    Why share your slice when everyone can have a piece of the pie? If some miss out, it's their own fault.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    oh trust me communal ownership of property would never work anywhere anytime anyplace anywho there just ain't no gol-darned way!

    Guess only me and 20 million other mind numbed robots are familiar with the speech that Rush Limbaugh gives every Thanksgiving about how the Pilgrims almost died because they originally had structured themselves around communal ownership of property and production.

    Because some people actually believe that someone else having a bigger piece than them is unfair, like you're taking it from them.

    It's one thing if the economy or wealth was zero-sum. It'd actually be like that. The problem is that it's not.

    It's an extremist view made to "fix" a nonextant problem.

    If you're under the impression that I'm a communist, you couldn't be further from the truth.

    I would say thats not ridiculous at all, since pretty much almost everything is political. I would say feeding the hungry, cloth the homeless, telling someone to get rid of all their belongs and give to the poor, being against greed and money in general is pretty "political".

    Re: Is communism possible in the USA?

    Communism is an excellent social organization for organisms that are very low on the evolutionary ladder and possessing very limited intelligence. Bees and ants are the obvious examples of successful communal social structures but we haven't any successful examples among higher life forms. I don't know what this says about the progressives who favor it, but I don't think it's a tribute to their intelligence.

    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
