To me the idea itself is better than democracy.
BUT fullfilling it is impossible.

1. Too much power in the hands of too few people.
2. Too much power in the hands of the wrong people.
3. Individuals are made to be subservient to the masses.
4. No incentive to try in life as all needs are presumably met. Those who try get the same treatment as those do not try. That is unfair.
5. Taking risks is punished. No risks, no rewards, no progress.
6. Massively inefficient economics makes the entire system poorer.
7. Always breaks down into totalitarianism.
8. The most corrupt form of government ever devised save Kleptocracy.

I got more if you need them.


That was meant to be a list for commies not for capitalists. ;) :roll:

Right, just like how life was so much better when Hitler, Stalin, and Mao were hanging out in the big house, killing jack-offs left and right.


It’s amazing, they all say the same thing “it was much better under (commie leader name here”

North Korea? Oh lookie here, a dictatorship.
Massachusetts & California are... states, that are part of a democratic republic.
China? Almost as capitalistic as we are.
Venezuela... how suprising! A dictatorship.
None of those countries are actual communisms. They're either dictatorships, "democracies".

I so knew you were going to say that. They all started as communist countries. What is left now is what communism always leads to because its not sustainable. Power corrupts. The exception is China which is big enough to absorb the problems of communism longer and they are engaging in a capitalist economy only to stave off their demise, politically. Apples and oranges.

I really was planning on going off on a tangent for dissing California, but I held back.

Regardless, they aren't Commie countries now. So I take it you can't point me in the general direction of one?
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

Maybe they're on to something. :shock:

I mean, s**t, it's just like our immigrants coming here to America.

"18 million illegals can't be wrong!"

Just replace 'illegals' with your countryman of choice. Applies to any and all.

Well, you are refusing to accept my answer. The countries I listed were/are communist even if they have degraded into dictatorships in some ways. No system on earth is purely one type of system. That never happens. You are demanding an example of a purely communist country. There is no such thing, just as there is no purely capitalist or purely democratic country. All are mixed systems.

The thing is.
The US fears everything that is not american.
That´s what the US is.
American = Fear of everything else
That´s why they mess with other people because they feel they are going to be screwed as soon as they drop guard.
Well that might be true but they have brought it on themselves to start with. :roll:
