    While most countries in today's modern world are capitalist, representative democracies, there are quite a few countries that have created their own economic and political systems that no longer fit the rosy, contrasting ideologies of Capitalism, Socialism and Communism. In fact, these countries often mix the 3 and develop something completely new. And because these countries are growing a rates drastically faster the the US, we can't dismiss their models as ineffective.

    Anyway, let's try and list as many of these of alternatives as possible and discuss them.

    I'll start
    Germany- Representative democracy/Social Market Economy
    China- Representative democracy/Socialist Market Economy
    Libya- Direct, popular democracy/Islamic Socialism
    Switzerland- Direct, popular democracy/Capitalism w/ social safety net.
    Vietnam- Representative democracy/Socialist-oriented Market Economy

    I dont know about the present Libyan colony fitting into the list as effective,

    and 2011 China is something more like Chaing Kai Chek's China,

    instead of Mao's or Sun Yat Sen!

    None of the benfits or the masses from comunism,
    but only te restrictins of freedoms and police state

    They got their 5 families running stuff, just like the cosa nostra,

    They have a 1 perecnt ish there too, that they will cut out your organs without anathesia, and sell them, if one even thinks about
    "occupy or protest Bank of China"

    who do w think is paying the bill for the US war machine?
