A Conversation With Xi – E001 – The Appeal of Communism

Why do people want Communism?  What is its appeal?  What happens to those who support it?  How long has Communism been in America?

This conversation between Xi Van Fleet and Richard the Engineer addresses these questions with history from the Chinese Communist and Cultural Revolutions and applies these lessons to the ongoing American Cultural Revolution.

We learn it is natural for human beings to want the Utopia promised by Communism (which is not what it delivers).  We learn why Xi and Richard aren’t bothered by voluntary communes.  Richard has his mind blown by the lack of a class system in Chinese villages before the Communists implanted it.  Xi delivers a strong warning to those who explicitly or implicitly support Communism, even if their reasons for doing so are understandable.
