There are a lot of different isms in this day and age. Most people seem to think each one is distinct and that some are better than others. I wanted to create a table to show that while there are some differences between all these isms, there are also a lot of similarities. Have a look.
Please understand that this table can't be 100% accurate. There are just too many variables. But what it will do is give you a pretty good understanding of what to expect from each one. This obviously leans towards my opinion but I'm not pulling this opinion out of a magic hat. This is gathered from reading many history books and talking with educated people.

|In other words...||Very similar to socialism but ran more on military/fascist lines. Not as deceptive as socialism as it is the predecessor.||The uneducated and wordly are led with propaganda to fulfill their master's whims while being rewarded with debauchery and vice. Individual growth is stunted and usually reversed.||Anyone in disagreement with the king is dead meat.||Law built upon universal principles is practiced by decent, well-educated individuals working on the path of growth. Lesser humans are helped, not enslaved.|
|Associated American Parties||Democrats||Democrats||Republicans||No Party|
I hope it is beginning to become clear what is going on here. Communism, Socialism and Fascism ARE ALL THE SAME. The subtle differences between them are minor things that make hardly any difference. It's like me asking you whether you would like to die by lethal injection or by having your head cut off. Either way you're dead. Don't let the process towards dictatorial, totalitarian tyranny fool you. In the end it is tyranny.
Capitalism is the best form of government we have experienced on earth so far because it is in the closest alignment with the laws of the universe and truth. It mirrors openness and freedom. It advocates responsibility and integrity. We should never forget just how important such virtues are.
So next time you hear that capitalism has failed you may want to recheck the facts. Capitalism doesn't exist. Capitalism hasn't existed for at least 100 years. If anything has failed it is clearly socialism and we're just getting warmed up. The more socialism fails the more power we lose until finally our new dictator will come in and seize our property, rights and freedoms. This is basic history. All it takes is one generation to forget and they will experience it.Filed under: Politics / Government, Capitalism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism
