ITT we talk about How the earth is governed
« on: June 10, 2009, 02:59:16 PM »
The first thing I have to say is that this is a very controversial subject, and If I hear anything close to
Quote
OMG COMMUNISTS, SUK MY CAPITALIST NUTZ
I will lock this topic


In History class, a month ago, I got to learn a bit about Communism. Although I do prefer Capitalism,  Communism does have its own strong points, then again, so does capitalism.

Communism
Pros:
Everyone gets paid according to their family size
which means, No social classes and no homeless
Less business competition, everything is run by the government
Cons:
Communism usualy gets out of hand because only one man is put in power, and he fucks it up.
The labor force gets discouraged because there is no real incentive to work (no raise).
and their is no way to become wealthy
Capitalism
Pros:
people are able to become rich, make tons of money and become famous.
More individual rights and freedoms
competition among business leads to lower prices
Cons:
Even though people are able to become extremely wealthy, they may also become dirt poor. due to homelessness, more people are prone to crimes.

Now what If we combine them:
[s:2z8t1656]Capicommunalism[/s:2z8t1656]
For those of you that didn't know, this was a joke.

[s:2z8t1656]The 10 commandments[/s:2z8t1656]
Ok, I get it, bad idea, I was proven wrong.

How would you guys run thing?

You have no clue about communism or capitalism at all amirite, your entire post reeks of some sort of mix of ignorance and idiocy

There have been no communist countries so far, only socialist ones (where socialism would be the stepping stone from capitalism to communism), and you're specifically talking about Stalin, in a way. Trotsky would have probably done a better job but he just had to be too arrogant to actually consider Stalin a threat and hurp-a-durp lol exile lol mexico lol icepick in head

there's a lot more faults in capitalism than you listed, anyways
I mean, the fact that there's individual global businesses that are richer than god damn poland is quite a mess, don't you think

not even going to bother to say anything about "Capicommunalism" and "The 10 commandments" rofl

I'll admit I Don't know too much about communism as I've only studied it for a week, but I was just speaking my mind Tanuki. And I don't think any form of governing has worked at all, every government is corrupted, and from what I have heard every single country is in debt. the capicommunism was just a thought.

explain, I would like to your side of it.

I think that they will work well because they are simple rules, the basics, we don't need anything else.
Quote
I am the Lord your God    
You shall have no other gods before me
You shall not make for yourself an idol
You shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God
Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy
Honor your father and mother    
You shall not murder    
You shall not commit adultery
You shall not stea
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
You shall not covet your neighbor's wife
You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor
And If you think of it almost  every single law ever made is based on these simple commandments

Communism looks good on paper, but execution is horrible due to the human factor: greed.
Capitalism has it's major an minor flaws, but it works as showcased by the United States 200+ year run.
The Ten Commandments... I'm not really educated enough about this one to give an opinion so I'll leave it alone.

Out of the two I know, Capitalism seems to work the best and is proven to.

This topic is boderlining on things we shouldn't necessarily talk about too much.

Keep this topic clean, the moment this topic starts deteriorating is the moment it gets locked and potential warns get thrown around.

 :D  Russian reversal!

If communism should prevail, you have to hope for your leader that he'll be fair. And since communism is a dirty type of government, that would be almost impossible to happen.

Plus, ten commandments are really....VERY HARD TO FOLLOW. You can't live without breaking a SIMPLE RULE. Example is the Sabbath, yeah people are way TOO busy and for that, he can't do that for people with whom he work for/with would be very angry. Remember that people have different principles. They will do what is right. I'm not an atheist but just really this is very hard to follow.

Yeah, I agree with capitalism cons. There you should decide VERY carefully for your life. If not, you'll die in vain.
