This is an empty, pointless gesture intended to froth up the right. As Jennifer notes below, it’s also intellectually dishonest, ignoring how other systems also kill people. In our current capitalist hellscape, people with diabetes die because they can’t afford insulin. Children die because their families can’t afford medical treatment. According to some numbers, 1 in 5 children in the US experiences food insecurity, and 62% of teachers have reported students coming to school hungry, while we throw out or waste (according to the USDA) 30-40 percent of the food that we produce. While Communism is deeply flawed in many ways, it is just a system. How it works comes down to the people involved. Capitalism is just as guilty of deaths, but it is forgiven as long as those deaths are profitable.
