    Yes I am a communist, and it's brilliant being here in sunny Cuba, smoking a fat Cuban cigar and drinking Cuban vodka - very hard to find as Cuba grows few potatoes.

    Humanity learnt a valuable lesson in anarchy - THE FRENCH REVOLUTION OF 1789. The French nobles and merchants were laid to waste by the Third Assembly, which in turn was backstabbed by Robisperre and his 'Reign of Terror'.
    The Rev. of '89 was also a breeding ground for ideas around democracy and communism - kind of ironic, isn't it?

    LONG LIVE THE SOVIETS (and the legacy of the French Revolution of 1789).
    Das Wasser soll dein Spiegel sein
    Erst wenn es glatt ist, wirst du sehen
    Wieviel Märchen dir noch bleibt
    und um Erlösung wirst du flehen.

    The water shall be your mirror
    Only when it's smooth you will see
    How much fairy-tale is left for you
    And you will beg for deliverance.

      How old are you exactly, Comrade?
      I'm just curious.
      Actually, I think that Democracy has nothing to do with Communism. Democracy is a political system and Communism an economic system.

        Hodad, I am 31 years old, and a member of the International Communist Party branch in New Zealand. So I do know what I'm talking about. I hope I have satisfied your curiosity.

        Communism was screwed up because of Americans hatred of Communism (except between 1941 and 1945), that and Stalin's dictatorship, the American backing of the Menshevik army (defeated by the Reds in 1920), following Britain's lead in politics in Europe, blah, blah, blah...

        LONG LIVE THE SOVIETS (and this thread).

          Ignore the message from Comrade Dan above, Hodad. I am 15 years old, male and a history fanatic - especially of 20th century history, which partly explainsmy intrest in communism and fascism.

            I think of Communism as more of a social system, and in their pure forms, Communism and Democracy have very similar ideals: equality, freedom, etc. Only Communism was more radical, but often true democracy sprung Communism in the 19th century.

              Brings back memories. Thanks for bringing that one up, TNapoleon.

                Do, Dover, the mighty walled Dover
                Re, of the razed cities blight
                Mi, the one that needs more sleep
                Fa, so far my armies march
                So, you want a treaty now
                La, the smell of Lauriacum
                Si, the Spanish acquiesce...
                :-)

                    Howitzers and railroads. I usually give my enemy railroad just so I can use them against him (I make sure to complete Darwin's first).

                    And of course the throne room. Some things don't really influence gameplay, but they should know better to take them out.

                      Is this archived? It should be.

                      Just thought I'd bump it for a new generation to enjoy.

                          Unbelievable. I thought Orcus had made a comeback for a second there.

                                Man, this thread is old (though actually "only" 3 years and 1 month)!!

                                And just like Derek I thought Orcus had made some comeback too...

                                By the way, this reminds me of something. A while ago I found out that Civ2 was in the IMDb... And April Cantor (the Foreign Advisor) apparently plays a minute part in the movie "What About Bob?" (with Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss). So all Foreign Advisor fans, get your asses to the local video store!
