28. Um, no
Communist theory doesn't call for the destruction of the middle class. Not sure where you got that idea, but you might read up a little on Communism over the holidays.

And please don't point to the Soviet Union, China, Vietnam or North Korea. They are/were not Communist countries, no matter what the American media told you. They are/were totalitarian dictatorships or oligarchies. And Stalin wasn't a Communist either.
