Once upon a time, people yearned to be free of the misery of capitalism. How could their dreams come true? This little book proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism. Offering relief for many who have been numbed by Marxist exegesis and given headaches by the earnest pompousness of socialist politics, it presents political theory in the simple terms of a children's story, accompanied by illustrations of lovable little revolutionaries experiencing their political awakening.

It all unfolds like a story, with jealous princesses, fancy swords, displaced peasants, mean bosses, and tired workers--not to mention a Ouija board, a talking chair, and a big pot called "the state." Before they know it, readers are learning about the economic history of feudalism, class struggles in capitalism, different ideas of communism, and more. Finally, competition between two factories leads to a crisis that the workers attempt to solve in six different ways (most of them borrowed from historic models of communist or socialist change). Each attempt fails, since true communism is not so easy after all. But it's also not that hard. At last, the people take everything into their own hands and decide for themselves how to continue. Happy ending? Only the future will tell. With an epilogue that goes deeper into the theoretical issues behind the story, this book is perfect for all ages and all who desire a better world.

I'm all for free speech. If people want their children learning about communism, then I guess it's on them.

If they try for a communist revolt?

I'll have issues.

But this is the world we live in. Capitalism = bad, communism = good.

Once again, I am so glad I'm old and won't have to put up with this insanity for much longer.

The difference between capitalism and communism was clearly explained a long time ago.
Capitalism involves the exploitation of man by man.
Communism is the other way round.

Are you pretending to be stupid or do you come by it honestly?

We did this already, where I was lamenting school teachers enacting their revolution by socially engineering unassuming small children while they're supposed to be learning academics at school, and you were the main one effectively arguing the teachers should have a right to subvert the children while on government payroll.

That's why I'm raising my kids to be feral. They broke the leash line a few days back but I'm sure they are fine.

Or we could always make them watch star trek.

Borg communists.

Federation socialists.

Ferengi were the capitalists.

Everyone was bad except the federation.
