Help answer my argumentremoved by mod

I was in an argument with someone online about communism and I am busy doing other shit. Heres the post that this person; *_The industrial democracy will be in the business.

Can you further explain what that is and how it works? I have never heard of it bevore.

Wouldn’t there still be many jobs that needed to be done even if very few people enjoyed them? For example the workers in the supermarkets keeping the lines stocked, the ones on the offshore plattform (at least until no more oil is required in the economy) or the cleaners that tidy up a crime scene?

Wouldn’t a fair wage resolve the money problem you describe too?

And why would a lot of people want to be farmers? I get that you apparently want to be a farmer but why should everyone want to be?__* Thanks everyone!


This should be in ! , not here. And also can we not do argument by proxy? That gets annoying real fast because we don’t even know what we’re answering.


Oh sorry, and I am already done with the argument.


I get that you apparently want to be a farmer but why should everyone want to be?

Is that something you said (that everyone should want to be a farmer) or just words he put in your mouth?


He put those words in my mouth.


I would just ignore him then.

I’m not in the habit of ignoring people who ought to be ignored myself though.


Thanks, comrade Bagels.

Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
