Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Now there's the revolutionary spirit!  Where do I sign up?  

I just saw this facebook group: Don´t support Communism - Say NO to tap water!

Tap water is putting unfair pressure on the bottled water industry. How are entrepreneurs supposed to compete with practicly "free" (i.e. communist) tap water?

It is a disgrace!

We are also opposed to other kinds of communism:
like downloading movies and music
like freeriding on public transport
like using tax-financed pavement
like eating at home instead of on a resturant (of course if you have a cook employed then it´s OK)
like having sex without any money being transfered

There is no such thing as a free lunch.
There is no such thing as freedom - it comes with a price tag. And if you can´t afford it? Tough shit, dude!

But of course the greatest threat to the free world is tap water. In the words of swedish anti-communist blogger The Badlands Hyena Vomit Titbits:

"The tapflushers [i.e. evil-doers] is living on somebody elses expense"

We all know filesharing is killing the music industry. At the same time tap water is killing the water industry. Without the music industry there will be no music and without the water industry there will be no water.
Human life itself is threatened by communism.
Let´s put a end to that - with any means necessary!

LOL.  Glad to see everyone getting on the same page.

Are there are any democracies that are not capitalist enterprises?  Good luck designing non-capitalist new social structures via our current democratic governance political mechanisms.  Let me know how that works out.

BTW, how brilliant is this?  I don't know who made it, but I'm stealing it.  They don't believe in private property anyway, right?

Excellent timing: I saw today, in my local supermarket, bottles of mineral water at 18 cents for a 2-liter bottle...
