Report Friendship with a Communist in Relationships, Love, Sex, Romance Posted October 12, 2011 I think it’s good to have friends with opposing viewpoints, and since consistent communists are atheists, you’re not going to run into that brick wall called faith. This relationship ought to give you an opportunity to deepen your own understanding of philosophy; one can learn a lot through teaching and the back and forth of debate. This of course assumes that he doesn't steal from you, then justify himself as P.G. Wodehouse's Psmith does: "Merely practical Socialism. Other people are content to talk about the Redistribution of Property. I go out and do it." I am not sure what is worse though....that brick wall called "faith" or that infinite pool called "spirituality" which he definitely subscribes to.
