You might want to ask yourself what still makes communism so attractive to so many mindless idiots here in the US.

Rational reasoning is not always required or even desired. Fairy tales and make believe are a huge portion of the communist pipe dream. That, and appealing directly to the most base and destructive hatred of envy that can reside in men’s souls.

Of course, among the elites of the world, there’s ever only been two options since the fall of the aristocracy.

Everything must either be fascism or communism. The uniquely evil American thing is never even considered as a possibility.

I think the communists also frequently exploit real injustices. For example, in South Vietnam, the US kept urging the government there to implement land reform, also a communist cause.

In Indonesia during Suharto's time, I wonder what injustices, like feudal land arrangements perhaps, the communists exploited.
