Now that it has been conclusively proven that communism and right wing activism could reflect an amicable match for the long run, the ideological barrier would be even thinner.

I, for one, always thought of communism and capitalism as different faces of the same coin, separated only by their thin and veiled ideological difference. Now, as physics would say, it is always an unstable equilibrium if you try to balance a thin coin on its rolling side rather than putting one face up. This then, for me describes the antipathy for each other. You could hate it, but to dispose it off totally would mean to dispose off the entire coin.

As with all isms and dogmas, the substance is always lost in details and petty fights over ideological higher ground. The same applies to this also. The success rate of capitalism is higher because of its larger number of applications. And to top that, the eternal proverb of “power corrupts people, absolute power corrupts absolutely” could always use communists as the best example. People might find some exceptions, but then, argument would be “exceptions prove the rule”.

On a less serious note, capitalists don’t realize that they are easy preys. The biggest disadvantage that any theist has is the fear of losing the faith of god or religion. The capitalist fears the loss of wealth, either materially or physiologically. Hence, with a little bit of calculation, they could be won over.

I am not at all surprised that it took a communist to ultimately win the battle.

To be honest, you would always require a matchbox and a match stick to ignite a spark and in the event of failure, it is not always the stick which is at fault. It becomes easier to blame the stick and throw it away as it has a lesser shelf life, hence lower ROI. And the winner takes it all.

P.S1: Very happy that some really good things are happening and communists are at the forefront (no pun intended).

Politically the war might have been lost; the social battle might just be able to reinvigorate it.

P.S2: The only problem with communists is that they are the most predictable non conformist.

"Now that it has been conclusively proven" ... what has proven this?

"I am not at all surprised that it took a communist to ultimately win the battle" ... what did he win? He assumed what he was not or could not be!

"some really good things are happening and communists are at the forefront" ... examples please!

"The only problem with communists is that they are the most predictable non conformist" ... true, even with their ideologies :)

You liked it ? I couldn't help but pen the thoughts as they came in the middle of the night.

You couldn't get the idea at all. Hirok did. He could well explain all your queries.

Agreed. There is no difference between the left and right. Their talk(ideology) differs. But their walk(will) is the same in the end.

The unwritten but latent policy of both is one of 'rent seeking'. The getting of the products of the labour of others, without giving your own in exchange. Modern day slavery and dependency culture. It needs no bonds, except for a piece of paper, protected by the people, saying "This Is Mine!"

The result is the enslavement of the people, through ownership of the factors of production, by either the state or the individual entity, it makes no difference. Neither care for the community in general. Only self-love matters.

So, its a false battle between left and right. The hypocrisy on both sides leaves the one they should unite against - the owner of Mother Earth - laughing in the face of both.

Notice how in any election, even within a democracy, both the left and the right are fully co-opted well before the ballot.

Notice how this is the case when power is in the hands of the people, or tyranny.

In the end, the hypocrisy of the people in general, at the individual level is root cause. The love of the self, before others.

There is a test for proof. When you next find a quiet moment, look deep inside and investigate your own heart. Ask yourself:

"Do I love myself more than others?"

"Could I forgive any kind of debt at all?"

This test applies most of all to the 'Planet Savers'.
