    Id agree somewhat on your idea...no ones the same and we all have a different skill and limits to how good we are at those skills...we can only do so much...when people are growing in perfect equality...its hard for those who are below the median and annoying to those above the average so it somehow doesnt work out in many cases...it may be a form for the perfect utopia but in some cases it is not..

    It's apparent that those of you who seem to be enamored of communism are too young to know the effects of the Cold War and have never actually experienced communism.

    Tychoides had it right. Communism goes against our basic human desire for improvement and is therefore a doomed concept.

    I see that everyone except Zui totally missed the point of my post, or at least no one has chosen to address the fact that Communism is NOT IDEAL in any sense of the word. I'm so tired of seeing people refer to it that way without any justification whatsoever.

    what do you think about communism i think that if people wouldn't go crazy with it that it is the ultimate form of goverment
    Wow naruto, it must seem you don't pay enough attention in your Government class.


    Let me take a quote from Ludwig von Mises: (Edit which Tych practically summed up)

    "Communism, or socialism, couldn't succeed because it had abolished free markets so that officials had no market prices to guide them in planning production."

    Ludwig also pointed out that everything a society needs like raw materials, work labor, and machinery used in a socialist production is outside the free market. They areowned and controlled by government planners, Which means no one can buy or sell them. No market prices can develop because they aren't exchangable.


    Quote from Bettina Bien Greaves:

    "More than 70 years have passed since the Russian Revolution and 45 years since the end of World War II. Why then do the Russian people still lack adequate housing and many everyday items? Why does agricultural produce rot in the fields for lack of equipment to harvest and transport it? Why are factories and oil fields so poorly maintained that production declines? Because the raw materials, tools, machines, factories, and farms are not privately owned. Without the bids and offers of private owners, prices reflecting their relative market values cannot develop. And without market prices, it is impossible to coordinate production activities so that the goods and services consumers need will be available. That is why Communism fails."
