Many Americans seem to feel that Communism is some evil snake that worms its way into things and must be erradicated. I don't get it. The general ideal of communism doesn't sound, HORRIBLE to me, it is just a fantasy. The central ideas hinge on human ability to be a good person. And we simply are not all good people. The IDEA is a mildly good one, not evil IMO. Would I ever want to live in a communist state? No, but doesn't mean the idea is the most horrible thing. So why is it that Communists are evil? Just a cold war throw back that people were trained to believe? And if it is really THAT evil, why does ANYONE support free trade with China??? Isn't it still a communist country?
