    Unless you’re over a 100 years old you lived in a totalitarian system masquerading as Communism.

      See how you didn’t even have to ask which country it was? Because a 100% of communist countries became dictatorships ridden with poverty for the working class and gold plated luxury for the ruling class.

      I’m happy now somewhere in the middle in this terrible, terrible capitalism. Oh, and I’m free to leave anytime I want, if I don’t like it.

        So do 100% of Capitalist countries without a strong democracy. In fact capitalism is the one designed to do so by concentrating capital.

        When we figure out communism or socialism there’s a really good chance it’s a strong democracy that prevents it from falling into totalitarianism. Will it be a bunch of anarchic communes in council? Lol no. Will workers share profit equally with executives? Probably.

          So 60% of the time it works every time?

          I am a worker and I share profit with the terrible evil corporation I work for, BTW.

      Funny how that’s always the result.

        Funny how that’s a fallacy, and there have been countless largely communist organizations of human labor over history, which lasted just as long as capitalist society.

        Yeah I don’t think we’ve figured out a good way past the charismatic sociopath problem. The best thing we’re going to have in the short term is a democracy with a strong emphasis on socialism.

          So… most European countries and some in Asia / Oceania. Those topping every social welfare and happiness indexes…

            Pretty much. Except even they could push it further if they weren’t still tiptoeing around the wealthy.
