So we don't have both socialist and capitalist structures set in place here?
Very little if you're referring to welfare/Medicare/Social Security and the likes.

As far as the economy, obviously we are not living in a socialist economy where the workers have own the means of production.

And honestly there's really no difference between the two in my opinion, because there will ALWAYS be a higher and lower class in societies... it always depends on where you are born...
Well you can believe that if you want but as I said in a truly a socialist economy where the workers own the means of production in a true democracy.

The fuck does this have to do with socialism????

Do you know what socialism is?
I believe socialism is a bridge between capitalism and communism... it works great on paper, but it could never happen here... because we live in society where people thrive off of power, and self...


And the central bank, The Fed... That's ran by the government...

This has nothing to do with anything being discussed, let alone your previous thoughts.

^^you didn't respond to anything you just spit out the recycled "communism is great in theory" line that's been used since 1945.

People "thrive" off power and self because we live in a capitalist country.

I said "Socialism is great on paper"... haha... I know the rhetoric... "people working for the people"... blah, blah, blah... but there is always a higher tier to that... Someone wanting to live better than everyone else, and control someone else's life... How many times has this been attempted in history, and failed by the way?

It's never even been attempted the way Karl Marx wrote about (which is an Advanced Capitalist country transiting to Socialism). So far what we've seen are very poor, backwards countries that have attempted it (and most being Stalinist ran dictatorships, rather than a dictatorship of the proletariat). There were however some successful socialist democracies like Sweden, etc.

Hey Roz do you know that in Hebrew www equals 666, John who wrote Revelations was a hebrew. The name Nero also equals that number(I heard this from television,) and the bible speaks of that evil person.

The Lord with his faithful followers will go to heaven, The kingdom that will reign forever with no end because the Lord is the beginning and end. I speak for Christ as a part of the Kingdom.:cool:

Ok... and this means what? "WWW"... is that supposed to be a person? Or the "World Wide Web"? Or how many other ways could you interpret it? See the bible is a book, based on other stories, then revised over and over again... now it's being over-analyzed by people who probably have little-no-knowledge of any of that... and you hang on their every word... Seems pretty sad to me...

Also in hebrew the word for the number 6 is "nail", so it's interesting that only after he receives the alleged mark of the beast while being crucified that he was catapulted to god/deity status.
