Hi I'm Rose. I've been livin' in a tent for a couple months and want to travel eventually. Folk-punk is cool I guess. Communism is also pretty cool.

Welcome. I am originally from about 8 miles west of Akron, Wadsworth. That was 2/3 of my life ago. Good decision to exit Ohio, methinks.

Hi, old person here. Communism does sound good in theory, but I'm old enough to remember that it didn't work so well in real life. Capitalism still fucking sucks, though!
It didn't work because it was never reached. Its very difficult to reach full communism in a capitalist world market, especially when you have the entire world trying to fucking destroy you lol. Communism can only really be achieved after major social strides have been taken. The people of the world have to want communism, which might very well happen once the robots start taking all our jobs and forcing us to live off the backs of the uber-wealthy who own these machines. I agree that the attempts that were made in the past were unsuccessful, I do not agree with the methods that were used in said attempts, but I can rationalize the many reasons why they didn't succeed, marxian thought was not one of those reasons.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$90.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $90.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
