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.

Best Answer

I understand them...the faddish nuances between the two I will leave to them.

Best Answer

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.

Best Answer

Socialism is a social and economic system characterized by social ownership of the means of production and co-operative management of the economy. Food stamps represent the coercive co-operative management of other peoples efforts , a hallmark of socialism.

Best Answer

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.

Best Answer

A Christians' expression of charity is done with their own property through God inspired free will.-------- Socialists must first apply force in order to plunder the property of others prior to the redistribution of the plunder....after they take a cut.

Best Answer

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.
