Was the country founded on peace? Or domination?
Something crossed my mind today. Go ahead and say it. That's where it all went wrong. But if you think about it, capitolism, which we all love, is based pretty much purely on money. Yeah, you can also say it's about freedom, and a free market, but it has to be, so it can make money. And communism, and socialism, are and always were, in theory, all about the people. You know, like when people who actually care are setting it up, it's meant to be just better for everyone. Course we all know it never works, but you see what im saying here. It's supposed to when they start it. Well, is there any chance that, way back when communist russia was born (im guessing that would be after imperial russia died?) it was to be all about the people. After all, how could they claim anything else and ever succede? Well, could it be, that our forefathers were smarter in choosing capitolism because in the back of their mind, they all knew the golden rule? That he who has the gold, makes the rules. Of course they would know that capitolism was all about what it has always been about. The gold. The beautiful, wonderful gold.
So is there any chance, that the ones we always saw as evil, could have actually wanted for the best of the people? (even if they didn't know they were making a mistake...) And the ones that we always saw as great, simply knew the best way to put their country on the path to being very powerful? It's not that hard to figure out. If you have a shit ton of money, then you have a shit ton of power. Not denying the forfathers were good and great and all, but they were they even greater by knowing what would put their country in the power seat? Thoughts? Opinions?
