Dawguard, you have no argument. Because you're arguments come down toth is:Dawguard said:Smasherman, everything you say is a fine ideal. Certanily little nomadic groups lived communal lives, but they had little choice. Most of them were forced to rely on each other for survival simply becuase they were small groups. It was not a question of right and wrong with them, it was simply the best way to live. On a larger scale though it is utterly impractical to expect people to behave like that. Never in all human history has there been a large scale communist society, and that begs the question why? It has been tried, not just in the twentieth century, but it has inevitably failed.
Why do you insist on spouting this gibberish? There are infinitely simpler arguments against communism, all of which do not depend on complicated philosophical issues such as human nature and none of which are all that controversial. For example, my favorite goes a little like this:Dawguard said:This is essentially my argument; that no matter how honorable the intentions of communism it is practically impossible due to the majority of mankind's inherent corruption.
