Communism is government ownership of the means of production. See Wikipedia for details on my view of communism. How do you suppose the collective
take someone's means of production away from them to get it in their control? They use force.
What do you call a collective that takes people's property without permission and then places it into "the commons"? I call it the government.
I'm just calling things the way they are. You can mask the violence with nice sounding words but it doesn't change the facts. The facts are that
communists take people's property at any and all costs necessary. If they need to KILL you to get your personal individual means of production, they
will. Look at Venezuela oil companies for an example of communism. The collective controls the means of production of oil in that country. You can
also look at the US postal service.
