Classical communist is the new classical liberal!

“[Communistic] societies...succeeded in accumulating considerable wealth” books.google.com/books/about/TH…
This is from 1875, when the meaning of “communist” was still in flux. It referred both to people living in communes (opt-in societies) and to the Marxists / trade unionists who ultimately took over the label.

But “commune” still retains its meaning today.
The pro-business classical communist still exists today, in the form of Israelis who built multinationals like Netafim out of their kibbutzes. calcalistech.com/ctech/articles…
