Communism, at its roots, is not such a bad idea for us poor guys. It turned out to be such a huge flop because the leaders are not noble in any way.
I have to remember people that democracy has once elected bad people too. Hitler was democratically elected. He just used the people's anger and hate to get elected. This kind of tampering with people's feelings can happen again in any democracy.
It's already starting in the US...
Democracy's core isn't selfishness..ok maybe it is a bit. Nevertheless, it does encourage people to cover themselves from others, living alone like hermits.
