Reject Voices Warning of Tyranny by iMaksim Reject Voices Warning of Tyranny by iMaksim
PoasterChild [link] is on a campaign [link] to deny free speech rights to dA users that he finds offensive. From what I've seen they are a bunch of despicable Nazis, however this fact only makes PoasterChild's crusade ironically and hypocritally fascistic, instead of simply fascistic.

I urge all who love freedom to reject PoasterChild's 1984 like campaign. I don't trust or need anyone to decide for me what opinions I should be exposed to. Do you?

I'm only posting this comment here because PoasterChild deleted my comments and blocked me from his dA pages.... and I'm not even a Nazi. Makes me wonder whose political views will he try to stamp out next.

You should learn about fascism first, before you compare Obama to Hitler. You should rather compare him to comunism, if you must.

That's an excellent point. A lot of people don't know that Communism and Fascism aren't on the same side of the left/right spectrum. One is liberal, the other is conservative. They're similar because they're both authoritarian and anti-libertarian, not because they're both liberals.

Though it is somewhat understandable: a lot of liberals do lean to the authoritarian side of things.

I wouldn't consider communism as liberal either.
Starting with economic liberalism, communism is completely against it. Communism means planned state economy, the opposite to economic liberalism. Each attempt to establish a true communist economic system was accompanied with lack of good and poor quality.
And if you look at political liberalism, it doesn't look any better. The base of communism is the dictatorship of the proletariat. Usually this means a one party system, even if the ruling communist party uses other parties as a cover up, as they control these parties. To ensure this rule, a communist system uses methods of a police state: A secret police spying on the population, a repressive system.

And that's what communism and fascism have in common: One party rule, abolishment of basic rights, a police state.

The economic liberalism you're describing sounds more like classic liberals, otherwise known as modern conservatives. Modern liberals tend to wax authoritarian, though not nearly as much as communism or socialism

I'm from Germany and we had a taste of both totalitarian systems. I depise both.

Personally, I wouldn't call Obama a communist (thus I wrote "call him a commie, if you MUST."). In Germany we have a state healthcare system since the late 19th century. And it was a cornerstone of the west-german economic system of social market economy. The big economic success in the 1950s and early 1960 was party based on this system. Our state health care system helped our medical care in general, making it one of the best in the world.
That was until neo-liberals changed our economy about 10 years ago. Now, if you have money and can afford a private health insurance, you're well off. If you only have the state insurance, you have to spent hours waiting when visiting a doctor. But I guess that's still better than not being able to afford medical care at all.

Thing is, that same healthcare that works in Germany doesn't work here. That's just the way it is; things that work in other countries don't necessarily work everywhere. That's kinda the reason why the USA has been (more or less) prosperous since our country was born 200 years ago and the EU is flailing and failing whilst attempting to set up the same system.

The US of A was founded to be in perpetual resistance to the forces of tyranny. Apparently some weed-smoking Ivy League students, like our current President, missed that lesson.

Without intent to agree or disagree with the part of this post about PoasrerChild, I'd say two things.

One, this is my all-time favorite Obama poster.  It's the best "shadow tells the story" graphic I've ever seen.

Two, I've been blocked by everything from American Indian Braves to Fairy Princesses since I joined ControversyInc,  Blocking a person who is in disagreement with you in ControversyInc seems pretty lame to me, since airing disagreement is what the group is all about.

I have never understood :iconpoasterchild: , this guy is acting as if he took dose of LSD that would have killed a horse:

1) he complaints when "people steal his works", while the pictures he is posting are photoshopped propaganda posters not drawn by him. Proofs: his journal [link] and his entire gallery. His attitude can be simplified into short sentence: "When he robs people - it is good, but when people rob him - it is bad." Double standard indeed;

2) as for person, who fights against hatred, he is very baleful and prejudiced to my nation. Proof [link] . Moreover, he is calling to make riots and useless violence [link]

3) please have a look at his journals, even this one [link] - :iconpoasterchild: considers himself as socialist anarchist, a person who should believe in freedom of speech. Hiding comments is not an aspect of freedom of speech, in fact, it is limiting of the freedom of speech. So our friend claims the best way of being unlimited is to limit others. :lol:

4) last but not least, he keeps providing lied information, mainly about outdated equipment [link] and [link] , where he blocked me without reason.


How can anyone sane agree with him, since he treats people like trash ?

PoasterChild is.. essentially, a child. He's not interested in discussions or debate, or an exchange of opinions or learning facts, or even discuss the facts necessary to formulate a solid opinion. He's just an opinionated child that likes to throw tantrums and force his way.

I managed to get blocked by him for simply favving some of his images - images I agreed with. I think that says everything that needs to be said about his character.

Hypocrisy and oppression in the guise of "humanism" is a classic tactic of liberals and marxists, or anti-whites in general. It's just that PoasterChild turns that dial up to 11.

