I find that tough to believe, given his high standard of living and benefit 
from free markets.  Shouldn't a communist live a moderate lifestyle and give 
the rest to the poor and/or charities?  Seems to me that if he really believed 
in communism he would have lived his life that way, especially considering 
Pete's commitment to personal values (see Meher Baba).
