Been telling people those commies are good at what they do. You've got to admit that. What puzzles me is...Why do they desire to control and cause such overwhelming misery in the world? They cannot comprehend the idea of FREEDOM but it always triumphs and will again.

Mark, it's just the 'ol depraved nature of mankind, with unlimited lust for power. There's always been people like this and always will be. In every factory I've worked in, there hae always been some people whose deepist desire is to walk around with a clipboard in hand and enfirce rules, writing people up for the slightest infraction.
Nowdays, these folks tend to gravitate towards government jobs.
In the case of a total takeover, TPTB will have no problem filling the 'controller' slots. They will sell their souls for a clipboard.

The reason they want to inflict all the misery upon the people of this land is because they want those people to come back and ask the All Mighty Government to save them from that misery. The reason I know that -- too much of Lenin readings in my school curricula.
