Here’s the thing with the “It wasn’t real Communism” claim…
If you engineer a car, and every single attempt to manufacture that car becomes a flaming wreck shortly after it is built…. In spite of how much effort, planning or how carefully manufactured that car was….. It is not due to faulty manufacturing that the car goes up in flames: it’s due to inherent flaws in the design itself.
Communism…. is a Pontiac Fiero. It does not matter how many times you attempt to manufacture it, or how well it’s manufactured: it is a flawed design. It was engineered poorly with severe inherent flaws in the design.
Einstein’s definition of insanity was “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
it’s a simple concept right?
If I have a mathematical equation where by I calculate that X will occur in Y event under Z conditions.
If X does not occur: it is not reality which is wrong – it is my mathematical equation which fails to accurately predict reality, therefore; my equation is wrong.
If I attempt to institute this equation a multitude of times: and X absolutely never occurs in Y event under Z conditions. I have thus ruled out the possibility of a statistical anomaly.
If your ideology predicts X and reality absolutely always produces Q instead: it is not reality which is wrong.
In any conflict between ideology and reality: reality wins.
