@SeanAloysiusOBrien on one hand, funny, but on the other, most people who had their possessions taken away during authoritarian socialist revolutions were nowhere near "too rich".

there are reports that, when the "kulaks" were being fought in the ussr, people with extended families (whose increased output resulted from said families, not serfdom or other exploitation) had their farms revoked, and in some areas simply having a slightly nicer house (and not any objective criteria) was reason enough for it to be confiscated.

@devurandom

there are reports that Joe Stalin personally broke down my door and stole my lunch money

@devurandom @SeanAloysiusOBrien Are these reports from Canadian Ukrainians whose Grand Daddies served in the SS?

@devurandom @SeanAloysiusOBrien i mean you have a post about uniting with fucking ancaps to attack communists, i don't think i'm gonna listen to your screed about how people who burned crops during a famine were the real victims.
