Vanguard, I haven't been on these forums in a while, but as of so far from what I've absorbed from your arguments, you seem to have a fundamental misunderstanding on human nature. For the most part, your logic is sound, but the information under which you base your claims on is not. You fail to understand that nobody will want to work if everyone has the same amount of money. Generally, people try to get rich not to become their richest possible selves, but to be richer than everyone else. People buy the best, coolest, newest, most expensive shoes not because he/she likes how they look, but because other people like how they look, then he/she subconsciously associates the pleasure of other people liking his/her shoes with liking how they look on him/herself. If everyone had the same exact pair of shoes, no matter how comfy or cool-looking they are, nobody would like those shoes, and thus, nobody would want to work for them. Communism doesn't work because it restricts people from affording shoes that - and here's the important part - that nobody else has, and thus, no one will want to work for new shoes.

Ok, lets go by parts.

A) Nobody will want to work if everyone has the same amount of money. If this was true Mr Toes, then why did humans worked before money was even invented? Human nature is quite a flimsy thing to use as a argument as I see it, because the way we view human nature is quite a biased thing totally based on our actual experiences, and it is a known fact that society has a big really fucking huge influence on a individual's mind. That old history of Plato not being able to conceive a society without slavery you know? Ask him what is human nature, he will tell you something completely different from say, a medieval man or a industrial revolution man.

B) A fundamental misunderstanding about human nature supposes that there is a fundamental right understanding about it, and I'm eager to hear tbh what this human nature is Mr Toes. You need to define human nature if you are going to play that card you see, quite a hard task and usually very flimsy.

C)Idk why you say that in communism everyone would have the same kind of shoe. This makes no sense Mr Toes, we never even had communism to beggin with. You are supposing how it would be, and I don't understand why it couldn't have many different types of shoes and shit. The whole thing is basically about bringing democracy to economy and the labour sphere as a whole. Also, remember that mass production is a thing that creates uniformity within society and capitalism does it already, I think its sort of unnavoidable to have some degree of uniformity. For instance, I see people here in Br using the same fucking shoes that people in USA, Russia, China and Norway use, isnt that funny.

People need the right to have more money than others

Why? I can't see the reason behind this. Its like saying a doctor deserves more money then a garbage worker man or a farmer because he studied more. If these two cathegory of workers stop for 2 weaks, the whole world simply colapses. Why some deserve more access and better conditions to their family, while others deserve to only keep looking at the cool stuff from a distance? Everyone does its part man, everyone is important as fuck.

Imagine you were playing a first-person shooter, and your team was being spawncamped, like really hard. You are a pretty good player, and so are a few of your teammates, but no matter what, you and your team couldn't get out of spawn. The enemy team is also pretty good, even better than your team, but they aren't that much better than your team. At this point, it seems obvious that your team sucks, which is why you can't get out of spawn, but no. The real reason why your team is being spawncamped is because you don't have the chance to get the killstreak necessary to call in an airstrike, and because the enemy team got a headstart somewhere, whether by luck or by skill (maybe you're playing CoD? Iunno). If you get an airstrike, your team can be freed, and you can finally even the odds. Sure, if you had someone with godlike skills on your team to push back the enemy team, you could escape from spawn, but it shouldn't take a god just to do such a simple task. Now, the enemy team is decked out in armor and bazookas and ammo and health kits ans machine guns, while your team only has a few pistols, even though the enemy team isn't a whole lot better than yours. What has now formed is a positive feedback loop, where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. At this point, the game has gotten so stale and so uncompetitive that players from your team start leaving the server, and along with your team leaves the enemy team, since they no longer have anyone to shoot. Remarkably, everyone starts off on an equal playing field with relatively equal players, but soon enough, your team gets dominated really hard. Everyone now blames the incompetent devs for not giving the losing team some kind of spawn protection, like invincibility for the first 10 seconds after you spawn. If the Devs implement spawn protection in the game, it will become much better. In an unregulated game, the noobs will be exploited, therefore the noobs can never improve, therefore the noobs will quit, therefore the veterans won't have any noobs to shoot at, therefore the veterans will quit. In a communist game, the veterans will never be rewarded for killing noobs, therefore the veterans will quit, therefore the noobs won't have any veterans to shoot at, therefore the noobs will quit. In a somewhere-in-between game, the veterans will still be rewarded for killing noobs, but the noobs will be able to improve more easily, therefore the noobs will get better, therefore the veterans will have more of a challenge to fight, therefore making the game as a whole more fun and competitive, therefore ???, therefore profit.

