…if your determining factors don’t include cannibalism.
Here is an excerpt:
About a group of women who sought to protect children from cannibals by gathering them in an “orphanage” in the Kharkov region:
“One day the children suddenly fell silent, we turned around to see what was happening, and they were eating the smallest child, little Petrus. They were tearing strips from him and eating them. And Petrus was doing the same, he was tearing strips from himself and eating them, he ate as much as he could. The other children put their lips to his wounds and drank his blood. We took the child away from their hungry mouths and we cried.” [/quote][/quote]
Are we talking about the starvation in the 1920`s?
Its well knowned that cannibalism occured in Russia during the starvation.
but then again, similar horrible acts happened in irland during the famine in the late 1840`s
In a capitalist context, does this mean that fascism beets capitalism?? ( retorical question, no need to answer ).[/quote]
I don’t remember anyone starving someone over capitalism or putting them in gas chambers or doing experiments on them for the sake of capitalism. And, this isn’t about Capitalism this is about America’s fascination with Communism and hatred of Fascism although they had similar (or Communism had worse) effects on their people, should read the article instead of trying to attack capitalism, even though I’m not defending capitalism here. I am talking about communism and fascism here, stay on topic and maybe read the article. [/quote]
The irish famin happend in a capitalist context and the markedliberalist policys made it even more severe, How is this not on topic, arent we talking about famins here? How come a famin in a socialist context is the fault of the said ideology, but when it happens in a capitalist context it doesnt. fucked up logic or is it me. And people have actually been killed in the name of capitalism, ever heard of pinochet? So this is most definitly relevant to the topic. Actually in this scenario, economic fascism( mixed economy ) wins, The where no famin in nazi germany or fascist italy and the economic model in northern europa from the post war era are also been famin free and that model have many similaritys with the economic part of the fascist ideology. But the fascist ideology are more inhuman than socialism and liberalism( economic ) combined, because it worship warfare, racism, national sjovenism, anti-feminism and they have no respect for neither democracy or humanrights. Liberalism/capitalism and socialism are both ideologys that in theory wants a more humanist, democratic and liberal society. Thats why the ideas of socialism and communism are generally more liked than fascism, but I dont think you find many that looks at stalin or hes reign of terror in a positiv light, maybe a nut here or there.
