Sorry. Can’t resist–but if it makes you feel any better, I think that the communism is a crock, too. I just don’t have a catchy image for it, and nobody wants to look at pictures of Soviet gulags.

About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

    As an intellectual exercise, the idea of libertarianism and all that freehold blah blah is fascinating, but it breaks down when exposed to base human impulses. Just like communism. I find the correlation fascinating–all those interesting ideas negated because a bunch of guys want to join a country club and lock the door behind them. The error of libertarianism is that people of means think that they’re special, when the truth is that the cream rises. An economy will always generate strivers–but not without laborers/consumers. Communism invariably leads to an exclusive leadership class who come to believe their exceptionalism is innate, rather than situational. I’m a Bull Moose aficionado myself–free market capitalism tempered by social conscience. Ha!
