Yes ... until we get it just right!
You know, "good" communism.
>> 6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.
I dispute this.
Where is this ether under state (or any reasonable) control...?
>> . Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
I dispute this.
How are all the factories and corporations that leave our shores under any form of state control.
This is old stuff.
I read this when I was a kid, when communism still lived.
Communism is dead today, and I never got to actually kill one.
it's dumb paranoia... There is so much better stuff out there today, why waste time on this.
Coast to Coast has better stuff than this on every night.
Yes. Social Security and "public education" even comes right out and admits it.
I agree with pretty much everything except some portions of number 6.
To say this is alarmist nonsense is to keep one's head buried in the sand. Americans need to take back our country from a bloated, centralized, overbearing, wasteful, arrogant, confiscatory (the adjectives could go on and on) federal government. Our government penalizes the productive while rewarding the lazy and ridicules virtue while encouraging license. It is truly out of control.
They call themselves "progressives" now. (actually, that is an old term from Nazi Germany and Communists.)
One could think so, when of the frame of mind to compare our inevitable creep and argument about 'regulation of good intention' to actual oppression. But I have a feeling those who have suffered ~actual~ communism would slap you for suggesting our spoiled, rich country isn't the most livable free country to ever exist on the planet. So it's all relative.
Call me a commie, but I think the Fed is a good thing. Keeping money supply stable is a national security issue and its one of those things I don't mind the government doing.
