Communism is progressive in the same sense that cancer is progressive.

You got that right! I visited Brazil in 2000, for 2 1/2 weeks. A little old lady asked me how I liked her country. I told her it was very beautiful. She said, "Yes, but our government is CORRUPT!"
A friend who lived there said the cops are just there to collect bribes. Most people have no indoor plumbing or electricity. They live in shacks on the hillside. Education is not common for the very poor. It is a horrible place to live if you are poor. The government charges HUGE taxes, for example on cars, and for anything not made in Brazil. But the revenue never makes it to help the poor.
