America: A beacon of freedom.
After reading one of the threads on this forum, I just remembered a confusion that seems widely spread.
When conservative individuals want to use a pejorative name for liberals, they tend to use the term communist. Communism is just an ideology. The forceful implementation of communism, as in the case of many countries like Cuba, USSR, China, etc. is a communist dictatorship. Communism is not the problem. The dictatorship part is. There have been, and there are now, countries were socialist and communist parties have reached a democratic government. France, Italy, Spain, Greece and others, have had or have now, socialist or communist democracies.
Iím not a communist. Iím a liberal, but I believe that if you want to be a communist, in a free country, you should be able to. If you want to be a fascist, you should be able to as well. As long as you comply with the laws, you should be able to have any ideology you choose. Thatís just part of what makes a country a democracy.
I just wanted to get that out of my chest.
