No True Scotsman and cases where an alternative classification is more accurate

I was thinking about this with the Baader-Meinhof being Anarchist as opposed to Communist, since the two are supposed to support the same result with Communism favoring a lawful abolition of the established government, while Anarchism favored terrorist attacks that would result in intolerable brutality by the state in response. Based on this analysis, the Baader-Meinhof is Anarchist, not Communist. I'm also indifferent on Communism. I don't support it, but I think it could possibly work in some form, the same way basic Capitalism doesn't work. I also don't jump on the bandwagon with the closet Nazis and try to claim that Communism = NazisTM. –Meine Ehere heißt Toleranz (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 15:13, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
