MrJames wrote:Good points, John. However, I'm going with the Torvalds mentality on this one: go with what works. Socialism and Communism have been proven time and again to definitely *not* work. Every country that went down that road ended up in a ditch. Name me one commie country in history that did not end up being ruled by a dictator that got his position through a coup using the military to enforce "order" which is another word for "his chair". And whenever somebody points out that fact, all socialist/communist supporters say the same thing: "well, they didn't do it right".

Any string or toy she finds is hers and she hides it in her special storage area that she claimed for herself. Many animals pee around an area they have claimed for themselves (usually paying for the right by winning a battle). Seems to me the concept of ownership is all natural - the very thing you are in favor of.

That means that the actual system should go too (sooner or later).
That doesn't mean that the next system will be better (it might also be worse), how should i know.
With the brutality we have seen so far, i bet that the actual system will rather destroy all and everything than let itself be replaced.
If it won't be replaced it will destroy all and everything too (not with a boom, but more slow, a wee bit every day).
Looks like it's a lose-lose situation...

To arrive at truth requires the most important step that we as human beings can ever take: thinking. Through this thinking, and with good teaching and reading, we can put together a coherent theoretical apparatus that helps us understand.
