These are all extreme points on the (metaphorical, of course) wheel of human systems.

None can truly exist in pure form, and (IMHO) the optimal arrangement of things would fall somewhere in
the area of that wheel, having elements of all of these.

I choose balance (as I do in most things).

Prithee, allow me to clarify:

You have suggested that someone has consumed an excess of coffee this morning.  I wish to know
the identity of the person so described.

I KNOW you're not talkin' about me...  'cuz the last time I drank any coffee at all was 1984...
Srsly...  I don't touch the stuff.

So anyway, the whole commie, socialist, captalist-dog, darwinist thing....  Eh?

Diet cola I agree with, just because it tastes better.
But as I have said many times before, tea is DEVIL JIZZ!
& yes I wish I didn't smoke & yes I have tried to give up but I become one grouchy bastard (even more than normal!)

My friend from elementary school (it was some years ago) recently said that Communism & Socialism have since lost their original meanings... andfrom my history textbook, it seems like way back when, Democrats were Republicans and Republicans were Democrats.

My biology teacer from 9th grade also says Social Darwinism is a corruption of real Darwinism :P
