Sorry, I’m not thru. Communism is a bad system that if I had time I’d take to the Pit, just as I would someone saying that Facism was a good form of government. We need to learn from history, not constantly start over from scratch generation to generation.
** “Capitalism leads to dole queues, the scramble for markets, and war. Collectivism leads to concentration camps, leader worship, and war. There is no way out of this unless a planned economy can somehow be combined with the freedom of the intellect.”** --* George Orwell, 1944*
Yes, there is a clear distinction between Socialists and Communists. Socialism, while still favoring state ownership, does not generally call for the total end to private property, nor does it generally seek to end free speech, free thought, civil rights, or democratic elections. Communism seeks to end all of those.
There’s a reason why the old Communists used to use the slogan “Vote for us, and you’ll never have to vote again.”
Don’t think this is strictly true. You would receive treatment by the NHS regardless of nationality. Whether or not you’d have to pay later, I don’t know, but a Japanese friend of mine was seen and treated by an NHS doctor about 10 years ago for no charge.
Looks like I have jumped from the frying pan and into the fire!

No, the fire is in the pit but given the tenor of the threads you have started I feel it is quite likely we will soon see you there.
Great! I can’t even make a joke.
