Well Echelon you simply don't understand that with Communism, it's never ran by the people.
Communism is complete ownership of everything by an "entity" that of its own free will gives out equal shares to the people.
The truest form of communism would be this and ONLY this...Everyone is in a union in the government, the government would opperate just like ours
today, and people could own businesses, except, the government would own the "labor" so if a business wanted an employee they have to respond to the
governments demands for "safety//pay//benifits" and such, and if the company doesn't meet those, the government takes back the laborer, and finds a
new job for him. So on...that is about as close as you can get to it.
No real application though is truly functional, because it all boils down to, someone making the rules, everyone else follows them.
Our constitutional government, isn't supposed to be that way, the fact it's becomming that way means we are probably close to a Civil War, or it's
just a phase.
But our government, it isn't a Democracy, or a Republic, it is something stronger, and more free, it is a Federation.
The constitution explicitly says we govern through federalism, and there's no room for communism in federalism, or capitalism.
