All aspects of society, production, distribution, etc will be decided democratically by the people. It will be a planned economy, but that plan will be a democratic plan. Everyone has a say.
A socialist economy would plan production to produce what everyone needs.
The problem with Capitalism is that it produces more than what people can afford, or what they need, and the inefficient method of distribution prevents people from getting what they need
MB. wrote:Was the marxist leninist example capable of producing goods at a rate that if uninterrupted by outside influences would have inevitably engendered a state of communism?There were both positive and negative points with regard to the Soviet Union's economy. The most positive point was that goods were being produced even under a state-capitalist economy, unfortunately, state-capitalism was not really involved with the labourers themselves, in other words, there was no direct involvement or a communal understanding of what goods were desired within society at the time. However, with this in mind, we must eliminate the consumer ideology that encourages waste of production, and develop it within the understanding of the class-in-and-for-itself philosophy. The Soviet Union, no matter if it lived in a vacuum, was not going to be the next communism, although, there really is no difference between socialism or communism in terms of Marx.
MB. wrote:Do you recommend a socialist democratic method of production, wherein citizens elect what goods to produce, or something similar?This is idiocy, outside of any understanding of class-in-and-for-itself. As you see with our present democracies, it's mostly a failure at development, so any idea that we'll have an election to decide what we'll produce today and the 51% wins the decision, would be based in utopian minds.
