If you guys claim that you are communists or at least you support communism, then why you don't build cooperatives?
If one million communists put $10 each, you get $10 million to start with. You can start with some cooperatives where you create some jobs, you learn to work together, and then you invest the benefits into expanding and creating more jobs. You can start with basic things like agriculture for example. You will also find generous sponsors, I'm quite sure that rich communist supporters like Michael Moore will support you either with money or with publicity.
Other people can build successful cooperatives, why you couldn't do that too? If one million of your supporters will donate $1 / month, you get $1 million / month. There are plenty of opportunities for you to build and expand cooperatives.
But even before creating cooperatives, you can start working together, doing some things that don't even require any money to start with. Like for example cleaning the streets. Or anything else that brings you together and where you work together, learning to cooperate. Or you can create your own encyclopedia. But there are many other things you can do together.
The fundamental piece of communism is the cooperative. If you refuse to do that, that means that one day you will put someone in power, and that person will become a dictator, and he will enslave and terrorize the people in the name of the communism, like for example in Cuba, Russia or North Korea.
I am not a communist, but if you would do a good project, creating some cooperatives that actually create jobs and build something positive, I would support you.
You must do something because just complaining never solves anything.
