ok, in theory, communism isnt bad. just its easily corruptable, which puts most of the people in poverty. look at 1979 Nicaragua, daniel ortega and the sandistas overthrew a dictator and installed a government that was slightly less then full blown communism, the economy actually grew. Communism cannot realistically work on a large scale, but i mean most native americans and african tribes were in all reality communist. its unfair to compare the two governments because they are actually exteremly different.
in theory the people do, but realistically its a Republic, we get to elect our officials who then choose what we do/want. in communism the descions are supposed to be made be everyone, so its actually got a hint of democracy in it, people assciote communism with totalatarian govenrment, which it isnt nescerally.
A true communist government has yet been achieved. People should WANT communism, not NEED it for it to be truly communist. The internet is fast becoming a communist environment. Linux is 100% free, and to date the best OS in the world. Wikipedia is actually just as reliable as Britannica encyclopedia. Wiki users DONATE TIME as opposed to MONEY to help people out. YouTube is another example, video SHARING. LimeWire, uTorrent even Google itself are good examples of what I call Cyber - Communism.
If you actually think the Internet is in a process into becoming a Communist ran system, then you are sadly mistaken... It is more to a lean Corporate ideology. Advertising, Market and ETC. Much MORE dependable unto the Corporate then to the Communist.
i agree with Zienland, for the users, theyre sharing info. true, but its all money driven....the internet will never be communist, and there will never be a truely communist govt. (jus checking has anyone actually read the communist manefiesto besides me?)
How come there was music before copyright then?
Why should we have to pay to listen to something we WANT not NEED.
They can make money from tours, websites, advertising.
That is the FATAL flaw of capitalism, it gets out of had and quite frankly ridiculous, now don't get me wrong, your an intelligent guy, I have my views you have yours.
Yes, like you said you have your views and I have mine.
If you wanna listen to it, then pay for it. It's like asking for VIP for free, you cannot have what is not yours. That particular music is not yours... Its from somebody else, and that person has the right to say, that you can listen to it or not.
