    Communism doesn't work, nor will it, nor should it. You believe in Darwin? I do.

    If you look at the world in a Darwinian way, Capitalism is human nature at work.

    Also, I ask you commies to stop stealing Robin Hood. Robin Hood is a cool literary hero who doesn't force people into re-education camps and force a governmental communism. He's a guy who's fighting against a very corrupt feudal system. Do not equate him with Stalin. Stalin has 70 million deaths to his name.

    He makes a good argument against social charity bundled with economic and political policy.

    Thanks. The guy who did this cute little animation is a critical theorist, and is in his own words, a communist and radical leftist--His own terms for himself.
    In case you're not aware, critical theory, which this guy, the animator, specializes in--It's purpose was to instigate communism through critiquing and undermining the culture--as per it's name, critical theory. Criticizing the culture and offering theoretical alternatives. Basically, the idea was if they couldn't bring on communism through force, they would bring it on by transforming the culture within, making it more comfortable to a communistic way of life--If it begins simply socially or culturally. Look up the Frankfurt School.

    Exactly, those who were stealing from the people. He was also fighting from corrupt people who perverting good institutions--For example the Corrupt abbots and priests. He's not a communist, more a vigilante hero. Communists see themselves as vigilante heroes, but feel this ''heroism'' should be FORCED on the populace as a whole. They feel THEY should become the government because THEY know better. Communism leads to a form of Oligarthy, which is simply a deviated form of feudalism. It all in the end leads to slavery, literal or economic.

    To equate the literary Robin Hood with Marx is incorrect. One supported slavery, the other fought against it.

    Since no form of capitalism has ever occured without some sort of state intervention, then this belief is pure shat.
