Quote of the Day: Not Real Communism


Jordan on the Not Real Communism Fallacy (beginning at 02:40):

“And then when the Marxists say, “well that wasn’t real Marxism,” what it really means, and I’ve thought about this for a long time, it’s the most arrogant possible statement anyone could ever make, it means:

“If I would have been in Stalin’s position I would have ushered in the damn utopia instead of the genocidal massacres, because I understand the doctrine of Marxism and everything about me is good.”

“..Well think again sunshine, you don’t understand it. You don’t understand it, and you’re not that good, and if the power was in your hands, assuming you had the competence, which you don’t, you wouldn’t have done any better, and even if you had there would have been someone else right behind you to shoot you the first time you tried to do anything good.”

It’s your XYZ.
