    If your country is a practicing Capitalist democracy do you think its time this sort of ideology be banned from Universities as this could be really undermining the constitution and the Nation?

    I am not sure about the laws in the USA about Political parties but in my country Communist groups and political parties have long been tolerated by the government and have been accepted as a legit political platform since the early 90s.

    Now the Communists have really taken over the government because the people have already been brainwashed by communist professors from universities.

    No. I think that diversity has clearly been murdered by the liberals in the universities, and that this needs to be rectified immediately. This is just another example of where liberals believe in liberalism until it isn't in their best interests.

    One wonders if investing your energy into causes against your own interests is ever possible, and by virtue of that thought, if liberalism is by definition designed to evolve into the fascism we're seeing (while unchecked capitalism/libertarianism is by definition designed to evolve to an oligarchy such as the one that exists).

    What would be the basis for such a ban? It's easy to find a reason for Nazism, but Communism, in its purest theoretical form at least, isn't advocating anything that's universally recognized as destructive and evil.

    The universities took the SJW, the universities die by the SJW.

    Build up new institutions and make them SJW proof, with rules that kick them out ruthlessly whenever they rise their ugly heads. It can be done and it has been done.

    There are these regressive neo-liberalists that I think you would get along just fine with.

    If they undermine national security by proposing certain laws to be repealed like certain communists groups protesting againts millitary modernization.

    Or groups that spread negative propaganda about allied countries that are capitalist while openly favoring unconstitutional trade deals with communist countries that will only benefit the communist superpower.

    Going by that logic, you would have to ban more than just communists. With the right approach, any given thing can be turned into a national security issue, which could potentially result in uncontrolled ban rampages that suit the best interests of those in power.

    I dunno, I'm not overly concerned with it. The Dread Ilk of Vox Popoli and the Vile Faceless Minions of the Evil Legion of Evil are working on some, too.

    Nope. Even stupid people should have freedom of thought.

    No if they dont break any laws, also students should be expose to all ideas in Universities.
    We also have the saying if you are not a socialist when you are 20 you have no heart, and when you are still a socialist when you are 35 you are an Idiot.
    I was never a socialist but I had different views when I was 20. And the few people I know that were involved in socialist groups back in university, are mid 30 now with a mortgage, family, driving a soccer mom SUV and try to climb the corporate ladder.
    Reality will catch up to the ideology, as long as they are not violent I dont see an issue, let people make their experiences.

    The best way for people to find out how foolish of an idea Communism is, is to put it out there for everybody to see.

    Communism is more of a threat when it operates under-ground.

    Not a chance in hell. Who would enforce that kind of ban and exactly how would you define a ban such as that? Communism and socialism were basically just re-branded as "liberalism" here in the US, so do we ban that school of thought as well? Where does it stop before you realize you've literally introduced a strict form of thought control and have basically become communists / socialists?

    Horrible idea. Commies are some of the worst but I hate the thought of banning it from colleges or any other institutions.
