Quote# 36010

Given the choice between a man who believes in Creationism and a man who believes in socialism, I'll always side with the former. Socialism is a demonstrably false religion aimed at enslaving mankind. Socialism is the opiate of the masses.

You haven't a fucking clue as to what Socialism is, even when it might actually be in your personal economic interest. (based on the assumption that rich people actually have better things to do than sit on the internet and post drivel like this)

Just STFU. You're embarrassing yourself.

Socialism! It ends in "ism"! It must be a religion!

3/9/2008 7:50:10 PM


Evolution =/= Socialism

"opiate of the masses"? One of Marx's most well known quotes, turned backwards? I'm getting a troll/poe vibe here.

Wow, you fail at political science.

3/9/2008 8:15:23 PM


I love it when theists try to insult an ideology by calling it a religion.

3/9/2008 8:17:22 PM


What? No, really, how does this work?

Socialism is not a "demonstrably" false religion. It's not a religion AND there is not such a dicotomy between a scientific theory and a religious one with no basis on reality.

3/9/2008 8:37:53 PM


Wait, wait?! You think socialism is evolution?
This is what we call a 'fundy intellectual'.

Soon, Autism, Sexism and Rheumatism will be considered religions too.

Or well educated fundie.

Eggo, very likely a peaux.

Socialism is a political ideology, n00b. :P

3/9/2008 9:26:05 PM


I wonder his opinion to social security.

3/9/2008 9:32:35 PM


Plagiarising from Marx, are you?

Socialism is the opiate of the masses.

Has a nice ring to it. Sounds vaguely familiar.

3/9/2008 9:46:24 PM


Doesn't it depend on what the creationist and socialist are discussing?

3/9/2008 9:57:53 PM


Socialism is a religion like capitalism is!

"Socialism is a demonstrably false religion aimed at enslaving mankind."

Is there anything that isn't a religion to you people?

"Socialism is the opiate of the masses."

That was more clever when Marx said it. Mostly because he was spot on about it when he referred to religion. You're just being derivative which is neither creative nor amusing.

I'm going with Bill Bailey on this one - opiates are the opiate of the masses!

3/9/2008 10:22:55 PM


Well, history has proven socialism, as an ideology, to be an efficient tool of controlling people. As has it facism, the entertainment industry, organized religion, iliteracy and poverty.

That's not how the saying goes...

"Given the choice between a man who believes what I do and a man who believes in something else, I'll always side with the former. Things that other people believe are demonstrably false religions aimed at enslaving mankind. Probably."

Socialism is not a religion.

I know your world revolves around a 5 lb book, but step away from it and there's a big huge wonderful world to see.

Unless of course, your afraid.

If socialism is the opiate of the masses, organised religion is the marijuana of the lunatic fringe.
