In the true sense of the termx yes. But not what most people think of when they think of communism. Not what we are taught in the indoctrination camps.

They were anarchists.

What utter bullshit.

No wonder conservatives are so happy. When living in a world of alternative facts, reforming "reality" to suit becomes a habit.

Please show something from the Bible upholding your bullshit contention that early Christians were anarchists.

Acts 2:42-47


Quote:

The Fellowship of the Believers
42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe[a] came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

Maybe you should read the posts before you just react. True communism is also anarchism.





Quote:


Anarchist communism advocates the abolition of the state, private property and capitalism in favor of common ownership or control of the means of production. Only through such collective control, it argues, can "the individual" be free of governmental domination and economic, that is, capitalist, exploitation. Under anarchist communism, the actual tasks of governance and production would be accomplished directly through a horizontal network of voluntary associations, workers' councils and a gift economy from which everyone would partake solely to satisfy his or her real needs.

They were actually an anarcho-communist society.

Quote:
"All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. And Gods grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need."
-Acts 4:32-35
That's literally communism as Marx defined it. Common ownership, and the abolition of private property.
Thanks from iolo

. And people want this back? Why?
Who loves communism? And who wants it back? And more importantly, when you refer to "communism" do you mean communist theory, or communist society?

No one can love communist society since it has never existed as a national economy and society.
