    Default Vote for society....

    This is a simple exercise, read the statements below and vote for your preferred ideal:

    1. A theory or system of social organisation based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the state.

    2. A theory or system of social organisation that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

    3.
    A theory or system in which investment in and ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange of wealth is made and maintained chiefly by private individuals or corporations, esp. as contrasted to cooperatively or state-owned means of wealth.

    communism, socialism or capitalism good question and as above I reckon a mix of socialism and capitalism would be best. I can't vote for that so have gone for Capitalism . . .

    Damn, I was reading hard, hoping to find a new and groundbreaking model

    As it stands, all 3 have massive flaws, and I've only experienced (very close to) 3, so I find it hard to vote.

    Wikipedia is for cunts, it was taken from Reference.com.

    As regards anarchy, while I love the concept the execut1on is impossible.

    I went with the 2nd option because I feel we live in option 3 (by and large) and I honestly feel corporate ownership is going to lead to a huge problem. As has been said, ideally we would be somewhere within 2 & 3 and not totally on one side.

    To sum it up in a sentence - I want to live in a meritocracy where hard work and enterprise are rewarded and the strong take care of the weak. The problem with all social models (communism, socialism etc..) is that they are never allowed to function in their purest state, as long as humans are falliable there will always be corruption (as beautifully illustrated in Orwell's book, Animal Farm).

    Or did someone already make that point??

    We all know how this works, capitalism, fascism, communism, socialism etc. the result is always the same = a small elite group that fucks everyone else in the ass.

    Haha I'm sure they are, you know the Swedes are dirty. Not us Finns though as we are not part of Scandinavia
