My great grandmother lived in Armenia when the Armenian genocide happened in 1915. She was actually orphaned into a family since she had been separated from her own during the genocide. She cleaned and cooked and worked in that home. She had three brothers, two of them were killed in the genocide by turks. Her last brother alive had found her home and he would come to her home everyday. He would call her name from outside of the house, to see his sister. And everyday he would beg and cry and plead that she take him in, but the family that she had been orphaned into didn’t want him because he had nothing to provide for them. She was doing all work around the house, and he didn’t know how to cook so he was unworkable and useless. But one day he stopped coming to her house and she never found out what happened to him. She didn’t see her brother again. My great grandmother was the only one in her family who had survived the Armenian genocide and it’s just crazy to think that if she had been killed that I wouldn’t be here, or my family wouldn’t be here, or whatever is left of Armenia wouldn’t even be here.
Communists on here who loathe capitalism bother me. Did they even read Marx? He loved capitalism, and thought it was one of the better economic systems out there. It raised the standard of living all around, which helped everybody. He just thought that eventually it would cease to continue to increase the standards of living at an acceptable pace, and then should be phased out for his model. If they're going to cling to an unworkable system, they should at least know what its creator thought.
