Communism is dead, huh?
Are you paying a progressive income tax?
The Cold War is far from over. Some of us are still fighting it, while others turn a blind eye mistakenly believing the fight was against the Soviet Union. Communists have infiltrated every level of our bureaucracies. Communists preach to our children every day while they sit in a classroom. There are numerous communists passing (or at least attempting to pass) laws in our state and federal governments.
When the Berlin wall fell it released like a tsunami a wave of communism that swept over Europe and engulfed it. The waves on our own shores are getting pretty high.

>> Communism is dead, huh?
As a viable governing structure, yes.
I am from Massachusetts, the last bastion of Communism. The fact that communist individuals exist does not mean that the country is about to be over run by them.
Pagans still exist, no one is worried about them taking over...
They are like the heads and hippies, they are being dissolved into the greater culture, and are nothing more than a quaint novelty to the average person.
I agree the government sux, and intends to eat out the entire substance of the republic, but this mentality was around a thousand years before Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.
All governments are roving bands of thieves that stopped roving. Nothing more and nothing less. Communism is not a factor, thievery and the desire to live good via coercion of those who produce wealth and value is.
