Another thing, those who use the term "communist" mostly don't know what they're talking about. "socialist" is lumped into that designation as well as other unpopular ideas. It is used as a catchall perjorative by abusive people. Now it is being replaced by the all-inclusive "terrorist" or as more commonly pronounced today..."terrist". Ignorance abounds.

Actually Frank, I find that the word "liberal" is being used nowadays the way that "communist" was used in the 1950s.
