One of my readers got upset the other day when I linked an article that contained some worthwhile information, but also had a paragraph of childish, selfish, hate-filled, anti-capitalism and pro-communist bull sh_t. I fully understand his concern. It got me to thinking about how I would describe communism in a nutshell. The average proponent of communism HAS NEVER LIVED UNDER IT, and thus is ignorant of how it really plays out, and of the horrors that it perpetrates on the people who are forced to live under it. Knowing that American schools mostly turn out idiots these days, I knew it had to be dumbed-down for many of those under 40 to be able to understand (not that they're actually READING anything anyway). As a result, I came up with the definition of communism below:
"Communism - an oppressive, atheistic form of government proposed by jealous, small-minded people who are too lazy to work for a living, and are too cowardly to do their own stealing."
It's a somewhat juvenile definition, but remember that I wanted to make it understandable to those educated in the last quarter-century or so. © 2013
