    Not really. It implies that people conflate the two being knowingly intellectually dishonest.

      Well, there are like a million options beside capitalism so if it references Stalin I’m assuming it’s implying the alternative is the weird authoritarian ideology Stalin made that tankies want.

      Another interpretation I can think of would be socialism but Stalin isn’t linked with socialism much here in eastern europe. Could be this works better in the US since they have some weirdness with conflating Stalin, communism, authoritarianism and socialism but I don’t have those cultural impacts so I don’t get it.

      Best memes are the ones that require an explanation.

        To the American right wing, all of the positions to the left of Trump are basically communism. There’s not much distinction there.

        That’s the position the comic is satirizing.
