Communism Is Great As Long As You Are One of the Commissars

Those among us who actively support and champion the tenets of communism for the masses all have one thing in common, they all assume they will be one of the commissars.

Take Elizabeth Warren for starters, on The View:

“Two-cent wealth tax on the top one-tenth of 1 percent, your 50-millionth and first dollar, and with that we can cancel student loan debt for about 95 percent of the people who have it,” Warren said. Her fans cheering, Warren added, “Oh, but we can do so much more…”

And here it is, more!

1) Universal tuition-free technical school, two-year college, and four-year college;
2) Taxpayer-sponsored child care for every child aged 0-5;
3) Universal pre-K for every 3- and 4-year-old; and
4) Higher wages for every child care worker and preschool teacher,

All this how? Warren held up two fingers. “Two cents,” she said.

Something new in the world of economics, the two cents solution*. Somebody should seriously look into that.

Then we have the economic genius of AOC, who doesn’t even need two cents to give us her two cents worth. The woman who would be the spiritual, political, and fiscal leader of the New Millennial Age now lives in an unnamed luxury apartment building in the District of Columbia's expensive Navy Yard neighborhood. So who better to lecture us on how the economics of real estate should work.

“What we have been taught and what we have been conditioned (to) is that basic rights are a luxury and a privilege when they are not.”

"Another world is possible," she said. "We can live in buildings that are not-for-profit, or tenant-owned, there are so many ways we can slice this and we can structure it in a way where all people have the right to a dignified home."

Some might say she’s just saying this to rationalize having taken up residence in her luxury pad, others claim she is such a fool that she actually believes it. I bend towards the latter.

"I move into this building, and it's marketed as a ‘luxury' building in D.C.," she said. "It's an efficient building, it's clean, it has public space, it has a rooftop garden—y'all watching my Instagram—it has clean air, it has clean water. And I think about this and I'm like, ‘Hm, this is what a luxury building is like.'"

She goes on to say the building is just like the new public housing development she toured. Unmentioned by Ocasio-Cortez, however, is that her current residence offers a lot more than just clean air and water.

The newly-constructed complex, built adjacent to a Whole Foods, also features both an indoor lap pool and a rooftop pool, a rooftop dog park and dog wash station, numerous gyms including a Peloton cycling studio and a yoga studio, a demonstration kitchen with a wood-fired pizza oven, private massage rooms with hydromassage beds, a golf simulator studio, a basketball court, a racquetball court, and a rooftop tennis court with a "parabolic hitting wall" in case you're alone with nobody to play with.

I’m not saying this is where the Jr. Congresswoman from New York is calling home these days (her office wishes not to disclose the actual location due to safety concerns)  but “OMG!” – to quote AOC -  it is a newly constructed apartment complex in D.C.’s Navy Yard neighborhood. And it is adjacent to a Whole Foods with all those rooftop amenities that she thinks everyone should have. How ironic it’s called “The Collective,” no?

I don’t care if these rubes are purposeful or genetically committed to communism they are all enemies of the people and menace in our midst. They must be removed.

“Which is it to-day,” I asked, “morphine or cocaine?”
He raised his eyes languidly from the old black-letter volume which he had opened.
“It is cocaine,” he said, “a seven-per-cent solution. Would you care to try it?”
