why not socialism2005-03-24 19:52:22kris


I think we should just forget all of these taxes and switch to something that is both simple and fair. Socialism is simple because the government is the one that pays you! There's no taxes, you don't have to waste one minute on filing taxes. You also don't have to worry about losing jobs, there is no unemployment under a socialist system. This isn't the real reason to go socialist, though, there are other larger economic implications that must be looked at. Today, our entire economy is based on corporate logos. We are supressing growth in third world countries by forcing them to comply to our corporations' buying prices and wage rates, all so American CEOs can enjoy 10,000% profit marks. This is not capitalism, this is corporatism. Socialism fixes all of this by creating a planned economy so that production can be tweaked based on the needs of the people, not the other way around.
