not very likely, taking into account that browsers have been waging war against self-signed/free certificates for a while and the "warnings" are getting worse with every release (I, a geek, had a hard time finding the tiny "add an exception" in Firesloth^H^H^H^H^Hfox 3, and found it impossible to explain over the phone how to do it to someone not so computer literate)

Communism is the polar opposite of capitalism.
... unless, like a lot of Americans, one equates capitalism with corporatism (a.k.a. oligarchy), which is not that far away from communism: both mean the economical and political power are concentrated in the hands of a small number of people, which dispose of it as they please and can't be held accountable for their actions; in other words, communism is man exploiting man, corporatism (American implementation of capitalism) is the other way around.
