    Socialism: anything else
    And that's exactly how I see it also! I'm looking for some kind of socialist system to provide a more equitable, fairer method of divying up what's left of this world's resources, rather than continuing on our present course which, right now is building up to a world war against Russia and China for control and access to the necessary raw materials to maintain economic growth.

    The fact that today's globalized economy can't function unless it's growing, is the main reason why an alternative to capitalism is necessary.

    Socialism never works, but neither does true capitalism.

    What are you not understanding comrade? We will never know if we do not dare. Pick up the rifle and spark the revolution. We have nothing to lose but our chains.

    What is life as a slave? There is no God above or Hell below, only open sky. Pick up the rifle and join the fight comrade.
