    But there is "one so blind that he cannot see."
    And there is an infinite number of shades of gray...until one crosses over and becomes an extremeist....either religious, communist or Nazi.

    Its too difficult for a true/deep thinker to be authoritarian...Which is why I am an independent....as much as I support liberalism.

    Yes there is, even in out own nation, there are some communist communities, also in India, as I recall....Our own Amish have many communist traits...
    But as true communism is voluntary, it will never grow, particularly in our conservative nation.

    10% of the industrial output of Israel comes from Kibbutz/communes. They are entirely voluntary in a country not famed for it's leftwing persona.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Well that's interesting.

    I have a question.

    Should we judge socialism by what socialism does?

    If countless people have died under the efforts of applying socialism/communism, shouldn't we judge such theories by what happens when they're applied?

    are you willing to apply that same standard to ALL political & economic philosophies, or just Communism & Socialism?

    Are you kidding? The state of Israel was founded and built by Jewish immigrants with very strong socialist tendencies. This is not controversial at all.

    They referred to themselves as "national socialists", and have also been called "fascist"... one term suggests the left, the other suggests the right.

    Frankly, the Nazi's were statist thugs, expansionist imperialists, and mass-murderers, and that's good enough definition for me. I don't think trying to claim they were tied to modern liberalism or modern conservatism is productive or accurate.
    I agree with this statement
