Wow. You think I'm a communist? Just because I see some desirable traits in socialist ideology? Well, you're wrong. I'm more capitalist, but I do see some good things about socialism. Socialism. Not the same as communism. See, communism is a socialist dictatorship, while socialism can exist with democratic systems. I have a problem with dictatorships, so I have a problem with communism, as it's thus far appeared.
On your earlier note, if children work in a sweat-shop, they get almost no pay, if any, and I highly doubt any chance at advancement. If you're working in a factory, doing the work that machines do in the US, (i.e. on an assembly line), in a Third World country, and you never get any chance to better your miserable living conditions--which is the case in many parts of the Third World--then you're just lazy? When you have no opportunity for advancement, isn't it the employer's fault for not providing that opportunity? Or at least the employer's fault for not taking care of his workers, through pay or otherwise? And if the employer is in a tight bind and can't afford to give up any of his earnings, shouldn't legislation be put in place to remedy that?
Finally, I'm not ignoring those workers who started low and rose high. I'm just saying that far too many people don't even get that chance. And far too many people work hard, with no reward, for their entire lives, just so their families live on the brink of starvation instead of in starvation. It's a detestable situation, and I desperately want to fix it.
And sounds so much like what the pro-AGW elites want the entire world to do, so they can live in luxury. algor, john Effing Kerry, michael moore, babs boxer, and so on...
