Why do you perceive Communism to be evil (Mice on the Menu for Christmas- Enjoy Kitties)
NeinNeinNein

OK, this is not a flame thread. I'm genuinely curious why conservatives think Communism is so evil.

I am a Communist. I am also a God-fearing Christian, a tax-paying and loyal American, and a generally nice guy. Communism was perverted by third world despots and was never implemented fully in its true form.

Communism is about cooperation and good will. And it's important to note that economic success and cooperation are not mutally exclusive. In fact, I would argue greater cooperation among individuals leads to more prosperity and more overall happiness.

Over 150,000,000 million human beings murdered by those who "believe in the good of communism." Do you feel good about that?

Communism is the creation of evil. ALL who believe in communism have evil in their heart.

either you are joking, very young, or you are incredibly naive about the realities of human nature.

Communism is about cooperation and good will.

Have you done any research on Communism?

In the 20th Century alone, over 100 million people were killed by Communist leaders.

And I'm not talking about warfare. I'm talking about Communist regimes killing its own citizens.

There's a famous satellite photo out there of The Korean Peninsula at night that shows the stark difference between Communist North Korea and Capitalist South Korea.

If that photo doesn't cure you of Communism, nothing will.

The only time communist countries aren't poor is when they've allowed some capitalism to offset the stupidity of a command economy.

Vietnam is an interesting example. After all the blood sweat and tears poured into that place they still couldn't quite kill the black market and the communists went broke trying. Today that have what they call a socialism based free market because the communists don't want to admit that they lost in the long run. As I understand it most of the economy is capitalistic with a few strategic industries being nationalized.

OK. I’ll bite.

I like choices. I like to make them.

I also like thinking $#it up. All kinds of stuff, ideas, thoughts.... I like being able to choose whether to pursue them, give them away, protect them for me, etc.

I do NOT like being told what to do. By anyone. I recognize that courtesy and civility is a question of developed ways of behaving so people don’t beat the living crap out of each other. So, I am ordinarily courteous and civil.

Furthermore, I do not like other people being nosy. Ever. About me. I will tell you what I want, when I want, and that’s that. This also applies to me. You keep your distance, and I’ll keep mine.

The assumption that people will be given, each to his ability and need, is patently absurd for me. I don’t want anyone to give me anything. I’ll fend for myself, and I expect others to do so, too. The ‘givenors’ are described as vague, control-happy busybodies who use the guise of The State to ride their power trip in telling and allotting. It’s none of their business.

Oddly enough, conservatives like putting their boots on one-at-a-time, without anyone thinking they should TELL a person to do so.

Ultimately, free will is so much more difficult than living life will-free that apparently, someone came up with an idea of total blurring of everyone’s stuff, money, talents and entire beings that makes everyone as gray as Mao suits. How blah is that kind of life, anyway?

Don’t you understand ruggedness? Don’t you understand how important it is to learn and do and think about stuff? Do you not value your own mind and spirit?

Communism is about the forceful seizure of private property. There is no freewill invovled, unlike in Christianity where one gives freely to others in need. I am also willing to bet that you do not give up everything you do not need to help out those who have less than you, which would make you part of the bourgeiosie.

Communism is about cooperation? It would work, if the masses would cooperate with the few at the top, community organizing us into the zombie servants of the warped vision of the “vanguard class.” Because most have not wanted to submit to it in the past, scores of millions have been murdered. How bout you pursuing your own dream, and leaving the rest of us to go after what we want? The Soviets were able to put the empire in place by force; That will NEVER happen here. So give it up loser.

“And communists throughout history have been making that same excuse all along.”

The only problem with Capitalism is that there tends to be unequal distribution of wealth.
Far from being a better system, Communism ensures that there is equal distribution of misery.

Communism is about cooperation and good will.

The communists believe they have found the path to deliverance from our evils. According to them, man is wholly good and is well-disposed to his neighbour; but the institution of private property has corrupted his nature. The ownership of private wealth gives the individual power, and with it the temptation to ill-treat his neighbour; while the man who is excluded from possession is bound to rebel against his oppressor. If private property were abolished, all wealth held in common, and everyone allowed to share in the enjoyment of it, ill-will and hostility would disappear among men. Since everyone's needs would be satisfied, no one would have any reason to regard another as his enemy; all would willingly undertake the work that was necessary. I have no concern with any economic criticisms of the communist system; I cannot enquire whether the abolition of private property is expedient or advantageous. But I am able to recognize that the psychological premisses on which the system is based are an untenable illusion.

Sure looks like a flame thread. Saying it isn’t doesn’t make it not one.

You might want to consider studying both Communism and Christianity and than pick one. One sells your soul, the other saves it.

Think about why third world despots choose Communism.

Communism is about coercion, they just like to call it cooperation.
Communism is about ill will. Making everybody equal does nobody good.

Nothing has ever failed economically like Communism.

