For a long time many believe that communism is an evil form of government that must be permanently ended worldwide. The following are some reasons for supporting this viewpoint.
1 – greatly devalues human life – often it is extremely oppressive to its citizens, perpetrating great atrocities and human rights violations against them
2 – does not allow for a robust economy thus the vast majority live below middle class standards
3 – does not allow for personal or social expression or development thus citizens can not advance or be creative – no freedom of the press, no artistic, scientific, or technological creativity or progress
4 – greatly devalues private property ownership – does not allow citizens to own private property
5 – greatly devalues justice and the rule of law – does not allow fairness/justice or freedom/liberty for its citizens – thus citizens do not have basic civil or criminal constitutional rights like the right to an attorney or free speech
6 – fosters great political repression in many ways
7 – consolidates great power in the hands of a few democratically unelected officials who often have an immoral/unethical if not totally evil agenda
8 – permanently places the interest of the state ahead of its citizens – government is not accountable to its citizens
In light of these extremely negative characteristics it boggles the mind as to why anyone would support such a governing system. History repeatedly teaches us such regimes always fail and eventually die out leaving the country in turmoil and in very bad condition.
