CiF of the Day

Quite wondrous:

It was not the dictatorships of the former Soviet Union and her allies which bothered the West, but the lack of market\’s for the West\’s corporations.

Democracy means power of ordinary people. And capitalists are not ordinary people, they are ordinary parasites. So the USSR and the Eastern Block states were the most democratic when they weren\’t ruled by parasitic elites sponsored by parasitic capitalists.

The Soviet government\’s administrative policies were efficient and accurately reflected the ethnic make-up of regions.

There was virtually no emigration during the Soviet Union, as the vast majority of people were satisfied with their lives in their native country.

Each para is a snippet from a different comment by a different person.

Quite which planet they\’ve been observing over the last few decades I\’m not sure but it doesn\’t appear to be this one.

  1. There was virtually no emigration during the Soviet Union, as the vast majority of people were satisfied with their lives in their native country.

    Oddly, there’s surprisingly little emigration from Her Majesty’s Prisons too.

  2. Indeed, and post May 1940 there was precious little emigration from the Third Reich and its subject states.

  3. ….The Soviet government’s administrative policies were efficient and accurately reflected the ethnic make-up of regions…….

    That would the the ethnic make up before or after Stalins mass deportations?

  4. Marvelous! The people you quoted wish to live under a brutal, totalitarian dictatorship because they believe they will be free; I wish the people you quoted could live under a brutal, totalitarian dictatorship so they will be taught a lesson.

    It’s win-win!

  5. The Pedant-General

    tehag,

    it’s win-win-win: all of the rest of us get to be rid of the morons.

    AND!!!!!

    Their new “free” life won’t allow them any contact with us at all so their ludicrous bleatings won’t clutter up the intertubes either.

    What’s not to like?

  6. ” The people you quoted wish to live under a brutal, totalitarian dictatorship because they believe they will be free..”
    No, they wish to live under a brutal, totalitarian dictatorship because they believe they’ll be in charge.

  7. It is not a new phenomena, and not confined to a bunch of half-wits. In fact Sidney & Beatrice Webb managed to tour the Soviet Union in the 1930s during a famine in which millions of people died. They were only shown the showcase bits though, and chose not to analyse very deeply.
