when marxism goes bad

This isn't an endorsement of either capitalsm or socialism. People think that capitalism beings out the greed in people...

I agree... but I also think that totalitarian socialism brings out the worst as well:

(for those of you too young to remember)

I like socialism... i like the idea of universal health care and such... but there should be a limit... or else you end up with countries like this...

I prefer capitalism... because i'd rather be poor and free to bitch about why I'm poor...than to be shot for disagreeing with the government. Althrough they're both poor systems... extreme marxism doesn't allow for dissent.

Anarchism FOREVER!

In my opinion.

Government should first have it's basis routed in Democracy, I mean pure democracy not a democratic republic... That is everyone's voting and not some bs concerning electoral colleges which really don't make sense and only gurantee that we will either ultimately have a Democratic/Republican president.

Socialistic/Communistic in the sense that as long as members are benefitting from the associated basic welfare e.g. healthcare, minimal housing, etc.. That they should be gainfully employed and not "leaching" off of the system as is really the issue that still persists today.

Capitalism all the way to the market, no trade restrictions, with the exception of that which is harmful (same thing today).

Dunno why everyone just wants one form of government. When really, It'd be so much better to strip the best componenets out of multiple form of governing systems to create one that works instead of bitching and going on... and on... and on... about how social security is going to be running out (Yet still taking the same ol' flawed approach).

Have to think of a new name now. Democapommunialism?

Amen about the true democracy...

thanks for the well thought response instead of the usualy crap I get in here where ppl call me a 'dirty republican' for not bending over the table and letting socialism fuck me in the ass

both systems have their ups and downs...
