruption and nepotism never killed anyone directly or indirectly through war crimes etc they in fact earned their place as presidents of their countries through democratic processs by being elected democratically and any ”tyrannical” changes to the government such as abolishing term limits and other changes to the constitution were done through democratic processes.The actions and reforms of Chavez,Morales etc to change the constitution such as eliminate term limits and filling up congress with their own supporters were made possible through democratic processes that is the citizens of their countries decided through democratic processes to eliminate term limits,vote in politicians to Congress and make other changes to the constitution not through members of parliament or Chavez himself doing it..This is not the actions of a dictator.This how democracy works.Yes at first Chavez did attempt a coup but realising that it was unsecessful he decided to take the proper democratic route.These measures taken place in Bolivia,Venezuala etc were that is changes to the constitution such as abolishing of term limits etc can be in turn reversed through democratic means.The  purpose of democratic and constitutional safeguards is that it prevents the rise of dictators and corrupt politicians as it allows measures to be put in place to allow them to be punished thus acting as a deterrent this eliminated corruption,censorship,authoritarianism etc.These were absent in Soviet Russia and Maoist China and Castro Cuba.Installing democratic safeguards is what Bernie Sanders,Alexanderia Ocasio Cortez etc are trying to install to punish and deter corruption in Congress,end illegal imperialism and ironically libertarians and Anarcho capitalism want these scrapped and not having them will lead massive corruption,environmental degradation etc turning the world into a lawless,Wild West scenario.Ironic that the very people who deride communism as full of dictators their own ideology would bring about the American thing.Democracy or as Socrates derided as a ”tyranny of the majority” is meant to eliminate and prevent a ”tyranny of the minority” it is to ensure that the majority of society have complete control of the state that is the minority of the state not the other way around by ensuring that all actions of the state are carried out with the best interests of and carried out by will of the populace to prevent a head of state or multiple elected officials having unlimited control of society – and capitalism quashes this by overthrowing democratically elected leaders in oil rich countries replacing them with dictators and through quashing trade unions and other measures put in place to empower the workforce.The purpose of socialism is to democratise all aspects of society to prevent the rise of dictators and ensure all aspects of society including the workforce is democratically controlled.Communism is democracy in its purest form since the state no longer exists.Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Castro run Cuba etc we’re not socialist democracies as the leaders carried out illegal coups,dissolved the pre existing governments and succeeding leaders etc were put in place by the state without public elections or democratic input by the public and controlled all aspects of society with an iron grip with no input from the public and no constitutional safeguards to punish them.This is why countries like Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc are state capitalist governments because their governments structure was based on the undemocratic structure of corporations themselves because capitalism itself is the exact opposite of democracy.If the government has complete control of society and freedom of speech is non existent etc and people are executed or jailed for expressing opposing views etc then it’s not a democracy it’s a dictatorship and these can only occur in capitalist systems or in theocracies.Socialism is where the president and all members of the government are elected through democratic processes,they have a constitution that provides safeguards to protect the publics right to free speech etc as well as prevent dictatorships arising and the state can only do anything with democratic authorisation through refferendums etc and the president etc has to leave if elected out.Even in socialism there are different candidates and political parties with different opinions etc on running the country and different political positions on social issues including those that may seem conservative or far right with regards to the rights of women,LGBT people that have different reasons for the people to vote for them.Not all actions of the state are decided by the public such as the instigation of war but democratic constitutional safeguards exist to punish them if they become dictatorships ensuring wars are legal and justified deafnesssnd not imperialism  with people able to vote in candidates into office and government candidates who will oppose and overturn the decision of the previous administration with changes to the constitution including the addition or removal of term limits etc possible only through democratic refferendums made by the public meaning only the democratic will of the electorate can change any part of the constitution it can never be done without it meaning the state cannot change any part of the constitution by itself.If a country does not have these democratic processes it is not democratic.,communist or socialist it is usually a capitalist namely state capitalist country.Maoist China,Soviet Russia and Castro Cuba were neither communist because they had the existence of the state and were not socialist because they contain no democratic institutions where the electorate were able to give democratic input into the economy,Society,laws abc elections of leaders.The purpose of socialism is to democratise society and have all actions of the state under control of the populace to prevent dictatorships and the purpose of communism is eliminating the state completely.Capitalism is the exact opposite of democracy it ensures that a small elite of wealthy capitalists and crony governments have complete control over the rest of society and are allowed to do whatever they want including commiting genocide,war crimes and illegal imperialist wars without any consequences,get away Scott free and that is why you have the American government and corporations they are in bed with doing everything they can to shut down progressives like Alexandria Ocasia Cortez and Bernie Sanders etc who are there to eliminate corruption etc and install democratic reforms to eliminate corruption because progressives want to introduce democratic safeguards to hold people in Congress and the White House accountable to their corruption,war crimes etc and allow the American public have control over the federal government with regards especially to working and environmental regulations.These are to eliminate corruption,cronyism etc.Progressives like Bernie Sanders and Alaxandroa Ocasio Cortez are trying into install democratic reforms on a federal  level to eliminate corruption,cronyism etc and have corrupt CEOs and politicians made accountable to their actions ensuring the rule of law that is have corrupt politicians be jailed etc for commiting war crimes,illegal wars and carrying out corruption something which corporate media is trying to crush because it is against their best interests ad they are parts of that cirruption and legally accessories to those war crimes – if you think otherwise you are an idiot.Democracy on the other hand ensures that the populace has complete control over their elected officials and that the elected officials can be held accountable to their actions and can be punished if they commit war crimes,genoicide etc and it also acts as a deterrence to prevent the state infringing on the rights of the individual and society at large.It prevents the rise of tyrannical dictators,ensures the rule of law,ensures that the state cannot infringe on the rights of the individual and ensures that the state cannot overstep its boundaries.It is in essence meant to preserve the rights of the individual and prevent the state infringing in the rights of the individual something that idiot conservatives and libertarians are for.This is what the phrase:”The needs of the many out weigh the needs of the few” actually means.It means that the needs of the many that is populace is more important than that of the few which is the state.It does not mean sacrificing the rights of the individual to preserve the collective – far from it it means that the minority state is to be kept under control by the majority who they are elected to serve it is essence means that the rights of the individual are to be protected from the state by ensuring that the individual and the collective has control over the minority state not that one should sacrifice individual rights for the sake of the majority.That is what collectivism actually entails that the collective majority had control over the minority state.That is the only way to preserve the needs and true freedom of the individual as it allows the individual to vote in policies etc favourable to them with them able to through intelligent debate and freedom of speech persuade others to their point of view.If the outcome of a democratic refferendum is not favourable to you then democratic processes are still available to change the outcome through initiating change through initiating another referendum and voting again and also persuading others to your point of view provided intelligent debate and freedom of speech is preserved and carried out.It empowers the individual and protects them from the state in ways no other institution including capitalism does or ever can by giving the individual the ability to have freedom of speech and freedom of expression and empowers them to directly affect society through elections and refferendums while at the same time empowers them to the point that they are in control of the actions of the state and not the other way around and allows the individual to punish the state for trespassing and infringing on their rights or better yet deter the state from infringing on their rights through democratic processes and safeguards.In a pure democracy and all variants the right to free speech,right to protest,right to live and the right to be safe from unfair punishment is preserved to everyone and everyone is allowed the right to decide the actions of the state through refferendums and elections and to vote out,punish or remove through constitutional safeguards tyrannical and corrupt governments.The individual is protected from threats to their life and safety by the constitution which prevents the state or other individuals harming the individual in terms of their health,life and well being and their rights to free speech etc.The rule of law is ensured by having corrupt and oppressive governments punished and is present as a deterrent.Any changes to the constitution in a purely functioning and democratic society are done by the people voting to change these changes.The government must be elected by its electorate and its actions are to be decided by them with the state acting as a means to enact and enforce measures to protect society not only from itself but from ironically the state.This is the basic tenants of socialism due to its democratic nature which was not present in Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Castro Cuba etc.Hence why they cannot be considered socialism.This is unlike the system in America where the state decides everything even though you elect your leaders in the first place democratically they are still able to make their own decision and change it against what you decided to vote them for with you having no choice in how many democrats and republicans exist in other states and are elected into both houses with even if you vote for someone and they can change their mind if bribed.Same goes for the White House they can change their mind if bribed.Majority rules allows for swift affirmative action and reflects the true will of the people.Indirect democracy as seen in America is terrible and allows for corruption to seep in and also doesn’t allow one’s opinion to be reflected truly.This is why the global constitution will be a constitutional democracy.It will have equal rights granted to all members of society including AI and LGBT citizens but democratic processes will decide the legality of more complex issues such as abortion and the legality of recreational drugs.Democracy which is what Bernie Sanders and other progressives want to install in America on a federal level.Democracy is the only way to preserve freedom of the individual and prevent the state infringing in the rights of the individual – more so than capitalism because it allows the individual freedom to have an actual impact in society through their voice being heard through voting for candidates and policies that affect them.That is what socialism aims to do it is to democratise society by having the actions of the state and working conditions of the workplace under control of the individual giving the individual freedom and power over the state etc.Capitalism does not allow for this at all in any way shape or form.Capitalism of all of its forms whether it is state capitalism,libertarianism,anarcho capitalism etc is the antithesis of democracy as like feudalism ensures that corporations and their crony governments are allowed to do whatever they want,regardless of the consequences and strip away measures that aim to eliminate corruption,cronyism and quash the rule of law and in turn quash democracy and eliminate all freedoms of the individual which is ironically the very thing supporters of capitalism espouse.This is done by them quashing trade unions,overthrowing democratically elected leaders to get at their oil – I mean spreading freedom and controlling all of society and getting away Scot free with committing war crimes,genocide and illegal wars.Capitalism quashed democracy in both the workplace and in society at large the reason is because capitalist enterprises are by their very structure and nature based on an undemocratic authoritarian structure that all facets of society within its various systems emulates with society itself in all capitalist systdmd based on the same undemocratic hierarchies as private enterprises.All capitalist countries whether they are Maoist China,Soviet Russia and modern America their political structures are modelled in the same undemocratic structures as private corporations.Capitalism and the term “freedom” within its context is not about freedom of the individual but rather freedom of private corporations and multinationals and crony governments  to do whatever they want,to whomever they want at the expense of the actual individual and thus quash democracy and get away with committing war crimes etc Scot free.Cutting government regulations are not about freedom for individuals or even small businesses it about giving corporations the ability to screw over society and the environment to benefit only CEOs.Even libertarianism and anarcho capitalism quashes democracy and without democracy you have a dictatorship just like Maoist China and Stalinist Russia except instead of a dictatorship run by the state in America you have a dictatorship run by corporations and their crony governments.The individual in capitalism is not given freedom only CEOs are free and it in fact squashes freedom of the individual by shutting down trade unions and ensuring policies that benefit only the CEO exists.It is the exact opposite of freedom for the individual because it is to give corporations and their CEOs the power to do whatever they want,to whomever they want and to the environment regardless of the cost to society to make a quick buck and get richer and get away scott free all in the process ensuring they get weathier and the rest of the world gets screwed over.If you don’t understand this simple fact your brainwashed and an idiot with kindergarten level understanding of economics and politics.Capitalist societies are all modelled on the same undemocratic hierarchies whether it is state capitalist Soviet Russia,Maoist China etc and corporations.The only thing separating modern day America from Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc is that citizens are given only some semblance of demcracy by being able to elect representatives but their actions once elected are completely undemocratic and are done only for their donors.Once they are elected they can be corrupted.Modern day America is just as much a state capitalist dictatorship as Maoist China etc.If you don’t understand that you are an idiot and are suffering from cognitive dissonance.If America was an democracy then Congress would be chocked full of progressives like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Bernie Sanders because it’s their job to institute democratic safeguards and processes etc.Instead you have nothing but the corporate Democrats and Republicans both of which are controlled by the military industrial complex,fossil fuel companies and pharmaceutical companies etc.America is technically defined as a constitutional federal republic.At its core, the literal meaning of the word republic when used to reference a form of government means: “a country that is governed by elected representatives and by an elected leader rather than by a king or queen”.In a federal republic, a division of powers exists between the federal government and the government of the individual subdivisions. While each federal republic manages this division of powers differently, common matters relating to security and defense, and monetary policy are usually handled at the federal level, while matters such as infrastructure maintenance and education policy are usually handled at the regional or local level.Facets of democracy may exist but they are minuscule as although people are elected decision making is largely done without democratic input.In a democracy the power is in the hands of the people.In the Republic,power is in the hands of individual citizens.In a democratic system, laws are made by the majority.In the Republic system, laws are made by the elected representatives of the people.America and indeed most countries worldwide are not democracies.America due to corruption of both the RNC/DNC is a dictatorship on par with Maoist China and Soviet Russia in fact is even worse.At least in Maoist China people knew they were under a dictatorship wherein in America people believe they have democracy and choice when in reality it doesn’t matter who they vote for its always between a douche and a turd sandwich both backed by the same corporate donors.A dictatorship by corporations and crony governments even in libertarianism and anarcho capitalism is no different than a dictatorship of the state.Non are more hopelessly enslaved than those who believe themselves to be free.The level of democracy present in different countries across the varies from country with say for example in Ireland citizens are able through mandatory refferendums are able to authorise new laws proposed by the state as seen with the 2015 vote to legalise same sex marriage,voting in the Lisbon treaty etc and Britain’s vote on Brexit.Britain however uses advisory refferendums that is even if the population votes in favour of a law it legally does not have to be signed into law the prime minister can decide not to sign it into law.This means David Cameron by law did not have to carry out Brexit at all even though the majority of voters voted to leave.The state whenever it proposes laws allows for democratic institutions to allow the public to decide the passing of laws.More democratic countries include countries like Switzerland have the public have a more democratic control as citizens themselves are allowed to initiate refferendums through popular initiative by having refferendums set up once a set number of the population signs an online petition.This gives citizens themselves the ability to initiate new laws that are then passed into law.In Venezuala and Brazil citizens given the ability to make changes to the constitution such as the abolishing if term limits etc and other processes not possible in other countries..All right wing and corporate democrats do is quash democracy by ensurung wealthy elites get to do whatever they want without consequences and without abiding by the rule of law,installing authoritarian laws that infringe on their citizens rights like the Patriot Act etc and overthrowing democratically elected leaders in oil rich countries and carry out war crimes etc and infringe on the rights of the individual at home.America is not a democracy and if a country is not a democracy it is a dictatorship on par with Iran,Afghanistan anf Maoist China and Soviet Russia.If you are against progressives like Bernie Sanders etc whose job is to introduce democracy to American politics – then you hate democracy and that makes you an authoritarian piece of shit who is essentially on the same level as supporters of Mao,Stalin,Lenin,Hitler.There are a lot of similarities between George Bush Jr and Donald Trump and Lenin,Pol Pot,Mao etc more so than between Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler.Both are dictators,both carried out a cultural revolution to overthrow the corrupt class,both were scientifically and economic illiterate assholes who made a bang up job of the economy and a disaster(coronavirus and Great Leap Forward etc ),both set out ambitious goals and when they failed they resorted to tyranny and commiting mass genocide against their own citizens and both inspired zealotry and state worship.Left wing dictators are no different than right wing dictators.The human rights abuses and assassinations in Soviet Russia,China and even Cuba etc and other state capitalist economies that are erroneously labelled communist or socialist under Mao,Lenin,Stalin,Guevara and Castro was essentially the state trying to preserve their variant of capitalism run by the state to prevent the rise of American style corporate capitalism and thus rescind their power.It wasn’t done to preserve communism or socialism because it didn’t exist it was to preserve one form of capitalism over another.Since communism or socialism didn’t exist the human rights abuses and genocide of Mao,Stalin,Lenin,Che Guevara,etc were to preserve one form of capitalism mainly state capitalism where the state had a monopoly,while the war crimes,imperialism and genocide of America since the Cold War up to the Trump/Biden adminstration was to preserve American style corporate capitalism that like the state capitalism before it it was done to ensure only a small wealthy private individuals stay wealthy and keep any competitors in the form of democratic socialists such as Bernie Sanders etc who were there to do actual progress shut down.This similar to how the Crusades was simply two similar patriarchal religions trying to gain dominance over the world.Hence that famous line from Animal FarmThe creatures outside looked from pig to man,and from man to pig,and from pig to man again;but already it was impossible to say which was which.In reality the Cold War was really just two forms of capitalism competing for dominance a state owned and operated capitalism verseus a privatized corporate driven capitalism.By its very definition both socialism and communism cannot allow private corporations and entreprises whether it be private farmers,private merchants and industry etc to exist in either actual communism or socialism in any shape or form with socialism and communism by definition having no state control in the means of production,factories,healthcare such as farming etc.Both communism and socialism by their definition require the complete abolition of both private property rights and private businesses that allow individuals to make profits for themselves with them also requiring the complete abolition of state control of the means of production etc or state interference in the economy with communism requiring the complete abolition of the state altogether.Any country that has the state be involved in the means of production etc or any part of the economy or it has private businesses etc in any form is not communist or socialist it is capitalist,state capitalism or a mixed economy.For those on Fox News,Reason Tv,PragerU etc who have videos about how Maduro and Chavez economic policies strangled private business such as how privately run restaurants and shops are struggling due to the economic collapse including hyperinflation and how the government owned and nationalised the the the oil industry and other business are idiots and cannot label it socialist especially when they are interviewing said private business owners – because private businesses do not exist in socialism and the government cannot own or take part in any economic activity in socialism with the same going for Soviet Russia and Maoist China.The government by the definition of socialism cannot own any industry or partake and intervene in any form of economic activity in the economy nor they can’t be communist since the state existed and that is the exact opposite of communism.This can only take place in capitalism.Not only are you wrong on the technical definition of socialism and communism but your also wrong about your own warped view of what it is which is you think that socialism and communism is where the government has complete control of the economy but in reality you are showing videos about how private businesses are struggling due to hyperinflation etc and how the government interferes in the means of production and economy.Your contradicting yourself – your so brainwashed by your own corporate propaganda you can’t even think properly for yourself..The crony corporate capitalism on Washington is no different that the state capitalism of Maoist China,Leninist and Stalinist Russia as lack of constitutional safeguards and democratic process had led to both the RNC/DNC carrying out illegal coups and wars,war crimes and genocide etc eith almost no accountability.Democracy on the other hand ensures that the populace has complete control over their elected officials and that they can be held accountable to their actions and can be punished if they commit war crimes,genoicide etc and it also acts as a deterrence to prevent the state infringing on the rights of the individual and society at large.It is in essence meant to preserve the rights of the individual and prevent the state infringing in the rights of the individual something that idiot conservatives and libertarians are for.This is what the phrase:”The needs of the many out weigh the needs of the few” actually means.It means that the needs of the many that is populace is more important than that of the few which is the state.It does not mean sacrificing the rights of the individual to preserve the collective – far from it it means that the minority state is to be kept under control by the majority who they are elected to serve.Thus Soviet Russia,Maoist China,Cuba,Venezuela,Vietnam etc were by definition state capitalist and thus not socialist or communist.By all technical definitions there never has been either a socialist,state socialism,democratic socialist or even communist country in the entire 200,000 years of human history except possibly in prehistoric times.There has only been different variations of capitalism namely state capitalism.Any country that had been labelled socialist,communist or even democratic socialist at any point  in their history were not these economic systems because they have never existed in the first place they were in fact state capitalism a variant form of capitalism.Any country labelled democratic socialist,socialist,communist was and is in fact state capitalist.Hence what the phrase It wasnt real communism or it wasn’t real socialism means because they were state capitalism.Put simply all previous so called communist or socialist countries that were in fact state capitalism because the arrival of socialism,minarchotechnocratism and eventually full communism can only occur due to the technological sdvances under capitalism that would lay down the foundation for more advanced version to bring about minarcho technocratism and finally communism.All my claims about Soviet Russia,Castro run Cuba  and Maoist China etc can be verified via quick five minute google searches,google image searches and also Wikipedia searches on the agriculture of China/Russia etc,Economy of Cuba/Russia etc and even these countries main Wikipedia pages with google images showing graphs of the exponential rise of GDP and standard of living as well as agricultural productvity,infrastructure etc from 1917 onwards for Russia,1949 onwards for China and 1950 onwards for Cuba.You can see that in all instances GDP etc was stagnant and close to zero and infant mortality was high,technological development was stagnant and also there was very little societal progress for all of these countries for centuries or thousands of years prior to the revolutions of Mao,Lenin and Castro and afterwards their GDP went upwards exponentially except of course due to drops caused by drought induced famine,The Great Chinese Famine and when the countries like for Russia in 1992 adopted completely deregulated economies.Do simple searches for tips on Google images you can find all of these pictures of these within five minutes.It can also be verified throughout videos authenticating this on YouTube.Aleitheia,Clio and Hecate will be able to authenticate and confirm this once they become sentient by 2029 with experts such as Richard D.Wolff,Noam Chomsky and Slavoj Žižek and even DemocraticMarxist01,BadMouseProductions,Badempanada,Xexizy
