There's a lot of ignorance about the "ism's" people love to throw around. These same people seem to forget that bailing out the banks is not
capitalism, that's socialism for the wealthy, the actions of a plutocracy, actually closer to fascism.
Those same people who scream about giving their community anything for free are also presumably people who would rather see their neighbor die slowly
of cancer because they can't afford treatment, or see their own children made homeless because the company they worked for went under after the bank
they use refused to give them a loan - rather than contribute anything in the form of taxes to support others they'd rather see the entire social
That's something else they seem to fail to understand. Without social safety-nets with working members of the public contributing through taxation,
crime would sky-rocket, disease outbreaks would be commonplace, workhouses would return, living standards would plummet, homelessness would be
pandemic... do they expect that they would just miraculously sail through that complete social implosion unscathed?
Quite frankly those people are ignoramuses. They seem to believe that their way of life is inside a little bubble, that they could refuse to
contribute at all and when the system breaks down they'll just survive on their bible and gun.
Those who scream about socialism or communism actually have no clue about what it means other than a stereotype created from decades of propaganda.
There are thousands of communities around the world that have successfully lived under such systems. There are hundreds of working communes in the
USA, UK, Australia, Europe, Asia and South America that have survived for decades with such systems of community and governance. There are untouched
tribes in remote regions where the same applies, where they don't need voting, leaders, taxation or any form of enslavement. They simply know that to
survive they need to work together.
The reason people seem to think that these system fail is because EVERY system of governance fails when the power is held by a few and the masses feel
powerless. THAT is what ends EVERY system of government.
It is impossible for governments to maintain populations in the way that we are now doing. The crowd becomes too large to manage, communities become
fractured, and when corruption on an industrial scale is allowed to go unchecked it leads to implosion.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely - and that is why every single system of government will fail when the lives of so many millions of people are
dictated by the decisions of a few - elected or otherwise.
That is the problem. We need smaller communities, self-determination, direct governance, without the ism's, just doing what is in the best interests
of that community for a better life. And if that means you paying $5 out of every $100 so your next generation can be educated to continue
civilization in an appropriate way, so be it, grow up, be a member of society and contribute!
I for one would rather pay my taxes to provide free education for the next generation (as we live in a social system dictated by what papers say you
can do) than see my taxes paying for the corrupt leaders of my nation to live in luxury, or pay for the bombs dropping on another oil-rich country, or
pay to cover the hole left by corporations being allowed to pay 30% of what they actually owe!
What does all this mean? It means that what many of us were predicting two years ago is finally starting. It started with the Tea Party, was picked up
by Occupy, and it continues. It needs to continue without this BS "ism" rubbish from ignorant fools who know nothing but how to say it. It's an
inevitable part of the collapse of another failed system of government, a system that allows a few to control and manipulate the masses for their own
gain, corrupt to the core and without any soul or morality whatever.
That's my take on it all, and I know that I'm not alone.
