No that's right, in the socialist societies what happens is that you can't get ANYTHING that you do need. Including food or basic necessities. Oh and then if you wanna be self-sufficient and grow all your own food and do everything yourself? Sorry faggot, everything you make belongs to the kolkhoz, and they will come and confiscate every last bit of it and literally leave you, the person who grew all the food, fucking starving while they feed the lazy ingrates who did nothing.
Sure, sooner or later they'll just round the lazy farmers up and put a bullet in the back of their heads and they won't be a drain anymore, but you'll still be starving and paying into a system that will never produce enough to break even.
Yeah, that's great. Let's do that.
INB4 "not real communism" except it fucking is.
And there's shitloads of consumerism in China too and that's "real communism" too because the whole country is full of Marxists. And in their case, they don't have starvation or lack of anything, they just have a complete abolition of their human rights and BTW they literally can't even own bitcoin LMAO. Their government made it illegal. Nice.
That is communism for you. It demands full and total control. You genuinely thought you were gonna get "freedom" under communism? God, you sure were one of the useful idiots, then.
TLDR criticizing consumerism or any aspect of our present society does not in any justify communism as all of you fucking retards seem to act like it does anytime ANY person on this green Earth pipes up with a complaint about ANYTHING. NOR can you simply blame everything bad on capitalism.
