Are you a Communist?

No. At least, not entirely. I subscribe to many aspects of the communist philosophy, but I don't think true communism can ever really work politically. However, a hybrid of communism and capitalism, like the system China now has, does work. To a degree, anyway.
 
Will I be blacklisted if I answer yes?
 
I consider myself a beliver, just not a practicioner

Ditto. I consider myself a Democratic Socialist.
 
If I'd lived in Italy, I probably would have been one. Italian communism got the shaft, they were the much more righteous alternative for a long time there.

Still voted no,though.Besides the fact that it was absurd to actually try to apply their ideas into an actual system and hope to succeed,my grandfather was taken away by the blue eyed boys on a faithful,chilly,december night thirty odd years ago.I haven't heard from him since.
Plus,I'm comfortable with the idea of gaining greater wealth than other people.
 
Communism works on paper, y'know equal everything for everybody, etc. It just didn't take into consideration the corruptable nature of man.
