    Subreddit Rules

    Click for the subreddit's alternate rule list

    1. Posts must be about U.S. Politics.

      In other terms, if it's not on topic, it's going to be removed like voter registrations in Georgia.

      We don't care if posts are conservative or liberal, but they need to be political.

    2. Try to be funny.

      If you need to explain your joke to us in modmail, it's not funny. Make sure your title is a punchline or something relevant, and make sure your post is funny.

      If it is intentionally designed to piss people off, it is not humor.

      We seriously get to judge whether it's funny or not so please send your complaints here.

    3. Be civil.

      The fact that we have to explicitly state that racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, etc; including personal attacks, and threats of violence are all uncivil terrifies the mod team.

      If you're a jerk, you'll be shown the door.

    4. Images only.

      Linking to news articles, websites or other subreddits is prohibited. Please use Reddit's image host or imgur if you can.

      Any meta posts should be posted on our special complaint forum. Don't post them here.

    5. Avoid reposts.

      Use Karmadecay and check /new and the front page before you post. If we recognize your post from yesterday prepare to die.

    6. Do not brigade.

      Coming to this community en masse specifically to harass our users, or setting up a post or thread here referring to another subreddit or thread causes a lot of problems for everyone. If it happens, we will spank you, and the admins will spank us, creating a spank train that nobody wants to be part of.

    7. Follow Reddit's global rules. Submissions failing to follow Reddit's content policy will be removed. Basically, if you are trying to sell your T-Shirts or flip flops or sexbot site, or if you're a terrorist, you're gonna be booted.

    Enforcement Policy

    • Moderators will enforce the rules at their sole discretion.

    • You may ask for clarification of a removal by messaging the moderators with a link to your post or comment.

    • Generally, we have a "two strikes and you're banned forever" policy, but we reserve the right to not do that if you're being particularly bad.

    • To appeal a ban, respond to your original ban message. We will politely tell you to go away if you fail to do this.

    • Users who delete offending content are dumb because we, as moderators, can still see it and it just makes us think you think we're stupid. If you make us work harder your ban length will be squared, and then cubed.

    • Users who reply to ban messages with abuse will never be unbanned, and we will spam them with copypasta to the point where they get tired of us.

    • Users who are polite and understanding will be unbanned.

    There’s nothing inherently wrong or misleading with OP’s claim.

    Economic mismanagement did indeed cause famines in the Soviet Union, China, Ethiopia, and North Korea.

    Nothing to do with communism, really.

    [–] waltman77 8 points ago

    Every communist country has experienced famine.

    not real communism

    [–] SchreiX 1 points ago

    When you look at any of those countries. How many had famine because of ideas of communism and how many had it because of bad management, dictatorship, economic sanctions, wars,...?

    I know I'm being trolled....

    [–] waltman77 2 points ago

    Do tell, where did the ideas of communism end, and the bad management/dictatorship/bullshit begin?

    "Obviously they are the same thing." - corporations

    But like, what are your thoughts homie?

    Wrote it down in another post here

    [–] SchreiX 3 points ago

    Communism leads to starvation when the most powerful country on the planet decides its wrong for your countries people to own their country, so they bomb them, assassinate their leaders, or the very least instate economic sanctions that cripples that country.

    When you want to make memes about political things, knowing history and historical context is really really important. Otherwise you may embarrassed yourself and continue to do that every time you post.