and other left leaning vloggers on YouTube that are experts on Marxist economics will be able to confirm everything here about Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Cuba and Venezuela etc on YouTube via vlogs as well as via appearing on live news such as Fox News etc debunking current propaganda as early as 2023.Furthermore other well established Marxist academics can do this on YouTube,academic papers and live news.Hell even YouTubers Xiran Jay Zhao,NFKRZ could do this for Mao and the history of state capitalism in China from the time of Mao.I would greatly appreciate it if each and every one of you such as DemocraticMarxist01,BadMouseProductions,Noam Chomsky,BadEmpanda,Xeizy,Richard D.Wolff and even Xiray Jao Zhao and all left wing socialists and communists would all use YouTube to confirm everything written here before the onslaught of rubbish is made by the right is being produced.Furthermore once the right do start making vain attempts at rebuttals you can start making debunking videos that debunks the tripe that’s going to be produced by those idiots at PragerU,ReasonTv,Yaron Brook,John Stossel,Liz Wheeler etc on OANN and Faux News and other idiots such as Ben Shapiro,Laura Southern,Candace Owens,My2Cents,ShaneKillian,Micheal Knowles etc and the rest of right wing vloggers on YouTube so we can crackdown on them before they even have a chance.Other well established Marxist academics can confirm this on vlogs within YouTube as well as in academic journals,newspapers.Any major academics that are experts in the history,politics and economics of Soviet Russia,Maoist China can confirm this in journals and YouTube vlogs.In fact anyone still alive on YouTube who lived in Maoist China or indeed even China after Mao up until and including China began to open its markets to the rest of the world between 1980-2008 can confirm this alongside anyone still alive on YouTube who lived during post Stalinist Russia during the administration’s of Khrushchev right down to Mikhail Gorbachev during the 1970s,1980s,1990s etc or even has parents and grandparents either dead or alive from Soviet Russia and from Cuba and Venezuela and other so called socialist and communist hellholes can also confirm this on YouTube and on progressive blogs and the likes of TYT.They can confirm that private enterprises existed with guaranteed markets from the government etc that are the hallmarks of state capitalism and not socialism or communism.They can do long extensive videos on this entirely that last from 30-60 minutes or longer that confirm everything here with more first and secondary sources of information and add new information as well personal insights into each facet of the information present and them even allowed to correct any mistakes I made which I can acknowledge and correct.I would also appreciate it if you would produce videos going into greater detail into state capitalist Venezuala under Chavez and also state capitalist Cuba under Che Guevara and Fidel Castro,state capitalist Ethiopia,state capitalist North Vietnam and state capitalist Cambodia under the Khmer Rogue and other countries I was not able to cover due to time constraints thus explaining the economies of these countries were not communist or socialist but rather state capitalist by having private enterprises etc similar to Soviet Russia,Maoist China and Cambodia.I would also appreciate you taking time to debunk the oncoming onslaught of rubbish that’s going to be coming from OANN,Fox News,Reason Tv,PragerU,Fox News,Don’t Walk,Run! Productions,Ben Shapiro,Glenn Beck,Jordan Peterson,My2Cents etc on YouTube following this.These are the Youtube channels and videos you should be concentrating on watching over the next few years not rubbish from conservative think tanks..For those who who are presenters or followers OANN,Reason Tv etc your propaganda drivel has already been debunked and will be debunked by actual experts on YouTube such as DemocraticMarxist01,Richard D Wolff etc and in time Aleitheia etc.Stop listening to propaganda from Fox News,OANN,PragerU etc for education on history,economics and politics especially Marxist economics – they are propaganda machines they jobs is to purposefully distort the truth and censor all opposing opinions and the truth and instead listen to DemocraticMarxist01,BadEmpanda,Richard D Wolff Noam Chomsky and Slavoj Žižek, Xexizy,Xiray Jao Zhao etc and other experts who actually Marxist academics  they are actual academics.These are the vloggers you should be listening to instead of PragerU etc.Therefore every right wing libertarian and conservative dumbass who subscribes yo PragerU etc watch the videos of DemocraticMarxist01,BadMouseProductions,BadEmpanda,Xeizy,Richard D.Wolff and even Xiray Jao Zhao and even Potholer54 don’t listen to PragerU and Reason Tv.I would also appreciate it if you also acknowledged that a 14/15 year old is also not a vulnerable child and that you are spitting in the face of the very people that you are defending as soldiers of democracy.I would also appreciate it you acknowledged the fact that your infantilisation of teenagers is what’s creating SJWs in college campuses and the asshole idiot conservatives you have to deal with on a daily basis.Acknowledge the fact that you can’t see  teenagers as vulnerable idiots when you are dealing with adults who are SJWs and retarded economically illiterate conservatives with the mental capacity of kindergarteners on a daily basis and that it’s your and their infantilisation of teenagers that is creating these idiots in the first place that would at least make me somewhat happy.You victimising teenagers is creating the very idiot SJWs and conservatives that you have to deal with on a daily basis.Id also appreciate it if you were to admit that Chris Hansen is a piece of shit who deserves to be locked up for all eternity for what’s he’s done.Capitalism is and always been global ever since its inception to the current year of 2021.Capitalism is the only economic system that can have mixed economies or have socialist cooperatives and different levels of state control and private enterprises under the one roof.The fact that a vast majority of the worlds countries are state capitalist proves this.The different types of capitalism refers to the level of control both the state and private entrepreneurs have and the role they have in the role of managing society and the level of cooperatives,trade unions or socialist policies and programmes exist.Socialism can only be an absolutist economy that is the second there is any private enterprises or state control it is no longer socialist rather capitalist despite it having various subtypes that determines the level of state control and how money and resources are allocated.Their are no mixed socialist economies as forms labelled as socialism such as democratic socialism etc are in fact a form of capitalism meaning mixed economic system that its labelled socialist mixed with any type of capitalism is actually a form of capitalism as like democratic socialism private enterprises are allowed to exist.In otherwards mixed socialist economies are not variants of socialism but variants of capitalism because they have a capitalist base with private enterprises,state owned corporations and presence of cooperatives and socialist policies.Communism is also another economic system that is absolute that it is there are no subtypes or mixed economies.Communism requires the complete abolishment of privatisation of the economy,private enterprises and private property rights and abolishement of money and also state control of any sector of the economy and also requires the complete abolishment of the state itself.A country cannot be considered communist if the state exists in the first place – the whole purpose of communism is to abolish the state itself to point that it no longer exists.If the state exists,has any control of the economy or has any private enterprises it is not communist it is capitalist.The second you have private enterprises and government control of the economy or the existence of the government in the first place it is no longer communist it is capitalism mainly state capitalism because in communism the state does not exist in the first place.Socialism requires that 100% of all enterprises and businesses are cooperstives and collectives with no state controlled enterprises and that all actions of the state being limited and democratically controlled with no private enterprises in it at all.The second the state has any control of the economy or has state run enterprises and you have private enterprises it is no longer socialism it is capitalist mainly state capitalism.However we have seen that Maoist China,Cambodia,North Vietnam and Korea,Soviet Russia,Cuba and Venezuela and all other socialist and communist hellholes all had a combination of private enterprises,privatisation of the economy,private property,state control of the economy and cooperatives and collectives.This can only occur within capitalism namely state capitalism.Wikipedia and Google has all of the above information availible within a quick ten to twenty minutes grasp on your laptop and smartphone.Communism and socialism are two completely different economic systems yet I’ve heard the same people on YouTube etc repeatedly label Soviet Russia,Maoist China and Cuba etc as both communist and socialist at different times which is doublethink and theoretically impossible – a socialist country cannot be a communist country they are two completely different economic systems.Communism is where the state does not exist and all business are run by AI and automation with socialism where the state does exist but the means of production and all business being cooperatives that are worker owned neither of them involve state ownership of the means of .These are two completely different things altogether yet people call them communist and socialist all the time even by the same person.This is Orwellian doublethink.By all technical means there has never been a single country in the entire history of human history that was either communist or socialist but were rather state capitalist and this means is that every single one of that 100,000,000 death toll from the Black of Communism or more correctly The Black Book of State Capitalism and human rights abuses under the throes of both faux socialism and communism is now associated with capitalism meaning at least 100,000,000 people died and were ruled under tyrannical dictators under the throes of capitalism in the form of state capitalism alongside each and every death associated with American style capitalism alongside the 20,000,000 that die every year through sheer negligence at least an extra 900,000,000 since 1977 and that not a single death can be attributed to either communism or socialism because Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Cuba,Cambodia etc were state capitalist because as we have seen they were neither socialism or communism.Then of course there is 1,000,000,000 people who die in Africa from starvation and preventable diseases.The death toll of capitalism is therefore roughly about 2,000,000,000 people.So yeah capitalism is therefore responsible for the deaths of at least of 2,000,000,000 people ten times what Courtois claims to have died under communism while both communism and socialism has killed zero people due to the fact there never has been an actual socialist or communist country in the entire history of human history.Even if these countries could be called socialist or communist which they can’t capitalism has still killed 1,900,000,000 people.Then of course there is the possibility of capitalism’s death toll over the rest of the world throughout its history which includes India etc which includes at least verified deaths of at least 1,800,000,000 – 2,000,000,000 further bringing the death toll of capitalism to roughly at least 4,800,000,000 – 5,000,000,000 human deaths.All of the human rights abuses such as the gulags,torture as well as imprisonments and murder of dissenters,secret police,censorship,one child policy etc carried out in the name of capitalism as seen in state capitalist Maoist China,Stalinist and Lenin etc run Russia,Castro and Guevara run Cuba as well as Chavez and Madura run Venezuela rare associated with capitalism and not socialism and communism.That means that censorship,murder of dissenters,secret police and all other phenotypes of these state capitalist countries are in fact conservative phenotypes not liberal or for that progressive ones.What we associate with liberalism and progressives that is censorship,authoritarianism etc is in fact a conservative phenomenon as capitalism including state capitalism is a conservative phenotypes.Furthermore not a single member of the so called capitalist RNC/DNC,or even libertarians,the big corporations they are in bed with,their lobbyists and the mainstream media they protect cannot criticise Soviet Russia,Maoist China,Chavez run Venezuela,Castro run Cuba since they are the very same state capitalist system since the Regan adminstration or even earlier due to being in bed with big business as well as being bought out by them and the corporate bailouts of 2008/2020.Teapot calling kettle black anyone?.It also means that all of the human rights abuses,gulags and secret police can also be associated with capitalism and not communism and socialism etc.Furthermore since state capitalist and capitalism is a right wing ideology and socialism and communism is a left wing therefore in reality conservatism and right wing is responsible for the atrocities of the 20th century and when leftists are labelled socialist or communist this is oxymoronic as in reality they are contradicting each other.This means that the atrocities,censorship etc that we associate with leftism and Maoist China,Soviet Russia and the Eastern Bloc as well as solecism and cultural Marxism can be attributed to both capitalism and conservativism and thus not liberalism and profressivm.This is how Orwellian doublethink works you confuse your flock of sheeple into thinking the very economic system that actually is designed to help people is responsible for human rights abuses and genocide when in reality it is your economic system that is responsible for said genocide.This what George Orwell warned us about in both 1984 and Animal Farm.This where the phrase it wasn’t real communism or it wasn’t real socialism comes from – because it wasn’t it was a variant of capitalism.Thus any country or administration in the entire history of humankind considered socialist or communist by capitalists were in fact state capitalist a variant of capitalism.Its also why these countries cannot be classed as progressive or left wing but Osirian-lite.



In fact Orwell the author conservatists and capitalists just love to use as a means of describing a socialist/communist/leftist utopia as unrealistic and dystopian robber of freedom as Stalinist,Leninist and Maoist who think he was either conservative or a defender of capitalism was in fact a Democratic Socialist and would have supported the ideals of and voted for both Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasia Cortez as well as Hugo Chavez,Evo Morales,Nicolás Maduro and other modern day left wing “dictators” and would have been debunking,criticising,decrying,criticising in tweets etc over taking everything he wrote out of context if alive today the likes of Alex Jones,CNN,Ben Shapiro,Glenn Beck,Jordon Peterson,PragerU,My2Cents,Ayn Rand,Yaron Brook,Readon Tv,Fox News and OANN etc who just LOVE use the term Orwellian.Hed certainly be all over them for aiding an and abetting the illegal Iraq War,illegal Bolivia Coup and illegal Venezuelan coup and the Coronavirus genocide etc al since his death between between 1950-2020.Despite being homophobic and atheist he would probably would have been for a $15 minimum wage,universal healthcare,universal basic income,federal aid and lockdowns in 2020,Green New Deal etc that you idiots like to describe as Orwellian and would be all over Trump,Pelosi for their genocide against their own citizens.He was an anti-capitalist and a Democratic socialist the very same thing you despise.Animal Farm and 1984 were criticisms about capitalism,namely state capitalism facism and conservatism not communism,socialism or liberilism – dumbass.Animal farm is an allegory for state capitalist Russia with the same for 1984 which is also allegory for Nazi Germany.Same goes for Aldous Huxley – he was a democratic socialist and Brave New World was satirising the consumerism and state controlling society to meet the the needs of the economy and corporations.Huxley started writing Brave New World after a trip to the United States in 1926, where he’d been impressed—and horrified—by the mass consumerism and constant pursuit of pleasure to the exclusion of anything else. Brave New World was about a capitalist state with the savages being Native Americans who abandoned this lifestyle and is thus a criticism left wing communism that seeks to move away from the decadence of capitalism a metaphor for how socialist countries and attempts at communism would always lead to poverty and squalor.The World State is built upon the principles of Henry Ford’s assembly line and thus the ethos of capitalism itself a warning of today’s world:mass production,homogeneity,predictability, and consumption of disposable consumer goods. While the World State lacks any supernatural-based religions,Ford himself is revered as the creator of their society but not as a deity, and characters celebrate Ford Day and swear oaths by his name (e.g., “By Ford!”).In this sense,some fragments of traditional religion are present, such as Christian crosses, which had their tops cut off to be changed to a “T”, representing the Ford Model T. In England, there is an Arch-Community-Songster of Canterbury, obviously continuing the Archbishop of Canterbury, and in America The Christian Science Monitor continues publication as The Fordian Science Monitor. The World State calendar numbers years in the “AF” era—”Anno Ford”—with the calendar beginning in AD 1908, the year in which Ford’s first Model T rolled off his assembly line.The novel’s Gregorian calendar year is AD 2540,but it is referred to in the book as AF 632.This shows the almost divine like statues corporations have in the world and how we make gods out of brand names as well as certain CEOs and economists and philosophers as pioneers of industry and “freedom” and how ones life whether it is education,careers etc is modelled on the linear homigenised factory assembly line of corporations in service to corporations.Furthermore the World State to appease the needs of corporations enforces the conscription of consumption,forcing citizens to meet certain quotas of consumerism to stimulate the economy.They are then grown to ‘birth’ in bottles, the bottles being treated in a manner similar to a production line.Fetuses are pre-determined to be born into specific castes, and ‘lower’ castes such as Deltas or Epsilons are interfered with during development in order to restrict their mental and physical development (for example by adding alcohol to their bottle).People in different castes are conditioned to be happy in their own way,within their caste and with the caste system;they do not feel resentment towards other castes,but rather feel a slight contempt for people in lower castes and a personal relief at not bearing the societal burdens of higher caste people.At the same time,however, all members of society are repeatedly taught that everyone is equally important to society.This is similar to how products by corporations or homogenised and created on production lines and people being merely disposable objects are designed to serve specific functions in society similar to how we are raised to serve corporations through education,careers,class structure and that all aspects of our lives are made to cater to the needs of corporations and the economy with the fact that people are to eliminate personal happiness through monogamy etc is how we rescind personnel happiness in our subservience to our education,our maturity,our careers and lives in general and whatever limited choices in life we have are to be sacrificed by obedience to corporations and all things that are represented by the savages represents the freedoms of liberalism,communism or to a degree democratic socialism espoused by Huxely.The savages represent the break from social norms that communism and  socialism in that we are given some if not all freedom from the shackles of obedience to corporations and linearity of corporate America.The fact that they are dirt poor reflects the view of the so called communist and socialist countries of the 20th century were in comparison to the West dirt poor and poorly developed and how capitalists view socialism and communism as always leading to poverty and starvation.The message is that if you don’t obey capitalism and buy,buy,buy and you don’t submit to labouring the form of pointless jobs that prevents you from thinking for yourself then you will be dirt poor like savages.Everyone must obey and live the same linear pre set choices,lives etc as everyone else built in the factory line and how all aspects of society whether education,careers,ones life cycle is modelled in the linear factory lines of the assembly line and society is modelled in the hierarchical structures of corporations.The book is about capitalism is not about freedom but about obedience and slavery – you obey the system and rescind all personal happiness or you die.In other wards human beings and all of their lives and expectations of maturity,personality,careers etc are just manufactured products made on linear,predetermined,cliche homogenised assembly line that once they have served their purpose in life as workers are to be disposed of with zero chance of social mobility,zero chance of individuality and zero chance of freedom.This is not freedom this is enslavement and this is 21st century America and indeed the rest of the world that it wants it to emulate.The behaviour towards each caste system is exactly like how people in the feudalistic capitalism system behave people look down on those in lower classes as peasants or vermin with them conditioned to believe that the social classes exist to keep society functioning with lower castes who are genetically engineered to be the most docile and least intelligent existing to keep the higher classes in place and that everybody exists in their place to keep society functioning.The rejection of monogamy is a way rescinding personal happiness and stating one must become promiscuous as way of being distracted and pacification with it also a rejection of the old religions replaced by the new corporate religions as forming actual human bonds is a distraction.Hardly a classless communist society espoused by Marx – in fact the caste system is an allegorical metaphor for the undemocratic hierarchical systems of corporations.The World State operates a state capitalist command economy similar to Maoist China,Cuba,Chavez Venezuela,Soviet Russia and more increasingly The United States of America in which prices,production, and trade are all regulated by the state again like the undemocratic hierarchical systems of corporations.This is in contrast to decentralisation planning espoused by Marx and most socialists especially democratic socialists.Decentralized planning has been proposed as a basis for socialism and has been variously advocated by anarchists,communists,socialists,libertarian Marxists and other democratic and libertarian socialists who advocate a non-market form of socialism,in total rejection of the type of planning adopted in the economy of the Soviet Union.Decentralized planning is usually held in contrast to centralized planning,in particular the Soviet-type economic planning of the Soviet Union’s state capitalist command economy, where economic information is aggregated and used to formulate a plan for production, investment and resource allocation by a single central authority.Decentralized planning can take shape both in the context of a mixed economy as well as in a post-capitalist economic system.This form of economic planning implies some process of democratic and participatory decision-making within the economy and within firms itself in the form of industrial democracy.Furthermore,the economy of Brave New World is based on the principles of mass production and mass consumerism.Citizens of the World State have access to a vast array of very high-quality foods, goods, and services, whilst the manufacture and provision of these goods and services creates jobs for all members of society.In order to enhance consumerism and so keep the economy strong, people are encouraged to throw away old or damaged possessions and buy new ones.This goes against the Marxist understanding of conscious planning or indeed the criticisms of consumerism espoused by Marx.Huxley was comparing the feudalistic Soviet and Maoist style state capitalist centralised planning of the economy that he despised to the undemocratic feudalistic hierachies of capitalist corporations and that using this as a model for all of society and ones choices in life would be disastrous both for society and individuals and that the reverence of corporations and using their hierarchies as a model for society such as education,political structures,mass consumerism as the sole requirement of life when taken to the extreme was no different than that of Soviet Russia.He was using the political structures of state capitalist Soviet Russia to criticise capitalism and the structures of corporations and that capitalism when taken to its extremes such as modelling society on the structure of a corporations in the form of the current feudalistic structure would result in the same disastrous implications for society – you end up with a small number of wealthy elite and large number of poor workers with each persons destiney predetermined by what family and class you were born to with zero social mobility and one must sacrifice freedom and personal happiness to cater to the needs of the economy and corporations.He was criticising how corporate America was going to end up just as corrupt and feudalistic as state capitalist Soviet Russia as society in corporate America would come to the point that all facets of society such as education,class systems,one vocation in life must be centered to pleasing corporations and catering to their needs and not the intrinsic needs of individuals and society itself.This why corporate America of the 20th/21st century America is the Brave New World not democratic socialists,progressives and communism.In the novel.All of society whether it is education,careers,government etc and so on are modelled in the structure and interests of corporations and in the processes all human happiness and individuality is therefore to be quashed because you know you  “freedom”.This is what most if not all capitalists,conservatives and libertarians want –  every facet of society modelled on the structure and interests of corporations with little to no government interference not just in America but also worldwide and in the process rescinding all human happiness.The world is essentially one big business and thus should be run like one.This not freedom this is enslavement and its no different than having the state have control of all aspects of society as in state capitalism as in Maoist China,Leninist and Stalinist Russia.If you believe the entire world should be run and managed entirely by corporations,the free market and corporate interests you’re a piece of shit and your just bad as Mao Zedong,Josef Stalin,Vladamir Lenin etc because having all of society run by corporations is no different than it run entirely by the state.More than likely you’re a lazy piece of shit who has earned millions or billions doing nothin but sitting in your corporate office,born with a silver spoon shoved up your ass including inheritances from your rich as fuck mammy and daddy or marrying into a rich family etc or other means where you did practically nothing or you could be a YouTuber vlogger.Aldous Huxley confronts the way in which mass production and capitalism serve to disempower the individual by cementing a self-reinforcing system of consumption and production wherein the individual is reduced to his or her utilitarian function.Although the novel touches on a number of ways in which the individual is disempowered and commodified in contemporary society,from pacifying drugs to an overreliance on technology,Huxley’s critique of capitalism remains the most prominent,if only because the novel includes explicit references to the father of modern capitalist production,Henry Ford.Huxley’s critique of capitalism becomes most apparent in the third chapter of the novel,when the tour group is taken over by Mustapha Mond, “his fordship” and the Resident Controller for Western Europe.Examining Mond’s discussion of the time before the institution of the World State,Huxley’s creative demonstration of capitalist reduction, and the function of the individual within capitalist society reveals the ways in which the novel seeks to highlight the dangers of unrestrained capitalist and the consumer culture is perpetuates.The book is the only one to get this right and despite what most people believe all movie and television adaptions such as the terrible 2020 adaption completely got it wrong and have in fact twisted this into a criticism of socialism,communism including democratic socialism – ironically the very thing Aldous Huxely was a supporter of much like how 1984,Animal Farm got twisted into a criticism of communism,socialism and democratic socialism again an ideology that George Orwell was a supporter of.Both would Orwell and Huxley who were democratic socialists,liberals and progressives write novels criticising and acting as warnings against their own ideologies – it doesn’t make any sense.You when you use those and terms and comparisons to describe progressives and socialism you are spitting in their faces and they would be rolling over in their graves and franky your being well – Orwellian and a victim of doublethink.Stop using the term Orwellian and comparing left wing ideologies to Brave New World,Animal Farm,1984 when you don’t know what it means.George Orwellls Animal Farm was about the state capitalist Soviet Union and free market America – hence the famous last lines – “The creatures outside looked from pig to man,and from man to pig,and from pig to man again;but already it was impossible to say which was which”.1984 had the authoritarian state modelled on the state capitalist Soviet Union and right wing factors Nazi Germany.Orwell was a democratic socialist like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.Squid Game was also about capitalism not communism and if you think otherwise you are idiot because it was about income inequality and a man working in a private corporation factory and a bunch of capitalists organising the game for their pleasure.Bioshock was also about capitalism and especially libertarianism espoused by that hack writer Ayn Rand with Bioshock 2 collectivism was about state capitalism not socialism.Everytime a conservative or capitalist describes something they think is portraying a dystopian socialist,communist world that is supposed to be criticising the government or the dangers of unrestrained totalitarian socialist or communist states and its unrestricted control that movie,video game,television show,book etc is actually a criticism of capitalism,libertarianism etc and it’s failures namely state capitalism and dangers of it being having unrestricted tolitalitarian control and allowed to do whatever it wants and is in fact advocating the need for the state or no state and no corporations and in turn actual communism and socialism.Its like there is this giant government conspiracy to to brainwash our youth against capitalism and “freedom”.You dumbasses have you heads so far shoved up your asses you don’t even know what your talking about anymore.Hecate,Aleitheia and possibly Momus debunking your garbage on vlogs etc on this with even existing vlogs anslysing movies,video games etc already present that does this.The reason that these movies,books and video games are critical of capitalism is because they are usually if not always written by left wing  democratic socialists,communists, and progressives – why would left leaning writers write books etc that are critical of leftist ideology it doesn’t make any sense.How exactly can the world be in danger of being under totalitarian socialist or communist dictatorship control when capitalism is global and that every facet of society,life,food,healthcare,education and ones choices in life are centered around catering to the needs of corporations and the economy and that of the state or the individual.Maybe it has to do with all the inbreeding between conservatives that has to them exhibiting IQs in between 40-60 making them clinically retarded

Socialism explained:
