[had to repost..for some reason it put it as a print when I never clicked it]
This is yet another thing made randomly.
On another site I was on, I was conversing with a friend about conservatives and then I remembered a few weeks ago debating a conservative who called me a commie for wishing for a properly funded education system and universal health care… and then he said I was “an arrogant communist who is selfish” … while I have said many times that I am no communist, yet not being a communist does not mean I am anti-communist. I consider myself a liberal, progressive, and democratic socialist [not democrat]. Yet this idea that communists are greedy and selfish did make me laugh.
I have traveled around America, and to several countries.
In America the closest things I have found to “communists” are people who live by its root word or the type of lifestyle I have been to are communes which.. believe it or not there are several communal type communities in America, it is as you might expect, everyone having their job in the community, sometimes they rotate jobs, etc and each doing what is best for the group as a whole.
When writing this it made me think there is a lot we can learn from these people… and I hear from Africans as well [Africa is the only continent I have never been on but in a year or so I plan to travel across the entire continent] and there is very little waste that goes on in these societies, this is one of the things I most appreciated. … if we look in America, the amount of things we waste that could be reused, …or at the very least recycled etc…
While I am sure my stalker on here who thinks all liberals are communists anyway will look at this and say I KNEW IT *snickers* As I have said many times, I am for equal opportunity, not equal share.
Any student of history knows that there is nothing new about communism, its origins in fact traces back thousands of years to communal style areas where everyone had a task, generally these people were very simple in lifestyle, … though in a way, you can see similar things to the Amish people of today and past…

My influence map, I enjoy the written and oral accounts of the views of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Trotsky. I much prefer Trotsky and am no fan of Stalin, but to each, their own.
I will stop here because… there is no one type of communism. You have some Christian communist who believe that their bible tells them [which technically it does] to live a simple existence and to help others … and to not put too much power into money and material possessions… then you have some who take a more Marxian view of religion being an opiate of the people which stops them from helping others because if they simply believe that the “next life” is better, that serves as a reason for SOME, not all, to take more of an apathetic view while on earth.
…waits for the trolls, or usual YOU ARE EVIL!! Conservatives to comment .. or send me lovely “you should die” private messages” ..

As always comrades,
Let knowledge be that truth, which portrays humanity, condemns malevolence; that respects the differences in others while abandoning the hatred and misconceptions of the past.
