America Should Embrace Communist Ideals
Why is Communism Hated in America?
We all associate communism in America with a negative. "Those dirty commies", but why is it so hated? To simply put it Americans hate communism because we selfish, and that is the easiest way to say it. Human nature is to be out for ones self and to fight to survive. Humans originally tried separately trying to continue as a species through self reliance, but when early humans realized that they can't do everything on their own, they turned to villages and to a more group oriented way of living. Those humans lived in a much more accurate communist society than we have ever seen to date.
Americans have this idea of freedom, it courses through their veins and they piss red, white blue, and sprinkle stars and stripes on just about every food imaginable. America loves it's freedoms, the constitution and the bill of rights are sacred to the American people. Now why exactly do they hate Communism? What does that have to do with anything?
Americans like I said love freedom, and for them to have freedoms they feel like the government has to be as small as possible. What do many people associate communism and socialism with? Yep!, you guessed it! Big government! They think you can't have any freedoms under a communist regime, or under a socialist economic system. That is what many Americans are afraid of seeing happen if a communist party takes over America.
Communism Doesn't Need Government
There is this very common misconception that all Communist and Socialist governments and countries need a government with absolute power. In actuality that is very misleading. While yes you need the government for about 5- 20 years at the start of a new government it should eventually fizzle into obscurity.
Now what do I mean by need a government? First of all, when switching political systems you need a very large very strong and very supported (usually) government to take over and get things back into check. Revolutions are a lot of work to recover from. So after finally establishing a new government system and having everything in place, somewhere between 5- 15 years you'll finally have a new system in place, maybe still establishing new laws and rules but the jest of it is complete and set up again. Now next they have all those new laws systems regulations and everything in place for the society to function, they need to really spend the next 5 to 10 years hammering in and cracking down on all those regulations. To make sure everything is off to a good start and this government kicks open the gates running.
Now how does it fizzle into obscurity? Well simply yes the government needs to continue making sure all regulations and standards are met 100% that way the people aren't mistreated misrepresented or going without fucking food. The government always needs to keep a close watchful eye on its society and people and make sure everything is hunky dory. Next the government basically just needs to keep up on infrastructure and its various political systems that would obviously be in place. Like a better welfare, or a better social security, or other better systems than what the American government has. All the government should be doing is infrastructure, political systems, and standards are all met. No censorship, no murders or genocide, yes punishment for those being a detriment to the people, and society as a hole, no political unrest, no filibustering. A great communist government should be getting shit done and done fast otherwise everything crumbles.The government should basically act as a skeleton holding up and keeping the society and country in check and safe and working to the best of its abilities.
Communism and Censorship
Now I am a person that hates censorship in any way shape or form. I hate listening to the radio because it is censored, I hate watching some T.V. because of censorship, and I really hate every communist regime so far because of censorship. Whether it is Soviet Russia (not like it's gotten much better), Communist China, or North Korea, they all have a habit of censoring their people's programming, journalism, people, and voices. That I hate, I absolutely loath it, and in a truly good communist society they wouldn't need censorship.
Now most of the Censorship we have seen, are many things that are 1: Vulgar 2: Sexual in nature, and most importantly 3: Against the current government and regime. Censorship is pure evil and weak in many aspects, and if a state truly feels insecure in it's power, strength, and the way it treats its people then they are going to start censoring. Above all the reasons that communism has failed so far is this one, the censorship of its people.
All that censorship does is destroy the system, it destroys the peoples moral. It makes people have no faith in the government, its skeleton, its structure, and that always leads to a bloody and violent revolution. That is unless you censor your society so well that they don't even know what's going on anymore. Government censorship of people talking just inevitably leads to people talking more about the government.
COMMUNISM DOESN'T NEED CENSORSHIP TO THRIVE!!!!!!!!
would you like to see America go Full Communist
America Loves money
Another thing that Americans don't like is giving up their hard earned money in taxes, or in just about any other way that doesn't stroke their massive ego and make them think they are a better person than they are. That is a very large cause for unrest in today's society, many people hates taxes and also hate the way those taxes are spent, and don't get me started on how Americans feel about welfare.
In a perfectly rounded communist and socialist society, there is no abuse of the system, there is equal pay equal work distributed throughout the people. Now you might be saying to yourself, but John... there are so many different variables, too many different types of people, and too many different kinds of work ethics out there. How can an individualist like yourself truly support communism?
To answer that question I am not truly 100% for communism, because of this aspect. Although communism is great in bettering societies and helping everyone else and the less fortunate there are too many variables to take into account. At this moment in time though. The easiest way to get people with different work ethics is to punish those that don't meet the statues quo of their own volition. Now how do we encourage harder work? More production? The simple fact of the matter is you can't without giving it a capitalistic aspect of more reward, and more incentive, more money.
In a 100% communist society there should be absolutely no currency, nobody should have more than what they need and everybody should be living at par. Now the issue with that is many people love getting more, the greedy capitalist dogs love getting fat, and I do too, I love me my Wendy's. Now that is why I propose the idea of new communism.
