He definitely isn’t a an economic or political genius, but I do think he might be smarter than he seems(not in a good way) as he knew how to manipulate people to get where we his, and he is charismatic from the point of view of his followers, which make up a disturbing amount of the population. All in all he fits most of those things in my opinion. Of course I’m not actually saying he’s the Antichrist just saying that if he were anyone from the Bible he would be them

There’s a large number of evangelical far-right who do genuinely think he was sent by god, and a subset of them who think he’s the second coming. if he’s anything from the Bible it would be the antichrist

While the far-right do tend to be trash, those, who are on the right, seem to be far more intelligent. The left are blind, they tend to outright lie, they have many double standards and at times they seem downright mentally ill.
The left feel that anything and everything are acceptable, unless it isn't inline with their ideas, even going so far as mush turn on one another.
The left are like hippies, free love, legalized drugs, no boundaries no borders, just anything goes.
They claim to be open-minded but outright refuse to listen to differing points of views.
The left seems to want to get rid of all we have and replace it with nonsense that they just make up.
Some of our human beliefs, tendencies, traditions and ideas have served us well since prehistoric times and now some people want to just throw all that out the window and replace it with backward and nonsensical ideas which at many times aren't even popular let alone wanted or accepted with the majority.

Well, that's how the left seems to appear to me, at least.

@Twiface
This artist seems to be left leaning, so misunderstand certain concepts shouldn't be a big surprise.

I understand we all will never actually agree with one another. We're all human beings and it really isn't in our overall nature to get along all that well, after all.

Yeah, they keep writing articles about him EVERY SINGLE DAY like he's their god or something. Surely their "intelligence" could be put to better use?

The left, the ones who aren’t too far down the line anyway, do tend to be more intelligent by nature, but then again it’s not much of a contest when a majority of one side worships a racist Oompa Loompa

The message of the original unponified meme is that memes created by left wingers are often long-winded moralistic lectures on how you should think or behave, while right wing memes tend to be blunt, straightforward, edgy, and provocative.

However, the artist who ponified it has misinterpreted it to mean that to mean that the left is more intelligent because they write long essays with academic sources while the right only uses insults because they don't have any good arguments.
Background Pony #0678
So? The one on the left is more concerned about being the star on center stage and taking selfies and hoping no one notices that they're hiding a great deal of information behind a smiling face? In the end it's all about they themselves?

While the one on the right is clear and to the point? Sure, they want other to know who they are and what they represent, but the message is more important than the one spreading it. Admittedly the message can be at time stated in a rather crude manner and the speaker a bit unkempt.

Conclusion:
Lefty: TL;DR
Righty: Oh, uh, okay…

To each, his/her own.
Background Pony #AB26
Ah, yes. The subtle nuance of, "everyone who isn't in favor of open borders socialism is literal Nazi."

So, you're saying one actually tries to discuss things, while the other can only muster cheap jokes that age about as well as milk?

Yeah, that seems about right.

Simple things can be more nuanced and thought provoking than verbose word vomit. Artists should know that better than anyone. Does this picture suck because it lacks a background or shading? Memes are jokes, not lectures.

"Dispute resolution organizations" or something like that

If there was no truth in it whatsoever, then why would it be funny?

Revolutionary Catalonia
Lasted 3 years, repressed dissent including inadequately far-left factions, kept eating itself alive until retaken by Spain.

Rojava
> using the ethnostate name of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria, smh ;^)

7 years in, expansionistic and steeped in internal conflict, apparently. I'll be surprised if they last beyond another 7 years.

Zapatista Chiapas
> a "Blood-and-Soil" ethnonationalist quasi-state /s

"[…] synthesizes Mayan tradition with elements of libertarian socialism, anarchism, and Marxism."

Eh, at a glance, the worst I can say is, they seem to idolize Che Guevara.

Also, seems like most of their harshest critics are — wait for it… — socialists! For not being socialist enough, so they must be doing something right… ;^)


the USSR and Voovoozela
You "forgot" the CRP, DPRK, Cuba…


If you wanna discuss further
Nah, bruh, I think we've had our fill, thanks.

Holy shit where do I even start? I just wanted to post a funny meme, man.

How about, look at literally every socialist country ever?

This idea that every socialist society ever resulted in tyranny is demonstrably false, my guy. There's Revolutionary Catalonia, Rojava, Zapatista Chiapas, and many more if you can be bothered to look beyond the USSR and Voovoozela.


Chiapas, officially the Free and Sovereign State of Chiapas, is one of the 32 states that make up the 32 federal entities of Mexico.
Isn´t that like calling Florida Free and Sovereign?
Rojvana is from 2016, not sure if we can pull them in here they did not even last 1 generation at this point in time, but hey they are already last longer than Revolutionary Catalonia (21 July 1936 – 1939)

Communist China (1949–present) and USSR (1919–1991) at least can Claim a Long running System.

And yes I agree you just wanted to make a funny meme, but are These really the best example you can give?

let's strip everyone of their basic civil rights until they're ready for Marx's vision of True Communism™

For one, there are more kinds of socialism that the Orthodox Marxist perspective. Socialism isn't a hegemonic hivemind. For two, even within the Marxist POV there's differences on what the step between capitalism and communism should look like, and plenty of these perspectives are more libertarian in nature (e.g. Luxemburgism). On top of that, there are several socialist modes of organising the economy that hardly even involve the state (e.g. Market/Co-operative Socialism or Syndicalism).

Nope. (in response to "You're getting communism and socialism mixed up."

Again, socialism is not a hegemonic hivemind. Hell, if there's one constant throughout history it's that the left with split amongst itself and be divided against each other lmao. There are plenty of left-wingers/socialists who don't view communism as a desirable or realistic end goal, at least in their lifetimes. While all communists are socialists, not all socialists are communists.

If it helps, refer to this graphic.

Socialism is the "Dictatorship of the Proletariat" that was deemed a necessary intermediary stage to get there.

While yes, under the Marxist POV a DotP is needed as a necessary step towards communism, the name is extremely misleading. What DotP referred to was any political system where the working class held all effective political power, as opposed to the system as it stands today (again, in Marx's POV) which is a Dictatorship of the Bourgeoisie as in today's society it's the ruling class who holds all or at least most effective political power. Lenin interpreted this to mean that his Bolshevik party, "the one true party of the proletariat", should seize all political power which of course led to the brutal excesses we saw in the USSR. But again, there are more types of socialism than just Orthodox Marxism.

Don't let the American conservatives/Libertarians calling Socialism Communism, and the "Nordic Model" Socialism, fool you.


I don't, thanks.

If you wanna discuss further, by the way, DM me or go to the political thread and talk with somebody else. I doubt the mods will be happy if we continue in the way we are.
