My theory is that if we splice some of the industrial/socio-economic parts of communism, add in Socialism, add in some Left wing democracy and finally, some Humanitarian principles, I think we'd get the best system so far.
That being said, I still must state my admiration for Marx and his writings and I feel he had some really good ideas, yet I fear us westerners aren't taking his teachings on board due to the bad pr Communism has over here from the Cold War. That being said, I'm Irish, meaning I'm basically neutral in this whole thing.
Plus, your nationality doesn't determine world views.
Putin is a European puppet who is bent on destroying the Eurasian region. Everything he says and does is treason. The only man in a high governmental position who is working in Russia's best interests in Medvedev. All that Putin does is try to show off how cool and hip he is, and meanwhile he sabotages everyone and everything.
It isn't new, look what happened to Sandino or Chico Mendes as soon as they challenged the status quo one ended up being machine gunned to death by the local National Guard on his way home, they stole his watch and buried him under an airplane landing strip while Chico ended up in a shallow grave, and Rosa Luxembourg ended up in a canal.
Your poster reminds me of one I saw dating from the 20's printed in the German Jugendstil magazine, it shows the landscape littered with dead communists, socialists etc. and in the middle a Frei korps officer stands with the caption translates as - "Cheers Noske(famous Frei Korps officer) the dangerous proletariat has been safely disarmed". p.s is it true they're pulling down Lenin statues in Ukraine again!
Russians could offer to Ukrainians nothing but chains and money to the Yanukovich with guarantees that he will be able to rob his own people under Russia's blessing.
I'm not saying the protest nor all the protesters were nazi supporters, I just am afraid for my friends there.
If you don't mind me asking, what do you think will happen?
On a different note, I love your gallery my friend ^^
Much obliged for the watch mate, but I must warn you that I am a republican nationalist, not a socialist or communist.
I assure you my friend ideals mean nothing to me. You are a great artist and a very intelligent man. But as a heads up, a good number of my uploads are communist or Soviet related.
By the way, I love your uniform ^^
Also the picture is of members of the Svoboda party a far right fascist group you can see the flags.
If pictures are worth a thounad words you must be Svoboda.
For example, I supported Al-Assad in Syria, and not the FSA.
Because Islamic fundamentalism in a government is just about the worst thing that can be done to an Arab nation (believe me, I'm Arab myself). Yes, he has his faults, but I'd rather support him and wait for a real people's rising rather than a US-backed terrorist force to further destabilize the Middle East.
The situation in Ukraine however is very different. The half close to Russia wants to stick to Russia, while the half closer to mainland Europe wants to join the EU. To be honest, I don't like either Russia or the EU. Both are Imperialist powers, but Russia is "the shinier out of the two turds", so-to-speak. If Ukraine sticks with Russia, they will heavily benefit from the Customs Union, but if they join the EU, they'll be raped of their resources, exploited for cheap labour and doomed to horrible unemployment and poverty for many years to come. Basically, the same occurred in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Romania and Greece; look how well they turned out.
I'm am confused as to what you mean by "as long as it's on their terms" though, so I'll refrain from commenting on that.