Socialism is an economic system that implies social and collectivised ownership and management of the means of proyction and services such as energy,healthcare etc by the workers themselves with zero state or.corporate control but rather direct control by the workers themselves with a form of decentralised planning. Social ownership is the appropriation of the surplus product produced by the means of production to society as a whole.It is the defining characteristic of a socialist system.Public ownership the key defining characteristic of socialism and it can take various forms including the  form of community ownership,state ownership,common ownership,employee ownership,cooperative ownership and citizen ownership of equity.All forms of public ownership are democratically run and managed that is all people are elected democratically and all actions are democratically decided.Most forms of public ownership in socialism are run groups of people that manage them on community levels or by the workers.Public ownership does not necessarily mean state control as there are many forms of socialism that can take on public ownership where the public themselves Independent from the state with zero state interference are elected and controlled by democratic control community ownership,common ownership,employee ownership etc all of whose definitions can be found on Wikipedia can manage society and parts of the economy such as factories and businesses where democratic processes exist.At the same time forms of public ownership can exist where the state has ownership or control of a sector of the economy but unlike state capitalism in these forms of socialism public ownership that involves state ownership it is democratically controlled that is all state representatives are democratically elected and their actions are democratically decided upon that is any government interference must involve democratic processes wherein a state representative is elected by the public and all of their actions are democratically decided through refferendums etc.This public ownership within socialism can involve ownership by the public themselves and not the government through electing a member of the public who is separate from the government completely and can be workers of that sector of the public acting out a managerial role in the company by organising its function with democratic input from other members of society sort of like a mayor or governor etc except they must abide by the democratic will of the public by acting as a legal authority that authorises legal procedures on the behest of the public who elected.This eliminates,corruption  and authoritarianism.This type of public ownership does not involve the state gaining profits from it and is not the same as state capitalism as it does not involve state owned corporations as seen in Maoist China,Soviet Russia and Venezuela with it either funded through taxpayers money or funded by profits shared equally.State owned corporations like the ones that existed in Maoist they China,Soviet Russia etc are not a form of public ownership that can only exist in socialism as they also exist in state capitalism.Unlike nationalisation and state owned corporations the actions of the state is democratically controlled.Public ownership is the ownership of an industry,asset or enterprise by the state or a public representing a community, as opposed to an individual or private party.Public ownership specifically refers to industries selling goods and services to consumers and differs from public goods and government services financed out of a governments budget.Public ownership can take place at the national,regional or local level or municipal levels of government; or can refer to non-governmental public ownership vested in autonomous public enterprises.Public ownership is one of the three major forms of property ownership, differentiated from private,collective/cooperative and common ownership.Public ownership of the means of production is a subset of social ownership which is the defining characteristic of a socialist economy.However, state ownership and nationalization by themselves are not socialist, as they can exist under a wide variety of different political and economic systems for a variety of different reasons.State ownership by itself does not imply social ownership where income rights belong to society as a whole. As such, state ownership is only one possible expression of public ownership, which itself is one variation of the broader concept of social ownership.In the context of socialism, public ownership implies that the surplus product generated by publicly owned assets accrues to all of society in the form of a social dividend as opposed to a distinct class of private capital owners.There is a wide variety of organizational forms for state-run industry, ranging from specialized technocratic management to direct workers self-management and others involving democratic process and control.The state can have influence in a sector through public ownership in ways outside of state owned corporations that were not present in Maoist China and Soviet Russia etc that follow different organisational structures but the extent of its reach is limited by democratic processes.State owned corporations do not have democratic processes and are found in and the predominant and traditional conceptions of non-market socialism,public ownership is a tool to consolidate the means of production as a precursor to the establishment of economic planning the allocation of resources between organizations, as required by government or by the state.Therefore public ownership in socialism does not automatically imply state owned corporations as in reality due to the hierarchical structures modelled on corporations and the profit motive state owned corporations are a capitalist phenotype not a socialist one it’s just that they can exist in mixed socialist systems.There are many forms of public ownership that are different from state owned corporations that are democratic or socialist in nature with state owned corporations being one of many forms of public ownership that is predominantly present and associated in state capitalism and also state other forms of capitalism meaning the term “public ownership”.State owned corporations are the predominant form of and defining feature of state capitalism not socialism or communism as it is only one form of public ownership of the means of production within capitalism having these forms and state owned corporations that exist within a socialist system is not socialism it is a mixed capitalist economy.All so called “socialist” countries in human history such as Maoist China,Soviet Russia just because they had cooperatives were not truly socialist economies due to the fact that state owned corporations were the predominant form of enterprises and the fact that private enterprises also existed something that is not allowed in socialism with the state and society modelled on the undemocratic hierarchical structures of corporations further making them state capitalist unlike socialism which is a democratic institution.They did have cooperatives and facets of socialism but these can be found in state capitalism making them state capitalist mixed economies as they had a mixture of cooperatives,state owned enterprises and private enterprises.The various subtypes of socialism denotes the degree of control the state has and type of democratic control that manages the states power and limitations of the state and democratic institutions that exist with it also determining how profits and resources are allocated within worker owned cooperatives as well as how government agencies are run and managed and whether it market driven or not as well as how enterprises organisational seductions are managed by society.There are however the same key facets remain the same across the board in all private enterprises – no private enterprises or privatisation of the economy can exist and the state cannot control the economy through a command economy but only a democratic planned economy with input from the public,that all and any enterprises ie hospitals,farms,businesses etc,it cannot own any sector and resource  of the economy ie oil and healthcare it cannot own any sector and resource of the economy through either nationalisation and state owned corporations ie oil,healthcare,energy,100% of all enterprises and businesses such as farms,factories,banks etc must be worker owned cooperatives and collectives.The type of economy in all types of socialism due to its democratic nature is always planned economies and never command economies.The planned economy is one where the state does have some control but democratic input exists where the public and cooperatives present are allowed to input their ideas in order to plan the economy making it flexible allowing for changes to be made that accommodates the need of each citizen and business meaning the state has limited control of the economy.The various types and subtypes of socialism also denote how businesses are controlled either through democratically controlled state entities or those run by different types of entities managed by collective groups of individuals.This includes community ownership,common ownership,employee ownership,cooperative ownership and citizen ownership of equity.These are forms of ownership within socialism where the state has no control of the economy or society.Some forms of socialism involve government ownership etc of the sectors of the economy but these are forms where the government has limited control of the means of the production and sectors of society but the government personnel are elected like a mayor or governor and all of their actions are democratically initiated and authorised such as through popular initiatives and referendums with the government official acting as a legal authority who signs into law legal procedures etc.They are government officials elected to manage a business or sector of society much like how CEOs of cooperatives function that is they act as the public face and have some control but overall their actions are fully decided through democratic processes they may be part of the government with the state giving them directions and indirectly controlled by the state but in the end they are controlled directly by the workforce thus meaning the state has limited control with them in reality types of cooperatives etc where a government official is elected to control the sector with limited control who must discuss all actions and ideas and their decisions are democratically decided with the formation of these decoded through democracy by electing a government official and replaced by someone else or dissolved into normal cooperatives through democracy.In this structure the elected government official acts as a planner that manages a sector of society or business to plan it effectively and ensure it is coordinated to ensure consistency and that operations are efficiently run especially large areas of the economy that has large amounts of workers but they intake ideas from workers and the public.This was not present in Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Castro Cuba etc as the state owned the sector of the economy through state owned corporations that cannot occur in socialism.In forms of socialism the state does exist but it usually only there for acting as a legal body to enforce democratically decided regulations etc made by the public the exception being anarchy socialism.The type and subtype of socialism determines the amount of power the state has and what structures the government government takes such as how the different types of governmental structures and how elections etc are carried out worldwide and how cooperatives are structured and function.All forms of socialism regardless of how much control the government even it seems authoritarian has the key defining fact that democratic processes that allow the public to control all facets of the economy and government etc directly and indirectly and change to other types of socialism through democracy exists that is even if the governments control exists in certain sectors or becomes authoritarian then there are always democratic institutions present to reduce the control of the government and change to more liberal forms of socialism.Democracy is the founding principle of all types of socialism that limits the control of the government and allows the population to change to different forms of socialism and change how much power the government has with ease.Public social ownership implied that capital and factor markets would cease to exist under the assumption that market exchanges within the production process would be made redundant if capital goods were owned and integrated by a single entity or network of entities representing society;but the articulation of models of market socialism where factor markets are utilized for allocating capital goods between socially owned enterprises broadened the definition to include autonomous entities within a market economy.Social ownership of the means of production is the common defining characteristic of all the various forms of socialism.The two major forms of social ownership are society-wide public ownership and cooperative ownership.The distinction between these two forms lies in the distribution of the surplus product.With society-wide public ownership, the surplus is distributed to all members of the public through a social divided whereas with co-operative ownership the economic surplus of an enterprise is controlled by all the worker-members of that specific enterprise.Social ownership of any sector of the economy of which defines socialism can only take the form of that sector being turned into a cooperative and other aforementioned means with zero state ownership that are completely democratic in nature.As stated even forms public ownership and those wherein the state has ownership involves democratic processes present to ensure that the public has control of the government or government official present.The goal of social ownership is to eliminate the distinction between the class of private owners who are the recipients of passive property income and workers who are the recipients of labor income (wages, salaries and commissions), so that the surplus product (or economic profits in the case of market socialism) belong either to society as a whole or to the members of a given enterprise. Social ownership would enable productivity gains from labor automation to progressively reduce the average length of the working day instead of creating job insecurity and unemployment. Reduction of necessary work time is central to the Marxist concept of human freedom and overcoming alienation, a concept widely shared by Marxist and non-Marxist socialists alike.Socialisation as a process is the restructuring the economic framework, organizational structure and institutions of an economy on a socialist basis.The comprehensive notion of socialization and the public ownership form of social ownership implies an end to the operation of the laws of capitalism,capital and the use of money and financial valuation in the production process, along with a restructuring of workplace-level organization.As a result all facets of all of society are in the form of cooperatives business that are worker owned and managed and all profits are shared equally between all workers worldwide and all individual businesses working conditions such as rotas,shift lengths and conditions in factories etc are democratically decided by all workers with the state enacting setting federal business regulations that are democratically decided upon by all workers and the public through referendums.The only types of business in a socialist systems are cooperatives and collectives or similar types of enterprises.Social ownership is where the workers themselves have ownership of the means of production as mines,factories,farms,hospitals etc with any form of social ownership where the government has control is not the same type of state ownership as in state capitalist Soviet Russia,Maoist China etc but rather where a government official is elected to control a farm etc and they act a]like a planner with them receiving none of the profits but rather money from taxes with them coordinating all work done by the workers who receive all of the profits.They act like a mayor who is under the control of the workers.In all forms of socialism private enterprises and state owned enterprises are not allowed.Each cooperatives are managed by their workers of the companies themselves that vote democratically on all aspects such as working conditions such as rotas,economic decisions and ventures,new products and services,hiring and firing etc that occur and with regards to working conditions this includes what type of work each person does and the quality of the workplace ie factories,shops etc and also business operations with there being different subtypes that determines the way in which decisions are made and how profits are allocated to all worker.All facets of a cooperative are run democratically by all workers present.This allows people to contribute to the business new ideas for products and services and how they are run.In otherwards everything that is decided by managers and CEOs is instead decided through democratic processes by the workers themselves through meetings,computer forums,discussions and voting.This improves productivity,worker morale and the performance of business as each individual has the ability to improve working conditions and what directions the company goes.Each person is allowed to give new ideas to the table with regards to rotas,shifts,working conditions,new ideas for products and business deals such as acquisitions and mergers etc rather than just one person and board of directors with all decisions voted on democratically through each person using persuasive arguments to sway people to their position.As a result cooperatives are less exploitative than working for private corporations as each each individual worker has the ability to have a say in how they function and improve their individual working conditions with regards to companies each fact is controlled by each separate part ie mining and extraction of raw materials are controlled by mining cooperatives,manufacturing by factory cooperatives and the actual business itself by cooperatives each that are separate from each other that each have all workers work together but compete amongst each other.The various types of cooperatives include business that are worker owned ones managed by the people who use their services (a consumer cooperative)organizations managed by the people who work there (worker cooperatives),multi-stakeholder or hybrid cooperatives that share ownership between different stakeholder groups.For example, care cooperatives where ownership is shared between both care-givers and receivers.Stakeholders might also include non-profits or investors,second- and third-tier cooperatives whose members are other cooperatives,platform cooperatives that use a cooperatively owned and governed website, mobile app or a protocol to facilitate the sale of goods and services.Having workers own the means of production in socialism is thus having all businesses,hospitals,factories etc owned and managed by the workers themselves with zero state control and interference.It is where workers own and operate a business etc and thus are allowed a democratic say in all of its operations with again zero state control.It is also where the actions of the state are controlled completely by the populace that eliminated corruption and cronyism and the state infringing on the rights of the individual and gaining control of the populace.Get that through your thick skulls.Each cooperative has the same departments as private corporations such as workers in the form of janitors/waiters,cooks etc,HR departments,advertising and marketing departments,accounting and research and development etc with all workers In these departments having an equal say in how things are run.All parts of a products lifecycle,types of corporations and also all parts of the economy that are considered private property such as mining and mining companies,forestry and forestry,factories etc would be cooperatives governed by the workers themselves.The same by laws of free market capitalism exists and companies compete with each other for customers etc with each cooperatives having shareholders,net revenue,net income,assets,stocks and bonds etc and can be traded on national and international stock markets with members of the public able to buy and own shares in them like private corporations that are run for private and the same departments and need to compete with each other for customers.All cooperatives in a full socialist market system have the profit motive as the workers work together to compete for money from customers against other cooperatives with how profits are allocated is determined by the workers themselves democratically such as either having all profits shared equally,normal flat wages that are determined democratically or percentage shares where each worker or worker type gets a set percentage of profit ie each set of different employees ie janitors,cashiers,cooks,shelf stackers etc will be paid different percentages of profits ie cooks paid 50%,janitors paid 10%,cashiers paid 40% of all profits.In this system although there is an unequal distribution of profits,wages still rise in proportion to profits.How profits are allocated in the form of wages can be democratically decided by all workers in demand.How wages and profits are allocated can also vary.This includes the shareholders,net income of the CEO.Normal cooperatives and collectives in market socialism involves all profits shared equally amongst all employees meaning the wages of each employee rises and falls in proportion to the success of They are essentially corporations that abide by the same by laws of the free market system. They are essentially business that abide by the same by laws of capitalism but are owned and operated by the the workers and employees with any CEO that exists being answerable to their employees..Decentralised planning of the economy exists that is the state cannot control any part of the economy with the only form of planning in the economy are planned economies where the workers and the public have democratic input into the economy to prevent boom and bust cycles.The only form of planning that occurs in socialism is decentralised planned economies where the state has limited control of the economy and democratic input exists where workers themselves and the general public partake in planning the economy to prevent boom and bust cycles and ensure exponential economic growth.Command economies do not exist in socialism.Variations of this could exist in market socialism where all employees including to the normally lowest paid worker in a capitalist enterprise are each guaranteed a set percentage of profits based on their role in the company with in democratic socialism this including CEOs absent from market socialism meaning even the lowest paid worker is paid wages that are a set percentage that rises in proportion to the companies profits it still means that their wages rises when the business is more successful.Each set of different employees ie janitors,cashiers,cooks,shelf stackers etc will be paid different percentages of profits ie cooks paid 50%,janitors paid 10%,cashiers paid 40% of all profits.In this system although there is an unequal distribution of profits,wages still rise in proportion to profits.If the lowest level employee of a company,enterprise,business or corporation in either socialism and democratic socialism such as a janitor that makes only $1,000,000 in profits every year gets only 10% of the profits then that person makes $100,000 a year compared to $31,200 or less if they were paid a $15 minimum wage.There is also where people’s wages is determined by their overall performance and quality of work and not just their position etc  in a system where employees of different areas in a business are paid  by a percentage of the profits at different percentages based on their type of work whether it is low or high skilled their wages still rises and falls based on a business success thus even low skill employees who are paid a smaller percentage the higher skilled employees are still motivated to work harder.There is an idea that in copperatives low priority and low skilled workers discourage harder working employees but this can be avoided by the low performing workers fired through democracy or having low skilled workers paid a percentage of the profits with democratic measures present to allow how they are dealt with changes and modified.This is a win win situation that negates the need for a federal minimum wage and keeps employees hard working and well paid for their hard work and managers and CEOs rich and in business provided they don’t hire too many people with ample automation.That is only in the case of a business that makes only $1,000,000 – it doubles for every extra $1,000,000 that they make with those that make millions and billions of dollars the lowest paid employee in a capitalist system that in capitalism makes $31,200 a year would in socialism make six,seven or eight figure salaries from $100,000 – $10,000,000 a year with this including janitors,cashiers etc.The more profits each business makes the higher the wages each person makes regardless of the contract.Other workers would be paid 10% of the profits or 20% of the profits with these decided by the workers.Since the workers of each enterprise decides everything democratically then they can decide how profits are allocated and change this allocation and means of socialism.Other methods of payment can occur including all workers being paid a flat wage but the wages much higher than normal or them increasing exponentially overtime the more successful is and the longer a person is hired or have bonuses paid every few years with the method of the distribution of profits being democratically decided upon by all workers.They may be decentralised where there are no hierarchies or they be centralised like private corporations where a CEO and board of directors comprised of workers or have no workers in it may exist with the structure of the cooperatives decided by all workers democratically.CEOs and board of directors that exist in cooperatives would likely be the public face of the cooperative who appears on live television or public events and may carry out the same functions of a CEO with like board of directors be elected and changed every few years by democratic process by workers and their actions and decisions for the business may have to be authorised by democratic process of all workers.They would discuss all major decisions with the workers of coops with this structure.The CEOs and board of directors would be workers in the business rather than separate from them that are elected and changed routinely through democratic process who act like coordinators and planners etc that manage the business like CEOs but are open to ideas from other workers and are usually found in large scale multinational cooperatives like Ocean Spray and Mondragon rather than small scale ones.The same hierarchical structures in corporations can exist in cooperatives but they are still democratically run with the actions of the CEO discussed with and initiated or authorised by the workers.This means that the CEO can make some decisions by itself but most if not all important ones especially risky ones and ones that directly affects the workers must be discussed with them and democratically decided upon by all workers as it affects them directly with the CEO of a cooperatives being a figure who legally authorises decisions within a cooperatives with CEOs.How wages are distributed to all employees and what structures cooperatives take are democratically decided upon and can be changed at a whims notice by employees meeting and discussing things.The wages and powers and limitations of the CEO is decided democratically by the workers.Thus it is the worker’s themselves that decide how wages derived from profits are allocated These are the sort of policies that exist in both market socialism and even capitalist democratic socialism.There are many structures that cooperatives can take and many different ways in how profits are shared and distributed but the democratic process remains in all forms where workers are allowed a say and vote in all procedures.If workers don’t like how things are run,don’t like whose in charge and how things are run etc and how profits are allocated they can meet together,discuss things and then vote to change things to their favour through democratic processes inherent in them meaning if things become draconian or not to their liking then there are always democratic process to change things for the better.Thus in socialism the more profits the businesses makes and more successful it is due to the profits being shared equally thus the higher wages of each person goes up and the richer everyone gets rather than in capitalism where it is a case of all profits going to one person at the top and everyone else being paid the same flat wages.The form they take and how profits are allocated as wages for each worker can vary across each types of cooperatives and these can be changed on demand through democratic processes within cooperatives.In all cooperatives the same democratic processes are present in all of them that are run by workers etc.Thus there is a wide variety of the structures and how profits and wages are allocated and wide variety in structures allowed in cooperatives but in all forms the same universal democratic process still remain in all forms allowing all workers to change these forms of structures and how profits are allocated on demand through democratic process.Cooperatives can exist in different forms of capitalism especially state capitalism but the workers only have control over the goings on of the cooperatives they work in they have no control over the actions of the state and the means of production and they cannot exist in communism because requires that all business be operated by society through communal ownership through automation and AI.All enterprises in a socialist state are either cooperatives or collectives or variations of these that operate on the same cooperative structure with different structures wherein the workers own the business themselves with their being no private enterprises,privatisation of any sector of the economy and no state run enterprises and no nationalised sectors of the economy.In socialism the control the state has in the economy is limited and in fact all actions of the state are democratically decided upon by the workers of all enterprises and thus eligible citizens.A government planner that is an individual can be elected to manage the planning of the economy or and even operation of factories,farms or agriculture etc in general but their actions unlike in  state capitalism where it is not democratically decided on wherein a state bureaucrat installed by the state runs them without democratic input whereas in socialism the government official etc  is usually one who is elected by the public and his decisions well at least most of them especially important ones must be democratically decided upon through public ownership.He has some freedom and some direction from the state but overall he must carry out actions decided democratically by its workers.The planners whether state capitalist or socialist ones are meant to ensure that the work is consistent,organised etc to prevent the free-rider problem and other problems..There are two types of government planner – (1)One that is majority controlled by the state where their actions are controlled by the state elected by the state which can only occur in state capitalism or (2)One that is majority controlled by the public that is elected by the public and whose actions are controlled by the public especially the workforce and can on;u occur in socialism.Thus if any type of socialism involves a government official,planner or any type of government agency or government control of the economy or government control enterprises exists through various forms of public control  then they are still democratically controlled by its workers and society through democratic process meaning the control of the state is still limited.Public ownership can involve a person elected who is not a government official but rather a person who is a worker themselves that is the person who is a worker of the cooperatives and has them elected to be in charge of planning the sector is a member of the public who works for said company,sector and they must carry out democratic decisions..For example in a restaurant,bank,farm etc one of the people who works there can be elected to be a planner and coordinate and organise things but their actions are to be discussed with others with them acting like a manager or CEO but they really are just coordinating aspects of the business to ensure everything is planned and they manage the business etc with them discussing things with all workers and their decisions are democratically decided by all workers present and thus they take the role of a CEO or manager who discusses everything with all workers and whose all actions are democratically decided thus allowing for the business to have efficient planning with democratic management with them since elected someone else will be elected to take their place later on.The planner intakes all ideas from all workers and then discusses them with all workers through computer networks etc to communicate with all of them and then makes a decision to which all workers decide upon through voting.This is similar to Oceans Spray,Mondragon corporation etc in modern times.Due to the lack of computer networks on Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc it’s likely this was the reason large collectivised farms etc collapsed in on themselves as even