sebtheanimal: The only other thread which I oppose is some pathetic anti-capitalist one, where it is more than clear that Socialism has failed, nevermind communism.

Bumpa: Don't agree about socialism, it has never been properly tested on this planet. What we used to call communism was merely military dictatorship,even further right wing than USA

sebtheanimal: It has been tested throughout Europe. Testing any system in the middle east is pointless as they follow a tooth fairy instead. Communism is a mental disorder and not worth a mention even.

sebtheanimal: I would like to give you many examples. The Trabant vs a Mercedes, Samsung vs famine. That is what communism is and that is what it does. Capitalism is not a 'system'. It is what happens when there is no middleman and nobody to tell you what to do. Socialism is made possible by Capitalism, however it grown like a cancer to unsustainable levels when if feeds on itself. If you think there is someone who knows better than you what you need, then by all means follow it but leave the testing to a laboratory.

Comrade_: "The term police state describes a state in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive."- en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_state

I wouldn't call the US 100% police state.

I've seen 3 threads on Capitalism, neither one promoting communism or socialism.
Um... for the question on whether there was a testing of socialism, you gave as your examples 2 cars. Care to elaborate, I'm also interested in knowing where pure socialism was "tested" in its pure form. [Socialism is an economic model where there is a central planner that allocates the means of production. (Not necessarily publicly owned.)]

Bumpa: i don't follow your examples Seb, however both the companies you mention, Mercedes and Samsung grew to the giants they are under police states. Mercedes in Nazi Germany, Samsung in Korea so what is your point?

YetiFinder: Yes I agree US is a 110 % a Police State besides it is not only a Police State it is also lawyers and judges state. To do small thing first you are asked do u have a lawyer? and every right of people is in Lawyer and Judge's hand. You cannot do anything without lawyer and judges. Inmates are treated like animals they are cuffed and chained in Isolated room for long period and mentally tortured by police.
I wonder what is the Human rights organization doing.
