Hey sign me up! If we all get 21.5 acres of pristine subtropical land with ponds and lakes, 10 buildings, hook me up yo. Even better is I also get an income of 150,000 units of measurement of value, then I wont need to bother buying solar panels (which apparently JF hasnt any in Venus, FLORIDA).
Would have NOTHING to do with Imperialism, because it would be built on co-operation and sharing.
It will FAIL for one simple reason, I alone wont agree to it. When I wont agree to it, and I do as I wish, it will have to stop me, simply because it wont be able to work without my and everyone elses cooperation with one another. It will need to be able to predict decades in advance of how to globally manage all possible resources in order to predict how to ensure abundance, but it wont be able to predict our every move in order to do its job. Therefore it will have to tell us how to use every scale of resource, or it will FAIL.
And to even ensure total abundance harmony, it will be even more doomed to attempt to work without being able to average out total global resources, meaning without total global control it cannot work.
Capitalism creates scarcity.
Proper capitalism denounces scarcity as if you have access to cheaper resources you have better ability to compete. On the flip side, the connectedness of everything ensures that only those with near-direct access to the needed resources feel this advantage. Otherwise everything spreads out to effect the market values directly.
Scarcity creates tension.
It does. And screwing us right out of the value of our 'dollars' is about the most immoral thing ever. Especially being the 'world reserve currency'. By tightening the grip on EVERYBODY, this isn't even capitalism, its outright exploitation.

Did I actually say "control"? News in this nation travels worldwide. Taking back our media, from the multinational corporatists, in itself would be heard around the world. There is such a thing of capitalism wihtout corporatism and mega-conglomeration. But even without it, per say, the Internet connects majority of theworld now.
