You are an internationalist fool, Rothschilds Capitalists backed Communism and overthrew the heroic Tsar Nicolas the 2nd and the brave patriot Mummer Ghaddafi.

Workers and soldiers will join the system to replace an egalitarian and libertarian, but ordered: Communism

They stand with what is right, not with people.

So it is morally right and just to stand with the exploitative oppressors and not with the common man?
Lol, please tell me you are just joking.

Morality is objective and independent of the people. Your "exploitative oppressors" and "the common man" are subjective terms, ergo it is open to debate whether they would be right or wrong in serving one or the other.

I think whenever 1% of the population that does almost nothing owns nearly half the wealth, there is definitely exploitation and oppression taking place.

Wealth is created nonstop and can never be fully owned by any one part of the population. And even those who own part of it benefit even the likes of you with their ownership. Don't make a fool of yourself by saying you haven't benefited from the likes of Sam Walton, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and all those like them.

Also, I don't recognize your right to define productive activity in the economy. I highly doubt you have even half a grasp of what goes on outside your narrow view of the world.

Wealth is not created nonstop, it is lost, found, used, and often times wasted. Steve Jobs is no more a pioneer than Ayn Rand, unless of course you like her as well, regardless, had the United States had a different business model they would have made the same advancements. Or others would have. The Soviets reaching the stars shows that technological advancement does not stagnate regardless of the economic model, progress always finds a way.

There is a very good reason people freak out when the value of the dollar goes down and that's because suddenly everyone is a little let wealthy, you ignoramus.

"The Soviets reaching the stars shows that technological advancement does not stagnate regardless of the economic model, progress always finds a way."

True, but the US was able to do it and feed her own people at the same time. And space exploration was but one part of the Soviet Union's economy, hardly a representation of the Soviet economy as a whole. Compare the standard of living of an ordinary citizen of the Soviet Union to an ordinary citizen of the US (or compare East Germany to West Germany).

And progress may always find a way, but it finds a way faster and better under a system of freedom than it does under a system of controls (North Korea and South Korea are one of the best examples of this fact).

Other country comparation: Angola vs Norway. Both with aprox same oil production. One country distributes profite more or less equally = Solidarity. In the other country... well you tell me! -they do it in that "free" way - yeah? In wich country do you wish to take that cleaning job at the oil factory?

well, i'm glad we have something that hints at the idea we might not all be brainwashed jackbooted thugs, although alot of my comrades in arms might fit that stereotype unfortunately. Honestly, in my position i find it interesting to be a Communist in the military, it can also be quite frustrating, for those of you who don't serve, there's kind of a class system all itself, at least in the US military. Lower-Enlisteds such as myself (E1-E3, Maybe some E-4's) are the majority, do the lions share of the work, are always put in the most dangerous positions, and usually get no gratitude for the work they do. Non-Commissioned Officers and Staff Non-Commissioned Officers (E4's to E-9) are a different story, especially on the lower end, they tend to be quite brainwashed and blindly follow orders, especially those that are old and don't apply to a modern military. and at the end of the day, they're only concerned about their career and not their fellow soldiers/sailors/marines/airmen. Officers and Warrant Officers are a whole 'nother breed, it's hard to really classify them, but i will say there's the good and the bad. overall, i don't think any service member with a brain wouldn't sympathize with workers and citizens being oppressed and robbed, when in an average day you watch those in charge of you receive all the credit and do none of the work.

This is all really exacerbated when you're at war as well, it's hard to be led into combat by leaders who would throw you under the bus because they are either scared/incompetent/ or just plain don't care whether you live or die. in summation, i'll say one thing, that the people are not alone, and plenty of my comrades in similar rank share a sentiment of anger against those who oppress the hard-working people that make our society run.

Yes soldiers, who do you stand with: A big guy with a cigar, or the Village People?

Quite a good poster, especially since everyone I know who is or has been in our military has a strong dislike of politicians and the upper class.

They say they fight for the people. And then they are ordered to shoot them. Aint that how it usually are if we look at history?

A soldier's honour is a tricky concept. But I believe most soldiers would, or should, stand with the people of any given country.
