    Default Whenever You Pirate MP3's, You're Downloading Communism!

    Could this be more than just a joke/meme?

    I believe so.

    Well, Communists are big proponents of sharing so I guess there is an ounce of truth in it.

    In my opinion, yes. I use to feel bad when I would illegally download music, but then I was introduced to the show Cribs.

    Should it really be considered stealing? Where I am its compared to robbing an old lady which is ridiculous.

    Hey shouldn't that capitalist guy in the picture have horns and pitchfork?
    money is to politics as fertilizer is to garden weeds.

    One of the things that gives me hope for a Communist future is the popularity of file sharing and the popularity of open-source software. As much as some people are obsessed with Capitalism there are still those who want to share.

    Yes, since file sharing goes against the notion that people can "own" things.
    "From the relationship of estranged labor to private property it follows further that the emancipation of society from private property, etc., from servitude, is expressed in the political form of the emancipation of the workers; not that their emancipation alone is at stake, but because the emancipation of the workers contains universal human emancipation – and it contains this because the whole of human servitude is involved in the relation of the worker to production, and all relations of servitude are but modifications and consequences of this relation."
