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??????

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.
