As in any arbitrary system "designed" by people who's goal is equality, it won't work. Nature will always prevail and nature is simple and doesn't care about lofty words written in an attempt to sound intellectual or fair. Nature takes its opposition and rips it to shreds. Marxism is the opposite of nature, it's fairy tale.

Is it silly though? Let's say that half the people don't want to work, they just want to live off the system. The other half are hard working and so they get more stuff. Do the hard workers get food while the non-workers don't get food? In other words, if a large population was refusing to work, would they be allowed to starve while the hard workers got food? Is that equality or is equality achieved by making some people work hard, in order to allow those that refuse to work to survive? It can't be both ways and it surely has a precedence, since we see this sort of thing playing out all over the world.

I'm sure Mexico has no problem with Russians (white people) moving to Mexico and then illegal hiring only other Russian people to work there. They would have no problem with Russians colonizing their country and illegally discriminating against legal Mexican citizens. No newspaper would dare speak out about the poor Russians that were just trying to escape their oppressive homeland and make a place for their people in Mexico. Surely the Russian gangs that would form to protect this colonization effort against the Mexican people would not be discriminated against and deported, no those Russian warriors would be hidden by media and protected by kind hearted Mexican judges that would want to protect those Russians and help them prosper in Mexico. Eventually the Mexican people and politicians would gloat over how great it was that the Russians were outnumbering the Mexicans and that Mexicans would be a minority in their own country, as if any land was any people's country to begin with.

Does anyone know specifically what Trump is talking about, cause the article only tells us what Trump said and that he was "tossing out paper towels". Isn't MSN.com a capitalist organization? We should really be trying to get information from non-biased sources, not giant corporations. I just want to know what he did there and what his remarks were in regards to. I though he brought in the military to help distribute supplies that were being kept from the people by a corrupt Puerto Rico political system. The dock workers and the truckers were not allowed to do their job and normal citizens were trying to organize themselves so that they could do their own relief effort and were stopped. That's when the military was sent in, to prevent the Puerto Rico government from killing it's own people as a protest against Trump. It's really a terrible situation.

He's basically proposing 4,000,000-euro tax cuts for the wealthiest ten percent, while also at the same scrapping housing aid to all students, taking away five euro per student. It's symbolic, but it's important. People are very angry by this.

I'd say that has nothing to do with political ideology. It is the opposite of what both conservatives and progressives want. This guy is beholden to his masters that run the Bank for International Settlements, just like every other puppet leader.

After reading the article, I'm wondering what human rights have to do with Social Justice. The writer holds up several straw man arguments to make a point, but there is no talk about day to day life. There seems to be an obsession with grand talk about kings and serfs, but what about the average day under model communism? How are average people's problems dealt with, once the perfect communist system is in place.

Let's say James is a big strong worker, smart and good looking. Carlos is small, weak and not so easy on the eyes. James and Carlos work the same plot of land as farmers and live in the same communal housing project. James works half as hard as Carlos and still outputs twice as much product. James has his pick of the women, while Carlos has to take whatever is left-over. Both James and Carlos live in a communal housing project, where nobody is allowed to make their homes better, by using their labor to improve their own situation over any other person. Carlos and others like him have shoddy looking abodes, they can't figure out how to fix stuff and don't have the physical strength to keep their place as nice as James and his peers. Carlos claims that James is oppressing him and demands that James come clean his place too and fix stuff. Is Carlos told to fuck off by perfect communism, to reap what he sows, or is James forced to labor for free so that Carlos can pretend to be like James?

Does that mean there are no leaders, because leadership implies power and that power could then be abused if the leader had enough people following them. What kinds of laws would there be to stop people from killing each other and saying that the reason they did so was to stop the other person from gaining too much power? Where is the objectivity in that? Are there laws in communism that prevent others from having and exerting power? If so then who enforces those laws, who is the expert on those laws that gets the final say. Is it the least common denominator or is it whatever opinion is the most popular, is there a vote?

Under communism, wouldn't there be protestors as well? Eventually somebody's kid would not like the so-called "perfect" world their parents built and would want to wear Nikes or eat McDonald's. Would they be allowed to sow discord and form groups to speak out against the system that, in their minds, is oppressing them? Would those protesters be arrested? Would communism be enforced/forced on the younger generations that don't always understand why things are the way they are? If so, what are the details of that? What does that look like?

How does one remove those concepts from people's minds though? Would people be punished for illegally creating their own power hierarchies, after real communism has been realized. I'm talking about enforcing it after it is has been perfectly achieved. What does that look like? Who's job is it to enforce the laws and do they not have more power than the others?

If capitalism were to be destroyed and the model communism realized, do you think people would make their own McDonalds to recreate that old-fashioned feeling? How many years would it be before, even the die-hard communists, gave up all nostalgia about products they loved? Products that were only made possible by capitalism, might become even more obsessed over. Would there be a movement to stop people from making fake Nike clothes or other potential symbols of capitalism? I can see it spinning out of control. Generations after model communism is achieved, young people are fighting the old communists, because they think it's unfair that they can't start their own business, hire employees and have the ability to store their labor as a some sort of sovereign money.

How does communism have the power to transform people from self serving idiots, criminals and power hungry psychopaths to good, caring people that would join together to take care of retirees? It seems like most of our problems today are social problems, does communism have anything to do with that, or is that separate. If separate then wouldn't those problems have to be solved first, in order to bring about this model society where we all take care of each other?

Are you really embarrassed or is that just something you learned to say? If you're American and embarrassed by your fellow Americans because of their personal beliefs, then it's safe to say that you feel superior to others, that you think you are better somehow. If not, then why embarrassed, why not frustrated or sad? There is a certain amount of disdain implied with saying you are embarrassed by people you don't know and who probably don't care about you or what you think. In your marxist fantasy, you stand high on a peak alone, a beacon of equality placed above all others.
