I realize that not all OWS protesters are advocates of Communism, for those that are, this is for you.
Communism, while great in theory, is ridiculous and implausible in practice. This is because people need incentive to accomplish anything great. For example, if we lived in a Communist country who would want to go through years of schooling to become a doctor when they'll earn just as much as a janitor? You can't force people to do that. Also, eventually the Communist regime would be overthrown, just as every communist regime has been or will be. China only became quite prosperous when they started moving toward a free market economy. A free market, capitalist economy model is why America is the most wealthy nation in the world. We can NOT move away from that without serious and far reaching repercussions.
