I agree. This is what I said last time this subject came up...

We also have to be smart about doing this. It's our affluence as a nation that affords us the ability to give a shit about the environment. If we were worried about where our next meal was going to come from or where we were going to sleep tonight we wouldn't be concerned about the environment. Most of us would eat the last spotted owl before we starved to death. So we need to find a way to become more "green" without destroying our economy, because in the long that would be even worse for the environment. Anyone thats ever traveled to a third world country will tell you how much of a dirty shit hole most of them are, because their to busy trying to survive to worry about the environment.

Epic fail.

the marxist theory is actually brilliant. on paper. it is a great read and think all people should read it. However. the one vital area that paper lacks is the human desire to be compensated more for a more prestigious carreer. why should someone be a doctor when you can get the same return for being a garbage man. the bolshevik message was spread using simple to understand phrases because they were dealing with a rural illiteracy rate of +80% and at least 40% in the more metropolitan areas. tell a poor dumb man they will get the same as those superior to him and he will buy into it.

why is it that underdeveloped countries always opt for communism? it is the easiest form of govt to get established and holds the false promise of equality. furthermore it is very attractive to the poor and uneducated. once the paranoia sets in it is all down hill from there.

it is because of the individual will that communism will ultimately fail. history has proven this time and again.
