Variations of Marxism have been tried by Stalin, Lenin, Trotsky, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro. Which of these versions would you have us emulate? If you maintain that Western Marxism would be a kinder, gentler version, the power of the state would still be paramount in collecting and distributing universal basic income. Do you believe this power would be executed justly under Donald Trump? In other words, how would you ensure that a just, equitable and compassionate government is in place? Do you even believe this is possible? Why would we be better able to implement a variation of Marxism than all those other countries that have tried it?