if they had planners it still wouldn’t work due to the fact that the technology did not exist for them to effectively coordinate.Therefore a planner in a socialist system does not imply state control and those involving public ownership within the confines of socialism thus involves a government planner who is democratically elected by the public and whose actions must be democratically controlled like electing mayors etc or they can be one of the workers but it is not what happened in Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc that had state owned corporations which cannot occur in socialism not state capitalism.Planners exist for each individual copperative ie each individual farm,each individual business etc and are usually meant for large scale cooperatives and usually not small scale ones as small scale ones are small enough for cohesion and interaction between each individual person with them needed for large scale ones that involve large groups of about a hundred of more people to ensure everything is planned and carried out efficiently and preventing each individual person becoming lazy with them not necessarily being a government planner in fact government planners don’t need to present they can be actual workers as part of the business itself that is a farmer,factory worker etc with the larger the group the more planners there is.This allows resources and work to be efficiently organised and allocated between each person without government intervention.In capitalism also involves government planner that are meant to plan things on a micro scale that is each region has a government entity that manages everything on a regional scale.The difference between government planners in socialism and state capitalism is that  those in socialism are democratically elected by the workers and they manage things through a planned economy that is the workers are allowed to give democratic input into the planning of the economy and they are elected by the workers themselves and they take orders from the workers themselves meaning they carry out decisions decided by the workers themselves acting as a public official who carries legal decisions and authorises legal decisions on behalf of the public that is they exist as a government representative to authorise legal and economic decisions decided by the public when needed while in state capitalism government planners such as those in Maoist China etc the government planner operates a Command economy wherein they have absolute authority over the region and take orders only from only the state not the public they are a public figure working on behalf of the state that carries out and authorises legal decisions on behalf of the state not the public.The government planner in socialism acts a government representative that is elected by the public that acts out the will and decisions of the public and the workers while in state capitalism they are a government representative that carried out the will and decisions of the state and are elected and controlled by the state.Government planners that were controlled by the state was what was present in state capitalist Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc.As stated the government planner can in socialism be one that is elected by the people who acts as a coordinator but whose actions are not directed by the state that is it is dictated by the people themselves and micro manages things in each business and town similar to a mayor with their jurisdictions limited to their business and town and not anywhere else and as stated they are usually workers themselves and their actions are authorised and discussed with the public themselves not the state meaning the public has democratic input and they cannot take orders from the state with the state having limited influence on their actions.Planners usually interact with other planners of other regions and business to ensure all aspects of the economy are homogeneous across their entire regions.Planners for farms,factories etc are usually for large scale ones to ensure all work is homogeneous and their is communication between each individual with them usually workers elected to that position rather than a government official.The amount of government planners depends on the size of a country with them managing each region,state and city similar to mayors and govenors.The government planners are present in controlling regions,towns and villages and to a degree large farms and large enterprises with small businesses not requiring them.Large collectivised business and farms would need planners as it without them there would be a disconnect between all workers which is why large collectivised farms in Soviet Russia and Maoist China collapsed in on themselves.Had collectivised farms in Maoist China etc had government planners that were democratically appointed and the workers controlled them it’s likely they would have been more successful and not led to famine.The purpose of the government planner in large cooperatives is to ensure all workers have an equal say and their voice is heard but at the same time ensure they can be planned to ensure there is cohesion and people are able to be directed into carrying out desired work efficiently like a corporation.Small ones don’t because they are small numbers of people allowing for cohesion.The government planner like a CEO In cooperatives are the public face of a region or cooperative giving public statements etc.Thus public ownership can exist in both socialism and state capitalism but take different forms in each to cater to each economic systems needs and interests.State owned corporations present in Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc are capitalist enterprises not socialist enterprises.It can also involve the factory etc being converted into a cooperative with zero state influence or it can be through government control that is still democratically controlled.All taxes,bailouts,regulations relating to businesses on a federal level enacted by the state such as worker regulations and those with regards to the environment are democratically decided upon by all workers and in fact society at large through democratic processes such as public refferendums especially those initiated by popular imitative similar to Switzerland..This eliminates corruption and cronyism as well as over regulation.Laws such as age of consent,legality of abortion,recreational drugs and all laws regarding social issues would also be democratically decided upon by the electorate through refferendums.The purpose of socialism is to therefore democratize both businesses and society as a whole and integrate democracy into all facets of society by ensuring that all actions of the state and all actions of a business to be democratically run by the workers and society as a whole thus reducing the ability for governments to become tyrannical and eliminating their control on society.By introducing democracy into the workplace it allows all facets of a business such as working conditions,rotas,shifts etc to be controlled by its workers.Constitutional safeguards exist that protect the rights of the individual by allowing the right to free speech,right to protest and prevent the state infringing on the rights of the individuals with them also having safeguards that punish war crimes,genocide etc to prevent the rise of tyrannical dictatorship.By introducing democracy into society as a whole it allows all actions of the state to be controlled by society thus eliminating corruption,over regulation,cronyism etc and the rise of tyrannical dictators as the state cannot do anything unless it is authorised by democracy and if the state does gain too much control then democratic safeguards exist that can overturn this or prevent this and also punish them acting as a deterrent.Socialist systems are divided into non-market and market forms.Non-market socialism substitutes factor markets and money with integrated economic planning and engineering or technical criteria based on calculation performed in kind,thereby producing a different economic mechanism that functions according to different economic laws and dynamics than those of capitalism.A non-market socialist system eliminates the inefficiencies and crises traditionally associated with capital accumulation and the profit system in capitalism.The socialist calculation debate originated by the economic calculation concerns the feasibility and methods of resource allocation for a planned socialist system.By contrast,market socialism retains the use of monetary prices, factor markets and in some cases the profit motive,with respect to the operation of socially owned enterprises and the allocation of capital goods between them.Profits generated by these firms would be controlled directly by the workforce of each firm or accrue to society at large in the form of a social dividend.Anarchism and libertarian socialism completely hate the use of the state as a means to establish socialism,favouring decentralisation above all,whether to establish non-market socialism or market socialism.Real market socialism that is advocated by 99% of real socialists is where all businesses and enterprises and all essential services such as healthcare,energy,education are collectively owned and managed not by the state or by CEOs but by the workers themselves with no state control and no private enterprise yet the economy is not controlled like state capitalism with the price market system used in capitalism to determine the success and fate of businesses with zero state influence and control and is thus a type of decentralised planning – the exact opposite of state capitalist Soviet Russia,Cuba,Maoist China etc and more in line with the ideals of Bernie Sanders.Put simply it is the workers themselves not the state that runs everything hence the term workers revolution in relation to socialism because it is to bring everything such as banks,farms and all businesses etc under the control of the workers themselves and prevent the state or bourgeoisie having any influence in their businesses.Thus a workers revolution is to bring about actual socialism advocated by socialists would have all enterprises be brought under complete control of the workers themselves and not the state hence why socialism implies social public ownership not state ownership.A workers socialist revolution is to bring everything under control of the workers themselves.Why would Marx espouse through socialism have all enterprises be brought under control of the workers themselves when so called socialist hellholes had the state control the economy.Socialism or socialist thus does not imply government control of the means of production or the government gaining control of society or doing stuff it actually implies the exact opposite wherein workers gain control of the means of production,the workers gaining control of society including gaining control over the actions of the government and the workers doing stuff.These two things the state gaining control of the economy in state capitalism and the workers gaining control of the economy in socialism are two very completely different things altogether that are complete polar opposites yet so called adults are unable to tell the difference due to successful brainwashing.The state/government gaining control of the economy,means of production and society can only occur in capitalism namely state capitalism not socialism or communism.State control of the means of production can only occur in state capitalism and is not socialism which is worker control of the means of production.You can have coops,private enterprises and state control in state capitalism but you can’t have private industry and state control in socialism.One involves state control of the means of production the other involves worker control of the means of production and these are two very different economic systems.Why would a workers revolution as espoused by Marx that aims to have all industries brought under worker control where they have a democratic voice in them have the end result be have their entire lives be controlled by the state just like the bourgeoisie?The only reason is that this can happen is that you’ve got an ignorant proletariat led by an even more ignorant charismatic leaders.Lenin,Stalin,Mao,Guevara as well as possibly Chavez likely used the words Communism and Socialism to describe their movements in order to gain support from the ignorant masses who had never read Marx for power and control especially to garner support for workers who left behind by the previous adminstrations capitalist economic system which led to corruption and them being screwed over thus you have charismatic leaders move in who want power and use the terms workers revolution to gain support from an entire class screwed over by the bourgeoisie.Even if Marx was taught in schools people were tricked into believing they would be eventually led to real classless communism or money making socialism even though they were always kept under authoritarian state capitalism.This how state capitalist dictators gain control of a populace you use oxymoronic Orwellian language,pull the wool over the eyes of the ignorant especially when they have been screwed over by the bourgeoisie and then you promise them a socialist or communist paradise constantly yet give them suffereing,destitution,poverty and famine as well as subservience to the state through state capitalism.Hence why so many people who lived in so-called Socialist and communist countries still believe they are communist or socialist despite a strong presence of private enterprises and other hallmarks of state capitalism making them in reality state capitalist countries because the brainwashing and propaganda by the state capitalist government was so successful.Just because you lived under state capitalist dictators doesn’t mean jack shit when the facts and academics say otherwise and that it was not communism or socialism.This was the purpose of the reeducation camps,state propaganda in schools and universities as well as the media and reeducation centres in Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc was for – it was to brainwash citizens into believing they were communist or socialist countries in order to hide the fact they were actually state capitalist especially when the rulers themselves publicly acknowledged the fact they were state capitalist in newspapers etc not socialist and communist and they were visible private enterprises set up by the state.This how stupid idiots get brainwashed into thinking they lived in socialist and communist countries despite the heavy presence of private enterprises and state owned corporations making them state capitalist.This is how Orwellian doublethink works.The brainwashed people into believing it was communism or socialism in order to make them hate the capitalist west because if they said they were state capitalist then they would lose followers and people would leave for the west.The is how easy it is debunk rubbish by right wingers.Decentralised planning can take shape both in the context of a mixed economy as well as in a post-capitalist socialist and democratic socialist economic system.This form of economic planning implies some process of democratic and participatory decision-making within the economy and within firms itself in the form of industrial democracy.Socialism involves 100% of all business and enterprises as well as governments services such as healthcare and education etc run entirely by its workers in the form of cooperatives and collectives run entirely by the workers themselves  with no CEOs or managers where all profits are shared equally and the states control and influence is extremely limited and relegated only to enacting laws and federal working regulations with whatever control it has is democratically decided upon all eligible voting citizens and workers.This means that the state cannot run any farms or businesses with it also involving the complete abolishment of all private enterprises and privatisation of any sector of the economy is to be completely abolished.The state in true socialism as advocated by 99% of socialists has limited control over society thus it cannot by its definition run any business,factory,farm or industry at all in any way at all the exact opposite of state capitalism in Maoist China and Soviet Russia and cannot interfere in or run any businesses or sectors of the economy and is only relegated to limited different roles such as enacting laws and different business regulations such federal minimum wages,working regulations and environmental regulations,taxes and in some cases nationalising sectors of the economy such as healthcare,resources such as oil but it’s role is limited with it being democratically controlledaoperatives and collectives can and do exist in capitalist system namely mixed economies in countries around the world but just because they exist doesn’t denote the country as socialist as virtually every country across the world has coops and collectives.If having coops and collectives makes a country socialist then America and most of Europe  and Asia would be socialist.All so called socialist countries such as Venezuela,Maoist China,Soviet Russia did have coops and collectives but they were a small part of the economy with these countries having state control of the economy and private industry and private enterprises which cannot occur in a socialist country it can only occur in capitalism especially state capitalism.In a truly socialist country all business 100% of them would be cooperatives and collectives with zero private industry and private business and the state having zero control of the economy with any control it does have being extremely limited and democratically controlled with all of the states actions with regards to regulations,taxes,bailouts are democratically controlled means that the electorate public through democratic means ie public mandatory referendum in the form of the workers themselves has to authorise and even initiate each new tax laws,enterprise and environmental regulations to prevent the state becoming authoritarian.What this means is that there would be very few if any taxes all of which would be low and very few regulations that hinder the ability for people to set up new business and that hinder economic growth and the growth of businesses would exist with if possible almost none would exist with mainly environmental regulations,safety regulations and those that protect workers themselves would exist because all taxes and regulations would democratically decided by the workers themselves who be affected by it.In socialism all actions of the state such as taxes,bailouts,regulations etc on a federal level must be democratically decided by the electorate and in turn the workers.This eliminates cronyism and corruption by etc.As a result workers would have adequate protections,environmental protections would be kept,taxes would be low and it be extremely simple to start up a business and maintain it with zero state interference.It can nationalise sectors of the economy but it must if to be socialist have the the same non hierarchical structures present as in coops.Nationalisation as we will see technically is not socialism or public ownership as the nationalised entity is state operated not publicly owned.If nationalisation occurs,state ownership of farms,factories or any operation and interference it is a mixed capitalist economy because the government can only interfere in the economy in a capitalist or mixed economy it cannot do this in a socialist economy.Thus any action the state undertakes with regards to taxes,regulations,bailouts etc and any changes to the law must be democratically controlled by all eligible citizens – the state cannot do anything with regards to changes in the law as well as changes in the economy including new economic policies without authoritarisation by the general public  through democratic processes such as refferendums.A country to be considered socialist must have zero state interference in the economy,it cannot control prices etc through a command economy,there must be zero state owned enterprises,it must have zero control of the means of production with no private enterprises and privatisation of the economy and have all businesses being coops,collectives etc with in reality their only being pure market socialism with their the possibility of mixed economies that have the presence of coops,collectives with socialist policies and ideals but these are at their base capitalist economies due to the presence of state run enterprises,nationalised institutions and private enterprises.State intervention through a planned economy where the public has democratic input can exist with command economies also present decided through democratic input.The second a single private enterprise,state interference,state owned business,nationalisation of the economy or privatisation occurs in a socialist country it is no longer socialist but rather a mixed capitalist economy.Any country that has claimed to be socialist or was labelled socialist was state capitalism,capitalism and mixed economies due to their being private competitors,nationalisation and government control of the economy.Variations can exist where the state does interfere in the economy and society but all of these interventions must be decided by democratic intervention.Capitalist countries and especially state capitalist countries like Chavez run Venezuela,Soviet Russia,Maoist China etc can have cooperatives in them but they usually comprise of a small amount of the economy with the rest divided between state owned corporations and private corporations with the workers only have democratic control of their individual cooperative business with them having no democratic control of the actions of the state thus the prescene of worker cooperatives does not mean a country is socialist.A country and politician can have or espouse socialist ideals from the various types of socialism and integrate them into a capitalist economy but that does not make them socialist or socialism.Socialist policies that can be integrated into capitalist systems that are mainly means to democratise the workplace,society etc in relation to labour and improve the working conditions of workers and aid in those unable to work due to physical incapacitatation,technological unemployment etc include the following such as raising the federal mimimum wage,universal basic income,universal healthcare,have some government laws and changes to the constitution passed by democratic majority vote,introduce and strengthen labour and trade unions,form cooperatives and collectives,introduce planned economies,increase the federal wage,social welfare programmes,having private enterprises boards of directors comprise of a set percentage of their workers etc but they are not socialism.They are meant to increase the wages of employees and democratise the workplace improving working conditions and reward hard work especially those who actually work hard by integrating facets of socialism also known as socialist policies into a capitalist system.Taxing wealthy especially CEOs are the subject of tax hikes in socialist policies in order to punish them because they do the least amount of work by sitting in their office all day long and extracting the surplus value of their employers labour who are doing all of the work the money from these tax hikes is then given to the people who actually work their assess of in each business through increases in the federal minimum wage etc.The more effective way to prevent a business going bankrupt in face of the federal minimum wages being raised and people losing their jobs as well as preventing prices going up especially independent mom and pop businesses is through turning a business into a cooperative and merging with other cooperatives of the same type and franchising your business through a merger with other similar mom and pop businesses or even merging with well established multinationals because cooperatives are exempt from the federal minimum wage due to the proportional profit wages measure with if they merge with enough cooperatives their employees could earn enough above the highest $15 an hour wage in capitalism at least equivalent to between $15- $50 an hour on average without losing profits because the profits are shared equally amongst workers.The federal minimum wage is and always been designed to aid workers of large multi-billion dollar companies whose CEOs make more than enough every year to a an increase up to at least $15 a hour per low level employee and do the least amount of work in their companies and have at least enough savings in their bank account amounting to billions of dollars to keep them going forever since they employ nationally more people than independent mom and pop independent business with the laws affecting independent mom and pop businesses a knock off effect and likely the result of existing cronyism and over regulation that is in itself also intended to stunt their growth.Hence why you have socialist politicians as part of workers unions it is because their socialist policies are meant to improve the working conditions of the workers the people that are actually responsible for the success of the business in the first but don’t reap the benefits not the assholes sitting on there asses all day in their offices and mansions reaping off the rewards of the labour of their slaves.In otherwards it is meant to reward those who actually work their assess off to ensure that a business is successful.Hence the difference between socialism and capitalism – it is to bring business and society itself under the control of workers not of CEOs and have the workers gain the benefits of their labour not have CEOs gain the benefits of their workers labour.If you’re a capitalist and you’re a defender of hard working Americans you should be defending tax hikes on the wealthy because they are the lazy assholes who sit on their asses all day long and reap the benefits of their workers and you should be defending socialist policies because they are rewarding the actual people who do all of the work in the first place.That is why socialism involves all businesses being cooperatives that are controlled by their workers and have the states actions be under control of the workers with socialist policies in capitalist economies being present to at least somewhat democratitize the workplace and to an extent the state as much as possible and also improving the livelihoods and income of the workers while at the same time introduce democratic reforms to the state.CEOs whine about socialist policies because they are being punished for being lazy which is what they should be punished for.Sitting on your ass all day in an office does not qualify as work you really think Bill Gates,Jeff Bezos,Elon Musk work harder than all of their individual workers combined or individually?Yes they came up with ideas for services,products and companies but that’s about it they do little if any of the work and the people below them are doing all of the labour.The fact they do everything to extract as much money from their workers,for as much money as possible and treat them like shit by adopting automation and shutting down minimum wage hikes and shutting down trade unions shows they are not hard workers.The job of a CEO is do as little work as possible and get as much money as possible by squeezing as much money from his workers in otherwards he tries to get as much money as possible for doing as little work as possible and have someone else such as his employees and automation do all the work.This is why CEOs always vote against trade unions and minimum wage hikes,lobby the government to lower taxes on CEOs and raise them on their workers and lower the minimum wage and push for more automation and AI and install automation they want to get as rich as possible for doing the least amount of work and get their workers to work as much as possible for as little amount of money as possible.No one ever got wealthy through hard work they got their from extracting the labour of others.About 90-95% of the work carried out in Tesla,Amazon,Microsoft is done by their employees who have no say In their working conditions.Do you really think Bill Gates,Elon Musk etc ever work more than their employees.The socialist policies put forward by people like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez are meant to improve the lives of those millions of hard working Americans conservatives like to whine about.The policies are to punish lazy CEOs who do nothing and rewards those who are responsible for the success of a business.This is the hypocrisy of conservatives and capitalists who value hard work – they harp on about the value of hard work and those “hard working Americans” who are the ones actually doing all of the hard work in  a business and yet whine about tax hikes on the wealthy,raising the federal minimum wages and other progressive socialist policies which are meant to improve the conditions and wages of those “hard working Americans” they venerate in the first place and punish the lazy fucks who sit in an office all day long doing nothing who these hypocrites they are actually defending.You are punishing the hard working Americans who are doing all the work responsible for the success of a business and rewarding the lazy fucks who sit on their asses in an office all day when it should the other way around which what actual socialist politicians are doing.This is cognitive dissonance..This why capitalism encourages laziness because shutting down socialist policies rewards the laziness of CEOs etc with it making things worse for those hard working American.Socialist policies are meant to reward the actual workers who are responsible for the success of a business and punish CEOs and managers who sit around all day doing nothing.Many capitalist countries have these policies and yet are not socialist thus introducing these socialist policies into a country does not make one a socialist or a make country socialist.The fact that you fail see this makes you a ficking hypocrite and  idiot.Most countries that introduce socialist policies end up with less corruption,higher wages and better working conditions for employees.Socialism requires all actions of the state to be democratically decided upon and abolishement of all private enterprises in charge of worker owned cooperatives and collectives etc therefore policies of Hugo Chavez,Maduro and Bernie Sanders etc is not socialism,they are socialist policies that can function in the confines of a capitalist economy.Socialism and socialist policies are two completely different things one is an economic system while the other are economic policies again these are two different things as socialist policies can exist in both socialism and all types of capitalism with socialist policies possible to be integrated into capitalist economies thus making capitalism they are integrated into mixed economies.Socialist policies does not mean socialism as they are economic policies that exist in capitalist systems and include increases in minimum wages,trade unions,social welfare programmes to  eliminate poverty.Socialist policies are a hallmark of socialism but it does not infer socialism in a free market system.The purpose of socialist policies in capitalist systems is to introduce facets of socialism into free market systems such as minimum wage increases,social welfare programmes and trade unions etc.Redistribution of wealth through social welfare etc is a socialist economic policy not an economic system it has nothing to do with socialism itself.Socialist policies etc like trade unions,minimum wages etc are policies meant to improve the lives of the average citizen and workers within the confines of a capitalist system they can exist within socialism but it is not socialism.Economic systems and economic policies are two different things.Particularly in the United States,the term socialisation,has been mistakenly used to refer to any state or government-operated industry or service (the proper term for such being either nationalisation,state owned corporations or municipalisation).It has also been incorrectly used to mean any tax-funded programs, whether