okay

This flash in my opinion got a bit boring. The whole movie needed more colour instead of just yellow and red but if this was the style for this movie, that is ok with me. The music was quite good. The fireworks could have been improved and could have been made different. You have the potential to make great flash, keep improving on your style and your work will be great.

Hmm...

Ok, at first to damien519: You are right, in the past there were some mistakes done, but look what kapitalim does to the world (I don't give any examples because i think my englisch isn't that good, so sorry). But that has nothing to do with the rating the video deserves.

And now to the video: I'm calling myself a communist too, but this video was really cheesy, I mean, no Hollywood Happy-Ende could beat this, sorry, that's why my rating isn't that good. But it seems you have done some work in reserching for your video, that s a pro.

Honestly....

Wow, you are a hypocrite, you praise those who bow to you, however you bash those who speak honesty. Isn’t the back bone of socialism listing and speaking freely and living with the word and ideals of your fellow man to make a united society that excepts and shares all? You disgraced this ideal with your childish responses to those who oppose you. This why I felt it my duty to put you down a peg...

I have to say what others are afraid to say....I am not one for government. I understand that socialism is a beautiful thing...in theory. However, a good chunk of the communist/socialism leaders in the past have abused the "union of man" that is communism/socialism and have warped it in to there own vision.... a vison of greed. This is not their faut. It is sad that man is so flawed. Idealism and naivete are for the young.

I would love a society were people could live and share freely, however, not everyone is worth sharing with. (You can admit there are people you would rather not listen too, me perhaps) Unfortunately, with for true Socialism to truly work everyone has to agree to live that way. And those who disagree with the government they live in? What of those people, how dose communism work for them?

These questions will never need answers because history has already supplied them. (My mother is a Cuban refugee, she did not agree with “communism”) It dosen’t matter the person. A leader governing under any politics, communism, socialism, democratic, republic will never succeeded to fill the ideals of the public, no matter how charismatic. This is because they are human.

In true communism, no one man wants or owns more than any other and strength is placed with working class. This is agreeable. However, what makes communist fail constantly is nothing more than human nature. Greed and want are human. It's fine to want better for oneself. This is an instinct.
Don't tell me you have never wanted more than your fellow man? That you have never had dreams of making your art more than it is? You've never had dreams of fame and fortune. Tell me you've never in your 20 some odd years, once, wanted the newest game console, computer, the best clothing, or something material that feeds in to the money pot that is capitalism? Tell me that you are so righteous.... All of these wants are greedy and superficial on the surface....which is fine with me...my line of site is not obstructed by my own anus to see that I, my peers, you, every one is greedy sometimes. Which brings me back to my point... believing in a socialism utopia is fine, but you are diluting yourself more than you can imagine. Human nature is the achilleas heel of this dream.

Also, your art needs work, you recycle too many images...it becomes less a celebration when you do so, I was as bored as a kid in a carpet store. If you want to convert people you should have more pizzaz. ^_^


Kenzu responds:

I am no hypocrite. I believe in what I say. To those who support me, I show my gratitude, those who oppose I try to convince to be on our side, which means supporting democratic socialism.

If your mother is a Cuban refugee, you must understand that it is natural that you are so biased. Your views are shaped by your parents and the society you live in. I assume you live in USA, therefore it is natural for most people there to hate "the evil communism in Cuba". But Cuba isn't communist. Even they have never claimed to be communist. They are currently in a socialist dictatorship with a mixed economy (a mix of free market and a centrally planned economy).

You should also note that:
THERE NEVER WAS A COMMUNIST COUNTRY.
COMMUNISM NEVER FAILED!

What to do with people who disagree? Absolutely nothing. But if they go and kill someone, they will be sent to jail.

COMMUNISM: Not sure why people who don't like socialism always focus on communism. In communism you don't want to have more than others. You want all people to be wealthy, not just you. Communism is at least 100 years away. Therefore I assume you meant socialism.

I actually never wanted more than someone else. Why should I?

I'd like to become famous with my art. That's true. I have many dreams, but becomming rich isn't one of them. Why do you think a computer is capitalism? When I need something, I buy it. If I can't afford it I don't.

Greed isn't wanting to become rich. Greed is becoming rich at the cost of others. If I cannot own something I learn to accept it, I don't go and rob someone, or steal the thing I want.

Some examples of greedy behaviour are: Selling drugs, owning a casino, sex trafficking, employing slave labour and child workers, exploiting workers, removing political opponents...

PS: This movie isn't aimed at people who are against our ideal, but aimed at people who support socialism. That's why you don't like this movie that much. I enjoyed every second of it!

A question...

I don't recall Europe being a socialist government. Could you clarify this?


Kenzu responds:

European Parliament consists out of socialists, communists, greens and also some other boring parties.

I was not showing present EU, but a socialist EU in a close future after the left wing vastly outnumbers the other parties and the people vote for a socialist constitution in a European wide referendum.

Simple as that.
