Bit rude, and also I gotta say that I'm a little bit disappointed, this seemed like what could have become a fruitful and interesting conversation, but whatever.
Also it's interesting how you decided to bring the term communism in when I was talking about leftist politics more broadly, bit ironic given how this whole discussion started from the inaccurate usage of fascism, but I guess only one of these labels is acceptable to use to discredit those who disagree with you.
be honest with yourself, no fruitful conversation was ever going to come from this and I think you know that. you support what you support, I support what I support. I will never, ever, under any circumstance, be able to sympathize with your ideology, nor you with mine
Communism IS leftist politics. I don't think you'll find an analysis anywhere that describes communism as anything but left wing.
there's nothing "ironic" about the discussion, this would only apply if we were comparing 2 like/similar things, and we aren't. it is acceptable to use communism to discredit others because it is morally, ethially, and economically reprehensible. misuse of the term fascism, has nothing at all to do with the correct usage of the term communism.
it's got nothing to do with me disagreeing or not, this would be the case whether I was even born or not. if I didn't exist at all, this would still be the case.
