Kondratieff wrote that communism, socialism and capitalism will fail, they are designed to fail. Their basic underlying principles have flaws.

Kondratieff was correct when he wrote that communism, socialism and capitalism will all fail because they are designed to fail. The basic underlying principles have flaws. 

Communism fails because it doesn't value creativity, encourages collectivism, doesn't value individual rights, doesn't provide incentives to work, has a militant attitude toward imperialism, reveals indifference to environment, it has a basic lack of ability to distribute commodities in a fair manner, it too easily…

Better Democracy Idea.

I have been wondering for a few years now what democracy means. It seems to me that it has never really existed, in representative democracy we vote for our leaders but in-between the elections officials and intelligence agency personnel (the real policymakers) seem to do whatever they wish, including privatization of public services and therefore introducing economic competition and commission type incentives to areas that should be for the welfare of people rather than reducing people to…

what if?

Is it all right to do nothing with you life? Simple question. What harm would come if you simply woke up in the morning and went to work then came home at night and enjoyed yourself? Working, of course, is an essential aspect of living. If you want to have a place to come home to that is your own, where you can be alone, then you have to work to make the money necessary to sustain you own life.

Confused History Teacher Calls for “Revolution”

With protests breaking out against repressive regimes throughout the Arab world, it is not surprising that people here would feel inspired. However, the activities in the Middle East are not revolutions, at least not yet. People are not calling for new forms of government or economic systems.

Taking on Libby (libertarian) bullshit: The Market Will Take Care of It

You know of those religious people who say “God will provide”, the Libby equivalent to that is “the market will take care of it”. While Libbies do not apply it to everything they do apply it to the economy, job markets, etc.



The market does not take care of things, it doesn’t even take care of it self much of the time. What is dose and doesn’t do depends on the many variables (supply, demand, how much money people have, how much people are wiling to spend, how many people there are,… Continue

It’s time for a good old fashioned rant: Utopianist Idiots

Authoritarians are utopianits as well are anarchists, there are atheistic utopianists who thing if we get rid of religion the world will be at peace and there are theocratic utopianists who believe if everyone and every government followed their religion the world would be a peace and there are…
