    Not caring for the poor killed Rome.

    Is Rome II dying?

    Well what I will say is that Socialism is watered down communism but not wanting to split hairs it's all utopian thought.Communism of course believed in the dictatorship of the proletariat.This is where I part company with communism,as I do not want the dictatorship of anyone,be it an elite or any other group.What we have in the world is totalitarian countries or what I call cashocracy.This is a democracy that depends on money or a financial system.This of course means that it cannot be a pure democracy indeed no such pure democracy exists.I believe the way we will have a better world is by having a world government,a world parliament and then,and here's the big one ,we would need to abolish money.As long as we have a financial system life will be unfair.Having said all that,sure America will be better if it is a truly caring society,whether it's called socialism or not doesn't really matter.All the world will be better when we all want a caring world.I hope having the sort of planet I have described will be part of human evolution,but maybe I'm just a beautiful dreamer.

    Rather a Star Trek view which I share.

    Do not stop pushing for it because if we do, it will never happen.

    Religion is what is holding the world back.



    I think we will have to do something about religions before things get much better. They are, in my view, the main antagonist to a one world government.



    I have nothing against money of some kind as we cannot trade as we used to without it.

    When we can all share a lifestyle less dependant on trade and cash, then we might be able to abolish it.
