No. You might as well say command economy. Seriously, communism is a FAILURE! It cannot, and will not work. It is human nature for inequalities and envy to be inherent in the human race. Watch Enemy at the Gates: 'There will always be those rich in love, and those poor in love. There will always be those rich in power, and those poor in power. there will always be those who are rich in beauty, and those who are poor in beauty.' I don't think that's exactly what they say, but it's something along those lines. I mean come on guys, communism DOES NOT WORK! Geez. Besides, communism is for rebellious skater punks in 6th grade who don't know what it means. And the hammer and sickle is only good on red t-shirts. Communism ended the moment it was invented. It doesn't work, get over yourselves.
Capitalism inspires progress and innovation. For those of you who always bitch and complain about capitalism and America, get over yourselves and get the fuck out of the country if you hate it so much.
Goverments role is security, Law and order, supervision and consumer watch dog(making sure food is safe to eat, industry does not throw shit in rivers,Education standards,etc).
That's how you get shit done. Amen Oxy. Use private interest and profit motive as incentives for innovation and growth. Use the government to protect public interest and to keep the masses from getting screwed. What better way?
