Contradictions in communist systems


Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Nature:
Inconsistencies in communist systems conflict with its ideals and retard development. They include the denial of human rights under various forms, including: censorship; political and religious repression; closed society; imperialism; elitism; dictatorship and bureaucracy; and more theoretical inconsistencies such as nationalism, the creation of an international system of states, the boycotting and negative participation in existing international bodies, and the non-inevitability of communist revolution which gives rise to the use of force and repression. The net result is instability and conflict, particularly international conflict, and alienation.
Claim:
If we cannot get striaght the rights and wrongs of the struggle between communism and anticommunism, itself perhaps the greatest moral struggle of the twentieth century, then it is hard to see what other issues we will ever be able to address intelligently.
