"I would think that if you understood what Communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees, that we would someday become communists."

Sorry, Jane, I'd have to give you a big fat negative on that one.

i am having a hard time going way back to my history classes and remembering the difference between communism and socialism. i'm gonna go refresh my memory, but in any case... i think they are great theories that just dont work out in practical life.

exactly.
Eric and I talk about that all the time. Communism is great. On paper. In real life? Yeah, not so great.

If anything equals no hope it is Communism.
