You revel in all things geeky, whether it’s chilling out and playing your Game Bay or doing the Batdance while watching “Back to the Future II.” You’re a purveyor of pop culture, which is why so many big things happened in your year like the fall of the Berlin Wall and the birth of a pop star that’s kinda famous in 2014. The year I graduated high school. Nice.
The fundamental problem with Communism is that is predicated on the conditions Karl Marx observed in the 1850s not changing. His basic error is that it is not workers vs. owners but rather workers vs owners vs consumers. Under capitalism, the consumers are the market forces that Adam Smith wrote about. The consumers determine what they want, the owners produce what the consumers want, and the workers produce what the consumers want. To some extent, the owners and the workers are also the consumers; Marx’s dialectical materialism is wrong in that it completely ignores the third part of the relationship. Every time Communism is implemented as an economic system it results in disaster because it ignores what people want as consumers and instead implements a command economy that inevitable devolves into a total command economy that collapses under the dead-weight of the bureaucracy needed to attempt to implement it. Central to Communism as a political system is that bureaucracy, and the police state needed to enforce its will and the whims of the bureaucrats. Communism as a theory is flawed; as an economic system it is a disaster, and as a political system it is a catastrophe.

You have a rough exterior but deep down you’re forgiving and kind. You are also highly moral. You’re thoughtful and can see how your actions have an impact on the larger scale. But the hope is that you’re not smoking an average of 20 cigars a day. Great general, but waaay too trusting to be President.
