Immelt: The one thing that actually works, state run communism a bit may not be your cup of tea, but their government works."

“Liberal wet dreams”
That’s exactly what it is.
Murder and the threat of murder does have a way of keeping the people in line.
The Left in the country didn't give a Sh!t about the Starvation in Ukraine back then and still doesn't today.
In fact, judging by what Billy Ayers wanted to do, Ubama, Immelt and the rest of this Satanist Crew WANT an American Holodomor.
Well since no one is stopping them (or seems to care) why not?
what a blithering ass
Large shareholder value, price subsidization, low environmental regulations, etc.
Communism is good for business, that has been the model for years.
Only a fool would continue a production line in the US when ya could have done it overseas on the cheap, with communist help.
Now, through various forms of wage arbitrage we Americans are the poor saps who are getting the 'leveling' of the playing field, but that was all by design anyway.
It is really rather silly to call the present Chinese system communism. To be sure, that’s what they still call it, but names don’t make it so. All those Democratic Peoples Republics were none of those things.
Any system with many aspects of a free market economy, not to mention private property millionaires and billionaires, isn’t communist in any logical sense of the term.
Totalitarian, fascist, statist, murderous, oppressive, kleptocratic, and lots of other negative adjectives. But not communist.
It’s actually much closer to the traditional Chinese system of control by the mandarins, with scholar-officials replaced by Party members. And now with Mao gone they don’t really have the equivalent of an Emperor, so the mandarins are running a collective system of control. This never worked before in 2000+ years of Chinese history. An Emperor was needed to keep the mandarins’ corruption from getting completely out of control, which is what I suspect will happen.
North Korea, with its 3rd-generation hereditary God-King, is even farther from communism.
Exactly. China provides slave labor for the West, as well building ghost cities and roads to nowhere.
OMG...yes, I think Ayers and Obama would do the same....
That is precisely what makes China communist.
When all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating dictatorship by very definition makes China Communist.
Nope. There are numerous existing and possible varieties of totalitarianism. Communism refers to the variety that is ideologically focused primarily on enforcing human social and economic equality. In theory, of course, not practice.
Here’s the Wikipedia definition: “Communism (from Latin communis - common, universal) is a revolutionary socialist movement to create a classless and stateless social order structured upon common ownership of the means of production, as well as a social, political and economic ideology that aims at the establishment of this social order.”
China has in the last few decades drifted so far from this definition that IMO it no longer fits in the least.
I’m not sure what you mean by “a single and self-perpetuating dictatorship,” but if you mean China has an autocratic dictator, this is just no longer the case. They have a collective dictatorship by the Party leaders, but no single individual with the power of Stalin or Mao.
Elites: too lazy to design a business model where they can bring products to market, employ free men as labor and where everybody wins.
Instead, Serfdom, 2012, and the free men in America have no jobs, which is destroying the greatest consumer marketplace in the history of the world: America.
Feudalism -> Slavery -> Immigration -> Outsourcing.
This is why Traditional Judeo-Christian Small Business is best.
Perhaps you should look up the definition of communisum:
1. a theory or system of social organization based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the state.
2. A system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party.
“Elites: too lazy to design a business model where they can bring products to market, employ free men as labor and where everybody wins.”
Those that can’t (won’t) steal.
What is compulsory labour?
Seems like this is the same stuff I always hear from supporters of Free Trade with Communist China....I mean, if you still support Free Trade with Communist China, you pretty much like Communism anyway
You have to keep things in perspective. 40 years ago, everyone in China was dirt poor. Now China has 147 Billionaires and one MILLION new millionaires. It is not easy to upgrade 1,500,000,000 people’s standard of living.
Peking & Shanghai now has more millionaires than LosAngeles.
Keep this in mind the next time you hear a Democrat talking about “bringing manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.A.”. They’re envisioning your children and grandchildren manufacturing iPhones in much the same way they’re manufactured now.
Once a slave party, always a slave party. These people are evil to their core.
