US Capitalism is hoarding money in the top 1%.. The velocity of money is slowed down by this and the economy is stagnat.

 

I guess Spock and Captain Kirk were communists

There are only material solutions to material problems:  get some pain killers, and get the teeths fixed and send the bill to Tramp.  Meditation wont touch that.

That is utter nonsense. You believe this only ifd you have not studied history.

Communism, or whatever you want to call the governments of Poland and Romania when they were "Socialist" or "Communist" had horrible pollution.

Mao was a great military strategist, but as a leader, he was a fucking disaster: the Great Leap Forward and the CFuiltural Revolution were colossal failures. Mao was useful mostly in the sense that he demonstrated to later Communist government show NOT to run a country.

 

Capitalism is a tool, useful for industrializing a society, not a system of government. Communism as practiced has been successful to a rather modest degree.

The people of East Germany certainly had enough experience with Communism to decide how much they liked it. They are free to vote for Communists in the state elections now, and they have not done so.

 

Actually what seems to work best is a mixture of Socialist measures (public utilities, public housing, public education and medical care free to all) and regulated capitalism in the economy. There is not and b]never will be a Perfect State, because technology and attitudes in human society are constantly changing. Utopias are perhaps something to strive for, like running the two-minute mile.

 

I like the motto Lexus uses: "The relentless pursuit of Perfection", as well as the one the US Army used once "Be all that you can be."\

 

Of course, the Consumer Society we have now is unsustainable.

So are the political systems of the People's Republic, Cuba, and pretty much everywhere else.

Marxist Historical Materialism is NOT Utopianism, he threw out Utopianism.  There's only capitalism and communism, its the only 2 choices for humanity, so choose sides.
