    There is nothing to discuss. Communism grew out of the failure of capitalism to provide for all citizens a decent standard of living. Philosophically, or in the area of intellectual ideas, it came from a time and conception that progress moved towards some utopia. Marx and Engels recognized society could not forever operate in a social Darwinist world of dog eat dog, but thought wrongly (a bit correctly) that society would move towards a just society. They, of course, did not recognize the force of power, entrenched interests, corporate power, a way to resolve disagreement, and the basic greed and stupidity of peoplekind.

    But if you can compare them, then you can compare anything and thus anything can mean anything and anything be anything. But that gets you (us) nowhere.


    "The Democratic Party is committed to keeping our nation safe and expanding opportunity for every American. That commitment is reflected in an agenda that emphasizes the strong economic growth, affordable health care for all Americans, retirement security, open, honest and accountable government, and securing our nation while protecting our civil rights and liberties."

    "The Communist Manifesto is too long to be a concise declaration of principles and too short to be a book. It is composed of about 17,000 words including various introductions by Friedrich Engels.

    It is arranged, basically, in four sections. The first section introduces the Marxian idea of history as a class struggle. It juxtaposes the conditions and development of various strata of society, "freeman and slave, patrician and plebian, lord and serf...in a word, oppressor and oppressed." It hypothesizes how the development of each of these in history gave rise to the next step in an inevitable historical process culminating ultimately in the rise of one working class."

    There are ten easily read and understood planks to the Communist Manifesto, obfuscatasaurus rex.

    Communist Manifesto - All Ten Planks ... In America!!!

    They're being enacted and enforced, to greater or lesser extents, by BOTH the remocrats and depublicans.

    The only discernible difference is that one party wants to take the Interstate freeway on the road to serfdom, while the other party is content with taking the two-lane scenic route.

    Actually if you read some of the Hegallian philosophy you would see that none of them talked about the best way to feed the world. Most of it was how to perfect mankind and remove all indivdualism from them. The progressives, fascist, communist all got their ideas from these german philosophers. Every single one of them hated capitalism, thought the state was supreme to any individual's needs, and had a not so healthy spirituality around the collective.

    Actually, you would do better comparing the Tea Party platform to classic Fascism.

    And we'd do equally well comparing you with a sack of potting soil.

    So, what's your point?

    Another 'flame' thread that could be discussion but adds nothing to our knowledge or the conversation.

    The Far Left within the DNC are more democratic socialists than communists.