I think we can all agree that freedom of speech is a necessity for any kind of progressive development, whether it's economical, political or social. PoasterChild is a reactionary pretending to be a revolutionary. It's kinda cute, actually, considering that the amount of original work he's done is somewhere between none and zero, rehashing propaganda of yesteryear to suit him.

And all of this coming from somebody who openly declares hatred against a group of people because they're non-white, or Jews, or gypsies etc. Here's something for you to think about - nazis are pussies. Whenever they feel threatened in ANY way their answer is violence and to subjugate others. Discussion? Debate? Hah!

15, 20 years ago one of your kind tried to rape my friend's sister. He and his buddies got a lesson to remember for the rest of their life and I'm sure they remember it quite often when weather changes - especially in their bones and when they look in the mirror.

Nazis, KKK, any supremacist group is a bunch of retards that didn't evolve enough to be called intelligent human beings. This is not about politics, it is about spreading hatred and bigotry through politics and expecting that people will be tolerant.

Sorry, but no. I might be tolerant, but idiot I'm not.

It's funny that you'd accuse me of "openly declaring hatred against a group of people", when I have never done any such thing. To say that our answer is "violence and to subjugate others" is laughable, in context, when it is historically the opposite in almost every regard.

Whomever tried to rape your friend's sister, he was hardly "my kind"; anyone that knows anything - even those that can pretend to know when in truth they know very little - know that rape is one of the most despised crimes amongst nationalists and national-socialists. I'm not sure why I'm even defending myself against a baseless ad hominem-by-proxy, amounting to basically a strawman of proportions, but take it for what it is. I doubt someone as you had the fortitude and backbone to do what you claim to have done, but if you did, all the better - I know people that have cut fingers of people for lesser offences in the same vein.

The only one acting hateful here is you, and the only bigot is, as well, you - bunching many disparate and unassociated groups into one big "I don't like X"-group for convenience.

You're not tolerant; you're a hypocrite. And what's worse, you know that you're a hypocrite. You know I'm right, and it frustrates you to no end. I pity you and whatever syntax error is going on in your head, crossed wires and shortages. I can only hope that you one day take the time to sit down and educate yourself on the wide range of subjects anyone would need to form any semblance of coherent world-view - and thus, be able to criticize the world-view of others in an adequate manner.

I completely agree with you. I am ardently opposed to Nazism. However, I find it equally oppressive to squash the neo-Nazi voice. It will just be a matter of time till my own voice is found offensive and I too am banned.

The real question is, who gets to decide what is offensive? I posted on my personal Facebook page a few days a statement in regards to an article about Facebook possibly banning such groups. It went like this:

"Hate speech is all about perspective. What is hate speech to one person/group is not hate speech to another. So who gets to decide what defines "hate speech"?

I despise efforts to curtail hate speech - even if it is "hate speech" against those things I believe in and cherish. That said, Facebook is a private enterprise and if they want to do this, they are within their rights to do it I suppose."

Ultimately then it comes down to what the Roman poet, Juvenal, said in the first century, "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes" (Satire VI, lines 347–8). Translated, "Who will guard the guards themselves?" As we know, power corrupts (John Dalberg-Acton). This guy, *poasterchild, doesn't even see the irony in what he is doing. I would *much* rather know who the Nazis are so I can deal with them in the open. Permit them to show their stupidity openly. If you shut them down, who is next? Those who post things against abortion? homosexuality? Islam? Christianity? I'm reminded of the German preacher Martin Niemöller and his famous statement, "First they came..." ([link]. The road to hell is paved with good intentions and that is the problem with many governments and social movements. They have good intentions but those intentions have many unintended consequences.

I've gone on too long. This is a sore point with me and one I preach to my students all the time - the curtailment of ANY free speech is the curtailment of ALL free speech. Which brings me to another point, a quick one...*poasterchild speaks of a "free marketplace of ideas" which he really doesn't believe. If he did, he would permit opposing viewpoints on his things and then he would be forced to defend them. Apparently, he can't do so. Additionally, he would permit opposing viewpoints, however idiotic and stupid and hateful they may seem, on DeviantArt and either ignore them or force them to defend their ideas. I would propose that *poasterchild can't defend or attack ideas perhaps because he lacks the logic to do so. He just wants to force his ideas on others. Pathetic.

" I am ardently opposed to Nazism. However, I find it equally oppressive to squash the neo-Nazi voice."

Any "voice" that calls for hatred and bigotry against a group of people based on their skin color, religion etc should be banned from human culture.

Hate speech is hate speech, regardless how you try to mask it. It is quite easy to distinguish - it says that people of black skin are born to be slaves, that women shouldn't vote, that Jews killed J.C. and should be all killed in return etc. It is a voice of those who can only feel good about themselves when they make somebody else miserable. As such, it should be banned using different means, one of which is to make these people understand how wrong they are. But to allow it to spread and contaminate others? You need to be an utter fool to allow that!
