In order to work properly, socialism and communism needs to be unrealistically specific. Yet, every form of capitalism works just fine because it accounts for human behavior.

Communism has to specifically be in your imagination and not implemented anywhere to be successful.

For the vast majority of human history, communism-like society has worked pretty well. It's only in the last several millenia where it started to fail.

Using violence to reach your ends never works how one intended.

my family fled the communist revolutions... it wasn't a pretty picture. I pity the naive left-wingers that think it can work, if they were in charge

Communism is like the hypothetical apocalyptic end state of capitalism, where the 1% has become the ruling 0.000000000001% and all other classes are collapsed into the 99.99999999999% of plebs.

It starts out with a nice environment produced by capitalism. Some people live in households that are a mess, though, because they are slobs (not pictured here). Instead of attributing this to the slobs being slobs, it's attributed to other people. In order to fix the inequality that's based on outside perception and not personality traits, we need to destroy the neat houses of neat and orderly people.

Old joke making fun of USSR:

A Texan, a Frenchman and a Russian wound up on a desert isle. They found an old lamp and rubbed it and a genie came out. "I will grant each of you one wish."
The Texan wished he was home with 50 new oil wells on the back 40 making him rich, and poof he was gone.
The Frenchman wished he was on a cruise boat on the Riviera filled with beautiful women and he was gone.
The Russian told the genie "My neighbor back home has a goat and I do not. I want you to kill my neighbors goat."

Example of poor logic and simple-minded ideology - comparing apples to oranges. Making bread requires a few ingredients, an oven and a baker. Systemic poverty in Detroit is a complex mixture of economics, demographics, globalism and politics. If communism can't provide adequate supplies of bread, it fails. If one rust-belt city dependent on a single industry declines (while other cities thrive), it says that capitalism has shifted it's focus from cars to other industries. Freddie is a dunce.

Commie unions drove the jobs out of Detroit. That's where the poverty came from.

I rather pay 1 person more money to do a really good job than 3 morons to do a shit job. I see this in the tech industry all the time. Sure, you can brute force with 50 Indians who have the vague knowledge of the project and will work for dirt cheap, but if you just hired 5 good programmers or engineers you would get the project done, correctly, and on time.

People like unions because there is a vetting system and additionally, if you are shit at your job, you won't be getting any gigs. I would 100% choose a trained, credentialed Otis technician to repair my elevator, than Ivan the guy who fixes things and lives in the basement.

So you're saying it's because it wasn't real capitalism? How ironic. https://i.imgtc.com/DCW0oux.jpg

If you really think that living conditions and poverty in the US and Cuba are roughly on the same level, I have a bridge to sell for you!
