Some people take anime seriously and not just a cartoon. Could we actually use anime as a theme for social and poltical stuff. I always wanted to create an anime based on communism. Yeah it sounds silly, but I want to try it out since I saw these socialist plays about denouncing landlords and bougise. Click "watch movie" to see an example of some of the socialist films: http://www.morningsun.org/multimedia/index.html# . Anyways I was also wondering if I could make an anime or manga based on the song and dance epic called the "East is Red." http://www.morningsun.org/east/index.html . Also some Historical anime would also be interesting to make. What do you think about making a Political/Social/Historical anime?

As Karl Marx had said in the last sentence of the "Communist Manifesto,"
"Anime fans around the world unite!"
Create a revolution for anime.

It sounds like a very, very good idea to use anime as a sociopolitical vehicle, communism is a sensitive subject to most though. Though it is in theory one of the most perfect socioeconomic systems ever devised on paper, it has of course in years past been taken and corrupted by the hearts and minds of evil men (e.g. Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung, Pol Pot, etc.)
It was never as Karl Marx intended that his devised system be used in the ways that it was, and to this day Communism remains as a figurative reminder of a bastard child of economic desparity and an unfulfilled dream of economic equality aimed at extinguishing poverty and the capitalist systems which kept the people in that state. All in all it's another example of how human greed and exploitation can ruin a perfectly good and functional utopian system.

"And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the Lord did grin. And the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu..."
