Sheesh.  (I mean Einstein, not BillB, I already know BillB is a commie, who doesn't.)

Pure Communism would be the perfect economic system ... if it only could 
work.  Pure free capitalism would be another perfect economic system ... 
if it only could work.  Controlled socialism seems to work some small 
places if it taken in small doses and not too controlled.  Controlled 
capitalism works well if it is not too controlled.

The lack of competition is the major problem with socialism and lack of 
competition is the major problem with capitalism.

Too many things socialized is too many ... too little freedom in markets 
is too little.  The laws of economics apply to both sorts of thoughts.

Economies of scale can lead to the law of diminishing returns.  Bigger 
operations eventually lead to bloated bureaucracies.  Greed and 
corruption can exist in all forms.  Who calls the shots?  Who sets the 
boundaries?  Who enforces the rules?  Who watches who?  And who watches 
the watchers?

Some communes seemed to work pretty good in the 60s ... some did not. 
And Stalin certainly did not work out too good.  Even if Mussolini make 
the trains run on time, not so good either.  Were the captains of 
industry good?  How about Indian Chiefs?  Moses?  Caesar?
