John Birch Was Right

This is the new word they've been using behind closed doors now for at least ten years. That's right. It would be hilarious in a Monty Python skit. Except it's really happening. They changed a few syllables and now toss the word around freely all the time. It's really a more accurate translation of Karl Marx's original word.
"How can Iowa be ranked with Mississippi? That's not what I see. That's not the quality. That's not the communitarianism; that's not the openness I see in Iowa," Hillary Clinton told the newspaper then—a remark that prompted immediate criticism from Mississippi Republicans.

I read that article a few days ago and thought the exact same thing!! I must admit that I even had to check if it was real word -- I had never seen it used before, and thought that she had slipped up and almost said "communism", but then caught herself mid-word and changed a few morphemes around.

Noone else seems to notice or care, though. I hate what this country is becoming.
