Whatever. Talk in circles all you want to. Communism as a government and the people who executed that form of government have untold millions of deaths on their hands and nothing but a long list of failures at their attempt at that style of government.

"I said no such thing. Hitler was giving orders to carry out mass murder. Giving orders falls squarely into the category of carrying something out.

And Stalin gave out orders for the mass murder of millions in Siberia alone. No telling how many other Russians died because of his ORDERS!

You're right I mixed up Marx with Lenin. I'll concede THAT point only.

And to get back to my comparison between the two. The National Socialist Party (you might know them as the Nazi Party) and Socialist Russia (a.k.a. Communist Russia) as a system never killed anyone. The people who subscribed to and trumpeted those systems of government did. Ergo...Socialism AND Nazi-ism BOTH have the blood of millions on their hands.

When did I say Stalin wasn't responsible for mass murder?

And you obviously don't know very much about what Marx actually wrote (it was a bunch of economic theory, much of it BS, but no call to mass murder).

Marx did not advocate mass murder. If you disagree with this assertion, show me where I'm wrong.
