Where are the gulags when you need them?

Where is the movement of truely true communists who truly eschew the entirety of capitalism?
They would by necessity have no clothing, food, housing, or anything of value that wasn't somehow government -or self-made, correct? They could do it today if they liked, with identical jump suits and slippers, and government food kitchens to feed them, and government housing to keep them warm. Otherwise known as jail. They are wishing for jail, the suicidal bastards. And yet, we find them with Phillip Morris products hanging from their mouths, greenbacks in their pockets, oil in their tanks, and corporate logos all over their clothing.

Your Say

IDK if it will move any liberal minds (so implacable and unintelligent are they) but I'm wanting to point out that the liberal mind believes that the economy means: that money that the government has. It is incredible in idiocy, but everything flows from that stupidity.

Now, on which side of private ownership, individuality, and privacy does the left fall every time?

Almost everybody believes a *little bit* of communism is a good thing.

After all, without a *little bit* of violent coercion normal people turn into savages.

I believe in more primal instincts and motivations. Human nature demands we look out for ourselves first and foremost. We all of us believe that if we work twice as hard as the next guy we deserve twice as much reward.

Look at "lifeboat morality" and tell me how much we are all brothers (and sisters) when the food and water runs out.

Lowest common denominator means that a bunch of us would have to lower our worth. Who's first to give up comfort and material things for the poor wretches that cannot or will not earn same? C'mon, step up and empty your pockets for the other guy.

Hmm, nobody is rushing to start the thing off. This altruism degrades into if you don't give willingly we will force you. Or the poor wretched masses will rise up and take what they want. Oh, and that will never be to distribute equally. it will be like we started this comment, every person for themselves and grab whatever you can carry.
