Debate Question

Is this even allowed?

So I was looking through the spots related to education etc. and I found there was actually a spot for communism!

First I thought it was a joke, but those people really believe communism is a good thing!

Now my question; is this even allowed? I mean not legally because of course it is otherwise it wouldn't be a spot.

But is it socially acceptable to you?

Yes. For starters, Fanpop is not designed around Things Bri Likes/Agrees With/Is Okay With. There are other people here, with different views and backgrounds. They aren't always going to mesh with mine. If I don't like a spot, I don't join. It's very simple.

Besides, there is good in communism. You not agreeing with it doesn't change that fact.

Of course! Communism is, at least theoretically, a reasonable system of government that some might consider to be better than those that are currently available. And why not? There's no harm in a bit of conversation about it. One could reasonably argue that a communist society can be a good society, just as one could argue the merits of a fascist society.

Communism is a political belief, just like the labour and conservative parties, or whatever parties there are in your government. Just because you don't agree with their beliefs doesn't mean that their voice should be silenced.

I really don't care what political ideology other people adhere to. Be it communism, nazism, black suprmacism, social darwinism, or any other radical schools of thought.

So yes, having an opinion is socially acceptable to me.

Depends...When you hear communism do you think;

"Someone who believes in equel pay for all"
Or
"Neo-nazis who's on the verge of invading America"?

Because you'd be suprised how many people actually think the latter.

Yes, why wouldn't it be?

(The thing is, communism is more viable than capitalism in many ways... You see, capitalism allows for money to promote a sense of greed, which is apparent, even in society today. Communism deals with that problem, quite reasonably. Anyway, just because you don't believe it is a good thing, doesn't mean that others will see it that way. On the internet, if you don't want people to have a go at you, then you have to be tolerant of what others believe. It is one thing to state why you don't like something, but a whole 'nother thing to say: 'First I thought it was a joke, but those people really believe communism is a good thing!' You probably didn't mean it like that, but communism is not a joke - it could be an important governmental scheme, if society was willing to accept it as such.)
