The Chinese Communist Revolution, because of how crazy it is that a society such as the Chinese, with thousands of years of history, traditions, symbols and culture that had nothing to do with socialist ideals, managed to turn the second largest and most populous country on earth into a marxist economy. It's also crazy to think that all those people believed they were doing the right thing. The biggest brainwash in human history.
>>41109 'Newspeak' was created to simplify the way of thinking, while 'Simplified Chinese' was created to help the poorer Chinese become more literate. They both were created for vastly different reasons and for you to equate them is absolutely childish.
>>40962 Mao got the Chinese people to worship some mangoes because he touched them, sorry but believing that the private property of the means of production is a desirable thing but slaughtering bourgeois white males isn't does not constitute the same level of "brainwash"
What worries me about socialism, and Marxism in general, is that it is not based on sound economic science but morality. It doesn't matter if you tell a Marxist that his policies will lower the quality of life drastically for the majority of the population, or stifle scientific and academic progress, he'll simply respond with "But capitalism is unfair."
That being said, my favorite socialist revolution is the Paris Commune because it's also the shortest one.
>>41301 >Radically altering the entire character system and redefining the meaning of thousands of characters to fit with Marxist doctrine in order to bring about Communism isn't Newspeak I mean yeah, if Mao didn't destroy hundreds of schools and set back educating the peasants in literacy for several years, I could see how "We can make the peasants read!" would also be a nice side effect.
>>41623 Rojava has me impressed as well. It even makes me think that perhaps Rojava's ideology might work on the long run. Considering the fact that they have survived despite multiple economic boycots implemented by Erdogan and his Syrian proxies.
>>41710 Assyrians fight alongside the YPG except for a small part that are part of Assad's militia. Assyrians are part of the PYD and Rojava and are represented in EVERY part of the political structure. That's a lot more than Assad has to offer and infinitely better than how rebels in other parts of Syria treat Christians.
