I don't remember this show having such good production values.
If I remember correctly, it was the first show to have a budget of m an episode and had ILM behind it.

Communism is cute... BUT ITS WRONG!!!
The cartoon quote sums up my point quite well. Let me explain. Communist theory is nothing more than idealist slop. The theory sounds nice preaching equality, the end of social classes, the end of the state its self. When in reality pretty much every communist state turned into a oppressive, tyrannical states based around personality cults.
The idealism is cute, but reality proves it wrong.
CAPITALISM IS THE BEST BECAUSE IT ALL TRICKLES DOWN!!
Yes it works that way, but it also allows for upward mobility. Capitalism has had thousands of years of success while communism was a failure from the get go.
Now I know capitalism does have its injustices, but so does communism. Capitalism is the best thing we have going so stop bitching about it and get your piece of the pie.
wrong, socialism is best.
because greedy fucks need governments to control the biggest parts of an economy lest said fucks run the whole fucking thing into the ground.
and nothing trickles down, you stupid dog
Ahem... is this thing on? Capitalism has had thousands of years of success.
Capitalism has had THOUSANDS of years of success.
That is all.
There has never been a communist nation, not one that follows the principle tenets that Marx outlined as necessary to qualify- China, USSR, etc are 'State Capitalist' nations, where the State is the oligarchic capitalist/manager (I.E; someone who produces nothing of value but profits from the labour of others through legality and accumulated wealth) and the population are producers/labourers controlled by the 'plantation'. The same oligarchy exists in the western democracies, although it is a corporate plutocracy subsisting on the illusion of class mobility (which is false) and propaganda based education to keep people frothing at the mouth about how 'free' they are without ever asking what freedom actually means.
You can call yourself communist all you want, it doesn't make you one, and thus the failures of those labelled 'communist' but not fulfilling the requirements of the ideology have no basis in discrediting actual communism.
Communism is best enacted on a small, municipal scale, rather than entire nation-states trying for it, and it is perfectly viable on said scale, productive, peaceful and socially democratic. Yes, democratic. The idea that Communism is inherently undemocratic is a blatant falsehood whipped up by the same people responsible for Cena_Mark's trailer park view of the world.
As an anarchist, however, I agree with Bakunin's view, and as history has shown, he was correct.
Solho: Wah wah wah, rich people are greedy. They only got rich by being deceitful and mean. Rich people are evil...
Are you sure you believe in socialism or is Haterism a better word for it?
SUMMARY OF WHY CAPITALISM IS SO DAMN AWESOME:
-We have enjoyed its unparalleled benefits for trillions of years, since before the big bang, which was caused by the free market.
-Communism doesn't work, therefore capitalism does.
-Upward mobility! Today's french fry salter is tomorrow's king of McDonaldland! This happens constantly all the time.
-Because Solro is RACIST against rich people.
-Shut up! That's why!
No upwards mobility? I forgot that Bill Gates was born a billionaire.
The fact is most millionaires weren't born that way. They are your hard working pick up truck millionaires. They're not your country club, snooty, liberal millionaires who were born that way. And yes Xenocide, there are plenty of fry salters who have become super successful in the fast food industry. It just takes a little hard work... a concept alien to most liberal crybabies.
Well that's exactly what China is doing.
My plan to become a millionare has been foiled by capitalism. Let me explain. I recently invested alot of money in electric carts that would act as free taxis. The drivers would be paid in tips and my cart and profits would be made from advertisments on the vehicles. Since there was no rate being charged, and no emissions from my vehicles, I didn't need a permit to operate. It was beautiful and I helped keep drunks from driving.
So beautiful that my competion, the taxi cabs, sued me won and are now doing what I did with a hybrid vehicle. Your broad blanket of "capitalism uber alles" needs some tweaking.
Don't give up on capitalism Dizzy Gillespie lots of great capitalists experienced failures even bankruptsy before making it big.
I know you wouldn't bitch about it if your company had been a success.
Thank god you're putting more work into your nicknames.
