    Why do I dislike communism? Forced sharing. You would force me to share my wealth, assets, and property with others, weather I like it or not.

    I think that communism doesnt' work because it does not take into account the principle of self-interest, while capitalism is seemingly based on it.

    I rather like it, Marxism is a speciality subject of mine. I wouldn't describe myself as either, but I do have a lot of time for theoreticall Communism....

    Yes because there are people just a couple of blocks away from you starving, while you're eating gourmet meals.

    The closest we've come to Communism/Anarchism, in my opinion would be the Paris Commune.

    I don't know, I've read some Marx and I have to say I haven't been sold yet. I'm okay with socialistic ideas, but I don't like Communism because it doesn't respect individuality, and authoritarian regimes corrupt easily.

    We don't have authotarian regimes in Communism. We don't even have regimes. Why do you say Communism does not respect induviduality? I've never liked Marx, either. I've never understood a word that he wrote, but when I read Lenin, everything changed. From the FIRST WORD I READ, I falled completely into his logic... He explains it so easy, and yet so brilliant. He's a genious.

    What I liked about Lenin was his free spirited approach to mass execution and his ability to see the lighter side of famine.

    Now as to communism in general, what i don't like is that fact that it has failed every single time it has ever been tried, in nearly all cases catastrophically so, yet people keep coming back and saying "No, no, no, not THAT communism, my new super-neo-quasi-green-anarcho-castro-beardist-communism, which is going to work so much better!" And I say yep, that's what the last theoretical utopia peddling mass murderers said too, and thanks but not thanks.

    Supporting communism is no better than supporting Nazis, although communists killed more people.

    Thanks for asking though.

    That probably wasn't supposed to be funny, but it made me laugh like hell.

    Would you like it better we all starve and the communist elite get gourmet meals or would you like us to all more or less have the opportunity to either starve or get gourmet meals.

    One of the main reasons communism always fails is because once a country becomes communist, America and all it's greedy capitalist friends get their panties in a tangle and freak out, then send all their army over to the country and stop communism from working, its not all the system that fucks it up, it's the sorrounding countries doing anything they can to contain communism and stop it from spreading.

    Peace and Love,

    How do you know what fucking meals I eat? Do you have any idea what my family's income is? No, you don't. Instead of imposing your selfish views on the rest of us, why don't you give your own and leave my assets, property, and wealth alone, it's not yours or anyone else's. That is called stealing.

    so, if communism were to spread, it wouldn't corrupt or fall to pieces?

    Well the fastest growing economy in the world, China, is still a communist country. And although it has privatized a large sector of its economy, a very sizeable portion, amounting to more then half the work force are still employed by either state-run or state-guided collectives. India follows a very similar economic mode and is currently the 2nd fastest growing economy in the world. Appearantly industries that are natural monopolies (health care, oil, military, etc) are most effeciently run by the government. And other types of state run industries can still directly benefit the private sector through price-fixing and other types of centralized planning. I know this isn't exactly what Marx intended, but this is the what communism/socialism is becoming, and amazingly enough, its working.

    It's socialism Floyder, not communism.

    Communist elite??! Lol, where the hell are you getting this from? There is NO communist elite in a communist society! That's the whole fucking point! :D

    This may be a shock but China is not the fastest growing economy in the world because its state owned industries are doing so well. It is the fastest growing economy DESPITE the drag produced by useless white elephant state industries.
