Woah. I wasn't aware of that. Glad to have you back. I hope that your surgery was a success and you feel better soon!

Welcome back Ava, and I'm glad your surgery went well! We hope to see you return in full force soon!

Great to hear you're doing OK, Ava. I can only agree with you - I too prefer a moderate stance.

Also, I read an article on a Dutch website today with a chart comparing the share of income of the top 1% as a percentage of total income in different countries. Apparently, the US top 1% earned 20% of the total in 2012, the German top 1% approximately 11%, the Dutch top 1% about 6.5% and Norway's top 1% just 5.8%. Didn't really expect the differences to be that big :O

Yeah the United States is a little...wonky. Obamacare was kinda a step in the right direction but to be honest the political parties are far too stubborn to actually get anything done in a timely manner.

Glad to hear that, Ava!! Hope you feel better!

Excellent! I hope you recover soon.

Nice to have u back avaerilon.

On the socialism/capitalism discussion:

Avaerilon makes some gpod points. However, if one scours around, u will find that various people have different definitions and conceptions of what capitalism anf socialism mean. If u look at how the Socialist Party of Great Britain defines socialism, one finds it is not too different from what a left libertarian would like to see in a post capitalist world or a marxist would describe as 'the higher phase of socialism'. If one examines Milton Friedmam's conception of capitalism, one finds a few things that a leftist might agree with like provision for a basic income and liberal social policies like making drugs legal

The way I see it, it would be best to strive towards achieving a post capitalist world where most, if not all, goods and services are made abundant due to advanced technology and mass automation of labour. This will enable us focus more on building egalitarian, altruistic, humane, sustainable, libertarian, harmoniois and democratic societies where people tolerate each other and lack incentives to dominate and exploit others. With scarcity largely eradicated, we wud have a gift economy of free access to resources without need for money or any other means of exchange.

Economically I'm fairly socialist - I support nationalisation of key industries and some services, the welfare state, universal healthcare etc etc, but I also am pro-small business. There is nothing wrong with wanting to get on in life in my eyes, so long as it is not at the expense of other people, as capitalism/business often turns out to be.
