Communism vs. Human Nature?
Came across an interesting post on Nayma's blog, and I thought it would be interesting for others to check it out too. A bit political for some of you guys, but it's all good...or maybe I'm politically inclined myself. Moving right along, it seemed to an interesting question, firstly, because I hadn't thought of it from this aspect. I guess my views on Communism have been shaped by my understanding of it, which is that it's born of the revolution of the oppressed masses against their greedy, enslaving masters. Maybe it's just because I'm Malayalee and come from a state which is predominantly 'communist/socialist' in its thinking. But human nature? Nope, that never figured in my head for a second. And then I came across this post and thought that the ideas here were intriguing. Check it out for yourselves and let either the author or me know what you think. The Domino Theory anyone?
