Communism 101

“The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.” —Michelle Obama

Communism is an economic system, what you're speaking of is socialsm. Socialsm is a form of government in which the government provides the basic needs for all of its population through extensive taxing. Communism is an economic system utilized by some social governments, and is a command economy under which the government allocates all of the country's resources.

You're not going to convince those who support socialist agenda to think otherwise, so why even start this thread? I mean, for me personally, thanks for bringing this to my attention. +1 for Obama (points, not votes).

Why do you think it is bad?
WHat would be negative vs. positive things if we...for example had French Education and Healthcare systems?
I lived there, and in a few other places around, so I know the positives (and have discussed them before), tell us what you know... I lived here for 20 years and know the positives and negatives of our systems...

EDIT: Oh, and what do you know about COmmunism, please tell us... Or about Socialism?

I know that this country was built with free markets, limited government, and individual responsibility. That's what makes it so great, and I want to make sure it stays that way. What is the incentive to go out and make success for yourself in a socialist or communist economy? If I'm gonna make the same no matter what I do, I'm not going to do anything. Success should not be penalized. It should be encouraged!

Another proof (your comment) that either:
1) you're 16, living with your parents and completely not understanding what you posted
2) you have a brain capabilities of a 16-yo...

Anyway, thanks for clarifying those things for us so we don't waste much more time with you...

Communism is a great idea, it's the practicioners that mess it up. In a communist society, the motivation to "raise the bar" is that it gets raised for everyone, so success IS rewarded.

But with our short-sighted, NOW, NOW, NOW mentality we have a hard time waiting for the rewards of hard work and perserverance. Oh, and as the power climbs, the wielders get corrupted and the spoils do not get shared equitably.

Don't think of those socialist/communist governments that have received such bad raps, think smaller of the communes where everyone worked together, ate dinner together, and divided the labors according to skills. Even today, at 41, I still wish I could join a commune and live a happy, agrarian lifestyle.

Well fortunately for myself, I could care less what some stranger (who is a commie) on an internet forum thinks about me.

But yes I am proud of my success and I am self sufficient unlike yourself who needs the government to take care of you. Congrats!

Oh and btw, I like how you accuse ppl of being 16 and living with there parents when you don't care for there responses. I noticed you did this to someone else in another thread. Maybe get some new material eh?

I see...typical Bushie -- reading and commenting on what fits you the best...
You need to do much more reading, then come back...

Again -- do you know what communism is, or you've heard that word at your high school cafeteria?

Communism would work with representative government, as opposed to every previous and current implementation of it by a totalitarian party regime. And communism doesn't mean everyone gets an equal share, it means everyone gets equal minimum, and more depending on their value to the society. At least that's what the premise was in USSR.

So, again...you tell us you have no clue...
At 26, I knew much more than the basics... Another proof that you need much more than Gov't involved in your BASIC education...since you're showing that your level of education with BSME is lower than European highschooler...

Well it's proving to be more than sufficient to get me through life quite well so far. So I won't complain, but if you feel that it's not good enough for your children feel free to take them with you back home.
