Is this anything related to "perfect political system"?

I'd love to see 1984 come to life (Ingsoc). Instead, have the proles less of an accessible group.

I don't think it would work amazingly, nor even very successfully. But, I'd like to see how accurate Orwell really was.

It would be called Chunktopia. You can only be a citizen if you would meet the following cirtera:

You are a hot bi-sexual female.
You own a brewery.

Yeh, so all of you cant come. Also, it would be a dictatorship and the laws would be that I am sexed up atleast 5 times a day. Everyone else can go **** themselves.

If I had the magical power to know that my people as a collective whole would not be selfish, I know I would have a communist economy.

So another potentially failing system?

I think Chunk's is even better.

Every system has the potential to fail.

Everything... ever... in the world... has potential to fail.

But Communism, even if run perfectly, will fail to accelerate, adapt, prosper, and advance.

I'll let you guys rattle on a while before I get windy, but for starters I'll quote some 2 Live Crew (who were quoting Eddie Murphy, but the "song" is more inspirational to me) and let the filter do its' job.

Law number one: This is my house, and if you don't like it you can get the **** out.

Believe it or not, I'm not suggesting a monarchy or dictatorship.

I would create a fantastic fusion of systems including some communism. Hows that?

As long as this communism really has nothing to do with Marx's communism, be my guest.

I would implement a highly capitalist, market-driven system with only a minimal central government. For a good read on Austrian Economics (which is whatman Libertarian economic principles are based). Try Herman Hoppe, Democracy the God that Failed. Its a good read though lacking a little logic here and there.

I'd make a new Iraq. And then I'd actually have WMDs and when bush attacks me, I'll use them. Teach that asshat to invade nations with WMDs.

I would set up a tyrannical monarchy, in which I appoint the ruler. The appointed ruler will then terrorize and oppress our people. Drug abuse will go unchecked. Pornography and that damned black man rap music will remain uncensored. A Starbucks will not be on every corner. The masses will then be brainwashed with Anti-American propaganda. We will declare the 4th of July National American Flag Burning Day. Afterwards we will hijack a plane and crash it into Ground Zero out of mere disrespect and declare war on the United States. We will be invaded. My puppet ruler and cabinet will be detained and the U.S. will poor billions of dollars into us to jumpstart our economy and rebuild our country. They will set up a base in our capital of Martyzzle and I will pack my bags and head for Japan. **** my little country, I don't want to be no politician.

The end.

Go Insane Clown Posse! Anarchy rules! I think I'll grow my hair and mutilate my body to fit in with another culture all the while criticizing a different culture for being just that, a culture!
