I'm not that big of a capitalist. As I remember it, Soviet Communism wasn't killed by us capitalists, and China isn't too pure in its Communism anymore. That leaves a few looney farms like North Korea and Cuba.<quoted text>
Wow. what an evil joke. Your strokes are in humane. Perhaps you're an example of the necessary evil in this society. The pure capitalistic freedom of the invisible hand that has been proven to be dysfunctional in an economy when encouraged in almost full swing because it causes collective dementia and senility. That's when the age of pure innocence ends. Way to ruin the fountain of youth.
What I see is closer to a decision between self-policing Democracy, or a rule by an aristocracy. If the Soviets were a Communist ideal, it would have succeeded or failed based on the ability to self-police. It seems that China is putting us and our democracy to the same test now, and we are spending ourselves into collapse, just as the we did to the Soviets.
Is it all part of a plan? I can't say, but I do know that people are far more interested in instant gratification so I see the aristocrats winning the chess game, but they may pay for it with eventual revolutions.
With that in mind, I'd like to think that the youth should have something to believe in, but expect hard times. They're a'coming!
