.@JRussellMI which shouldn't be a problem, given that communism =/= Soviet Union =/= Stalinism, but hey, I'm only a russian studies major.

@gcornish1991 is it wrong to call the General Secretary of the Communist Party a Communist?
Tue, Mar 10, 2015 at 5:06 pm
@JRussellMI no! but it would be wrong if he killed someone to say that communism, an econ and social system, murdered that person.

@gcornish1991 Correct me if wrong, but would you argue communism is possible w/o totalitarianism? I would argue the opposite.

@JRussellMI authoritarianism or totalitarianism? Subtle, yet v important diff. Words matter, you as a writer should always keep that in mind

@gcornish1991 I suppose "Comm. requires authoritarianism" is more accurate, but still not worthy of praise. Hence, prom-munism is a bad idea
Tue, Mar 10, 2015 at 5:49 pm
@JRussellMI disagree. Have you read pre-Stalin communist ideas? Stalin really perverted it into how we view communism today.
Tue, Mar 10, 2015 at 5:54 pm
@gcornish1991 Seems then every Communist leader has perverted it. Throughout history it has created too many victims to be worthy of praise.

@JRussellMI (cont) overly generalized, and reductive. You're too smart for that, leave that to the crazies on both sides of the aisle!

.@gcornish1991: re @JRussellMI post about deportations, he isn't credible. It wouldn't cost that much, plus: http://24ahead.com/s/attrition
