After re-reading the post I realized you might have been being facetious. Well if that is the case I hope you are not insinuating Russian communism and Marxism are the same simply because of the title of a book. If you were not being sarcastic then please disregard the second part of this post.
Not being sarcastic at all. I went to amazon.com and bought The Communist Manifesto, The Capatilism Manifesto, The Wealth of Nations, and The autobiography of Ben Franklin. When (if ever) I'm done with these I'll be sure to pick up Leviathan. I want to get involved in politics as a career when I'm older.

This thread was good until about the second post when the question was answered and there's nothing left but to reiterate what's already been said.

Hmmm, if you were straight would you still be a Liberal? An Atheist? Why not just get a Joan Crawford avatar? Bug in your bush, indeed.....

Anyway, if human nature allowed Communism to work, we wouldn't be having this chat would we? After all, most technological advances through history, including the internet, are products of man's competitive coveting nature. Oh wait, Al Gore invented the internet to save the trees..... nevermind...

How dare you make a mockery of Gregory Peck! I would challenge you to a duel to the death but it'd just be too easy seeing as you're old, fat, and decrepit.

Not to ruin any of your fun. But as a socialist i thought i woudl drop my 2 cents into the hat. Communism doesnt work at all becase it requires complete abolition of goverment in a sense creating a organized anarhcy where technically all things will govern themselves through economic need. In a quik word it will never work i say never cuz it has nevr been tried dont get communism confused with socialism.

captailism doesnt work we are now learning this whetehr u want to admit it or not the role of goverment is to provide good for all people and that simply cannot happen as long as captailism exists. i.e. teh healthcare industry we have learned that greedy people cannot control teh welfare of human being becuz they will just use there powers ot exploit thier customers for more money. the evr growing deficiet and growing number of white-collar criminals is a sign that greedy men will do all they can to get richer very few rich men in this world are not greedy. but the point is that all captailist nations are actually introducing socialist practices i.e. national healthcare. recently russia just took back control of the largest oil company in russia because that was in the best intrest of teh citizens of teh country. frane gret britain and germany have had socialist practices concerning healthcare and labor for a very long time but because they have not out and out called it socialism they have gone under the screen. evryone knows of canada's socialist healthcare and its sucess but at teh same time a few failures have been found but no where near teh problem of privitzed heathcare in teh us.

cuba has fanatastic healthcare and education soem of teh problem is emabrgo some of it is teh fact that castro keeps sending it to otehr "revolutionary forces" the food that is. castro isnt a fantasic guy buy u cant be all that fantastic if you are going to make teh system work.

in conclusion if u look at teh hard facts and what a socialist nation can do when they can have open trade on an international scale i imagine it will be sucessful becuz whther u like it or not countries are still goign to adopt socialist practices because of the fact that it fulfills there roll to serve teh good of ALL PEOPLE.

also all people shoudl read das kapital by marx just to have a better understanding of a the captailist system and how it worx.

i know i wondered but hey thas my 2 cents,

chris
