But as another poster said - I'm not a Communist, I'm not anything political really. Like it is nearly another 4 years before I can vote, and I've got loads of learning to do before that. And I'm happy to learn from anyone, including you - I was just surprised that you would have a dictator and murderer as your avatar (you don't seem that sort of person).
Okay so allegedly you are just a kid, fine, I'll bear that in mind. Pinochet was a big upset for leftists, consequently they hate him and because they are unscrupulous liars, all of them, they of course put out a very distorted picture. But while there is one communist alive cavorting under the image of truly grotesque and inhuman criminals like Lenin, Mao or Guevara I don't need to justify to anyone why I have Pinochet, a soldier doing his duty to defend his country from evil, as an avatar. If anything he didn't kill enough marxist terrorists.

Like my parents are not rich, but even I go to an expensive private school, and get advantages kids who go to state schools don't get. I don't think that is fair either.
Well there is nothing fair about communism, there is nothing there but lies, the most inhuman misanthropy and crimes of the worst kind. Also I'll suggest there is more to being fair than making everyone the same, in fact making everyone the same is the literal opposite of fair, it's also impossible. That is the path of madness

That is right, that is not being communist, it is being Christian or compassionate or empathic or dutiful. All those things are vices which should get you tortured and killed in the upside down world of the communist.

Crime of that sort has more complex causes than "inequality", and tax funded pseudo-charity is not the only or even the best solution.
