We are talking with the general secretary of the Communist Party of Britain to line up a interview and guess what, Justin and I want your questions, so ask away

Would you agree that true communism is unable to exist due to the the current level of human development (culturally, technologically, mentally), and that maybe it is in fact an ideology for the far flung future?

Do you feel there is a western conspiracy to portray communism in a bad light and downplay the socialist benefits?

How do you feel communism can be applied for the future in societies already dominated by corporate greed?

I was once apart of the Young Communist league and left because the bias that was shown to leaders like Chavez and Kim Jong iL. Also, I was shocked that the Communist party spreaded Chinese propaganda regarding Tibet too.

Why is Communist foreign policy blinded by Marxist ideology?

I used to live in Eastern Europe, during the communism .It was the worst part of my life. This was the most horrific experience for millions of people. How is your communism going to be different from what we experienced in Eastern Europe???

If the communist governments we have seen so far have been unable to govern without an intolerant and brutal (not forgetting mass-murderous) history why on earth should we bother with it here now?

Correct me if I am wrong but everyone of the eastern European regimes, China and Russia has seen police states grow up with umteen various 'security services', huge cruelty, state repression and across the last century deaths numbering around 60 million
(28 million in Russia and 36 million in China by some estimates).

Why should I give the 'communist system' any more of the time of day than I would a nazi party?

I'm all for a far more equal and much more compassionate society but I just can't see why I should trust any version of communism to deliver that, given their history.

How would a communist regime be implemented, the economic and cultural differences between people in Britain are blindingly obvious so would it even be possible for communism to establish itself in the UK?

1) Why are you a communist?

2) What role does communism have in the post-Cold War world, especially when it was clear that the people living in communist nations wanted to rid themselves of that ideology and the remaining communist governments (e.g. China, North Korea, Cuba) have to use censorship and repression to varying degrees to control their populace?

I also think UK Wizard's question was an interesting one, but I'd like to put a slightly different spin on it:

3) Do you think true communism (which presumably you advocate) is achievable? Doesn't human nature (i.e. greed) get in the way?

i prefer the old jewish system of governance. a section of land was designated for each person, or persons tribe, and that land was theirs eternally.

they could lease their land, but they would get it back in the jubilee (fifty years)

that way no one could enslave anyone.

a mans property was his own, and he had the right to the work of his hands.

(that is where myself and communism depart, wealth distributed by force is a violation of this law)

the farmers were commanded by God to not reap the corners of their fields, so the poor could come and eat.

there were many laws and regulations to help and protect the poor, orphans and widows.

however, a man had God given rights which could not be justifiably disregarded by man.

this was reflected in the overall law,
and so the governing bodies did not violate or compromise a mans personal freedom.

only strife will follow such violation. where is my authority to claim this? history is my authority.

yet forgetfulness mixed with this complacent generation who has been birthed by this over-zealous socialist goverment will cost us.

i am no hard line, right wing conservative. but at the same time i do not deny the damage this socialist goverment has inflicted on my country.

Please explain how the capitalist structure would be undone and replaced, including levels of oversight and policies of re-education.

one of communisms main strategies of bringing about change, is the powerful indoctrination of communist idealogies, a rose tinted promotion of the extreme left (including a softening down of the past failures of communism- they blame the evil capatilists for the failures), and an extreme propaganda driven slander on any other political ideology.

there is always struggle with the first generation, as the change that is demanded from communism is extreme.

they deal with this WITH the education systems they introduce, so that the indoctrination brings about a generation after the first, that is sympaphetic with communist or marxist idealogies.

because of the contrast between a countries first generation (typically speaking)
and the introduction of communism to that generation, communism tends to inject itself by force (excuse the pun)
