    As part of The Socialist Party case, it is getting folk to understand that Socialism/Communism have never been tried and why!As a member in the 80's, I remember we had the same discussion, not using the terms Socialism, Comrade, Communism, ETC ETC because of their tainted misinterpretation, by our fellow workers.If we cannot even get across  to our fellow workers, that these terms have been misused, what chance of getting them to understand and agree with, the need for a differntly orientated Social System?I'll stick with the original terms for now, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

     I use the word "comunism" to speak to people successfully about communism by another name in a form that some people here say is not socialism or communism.  The use of the word "comunism" communicates that it's related to communism or socialism to the average reader and also communicates that it's making fun of communism and socialism to people how have a negative opinion of communism and socialism.  If they have a negative opinion about socialism, then I tell them a story about "comunism" that makes fun of socialism, but also teaches them about socialism.  It fails as an attempt at making fun of communist and socialist with the word mispelling, but it succeeds in explaining the values of communism and socialism using examples story telling. .  read it and comment if you want or ignore it if you only want to read what the true communist have to say.  I wonder If there are any true socialist. I think true socialist are just like the true scottsman that is only a hypothetical person and can't actually exist.  

    No true Scotsman is an informal fallacy, an ad hoc attempt to retain an unreasoned assertion.[1] When faced with a counterexample to a universal claim ("no Scotsman would do such a thing"), rather than denying the counterexample or rejecting the original claim, this fallacy modifies the subject of the assertion to exclude the specific case or others like it by rhetoric, without reference to any specific objective rule ("no true Scotsman would do such a thing"; i.e., those who perform that action are not part of our group and thus criticism of that action is not criticism of the group)
