Newly elected far-left Denver City Council member Candi CdeBaca [sic] has stated that she is “excited to usher” in communism “by any means necessary.”
CdeBaca, who won in an upset runoff election earlier this month, said in late March during a candidate forum for City Council District 9:
I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor or resources.
And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new. And I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources, and distribution of those resources.
Encyclopedia Britannica defines communism as a “political and economic doctrine that aims to replace private property and a profit-based economy with public ownership and communal control of at least the major means of production (e.g., mines, mills, and factories) and the natural resources of a society.”
