I was born and grow up (until 10yo) during communism.

Ask me anything.

Just because I start to hear growing support for communism/socialism in US (especially from my college professors)

What do you think of it? Do you like it or do you think it's a bad idea?

There where some good sides to it. Things like school, and "togetherness". School was something more than just math and science. Kids learned how to cook, we cleaned our classes ourselves, we "worked" on the weekends on the farm and visited elderly people. It thought us responsibility, and importance of the community. Everyone was involved in raising kids: school, neighbors, local government. All after school activities were FREE for all. My brothers and sister played piano and I took English, art and some other crap:-). It was great for us, kids, but in reallity, not so much at all.

That's interesting. I think with any government structure there's positives and negatives and it's not so much the system itself that is inherently bad, but the people at the top are so corrupt that it ruins it.

I'm just tired of the media and our leaders villifying communism and socialism as pure evil when in reality there's a lot of good qualities. It's just people like Hitler etc....or Mao give the whole system a bad name. And to be honest capitalism isn't a perfect structure either and we still have a corrupt government ruining it.

Communism was BAD.
No freedom what so ever. Your every move was watched, you couldn't leave the country if you were a "regular" worker, people were in jail for no serious reason for a very long period of time, you couldn't say anything negative about your government, to the point where they would kill you.
For example: In the 80', during military training, a plane crashed on the day care. All the kids died on the spot, but no one knew that happened until 2000s. The parents of those kids where not allowed to say anything to anyone. EVERYTHING was controlled by the government.

Wow that's crazy- it sounds like that book 1984. It's hard to know what is true or not unless you hear it from the source because the media is paid off to say what "they" want you to know.

It's too bad we can't take the freedom of capitalism but mix it with the sense of community from communism and the support of public institutions such as healthcare from socialism and create something new. I know it will never happen but I'm tired of everything being about the dollar and the corporate executives winning while the average joe deals with stagnant wages and little mobility.
