    A question, are you a communist? A Marxist or what? You seem to have an indepth knowledge of this area. If so I'd be interested in your views of what would make society 'work'.

    I'm a Marxist-Leninist with thoughts that sometimes go along the Maoist (MLM) line. And sometimes they go even as far as Juche (North Korean development of Socialism.) However I'm also influenced with thoughts from Nietzche and Machiavelli as well. But most basically a Marxist-Leninist.

    And I'm afraid your question is too broad, could you rephrase it, or make it more specific?

    Do you believe Lenin's Russia, Mao's China, or Kim Il-Sung's North Korea are ideal countries? If so, I've highly overestimated your intelligence. You obviously care about human rights and equality, so how could you model your views after those of bureaucratic tyrants?

    I generally don't know enough about North Korea to say my opinion on it. I meant purely on a theoretical level.

    As for Lenin's Russia, no it certainly was not an ideal state. However that does not mean that I will negate the accomplishments achieved in his Russia, the same goes for Mao.

    You think that the invention of death camps was an accomplishment? You think the first modern genocide was an accomplishment? What about the starvation and ethnic cleansing of 30 million Chinese.

    Also, if you don't know much about North Korea, talk to a North Korean refugee. WHen you say you agree with Mao'ism, etc, in theory, does that mean you believe in a secret police that hunts down and murders thousands of political dissenters? Do you believe in a small central committee that creates policy and law and gives the people they claim to represent absolutely no say? Do you believe that the state has the right to arbitrarily murder people? Do you not believe in freedom of speech?

    Marxist Leninism is an oxymoron. Lenin's policies, and Mao's proved him to be a vicious bureaucratic tyrant, not a peoples leader.

    Death camps, I would seriously doubt in their existence. In both Russia and China under Lenin and Mao. And from what I've read there was no great purge in China. That I find hard to believe.

    Also, if you don't know much about North Korea, talk to a North Korean refugee.
    I have. I've also talked to many people who live in North Korea. I'm not convinced yet.

    WHen you say you agree with Mao'ism, etc, in theory, does that mean you believe in a secret police that hunts down and murders thousands of political dissenters?
    Hmm that must be a tenet of Maoism that I have yet to read. Which work of his was this in? Can you find it for me at www.marx2mao.com (it doesn't have all of Mao's works, but quite a substantial part of them.)

    Do you believe in a small central committee that creates policy and law and gives the people they claim to represent absolutely no say?
    Actually no, I've never liked the theory of the Vanguard party and would never try and implement it in practice.

    Do you believe that the state has the right to arbitrarily murder people?
    During a revolutionary situation, of course. Afterwards absolutely not.

    Do you not believe in freedom of speech?
    Yes, but for who? to say what? What we have today is the freedom for people to write and print what they want, as long as the publisher and media moguls agree with it. Under a worker's state the reverse would be the situation.

    Marxist Leninism is an oxymoron.
    In what way?

    I'd disagree.

    Why should their lives be? North Korea has been far more isolated from the international community. There was that large famine a few years ago, and then there is also those trade embargos.

    From what I know, (and these are all questionable sources) I think North Koreans are doing fine for what they have.
