    That communism can't be implemented. It would take a long time to convert a Capitalist country to Communism. All have made this mistake, and it always turns into the cluster ****s that we see today. Some are not even communism any more.

    Not a ****ing clue, again I'm still figuring it out, nor do I think I will ever succeed. But it's nice to give a worth while idea a second chance.

    I think most would disagree that Communism is a worthwhile idea.

    That's like asking which person do you want smashing your testicles with a hammer. Your nuts still get smashed, you can win no matter who you pick.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That's because people generally stop working on theories once they flame out in a spectacular fashion. No serious biologists have worked on the theories of creationism in many years...that doesn't mean they need to start now. Similarly, no serious economists have worked on theories of communism in many years, because the underlying premise is ridiculous and empirically false.

    Another biased comment.
    One leads inevitably to the other. Voting for Marxism is functionally the same as voting for Stalinism.
