People who support the European union are a bunch of selfish, commie red traitors.

Thats all I am saying on this issue.

I hate when people misuse the word "communist."

A communist is not a boogeyman, the ultimate evil that stands in the way of decency and all that is good in the world. A communist, to put it simply, is someone who believes in a system of government and/or economics wherein every person gets an equal share. Everybody works hard, and everybody eats and is taken care of. That's it. Being communist does not immediately make you a d***.

It's not the 50s anymore. We're no longer fighting the "Commie Russians," who by the way really didn't even have a very Communist system.

That's all I am saying on this issue. (Unless I'm bothered to write more.)

Good luck explaining that to Americans... have you tried? If you have, I'd love to hear the stories. I bet they were most entertaining and colorful

Communism, is as stated, not an evil concept in and of itself. That said, the bad connotations of it come because in practice it's not the same as it is on paper. Thi is without a doubt because humans are selfish and have trouble sharing. All government and ther organizations,or time when people interact have one intrinsic flaw; they are comprise of people, and people are flawed. As Book in Firefly said:"A government is a body of people, usually, notably ungoverned."

Yeah, but it's like, when people talk about Communism, they're not even talking about the point of Communism, the equality of everybody. They focus on the restrictions of freedoms, the crap the dictators did because they were, you know, d***-tators.

Not that I think a Communist government could ever work, no way in hell. Maybe in a small group, like a town, but a country of millions? Or even hundreds of thousands? No way. Because like you said, people are flawed, and the more people involved, the more power the leaders need to have, and that just leads to corruption.

Anyways - Communism isn't about keeping people from reading or saying what they want. It's about not being oppressed by the ruling class. Mostly.

I'm in favour of the EU but I don't identify with either communism or Labour. Not sure how it makes one selfish though.

Yes, its great to be in favour of lining the pockets of the Germans, who then have the audacity to moan they are "bailing everyone out", when they are like locusts across Europe, taking all the heavy Industry, seconded only by the French.

I can understand the concept of 'Europe'. It makes a lot of sense in a lot of ways.

That is, of course, providing we all end up speaking English, using the pound and never, ever do anything that I disagree with.

Communism is a good idea, the problem is it doesnt take into account that people are, deep down, all arseholes and coudnt give a crap for anyone else outside their own sphere of loved ones.

Europe is a stupid idea, we should get all the ships the navy has and tow th UK into the middle of the atlantic so that we dont have a land border with any of them. Oh, wait.......

Seriusly, I think it would be a better idea to help each of the european countries out of this financial fracas in stead of spending money we dont have on bailing others out of their own stupidity, Yes its a pity little johnny the kid will die because he drinks water that will give him cholera/ Typhus, but if his parents are stupid enough to give him drinking water they have just s*** in, then thats natural selection. end of.

I agree with this. The only reason that our country gives away its tax money is so it looks good in the public eye. However the adverse effect is it makes us look weak (which our country is right now, we must be the laughing stock of the planet). Any country can come to us with a sob story knowing that we will just hand over money becaise we are too cowardice to say no. At the end of the day that money comes from our tax payers, it should go to our country. People die in other countries, well boo hoo, Ive had people die on my street, the goverment couldnt give a s*** about them

So how about we start looking after ourselves, instead of being pussy whipped little b****es too scared to speak our mind because it will look bad.

Communists??

People r selfish. often find those running such systems r tyrannical and extremist. Using an excuse to confiscate not only property but also all types of human rights and freedom...to secure power and control..

When country's majority gets richer, this idea lose appeal..

Dun think Europe is communist...
