Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
"True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero
I love it when we are so busy over whether or not capitalism works that we cant make serious conversations about reform.
Just because we are capitalist does not mean SSI and Medicare aren't good ideas
Just because China is communist doesn't mean they can't compete in a globalized market. (The money for infrastructure and investment come from the govt central bank rather than the private sector)
I am most certain this is all Mr. Castro is trying to say. Not whether or not communism is right, but rather there are things that can be done to make it better.
I must admit though, calling libs names at the beginning of this thread and arguing whether or not capitalism works at the end of this thread are entertaining stretches!
and so it goes...
Without fear of being voted out, with that Tiannenmen Square-ish swagger, the commies can use their citizens' money to provide the largest, most pollutant exploitative sweatshop system in the world!Just because China is communist doesn't mean they can't compete in a globalized market.
Shoes for £5?! Speaks for itself, doesn't it Left?!
Proper democracy and the freedom of people to decide their own destinies would be a nice start. But perhaps not, when saving face for their government and well-wishing Leftists takes priority.Not whether or not communism is right, but rather there are things that can be done to make it better.
IT'S JUST A DIFFERENT TYPE OF THE SPICE OF LIFE!

the totalitarians are making communism work
they're going to make oppression better
these few remaining obama supporters of the outspoken variety are coming to look weekly curiouser and curiouser---to normal americans, that is
remember when obama's communications director anita dunn told a group of HI SCHOOL KIDS that her favorite "philosopher" was mass murderer mao?
it was the same day she bragged that her white house CONTROLLED THE NEWS
it was either a few days before or a few after she declared the great FOX NEWS WAR, which the weak-kneed white house surrendered within two weeks
and then she quit
the vision, the principle, the competence
not embarrassed yet?

i see you have scripture frmo teh Bible...maybe you should read ur bible again where it speaks abou treating your neighbor like urself, give a helping hand to the poor, speaking out against injustice and oppression...
from what it seems like, ur just stepping over the poor yelling at them, "you peasants all have an equal chance to be like me"
you have one hand behind their back giving them "support" to work for what they want, and ur other hand in their pockets cheating them...In fact, i suggest YOU look into the New Deal and FDR's intentinos.

Would you be so quick to leap in to defend Nazism from people out to bash it, on a point of principle? For balance you probably ought to.I just get pissed when i see conservative cowards blatantly bash their ideology as if capalism (sic) is an ideology that surpasses it...
And incidentally, Capitalism DOES surpass communism. With Capitalism, the state need not meddle in peoples' private lives and bank accounts and the poorest people in the West enjoy a higher standard of living and social security than their counterparts in Cuba.
That starts the ball rolling, with those few enough for me anyway.
