Just because capitalism is greedy.
No, seriously, I know about wars for territory, ideology, or influence spheres. But if they at least have a point, capitalist wars are running just for profit. This is only one thing of many that makes capitalism so disguisting.
But, let's be serious there - the only communism that we can build today is a bloody socialism. Because a) we need to overthrow the capitalists from the influence spheres, and that automatically means Civil War, like in Russia in 1917 b) communism means that we won't need money, which is nearly impossible today because of the stereotypes in most of human minds, so we can only make socialism. But still, when we'll build socialism, our children will continue our legacy to build the real communism.

Socialism & Communism are the true democracies a perfect example of that would be the Commune De Paris in 1871

Like the picture. Looks like its saying that we must break free of the capitalist Matrix.
Freedom under capitalism is only half the story. We have the right to enter politics, freedom of assembly, speech etc. Communism is the first ideology to show that economic freedom (such as food, shelter, job, health care) is more important. I hope we find a political system that would respect both as two sides to the same coin of freedom. Then we would be set.
Anyways nice work Comrade.

And what does socialism/communism advocate?

The enslavement of the individual to a nameless, faceless, undefinable collective that conveniently includes everyone but himself.

Mainly, Lenin believe the people needed a strong leader who could make decisions for them, but with fair and equal rights for the people. Capitalists o not care much for fair and equal rights, because mainly they focus on how much money they can get, whether it includes the harm and deaths of others, or suffering and poverty of citizens.

Socialism is mainly focused on the safety, fairness, and equality of citizen rights.

Communism focuses on the guidance and leadership of citizens.

The only way the Unite States is a free nation is because it only gives the freedom of speech to citizens. But look what they do to people for using action instead of words,many people are in prison for it.

The Soviet Union limited some rights, but the people were proud an happy. The country mainly focused on Patriotism and equality. Besides, who's really gonna take away the freedom away from the people of a nation?

The People are free no matter what you think!

Frankly, that is a wrong-minded view towards Socialism/Communism.

Individuals are free to do as they will as long as they are not detrimental to the collective. Yes, there would be some limitations on what a person can do. Yes, it will be in the interest of the Common Good. Will everybody like it? No.

Frankly, I admire your notions of "independence" and "individuality", but you must realize you are a tool to the Capitalists. A commodity to be exploited and used up...

"Individuals are free to do as they will as long as they are not detrimental to the collective."

Who and by what right gets to decide what is detrimental to the collective? Why isn't the individual in question part of the collective?

Right now, there are people who claim that homosexual marriage is detrimental to society, yet if you really think about it, two men or women getting married really doesn't break anyone's leg or pick their pocket, does it?

"Yes, it will be in the interest of the Common Good."

Who and by what right gets to decide "the common good"? Also, there are millions of people in America alone; what do you think the odds are of a majority of them feeling the same way on the same subject?

"but you must realize you are a tool to the Capitalists. A commodity to be exploited and used up..."

I AM a capitalist. And unlike socialism/communism, which says my sole existance is to serve "the collective" (which conventiently includes everyone but me), capitalism says I have the right to exist for my own sake. And while I have been exploited in some of my jobs, in each case, I had the right to leave and find a different job, which I did. Socialism/communism doesn't give me that choice, as the concern is for "society's" benefit, not mine.

The answer to your first two questions (which are basically the same question): The collective whole does include the individual in question. The individual gets to voice their concern or opinion. The example of gay marriage would be null and void, as Communists believe in social and civil equalities to all. This would give homosexuals their rights.

Yes, yes you are a Capitalist. Your arguments and rhetoric are much like every other Capitalist I've spoken with. The same excuses and rationale to defend your decadent and decaying system...

That would be funny if it wasn't for the fact I likely know what your speaking of. Oddly enough, an elderly Macedonian gent I know was talking to me about how America today is worse than Communism. Back in the 1970s, he told me, it was a wonderful country. That life was very good. But since the 1980s, it has gone downhill.

He came here to escape Yugoslav Communism.

What does he define as good?

And he's more than free to go back to it.

When rent and business costs weren't as high, when one could feed a family on one paycheck. That is what he calls good.

He was referring to America being better in the 70s, not Yugoslavia. And no, he couldn't go back there, because Yugoslavia is no more. As for Macedonia, which is where there was now, he doesn't want to go back. Things are "very bad man", according to him.

Socialism advocate no such thing. Humans have natural need to make groups, to interact. Loners are an exception here. Ofcourse, you may try to force your believes into a group, but ,from definition, you are outnumbered and outguned. Looking on your blog entry I think that you can't see "the big picture", there is only you and nothing else matters.

Actually, I just refuse to surrender my unique individuality and become a means to someone else's end. And, on the contrary, I respect the rights of others, just as I expect them to respect mine; that is the only obligation I have to my fellow man.

"I respect the rights of others, just as I expect them to respect mine"

Yeaa, if you did, there wouldn't be this conversation. Our civilization is based on unificated law, because it is neccessery to limit some of "unique individualities", I think, you get the idea why.

Says who? Who and by what right gets to decide, outside of those who initiate force against others, which "unique individualities" are to be limited?

The "group, society, majority and democracy" are nothing more than individuals, just like me. Why do they get to decide for me, but I can't decide for myself?

As for the "right to rule", there can be no such right:

Individual rights

Noooo... "group, society, majority and democracy" are more than just individuals. They are group of individuals thinkig simillar, but not the same, and willing to do some sacrifices (sacrifice - good word to remember) some of their rights for the sake of social sanity. They together make rules, laws to follow by fellow people. The may decide to ban guns for example, because they think that would make world a litlle safer place. There are some basic human rights (f.e. right to live)that can't be violated by Law, but this is it! They don't mention right to hunt or something like that. Why do you even came up with the idea that "group, society, majority and democracy are nothing more than individuals"? Have you lost a contact with civilization, with knowledge how modern countries work?

There could be some work done with Lenin , as it seams that you have stylised him by putting a filter on , I would suggest doing it by hand . I am sure that you would find the results more than satisfactory .
The workers swinging the hammers are brilliant ! Did you draw them , and also the composition is very good to boot ! :D

Long live the hero of the workers ! Long live Lenin !

Heh, I am rather bad with hand-drawings. Workers were made in a vector-graphic program, and they are based on some old socialist postcard. Thank you for all kind words! :D
