    Here’s a platform to dump on authoritarian world leaders of past and present, whether far-right or far-left. Authoritarianism sucks no matter who’s the ruler.

    EDIT: I had this idea so as not to clog the ****posting thread. I still find it appalling that people would want to emulate and even live in Cuba’s authoritarian regime.

    Sure authoritarian leaders are bad in the real world, but you know who really sucks is @Lord Vivec and his tyranny over in the **** posting thread. That's right I said it.

    I agree 100 percent with you @Darth Weavile


    Trump is a horrible president and has displayed a lot of authoritarian-right tendencies.


    However, I would not trade him or most American presidents for Stalin or Mao, to name a few examples.
    I understand why equality is important, but I honestly feel like communism takes it too far. At least it has in nearly all historical examples. Yes, fascism is evil and so is racism.
    No form of oppression is okay. You can create equality without removing rights such as free speech and ability to purchase/earn income without being slaughtered like in past dictatorships.


    Sorry that wasn’t as articulate as I’d like

    I too am a libertarian communist. I'm glad there's a thread for people like me!

    About Cuba,
    my family lived under Castro’s regime until emigrating.

    And yes, I will concede that American police behavior towards certain minorities is not that far away from the way Castro’s government dealt with people, but that does not make it better.

    Wasn't the cute animals incident based off the onion or something?

    Was that the same one as Why did that Japanese man eat a white girl? or were they just tonally similar?

    Oh, yes, the Find-A-Grave thing. I remember that now.

    That is an all-time great thread. I regret that I missed all that when it was actually happened.

    Great thread. Every single American president should have met their end before a firing squad for war crimes. Fully agreed.

    Agreed. We should all vote for the least authoritarian third party instead of Trump or Biden.
