    Its not sarcasm, i was refering to the whole idea of a planned economy.
    Then your definition of "communism" is incredibly strange.

    And flagrantly inaccurate, as most tend to be. Capitalism is itself dependent on economic planning.

    To a certain extent, yes. Communisms are flawed, Vietnam knows this, Eastern Europe and Russia knows this, China will eventually know this. The American democracy has lasted for years, ever since the founding of its consitution all those years ago. Its outlasted all those crappy communisms out there. Why? Because a free market is the way forward for economic growth and opportunity. Im not going to live and work in a communism as a doctor if a friggin bin man is earning the same damn wages as me. As they say, say no to BS, say no to communism.

    So you prefer the combination of inaccurate reference to state capitalism as "communism" and American capitalism as a "free market"? Not an especiallz pleasant sight, I have to say.

    And at the last minute, you decided to throw in typically economically ignorant remark to the effect that you believe that socialism and communism involve absolutely equal compensation criteria in all cases.

    I didnt say this was always the case. Doesnt change the fact communisms are BS...ask East Germans or Russia.

    Yeah...and that's a repetition of your inaccurate reference to state capitalism. Worse, you refer to this state capitalism as "communism," an even more atrocious economic fallacy than the typical inaccurate reference to socialism.