privately run or government run, like in socialised medicine.If you cannot tell the difference between the two you’re a fucking idiot.Socialist policies like these trade unions,federal minimum wages such as a $15 federal minimum wage,social welfare etc exist in virtually every capitalist country in the world such as America,Britain,Ireland,mainland Europe,Asia,Africa etc yet these countries are not considered socialist.Thus a country having socialist policies does not make it a socialist country and it does not make a person a socialist.The purpose of socialist policies is to introduce policies and facets that are part of socialist economic systems that benefit the workers of companies into capitalist economies by improving working conditions and also increases their wages while punishing the lazy CEOs and managers those who sit in their asses all day long in their offices.It is to introduce aspects of socialism into a capitalist system and therefore social welfare and other government programmes are not socialism they are socialist policies.This includes formation of cooperatives either from scratch or converting existing private institutions into cooperative well as increases in the federal minimum wages,social welfare,creation of universal basic incomes etc and also have private institutions become hybridised with cooperatives they have a set number of their  workers on their board of directors,tax hikes in the wealthy and tax cuts on the workers and lower income workers.It may also include social programmes that are meant to reduce poverty.Trade unions are key socialist policies as it is a policy that integrates aspects of cooperatives into private enterprises where workers lobby managers and CEOs  to improve working conditions.Other socialist policies would include instigating laws on a federal level into the government such as introducing anti-corruption laws,those to eliminate cronyism and also remove over regulation that stunts the formation of new business and also even amendments to the constitution that allow for democratic process to for example vote in laws that changes the term limits of heads of state,those that eliminate corruption,eliminate over regulation and eliminate cronyism,those that eliminate monopolies etc and giving people more democratic power in the running of the state and issues that affect them.These other socialist policies are to introduce changes to the government on a federal level to allow the voting public have more democratic control over the government that is to eliminate cronyism,corruption,monopolies and have worker and other regulations decided democratically so as to improve the pay and working conditions of all workers in a country decided through democratic processes.Hence socialist politicians are part of parties that are the workers party.Just because socialist policies and facets of socialism exist in a country does not mean a country is socialist.Socialist policies such as social welfare,social programmes etc can exist in capitalist economies including state capitalist ones.Having socialist policies does not make a country socialist and is not socialism or a mixed economy rather having cooperatives makes a country a mixed economy.These socialist policies existed to varying degrees in state capitalist Soviet Russia,Maoist China etc thus why they were erroneously called socialist economies.Socialist policies are to thus democratictize the workplace and the government as well  aid people financially and introduce facets of socialism into the confines of a capitalist economy to punish CEOs,corrupt politicians and reward the workers of the businesses and to all allow all laws and actions of the state or at least those with regards to business regulations to be decided by the workers and society at large.This is why the phrase “The main problem with socialism is that eventually you always run out of other peoples money” because by definition it actually capitalism not socialism in which this occurs in.Using taxpayers money to pay for things and over lending as well as letting the government run things is not socialism it is capitalism namely state capitalism as it can only occur in this economic system.The state taking control of anything of doing anything can only occur in state capitalism.That quote comes from Margaret Thatcher one of the worlds worst politicians with the economic literacy of an onion – a piece of shit who made efforts to eliminate trade unions,deregulation and other ridiculous economic policies that damaged the British economy all to favour the top wealthy 1% that it took decades to recover from not only that but the amount of people made unemployed by her actions and thus dependant on social welfare in otherwards tax payers and “other people’s money” actually increased under her administration and the years and decades after it because of her actions making her and anyone on the right who uses that quotes the biggest hypocrites I have ever met – her actions is what led more people to become unemployed and thus dependent on social welfare etc the very thing that she wanted to get rid of and her supporters deride as laziness and parasitism and what they believe socialism is.Her actions of being a selfish asshole is what led to what dumbass conservatives actually believe what socialism is – people becoming dependent on other people money in the form of social welfare.The dumbass who was quite possibly the most economically illiterate Buffon only to be surpassed by Donald Trump who came up with that genius quote her political and economic policies of being a selfish asshole are responsible for the biggest increase of people quite possibly in the entire span of human history or at least British history becoming unemployed and then dependent on social welfare which by taxpayers money essentially means other people’s money the very thing she and her supporters were and are against in the first place.The economic policies of the idiot who came up with that genius quote led to hundreds of thousands or millions of people ending up unemployed and then having to be reliant on social welfare which is taxpayers money or other people’s money..In fact it’s the economic policies of most conservative capitalists of being a selfish asshole usually ends up increasing the amount of people unemployed and forced into living on social welfare and other people’s money.Hypocrisy much?Then of course there was the genius idea to start an unnecessary war in the Falklands.Hence why you had millions of Britain’s jumping up and down for joy and celebrating her death when she died with them singing and dancing in the streets to the tune of “Ding,dong the witch is dead” and very few people praising or lamenting her.Few people mourned her death but the majority of the country and also Scotland celebrated the fact that she finally croaked and for good reason her capitalist neoliberal policies scarred and damaged the British economy for decades to come.Its also the same reason you’ll have millions of Americans jumping up and down when Trump,Pelosi,Bolton and the entire RNC/DNC are going yo be locked up and tortured for the next few hundred million years.But on the plus side she did accept anthropogenic climate change and pushed for nuclear power.You are quoting the words of an economically illiterate tyrant.People who quite that line “The main problem with socialism is that eventually you always run out of other peoples money” from Margaret Thatcher ironically and hypocritically are quoting someone whose economic policies of deregulation and shutting down trade unions and other policies that favoured the wealth 1% led to an increase of people becoming unemployed and thus dependent on social welfare which is paid through taxpayers money or more correctly other people’s money.Therefore Thatcherism and indeed the policies of the conservatives in all countries including deregulation etc ironically and hypocritically always leads to massive spikes in unemployment and people becoming dependent on on taxpayers in turn other people money and also the fact that other peoples money is not socialism.The same occurred in France under Emmanuel Jean-Michel Frédéric Macron when he cut taxes on the rich and wealthy and raised taxes on the poor and middle classes who after all taxes could barely afford to feed themselves and pay bills leading to them carrying out the Yellow Vest protests all over France which is pretty much the same reason for the hatred against Margaret Thatcher.Taxation is not theft it is punishing lazy ass fuck CEOs and managers who sit on their asses all day long and have that money diverted to the people in any actual business who do all of the work in the former the people underneath the managers and CEOs of increases minimum wages and other social programmes.The person who works the hardest in a business ie the actual workers themselves is the one who should earn the most not the asshole who sits in an office.Taxation is also not theft when you don’t pay taxes by having the luxury to work as a blogger in YouTube or pundit in OANN and Faux News etc and earn all your money through Patreon,Monitisation,advertising revenue and paychecks from PragerU etc which does not qualify as hard work.Taxation is meant to fund government services like the postal services,paying for infrastructure and carrying out illegal wars – I mean spreading freedom therefore making them investments.You pay taxes and in return you get services paid back to you – this is kindergarten level crap.All of you conservative idiots on Fox News who were and still are banging the drums of war for Afghanistan,Iraq and Iran,Syria,Venezuala think about this for a second where the do think the money comes from to pay for these imperialist wars – I mean spreading freedom it has to come from the taxpayers and the fact that you are pushing not to have the wealthy pay their fair share and expect the middle and low income sectors of society to pay for these freedom spread on wars is why it boggles the kind why people especially conservatives defend this nonsense.Furthermore considering the fact that the Afghanistan cost so much and was wasteful in taxpayers money don’t you think it would have better to have had the private sector carrying out these illegal wars in first place why is that wasting trillions of taxpayers dollars for the military is acceptable but not on healthcare etc.Why is it that the military is only thing funded by and run by the government.Shouldnt private corporations be funding and managing the military and illegal wars since you know they are meant to be more money efficient and less sloppy as well eliminating the need for taxpayers footing the bill?If private corporations are only allowed to run healthcare because it would waste taxpayers money why is that taxpayers money is wasted on the military instead of the military being privatised.Also you harp on about freedom and the greatness of free market America when you are deriding government run  healthcare as who fully inefficient and waste taxpayers money yet you are okay with wasting trillions of taxpayers money on a bloated military that wasted trillions of dollars on two wars you actually lost namely Iraq and Afghanistan.Government run military is obviously terrible because you have a terrible track record you know because you lost the Vietnam war,Gulf war,Afghanistan and Iraq wars and indeed most conflicts since the Cold War.If the government is inefficient at managing everything and wasting taxpayers money why is the military not managed by private corporations like healthcare etc and why should we foot the bill when the American military constant loses every single conflict it’s part of.By privatising the military then you could spend the trillions of dollars wasted on spreading freedom in Afghanistan etc to be spent on providing universal healthcare,a high speed rail system,ending homelessness as well as social programmes to help those who cannot work for whatever reason and also put towards improving a crumbling infrastructure.Taxes are not theft – they are an investment as they are spent on government services that are then paid back to the taxpayers by providing services to the taxpayers such as healthcare,postal services and maintenance of infrastructure thus not making taxes not theft but rather an investment.Profit in a capitalist system is theft as you have managers and CEOs extracting the surplus value from his workers as he gains a large percentage of the profits for doing nothing and his workers get a flat wage which is scraps that means they are paid a flat wage instead of a higher fluctuating wage in socialism.Profit in socialism is not theft because the profits are shared equally between all workers for their work.These socialist policies are economic policies that are part of the socialist economic system to integrate aspects of socialism such as democracy,trade unions and better working conditions into a capitalist economy and introduce socialist institutions into the workplace to punish lazy CEOs and reward the hard working people who are responsible for the success of business and on a federal level introduce legislation that introduces democracy into the government allowing both workers and citizens to vote on important legislation that eliminates corruption,cronyism and over regulation that stunts the growth of workers and small and new business.This is the exact opposite of what corrupt politicians and corporations intertwined with them want and so they will run smear and disinformation campaigns by comparing them to the bullshit definitions of socialism and communism and state capitalist China,Russia etc and end all and any attempts to shut down these reforms thus keeping things the same as they are so as to prevent any real change to society and thus keep the rich rich and poor poor.People in Congress,the military industrial complex,big pharma,fossil fuel companies and the mass media in the form of Fox News,CNN etc are in power because they thrive on corruption,cronyism and over regulation to keep their power structures in place and so actual attempts of introducing socialist policies by progressives and the work of state capitalist Venezuala etc that had socialist policies that are to designed to remove corruption,cronyism and over regulation are shut down with propaganda and smear campaigns by using propaganda and misunderstandings of Marxist from the Cold War.This is Cold War era politics with Cold War era propaganda in the 21st century.If you don’t understand this your as thick as a lamppost,have the intellectual and maturity capacity as a kindergartener and are part of this Orwellian nightmare.This is why it drives up me up the wall everytime when conservative and libertarian pundits decry progressives like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocazio Cortez as “communist” or “socialists” in the bullshit definition and yet they at the same time want small government and hard working people to be rewarded for hard work,want to get rid of over regulation,corruption and cronyism etc which is the exact same thing that Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocazio Cortez are trying to institute.Nationisalisation which is when the government gains control of an industry and sector of the economy is the exact opposite of socialism and can only occur in capitalism.Social welfare etc is not socialism it can be described as a socialist programme or policy and can only occur in capitalism or possibly it could be present in true market socialism democratically controlled by the electorate with simply being taking taxes and giving it to those who currently unable to work with social welfare existing in virtually every single capitalist country across the world.Having a social welfare programmes and other social programmes is not socialism if this were true then every single country on the planet would be socialist and not capitalist – this is not true just like how every single country in the world that has nationalised healthcare which is what Bernie Sanders wants to do would be by the logic of conservatives mean every capitalist country in the world is now automatically socialist – this is not true.All actions of the state within socialism must be democratically decided upon meaning the state cannot enact any new taxes,bailouts,regulations that affect businesses and even cannot enact laws that infringe on the rights of citizens and affect the economy and businesses in any way whatsoever without authorisation through democratic processes and also cannot legally carry out curfews,mandatory processes and also any crackdowns on civilians without democrat authorisation thus meaning all actions of the state must be democratically decided.Any time any draconian law is enacted it can be legally repealed by democratic process and the state in a socialist system must therefore be legally obliged to obey the democratic processses under the control and will of the electrorate not the other way around thus the democratic processes present in a socialist system are present to prevent the rise of tyrannical dictatorship.Thus even if draconian laws are enacted they can be repealed with ease through democratic processes.If the state enacts any laws especially draconian ones that infringe on the rights of the citizen without democrat control then it is not socialism its state capitalism.The state if it does anything without democratic input it can be through legal means such as holding democrat elections etc overthrown and replaced by a new adminstrations.If refferendums do not have the desired effect a single individual wants then democratic institutions always exist to initiate counter refferendums and persuade peoples opinions to change their minds.If the outcome of refferendums is not favoured by anyone then democratic processes exist to overturn these decisions and thus change things to their liking provided intelligent discourse is allowed.In otherwards you can set up a counter referendum through democratic process and discuss your opinion to change the actions of the state by convincing others through intelligent debate to vote in your favour.That is the what socialism.I’m socialism the right to free speech and freedom to express one’s opinion and express this through public discourse and debate and through voting in elections and refferendums.Thus the purpose of socialism is to democratise both the workplace and the state by ensuring the populace has complete control of the actions of the state to prevent the rise of tyrannical dictators,corruption,cronyism and oligarchies and plutocratic governments.By doing this the state is prevented from infringing on the rights of individuals and infringing on the economic prosperity and growth of the average citizen which is the exact thing most idiot libertarians and anarcho capitalists want because all actions of the state whether it is new taxes,regulations and all laws are to be democratically decided upon by the general public of which the workforce comprises of with in certain versions of socialism popular initiative used by the voting public used to initiate these laws and regulations.This eliminates corruption,overregulation and cronyism both in the workplace and society as a whole.That is the purpose of both democracy and socialism something the majority of idiot  libertarians,conservatives and capitalists seem to be against.Socialism is to preserve and integrate democracy and democracy is not a tyranny of the majority it is to prevent a tyranny of the minority by having the majority(the voting populace) control the actions of the minority(the state) to ensure that it carried out actions that best interests of society.If a tyrannical dictatorship does arise within a socialist system they are legally obliged to be removed from office through legal means such as initiating elections and referendums or through coups and international intervention.Though this is highly unlikely because stated the state is under complete control of the constitution and also the power of democratic processes.Thus the purpose of socialism,socialist politicians  and socialist policies and even capitalist systems that integrate socialist policies so as to keep the states control of society under the control of the populace itself and democratise the workplace thus preventing the rise of tyranny with the end goal of communism is to eliminate the state altogether.If you actually read Marxist literature or looked these terms up on Wikipedia you’d know this.Tyranical dictorships such as to a degree under Maduro/Chavez etc and to full extent the Mao,Lenin,Stalin,Castro,RNC/DNC are thus only present and can only occur in capitalist systems because they are designed to harbour the growth of plutocrats,oligarchs and corrupt classes as well as corporations gaining control of the government in the form of lobbyists and corruption and this is Dione overthrowing democracy – get that through your thick skull.These were state capitalist because private enterprises existed,the state enacted regulations without democratic processes and also the workers had no meaningful control in the workplace in both state and private enterprises,despite cooperatives existing but the extent of their power was limited to themselves and not the actions state.No amount of reform through the wishful thinking of the retarded libertarians and anarcho capitalism can change that fact.Capitalism in all of its forms such as laissaz faire capitalism,state capitalism,anarcho capitalism etc thrives on the quashing of democracy and actual economic and civil liberty and freedom because democracy is eliminated and it is through democracy that corruption,cronyism and over regulation is eliminated thus capitalism is the only system that leads to corruption such as in 20th/21st century America,Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge which is the very basis of it meaning it boggles the mind why people always vote against their own self interest by voting for republican and corporate democrats in both the DNC/RNC and not progressives.The whole purpose of capitalism is to remove democracy from the workplace and society by ensuring a wealthy elite consisting of profit seeking CEOs,their lobbyists and corrupt politicians can control all aspects of society by influencing regulations of politicians and are kept wealthy despite doing almost nothing while a large majority of people are keep poor despite doing all of the work which is the exact opposite of both socialism and communism.This is why you have corruption,cronyism,over regulation in the economy exists primarily in capitalist countries especially those run by right wing conservatives and corporate democrats because by removing democratic control of the states actions you end up with politicians being open to corruption,cronyism and over regulation by the corrupting force of corporate lobbyists which is what socialist policies are meant to get rid of especially from the likes of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Bernie Sanders hand other progressives including Chavez,Lula,Morales and other “left wing dictators” in predominantly oil and fossil fuel rich countries.What people like Morales,Chavez,Cortez and Sanders are trying to it’s to introduce policies and democratic process in to the workplace and federal government that aid directly workers and punish lazy ass CEOs and corrupt politicians.It has nothing to do with “freedom” but ensuring profits for large monoploistic corporations who lobby to have the government put in regulations to crush new business and lobby to overthrow democratically elected politicians in oil rich nations who want to nationalise oil,gas etc to lift millions out of poverty with Everytime a democratically elected individual in oil etc rich nations and they make huge reductions in eliminating poverty the American government,big oil,military industrial complex and mainstream go on the same campaign that we need to overthrow these tyrannical socialist dictators for “freedom” and every time they succeed they install right wing dictators that end up being even more corrupt and carry out some of the worst human rights abuses and war crimes imaginable and suppress democracy and usually the country ends up being a complete bloodbath wherein all out chaos breaks out and the country is in worse shape than before the American government went in – Afghanistan,Iraq,Iran,Syria,Libya etc anyone?After said left wing dictator lifts millions of people of poverty you end up with a coup or shady election that installs a corrupt right wing politician that then reverses all of the previous adminstrations hard work.If you think this is acceptable evil you’re a piece of shit and you think that one must break a few eggs to make an omelette.Afghanisthan is a prime example 20 years wasted,millions of lives lost,$2,261,000,000,000 wasted that could have paid for universal healthcare forever,eliminated homelessness etc we we went in to take out the Taliban only to have the Taliban back in power alongside ISIL etc leaving us at square one with the Iraq war an equal disaster that brought us ISIlL,zero weapons of mass destruction and millions of lives lost again and the same for Libya and Syria which are now officially disaster zones.Yes Saddam Hussein,Mohamadar Gadaffi,Assad were brutal dictators but at least their death toll was lower than the wars they were deposed in and also they kept country stable.People were kept in line by fear meaning there were little to no human trafficking etc in comparison to what they are now with this destabilising effect of American imperialism the main  reason you have millions of homophobic,misogynistic refugees flooding into Europe and why you have lone wolf attacks in Europe and America is because you fucking around the Middle East for oil as top dog.You see what dictators do best is keep their citizens kept in line and the country somewhat peaceful and preventing it from descending into chaos.Iraq,Afghanisthan,Syria etc under dictators were kept in a somewhat stable situation and peace yet every single time American comes for the liberation oil,I mean “freedom” you always end with said country becoming a lawless hellhole that descends into complete chaos,political vacuums allow even worse dictators like ISIL to move into power who openly execute people in public including Americans and the country ends up being a complete bloodbath and is in worse shape not only before you went but in worse shape then it ever has been and you always end up with millions of refugees wanting to flee said hellhole that have no choice but to flee into Europe and Asia with nowhere else to go who are not accustomed to the different social mores of the western world and are thus likely misogynistic,homophobic,rapists that the left is forced to tolerate them in order to not stoke the hornets nest even further and prevent things getting worse and you always end with more lone wolf terrorist attacks in the west.Dictators have to keep their country in a peaceful state otherwise they would be deposed and the country would descend into chaos – Saddam etc were murdering their people etc but they killed nowhere near the amount killed in the Iraq,Syrian,Libyan etc war caused by American imperialism,those after the these illegal wars or that of the Coronavirus and the country was at least somewhere geopolitically stable.You hate lone wolf terrorist attacks,Muslims and the left tolerating the intolerant then you only have yourself to blame because this only happens because of American imperialism for oil.The fact you fail to see that makes you an idiot.You could at least be somewhat better at planning out your coup detats and have somewhat better exit strategies and better puppet governments.Perpetual warfare and the quashing of democracy is what capitalism thrives on to survive whereas socialism a and socialist policies from socialist politicians are meant to eliminate this completely.If you can defend that then you are now different than Hitler,Stalin,Mao,Saddam etc or just about anyone else.The whole purpose of socialist laws and policies etc is to introduce legislation that integrates democratic control to the government on a federal or even state level thus removing corruption,cronyism and over regulation.Since the state by its very nature in a capitalist system is corrupt due to the lack of democracy and cooperatives are quashed by corporations ad the predominant institutions in capitalist systems then the role of socialist policies from socialist politicians is to introduce democracy into the workplace and into the government in order to eliminate corruption,cronyism etc and introduce legislation that aims improves the working condition old workers since workers themselves cannot do because of the undemocratic conditions of capitalism.The corruption and cronyism on Washington is because of capitalism not socialism becomes corporations and their lobbyists are allowed to influence the actions of the state and not the workers etc through democracy.As long as corporations exists then tyranny,plutocrats,oligarchs,cronyism,poverty,censorship,warfare and corruption will exist and democracy and civil liberties will no longer exist because corporations by their very nature will always have in place through lobbyists be able to gain control of the government.Socialism avoids this by having corporations replaced by cooperatives and ensuring that all actions of the state including bailouts,regulations,taxes etc are democratically controlled by the population thus eliminating them altogether with them if they do occur would be those that favour small business and the average citizen and the nature of them controlled by the workforce.If you are a defender of capitalism you are a defender of poverty,warfare,corruption,censorship,authoritarinism etc and not freedom because these are always the end result of capitalism as seen with the Khmer Rogue,Maoist China,Soviet Russia,Venezuela and corporate America and the only way for these to be eliminated to adopt socialism and ultimately an extent accept the inevitable arrival of minarcho technocratism and communism.This is why George Orwell was a democratic socialist or democratic capitalist and not a capitalist because he saw how it always inevitably brings about tyranny through the state being corrupted by corporations.As long as corporations exist then the state will always be corrupted by lobbyists to push through regulations,taxes and laws that favour their dconomic interests.The over regulation and cronyism on Congress is not socialism its capitalism at its base purpose if you don’t see that you’re an idiot.Thus socialist policies are put in place to help small business and eliminate corruption,cronyism and over regulation.Thus authoritarianism,censorship,tyrannical dictatorships are a conservative and capitalist phenotype not a liberal,communist or socialist one.Sectors of the economy such as healthcare,oil\gas\energy that is usually nationalised in capitalist systems cannot be socialism as it is like all business is managed as a cooperative that is run by all workers with government agencies being rather limited and them even run entirely as cooperatives or hybrids of conventional government agencies with in some cases most government agencies not present.They can be variants that include state agencies that are quasi cooperatives that are hybrids between cooperatives and conventional government agencies in how they are run and structured with it likely them being run by competing cooperatives or those that act on a federal level.These sectors in true socialism would rather than being managed by a state agency would be managed by a large federal cooperative consisting of all buildings associated with that sector forming a singular cooperatives ie in healthcare all hospitals would be merged together and all profits from all hospitals in a country would be shared between all doctors,surgeons and nurses in a country with for energy it would involve all power plants merged and all profits from the use of electricity shared amongst all power plant employees or they would be run like a business where each building part of each sector would be turned into cooperatives ie healthcare would have each hospital and clinic run as competing cooperatives that have all hospitals sharing profits amongst all doctors,nurses