So this seems to be a topic recently. I just have some things to say.
1.) If you tax the rich a lot more but the rich are still rich, what's the problem?
2.) I do have a problem with it if you tax the rich so much that they're not rich anymore. The economy is said to be based on greed and what will happen with the economy if no one can become rich anymore?
3.) I think it would be a little scary if everyone was exactly the same class. I don't think there should be class discrimination either.
4.) I don't think we should reject every socialist idea just because it can be called that dirty word, "socialism."
5.) I don't like Communism mainly because I want to be able to choose what kind of job I want and a lot of government control is a little scary.
6.) Is spreading the wealth control? There's always taxes. How come this form of taxes is automatically socialist?
7.) Sometimes, competition is bad. I wouldn't want two police or fire departments competing.
8.) Should an economy be based on greed?
9.) Should a form of government systematically destroy greed?
10.) Is greed necessarily bad for the economy?
11.) I'm kind of for a scientific approach where we study how people become happy. Most tribes work on a kind of socialist base. I think that people are willing to and are happier when they work for the group, but if the idea of the "group" or "working for the betterment of the group" it is imposed by some impersonal government entity, the "group" that you're working for at that point is too big and people will lose sight of what they're doing and become depressed. The group must be smaller and personal. That's how tribes work. I mention tribes because I'm for going back to basics. Basic human nature. I kind of like the idea of Venezuela's GNH, Gross National Happiness.
12.) And one last thing, people are always going nuts over "growth." Business growth, personal growth, etc. I think it's important to succeed but if growing is all we do and we don't monitor it more, there could be no more nature left. I don't want to turn into a tree-hugger or anything but I just want to point out that maybe we should all be more objective in our views towards "growth." We have to think about our planet and future.
On SpaceShip Earth, there are no passengers, only crew.
