The liberals won the propaganda war long ago, communism is even defined in many dictionaries as 'totalitarian state'. Just abandon the word and all labels imo. Instead be specific about your politics so no one can misconstrue what you stand for. e.g. I am anti-state and anti-capital.

This right here, unless someone else brings up the world communism, we shouldn't because the word has been poisoned. You can get someone to agree with every single point about communism, only to flip on what they claim to support if they are4 told that it was communism.

Sure debate the word, meaning, and history with people. But if they don't bring up the label, neither should you.
