So, when do the Nordic counties become communist? 240 years of American socialism, and we are not communist.Socialism and communism are two sides of the same (bad) coin. Socialism is but a way station on the road to a communist society.
The quote is from the Bible (2Corinthians 8: 13-15) so I am not surprised you do not know of it, and do not understand it.And your quote is a perfect illustration of your circular logic. "For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened" sounds very reasonable. Then it morphs into "He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack." What the hell is that BS? How is giving one that "gathered little" an equal share of what has been gathered anything BUT easing his burden (since he can lounge around all day watching TV and then take half of what you made while you went to work all day) and in fact burdening the "gatherer?" This isn't rocket science and those two supposedly complimentary concepts are actually quite impossible to reconcile. And this is precisely why socialism/communism always fails - the person supposedly not burdened who ends up in fact burdened by the person who decides to eschew earning his keep catches on quickly and decides to join his leisurely comrade by eschewing production himself.
