I’ve read Atlas Shrugged. Have you read The Communist Manifesto? Of course you haven’t. You only read right wing claptrap that validates your shallow beliefs. All you think you know about the Manifesto comes from its detractors.

You probably couldn’t name one principle of Communism or Socialism and you probably don’t even know the difference between the two. You would recite a bunch of garbage about incentive and failure that you got from talk radio or hate television.

I live in a Communist country. It’s corrupt and shabby but life here is not so bad; the cops don’t bust down your door and shoot your dog. Bribery is commonplace. But people work, they have lives, and the cost of living is so low that my Social Security which wouldn’t support a cottage in the USA is penthouse money here. And the food is great.
