How did socialist governments and economies actually work? Like, what where the specifics?

>Germany is a socialist country
>Just ignore all those private megacorps like BASF, Siemens, Bayer, ThyssenKrupp, Volkswagen, Allianz, etc.
Do retards forget that the USA and western Europe were literally allies in the Cold War? The EU's predecessors had CIA backing because the Americans wanted a strong European economic bloc to resist the Warsaw Pact.

Germany also gets to be so prosperous from its military being subsidized by the US.

>Shouldn't they attempt to only work with other countries who share their socialist values
That'd literally be a self imposed blockade, they'd strangle themselves from a lack of trade.
Globalization has made it impossible for anyone to be an Autarky these days. Even a "closed economic bloc" like the EU still negotiates big trade deals with other countries, because they need their stuff to make more stuff
>>
>>9937104
>This dimwitted take again
The German army, during the Cold War, was actually the biggest in Europe, and the German government kept it well funded because it was literally the first line of defence against the Soviet Union.
Not to mention that Germany was already prospering during the Kaiserreich period, when they had the world's most bloated military budget. German economic dominance has more to do with their central location in Europe, good governance, and well educated/skilled working population.

>>9937104
Also forgot to add that France is also relatively prosperous, and they fund their own military endeavors and reject American support as a matter of policy. France paid for its own nukes, its own MBTs, its own nuclear aircraft carrier, its own jets, etc. While also being able to fund its big welfare state and having French companies like Renault or Carrefour thrive in the market

Too many pussy-ass philosophies are focused on the minimization of pain and suffering at all costs. To be human is to suffer, motherfucker. Learn to live with the pain and carve out a noble existence based of perseverance and overcoming of challenges you fucking pussy faggots.

If we consider History,

There is a long tradition in Europe of the faith inspiring people to believe they could be healed by revering the remains of saints, for example, or that miracles could occur by for example, praying to a saints bones or even their breast milk. Well Im not sure they prayed to breast milk, but Breast milk was considered a Christian relic, this is a fact.

My opinion on the whole matter is that it actually speaks on the tendecies of Europeans to worship particular sites or objects, and then suddenly feel like, or believe they are "healed", or a Miracle occurs. Consider pre-Christian worship for example at the Temple of Venus, if Im not mistaken. there was one found in France, and according to the account, the waters healed them, but you know what I mean, it was quite common for people to worship Gods and Goddesses, expecting to be healed, and so it makes sense that tradition continued on in Christianity

MENA people were considered to be effeminate nerds while Nords were considered to be masculine idiots in antiquity. It’s funny how the stereotypes have completely reversed in modern times.

Ali? Strong as ten regular men, definitely. He faced the galloping hordes - a hundred bad guys with swords. Who sent those goons to their lords? Why, Ali.

>>9936993
>He was the first caliph who started civil wars
He didn't start them. Other people rose up against him because the juvenile excuse of avenging Uthman
>stopped the expansion of the caliphate
He was preoccupied by the civil war. Anyway it's not like constant expansion is a good thing. Better to consolidate your gains than to blob the map. The Umayyads dealt with constant rebellion and successful revolts like the Berber revolts and the Abbasid revolution in their short lived dynasty. The Abbasids managed to turn the eastern caliphate into their home base. The Abbasids managed to maintain power far longer than their predecessors. We've gone off topic though the thread is about Ali

I've read somewhere that without France as an ally the Ottomans would've been kicked out of the Balkans much sooner.

Can someone explain to me what I should think about this?
In certain spaces, trotsky is some hero who did nothing wrong and was ousted by Stalin with a fake conspiracy and that the world would have been a better place if trotsky gained power, meanwhile other spaces, he was an idiot, who conspired against the soviet state, who deserved it etc.

Why are so many socialist organisations today trotskyists if he was so unpopular/crazy?
>>
>>9936950
Because he lost and didn't get the chance to implement is crazy ideas.
>>
>>9936950
Because they're pussies and idiots who are afraid of being called "tankies" for defending the USSR, China, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela against American imperialist aggression. So because they're pussies, they side with American imperialism and delude themselves into thinking that after the American Empire grinds all currently existing socialist regimes into dust it can be reformed into a peaceful Trotskyist paradise.

rampant anti-Stalin propaganda in the western world. Trotsky wasn't relevant for long enough to have autists like George Orwell writing CIA-funded screeds against him
