Am I a Communist?

Communism (from Latin communis – common, universal) is a revolutionary socialist movement to create a classless, moneyless, and stateless social order structured upon common ownership of the means of production, as well as a social, political and economic ideology that aims at the establishment of this social order. (


I believe the state (government) is a God ordained institution with inherent rights, duties, and limitations. I abhor government ownership of production due to the inherent inability of an interested party (as government ownership would entail) to promulgate an unbiased regulatory environment or to cultivate necessary change and persistent creativity. I revere American democracy, the Bill of Rights, and the primacy of the market economy as an economic engine.


I am a communist in the sense that I hold that a classless society is ideal—a society as in America where the goal is liberty and justice for all concurrent with an ethos of mutual equality and respect. I hold that capitalism is a necessary economic engine though it is insufficient in itself to secure economic justice for all due to the inherent vulnerabilities of labor and its inability to secure a distribution of wealth in accord with the realities of labor productivity.
