After seeing all these ‘communist’ threads (most started by the same person) I have a question:
Why do you think that living in a communist system would be better than another system (say capitalism for example)
Most of the threads I’ve seen only talk about ‘communism is enevitable’ or ‘everything is owned by the poeple’ or the mechanics of implementing a communist system. None of the threads seem to talk about WHY it would be a better system.
Just because the government owns everything instead of private individuals does not tell me why that is better. The government runs the DMV/RMV. Does that mean everything will be run like the DMV? Or will everything look like the slick modern offices with the sweeping views you see in TV comercials?
And as a corporate worker-ant, what does it matter to me who owns what as long as I still have to drag my ass on the subway every morning to get to work? Do I even have to work if I don’t feel like it?
Will I live in a nicer house under communism or will I live in something that looks like a HUD housing project. Or will all houses be luxary condos and suburban McMansions?
Can I even choose WHERE to live?
Will I be able to choose my own career or will it be chosen for me?
Will there be an infinite array of clothes to select or will I have to wear a grey jumpsuit and a babooshka? Or will we all wear business causal Banana Republic style chinos and shirts.
Will there be anything good to watch on TV?
Convince me as an upper middle class MBA who works for corporate America that my life would be improved under communism.
