Ever realize the amount of shit we have to do to dismantle the class system and capitalism? I know many people love revolution rather than reform, including myself, but where would that leave us?
Is Chinese equipment enough to support a broad leftist coalition against fascism? Let's say that, against all odds, you win the initial war against the current government, THEN you win again during the power struggle that follows the revolt. Congrats, now we get our communist nation. What would you do next?
China would support your country financially and you'd be in their sphere, of course… but many others would embargo you and sanction you for being an illegitimate state created by bloodshed, would they not?
I mean… why would the remaining neoliberal countries even consider your existence, let alone trade with you?
Even after winning against the government and the help they receive from their allies, and even after taking power from the other leftists, we'd still have to redo everything in society.
All brands and businesses would have to be dealt with and we'd have to streamline everything and create hundreds of government departments, and that's not even including organizing production and laws/law enforcement.
Where do we even fucking begin? Would you even recover from war? Even at that, many communists and leftists would disagree and the current government may be very unstable. At least fascists can agree in their hatred for ____ but I feel like leftists are so fractured into factions and are unwilling to team up even with the left-leaning liberals even if it means destroying capitalism and fascism. I can't help but to feel that the vast majority of people would not like to live under communism and would rather be dead (speaking as a burger).
Leave your thoughts. Be realistic. This is in relation to the international constitution thread, similar realistic concerns rather than just fantasizing that we shoot a bunch of people, burn some cops, and poof magic communism yay. I wanna hear what you want to do, and what you would do.
