    Of course communism has never been tried properly. A Dictator or two, facists generally, over the years may claim they have. So we have Capitalism, well that works for most of us. Most of us that live in the western world anyway.

    Feudalism may not have been so bad. You manage the land (ie meat and veg) for the Lord of The Manor and he gave you free housing, food and made sure you had rest days. You get sick, the Lord of The Manor suffers. LOTM therefor looks after you.

    As you point out Aggie, Utopia just aint gonna happen while humans are around.

    Sorry to witter on, and no, i'm not a left wing looney, just a looney!

    John, ever hear of a thing called the United order? Advanced warning when you look it up, it too failed for the same reasons communism failed. Basic human psychology, people like to be rewarded. If one is rewarded more than another it starts the break down of the system. If one doesn't contribute as much as the next it breaks down. In an ideal it would be wonderful. We just do not live in an ideal world where everyone thinks and behaves the same. Besides it would be damn boring.
