The U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning socialism and opposing the implementation of socialist policies in America, but the Socialist Party of Great Britain claims that no country has ever been socialist.
While 109 Democrats voted for the resolution, 86 voted against passage, and 14 voted present.
Part of resolution declared that "socialism has repeatedly led to famine and mass murders, and the killing of over 100,000,000 people worldwide" and that "many of the greatest crimes in history were committed by socialist ideologues, including Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong Un, Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chavez, and Nicolás Maduro."
"No country has 'tried' socialism. It has NOT YET STARTED. Ever heard of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels? This class-free, state-free, money-free society comes about only AFTER capitalism has been rejected by working class populations.," the SPGB tweeted. "There are no socialist countries. Marxist socialism/communism (same thing) comes AFTER capitalism has been abandoned (which has not yet happened)," the party tweeted.
The SPGB asserts that North Korea's system is "STATE CAPITALISM" and that the system envisioned by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, the authors of "The Communist Manifesto," has never materialized.
"North Korea has STATE CAPITALISM. State capitalism has NOTHING to do with the class-free, state-free, money-free socialism/communism that Marx and Engels wanted and wrote about. Stop falsely blaming socialism for what state capitalism has done!" the SPGB tweeted. "The class-free, state-free, money-free socialism/communism that Marx wanted has NOT YET BEGUN. It can only come about AFTER working class populations worldwide want this new economy and have abandoned capitalism. It has killed no one — unlike capitalism," the SPGB tweeted.
"Marxist socialism IS freedom. Capitalism will always be slavery, because profits cannot be made any other way," the party tweeted. "No country's population has yet managed to free themselves and establish the socialism/communism that Marx and Engels wanted," the SPGB has claimed.
