i dont think capitalism will be here indefinitely, but i think we are at a point technologically where it is still the best system. legislature needs to be enacted to protect citizens from the extremes of capitalism, but for right now we need to be moving full steam ahead with technology to get to a point where we can provide everyone with everything they want. i dont expect to see the end of capitalism in my lifetime. maybe my grandchildren will, but not me.

humans are not loners, we are certainly societal creatures, but communal? that has different connotations that i am not willing to buy into yet. we evolved brains, not braun. we have to make up for the lack of braun with numbers, but that is done out of necessity, not out of some instinct. the strongest instinct of any organism is to look out for number one (the exception being mothers with defenseless children but thats all propogation of genes stuff)

and im basing my thoughts on science mostly. i try to avoid social sciences and ideologies as much as possible, id rather just look for pragmatic solutions.

Anarchism has failed as well, don't forget.

It's not the system, it's the people. They'd all be great, but we need to change the people first.
