i dont think that the smurfs are communists, they just have not learned the SELFISHNESS AND BETRAYAL of the human world. they are fine with thier own ways of society and do not see a reason why they should act so horrible. and what would be wrong with communism? im not a communist, but that sounds like a perfect society to me! as long as everyone does their part, everything would run smoothly.

anyway, stay smurfy my friends

An article from Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington is quite interesting and is worth repeating:

The Smurfs as a Paradigm for Communist Society

The Smurfs are a what? Thats right I said the Smurfs are a model of how a Communist society should operate. What am I talking about you may ask? Very well then I shall explain.

The TV show "The Smurfs" provided youngsters like myself hours of entertainment as a child, but what I am now fianlly realizing is that the Smrufs were actually a well devised piece of Communist propaganda to erode American sociey from within. What follows is a list of evidence supporting my accusations:

1. Have you ever notice how much Papa Smurf looks like Karl Marx? Could this be a subtle attempt to get young children used to the sight of the Father of Modern Communism (in Soviet Russia, large posters depicting Karl Marx were carried in parades celebrating Communism.

2. As well notice that Papa Smurf wears red pants, red being the color of revolution, and of the Bolshiveck party. It is also intereting to note that while Papa Smurf wears red all of the other Smurfs wore white. In the 1918 revolution which resulted in the replacement of the Czarist government by the Communist party, there were two Communist factions battling for control, the reds (Bolshivek) and the whites(The actual name escapes me). In the end the Bolshievecks won and became the ruling class in Communist Russia. Is it not an odd coincidence that Papa Smurf, the ruling member of the Smurf community, wears red while the others all wear white.

3. A fundemental therom of Marx's Scientific Socialism as stated in the Communist Manifesto is something to the point of "from each his ability and to each his needs". Take note that each Smurf does the job that he/she is suited for i.e. Farmer grows the Smurfberries, and Baker bakes all of the Smurfberry pies. Yet all of the Smurfs get all that they need. In fact the Smurfs do not use money or even bother to barter.

4. The Smurfs were not alone in their world. You may ask how Gargamel fits into this model. Well, Communism is not alone in the world either. Indeed there are forces out there that seek to exploit the proleteraite for personal gain. The name of this evil is Capatalism. The system by which a few select bourgiaosie control all of the capital and attempt to exploit the working class for personal gain. Well, this is how Gargamel fits into this model. Gargamel represents the Capitalist bourgiaosie attempting to exploit the proletariate smurfs for personal gain. But wait you say wasn't Gargamel just trying to eat the Smurfs? You obviously didn't watch the show too well. In most every case Gargamel was trying to catch Smurfs because they were ingredients in his latest spell to create or turn something into gold. So it is evident that Gargamel is the representation of the materialistic drive behind Capitalism, to increase capital at any cost.

5. Finally there was Azrael, Gargamel's cat. This scragely old cat fits into the model as well. Azrael represents the third world despotisms that are clinging onto the coattails of first world capatalistic nations trying to grab any scraps they can. In the show Azrael followed Gargamel around trying to catch a stray Smurf or two for a meal.

I think these five points provide very strong evidence pointing to the conclusion that the TV show "The Smurfs" is indeed a paradigm for Communist society.

I don't think so! You see, according to Taoist, there was a time where human kind was in harmony with nature and the hunting of animals for food of "sport" is unthinkable! The Smurfs' lifestyle is similar to that! In other words: Smurfs are Taoist! Ever think about that?

I'm not just smart but I love that true wisdom comes from the heart not from age and intelligents. In other words: Papa Smurf isn't wise because of his age and intelligents but because of his heart.

I think it is sad that people think the smurfs are communists. They are innocent, magical creatures, but it seems like people try to find any excuse to criticize the them. The smurfs most certainly are not communists!

Some of you may not believe me. Well, you see, communists don't believe in God and they have no religion. Many people think the smurfs have no religion, but in reality it just seems that way because Peyo decided not to mention anything related to Christianity or another religion in his comic books; and most comic books don't mention any religion. You might still be thinking the smurf are atheists, as I haven't really provided any evidence yet to prove that theory wrong. Now, as you probably already know, The Smurfs comic books and the television series are set in the Middle Ages. And in the Middle Ages, atheism wasn't in existence yet. In fact, until modern times, everyone believed in God or at least worshipped someone or something. It would have been considered ridiculous for someone to say there was no God. The Smurfs is probably set in Europe. In Europe during the Middle Ages, the main religion was Catholicism, while some people were Jews. Catholicism and Judaism were basically the only religions in Medieval Europe. We know that the smurfs are not Jewish, because they celebrate Christmas, not Hanukkah. Therefore, the smurfs are Catholic! So they couldn't possibly Communist.

The smurfs are not Communist/Socialist, they are an example of Utopia. Smurfs being Communist is just a funny conspiracy theory (one of my favorite jokes actually).

Don't forget about the other bad theories like the Smurfs being satanic, Neo-Nazis or KKK!

Speaking of the KKK, my latest EMPATH: The Luckiest Smurf story "Polaris' Smurfy New Life" has Hefty forming The Order Of The True Smurfs to deal with people like Empath's friend Polaris Psyche, which only ends up having a few members in it and was quickly dissolved.

Really, you had Hefty form the Smurf KKK. He was a jerk sometimes but that's sorta uncharacteristic.

Not OOC according to his characterization throughout the Empath series. He has no love for telepaths, and particularly doesn't like Empath or Polaris Psyche.
