I should have gotten into this debate a while ago with you, but had too much stuff to do. But what I mean to ask you is this:

In any Communistic nation, a strong central government is neccesary to ensure equal distribution to everyone. This sounds good in principle until a not-so-hot leader arrives and messes things up (i.e. Stalin.) Say what you will about American interference and barbarism, it pales in comparison to the atrocities the Soviet government inflicted upon its own people.

What is better? To have 80% of the wealth under the control of 10% of the population (capitalism) or to have 100% of the wealth under the control of .000000001% of the population (Communism.) You call that an improvement? We're still dealing with subjective humans here. People don't handle supreme power too well.
