    "Congratulations, you're destroying the capitalist system! While everybody else in the world is embracing it, my boys and girls are fucking it up. You know what happens when capitalism gets fucked up? The communists come back! They come out of the bushes, don't kid yourselves, they're waiting in there. But maybe that's not so bad, 'cause you know what happens when the commies take over? The first thing they do is shoot all the lawyers!"

    Per usual....

    Communism , by OP definiton, is when a minority of elites are in charge , and have the populace sucking up to them , by means of propaganda

    Yet corporatism in America has achieved the very same elitist status , they obtain the lions share, we the crumbs off their table

    That said 'economic crumb' equates to freedom speaks volumes of their ability to propagandize us

    Historically, capitalism is responsible for many things. Some have been quite good, some quite the opposite. Mostly, it is merely one form of economics that can be blended with others to make a usable system. It has not been shown to function well, on a human level, when least controlled.

    "How Do You Spot A Communist?"
    Probably, the easiest way would be with a felt marker, though a small paint brush and non-irritating paint would work.

    I am! IMHO we all should be. The State is clearly a criminal enterprise masquerading as benevolent force.

    Regarding Communism, the wealthy ruling class loves it, which is why the D Party promotes it.

    One good way to spot a Communist is to go to an anti Trump rally. You find them, homosexuals and pink pussy hat assholes in abundance. Also a few Muslims.

    One of the most propagandized movements in America right now is antifa

    One might not agree with their tactics , while aknowledging their motivations

    basically, these kids see the rise of corporatism as fascist

    their political stance being no different than their Gfathers who fought WW2

    Yet that is constantly stifled in character assination

    These days, if they vote democrat; they embrace the communist way. I was a Democrat in 2016 and cannot recognize my party. It is bizarre.

    Trump tries to butter up everyone he's about to meet.
    I suppose you think it's a great idea to talk shit about them right before you meet with them.
    I've seen firsthand how foreigners react to this type of "Diplomacy".
    It's not pretty.

    So my suggestion is STFU and leave the negotiations to Trump and Pompao.
    Mkay?
