  3. Look how fat this kid’s become living in a capitalist society, even burping up into the mic. Seriously, who lets their kid get this fat but it’s evidence of the vast abundance of cheap and delicious foods in capitalist America. Look at the beautiful American homes that surround him. Under a communist regime he’d live in total poverty and squalor and he wouldn’t be able to make a video expressing his dreams about another society. It’s an irrefutable historical fact that communist regimes have never been able to meet the basic needs of the people.

    What you people don’t understand is that you cannot create utopia through human institutions. Human institutions are flawed and corrupt because humans are flawed and corrupt. Therefore, it makes sense to keep the government the fuck OUT of people’s lives and to let them work for their own betterment without government interference. This is essentially the principle America was founded on. You know, the America that is THE MOST PROSPEROUS AND FREE NATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

  4. Louis should keep you around as a house jester. Of course you should know that he is to poor to pay you a celery.

  5. Actually, it is an irrefutable fact that capitalist regimes have never been able to meet the basic needs of the people. No capitalist country has ever achieved full employment or abolished homelessness. The capitalist United States has never achieved universal health coverage. By contrast, every socialist state guaranteed employment, housing, health care, education and a whole host of benefits to all their citizens; these rights and benefits were enshrined in their Constitutions.

    Nice try.
