  1. I didn't know old Monopoly was indoctrinating me to half life of pursuing paper moneys!

    Yes to projects and sharing wealth!

  2. Socialism is the biggest fraud of the 20 century. It still attracts people with lack of logical thinking. Just consider the following :
    1) land for peasants
    2) eliminate private property
    —————————————————
    would you buy it? They bought. When they realized that they were scammed It was already too late.

    They also realized that socialism is always totalitarianism since everything is controlled (own=control) by the state.

  3. if it was accurate it would have one player that would play the part of the socialist government. And then they can decide at any point to take all of the capital from specific industries forcing players to compete over smaller and smaller amounts of money and resources. Then the game ends when everything is taken over by the government and everyone just watches the that player make all the moves and decide who gets money and who doesn't. What i saw here is not socialism but what capitalists already do when they want to freely donate their money to good causes.

  4. They didn't pay money from the community fund to the bank to ride the bus. They took money from the bank and paid into the community fund. Follow the directions.

  5. Some truth…

    Global Capitalism today functions as to require continuous “growth” through the consumption of the finite natural environment. The vast majority of this wealth is then concentrated into the hands of very few individuals at the expense of the vast majority of people. The result is an unstoppable mechanism which is destroying civilization and the ecosystem for no justifiable benefit.

    In the context of the USA, it is disingenuous to vilify Socialism, when unrestrained Capitalism is currently an existential threat to that country and the planet. Most people would benefit from expanded socialist policies within the framework of a capitalism market, in the USA. The USA already has some socialist programs their population loves, but no one calls them “Socialist”. The wealthy capitalist interests (elite individuals and corporations) want to fool people to think it’s a black and white choice so reforms aren't implemented and they can continue hording this wealth at the expense of everything you know.

  6. Excellent idea and product Hasbro. Please do a Fascist one next. Who can rationalize an argument against the new socialist one.

  7. Love it monopoly trolling the liberal democrats with there most capitalist game creating a communist/socialist version #Maga Trump 2020

  8. Can you use EBT to buy this game ? What about a planned parenthood space ? These two were definitely ready for a humus sandwich at the end of this. All white players have to stop at the community "race guilt" center, and all LGBTQ -M-O-U-S-E players are allowed to go backwards on the board if that's how they "feel" that day. Bought a copy off ebay, sold out everywhere, MAGA 2020 .

  9. Socialism and communism are the same. North Korea call themselves socialist paradise, but was founded by communists. I don't know why she makes it sound like there's difference.

  10. Two critiques:
    1: donations to the community fund should be compulsory and each “donation” whenever you land on income tax is 70%
    2: the jail should be called the gulag.

  11. I hope Hasbro makes SO much money from this. Anyone who dares speak up against the Socialist, woke PC culture of the left should be commended for it.

  12. This game is amazing, and it's really sad that Hasbro was so quick to cave after a couple cry babies went on Twitter tirades. If you don't want to pay $100+ for a second-hand copy now that Hasbro has fear pulled it from stores, here's a link to a change.org petition for Hasbro to bring the game back so the market can decide whether or not its a success. http://chng.it/RJZyrgtYYR

  13. FFS now the commies have gotten into board games will come in handy for my fire on a cold night PLZ fk off leftist commie socialist idiots .

  14. There should be a communist version of it, too.
    Rules: you throw the dice and you move your peace. No matter where you land, there is a 30% chance you're sent to the gulag, another 30% chance you starve and a 30% chance you're assasinated by the KGB and a 10% chance that nothing happens. If you own any private property, you're instantly sent to the gulag.

  15. No socialism isn't cooperating cooperating is voluntary… You are forced to pay for stuff for other people by the government it's like me owning my own store and I have to pay protection money to my local gang members that's socialism

  16. Do they have chance card events where the state takes you to a reeducation centre for having counter-revolutionary ideas? ahaha

  17. You don't get it, what happens when the "community fund" drys up? Thats where the real game starts and it shows you how quickly leftist policy falls apart. There is a reason why democrat controlled cities are turning into crap filled, rat infested, disease ridden, over priced 3rd world living standard zones. There is causality.

    The problem with capitalism is that 1) it was meant to ideally be intranational in regards to free trade (meaning within a nation, rather than international), and 2) it has to be protected from cronyism (when the politicians and business are tied together where they can help themselves while squashing the competition).

    Cronyism and international socialism are literally destroying the very thing that worked and brought so many people out of poverty.
