    Spots are filling up quickly. Only 13 to go. If you want to get in on this you'd better hightail it on to the General Forum and see my post of the same name there.

    If I join, could I be assured that I wouldn't be placed in charge of some oppressive, unproductive and stagnant communist republic?

    The material preconditions necessary for communism did not exist during the Medieval era. Feudalism led into capitalism, which in turn made communism possible.

    Communist dialectics aside, you can role play your king in any manner you see fit.

    No, it's not spamming. Each thread said something different. Except the one I asked to be deleted.

    Capitalism made communism possible? How is that?

    Capitalism built up the means of production which makes socialism possible. According to the socialist version of history, that is the historic role of capitalism. That is the main reason why the Russian Revolution failed. It was doomed to fail. Capitalism had not been allowed to fulfill its historic role in Russia, which meant Russia was incapable of supporting socialism. The Mensheviks wanted to postpone the revolution. The Bolsheviks were impatient and started the revolution without them.

    The Mensheviks were right.

    The Mensheviks were losers. What are you supposed to do: sit around under a brutal repressive government until it finally reaches sufficient development conditions to rebel? Marxists were and are a bunch of jerks; Bakunin was and still is right.

    my question to you is when will "true" communism come into effect? not the fake russian kind. but the type that comes after the peasants in a capitalist society "rise up" altogether, abolish capitalism, and live together peacefully. when will that happen? 50 years? 100 years? 500??? also, do you honestly believe that if/when this happens, there will be "everlasting peace"? don't you think ambitious people will just look to be in positions of power again?
