Christian communism predates secular communism
I added Christian communism because of articles linking to this category which had previously only addressed secular communism. A previous editor removed the introduction to Christian communism which then rendered the page devoid of meaning since Christian communism predates the version inspired by Karl Marx and those who came after him. While some may have a religious POV that cannot understand the interpretation of Christian communism, that is only a POV, one interpretation. The purpose of this encyclopedia is to document all articles that belong on Wikipedia and part of that documentation requires placing articles in various categories. Clearly the subject of communism covers all forms of communism whether religious or secular and the religious interpretation came long before the secular version. It could easily be argued by others that no reference to Soviet communism should be included since the USSR had deviated from the original intent of Karl Marx and therefore since communism did not really exist in the USSR, no articles about the USSR should be linked here. Removing or deleting a valid explanation is merely pushing a POV which is not in the spirit of Wikipedia. I am not stating that the wording that I have written is the perfect explanation, but it is far better than no explanation. I welcome discussion (if necessary) on this subject, but please let us not engage in a form of censorship by attemped deletion. Thank you. MPLX/MH 23:28, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Class Warefare Redirect to Class Conflict Falls under the Communism Project??
Since when does Class Warefare fall exclusively under the domain of Communism?? It happened in Rwanda, it happened in Aristocratic France and it's happening in Plutocratic USA now. Brandishing the graphic of the Soviet hammer and cycle with a red star is the fastest way to communicate that this is an exclusively Communist idealistic struggle. Which it's not. The Upper class (Rich) are just as responsible for Class Warfare (redirect: Class Conflict) as the Proletariat. From the Proletariat to the Rich, it's the struggle against financial repression shared by billions around the world. That is not the definition or exclusive domain of Communism. I've added the article to the group on "Capitalism" so as to balance out the article until further agreements can be come upon.--XB70Valyrie (talk) 21:37, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
