I was talking from poll numbers, where the vast majority of proponents for communism do not come from rural areas but middle class and upper class cosmopolitan areas where these people comfortably live off the backs of others while preaching about the benefits of collectivization in their greed.
On a small scale, such as small tribal or rural communities collectivization can work to some degree, but it is usually done voluntarily and not controlled by any state powers. However, even in these circumstances social mobility is severely limited and you can never prosper any more than the weakest link in the group, since there is a social pressure to share what you have instead of saving it or prospering from it.
Mass supported though? That sounds too much like leftist shilling and lying (which, suprise surprise, is very common among these people) so if you wouldn't mind naming some of these areas i would appreciate it for this discussion.>democrats aren't socialist
maybe the old ones aren't but unless you've been living under a rock the American democratic party has been getting more and more socialistic in their policies by the day.>That's because you are unironically brainwashed by that same left leaning media to hate communism.
mind giving some examples, i don't think the rise of antifa came from nowhere.
