That's ridiculous, all you have to do is look at every single tribe today and how they share their food. Look at the many cultures worldwide whose dinner table consists of meals everyone shares. Even the Western dinner table is a completely shared experience. Everyone eats from the same pots and pans, and the portions are equal.
#113 - toastedspikes (05/09/2013) [-]
You said the complete opposite. I'm arguing that meals are inherently communal, which they are, and you're arguing they're completely selfish.
Also, you're wrong in saying all animals only care about themselves. This hasn't been an idea since the 1800's and is very obviously observable to be the contrary.

That's the exact opposite of what I'm saying though.
I was arguing that in a tribe of people, immediate family shared with immediate family, and even if someone outside of that group was more "deserving" of food, the family communally cared about themselves. Also, when I say tribes I'm talking Neolithic Era. Cave People.
Also, I'm not saying Animals only care about themselves personally, rather, they care about themselves and those they consider part of their family.

I wasn't really arguing against Communism. I support the idea; rather, I think the problem with Communism in practice is the essence of greed in mankind. People constantly need new stimulus, it's a survival tactic, and desiring more and more, even when they have enough to be perfectly happy, is an unfortunate side effect of that.
#126 - sorrowofdaedalus (05/09/2013) [-]
Perhaps so, but to eradicate greed entirely would be a herculean task. If there is even a seed of it in the right person it can cause way for problems and corruption. That's where communism reaches a problematic point; the only way to rid greed entirely is complete control and suppression. However, complete control and suppression is no longer altruism, creating more of a problem in the attempt to remove it, not to mention that if successful things go down the route of 1984 and no one is ever capable of free thought.

Partial communism, which communists just call communism, is basically exactly the same as "full communism". Except that "full communism" is the utopian version where there is complete absence of class and state structure. It's the same as saying that there is no such thing as ultimate totalitarianism, as there cannot possibly be one person in control of everything. There is always a degree of freedom no matter how small.
#147 - toastedspikes (05/09/2013) [-]
I see your point, and I agree. I'm pretty sure most communists would agree too, but that's not the whole point of communist theory. "Well at least it's better than capitalism".
I do see some charm in market socialism and mutualism though, doing some reading on those subjects atm.
