Communists and humanity studies go together like Asians and car accidents?
Before writing this, I went through a LOT of late night or early morning, undoubtedly sober, high and drunk discussions with all kinds of people concerning this topic, asking why, and pourquoi all over again, sometimes getting all serious and philosophical about it, most of the time ending up telling racist jokes. Rarely making conclusions. Conclusions and logical reasons don’t interest me here, you can go to Wikipedia or history section of your local library for that. What I want to write about, is what this encounter had to do with me and if it somehow changed the way I perceive the world. Sorry if I disappointed you, but I am not going to talk shit about communists. Not in this article, at least.
I am starting to understand that not one system is perfect for all of us, or in other words, while one girl might seem outrageously beautiful for one person, she can absolutely vomit-freak the hell out of the other one.
So while we all know (from our own experience and what history teaches us) that there is no such term as universal beauty, it is an interesting fact that we, the human race, are so easily and repeatedly, all of us and every one of us struck with the idea of a perfect world. Communism, capitalism, rainbow-style utopia or whatever else you want to call it. An idea so strong and absurd at a time, you stop to think how such a noble cause can be at the end a reason of so many deaths and misery in this world.
