No, that is not how theory works.
It's at least a little bit more accurate, because China is not communist.
$40,000 fine with no suspension just proves the tolerance of homophobia in the NBA. Between this disgusting tolerance of homophobia and the reliance on merchandise made in communist-controlled China, it’s pretty clear NBA players do not really care about social injustices that do not make for marketing that improves the bottom-line…I do like your cute insistence that China is somehow communist.
Wait until he finds out North Korea is a democratic republic.
He’s not wrong that most of the NBA doesn’t care about homophobia though - he’s just wrong about the rest of it.
Merchandise made in totalitarian-controlled China AKA a place where a party of 100 million individuals who call themselves communists have the power to make people disappear if they disagree with the Communist Party of China. Is that better than saying communist-controlled China?
The part you don’t understand is that communists of every sect get to decide what communism is, what it is not, and their ultimate goal is to impose their definition of communism on every freethinking individual on the planet including you. Just like there are many, many types of cancer, there are many types of communism as defined by each sect of communists. Like cancer, some varieties of communism are worse than others, but one thing is certain of all types of cancer and all types of communism: They need to be recognized and opposed, or misery and death eventually await those in denial.
Some of us are ahead of the curve. Boycott “made in China” now. Most problems in the world today can be traced back to totalitarian-controlled Russia and/or communist-controlled China. We need to isolate these cancerous killers so we can cause their people to force regime change. The world deserves peace, love and understanding.
How to Do Communism, or Communism in Practice 101:
1. Overthrow the establishment
2. Rob individuals of all private property and kill those who resist
3. Force the remaining to work for pittance in fear of saying or doing the wrong thing that makes them disappear
4. Eventually have a dysfunctional economy where many run out of food
5. Many starve to death
6. Say it wasn’t “real communism”
7. Rinse and repeat
China has cycled through the stages a number of times since WW II. In their latest attempts at command and control, they are in stage 3 with some clever illusions and technology that no communist should be given access to. As always, they are approaching stage 4 and sooner than late.
Those of you who speak of “real communism” ought to talk to real people who escaped real communist regimes in order to be clear of this monstrous idea of communism that continues to F up the world. In reality, real communism is someone calling themself communist and however it is they define communism and enforce the will of the party on everyone. The cycle is always the same as listed above. That’s “real communism” in reality, not a 19th century fairy tale.
