Commy..Communist. often heard as an insult. Great hatred is shone upon people for their beliefs and many varied people are called communists regardless of their differences. Being called a communist in public is a great insult that can follow you forever..but why?
Im curious as to the national education about Communism. Real communism..
I've personally been called a communist frequently and when bringing up the true historic and literal meaning of communism even men who i once respected blow up into angry beasts. is their intelligence merely limited to the text books?
A few decades ago, even today.. people were fed false information about communists and many people fought a war against people they truly knew nothing about.
But.. Ill save that for later..
Rest assured i know the true meaning to communist. but I am more than curious as to what people truly believe..
please have respect for my post. This is a very important issue to me, so i want each of you to respect what each individual posts.. do not reply to the answers.. merely edit your own. After a short amount of time i'll post what I feel to be the true answer and then the topic will be open to debate, until then and hopefully even after.. keep this civil. its possible..
(oops posted without the question)
In your opinion
1. What exactly is a communist?
2. What is wrong with their beliefs? (why wont it work)
3. What defines a single man as a communist?
