@8Presstorm8 Being a communist is not a crime. Neither advancing a Marxist-based agenda. [1/3] @Ghostpickles

@jegerentwit @8presstorm8 @ghostpickles not a crime, but why support a failed totalitarian philosophy? Utilitarianism always corrupts.

@misesiantexan Now for the irony piece: ujm what else corrupts? @8presstorm8 @ghostpickles [lulz]

@misesiantexan If I may: Communism has, as the line goes, never really been applied. @8Presstorm8 @jegerentwit @ghostpickles

@misesiantexan I would prefer Socialism. Monarchy my #1. But I would take Communism over status quo @8Presstorm8 @jegerentwit @ghostpickles

This makes no sense. RT @timeoutcorner: @misesiantexan I would prefer Socialism. Monarchy my #1. But I would take Communism over status quo
Presstorm Media @Presstorm_Media
@timeoutcorner I would not want socialism. A govt big enuf to give you everything also is big enuf to take it all away just as fast. =/
Presstorm Media @Presstorm_Media
@timeoutcorner Unfortunately - most of the youth today know nothing but nanny state class welfare. =/ No sovereignty. #indoctrination
Red Seeker @timeoutcorner
@8Presstorm8 We already have a gov't big enough to take away everything. That point, I fear, is redundant. :P
Red Seeker @timeoutcorner
@8Presstorm8 The US has nothing like a real welfare state. It's just a corporate state. We're consumers with a lifeline.
franya @franyafranya
@timeoutcorner Second, how any one be an acceptable substitute for a "preferred" other? They are too different, even as broad terms.
Red Seeker @timeoutcorner
@8Presstorm8 Successful welfare states have been constructed. Sweden was before the neo-cons took over. Canada has a good attempt as well.
Red Seeker @timeoutcorner
@franyafranya I'll define terms first, it that's okay with you. :)
franya @franyafranya
@timeoutcorner They are too vague, too hard to define for conversation, if not outdated. That's all I care to say; just food for thought.
Red Seeker @timeoutcorner
@franyafranya So.... you don't want me to answer your questions, then? I'm a bit confused here.
franya @franyafranya
@timeoutcorner Actually, I'd rather not - no offense, just not a good conversation for twitter's limitations - that's my point.
franya @franyafranya
@timeoutcorner It's too big to carry on here, that's all! And it's past my bedtime now. If you'd post it on a blog, great, let me know! : )
Red Seeker @timeoutcorner
@franyafranya Challenge accepted. ;) Good night! Rest well, catch you later. :)
misesiantexan @misesiantexan
@timeoutcorner @franyafranya non voluntary communism has to rely on utilitarianism and the subjugation of the individual to the State's will
Red Seeker @timeoutcorner
@misesiantexan That's not simply Communism. That's totalitarianism. There is, in fact, capitalist totalitarianism. ^_^ @franyafranya
