Well it's not always easy.
For one, you are not allowed to be a Communist in South Korea, though it's overlooked like crazy and it's tolerated more and more as the days go by.

I imagine thats real easy to do, as oppose to being a communist in a real communist country like say Cuba, or North Korea.

At least in a capitalist democracy you can have your cell phones, laptops, and computers (made by large imperialist capitalist companies which strangle the workers paradise with all those choices) to communicate "revolution of the people" with all your communist freinds. You can also drive around in vehicles with actual CD players and airconditons in them (manifactured by humongous decadent corporations which fuel the oppression to a perfect society) so you can visit and go to rallies with your communist comrades.

Ah! ah! that's right.


13th RN, is it really outlaw to be a communist in SK? I thought it changed, I mean ain't it true democracy yet?

I mean I know a country can be fully democratic and still ban the Commies, but you got my point.

The only reason why Communism is banned is because the enemy is communist. To have a communism legal here is to legalize enemy espionage operations and practically raising guerilla forces in the South.
It is banned because it poses a clear and present danger to national security.
However, this ban, the younger generation are trying to get it removed. The conservatives and the older generation are of course in disbelief at the stupidity of these apparently more educated ones.

Topic: Just a question...


I am not being offensive at this moment. SK is a democratic country. A democratic country allows multi-political parties coexist or prascticed with the more influenced one, just like the US. Although hated, Communism is allowed to exist with a tight leash if not controlled, correct me if I am wrong.

Isn't a democratic move to allow Communism practiced in SK? Isn't that democratic spirit we all preach about? Of course, I will aggree of banning Communism if it is trying to muster military and political movements to overthrow the current democratic system.

Topic: So...


NAZI started WWII while Communism often hated, but didn't start that. Just curious about SK situation.

PS No need to drag out Human-Rights problems, plenty of that on other side of fence.

Communism is banned because communist groups will inherantly pose a clear and present danger to the national security of South Korea. How hard is that to understand?
We already have issues of having enemy spies and "recruiting centers" in universities which shield them under the idea of "freedom of thought," so if we bloody legalized everything, we can't even jail the ones we end up catching.
However, seeing the amount of Che Guevara books around, you know that this is a law that's on a very very loose leash. They probably have copies of "The Communist Manifesto" here for academic purposes though I'm not sure because I haven't gone out of the way to actually look for it.
Also if we had a Communist party run, and the idiots voted them into power, we lose the country overnight without a shot being fired. And as you know, in reaction to certain high-shock incidents, people can make some bizzaire choices for president. And in this age of Anti-Americanism and a practically religous fanaticism towards unification, you know what kind of disaster a Communist party could bring.
Basically if you're smart, you'll get rid of the "Shoot yourself" button and that's what this anti-Communism law does.

The Communist did start a war in Korea. I don't think they are hated for no reason at all.

Germany's banning of Nazism is basicly the equivalent of what SK is doing from the Korean point of view, not to mention the present threat which does not exist with Nazism.
So Democracy can still work with a ban a particular sore point from recent histroy.

It's like a democracy that has a gun ban. They ban it because it can become a security and saftey problem. Whether or not you agree with this is besides the point. Basically saying, a democracy almost always bans a few things that another person would see as a "right." etc.
