I don't feel negative towards communism especially as I remember that a lot of Russians did not like giving it up for various reasons such as
employment etc and it probably worked for a while before, like all systems it got corrupted by the exploitative few.
As you say I don't care for capitalism either today because of the greed and the distance this system has put between the elite rich and the rest of
the people. Things are so tight, if you need things people are trying to rip off any extra fees they can and the banks are there in force.
I would prefer to see something in the middle of both systems and an equalising out of wealth. I don't think either its the Islamic way for an
alternative system because they simply find ways of sidestepping their banking usury system and most countries have the same capitalist societies with
the very rich and ordinary getting wider apart.
Watching Keiser on RT yesterday, for whom I do have a healthy respect, when he doesn't wriggle about too much, was very interesting because he made
the point that with all this quantative easing we have in capitalism, we don't seem to have much money in our pockets! So, where exactly has all
this new money found its way to - he said Warren Buffet and the likes. But again its a system of letting the buffets of the world grab more money and
stop it circulating into a system we all benefit by, because it certainly hasn't gone into wages to stimulate the economy for ordinary people.
There was a lot of propaganda about the Russians which is easy to do because they have a language most don't speak, so you couldn't check so
easily what the tv told you. I was amazed at the RT documentaries and Russian life. OK its not the wealthies or simplest existence but it was far
more interesting and diverse than the propaganda led one to believe and home-made vodka, although encouraging drunks seemed quite fun for the odd
Whichever way we go and I hope it won't involve civil or war unrest, despite rumours of elite desires to cull our numbers, we need a new system now,
not tomorrow, but now or things will get out of hand.
In communism you don;t have the Queen snatching fracking rights from landowners for which our government is putting the legislation through, in order
to be able to take someone's land they paid for, frack on it and take the profit for the queen. Our system is disgusting in some ways.
