Just for anyone who is curious, the "rule of thumb" thing has its real origin in the use of the width of the thumb as an approximation for an inch.
A stick that wide would be a weapon, not an instrument of discipline.
I recommend using a much thinner, more flexible stick for beating women... this creates an intense, stinging pain with very little actual damage. If you need to avoid leaving bruises, use a wire coat hanger that you have pulled straight into a doubled loop.
Also good for discipline without leaving marks are "stungun" devices sold for "self defense" (for which they are actually useless), and waterboarding, which requires only a pitcher and a washcloth, as well as some very good restraints.
Both, at different times.
What happens with communism is that first it doesn't work, then the people who are empowered by it (bureaucrats and so forth) don't want to admit that, so they find a scapegoat, and kill the scapegoat.
That's why communism kills people. It kills people BECAUSE it doesn't work, both by not working, and on purpose as scapegoats.
@Guy Inefficiency is the default. It's incredibly hard to figure out what the best way to get something done is, and even harder to actually get in a position to do it that way.
Even people who are trying really hard to get shit done end up wasting a lot of effort along the way.
Communists... well, that's just hopeless. They can't even grow enough food.