Greater cooperation among individuals does lead to economic success, hence the free market.

Happiness in Communist society is typically found in a bottle.

You can get answers here on FR, but you won’t be convinced of truth until you read the Bible, study history, and come to conclusions by sound thinking.

I only give you this input because I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt thinking you are being honest with your questions. It seems more likely to me you are just trolling for FR handles of any people who are anti-liberal/communist/progressive/or whatever you want to call it.

Fundamentally simple why Communism is evil...like the difference between an act of love and an act of rape...force

A person can willing give all they of themselves to other... that free will.... it requires no government...but if you use force to take it

It not what you give ...its what you take by force...you demand all

To each according to their ability to each according to their needs?...who decides?...a slave has someone one decides their ability and their needs and has it imposed on them every day

A free man is one that decides for himself and accept the responsibility of that freedom

Hi Nein,

I understand the fantasy of communism, where we’re all in it together and raising up the weak. But that is a fantasy.

In reality, those who choose not to be productive act as anchors for the productive and, when there are enough unproductive people, it destroys society.

Every communistic society has ended up destroying itself at some point, because it goes contraire to the human nature that God has endowed man with.

I will give it a go. Communism fails in its original assumption. That is Man is naturally good. That in a state of nature, Man is a cooperative and docile being. As our Founding Fathers knew, this is a false assumption about Man. In a communist society, Man has to be forced to be against his basic nature. This is the fact that turns the idealistic revolutionary into a mass murderer. People are not like what Marx says they are. Thus they must be made into a good “Communist Man” at the end of the barrel of a gun. Thus the violence that must be used to create a communist society proves its failure.
Our Founding Fathers, and I will add Adam Smith, knew the truth of Man's nature. They devised a society that channels Man's basic nature into productive and positive ways without sacrificing Liberty. Capitalism takes Man's basic competitiveness and channels it into creating the most wealth for the most people. While our Constitution creates a government of checks and balances that does not allow one faction absolute power, thus protecting everybody’s Liberty.
You could write a book about this, but I will stop here.

Here's something for the poor child about why "communism" is so bad:
In the broadest terms, is the end of society to be a state of knowledge in which the individual is able to understand the possible consequences of his behavior and is then free to choose according to his own desires and goals, the general state of society then an amalgam of informed individual choices? Or is the end to be a state of being in which the individual’s choices are limited by others to a range calculated by them most likely to result in that state of being, the general state of society then an expression of coerced individual actions?

The latter end is characteristic of family (both nuclear and extended), of tribalism (the mythologized extended family), of socialism (re-mythologized tribalism in a suit), and of totalitarianism (demythologized socialism with guns). All consist in the individual being forced by others using various means into behavior that will be
1) for his own good later in life (the family),

2) for society’s good (tribalism/socialism), or

3) for the good of the individuals in control of the society (totalitarianism).
While this is universally seen as appropriate within the child/family relationship for developmental reasons, its application to society at large by some group within that society, or by one society to another, has been the cause of most social ferment throughout history.

The track record of authoritarianism has been excellent in terms of its persistence throughout history and across cultures but has been abysmal in terms of knowledge (Lysenko and Soviet genetics, German anthropology and the Nazi state, environmentalism including the global warming hoax), in terms of human rights (the Inquisition, the Holocaust and other pogroms, China and family planning, most post-colonial African dictatorships) and in terms of technological inventiveness (the miserable record of Soviet-style five year plans, Mao’s fixation on steel production and its disruption of the flow of goods and services, the extreme environmental damage left behind in the former Eastern bloc as a direct result of centralized control of capital, labor, and resources).

The reason for this is that authoritarianism or statism doesn’t allow the freedom for the wide range of viewpoints necessary for generating and testing hypotheses, let alone the ad hoc experimentation and innovation by individuals for their own reasons that form the basis of a developing, knowledge-based, technological society. Discovery is not allowed to take one where it will--it must be restricted to the party line (witness the vitiating of the ideal of the university by notions of political correctness).

Given the complexity of life, the narrow range of understanding possessed by any particular group is guaranteed to fall short at some point. Given the concentration of power exercised under a centralized system, the failures are guaranteed to have widespread and crippling effects. By contrast, the multiplicity of successes and failures over a wide range of scale that appear so chaotic in a state of liberty have the benefit of limiting the damage and of spreading throughout society successes which can be emulated and modified to fit local conditions.

Altruism can only come voluntarily, from the individual. All else is coercion, and coercion is slavery. Every individual is unique, and entitled to freedom and self-determination. In a free society people are free to give away all that they have, and to eschew their own property. Nothing is stopping you from living a life without personal property, and from sharing what you have with everyone. You have no right, however, to demand that others live their lives the way that you think they should.

I have never met a socialist, or communist who wasn’t a hypocrite.

