Castro on Socialism and Capitalism by mido557 Castro on Socialism and Capitalism by mido557
A wonderful quote that most people can't answer to, because it is the inherent truth.

(I just know someone is gonna cherry-pick one or two countries and generalize -.-)

Most of the really poor and undeveloped African nations are communist, such as Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Angola and even South Africa to a certain extent.

Good point, but it's kind of a red herring. "They talk about this, so let's talk about something else."

Fun fact that i see my own motherland like a mix of communist and capitalism. And you will be shock when you know how well it working together.

Capitalism: We have free market, everyone can trade whatever they like. 'Open shops is even more easy then in "Free World" when you have a house' as my Dutch friend say. Go everywhere you like, just don't forget or lost your ID and pasport. We have bank, yes, everyone save their money in bank.

Communist: No BANK control us. One party only, thanks ancient gods and ancestor that i don't need to see OLD MAN WRESTLING on TV every goddamn weekend or see a protests that force me to closed my shop because everyone to scare to go outside. A good army that fight not for the rich but for the people.

And all this good we have now is not thank to AEMRI F#*%ing CA.

Not due to the system itself, but either due to internal turmoil (such as in the USSR, a sort of "tug-of-war" happened between the Communists and the Social Democrats, and the Reactionaries won), or due to external influence (American aggression/Imperialism).

Hong Kong. ROK, need I say more and oh, Japan.

If you read the description, you'd notice that I wrote: "I just know someone is gonna cherry-pick one or two countries and generalize".
That, my friend, is exactly what you have done.

Hong Kong through inexcusable and horrific exploitation and the ROK through billions upon billions being thrown at by the US. Japan is the only country that has built itself on it's own and that was through mainly social-policies.
Also, 2 countries (not counting Japan because of reasons above) out of 47 in Asia don't really say that much good about Capitalism now, does it?

Better luck next time.

An attack on a heavily misunderstood country?
Huh, somewhat cliche if you ask me.

Anywho, sources?
Oh wait, you have none.
Silly me, expecting credibility from an anti-Communist.
