>>13012>Both China and North Korea are considered authoritarian regimes
Communism is generally more economic system oriented, and authoritarian governments can pick it as an economic system, but the way it's generally discussed, as far as I've seen (and I'm not exactly a fan of those threads, so I might not be entirely right) is a discussion of the benefits of a proper implementation and what might prevent it and so on.
The major difference is that "communism is good" is not the same as "Hitler is good" in the way that "USSR is good" is as bad as "Nazi Germany is good", that is, communism and authoritarianism (as systems) can be (according to people discussing) be good, while USSR, current China or Nazi Germany were definitely not.
>Does "I think you are right, but isn't that considered to be a good thing?" need elaboration?
I have no idea and I can't really judge the post. I wouldn't put a mod messing up outside of possibilities, really.
Thing is, I feel like there is some "oh, I don't want to be too hard on the posters" going on, which is why the inconsistencies are there, but I really don't think there is anything major, but I think it's worth looking at these separate occasions just in case.
I don't think this by itself should mean anything, considering piracy and drug use are entirely casual on this site.