There’s no such thing as a system where a few people at the top don’t get rich but Capitalism is the only system that allows a whole range of economic levels with freedom to move up or down the scale.

The problem today isn’t that the rich are undertaxed (that doesn’t affect anything) its that taxpayers are overtaxed across the board and its strangling capitalism.

As most people have pointed out... at this point we judge it by its fruits which were so bad, that it’s hardly worth dignifying the question with an answer.

But I guess it would be interesting to imagine that Communism never existed, had no fruits good or bad, and that you Herr NeinNeinNein were presenting it for the very first time.

It obvioulsy had an allure even among good people. Plus one must imagine the early Capitalists working children at the mills 18 hours a day and paying them with rocks.

It’s late and I’m bushed, so I’ll just say that oftentimes it’s quite easy to say what wrong is... but extremely hard to say what right is.

The early Communists pointed to a lot of wrongs, but as soon as the ends justify the means... and worldy utopias are offered... you’ve undermined your mines and opened the gates of hell.

This is true of any ideology or system.

The madman is not the man who has lost his reason. He is the man who has lost everything except his reason. Chesterton, Gilbert K

Communism is wrong on several levels, from the moral to the practical.

On a moral/ethical level, how can you justify confiscating the fruits of a man’s labors to give to another?

Communism steals from the individual many of their rightful choices. For example, if the state builds cars, it’s inefficient to build too many different models, so the “consumer” ends up having his free will confiscated, nay STOLEN because the auto maker isn’t beholden to the customers. Since the state makes the cars, and you can’t sue the state under communism, there’s no incentive to make the cars safe or of good quality, so they don’t. If the state decides they want tractors this year instead of cars, tough titsky, you don’t get a car! (In reality, even the US auto industry is far too centrally planned with too much intrusion by people who aren’t buying the cars — which is ANY.)

As a practical matter, if practiced honestly Communism mostly evens out the differences between individual outcomes (in practice, there’s always a privileged elite). If everyone is going to get the same outcome, how do you motivate 90% of them to do anything?

Communism, again if practiced according to the theory, applies the system that prevails in a small household to large groups of people, most of whom will never meet each other. This is both immoral and unworkable, and that’s even before considering how the idea works in practice as opposed to theory.

Why do I know Communist are evil?

In their quest to modernize China, the Communist caused the greatest famine known to man. During this “Great Leap Forward” at least seven members of my family starved to death.

In their quest to create a classless society, my grandfather died from the beatings he received from the Red Guard. He crime was being the village school teacher.

In their quest to create a Godless society, Father Anthony, a family friend, was sent to a concentration camp for refusing to renounce God and his church. He was finally released after more than 30 years of imprisonment.

Anyone who proclaims himself to be a Communist or even sympathetic to Communism is either a fool or a psychopath.

Give the boy credit for this tired old line, that the likes of Obama, Axelrod and Ayers would prolly use on ya as well. This has been the apologists' excuse since Stalin's long known crimes were uncovered officially in the mid 50s by then communist pope Comrade Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev, himself a willing participant in them. The Western apologists and fellow travelers could not hide anymore, although the likes of the despicable Pete Seeger continued to do so until the current century, while others kept changing their heroes, like teenage girls change pop idols, to Lumumba, Castro, then Ho Chi Minh, then Pol Pot, then Minnie Mandela, Saint Mugabe, Arafat, Chavez, as the next messiahs who'd implement the real, REAL Communism as imagined by the jesus of Communism Karl Marx and his saint peter Engelbert Engels. Now, even our Chairman Bob Avakian is changing his song of revolution to a version Communism where all voices pro and against will be heard and tolerated. I for one can't wait! Go, Chairman Bob!

Communism places the good of the collective above the good of the individual. This makes people who live under it slaves to the good of the collective and removes their natural rights to life liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. For example, if you are a threat to those in power, and your death would benefit the state , Communism dictatres that you must be killed, as many were in China, Russia, and Cuba. Don’t you think it is evil to kill people to advance a political agenda?

Having lived in a former communist country, I can attest to its horror and futility. Sure, communist leaders murder, but in my opinion it does something even worse. Communism destroys a man’s intrinsic value of other human beings.

Communism discourages a man from producing anything in its most efficient, effective, and beneficial form. Instead, it encourages a man to only produce that which will keep him from drawing attention to himself...as a matter of survival for him and his family.

Communism robs a man of his spirit-that spirit which naturally drives him to excel in his endeavors. Men, under communism, become slothful and indolent, building an insatiable expectation that someone else will provide for his welfare.

On a daily basis, around 50 percent of my interactions are with communists (both American and immigrants). These interactions continually make it clear that their ideology teaches them to view people as nothing more than a tool whose value depreciates to dirt when they can no longer use the tool to get their way.

You cannot murder everyone in your society, but you can kill their will to excel. This ideology does not die with the generation who experiences its ills, but also poisons the generations that follow.
