If everyone is equal why do people have to obey capitalists or be killed? If people started taking everything they had a right to the cops would come in and gun them down. Obey or be killed is pretty much the deal everywhere you go.

Liberal capitalism advertises a belief in the concept of equality under law. It does not deliver any form of equality. Not equality of opportunity, not racial equality, not equality under the law for the poor and rich.

Communism advertised worker control of the means of production, and a withering of the state. It did not deliver. The vanguard morphed (as was entirely predictable) into an elite, and no attempt was made to turn over the means of production to workers.

They are not. Communist totalitarianism is merely proof of this fact they wish to deny.

"Brainwash" them? "Force" the slave supporters to "Obey" the state that goes against slavery?