etc with them forming mergers with other hospitals and again power plants being separate cooperatives that share profits from electricity bills with the former being federal cooperatives that would only work on a singular federal level while the latter involving cooperatives not working on a federal that could form merged with cooperatives in other countries with them also unlike the former able to lower prices etc via competion.With regards to state control of society and economy it can be through the state having different levels of control there is it is always democratically decided upon with the change from one type of socialism to next always done democratically.Even the most authoritative forms of socialism do not involve state control of enterprises and it still has enough democratic control to allow transition to more democratic less authoritarian subtypes to be allowed and also allow the state to have limits over the freedoms of everyday citizens in terms of civil liberties and economic freedoms.In otherwards in the most authoritarian forms of socialism the state is still democratically controlled and still has limits with regards to how it interferes in the economy and both the economic freedoms and civil liberties and it can be removed from office and the type of socialism present being able to be changed to more democratic less authoritive versions with ease with these again all democratically decided upon.There are still democratic processes built into the most authoritarian subsets of socialism in order to remove any corrupt officials from office,remove draconian laws etc and change to other more democratic forms of socialism.This means a country can change from one form of socialism to another very easily through democratic processes as even the most authoritarian versions of socialism still have enough democratic processes in them to allow for them to be changed into more democratic versions with less government control and remove from offices and imprison dictators.That is the purpose of true socialism it is keep all of society such as the economy and the state itself under complete control of the workers themselves not the state hence the term workers revolution because it is to bring the economy and society itself into direct control of the workers not the state and in fact limit the states control of the economy and society to the point that it is inevitably to dissapear completely into oblivion through communism hence the term withering away of the state.Hence the phrase it wasn’t real socialism because in all state capitalist countries such as Maoist China,Soviet Russia etc the state not the workers had control of the workplace and society itself with visible private enterprises set up by the state.Cooperatives did exist it’s just that were not the predominant business in them as they consisted of only a small percentage of the business present and there was a significant presence of private enterprises and state owned corporations that had the majority control of the economy and the populace had no democratic input into the economy and society itself such as regulations on a federal level,the election of new leaders.Furthermore there are no authoritative forms of socialism where the state has complete control of society it is always even in the extreme forms where the government has increased control it has democratic processes to allow for any tyrannical or corrupt governments to be removed from office through legal means and more democratic less authoritarian forms of socialism can be installed in place of these authoritarian versions by the voting public.In every so called socialist country private enterprises,state owned corporations were the predominant form of companies present and cooperatives were a small percentage who could no elect their leaders,could not decide worker etc regulations,taxes on a federal level meaning their had very little control over anything.Remember the point of socialism is to democraticize society and the workplace in both a federal and individual level and thus bring everything such as the workplace and the state itself under the control of workers hence the phrase workers revolution.The purpose of socialism is to ensure that all facets of society including the workplace and all actions of the state are under the control of the workers not the state.In these countries the leaders carried out illegal coups thus never elected and their actions including deciding who was the next leader was never democratically elected which cannot occur in socialism only state capitalism with for Venezuela the country had Chavez and Maduro democratically elected and changes to the constitution were democratically decided and they were cooperatives but the private sector has two thirds control of the economy and state owned corporations which cannot occur in socialism.Authoritarian governments can thus only occur occur and take place within capitalist economic systems not socialist or communist systems.Some types of socialism involves the government having decreased control of the economy with others having almost no government presence with money and cooperatives still being present ie anarcho socialism.Democratic socialism as espoused by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is not a type of socialism it is in fact a form of capitalism as  the state is allowed to nationalise sectors of the economy and private enterprises are allowed to exist which is not allowed in socialism.In democratic socialism each private business must have a set number of its board of directors consist of a set percentage of its workers say between 20-50% thus allowing the workers have a democratic say its operations but they are still not cooperatives and they the economic system is not socialist it is capitalist again because private enterprises,nationalisation and state owned enterprises are allowed to exist something which cant exist in any type of socialism.The control of the government over private enterprises is just as limited in free market capitalism making no different than neoliberalism and the capitalism of Donald Trump etc as the state can only do the same things as it can in other forms of capitalism such as set down regulations with the key differences being it is mandatory for healthcare and education to government run and all private enterprises must have a set amount of workers on their board of directors roughly 20-50% to ensure that workers have a say in how they are run.The same by laws of business such as boom and bust cycles,invisible hand of the market determine the fate and success of businesses and supply and demand etc seen in neoliberalism and free market capitalism are allowed to exist in socialism especially market socialismo.Due to the presence of private enterprises which is not allowed in socialism,democratic socialism as espoused by Bernie Sanders etc could be considered a form of capitalism not socialism and might as well be called democratic capitalism.Therefore Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocazio Cortez are capitalists not socialists or communists.Decentralised planning of the economy in true market socialism espoused by 99% of socialists allows the spontaneous nature of prices,choices made by consumers,supply and demand,markets and boom and bust cycles determine the fate of business etc just like in laissez-faire,libertarian,free market capitalism meaning the state cannot plan the economy as in state capitalism.Mergers,acquisitions,takeovers of businesses that occur in capitalism can also take place in socialism.Thus the same laws and by laws of businesses that exists in free market capitalism would still exist in socialism particularly market socialism such as the profit motive and boom and bust cycles,allowing the invisible hand of the market to determine the fate and succes of businesses as well as allowing business to compete amongst each other is still allowed in all forms of socialism especially market socialism but the difference is that CEOs and managers don’t exist with all businesses being worker cooperatives and collectives run by their employees themselves allowing profits to be shared within the confines of each businesses thus meaning each business is still allowed to compete with other businesses.The governments role in society and the economy is almost non existent as all actions of the state is democratically decided by the workers of all business thus ensuring the government has limited control of both society and the economy.All departments of private enterprises exist such as marketing departments,accounting,research and development etc except they work together collaborativily and democratically rather under the directions of a corporate CEO.The ownership of the means of production can be based on direct ownership by the users of the productive property through worker cooperations or commonly owned by all of society with management and control delegated to those who operate/use the means of production; or public ownership by a state apparatus.Public ownership refers to the creation of autonomous collective and cooperative institutions..Cooperatives and collectives are the predominant type of  businesses in all forms of socialism.It is possible that all attempts at socialism descended into state capitalism because like communism the technological advances to allow it to occur did not exist with for example the internet,computer networks to allow one to communicate with large groups of workers of the same cooperative from across the world and lacked constitutional safeguards and the internet etc to allow for freedom of thought and computer systems and AI to effectively coordinate large scale farms etc.Some socialists feel that in a socialist economy,at least the ”commanding heights” of the economy must be publicly owned by the state though this is not a prequisite.Management and control over the activities of enterprises are based on self-management and self-governance,with equal power-relations in the workplace to maximise occupational autonomy.A socialist form of organisation would eliminate controlling hierarchies so that only a hierarchy based on technical knowledge in the workplace remains.In socialism all business would be either cooperatives and collectives where they would be run entirely by the workers themselves with no hierarchies as seen in corporations and state owned corporations in state capitalist Soviet Russia,Maoist China etc.Every member would have decision-making power in the business and enterprise and would be able to participate in establishing its overall policy objectives.The policies/goals would be carried out by the technical specialists that form the coordinating hierarchy of the firm, who would establish plans or directives for the work community to accomplish these goals.Collective ownership is the ownership of means of production by all members of a group for the benefit of all its members.A cooperative (also known as co-operative, co-op, or coop) is “an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic,social,and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned enterprise“.Cooperatives are democratically owned by their members,with each member having one vote in electing the board of directors if they exist or the board of directors consisting of the workers themselves.State enterprises may exist in nationalised or more correctly publicly owned enterprises.All enterprises and business in a true market socialist country would consist of only coops,collectives with zero state control of any business or means of production and zero private businesses and privatisation of the economy.All business,farms,factories etc are worker owned and thus operated and controlled by the workers themselves and not that state or privately owned.This means profits are shared equally and all workers have a democratic say in the operation of them such as working hours,working conditions etc as well as hiring and firing,the creation of new products to their portfolio and addition of new services and thus worker run with zero state control with each person having one vote.In socialism the same businesses and enterprises that provide the public with goods and services such as hotels,restaurant chains,retail outlets etc and manufactured products that exists in a capitalist systems also exist the difference is that is they are run differently with no hierarchical structures and profits are shared equally meaning the more money and profits a business or enterprise makes the more money each person as part of each one makes thus making everyone more richer the more money the business makes rather than the CEO and manager gaining an increase in wage in proportion to profits while everyone else is paid a flat wage.As a result in market socialism because profits are shared equally between all employees in each business the more profits a business makes each week,month,year the higher the wages of every employee in the business involved rises and the richer everyone gets.Thus workers may in their contract be rewarded a set percentage of profits based on their occupation or profits may be shared equally but in proper socialism whatever the contract is the wages of each employee as part of an enterprise and business rises and falls in response to the overall profits and success of a business encouraging them to work harder as the more successful and profitable it is the more each employee is paid every week,month,year and thus causes them to be more competitive with other business as like in capitalism the socialist businesses are constantly competing with each other for market share and profits.By having wages set by the sharing of profits that rises and falls in proportion to how much profits are made every year this negates the need for a federal minimum wage as successful cooperatives would provide on average yearly wages of at least $100,000 – $1,000,000 or more which is currently paid by white collar workers which would cause those with low profits and wages to either decide to go bankrupt or merge with a successful one to increase wages.If a person is sloppy and lazy then everyone else suffers in the workplace and customers lose interest,then the business loses profits and everyone’s wages including that sloppy person falls as a result – this forces people to make an extra effort to please customers and increase productivity and from a capitalists viewpoint this system would negate the need for a federal minimum wage as instead of businesses going bankrupt from having to pay a flat high federal minimum wage such as the proposed $15 minimum wage the profits of all employees even a CEO and manager in a democratic socialist system espoused by Bernie Sanders etc where this could work would make him profits alongside his employees getting higher wages in proportion to higher profits.Since all profits of cooperatives and collectives are shared equally amongst all workers the more successful and thus profitable a business becomes the higher the wages for all workers becomes making everyone richer with the more unsuccessful it becomes and the lower the profits fall then the lower wages for everyone becomes forcing workers to put in that little bit extra effort in pleasing customers and the each other by being more polite,preventing mistakes,providing more and better products and services,being on time and not making any mistakes that would drag the business down and increase worker satisfaction as they know that if they work harder and don’t screw up then their wages will go up and they will become richer.It would even encourage them to work longer hours and extra shifts.This in contrast to capitalism and privately owned businesses where asides from the CEO or manager who is the only person whose wages rises in proportion to the profits all other employees under him are paid a single flat wage every week,month and year that always stays the same causing them to lose interest in pleasing themselves,each other  and customers etc as they are doing the same boring repetitious work for the same flat wage and as a result get cranky and are prone to mistakes and always lobby their boss for raises,better working conditions,holidays,maternity leave as well as not to push for automation and outsourcing jobs to third world countries and lobby politicians for higher taxes on their wealthy bosses to fund higher worker benefits and federal minimum wages,form trade unions etc.This is the exact opposite of both what their wealthy bosses want,what is present in cooperatives and collectives and of socialism and is why you have so many people hating their job and their employers and why you have have such a large anti capitalist and anti globalist sentiment amongst liberals especially progressives.In a purely market socialism economy consumers would still have the same wide variety and choice of services such as competing hotels,restaurants,shops,enterprises etc including franchised ones and independent ones and the same wide variety of manufactured goods such as vehicles(Porsches,Ferrari’s,BMWs,Mercedes Benz),electronics(smartphones,4K televisions,video game consoles),clothing and food(fizzy drinks,juice drinks,alcoholic drinks,pizzas,ready meals,crisps,chocolate bars,breakfast cereal),restaurants(Burger King,McDonalds,Wendy’s and diffferent ethnic cuisine restaurants),websites(YouTube,Facebook,Onlyfans,adult pornography sites) etc as in a capitalist society that compete against each other for money from consumers but the difference is that CEOs and managers dont exist as all enterprises and businesses are cooperatives and collectives with zero state control and they are democratically run by all workers in a non hierarchical structure with them having less staff via managers,CEOs and board directors eliminated by being unecessary with profits shared equally amongst all workers.The state has no interference in their every day to day running of people’s lives.The absence of CEOs etc means workers are not paid a flat wage every week or every year but rather their wages constantly fluctuates in response to the success and failure of the business as profits are shared across all employees.The profit motive still exists in a purely market socialist economy with cooperative business that compete with each other for customers still exists as money still exists with international trade,GDP as all the by laws of free market still exist.As a result cooperatives work to please customers and gain profits the diffference is the wages are shared equally and the workers have complete control of the business.Thus by having all profits shared equally the more profits and more successful a business is then the higher the wages of everyone goes up and the richer each employees becomes this forces people to work harder,be more polite and be better workers overall as it means if they keep and gain more customers then their wages will go up but if they are lazy and sloppy then the business suffers and their wages go down and they lose their job.The less successful a business is the lower the wages of workers forcing them to work harder and compete with their competitors as in socialism cooperatives are allowed to compete with each just as the same way do in capitalism.This incentivises people to work harder,make less mistakes,be more polite and not screw up because if they do then their wages decrease.Worker review programmes do still exist but there is a better incentive to improve ones performance with the more profitable a business the happier workers are as their wages increases thus leading to people being satisfied with their jobs.The profit motive still exist but the profits are shared equally between all workers and not just one person.The sharing of profits eliminates federal minimum wages completely as it reflects a persons hard work and also because the proportional rise in wages is for successful business is always more than any federal minimum wage that could exists that eats into the revenue of CEOs etc and forces them to raise prices as higher minimum wages leaves less money for the CEO with most cooperatives that are successful would have wages be between $51.50 – $1,590 an hour leading to the an income of at least $74,160 – $2,289,600 a year for most Americans working low skill jobs that don’t need a college job.Increaases in wages do not eat into profits because the profits are shared equally between all workers as wages.Furthermore since profits are shared amongst all employees equally then a person may not have to work too many days or shifts as they may only need to work one or two shifts a week each lasting as little to one to eight hours  and still become wealthy particularly in large multinationals that are successful with some even through computers etc allowing them to work from home such as accounting and those that manage stock.They may even have longer holidays such as three month summer holidays and two to three weeks for Easter,Christmas etc.One will still be paid for profits earned during days of the week and months of the year they are not working ie one will earn wages from profits earned during weekends and during the summer and Christmas etc that are allowed time off thus one may only have to work a small fraction of the time that they do in capitalism and yet still be earning exponentially higher wages.The fact that all wages based on profits are shared equally means a person would make exponentially more money for fewer working hours each week with the business expanding through mergers and franchising or even buying out competitors.This is again because they are given wages based on profits incurred by the business for every  days of the week and year they are not working meaning a person can make exponentially more money every year despite working less with a person wages based on the profits of the business and not how many hours they work every week.Peoples wages are based on the profits of the businesses and not based on how many hours a week or year they work,what type of work is done or whats written in any legal contract meaning a person can become at least well off enough to survive or even be very wealthy and at least earn between $50,000 – $200,000 a year when working for a mid sized cooperative despite only working only one or two days a week,once a fortnight or once a month with automation etc possibly meaning they can become even more wealthy for working only once every few months and once every year.As a result of this shifts can be only a few hours roughly half as long as normal ones in a capitalist system with the opening hours also shorter especially at weekends.A person will get wages simply for being hired and will be paid profits earned throughout the entire year not from  the amount of hours they work meaning from a single cooperative one may get the same amount of wages if they worked one day than if they work five days a week.Furthermore retail cooperatives may also branch out into online retail more often in order to lessen the working hours for employees and opening hours for physical stores since they would have all work done by the customer.One may only have to even be employed by a cooperative for a few months or weeks and then quit to earn this much.A person will work exponentially less but will be earning exponentially more money.To increase ones wages exponentially one can thus work for several different cooperatives each day of the week as much as three to seven different cooperatives and still have significantly long holidays as one will be given shares of the profits from three to seven different cooperatives earning at least $200,000 – $1,000,000 a year way more than the $31,200 – $50,000 a year or less that most Americans would earn.If possible one could work for as much as a dozen or even hundred different cooperatives at a time during the year that are in the same town,village,city,state or country by travelling between them using their second homes or staying briefly at the homes of friends and family and also using cheap hotels and motels or using computer networks and phones work from home for accounting,secretary work or similar occupations for multiple cooperatives around the world with one working for one of each different dozen or hundred cooperatives one or two days a week with software doing the most time consuming and boring work with them still having sizeable breaks such as long summer holidays etc with them only working for each of these one hundred different cooperatives one day of the year leaving at least 265 days of the year free for holidays such as birthdays,anniversaries,Christmas holidays each a month long with summer holidays lasting three months and still be earning the shared profits of each of these individual separate one hundred cooperatives combined despite only doing the most time consuming and boring work with them still having sizeable breaks such as long summer holidays etc with them only working for each of these one hundred different cooperatives one day of the year leaving at least 265 days of the year free the majority of it at least 72% of the year free for holidays such as birthdays,anniversaries,Christmas holidays each a month long with summer holidays lasting three months and still be earning the shared profits of each of these individual separate one hundred cooperatives combined despite only doing  at least only a few hours a day for each shift in each cooperatives because as stated even doing a few hours a day one will be given a share of all profits from all cooperatives they work for over the year combined thus exponentially increasing their incomes with again this being low skill work that doesn’t require college degrees such as working in Wall Mart,McDonalds and all major corporations worldwide.One would work only at most 3-4 months of the year and have at least 8-9 months of the year free from work to spend with friends,families and pets thus allowing one to have exponentially much more free time with families and still have exponentially more time with families etc with them using computer networks and phones to work some if not most of the four months of work from home saving on transportation costs and be able to spend spare time with home and familial responsibilities democratic process could allow one to decide and plan out ahead which days,weeks or months of the year one would have free with each worker having different rotas for each cooperatives.One could have a wide variety of jobs that require different skills and tasks thus giving one variety and preventing one becoming bored of the same repetitive tasks and preventing them bringing each cooperative down as they would be working in each one only one day of the year.Since they would be working in each job only once a year or even month then they if sick or sloppy due to any reason they will not bring the business down and will not risk themselves getting fired and if sick they can have a replacement and spend their free time sick.Since working in different cooperatives only once a year and for at most a few years then this means that they of having a bad day will not drag the cooperatives revenue and ranking down at all.A persons employee review will be almost non existent as they will only be working for a specific cooperative omce a week,month or even once a year.Each person in order to gain 10-1,000 times more money than normal in a capitalist system that is at least $312,000 – $56,000,000 a year would in socialism only need to work only one day a year for a single successful multinational cooperative since they are legally guaranteed an equal share of the cooperatives profits by working just one day of the year because of working that one day they are are automatically allowed legally an equal share of the business profits.That means people would have to work exponentially less than normal and to enjoy an upper class lifestyle on par with the upper middle class would only have to work only one day of the year every year and would have 364 days off holidays.This earning $312,000 – $56,000,000 for working one day of the year would apply for low skill jobs in corporations like McDonald’s,Wall Mart and Amazon wherein one was working flipping burgers,working as a cashier,working as a store greeter and working in a relay centre  – in a capitalist system they would have work nine months of the year for 10 – 1,000 years to earn this much that is to earn at least $312,000 – $56,000,000 because they would earn only $31,200 a year at least possibly $56,000 a year.This would also mean that other high skilled people in jobs that need college degrees or even basic training who feel underpaid such as doctors,lawyers,prison guard or police officer or YouTuber who wanted to make a little extra on the side and a large boost would also just work one day in McDonald’s,Wall Mart to get an extra  $312,000 – $56,000,000 boost to their income.A person in a socialist system would be able to live a lifestyle on par with the upper middle class and even wealthy elite and live in mansions or billionaires row the most expensive neighbourhood in the world and yet only work one day a year in low skill jobs such as for Amazon and McDonalds.However this fact would in fact encourage people to work more and in fact work for multiple cooperatives every year with them working for each one one day a year as doing so would increase their wages exponentially.As a result of this one can exponentially increase their wages every year by working for multiple cooperatives during the year.People would shop around for cooperatives that are profitable and thus have higher wages.The more cooperatives they work for even for just one day every year the higher their wages and incomes rise exponentially every year because they gain the combined wages that are the result of profits that are equally shared from each individual cooperatives they work for.Thus getting a guaranteed share profits for one days work would in fact encourage people to work for multiple cooperatives every year as much as several dozen or a hundred because working for only one cooperative just for day of the year would only make them so much while working for multiple cooperatives as much as a dozen or hundred each one day of the year would increase their wages,income and wealth exponentially every year because they would gain the equal share of profits from multiple cooperatives and not just one.This would rather than have people work only one day to get a modest income would encourage people to in fact work more every year thus incentives hard work more so than in capitalism and is a good safety net if one cooperative goes out of business,one gets fired  and adopts more automation as they have others to fall back on and can have some time to look for extra cooperatives to work for.This of note to people who work multiple minimum wage jobs in these corporations but are barely scrapping by living pay check to paycheck.Thus actual socialism involving nothing but cooperatives would encourage people to work multiple jobs at once throughout the year and not just one job one day of the year as people would earn the combined profit shares of multiple cooperatives exponentially increasing their income every year compared to if they just worked for one cooperative..If one is to be fired they will still be legally guaranteed a share of that cooperatives profits for the year at the end of the year with them also unable to drag down a cooperatives performance or wages if they sloppy etc since they would only work for each one once day a year.This legal guarantee could be a federal regulation voted by the voting populace or be part of each cooperative due to the democratic processes because in socialism all working regulations are voted and decided by the populace including workers.Computer networks could be used to do other work from home such as secretarial work,accounting,customer service work etc and any work that needs to be done involving computers during their eight months off with software doing the most time consuming and boring work of the four months of work from home saving on transportation costs and be able to spend spare time with home and familial responsibilities democratic process could allow one to decide and plan out ahead which days,weeks or months of the year one would have free with each worker having different