    I hate Commies, bash the reds. Communism does not work at all. A Socialist society is a little more ideal. Fascism beats both of them because it is more controlled.

    Communism has worked for decades in several different nations around the world at different times, up until this day. Socialism is simply a step in the way to a Communist then completely free society. Fascism is the least controlled of the 3; That is, any manifestations of any of the ideologies (Bolshevism is anti-Marxist at its core). There is free enterprise for small business' under a Fascist economy.

    BTW- Why does humanity at this stage in its development still need 'control' at all?

    Every Socialist or semi-socialist society in the 20th century kicked butt. Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia (prewar), FDR's USA, Communist China. That's an historical fact.

    One thing I admire about socialist socities is that people I've met from them have faith and pride in the common man. They truly feel the dignity of the average working man: something more Americans, even working-class Americans, struggle with.

    Socialism is teamwork and organized society.

    I'm more of a Corporativist and Solidarist as opposed to a direct socialist. I find more things admirable in socialism than capitalism, but I believe in private property and the place of the familiy and religion. However, socialism is built on a materialist world-view; I believe in an economic system thats built on "higher spiritual and civilizational values" as Dugin would put it. I believe in pribate property, but I do believe in more equal distribution of private property.

    Socialism needn't be include state rules on religion.

    I think it is a Slavic trait to feel a sort of communality on a spiritual level. Some relatives of mine (who are Slavic) say this. Westerners don't feel that kind of spiritual communalism, I think - note that the British were some of the fiercest opponents of Communism and Socialism.

    Nevertheless it assumes much of the social roles that were traditionally reserved for the church.

    True. Berdyaev made this point in his "the Russian Idea"(1946)


    Well I can say is that much of my economic thinking is similar to that outlined in Pope Leo XIII's
    Rerum Novarum


    http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/12213b.htm

    The Catholic School agrees with the socialists in much of their criticism of the competitive system, but parts company with them by insisting on the place of religion, the family, property, and the employer system in the social scheme. In the matter of state intervention, there are among Catholic writers two general tendencies. The more "liberal" wing, led by such economists as Le Play, Périn, and Victor Brants, would reduce state action to a minimum, while others, looking to Bishop Ketteler, Cardinal Manning, and Count de Mun, would invoke a considerable measure of so-called State socialism. A strong impulse towards unity of effort among Catholics was given by the publication of the encyclicals of Pope Leo XIII, "Rerum Novarum", of 15 May, 1891, and "Graves de Communi", of 18 January, 1901.

    Thanks Pushkin, this is very interesting info! In the modern world, Catholicism is more and more a religion of the working peoples - but I didn't know that Catholics had developed these schools of thought on socialism, etc.

    Makes sense though. The inclusion of semi-socialist ideas in the USA was largely thanks to the trade union activities of the Irish, Italians, Polish, and other Catholic ethnic groups here that pushed for the dignity of the working man. Unfortunately that sentiment has been lost with middle-class complacency and short-sightedness - helped along by the frivolous consumerism that the media promotes.
