Perhaps in theory. In practice communism leads to untold misery, starvation, mass murder, and slavery of the "proliteriat".


"Communism" has led to environmental disasters and the worst pollution problems on the planet.


Did you not take history classes in highschool and college?

We've hunted species to extinction..

Or we could just take money out of politics. You can still have regulated Capitalism. It's just like a football game, if you want to play the game, then everyone needs to follow the rules. Free-market Capitalism will always consume itself. It's just as bad as Communism.

It's very easy to be a commie in the USA because they don't ever have to live under that system!

That's the challenge.
It's interesting how the rise of greed corresponds to the diminishing numbers of churchgoers.

Eh capitalism exists as a system not because it is intrinsically "good" or "evil" or any has kind of moral tie in at all. Capitalism is an amoral system. It exists because it functions reasonably well in practice and does not make Utopian assumptions about the motivation of the humans that exist within the system, unlike many of the preceding competitive ideologies.

Instead of assuming altruistic motives it assumes self interested ones, which surprise surprise... tends to mesh well with actual human behavior instead of wished for or desired human behavior.
