Vladimir Putin confessed yesterday at a conference of the All-Russia People's Front (a political movement Putin started in 2011) that he is personally very fond of the ideas found in communism and socialism.
According to Putin, the Code of the Builder of Communism (a set of 12 codified moral rules in the USSR guiding every Communist Party member and Communist youth member) “strongly resembles the Bible.” “This is not a joke; it was actually an excerpt from the Bible,” Putin explained.
The president also noted that communism and socialism, as they were practically implemented in the Soviet Union, were far from what socialist-utopians proposed.
“The practical implementation of these ideals in [the USSR] had little in common with what the utopian socialists Saint-Simon or Owen spoke about. This country had little resemblance to their Sun City,” Putin said, referring to the utopian work by the Italian Dominican philosopher Tommaso Campanella, published in 1602.
Putin also said he never threw out or burned his Soviet Communist Party membership card.
This was not the first time Putin compared the Code of the Builder of Communism to the Bible. In 2013, he called the code “a pathetic copy from the Bible,” saying Soviet communism observed quasi-religious values.
On January 21, Vladimir Putin blamed Vladimir Lenin for the collapse of the Soviet Union. “There were a lot of ideas like autonomation and so on. They put an atomic bomb under the building we call Russia and then it blew up. We didn't need any world revolution,” Putin said at a meeting of the Presidential Council for Science and Education.
>a guy who lived in the upper crust of the communist system and was indoctrinated to hate filthy capitalist pigdogs as a child still has these feelings today
I thought this was /news/ not /obv/
What has capitalism done for the world?
I am an American, i cherish the land im from and the people that live here. But the harsh truth is capitalism has done nothing but give people that are only worried about themselves the means to freely rule a country. We live in a dictatorship already.
except that isn't an actual thing or term that anyone but mouthbreathers on youtube comments and right wing sound chambers who actually couldn't define marxism identifies as existing
third reich apologists and other neo nazi filth like you are the dogshit garbage of intellectualism

Not that anon but that was just shameful.
As a social demo, go learn the idea of "cultural marxism" before resorting to ad hominem.
communism is an economic theory not a political system, and does have a set governing/ruling structure strongly connotated with its name, except in shitholes like the US
words that better describe what you're inferring would be like
>despotism (or specifically an autocracy or more likely an oligarchy)
But cultural marxism is just a rightwing made-up concept that doesn't have anything to do with marxist theory.
Marxism is a method of analysis. It is an actual thing that is studied and discussed in universities. "Cultural marxism" is nothing.
The dismantling of the USSR was a blessing. I think Putin would agree that the world is better now that Russia is in the periphery. It's not right to begrudge his public diary entered.
Gollum's quest was born of his desire to hide from shame rather than realize ambitions. This proto-hobbit was only trying to cope.
Putin's domestic political olive leaf to Communists shouldn't be interpreted as an intention to abandon his budget cuts. All he wants to do is deleverage his hyper-inflated popular fascist regard.
Communism does the same thing and eliminates the possibility of creating something more for yourself. He govt controls all resources and production, using it to its advantage. And the motivation for innovation nearly entirely ceases.
A big part of the russian population (especially those who are not winners of the new russia) are still sentimental about the soviet union the nineties made alot of people forget the bad things of those times. Putin knows this.
