The Situation in IraqGreetings, comrades of the CPDA!
I apologize for taking so long to write this, however I was pre-occupied with studies amongst other things. This should have been written 3 weeks ago, but things got in the way. However, I can now so, let us begin. Feel free to skip to whatever section you prefer, as this is a relatively long paper.
Note: This is not my usual political-theorizing; this is mostly a retelling of what's going on in Iraq, plus outlooks from an Arab's and a Marxist's perspective. Feel free to ask any questions.
Iraq is a country in South-Western Asia that has historically been called “”Mesopotamia”, the Cradle of Civilization. Everything from writing, organized farming, cities, mathematics, astronomy, and organized military originates from that ancient land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. I say this to keep you, the reader, aware of the fact that Iraq isn’t “just some country”, it’s the birthplace o
The Problems with Anarcho-CapitalismWe’ve all heard of the great lie of the bourgeois; of the Capitalists. When confronted with the horrors of the immoral system, they do nothing but scream “that’s not real Capitalism!”, whilst attempting to wash away the crimes of it. They cry over non-invasive governments, of allowing the system to not be manipulated with, unregulated Capitalism; free enterprise.
As Communists we see through their outright fallaciousness, however many seem to swear by the notion of unregulated free enterprise. How would it look like? How would it benefit? How does it differ from our modern-day Capitalism?
They claim it creates jobs and allows for employment for everyone, they state wild distortions and promises of wealth and success to those who “work hard enough”. Besides the blatant hypocrisy of that statement, it is more than easy to disprove such outrageousness. How about those who slave away, endless hours a month, with no education, healthcare, or work-r
Human Nature - Stagnant, or Manipulable?Greetings, comrades of the CPDA!
This is an extract from a debate I had with a particular anti-Communist, in which I explained to him how human nature can be manipulated and shaped, making the "Communism is against human nature" argument completely fall apart.
"As a Communist, I fluently understand the base-superstucture theory, which easily explains why you believe that human nature is naturally "evil" and "greedy". Basically, there is a base, which is the Socio-Economic system (Capitalism in this case). It includes the relations and means of production, meaning the Bourgeois own the means of production, and the relations, meaning the bourgeois exploits the proletariat. This creates and continuously shapes the superstructure, which is basically an array of society. For example, politics, religion, family setup, media, human nature amongst many more things. The superstructure, since it is formed from the base, continuously reinforces the base.
I'll word it like this: T
On Nazism and Socialism - Practice vs TheoryGreetings, comrades of the CPDA!
I recently stumbled upon this piece of supreme idiocy whilst randomly browsing DA:
Once I put my mind back together after witnessing such extreme ignorance regarding history, politics, economy and general knowledge, I decided to write something in response to it.
Nazi Germany was a state within central Europe which existed between 1933 and 1945, and ended up starting World War II, or “The Great Patriotic War”, as known to the Russians. Nazi Germany was ruled by Adolf Hitler, and his party, the National Socialist German Worker’s party (NSDAP, “Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei”). The war the Fascists brought upon the world resulted in the deaths of 50 million people, at the lowest estimates, and 110 million, at the highest.
Many historians argue over what ideology Nazi Germany followed, since they are cl
On the Deaths under Capitalism and 'Communism'Greetings, comrades of the CPDA!
Excuse my inactivity; I have been preoccupied with studies for a while now. I have however found a small window of time in which I am able to write this. Expect around 6 more essays in the near future (about actual theory, not silly anti-Communist disputing).
EDIT: I actually heavily despise how I wrote this >_>
After working on this for a little while, I realized how pointless it is. While it is true that Capitalism has inherently caused the deaths on many, many people, and that Communism has killed literally zero people, since it never existed, I found this futile. It all fell down to defending the USSR, PRC and all other “Communist” countries, which are actually quite far from it. Realistic figures for the so-called “Communist” countries range between 30-50 million (which are from famines mostly, yet I did not factor in famines under Capitalism since the death toll would sky-rocket), while the horrifically exaggerated n
Quotations from myself, a Marxist-LeninistThis is a list of quotes that I've said over the years, of which some I believe might provide a nice perspective for some people.

