I'm wondering what would he do on Christmas... probably go to my house, take all the stuff and redistribute it to the less wealthy... :O_o:

Looks like a pencil sketch. I'm curious how photoshop can always make things look like different media, I need to be experimenting more. However if this wacko was Santa Claus, would my christmas present be a sentence in one of Joe Stalin's Siberian labor camps, or perhaps be one of 70 million dead in Mao Tsung's "cultutal revolution!"

give it a rest, marx wasnt alive for the soviet or chinese revolution. you cant judge marx on the actions of people who were not alive during his time. im sure marx would be disgusted by many of the things done to carry out the revolution or even during the application of a politicail idea the falsly claimed was communism,

Oh, Like Che Guevera (who's your avatar) who murdered more than 20,000 innocent people under Fedel Castro's rule in Cuba. It's not mere coincidence that every single government built on the ideal of economic collectivism turned into a brutal dictatorship.

are you implying they injoy killing? somehow i dought that.

che fought in the revolution and tried war crimanils, now if you have a problem with them putting torturers and men who killed the innocent 6-feet under then thats your oppinion, now if americans chased and in sumtimes killed loyalist during the american revolution is okay, but latin american nations sticking up for their belifs isnt?. i have no problems with what took place during the (cuban) revolution.

The American revoulution was very different than nearly every other revolution in history. We replaced tyranny with a Republican government very limited in power. The various revolutions throughout south America simply replaced one dictatorship with another. Castro ended religious freedom, the free press, the right to keep and bear arms, jailed and killed anyone who he happened to oppose his policies,outlawed all other political parties, made himself "president for life" and confiscation of private property. I would not call cuba a free society. Face the truth, Castro, Che, and their cronies were very power hungry men who cared nothing for their fellow cubans, only poitical power. The measure of any free society is the right to private propery and the means to privately own capital to this end, your life, the upbringing of your kids according to one's own religious beliefs, the right to own weapons for self protection, the right to speak and write freely against your own government, and the right to practice religion uninhibited by government srutiny. Castro honored none of these things.

castro was trying to keep his nation together, thats normaly a goal when the nation that supported the reigeme before trys to invade you. i dont agree with alot of the methods but i agree with the goal. alot of cubans today are patriots, no matter if its communist or any other kind of politicail idea, and seeing as they were abused and used and a whore and coke house during the 50s by batista i think there okay with the revolution.

I'm certainly not saying Batista was a wonderful leader, but what essentially happened in Cuba was the Cubans traded in one dictator for another. If you want an example of a good revolution, you need look no farther than 1776 to the American Revolution, or to 1861 when the Southern States were rightfully offended by Lincoin's stepping on their state sovereignty. The French, Chinese, Russian, Mexican, and various African , Latin American, and Souteast asian ones are not good examples to follow- these simply replaced a dictator/King with some charasmatic personality who then became a new tyrant in his own right.

you seem to forget that just because someones the dictator of their nation, they can be good leader to. i would be a great dictator but a horrible president.
