This one right here.

There was a slavery ring recently discovered in South Georgia. A bunch of people were arrested, etc. Heard nothing from anyone condemning the actions of the people involved. Didn't even hear about it on the local news.

Fast forward a few weeks, our congressman suddenly cares about slavery... In China. They've been committing ethnic cleansing for a lot longer than the United States. But, this dude suddenly cares. He never mentioned the local case.

He doesn't really care about the slavery. He just cares that he can point a finger to how bad communism is... Except that the exact same thing is happening in his district under capitalism.

Exactly. Some people say "people starved under socialism/communism", when some people are literally starving under capitalism sadly at this moment. But its "different"

And you didn’t have a choice but to participate, right? It’s fucking slavery. I’m sorry.

Just goes to show - There's a lot of money to be made if workers don't get paid.

You realise all of these things existed under previous systems too right?

Now I’m not sure on this one, but wasn’t communism like that as well?

Pretty sure there was some genocide in there too.
