Not to interrupt your communism discussion, but point 10 is bullpoo, nuclear plants can not explode like an atomic bomb.

They can explode for conventional reasons (steam pressure, hydrogen) and spread radioactivity, but never create an explosion "10X bigger than Hiroshima".

Then you agree, they never practiced true Communism.

This was @MrPeabody's link:

This is the links link, the quoted info is on the bottom left of page 24 not 34, sorry hit the wrong button, its dark in my room because the light bulb is out.

And this is the Links links misrepresented source "A true discourse of the present state of Virginia". (Reprinted 1957) You can access it on the left column. The type of government is on page "xv" and the quote is on the next page "xvi."

The Colony's manpower was divided into bands of fifteen, each under a captain. The council would then elect a president.

Captain Ralph Hamor was noting the wonderfulness and exuberance of each citizen to have finally received any food from crops after being attacked and having several gory battles with the Indians, finally taking their land. They would work as hard as they could to survive. Not the benefits of a new economic system.

Infact when Captain John Smith became the colony`s leader in September 1608, the fourth in a succession of council presidents and established a "no work, no food" policy.

@MrPeabody was correct in his review of his link, but his links linked information was incorrect and politically charged, leading to misconceptions down the line.

Ok I read the link @MrPeabody gave and the link this link gives. Apparently the same lines he quoted at Thursday, May 23, 2013 9:19:36 AM were copy and pasted from the original political document on page 34. It references Captain Ralph Hamor's "A True Discourse of the Present State of Virginia"

James town was not a communism but a council government of 15 captains.

The whole quote is:

"When our people were fed out of the common store and laboured
jointly in the manuring of the ground and planting corn, glad was that man that could slip from his labour, nay the most honest of them in a general business would not take
so much faithful and true pains in a week as now he will do
in a day; neither cared they for the increase, presuming
that howsoever their harvest prospered, the general store must maintain them, by which means we reaped not so much
corn from the labours of twenty men as three men have done for themselves."
