Although capitalism isn't the greatest, I think what Churchill said about democracy can be applied also to capitalism - it's the worst system.. other than all the rest.

Capitalism is the only working system I know of that does not lead by religious ideology. Instead this system allows individuals to preceded government on new ideas rather than have eminent domain on what goes on in society.

Okie dokie that's another really complex topic and unfortunately I can' quite remember my history class on Marxism...

But I watched a documentary on him a little while ago and the way I understood is that not every idea he had in mind was bad. I actually liked that he would stand up for the common man...

Now I feel that he's definitely too radical in some ways, and few parts of his ideology needs careful revision. But I am also sure that some of his basic concepts meant well and many crazy political leaders around the globe have corrupted the whole idea to gain mass control...

Socialism and Communism how are those 2 terms connected?

Now please anyone who is familiar with this, give me some feedback if I understand this topic right...I really wanna get a better understanding...

Derek feel free to enlighten me Wink hehehe....
