" I expect that Communism will always take on the national characteristics of any given nation. Obviously, South American Communism would never look like Chinese or Korean Communism, and Irish Communism would be very different again." This is a fascist Maxim almost verbatim, just swap out the word 'communisim'. Again Communisim/Marxisim is an international ideology. I'm against central planning of the economy. I'm against state interference in everyday life, including things such as education, the press, healthcare etc. I'm against the idea of equality for all. We are not equal. To say we are is to misrepresent the world. I'm against the international nature of it. As mentioned elsewhere, everywhere it has manifested itself, it has resulted in pain, suffering and untold death. It is man's vain attempt to subvert the natural order of the world. There has been not one single successful Communist state. Not one single successful Socialist state. Marxisim reads like a utopian paradise. But a critical eye on every Socialist/Communist tells a different story.
