Communism gives the government the ultimate control over its body of people. The government in a communist state believe that it can take better care of its people then the people can take care of themselves. FALSE.
According to the Communist Manifesto
Communism has ten essential planks:
Abolition of Private Property.
Heavy Progressive Income Tax.
Abolition of Rights of Inheritance.
Confiscation of Property Rights.
Government Ownership of Communication and Transportation.
Government Ownership of Factories and Agriculture.
Government Control of Labor.
Corporate Farms and Regional Planning.
Government Control of Education.
Communist economics requires people to work for the desire to produce for use rather than profit. Under this system a person has no motive to work harder and therefore increase economic output by the metaphorical, but some times far too literal, gun pointed at their head. Nothing good as ever come out of communism. If anything, only bad has come out of it. Most communist states have a radical leader hell bent on money and power, and doesn't care how much suffering he puts his people in (i.e. stalin). But if the government owns literally everything, who is there to stop them from giving back to the people. NO ONE. Communism is a idea that works in theory, but never in real life. There will always be greed and power hungry fucker's on the top.
Besides the point, in a communist state, you own nothing, everything you have the government has. With no strive to become better, why the fuck even try? I can't remember the book I read it in, (trying to find to back up data), when they took the wall down that separated east and west germany, it was like going back into time, and this goes the same of Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union. Because because the government literally sucked the wealth out of the land and its people, there was no room for improvement. They were still driving cars from the 40s, there fashion was from even earlier.
Communism takes every single person and puts them in the same class, everyone is equal, every has the same amount of money, same government healthcare, same everything. Again, if everyone is the same, going to be the same, and cannot make any financial gain, wtf is the point of even existing? The communist Utopia is a dream, A FREAKING DREAM. It cannot, and will not succeed. Anyone who believes in communism is a drone. A DRONE. If anything, some one who follows communism should move into jail. It is about as close as any human can get to the communism Utopia.
The first step in communism is the governments full control of society, to the point where it mandates what we can and cannot do in our everyday lives. If you think about it, name one thing the government has no control or say in. Really try it. Now they are trying to sink their claws even deeper into our society. Government ran healthcare? It is just another step to take. With our new administration already boarder line socialist, how much longer till we are boarder line communist? With the way our country is going, not to far.
American capitalism gone"
