I don’t really care when you expose the faults of other people’s arguments, but when you wrote about me, I couldn’t stand by and let you make a fool of yourself alone, so here’s my help.

Communism: Maybe if you paid attention in an economics class you’d know that “communism” is merely a utopia created by Karl Marx in the “Communist Manifesto.” Real-world communism IS a tyrannical government ruled by a few elite, usually with strong military power, that has absolute control over the entire nation and its resources. If you still don’t get it, here’s some examples: USSR, China, Cuba, North Korea, etc. See what I mean, that’s not even close to “a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed.” Not to mention that with your disagreement, you claimed I was sleeping through POLS 112. Maybe it was a long time ago for you, but POLS 112 is American & California Government. Where is the communism there?

Next, you straight-up lied. I never once said that there are no elitists in the U.S. Not once, unless it was in that part that got cut, hmmm food for thought. (Note: No part was cut.)

It must be nice being able to write virtually as much as you want, and have a week to do it. You really are lucky that letters to the editor have a strict limit of 250 words. It’s a great defense for poor journalism.

Anderson, out!
