Well you idolize Castro and Mao and Lenin, so I'm not sure how consistent you're being.

You do know that those countries are State Capitalism and not socialist, correct?

I know they're not true socialism but they're definitely NOT state capitalism, especially given state capitalism is a bit of an oxymoron.

I presented you with a page loaded with information on State Capital, and you provide me with a Youtube link from an unreliable source and a dictionary definition of capitalism.

You have greatly achieve the fallacy of "Protecting the thesis"

I never said state capitalism wasn't an existing term. I've heard it be used several times before. I'm saying that it's an oxymoron because it means something that completely contradicts what capitalism is, and anyone who knows what capitalism is knows that.

And unreliable source? Please. The guy is a Harvard professor on economics.

The very definition of capitalism has nothing to do with the state, and I sent that to you to prove that state capitalism is an oxymoron. Now let me ask you this. How in the hell is Cuba and China state capitalist?

Because of dictatorship rule of resources. True Communism requires democratic elections and democratic ideals. This is in the introduction of the Communist Manifesto, if you have read it. In Soviet Russia and Cuba, you still had privately owned companies; en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoyan

The heads of these companies were basically people who reported to the government, thus creating a State Capital system. Nowhere in the equation does the worker vote on business decisions nor elect the party.

Have I proved my point?
