I just wanted to share that. Einstein liked communism but wasn’t a supporter of a violent revolution.


Of course Stephen would support anything fully automated, have you seen the guy?


Not recently tbh


He died


Id make the point that just because someone is insanely great at math, doesn’t mean they are good at predicting the behaviors and effects on productivity, etc. that socialism (or any other economic system) would have.

Side note: the official name for Naziism has “socialist” in the title: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_Party

Please dont downvote the crap out of me.

Educate yourself before you try to own the commies. I’ve read your comments. You have no idea about anything related to socialism or capitalism.

This is tiring. You’re not the first person who thinks they got it all figured out and the godless commies are just stupid and don’t know what they’re doing. We have 200 years of theory (and counting) behind us. What authoritative books have you read that informed your views on capitalism? Jordan Peterson? The guy who was absolutely obliterated by Slavoj Zizek out of all people, when he clearly showed he had not read a single page of the manifesto? Lmao.

You are right though that “just because” Einstein was great at math, it didn’t make him a great socialist. He was after all not a proponent of violent revolution, and that was a shortcoming of his, though probably informed about his work on the atom bomb.

US Democratic party has democracy in its name.

Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
