The trecherous road to Capitalism is frought with perils and must be trodden carefully

We have seen it time and time again, how communism can and does naturally evolve into socialism, and socialism likewise evolves naturally into capitalism.

It is important to first understand that these three systems are economic systems, and not political systems, though they are often used to political ends

Within these three systems there are varying degrees of fidelity to each, with the attributes of the others varying within each of them, as well as different political systems in place within them, depending on the country's creed and culture

The road from communism to capitalism is one of individual ownership, individual responsibilities, government ownership, and government responsibilities all being alloted to varying degrees

Once ownership and responsibilities pass from the government to the individual, they can not be returned without a great deal of injustice like stealing, murdering, etc, as what passes into an individuals realm of ownership and responsibilities becomes the owners property, rights, and freedoms

Thus the success of transitioning from communism to capitalism depends 100% on careful and prudent management by the goverment

Governments prone to corruption, greed, need for expansion, desire for domination, want of world power, etc, will tend to mismanage the conversion and delegation of responsibilities and ownership, and create the most ''free-market'' economic system of capitalism possible, as is the case in America

Such poorly managed systems, where private interests are to dominate completely, perpetuating a downward cycle of greed and lusting for individual gain, become unable to solve the social and economic problems which capitslism will eventually devolve into, as the economic system is directly controlling the political system

Proper management of economic responsibilities and ownership must be done without corruption, greed, power-mongering, nor vying for world domination and endless expansion, or its doomed to certain failure

There must be wise people in charge who can balance the three economic sytems conservatively, in the correct amounts, and without expecting unlimited growth, power, or expansion, and without an eye to greed, gain, or anything other than a well-balanced and socially fair system

Failure to do so, will result in war, anarchy, economic collapse, the suffering of the people, and the dwindling and destruction of a nation

that's a good piece you've penned there, assassin

Yes, they are control systems. Wealth distribution systems. Work is either the primary commodity or the catalyst for mobilisation of other commodities. Either way, the systems are designed to extract it, via conversion into an intermediate form, such as currency.


Governments prone to corruption, greed, need for expansion, desire for domination, want of world power, etc, will tend to mismanage the conversion and delegation of responsibilities and ownership, and create the most ''free-market'' economic system of capitalism possible, as is the case in America


The only point I diverge on is that America was the most free-market. It is now a rigged market, with overwhelming power concentrated into the hands of America's handlers and not the states. America, as it was, remains the best model that has existed. We are well on the road back to feudalism with the Mussolini-like kleptocrats in control.


There must be wise people in charge who can balance the three economic sytems conservatively, in the correct amounts, and without expecting unlimited growth, power, or expansion, and without an eye to greed, gain, or anything other than a well-balanced and socially fair system


No chance of that I think. The free market is the best determinant. Wise people would simply leave it alone and defend the principle. But in a democracy, it is the average person who decides, and the average person is just as greedy as the next.

Although..

One thing that is worth clarifying..

Is the antonym of communism capitalism?

Or is this another masterful ruse, a stooge which disguises a greater truth?

Communism notionally refers to communal ownership and capitalism to private ownership, of the means of production.

But surely, capitalism is not a form of government, as no form of government is required to ensure private ownership, just a legislature.

However, communism is, by definition, a form of government, an administration which thieves from productive workers and gives the fruit of labour to layabouts. Surely, everyone who works in that system, by definition, works for the government?

So, what is the opposite of communism?



Perhaps it is the opposite of "big government".

From what I understand, the Chinese see their system as being a Chinese form of socialism. Will it or should it "evolve" into capitalism? not necessarily

It's my guess that when China becomes more prosperous the people will get more of the benefits you expect to see in a socialist country like universal medical care.

The truth is, most countries are not purely socialist or capitalist. They have elements of both systems. One thing I like about the Chinese government is it seems they are pragmatic and not ideological. They do whatever works the best and is good for the Chinese people.

Universal health care is a bottomless $ pit

Unless limits are put in place right from the start

I suspect ideology is something people cling to when the xit hits the fan, for there is nothing else to hang on to except belief.
