Prakash RP: Blog: On The Definition of Communism

I think I got the broader goals of what communism is supposed to be now. That there should be no profits, that a country is a community, which is where Communist comes from. That the whole community should literally share everything with out anyone owning anything. So that would eliminate property rights all together and essentially make everything in society under the ownership of the central communist state. The state, would even own someone’s home where they live. The state, would own our cars and even clothes. No such thing as a private sector. Why? Because there’s no such thing as property rights.

So even in true communist state, things like opposition parties would be outlawed. Why? Because at least in America the state doesn’t own political parties. They’re own and run by private individuals. So if Prakash RP, a self-described Communist and his definition of communism is correct, plus what I just wrote about communism, based on what I read from his blog, how does this version of communism any different from the Soviet Union, the People’s Republic of China before they legalized private property and ownership. Same thing with the Communist Republic of China before they went capitalist and brought private enterprise to their economy about ten years ago. Which is just one of the reasons why America and Cuba have restarted diplomatic relations.

If you’re familiar with the Reverend Jim Jones and his People’s Temple from the 1970s and their big field trip to Guyana in the 1970s, you know that is exactly the type of state he tried to create there with his so-called Jonestown. A state where the people would live off the land and live to serve each other and share everything that they gain with each other from off the land. Now of course Jones turned into a brutal paranoid dictator and perhaps responsible for the deaths of a thousand innocent people down there. But that is what we wanted Jonestown to be at least in the beginning. This communitarian communistic even environment where there would be no profits and selfishness. Again, how is that type of economic system different from what we use to see from Russia, China, Cuba and still today with North Korea?
