    Bully likes to talk about how moral systems should be judged according to their effects "here, in this world".

    OK.
    The globalization movement has raised standards of living throughout the world, providing more goods for more people than any other system. Socialism and income redistribution stop societies from progressing as the reward for innovation in any realm is removed. Planned economies have no history of working. They fail.

    Also check out this site in case your thinking communism is anything other than evil.

    At least the commies protected thier people by getting rid of the "religious" people who say we're all going hell unless we think like they do. I'm sure this wasnt the intention but a pleasant result of the great social experiment of thiers.

    Actually this succeeded only, as in almost all cases of persecution, to actually promote religion in the area. Russian Orthodoxy has a definitive lead over other religion, but most people in Russia are not atheist.

    Sure, because it's much better to have people in charge who will shoot you for treason for showing up late to work too often than to have people telling you you're going to hell.
