Or maybe capitalism is just as dead-in-the-water as socialism was in the days leading up to the collapse of communism.

Hard to say really. From where I'm standing, it looks like Capitalism has lead us directly to a concentration of power in a tiny elite (money = god = control).

Maybe but what about when you use an item that was transported via those roads. Maybe you don't drive on those roads (or at all), but have those roads benefited your life in any way? Bought literally anything from a store? Communicated via the internet or phone? All only possible due to the convenient transportation provided by public roads.

If not, chances are you live a life that is secluded enough (from society) that you could likely not pay taxes and no one would notice. Enjoy.

This makes sense. Arab Spring was five years ago - we were all glued to it.
Now it's the Western commoners who need to stand up and say "enough!

The citizenry is no longer oblivious. The uprisings are right on schedule.

It's an exciting, and scary, time to be alive.

It's not a coincidence that the events in the ME in the last few years have lead to the breakup of the EU.

They will need an enemy to keep it together.

so...they engineered the imigrant crisis to break up the EU and now same THEY initiate a false flag to keep it together.

wow...they must be pretty bored.

What do roads and taxes have to do with what you quoted?

I simply pointed out that the system doesn't have maximum utility, and is therefore, flawed. I make no special claims as to what the solution is. The only thing I know for sure is that every talking ape on the planet who ever lived thought they were living in a period of stability until it all went pear-shaped.

We are no different.

Oh my goodness! That's really alarming.
Like when I learned how many gallons of water are required to grow a pound of almonds....

it just isn't sustainable!
So - why is desalination not more on the front burner? Do you know? I've been wondering that.

Yes, Las Vegas and Southern California and Phoenix will have to learn to landscape with less use of water -
have you ever read "Dune"?
I do know that some of those cities recycle waste water - which is awesome, too

But desalination is actually a thing, and I don't know: what's the hold up? I mean, we've known (mankind, that is) how to do it for a long long time....
