Keep it on subject, and that's fine. By the way pick one name or I will IP ban you. That goes for your friend too.



As long as you keep this thread on subject and relevant, you'll be fine.

Blatant disregard for decisions of the moderators. Please stay on subject. If you have an issue you can PM me, or open it for general discussion in a new thread.

For the record, I'd love to see some good arguments that substantiate your stance on Communism.

I would love to see your explanation for this.



It's total BS, but I'd love to hear it.

Why would I have to? There is no evidence that America could ever go Communist. I'm not the one making a crazy statement, you are. I don't have to back up anything.

We don't want links. We want good arguments. We want well thought-out statements. We want something that demonstrates that you have some understanding of this subject. History has proven it won't work. If you are going to make bold statements you need to be prepared to back them up.



The burden of proof is on you sir. But you appear to not be up the the challenge, which is most the pity.

I have.



Now give me a good argument.



Communism works wonderfully on paper, in an ideal setting. But that's not reality.

I was forced to read that for a class, so you have explained nothing to me. Try again.

Alright, look at society today, You have the rich and the poor. How many people in this country would honestly give a homeless person ONE chance to redeem themselves. Nobody gives homeless people jobs or anything. In a communistic society everyone has chance to prove themselves useful to society. People are given a better chance to redeem themselves in the eyes of the people.

That is true, if the society is run right. But you have to account for human flaws. This sort of thing simply will not work in reality. Another problem is that Communisms solution to the problem you proposed is treating everyone equally, equally poorly. They use the lowest standards, so the majority gets punished to help the lowest minority.
