Quite an interesting read. We have to understand that we have the benefit of hindsight. The society at that time cannot help but breed this kind of dogma or variant of it.

What some people fail to realize is that communism has been tried over and over and has failed. Without any sort of government revenue just take and distribute, take and distribute. Where is the revenue? Who is working? Steal from whom??????

Always interesting to hear another point of view.

Marx's communism works as a thought exercise, but fails to realize that people are inherently greedy, which capitalism takes into account, and in fact rewards.

It is hard to understand and not for the average Avery. Get something more simple.

Communism sounds great.... If you have no basic knowledge of human psychology. The idea that everything you earn or do is community property leads to an incentive for mediocrity. Problem is when mediocrity is the highest achievement everyone loses as in every communist nation that ever existed.
