Sisera: So what does that mean then? You believe rich people are inherently oppressors who don’t deserve rights but then White men are okay?
I dunno. There are some North Koreans worth up to $100,000. The party doesn’t seem to care much. There are many rich Chavistas and the Ortegas have plenty of money. There are some Cubans who are living quite well now – marble counter-tops and floors, etc. The state doesn’t care.
I suppose a good CP would just argue that moneyed people can be kept around as long as they support the party and the basic socialist nature of the system. Progressive rich people are not unknown. The father of the famous terrorist Carlos was a life member of the Venezuelan Communist Party and a millionaire.
Do the Chinese Communists (Chicoms) believe that the rich are inherently oppressive? I doubt it as the party is full of millionaires. There is even a billionaire in the party now pushing the rightwing politics of all billionaires everywhere. I think they ought to throw him out of the party.
Mao said reactionary and capitalist elements would be springing up in the party all the time, and you to wage more or less constant cultural revolution to keep the rightwingers from taking over the party. That’s one of the pillars of Maoism that distinguishes it from other Marxisms.
Then Deng came along, aaand…
Mao was right.

Better that than allowing Conquest’s second law of politics take effect.
Look, I am going to have to ban you. You’re a conservative anti-Communist quoting Robert Conquest. Nope, nope, nope. Not acceptable. This is a socialist site and we are Lefties here. We don’t allow conservatives to voice their opinions here. We simply don’t allow that.
I am so sorry my friend, but I think another website would be a better fit for you.
You do you geezer
Ok Ching Chong I am going have to ban your chopstick ass.
Back to Chinatown coolie or I give you a death by a thousand cuts!
Lmao you triggered like a lil bitch
Your rickshaw is pointing that way, Chinaman. Out of town and off the site. Go back to your opium den or wherever you crawled out of.
HAVE A NICE DAY!
what the fuck, rob why so racist, you cracker. Geez talk to him nicely and stop acting like a bitch, man. You are showing that socialist and communist are racist, dang man, chill
That’s classic Robert banning style. He’s not racist, he’ll do it to any group. I’m actually pro-Asian and like hapas but one of the meanest racial things I’ve posted was to an Asian. Robert’s extremely pro-Asian. Putting out a few yellow fires doesn’t change that fact.
