    People talk about Cuba and North Korea. Well, both countries were doing pretty well during Soviet reign and North Korea had a bigger economy than South Korea. When Soviet Union went down so did the economies of Cuba and North Korea. Well, South Korea, Japan and many other countries are doing well because of America as well. As things get worse in America it will get worse in those countries as well. It has nothing to do with isms. If capitalism alone was the remedy Japan's and South Korean economies would not depend on American consumption.

    Well, no one said capitalism was so flawed and no one said communism was better

    This quite possibly may be the only thread where Big hasn't stated that, so you'll have to forgive jroback for jumping to a conclusion.

    How about a "zation", as in "Globalization".

    How long did communism last in USSR? 1917-1989? OR something like that. Capitalism has lasted in North America from 1621 (see William Bradford's account of the first growing season in Massachusetts Bay Colony) until the present day. Nearly 400 years!

    See, when people exist in a natural state and are allowed to form their own governments and economic systems, capitalism is what happens. We saw it with the Pilgrims and we saw it when Big told us about the underground economies that existed in communist Russia. People naturally gravitate toward an economic system that gives them freedom. The desire to be free will never die.

    Capitalism had 300 years on communism plus the benefit of WWII that destroyed much of Soviet Union. Its like that issue with black people in America. Slavery has been abolished more than 150 years ago and yet white people overall are still better off.

    Does that mean that white people are supposed to worse off than black people? Or, does it mean that black people should be better off than whites? I am worse off than some whites, better off than others, and probably doing just as well as most. Something that happened hundreds of years ago doesn't affect my choices today.

    There ARE communist utopias for you to live in. Why do you continue to suffer here?

    I can honestrly say if I felt like you I would leave. Really I would. Why do you continue to subject yourself to all our injustice when utopia is only 90 miles south of Florida.

    They have free health care, great beaches and amazing cigars. Why stay here????

    amazing cigars

    Yes, they do. That would be my favorite benefit if the trade embargo was lifted.
