The first few words of the soviet national anthem are "Unbreakable Union" ("союз нерушимый")
Yet they all succeeded, more-or-less without bloodshed.
I am quarter-Czech through my (non-Jewish) grandmother, who escaped the Nazis just before the war started by coming to Britain. She decided to stay here, renounce her Czech citizenship and start a family... eventually resulting in me. I'm always quite proud of how Czechoslovakia managed to split peacefully (called the Velvet Divorce due to its lack of bloodshed) without riots, civil wars, strife and the rest.
Here is an interesting section quoted directly from Rick Steves, the American travel writer:
"In that age of new possibility [directly after the fall of Communism] the two peoples of Czechoslovakia began to wonder if, in fact, they belonged together.
Ever since they joined with the Czechs in 1918, the Slovaks felt they were ruled from Prague (unmistakably the political, economic, and cultural centre of the country), rather than from their own capital. And the Czechs, for their part, resented the financial burden of carrying their poorer neighbours to the east. In the post-communist world, the Czechs found themselves with a 10 percent unemployment rate...compared with 20 or 30 percent in the Slovak lands. In this new world of flux and freedom, long-standing tensions came to a head.
The dissolution of Czechoslovakia began over a hyphen, as the Slovaks wanted to rename the country Czecho-Slovakia. Ideally, this symbolic move would come with a redistribution of powers: two capitals and two UN reps, but one national bank and a single currency. The Slovaks were less enthusiastic about abandoning the communist society altogether, since the Soviet regime had left them with a heavily industrialised economy that depended on a socialist element for survival.
In June of 1992, the Slovak nationalist candidate Vladimir Meclar fared surprisingly well in the elections - suggesting that the Slovaks were serious about secession. The politicians ploughed ahead, getting serious about the split in September of 1992. The transition only took three months from start to finish.
The people of Czechoslovakia never actually voted on the separation; in fact, public opinion polls in both regions were two-thirds against the split. This makes Slovakia quite possibly the only country in the history of the world to gain independence... even though its citizens didn't want it."
Anyway, I hope people found that at least vaguely interesting. Have a nice day. :)
According to issue 583, disrupting public events with a vuvuzela is a form of political freedom... ._.
So anything that doesn't conform with what you think is communist? Good thinking! You will also, please enlighten me, where is the communist part in what I said. I'm afraid you got me a bit lost there.
You should read a bit more about Capitalism from Adam Smith or David Ricardo to start with. Then go to some Keynesian economics (you know, the thing that the biggest communist country in the world - USA - did after the Great Depression back in 1929). Then go to John Stuart Mill. Once you've done all that, compare them with Communism and Socialism. Once you've done that, come here and accuse whoever you want of communist ideals.
The part saying the true enemy was the upper class. Plus, nice try trying to take what I said out of context. That's not what I meant. I mean that certain culture can't mix so they must be separated. Communism and Fascism is a great example.
I didn't say they were the enemy. That's you projecting your personal views into mine. I say they're to blame but that's quite different than viewing them as an enemy or adversary or something to be eradicated which is what communism thinks.
I have no problem with people earning money and going up the social ladder. I do have a problem with incompetence, corruption, lies and manipulation because someone doesn't want to get out of its seat and work, instead using the "lower" classes for their benefit. I have a problem with someone making money by exploiting millions of people. I have a problem with poisoning an entire city water supply system just to make a couple of millions. I have a problem with manipulating prices (or the market in general) to get a couple of millions more. I have a problem with people being rich not because of their merits but because of their friends and manipulations. If, in your view, that makes me a communist, I can live with that as I sure am not one. There's a difference between being a communist and wanting social or economic justice. No one should be kept from making as much money as they can as long as it's legit and fair.
You'd do well to make that distinction. Communism vs social justice.
Communism and fascism are more alike than you think and that's why they can't live together. Not because they're so different but because they're so alike. In fact, many of the fascist principles like the Nazi party in Germany are called "socialists". If you study in detail the economic organisation of Fascist and Communist countries you'll find out that there aren't that many differences. In any case and regardless the fact is that neither of them are "culture". They're political ideologies and that's not culture as the same "culture" can go from left to right, from communism to fascism in a heart beat. Example, Eastern Europe, Russia. They all went from being "communist" to fervent capitalists. Look at Russia. Led by a former KGB officer, who's nothing but capitalist. This, my friend, is not culture.
And there's not one single culture that cannot mix with others. The problem is quite different. The problem is everyone thinks they're better than the others and, nowadays, no one respects anyone. Example, the so called "femnazis". They try so hard to defend their points of view that they end up disrespecting everyone else thus becoming intolerant. On the other hand, the term "femnazi" itself is disrespectful and this creates a loop. You disrespect me, I disrespect you and you disrespect me some more. It never ends and this is why "cultures" don't mix. Teach people to respect others and you'll see if there are cultures who can't mix. You haven't been reading Clash of Civilizations by Samuel Huntington by any chance, have you? Because he's the one who says that and he basis is analysis on completely empirical evidence which is quite bad for an author to start his argument.
Anyway, regardless of your point of view in cultures mixing or not, you shouldn't mix political ideologies and culture. The first one changes all the time. The second one is part of the identity of a people, regardless of them being a nation or not.
Sorry for the wall of text and sorry if I came out a bit too aggressive. Half asleep when I wrote this. Just woke up. Ta!
Gay pride flag launched into space! (Insert safe space pun here)
Happy National Coffee Day!