Life Is But IronyWhen you learn the one thing you wish to possess the most will never be within your reach. The ones you wish to please will be the source of your dismay and the ones you try your best to make proud will be the most disappointed.
The harder we struggle the stronger gravity pulls us down and yet we accept these terms calling them tests or divine punishment. What is there to live for but endless pursing and torment. We are given scraps of delight which we are to consider the most expensive of treasures. For if there is no suffering, how can we learn the weight of joy?
If there is satisfaction with out the effort, what else do we live for? The dread will give us relief. The pain will give us the pleasure. We will always be in a world full of irony and discontent.
The more one is cursed, the more one is blessed.
No body really lays their dreams to rest. We will forever be haunted by the regret and guilt of so many things we've wasted. But the more there are burdens to live and costs to cond
LOVENothing else matters
Creativity is the path
Love is the ultimate
form of communication.
But it can be
Love is simplicity,
Love is small,
you cannot find it
in the big things.
Love is how wind passes
Through chimes or the
squeak of your porch swing
The amount of love
for a place depends on
the amount of time
spent in that place.
Love for people
is what they help
in that place,
what you discovered
to you, how it led
to the completeness
of your soul.
Nothing you buy
can complete you,
unless it is a means
What you read
cannot complete you
but what you learned
from that reading
can lead you to
discovering what is
hidden about yourself.
What you eat
cannot complete you,
it can only supply you
with energy and will
to further complete
and discover new mysteries.
What you watch
cannot complete you
but only give you
vague insight of
what you do not know
AntecedenceWhen something is amiss, no matter how bad.. judge the cause of the problem, rather than

The Voice of the VoicelessThe Voice of the Voiceless
The voice of the voiceless,
will go to the person who can speak on camera.
A person who will put the message out for everyone.
The voice of the voiceless,
will go to the person who is fair.
The person who never uses bias to put there views on the air.
The voice of the voiceless,
will go to the person who doesn't use the follows as a trophy.
The person who cares about the follows and will do anything to make their voices heard.
The voice of the voiceless,
will go to the person who is a leader and not a follower.
A person who will raise the flag and not bring it down.
A leader is not a person who will back-stab the people,
This person will be a loyal leader.
A leader is always fair and balance.
A leader will not kill anyone,
This person will not be Hitler or Stalin.
This person will be Martin Luther King Jr or Mahatma Gandhi.
The leader needs to be good.
The leader needs to be sharp.
The leader needs to be open-minded.
Who will be the leader is anyone's guess,
saying ... 5?"even the strongest of us have a right to cry. for crying is not weakness. it is not giving up. I is not lowering your guard. tears help us to heal and show us that we are still human no matter what we have been through. it may take a while for tears to flow. it may take years for hurt to show. but if your heart still aches from old wounds or bleeds from a fresh break the dry well of your soul will begin to flood and tears will finally wash away the pain of the past. no matter how recent the injury. we must cry in order to heal. remember that even the strongest of us have our breaking points."

OCs Are ArtEach and every OC is a child.
Born and crafted from your mind to your will.
Like snowflakes each character is unique in their own way.
They may have similar traits yes. But that does not mean that they are overused or cliche.
They are unique and interesting in their own universe. A shy girl in one universe is completely different compared to a shy girl in a different universe. In fact they shouldn't even be compared!
It all depends on what the character is. There is no "typical" character. Each and every character is different in each and every universe. Those separate universes are a whole 'nother ball game out there, and the characters of those universes belong in their universe. If it's a Sci-fi themed universe or completely fantasy with dragons and such! If the character has a logical and not over done backstory I say let it be! After all in this day and age nearly everything has been done so it's impossible to make a character that ISN'T "cliche" or "overused" or "typical". So it'
To those who chose to play it safe.You know, the more I look around, the more I keep seeing people just deciding to just tuck their tails in between their legs. They keep thinking that the best way to go about this is to do the “mature” thing and “play it safe”. Always choosing to be quiet, always afraid that they may somehow offend someone but not caring who, always walking on eggshells, always holding it in, always falling back on comfortable yet lazy excuses like “it’s their company”, never willing to take the chance, and always passing up every opportunity to right the situation, but instead choosing to stick to their memories and just “move on”.
Being silent and reserved about this is not the way to go about this. This whole self-defeating attitude will send SEGA the message that we are not willing to provide any resistance and will provoke them to get away with doing even MORE of the fundamental mistakes that is tearing Sonic’s world apart. We have to be

what if those who love us today, wouldn't if we hadn't yet learned?
How can we ever know what is unconditional love?

A Little Thought on the Education SystemI've always had a problem with the overall method of education that goes about in our paradigm. My main focus was the fact that teachers and professors grade students; why is that?
To gauge a student's performance, surely.
But why is it single-sided?
How so is it that educators are made into authority figures that, in most cases, abuse their power?
It's simple, these traditions are nothing but rules dictated by our flawed past.
This must change if we are to witness any global improvement in overall performance of students within all fields.
I personally believe that this problem can be easily remedied through a more "three-dimensional" grading system. One in which educators are allowed to grade students on their performance as usual, but also a system in which students are allowed to grade teachers, to gauge their performance.
This system would function, simply put, as such:
Students are allowed to grade their educators, and if they fall below a certain level, they would have to
