    Wouldn't it be nice if you could go to a library and read up on all the different systems: Capitalism, socialism, tribelism, etc., goon line to converse with people who live in those systems, then make an intelligent decision about what kind of society you'd like to live in, go to such a country and apply for citizenship without anybody questioning your patriotism.

    what do you know about the different systems? Which would you rather live in and why? Is your choice based on tow the system looks on paper or how it is actually practiced? What countries come to mind tht practice the system you've chosen?

    i've studied systems being a student, but I don't know if I could give a fair evaluation of all of them since I have only lived in a capitalistic society. The foundation of my ideal system would be a system that truely did allow an individual to do anything they want through equal rights, opportunities, etc..........People can throw labels on systems, but if there are corrupt people who control it, it will ultimately fail.

    I am impressed...particularly with your last line. but would add that sometimes they don't fail they keep going and people suffer. Burma, under the dictatorship, has closed the door for years, only way we even know what is happening to the people there is from people who have escaped the borders to tell the tale. Ethnic cleansing of the afro-mixed ethnic Jungle tribes has been going on by the majority Chinese out there and we hear nothing.

    Great Post!



    I think it would be eye opening no matter what we chose.

    That's true. One thing we may find out is that it's not the system but like the brotha just said the people who control the system. Everything looks good on paper.

    I know they are all based on a monetary system and are designed to keep us in a state of perpetual slavery.

    There's a very good work out by Dr. Chancellor Williams entitled: "Rebirth of African Civilization". One of the key points in the work is that our ancestors turned down the present system we now live in over 500 years ago and why. Once you study this work you can go to "Civilization or Barbarism" by Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop. Believe me, your questions regarding systems and the outcome of them will be answered. Our people have been on the earth for millions of years with the experience of systems to go with it.