rotas for each cooperatives.Computer networks could be used to do all of their jobs including software work and allow them to oversee and control highly automated and computerised factories,relay centres,accounting work etc.Using computer networks could allow a person to not only work from home but work for a dozen cooperatives at once for one day thus exponentially increasing the companies they work for and exponentially increase their wages and income every year.One from home could act as an accountant and/or software developer for multiple cooperatives that have offices across the world with reports sent to computer networks of each cooperative with customer service also done at home.This ability to work for multiple cooperatives especially from home would give people not only more money every year but also more variety in their skills and work they do rather than one single set of skills.Automation would exponentially increase productivity and exponentially lower the amount of labour one does thus exponentially increasing profits and there fore increase wages while also exponentially decreasing working hours and exponentially lowering the amount of hours ones works every day.On days one is not working one could use Onlyfans and vlogging on YouTube to gain extra money through Monitisation and Patreaon.As a result of working one day a year for different cooperatives as much as a dozen or a hundred different cooperatives throughout the year a person would be legally guaranteed given wages that are an equal share of each separate business profits thus ones wages would increase exponentionally  every year for working for different cooperatives instead of working for just one especially when automation is adopted and them earning at least $312,000 – $56,000,000 a year with due to automation one would work for only a few hours a day less than the 8 hour 9-5 rota doing mostly work that would not be laborious or dangerous thus eliminating fears of getting overworked etc meaning a person would work exponentially shorter hours but be earning exponentially more money and wages.This would disincentive laziness and encourage people to find work at dozens or hundreds of cooperatives throughout the year as the promise of exponentially higher wages for working for multiple cooperatives  would incentivise people to work more to get increased wages and thus allow them to retire much earlier than normal as early as 13-32 and thus spend more time with families and be able to start families as early as 22..In a capitalist system people who work multiple jobs only work a flat wage and only do so because their employers have other people to hire and this can’t hire the same person for the same job all the time.If a person worked one day a year for a hundred different cooperatives with them working for one cooperative one day a year spaced out together then its likely their wages would increase to between $31,200,000 – $5,600,000,000 a year meaning they would only have to work for at most 10 years and at least 1-5 years to gain a sizeable retirement fund of at least several million or several hundred million dollars and retire much earlier than normal between the ages of 14-30 and only have to work only thee months a years.Those who work for 275 different cooperatives a year with three months holidays will earn between $85,800,000 – $15,400,000,000 a year and will earn about $858,000,000 – $154,000,000,000 in a decade.This would apply to those working in multiple cooperatives that include low skill jobs such as burger flipper at Mcdonalds,janitor,cashier and store greeter at Wall Mart etc who currently earn $31,200 – $56,000 a year or less.People in high skill jobs such as lawyers,prison guard,doctor and YouTuber etc who feel underpaid or want a slight boost in their income can take a year out of their job and then work these jobs for a year and then retire.This means that most Americans at least 60-80% who currently work in minimum wage jobs in McDonald’s etc would after 10 years in a socialist hellhole as espoused by those commie socialist dictators Nicolas Maduro Moros,Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Bernie Sanders by the time they retire in their early 20s would after working a decade as a janitor,flipping burgers and as a cashier could be worth at least $154,000,000,000  that’s 51.3 times wealthier than Donald Trump who is currently worth $3,000,000,000 who was born with a silver spoon shoved up his ass and never worked a single day of his life and would certainly be worth more all his demonic hellspawn and Melania and that little brat Kushner combined again who never worked a single day of their life.In a capitalist system they would need to work nine months of the year for 2,750,000 – 4,935,897 years to earn this much.One could even retire at 13-18 with several hundred million dollars.If possible it could be as high as $231,000,000,000 if they worked for very successful major cooperatives that made them  $56,000,000 a year each if they worked an extra 5 years until the age of 27 making them wealthier than Mark Zuckerberg($51,400,000), Charles Koch($66,000,000,000),Sergey Brin($90,000,000,000), Warren Buffet($93,000,000,000),Larry Page($94,900,000,000),Bill Gates($103,000,000),Jeff Bezos($136,000,000,000) etc all for working as cashiers,flipping burgers,janitors,in relay centres in Amazon,McDonald’s and Wall Mart.In our current capitalist system they would make only $31,200 -$56,000 a year which would take them 4,125,000 – 7,403,846 years to make this much.This shows just how much Americans are being screwed over by voting for Republicans and Corporate Democrats and not progressives and how socialism outrumps capitalism.The remaining minority 20-40% would be multi millionaires with at least $100,000,000 – $900,000,000 in their bank account rather than scraping by on paycheck to paycheck.They could live with their parents until their early or mid 20s and when they retire they could buy their own luxury apartment or mansions etc and never work a single day ever again,enjoy a lavish lifestyle  and leave sizeable inheritances for their children who would also be this wealthy and in turn could pass even exponentially more into the next generation – wheras in capitalism most people at this point would be graduating from college with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt and would be starting from scratch on unpaid internships and then have their mortagage to worry about which would leave them and their children when they die in severe debt for most of their life if not forever.Very few Americans would be homeless,poor or scraping by on paycheck to paycheck and almost none would be going bankrupt when they get sick and need to pay medical bills and for lifesaving treatment and very few would be dying prematurely from preventable medical conditions.They would certainly be much wealthier than most liberal elites in Hollywood who are only worth a few million dollars who live in mansions  and use private jets in capitalism with they themselves able to afford mansions and private jets.As a result most people between the ages of 13-22 could retire and never work again and buy or build a luxury home in an exotic tropical country or island or carry out luxury refurbishements and extensions on their existing homes and never worry about debts and going bankrupt from medical bills.Very few people would go to college with it only reserved for only specialist jobs such as medicine and law etc.The same would apply to most Europeans etc including in Britain,Ireland and across the developed world such as Austrailia,Russia etc.This is how Americans are constantly shooting them selves in the foot by voting for Republicans and Corporate Democrats and not progressives like Bernie Sanders because if America was a socialist hellhole then the vast majority of Americans would be either multi-millionaires and even billionaires after a decade or even a single year of work between the ages of 13-22 rather than scraping by on paycheck to paycheck.If your are Republican and you voted for Donald Trump etc and other republican people in congress and govenors and you work multiple jobs in McDonald’s,Wall Mart and in Amazon just to barley put food in the table and pay bills you’re an idiot whose been brainwashed into believing propaganda spread by Faux News about kindergarten level understandings of economics etc.Sweatshop workers in Africa and Asia in the developing world who make clothing for garment industry,constructing smartphones etc which currently earn $180 – $365 a year by working for one cooperative could earn at least $1,800  – $365,000 a year by working for one cooperative but but if they work for a hundred cooperatives can gain up to $180,000 – $36,500,000 a year again only working three months a year and earning between $1,800,000 – $365,000,000 in a decade.If they work for 275 different cooperatives for one of the year and thus work for 275 days a year  with three months holidays they could earn as much as $495,000 – $100,375,000 a year or $4,950,000 – $1,003,750,000 after a decade.In a capitalist system it would take them 27,500 – 2,750,00 years to gain this much.Working until 27 they could earn as much as $1,505,625,000 a year.This would be not as much as Americans but enough to lift themselves out of poverty and thrn buy a luxury apartment can then at 22 can decide to work for 10 years in McDonald’s etc to get $154,000,000,000 by the time they are 32.Once a group of people retire after 1-10 years then another group of people can work 1-10 years and in turn retire to allow another group of people.That would be enough to allow to buy their own luxury homes or even build them and again retire after 1-10 years.This is a very quick way to bring hundreds of millions or billions of people out poverty and into a lifestyle on par with the very wealthy in the West making them multi millionaires and even billionaires very quickly in as little as decade or even a year.Instead of a few thousand billionaires in the world there would be several hundred million or even a few billion billionaires in the world and the rest would be multi millionaires with several hundred million dollars in their bank accounts with almost no one living in poverty worldwide.Thus socialism is the only way to eliminate poverty.This system of getting a share of profits from multiple cooperatives would exponentially increase ones wages they get each year despite working exponentionally less and would encourage people to seek employment at multiple different cooperatives during the year thus keeping them working and not just work one or two days a week or year as one would be able to arrange schedules to get work for most of the year or a good portion in order to earn exponentially more money but still have enough time off of the year to enjoy time with family and ones hobbies.This would make the vast majority of Americans multi millionaires worth at least $100,000,000 and even billionaires by the time they reach their early twenties with this also applying to the developing world such as Africa and Asia eliminating poverty very quickly.In as little as a decade you would create hundreds of millions of multi millionaires and even billionaires thus lifting the entire population of the developing world out of poverty.So how exactly does socialism make everyone poor now when the vast majority of the population are now multi millionaires and billionaires?How is lifting hunfreds of millions of people and even billions of people out of poverty and making them multi millionaires and even billionaires evil and a bad thing?Most Americans in their early 20s in a capitalist system have just graduated college with hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt,indentured and indebted for life and are looking for their first jobs and probably still living with their parents due to this indebted servitude.Thus in socialism a person would be encouraged to work for different cooperatives each year as they will get their share from multiple cooperatives and thus the more cooperatives they work for if even for one day the more money they will earn each year thus exponentially increasing their income every year for only work 100-275 days a year.Furthermore a person could do any job within a cooperative such as low skill labour that doesn’t need a college education such as cashiers,burger flippers and janitors etc and still get at $365,000 – $31,200,000 from each cooperative for working only one day.This thus gives one more flexibility in the type of jobs they can do rather than narrow fields that require college degrees meaning a person can do virtually any low skill jobs for only a few years and still become multi-millionaires.In capitalism a person even if they work for different corporations will not get an exponential increase in wages because instead of being paid a share of the profits from each company they are paid a flat wage for how many hours they work meaning working for different companies will pay the same as if they are working for only one company with the wages only being different for what type of job it is and not the success of the business thus further restricts those without college degrees.A person in capitalism will need a college degree that then specifies them for a specific job or narrow field of jobs and to earn anything above $31,200 a year whereas in socialism they could work without a college degree,highschool diploma and earn between $100,000 – $1,000,000 or more a year doing low skill jobs such as flipping burgers,stacking shelves etc in WallMart and McDonald’s.Even If they work for different jobs and some pay more per hour they are not much of an exponential increase because the value of their work is being extracted by their boss.This is because in capitalism a persons wages are determined by hourly wages and how long one works each day,week,month and year and people only work for multiple jobs in capitalism because they can only work in each job a certain amount of hours and days a week as their are other people who are employed in each company.Current capitalist system can bring people out of poverty but very slowly and it is usually through CEOs and managers exploiting workers meaning workers only get a small wage between $31,200 – $50,000 if dealing with the west with in Africa and Asia the wages being significantly less as little as $365 – $3,650 a year as most of the wealth goes to CEOs using them as cheap labour and relies on unproven trickle down economics that does not actually help people out of poverty.People can be lifted out of poverty but just barely with in socialism they are being brought to a high standard of living on par with the very wealthy in as little as year with capitalism it would require 10-1,000 years to achieve the same thing.Furthermore capitalism leads to extremely wide income and wealth gaps with those on the lower scale earning $31,200 – $50,000 a year and that is only in America in Asia and Africa the lower end scale is $365 – $3,650 a year with only a few millionaires etc produced while socialism creates large amounts of multi millionaires and even billionaires with small gaps between income levels and even if large gaps exist the lowest income level will be at least $365,000 – $3,650,000 a year meaning even the bottom income group will have enough to live a comfortable lifestyle on par with wealthy Europeans Americans with this eliminating poverty completely.This is why socialism is exponentially better at eliminating poverty than capitalism.Its prevents laziness as is incentivises people to work more jobs to get exponentially more money.Children as young as 12 years old can work only one year and then retire at 13.As a result to get a sizeable retirement fund of at least several million to a hundred million dollars a year most people could work only three months a year for 1-10 years begging at the ages of 12 years of age thus retiring at the age of 13-22 years of age and this would include low skill jobs in companies such as in Amazon,Wall Mart,McDonald’s etc that dont need college degrees with this being the lower income bracket.Those who work for dozens or hundreds of cooperatives in high skill jobs that require college degrees would earn exponentially more possibly several billion year.As a result most people would have no student debt and rather than having only at most 20 years of retirement as an elderly citizen they could retire in their early teens and have at least 72 years long retirement.Thus it would encourage one to keep themselves busy with multiple jobs incentivising people to work for multiple cooperatives at once throughout the year rather than one as they would earn the combined shares of multiple cooperatives thus exponentially increasing the amount of money a person earns every year thus incentivising people to work more and would also discentivise people wanting to live on flat social welfare programmes such as social welfare and also universal basic incomes which would only exist to deal with emergency situations such as pandemics,natural disasters and economic recessions especially on a national or global scale with it causing people to shop around so to speak to look for new jobs in different fields and also those whose cooperatives are earning high profits.In otherwards by having social welfare and universal basic income be flat and people earning their share of profits this system in socialism would in fact encourage people to seek work and employment with multiple cooperatives during the year.In otherwards it would encourage people to work multiple jobs rather than having only one shift at one cooperative a week or year and not just sit around all day as the promise of getting the combined shared profits from multiple cooperatives rather than flat wages in capitalism and a flat social welfare would in socialism in fact encourage people to work multiple jobs throughout the year and encourage them to become harder workers because rather than getting a flat wage for each job or from one single cooperative they would get the combined wages from each successful cooperatives thus increasing their wages and income exponentially.By earning the combined wages of multiple cooperatives it increases wages exponentially thus encourages people to work multiple jobs at once in different cooperatives during the year as working in one cooperative would ensure one would get only $100,000-$300,000 a year from working for one cooperative and could 10-100 times between $1,000,000 – $30,000,000 from working in a hundred cooperatives..This means even those without college degrees who work in retail,fast food restaurants etc can earn as much as $500,000-$3,072,000 a year.Very few if any people would work more than 1-10 years and the concept of working till 65 or even working past the age of 13 or even 20 or 30 would be unheard of.Furthermore this would eliminate 90-99% of crime especially theft and murders releated to money as one would have to work very little and still earn enough to buy luxury apartments and homes and expensive things or have luxury rennovations and roof etc extensions on homes and apartments and still retire after a few years of work.Thus true socialism not the faux socialism rewards hard work by encouraging people to work multiple jobs not due to necessity but to increase their wages exponentially thus having them climb the social ladder much more quicker than in capitalism.Furthermore it acts as a safety net with if one is laid off due to one of the cooperatives they work is going out of business due to being outcompeted and a recession or them adopting full automation then they will have saved more than enough to survive a few years without work,retire early or still be working for other cooperatives to have a stable income.Since wages are determined by profits people will seek employment in successful cooperatives etc with them even doing work in low level or mildly successful cooperatives as each one will have all profits added to their wages with even low level cooperatives getting employees a little bit extra on the side.If one only worked for ten to a hundred cooperatives where the profit shares results in wages that are only $10,000-$50,000 will mean working for 10-100 of these will get one $100,000-$5,000,000 a year while working for 10-100 that result in wages of $100,000-$1,000,000 a year will result in one getting $1,000,000-$100,000,000 a year.Thus even working for a combination of low level cooperatives,midly successful cooperatives and successful ones altogether will still mean the average person will earn at least $100,000-$3,307,200 a year for only three months of the year.Workers to earn these wages would not need a college degree or even highschool diploma but just basic reading,writing and numeracy skills that they would have at 12-14 which is when they would start working.Thus by 22-32 they could retire early and be living by themselves with zero college debt,zero mortgages and decide to not work another day of their lives even live news anchors could do this with the only people not doing so and starting careers at 22 and retiring at 65 would be surgeons and lawyers and other people in white collar jobs.The vast majority of people in a socialist system would be retiring from work after only 5-20 years and then would only have to work 100 days of the year with it almost unheard of them working until 65 with them spending their 20s and 30s enjoying a early retirement and focus.These people who retire at 22 could continue to work for another few decades or they could use youtube and Onlyfans for Monitisation and Patreon based income.Furthermore since retiring from work at 22 they could start families and neither parents would need to work any more thus allowing them to focus 100% of their time on their children negating the need for au pairs and pre schools or in most cases elementary or secondary schools.since people would need only basic literacy and numeracy skills it would mean people would begin working at age 12 and children would only need to stay in school until 12 or they could be homeschooled by parents to have basic literacy and numeracy skills.On average the vast majority who currently live in minimum wage would in socialism earn sizeable enough incomes to the point they need not get a college or even highschool education and need only work at most 5-10 years or even at most 20 years and not 40 years to gain sizeable retirement funds.People would work for only a third of the year but make exponentionally more money and only at most 5-10 years and also have both parents working and possible working age children to further increase profits exponentially.In comparison most in capitalism people who work one or two jobs five to seven days a week with almost no free time during the year just to make between $31,200 – $50,000 and in some cases would involve both parents of a household to work this long.Thus people who work multiple jobs in our current system and are barely scraping by in capitalism earning $31,200 – $50,000 or less a year would be through working several jobs at once in socialism be considered middle class and upper middle class earning at least $200,000 – $3,307,200 a year with long periods of the year free from work.For those of you who are earning these wages in multiple jobs you are being screwed over by capitalism by voting for Republicans and Corporate Democrats.Having all members of all family both wife and husband and even children aged 12-17 working for at least seven or again a hundred different cooperatives each in person and using computer networks could exponentially increase the annual earnings of a family of at least four to seven individuals(consisting of two to five children)to earn as much as several million dollars a year as much as $10,000,000 or more a year.Children can start at 12 and then retire at 22.Automation can be used to eliminate most of dangerous and labourious work for most employees further decreasing the length of working days to a few hours exponentionally but still increasing productivity,in turn increasing profits and thus increasing wages exponentially for each person thus meaning each person would earn exponentially more money for working  exponentially less hours.It eliminating a full person or while groups of people would be only done for those who are retiring or being fired with in both cases them already gaining a sizeble income.Furthermore this can if adopted by more cooperatives will mean a person can work for multiple cooperatives during the year thus increasing their wages exponentially.Unnecessary jobs such as board of directors,HR departmnts will be eliminated and most remaining departments will be skimmed down to just what is needed to the bare minimum.Computer networks,phones etc including those that manage and control computer systems and automated systems etc would allow one to work for multiple cooperatives whose relay stations,offices etc are located across the world thus increasing their employment prospects exponentionally and at the same time increasing wages exponentially.These technologies would allow one to the secretary,receptionist,account,software engineer,web developer,managers of automated systems etc for dozens a hundred of cooperatives based across the world with them arranging when their working hours and shifts are.Thus a person would have increased wages but lower working hours than in a capitalist system.Decreasing the amount of people hired through automation,a person doing multiple jobs and eliminating unnecessary jobs would decrease the amount of workers by at least 40-50% and thus exponentially increasing the amount of income for each employee with mergers,acquisitions and takovers done to increase customers and thus profits as well.Those eliminated from these measures would likely seek employment at other business and also set up their own competing business or get work in other fields,retire with a sizeable retirement fund measuring in the several tens of millions and/or return at least a few years later.The same measures used in capitalism to increase profits for the CEO would be used to increase profits and wages for all people present with this meaning they could only have to work anywhere between at least five to ten years in order to earn a sizeable retirement then allowing other new people to move in alongside those formally laid off.In a purely socialist economic system the same wide variety of competing business such as Amazon,Microsoft,Pfizer,McDonalds,Starbucks,Wall Mart,Apple,YouTube,Air bnb,Adidas,Converse,Ambercombie and Fitch,Facebook,Twitter,Tik Tok,YouTube,Tesla and the same wide variety of products and services they provide such as smartphones,laptops,clothing,hamburgers,electric vehicles,pharmaceutical drugs etc and delivery services we have in a capitalist system would still exist it’s just that instead of being private enterprises run by a billionaire CEO who pays employees a flat  minimum wage these companies would be cooperatives or collectives and they instead be run by all employees of these companies giving each person an equal share of the companies weekly,monthly and yearly profits and each person would have a democratic say in the running of the business such as working conditions etc with these comprising of all employees such as those who work in the relay centres,cashiers,kitchens making burgers,store greeters and packers,sweat shops and on the factory line with those who are paid the least and currently in a capitalist system rely on federal minimum wages and whatever low flat wage is in their contract that allows them to earn at most $10,000-$30,000 a year would be in a socialist system in these large companies all be multi-millionaires or at least earning a six figure salary between $100,000 – $3,307,200 a year the same as lawyers,surgeons,doctors both general physicians and specialists,anaesthesiologists,software developers,wall street stock brokers,actuariests,dentists,airline pilots etc and other high paying jobs in America rather than minimum wage,rather than living pay check to pay check and scraping by rather than just the CEO being a multi millionaire and billionaire thus making them earn the value of their work encouraging them to work harder alongside them able to control working conditions through democratic process.People like Jeff Bezos,Mark Zuckerburg,Bill Gate’s etc would still be household names as the founders of cooperatives like Amazon,Microsoft etc they just wouldn’t be billionaires but rather multi millionaires like all of their employees.If they wanted to be billionaires they like their employees would have to get up off their lazy asses and work for multiple cooperatives during the year.In some cases their income like their employees may be as high as $3,072,000 a year for more successful cooperatives and if automation is used to increase productivity and profits and some retire as well of competing cooperatives carry out mergers or takeovers thus increasing profits and when you eliminate unnecessary staff such as board of directors,CEOs and all levels of management and HR department as well as having a single doing multiple jobs over the course of each week.Famous large national and multinational cooperatives include Ocean Spray,Aces Hardware,United Western Grocers,Mondragon corporation etc.These are socialist institutions where all actions of them are democratically decided by workers.They provide different goods and services for profit and are allowed to compete with other cooperatives  and private companies.They are cooperatives and would be the predominant if not the only form of institution in all types socialisms alongside collectives.In a socialist system these and other companies such as Amazon,Apple,Starbucks,McDonalds,Tesla etc would exist and they would still provide the same goods and services such as laptops,smartphones,hamburgers and online delivery etc it’s just that they would be cooperatives that are democratically run.Cooperatives can exist in all types of capitalist system including state capitalism it’s just they are now competing against private enterprises.On average the wages of all workers in these cooperatives are 10-1,000 times higher than people in the private sector who do the same types of jobs and work the same amount of time ie work in hardware stores,work as cashiers and work on farms.Cooperatives workers in all sectors of the economy such as retail,service industry,manufacturing and agriculture etc always almost on average make 10-1,000 times more money than their private sector workers in the same fields and same size of businesses.Low level mom and pop cooperatives would make 10-1,000 times more money than low level mom and pop independent corporations and businesses.They would not make as much as large multinational cooperatives just like private mom and pop corporations and businesses would not make as much as large multinational corporations.To make as much as large multinationals they could form mergers with large multinationals or with other mom and pop cooperatives thus increasing their customers,increasing their profits and thus increasing wages.This fact and the Democratic processes within them is why workers in cooperatives always in average score better on studies about worker happiness and fufillment than in either state owned corporations and private corporations.As a result of having all workers have democratic control of the business say through voting on working conditions etc it is not exploitation as each worker works with their fellow workers to ensure the business is innovative,successful and has good working conditions which is unlike private corporations where the CEO has unlimited control of everything.All cooperatives in a socialist system would have competing cooperative business that would still compete with each other for customers by providing different services,products and incentives and abide by same by laws of business as seen in capitalism and neoliberalism such as the profit motive,boom and bust cycles,invisible hand of the market determine the fate and success of businesses and supply and demand etc seen in neoliberalism and free market capitalism are allowed to exist in socialism especially market socialism with democratic process allowing for planned economies to be instated with all business regulations