I think you are probably using the terms communist and socialist without really understanding what they mean. Politicians are just pushing your buttons to confuse you.
Then who are these socialists or communists who are telling any of us what to do? You have a reference to food stamps in one of your stories, which has nothing at all to do with socialism.
Interesting, because many would consider food stamps an expression of charity, based on christian ethics. If a child's father is an alcoholic or cannot find work should this child suffer malnutrition?
Communist states tended to not tolerate unproductive people and found work for everyone. I'm not a communist, but do believe in the dignity of work for all.
If you are saying that all tax is wrong and all property can only be held by individuals then I think those views are extreme. Jesus didn't oppose the idea of taxes. So then, the responsibility for charity also extends to acts of the state or institutions as well, not just individuals. I don't see a problem with a democratic government being given responsibility to protect the country from external aggressors, provide essential services and to protect the most vulnerable. This is not socialism and these practices existed long before socialist ideas were first put forward. And socialists don't always apply force any more than any democratic government does in taxing the people to provide services. Communists on the other hand did apply force.
what is wealth if we are not happy and our brothers are starving.
i don't know. it just seems pointless to spend life acquiring money and focusing on myself when i think we should find a way off this planet so that our species can continue to live
whatever the hell they use in the star trek universe.
