Two questions: 1) Why do you guys thing that the big socialist parties of Europe dropped the road to the commune in favour of libertarian social democracy during the late 20th Century? Was the shortlived economic boom it brought worth abandoning the momentum that had been built up against profit-orientated and exploitational capitalism? 2) Why is it almost all Americans consider free market (imperalist) capitalism the sole valid option for economics in the world today, and refuse to even consider any other theories? Is it because they are economically ineducated or they are satisfied with widespread poverty and labour injustice outside of the own country, or outside of the rich areas of their country? Just interested. I mean, capitalism is like the internal combustion engine; it's bean around too long, it's inefficient and it's ****s up the environment. It's got to go.