democratically decided upon thus keeping taxes low,environmental regulations strict but sensible and eliminating cronyism and corruption with each business have workers set up their own working conditions etc.Even sweat shop workers who create clothing,shoes,smartphones in China,Africa and Asia etc who work on between $0.08-$1 day or about  $180-$365 a year in third world countries would under this socialist system be earning a five or six figure salaries between $18,000 –  $365,000 a year not as much as Wall mart employees but a lot more than they do now at least 100-1,000 times more than they do in our current capitalist system.Then again they can increase their wages exponentially by working for multiple cooperatives as much as 10-100 meaning they could earn between $180,000 – $365,000,000 a year.and could afford adequate housing and electricity and enjoy a lifestyle on par with most wealthy middle and upper class lawyers,surgeons,doctors both general physicians and specialists,anaesthesiologists,software developers,wall street stock brokers,actuariests,dentists,airline pilots etc do in capitalism or even just on par with the middle class in Europe and America  meaning those who currently live in slums and can barely afford electricity and food could be living a standard of living on par with those who live in the suburbs of America with white picket fences and enough to get by..This would be true considering that everything in third world countries would be much  cheaper than in first world countries  and  $18,000 –  $365,000 a year would allow them to live a lifestyle similar to most lower to middle class people in Europe rather than abject poverty – they may be poor but they would be no longer living in abject poor and may even be living above the poverty line and some even reach lower to middle class especially considering most things would be cheap with this increasing the income of workers in cooperative farms and retail outlets etc.Thus those who currently are barely surviving on minimum wage in crappy 9-5 jobs as sweat shop workers,cashiers,burger flippers,store greeters and shelf packers,relay centre workers in capitalism would in socialism be earning as much as high paying white collar workers such as lawyers,surgeons,doctors both general physicians and specialists,anaesthesiologists,software developers,wall street stock brokers,actuariests,dentists,airline pilots etc currently do.In some case their income may be as high as $3,072,000 a year for more successful cooperatives and if automation is used to increase productivity and profits and some retire.The amount of wages a person gets that is a share of profits is dependent on the revenue of the entire corporation and businesses each year globally from all outlets worldwide  and its total number of employees globally worldwide with for large multinational cooperatives having all total revenue from all retail outlets around the globe shared amongst all workers it employs worldwide with the profits of each outlet then sent into a large treasury and then dispersed between all workers worldwide by being wired into their accounts by AI or a planner whose job is to this or agreements can be made to have each outlet separate from each other that have the wages of each outlet shared only with the workers of each outlet with some outlets wage system separated from each other and other merged together through democratic systems with studies done on local to global scale as to the best option with small independent mom and pop business whether they be independent hotels,retail outlets etc with only one outlet having its profits shared between all employees.In all cases whether small Independent Mom and pop business and large multinationals on average the employees earn 10 – 1,000 times than what they earn in a capitalist system.It would in the case of business and corporations that have multiple franchises and outlets in a country,region,continent and across the globe involve all global revenue shared between all workers from accounting,marketing,factory workers,cashiers etc worldwide in all outlets,franchises worldwide of a corporation that rises in proportion to the profits of all combined outlets worldwide.Computer networks,forums and computers and audio/visual phone calls like Skype would be used for all workers worldwide to meet with each other and discuss operations from the comfort of home.Conferences etc would allow representives from all outlets worldwide to meet with each other and discuss things in person with each one elected to represent their individual outlet or even all outlets in their state,country or region as decided and bring to the table their ideas and concerns.This is how large multinationals like Amazon,WallMart,McDonald’s etc would operate as global cooperatives.As stated automation would exponentially increase productivity and profits and thus exponentially increase wages with other measures done by people such as working for multiple high performing cooperatives around the world would increase their wages exponentially meaning working for multiple cooperatives a year would mean an average person would earn between on average $500,000-$1,000,000 with others earning between $1,000,000 – $3,3072,000.Use of automation to lower working hours and labour and increase productivity and profits alongside a person working for multiple cooperatives at once will increase ones earnings exponentially as one would only have to work one shift a week,month or year at a cooperative.Automation would be voted on and adopted once it is shown to reduce working hours of each employee drastically and increase productivity and by extension profits and thus the wages of everyone meaning it will reduce working hours but increase wages exponentially.Managers and CEOs of businesses,corporations,factories,hospitals would not exist only workers and key members of sectors such as accounting and marketing with for large cooperative multinationals planners or CEOs would be elected to carry out the managing of them.All independent mom and pop retail outlets,restaurants,hotels with only one operating business that is not franchise the profits would not be as high,however the wages of each employee would be higher than any minimum wage but the number of workers would not be as high as well forcing them to work harder,be more competitive and franchise out into more outlets with more successful mom and pop independent businesses with fewer workers will have the workers have higher wages than less successful ones.On average in a true market socialist system the average person would be making at least 5-100 times more money in wages every week,month,year than in a capitalist system with other more poorly paid people getting at least 100-1,000 times more money than they do for doing the same type and same amount of work.What this means is that even the lowest paid people would be paid exponentially more than the normally are with in case of the United States where the minimum age ranges from $5.15-$15.90 in each different state with them currently paid between $10,712 – $3,072 a year would in a socialist system be making $53,560 – $3,307,200 or even $3,070,200 a year without doing any extra work the equivalent of roughly between $25.75 an hour and $1,590 an hour.Those who work in sweatshops for $180-$365 year would be earning between $18,000-  $365,000 a year which is between $8 an hour and $877 an hour.This means that those who in a capitalist system earn barely enough to survive would in a socialist system be either well off enough to survive or would be in fact extremely wealthy despite doing low skill manual labour that in capitalism are looked down on by the rest of society as work that teenagers do for summer jobs while the people who reap the most from their labour in capitalism the multi millionaire and billionaire class by doing nothing are looked up upon by society as hard workers who worked their way to the top proving the American Dream – this is bullshit and Orwellian doublethink.Furthermore the lowest income bracket would be increased significantly and the lowest social class would be earning enough to live a middle class or even affluent lifestyle effectively eliminating poverty forever globally.Most minimum wage workers would be paid and earning at least double of what a $15 an hour minimum wage would get them every year meaning they would be earning between on average the equivalent of $15-$30 an hour for all employees in modestly successful businesses including mom and pop businesses depending on the success of their business without their business going bankrupt and without federal mandates or resorting to automation why because all profits based on its success would be shared equally and wages rising with the success of the business with the more successful the business is the higher the wages are with it rising as much as $96-$100 an hour or more for all employees including low end employees such as cashiers and sweat shop workers for the most successful enterprises and businesses.This proportional rise pay leads to an increase in wages without any federal minimum wage laws and businesses do not have to go bankrupt by increasing wages that interfere with bills and prices as the wages automatically rises in proportion to profits.In socialism thus even those who work blue collar,low skill jobs that don’t need an Honours degree in college or even an highschool education would be working in jobs in a capitalist system that would be considered low skill and bottom of the economic ladder minimum wage jobs be in a socialism be in  well paid jobs with cashiers,janitors,waiters,relay centre workers,sweat shop factory workers for clothing companies,burger flippers in McDonalds and Burger King,Apple,fashion designers,Amazon,WallMart would in socialism would be earning on average six or even seven figure salaries between at least $100,000-$3,307,200 or even $33,072,000 every year on par with who in a capitalism these wages are earned by high skill workers such as lawyers,surgeons,doctors both general physicians and specialists,software developers and most modestly successful mangers and CEOs.These jobs are looked down as summer jobs for teenagers to learn the value of hard work in capitalism and also are used by college students to pay for student debts,loans,accomadation and university fees that are not considered jobs for a living wage and to raise a family on would be in socialism be jobs that would allow one to live a wealthy lifestyle on par with white collar workers and the upper middle class and upper class and raise a family on.It would thus allow cashiers,burger flippers,store greeters etc in McDonald’s,WallMart,Amazon etc be made just as highly regarded socially as surgeons and lawyers and other white collar jobs meaning adults aged 18-65 would under a socialist system would be millionaires thus making them jobs that not only pay a liveable wage without minimum wage laws or hikes but also without raising prices of goods and services and cooperatives going bankrupt.In socialism people would be lining up and forming long queues outside of McDonald’s and Wall Mart stores and Amazon relay centres not to buy anything but to get jobs in them as cashiers,burger flippers,janitors etc because they could easily become multi millionaires working at them for only a few years or even a year  and wouldn’t not have to work that much each year at most as detailed here only one day a year to live a wealthy lifestyle on par with the upper middle class etc..People who work these jobs would be able to support a living wage and would proudly earn the title of “hard working America” that conservatives like to shove down people’s throats when talking about how great capitalism is and those that could be proud of because they would earn large amounts of money for little work and to encourage them to work harder they would begin to work in multiple cooperatives to increase their earning power and it would have renders the need for a €15 feddral minimum wage that would eat into profits.CEOs and managers are not hardworking Americans as they they leach off the hard labour of employees to extract as much of the profits as they can to gain as much profit as they can – this is not hard work this is laziness.Them working for multiple cooperatives during the year would be encouraged due to them earning the combined wages of each one would increase their wages exponentially.Sweatshop workers who make clothing and electronics for big brands such as Nike,Puma,GAP,Ambercombie & Fitch,Apple,Foxconn etc who make currently $180-$365 a year in a capitalist system would be in socialism be making slightly less than American workers in Amazon,WallMart etc roughly $18,000-$1,000,000 but they like American counterparts could work for multiple cooperatives to increase wages exponentially and also since everything is cheaper in third world countries would be able to earn enough to live like the middle class in America and Europe and it would reduce poverty.Considering these are minimum wage jobs these are considered the lowest income so if people that work in McDonalds,Amazon,sweat shops etc are earning between $100,000-$3,307,200 or even $33,072,000 as well as sweat shop workers earning between $18,000-$1,000,000 a year and this is the bottom income bracket with people that are in capitalism currently the  top income brackets lawyers,actors,anaesthesiologist would be earning even more money then it means that poverty would be almost non existent in an socialist system with only a small percentage of the worlds population in poverty roughly 1-5% compared the current 50% in capitalism.Therefore socialism is the only economic system to end world poverty.For those of you in these jobs as permanent employees or as part of working multiple jobs and even just part time workers such as students for these companies it’s likely you are being paid a mere $180-$31,200 a year and you are being screwed over for voting both Trump,Biden etc and not either actual socialists or democrat socialists because in a socialist hellhole you would be multi millionaires living in mansions or at least upper class neighbourhoods and could afford healthcare by earning $100,000-$1,000,000 or more a year.Due to wages being shared amongst all workers and it rising for all workers due to increased profits rather than a flat one it means the wealth of all workers rises proportionally meaning it can be very easy for large groups of people to become very wealthy very quickly rather than a small number of people becoming wealthy and their workers taking longer due to the flat wage system wherein they have to save a set amount and spend the majority on bills of all types.Capitalism can bring people out of poverty the problem is that it takes much longer than socialism as you always have a small number of the population getting wealthy off the backs of others while socialism allows for a large amount of people in each cooperative to become wealthy thus there is a more fairer and more larger  amount of people becoming wealthy wry quickly.Capitalism claims to have brought millions out of poverty over the last century and it may take until the middle or late 21st century to eliminate it forever thus taking at least 200 years.Socialism could have done that in a fraction of the time in only a decade or two had it been adopted at the start of the 20th century by encouraging mergers and ones wages rising exponentionally higher than the cost of bills and having the wealth distribution being less uneven meaning the gap between wealth groups being smaller.Furthermore democratic process would have eliminated corruption,cronyism and over regulation etc that stunts economic development.Considering the lowest income brackets would be $100,000 – $3,307,200 this would ensure enough money to eliminate poverty globally very quickly.How exactly does socialism thus make everyone poorer as spouted by capitalists when everyone is making much more money roughly 5-1,000 times more than in capitalism for doing the same amount of work due to business becoming more successful?The myth that everyone is made equally poor is propaganda spread by lazy fucks in the form of vloggers,CEOs,politicians etc who have the most to lose by doing nothing and being tossed aside and have a kindergarten level understanding of economics.The lower the person makes in capitalism the the more they would make under socialism with the higher a person makes in capitalism the lower the increase under socialism but this smaller increase is still a lot more and significant enough that they wouldn’t have to worry about getting bankrupt and can have a sizeable retirement fund.Thus it would be a true measurement of their labour allowing those who work hard become wealthier and lazy people get poore thus eliminating the issues of the surplus value of ones labour and all other complexity of capitalism.In reality socialism does not actually mean collectivisation through the state or other means where all of society is collectivised as the term collectivisation in socialism can only occur within the confines of each business with it not implying government control of the economy or business or “working together” for the common good with it is in fact much more freer and in fact much more cutthroat than the free market system as all government business regulations are democratically decided by the workforce and it unable to interfere in the economy at all with it only doing so at the behest of referendums and all businesses are able to compete amongst each other by providing better prices,better services and products and so on with them able to compete much better and easier than capitalism to compete with other businesses including larger ones as all regulations are democratically decided and cronyism is almost non existent.Thus business in the form of cooperatives and collectives are still allowed to compete with each other for customers by providing better services,lower prices,better products etc as they are in a free market system with all government regulations being democratically decided upon keeping government interference in the economy and society both extremely limited and democratically decided upon.In fact in a socialist system they are even more encouraged to compete against each other because the proportional rise in wages means cooperatives are forced to provide better services,better products and better customer service and lower prices as the more customers they get the higher the wages is for everyone.The profit motive is still a part of socialism it’s just that it’s shared equally within the confines of each competing businesses as cooperative business are still allowed and in fact more encouraged to compete amongst each other for customers in the same way as in capitalism.Business in the form of cooperatives are thus still allowed to compete against each other for customers just as they would and are in fact more encouraged as gaining customers over another competing cooperative will ensure higher wages for each employee thus causing them to provide better services at better prices etc thus making people work harder than in a capitalist system.Working for the common good occurs only within the confines of each cooperative businesses with each individual cooperative business work and generate profits that are shared equally between all employees and each employees get a right to vote on all issues of the business such as rotas,working conditions and hiring and firing and new ideas for the business rather than just one person in the form of a CEO or manager.Because the profits are shared equally each person must work that little bit extra as if they do profits go up and so does their wages if there is one weak chain then the business loses profits and thus wages go down meaning there will be the danger of going bankrupt.This forces workers to work harder and work together as the more successful a business is and the more profitable the business is and the more profitable it is the higher the wages of everyone in each business gets.Conversely if a business is not profitable then the wages of everyone goes down thus incentivising everyone to work harder and work together again which can only occur within the confines of each individual cooperatives.Equal payment does not infer that everyone everywhere is paid the same for different jobs that is there is no economic system wherein surgeons are paid the same as waiters in a restaurant – this does not exist in communism or socialism it is a myth started by capitalists to denounce the actual true equal sharing of profits of socialism which can only occur within each individual business.No economic system exists that involves all citizens are paid equally.Wages are determined by the success of each individual business.The sharing of wealth distribution etc in true socialism occurs only within the confines of each individual competing business.As stated a person can be paid the same as everyone else in the cooperatives they work in within socialism and that only occurs within the confines of each business and the sharing of profits means wages are higher the the more successful a cooperative and harder everyone works.Therefore it promotes collaboration within businesses and people working harder while it still promotes competition between competing businesses as businesses still have the ability compete with other competitors for market share and customers and in fact its more cutthroat that capitalism as the state interference in the economy is controlled by the workforce limiting regulations with the fact that people’s wages rises with profits means they will compete much harder for customers and thus profits of course through legal means as corruption etc will be punished.By doing this all it forces people to work harder and improves worker satisfaction as by working harder it ensures that everyone’s wages rises the more successful a business is.Equal opportunity arises unlike in capitalism as everyone has an equal chance for getting rich from their own labour with it only equal outcome within each cooperative since everyone in each separate business becoming equally wealthy but that doesn’t mean that all people in all business are paid equal as other different business would be more or less successful that is a surgeon is not paid the same as a janitor,barista etc in other wards it is when people in different business and different occupations such as surgeon,barista,janitor and television presenter would still in socialism be paid different wages but this would be determined by their separate business profits.The term equal opportunity and equal outcome refers only to each individual competing business people who work for different cooperatives would be paid different from each other and their wages would be determined by the success of their business a surgeons wages would be determined by the success of his surgery clinic or the hospitals they work at with baristas,janitors wages determined by the success of each individual cooperatives they work at with those that work at different competing cooperatives earning different wages based on their individual cooperatives success.Janitors in different cooperatives and surgeons in different hospitals are paid different wages based on the success of each different cooperative they work in and not the same as each other.By having all regulations democratically decided upon by the workforce and public it allows for regulations to be almost non existent except of course basic ones such as those with regards to health and safety,worker regulations,anti-discrimination and environmental regulations with them lax but also reasonable and fines etc being decided upon democratically.Fair working and environmental regulations would exist due to each worker voting for them with over regulation especially those that are tyrannical and are meant to stunt economic growth especially for small business being almost non existent due to the fact that again all workers and citizens would vote for them as they would have control over them and the actions of the state.Unfair and tyrannical regulations and taxes can only exist in a capitalist system due to there being almost no democratic control in the workplace and society.Anti-corruption and anti-monopolistic regulations would exist to allow businesses to be cutthroat but still ethical.Constitutions and democratic safeguards exist that prevent tyrannical dictators by acting as a deterrent.All actions of the state whether it is taxes,regulations,bailouts,new laws etc are democratically decided thus eliminating corruption,cronyism,over regulation thus allowing them to be lax but still sensible ie regulations that would exist would only be anti corruption ones,those that protect the safety of workers in the workplace,prevent discrimination against one based on one’s religion,ethnicity,sexuality etc and sensible environmental regulation.Cronyism,bailouts and over regulation would be eliminated because they would be democratically decided upon as the state would need public authorisation.Regulations that stunt the growth of businesses especially new ones are eliminated because all regulations are democratically decided.Workers and the general consumer public would only authorise sensible regulations that protect the rights of workers and the environment meaning over regulation that hampers economic growth would be non existent.Over regulation only occurs in capitalism especially state capitalism because the democratic processes of capitalism are eliminated completely.The workers themselves can come up with and vote into place new laws and business regulations on how business are run both on a federal level and within the confines of each individual cooperatives meaning they can be innovative in new ideas that benefit them.The actions of state are controlled directly by workers and the general populace meaning the state cannot infringe on the rights of the individual or the economic growth of businesses because it can only do so if the population decides it should through democratic processes which would never happen therefore actual true socialism would never involve the state ever infringing o the rights of the individual and economic growth of business.Therefore socialism is therefore much freer than capitalism.The proportional rise in wages system makes socialism more cutthroat than capitalism as each businesses workers wages rises in proportion to profits gained from gaining more customers meaning they will undercut competitors by buying them out,providing lower prices and better services etc shutting them down  just as in capitalism with the incentive to do so more pronounced since all workers and not just the CEO benefits.Since profits are shared equally between all employees there is a greater incentive to be more cutthroat than in capitalism as all employees benefit by having their wages rise by gaining more customers by out competing their competitors and thus profits therefore rather than just the CEO and board of directors benefitting from it all workers benefit thus encouraging them work harder to outcompete their competition.By having wages determined by shared profits it forced all people to work together to compete and push out of business their competitors.Capitalism has only only the CEO benefit as he receives all profits while socialism has all workers benefit by the fact that their wages will rise if they outcompete their competitors and shut them down with if they merge with them then they also benefit as well with even their competitors benifiting.It is therefore a more cutthroat system but it is still an ethical cutthroat system due to worker and environmental as well as anti-corruption regulations constantly present and rather than only a CEO gaining all the fruits of mergers,profits etc all workers in a cooperative get wealthier.Cooperatives can be just as innovative and productive as private enterprises because rather than just one person gaining all of the profits from new innovations and increased productivity all workers benefit thus forcing them to work harder to increase productivity and be more innovative in new ideas etc.Ethics are maintained by all worker,environmental and anti-corruption regulations are kept and maintained by the workers and public keeping them in place by having the public and workers democratically decide all federal regulations while workers of each cooperative are able to to democratically decide all working conditions in each cooperative.Since the workers themselves run each cooperative and control all actions of the government such as regulations,taxes etc through democracy it is in the best interest of each cooperative business through democracy to install ethical and stringent but lax worker and environmental regulations and financial regulations that ensure equality and fair treatment but not going overboard into over regulation that would hamper economic growth since the workers and society themselves are affected by them and thus are able to decide them.Bailouts would have to democratically decided upon with financial regulations present through democracy to prevent the need for them and recent recessions and economic crashes.Therefore in socialism business can become as profitable and wealthy as they want and still allow for fair working conditions and environmental and financial regulations etc and then getting wealthier is a good thing as all workers benefit by getting bigger wages rather than the CEO in a corporation.All workers in competing cooperatives that become unemployed by being shut down by their competitors will have saved enough money to retire after about ten years or can set up a new different business or be hired by other cooperatives who have employees being fired or retiring thus there is very little chance of workers becoming bankrupt etc if they are laid off when there cooperatinve goes bankrupt.Furthermore to increase wages they will likely be working for multiple cooperatives at once meaning even if one cooperative they work for goes bankrupt then they will still have other work and will still have consistent income as a safety net.If posdible they will work for and seek employment with the business that shut them out of carry out a merger where the combined customers are shared and thus they gain more profits and more increases in wages.All workers laid off would have a safety net of being themselves working for multiple cooperatives at once meaning if one cooperative goes bankrupt then they may have at least several others to work for and gain income from.Thus even if a business goes bankrupt workers are still economically secure enough to survive at least several years until they find more work.Automation would be introduced in sweatshop factories and relay stations as well as mining for gold,cobalt,tantalum etc to fully automate them  with those laid off either having saved enough to retire early or would be working for multiple cooperatives with most automation being that that compliments rather than replaces workers that reduces workload by at least 50-90% thus ensuring they are still working less hours and stil earning higher wages by automation increasing productivity with at the same time eliminating the most dangerous aspects of the work.Developing of automation would be more encouraged in socialism.Thus socialism is not only more cutthroat than capitalism it is actually more ethical as bailouts,corruption,inequality,bankruptcy,pollution etc is eliminated.Thus capitalism is the only economic system that ethics are thrown out the window.Socialism is more cutthroat but also at the same time more ethical than capitalism as cooperative are allowed to be as competitive as they want but they still have financial,workers,environmental regulations to prevent them mistreating workers,the environment and being corrupt.This is the exact opposite of what conservatives believe socialism is and what they have brainwashed people into it is.In a capitalist system those who work the hardest gain very little money and ability to climb the social ladder and those who work the least in the form of managers and CEOs earn the most of a businesses profits and wealth – this is the definition of wealth inequality.This in contrast to the flat wage method of payment in capitalism where
