Peace, justice, equality. Things Americans are proud to die for. But Communism?  They don't even want communists around them, let alone die for their system. But why? If people actually read the Communist Manifesto, perhaps they'd find out that their government was tricking them. That they were being lied to. That the people who have been ripping them off and exploiting them are now scapegoating and forwarding hate and aggression to innocent people who want the best for their citizens.
I'm of course going to refer back to Red Terror of the 1950's. The US was blacklisting accused Communists and doing inhumane things to them, but why? Because people don't do research. True, Joseph Stalin, the man who carried out the Purges and Five-Year-Plans of the 1930's, was a communist, but the things he did weren't for communism. But Communism, as set down in the Communist Manifesto, has nothing to do with what Stalin did.  And the US government would've known that if they read the book.
Perhaps it was because the 1950's was a hard time for the US government. After all, the civil rights movements were going on and they didn't want everyone to be against them. Otherwise large revolutions would be a possibility. Perhaps they saw what had been happening in Soviet Russia as a way to turn that hate on someone else. It was somewhat well played, but since Joseph Stalin died in 1953 and the Red Terror went on past that, they were then hating Khrushchev, who was actually doing good for people. They could've turned that hate on someone far more deserving.
I guess all I'm saying is, know exactly who you're hating and why you're hating them. Some kid called me a "greedy communist" a while back. If I'm so greedy, why do I want equal distribution for everyone, including me? If someone hates on communists, know that they probably don't even know what we stand for and what our principles are. That being said, feel free to educate them on the matter.

Not trying to hate but the first thing people think of when they hear communist is either Stalin of Kim-Jong Un. Both of them aren't very pleasant people. If you want to help the communism movement find leaders that have done good and praise them and bring awareness to the public of what they've done. ~ C

"If I'm so greedy, why do I want equal distribution for everyone, including me?" 

You're greedy because you're hoping to achieve your goals with wealth you didn't create, looted at the point of a gun.

You don't seem to understand what I'm saying at all friend. And pardon me, but please don't act like you actually know me when, in fact, you don't.

I don't have to know you to know the moral premise your views rest on.  Unless you had a hand in creating the wealth in question, you have no right to decide its use and disposal.

Americans today are much different then the ones who fought for the ideals you listed, yes, americans still die today in the belief that their imperialist ventures may somehow "save" freedom, but this is still approximately 1 percent of the population. instant gratifcation is the biggest enemy of true freedom and even more so independant thought in the united states. many US ciitizens refuse to accept many of the truths about our own govenment and the way it acts around the world, and that's not even touching on economic systems that the US education system teaches "is a good idea on paper but doesn't work in real life". i was in my nation's capital the past two days and i was struck by some of the ideas that are carved into the rock of these great monuments and museums, but then right outside is a gift shop trying to get you to spend money on the capitalist system. i have some more to say on this, but i'm planning on writing a peice and submitting it myself, it's high time i did it anyway.
