MercynRe please stop locking me in a box all by myself - why do you tell me what to think and if i'm not a capitalist you label me as a dangerous "subversive" when really all i am trying to do is find a new way around these problems... 010427

reitoei communism is idealism to the extreme. its for people who think "why can't we all get along" has an answer. actually it does. humans are imperfect and will never cooperate. aristotle asked if man was good or evil. man is evil. even if 99% of the population gets along and cooperates the one percent will bring everything crumbling down. the only way communism is possible is through psych screening and selective births. but then you have Huxley or Orwell's nightmare-which might not be so bad. I'm socialist by the way. 020216

erin. i have
two hours
to write
a paper
on communism.

two hours,
a deadline
i set for myself--
a falsely set time
so that
i might
go swimming
this morning.

if my paper
were the property
of the people,
someone else
wouldn't mind
taking over
where i left off,
for the greater good
of me.

but there are no communists
to write my paper
about communism
for me.

thus, i consult my sources--
which are lacking
in more ways than one--
and hope that i
might be able
to crank out
5-7 pages
of acceptable drivel
before the sun has risen.
Black Argonaut this may shock most of the world:

a large portion of the Constitution of the United States (God bless America) is based on communistic ideas. No, that doesn't mean Lenin and Stalin's communism where everyone works and they get rich. It is the principle of communism where every citizen has an equal chance for betterment and every citizen works for the betterment of the nation/fellow citizens. You learn somthing new every day.

I love college.

Strideo "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need."

What a load of crap. People who think you aren't entitled to keep what you earn should either grow up or get over their jealousy. Its just wild idealism based on a bad idea not a good one.

Smurf Ahh Fine, I'll say something usefull. You're all going about this the wrong way. Seek not to compare communism with capitalism, but isolate them in their own forms and then see the advantages and disadvantages of each.
This does not mean immagine their idol state, this means immagine their probable state, without predujice of current events.
