I see so many peeps on social media sites or whatever, young and ignorant calling themselves unironic communists or whatnot or even socialist. I even have friends who call themselves Marxist-Leninists or Anarcho-communists. Do they not realize that communist systems don't work in practice over the dozens of countries that have tried it and thus through trying failed? Why are they so deluded as to think that it'll actually work one day?

I think it's a combination of many things but primarily, it's trendy. You will not be destroyed online in most places for praising communism and since it's also "cool" it's free upvotes/likes/dopamine-icon.
If you ask them what communism is they will probably tell you it's equality for all, free healthcare, free education, public transportation, a fair government, and then some. ALL positive traits. Ask them to name one problem with communism or whatever flavor they've decided to champion and they won't be able to.

They don't look into history nor do they care what you have to say. When they say communism is cool they get dopamine-icons and that's that.

I think the KGB defective Yuri Bezmenov talked about 'useful idiots' and how they become said 'useful idiots'. I'm not too sure, thought I do know that communism seems cool and radical, as it is seen the enemy of big bad america. Or something I'm not a histologist.
It's really nuts how people think it's counter-culture to be commies or better yet "socialists" in today's America. You have the public support of many elites, political and otherwise, and companies will pretend to agree. Academia will give you tons of resources to help spread the good word and those who are against you are silenced and demeaned at every turn.

What gets me is how all of the elites are so invested in stepping towards communism.

They want control.
To expand on this a bit, several of the young people I know that consider themselves Communists are also coming from wealthy families with parents that spoiled them and more or less gave them everything they wanted. They expect to get what they want with minimal effort and expect to be treated like royalty. I'm not about to say they are bad people, they're just very confused about how the world works. And some of them have severe self-esteem issues and are probably trying to make up for some perceived sin they have committed.

Many of them are definitely narcissists, hence the feeling that they could solve all of these problems if only they were given complete control.

They have convinced themselves that they are restoring fairness to society because the income and wealth disparity between the richest and the poorest is so vast that it is impossible to conceptualize. Now. There are obvious problems that arise from this imbalance of resources and it makes many people ripe for abuse. That's why, if you are short sighted, the obvious thing to do is to just take from the ones that have the most and redistribute their wealth to the poorest ones among us. They want an easy solution to a very complex problem.

Most of these people have nothing that they're good at, so they think they get shit for free from a communist goverment. But a communist goverment actually wants to use everyone as labour, no matter how pointless or unfullfilling that labour is supposed to be.

That's why east germany had almost no unemployment, but was constantly bleeding money.

Tbh? Autism.
But seriously they buy into most ideologies 100% when it's socially acceptable in their circles or social media+enablers/yesman. They really think communism means little to no labor because it's a community effort or some gay shit. Mfs who make posts like this are always the mfs expecting to ride off of other people's labor when and if these "communities" ever form despite how much they preach about equality they don't give or have anything of value, just take what others have built upon for themselves. And yes of course they're mostly Americans <3.

Was Drake not good enough? They had to use Geordi out of no where and also make it worse somehow?
However, with Star Trek in mind, I'm surprised it's not referenced more as to how that's what communism/socialism is or something. Everyone gets what they want, they all work jobs they want, human advancement is at unprecedented levels both technologically and culturally.
I guess commies aren't watching Star Trek or something because I could see them referencing it as the go-to fiction instead of Harry Potter if they had a mind to. Granted it wouldn't make sense because Picard speeches aside that isn't even how the Trek universe works, but I can see people arguing it.

It's because he can be considered problematic, he invited a 17 yr old on stage once and kissed her, and the whole being friends with Millie Bobby Brown stuff so that's more than likely why.

Sorry I don't know anything about Star trek so I wouldn't know or if social media communists do enough to argue about it other than it's a quirky reaction image.