Holy fuck did I just type an entire fucking essay on one analogy? I hope it makes sense to you guys. If not, then fuck.

I don't get it, why in a communist game veterans wouldn't be rewarded? They would still rekt noobs because they are better. In a communist society a scientist will be smarter then a farmer, therefore he will "rekt noobs" the same way. Only difference is that the farmer, if he wants to, he will also have access to the same education and won't have his family in a fucked up condition.

To make your analogy closer to the communism X capitalism thingy, I would say that a communist game is a game where everyone has the opportunity to git gud and become competent players, like Chivalry or Mordhau you see. The opposite, a capitalist game, is a pay to win game, where no matter your skill or how much effort you put in it, someone will crush you simply because they have more money. Its absolutelly not fair, you are a better player and more dedicated, but the cancer game allows some cunt to open the wallet and destroy you even being a total scrub. Imagine if you could buy speedhacks in mordhau. As you can see, no one would voluntarily play a capitalist game, its borderline retarded.

Point being, communist society still allows you to be better then others, its unavoidable tbh. A farmer will be better then a scientist, in farming subjects, same way a scientist will be better then a farmer on science subjects. You still have your ego don't worry, people will still be allowed to think they are better then others. Only real difference is the end of poverty, both the scientist and the farmer would have access to everything produced, which as I see is a fair game, because both the sons of the farmer or the scientist will be able to chose betwen becoming farmers or scientists.

I do highly recomend that you watch the video I posted for Mr Nohbdy, you might find it interesting Mr Toes. Did I adressed properly your post? I hope I was clear in what I meant tbh

Hey Mr Tim, your video is not avaliable or some shit! Youtube is fucking with us comrade

This game man, must play it right now again for the 100 time. I love Tiberian sun tbh

Wish someone would remake them songs in higher quality or some shit. Remake the game as well pls that game deserves it more then any other! One of the best atmospheres I ever saw in a videogame, and its a goddamn rts game. Best game ever 10/10 go play right now if you haven't, play as NOD because GDI are a bunch of reactionary cunts who doesn't even have subterranian units, fuck GDI.

Here, have some nice cutscenes direct from the 90's

Interesting.. So theoretically, with that method pushed to the limit, you could slice a body virtually anywhere...

Wherever there are bones in the character skeleton. So we could cut it a few points along the torso (only horizontal cuts), and things like toes, fingers, ears. But there really aren't many bones that would make sense beyond the ones we've considered. We opted not to do torso because it looks a bit silly.

Be used to gore? Imagine these system of deformation aplyied to a body, hammers would be brutal tbh, armor damage would be fucking amazing, imagine bashing a dead full plate dude with a maul

Characters are more complex compared to cars, performance is also a huge factor here that we can't afford. If we started planning the art for Mordhau now, we'd probably try to add some more bones to the skeleton (and subsequently every piece of armor/clothing) to control deformations at certain points, which would be cheap. But it's not so easy to go back now.

@Carlo_Mano said:
What other game uses this dismemberment method?

Don't know. This was the simplest method that worked with our customization. Premade parts are a no-go for us due to customization.

@TheDankestMeme said:
will there be an option to disable those extra body parts and gore for potato computers?

Yes, you can disable dismemberment altogether on your end, so that you don't see it.

Thanks for the answer Mr Marox tbh u a good devman

You think that like, idk, 2025 we might see something like this aplyied to gore? I mean technology wise like, it will be more possible to make it happen u know what I mean? If you had to make a prediction, when do you think this sort of thing would become possible?

Holy shit Mr Marox, imagine like Mordhau 2, u guys already rich as fuck due mordhau 1, with lots of experience, a bigger team, studio, better technology etc

This is merely a matter of power and the efficacy of law enforcement. For example, the sole reason Denmark is #1 in the world in the lack of corruption is just that the government effectively enforces corruption laws. http://www.business-anti-corruption.com/country-profiles/denmark Achieving this require giving the right amounts of money to the right people, presumably to the FBI through taxation.

But if the government is corrupt, how can you even expect it to enforce anti corruption laws or even to have interest in doing such thing? The government make AND enforce the laws, it has absolute power over it. Its either revolution and kill every rulling class fucker or conformation. Its absolute tyrany man, dressed as democracy. Its a radical situation, requires radical solutions.

I didn't get what you mean. You say that to end corruption one must pay the right people, like the FBI? This doesnt make any sense man. I think I didn't understood what you mean tbh can you rephrase it please?

Denmark is actually a very good example of this kind of regulated free market capitalist economy with social programs. I don't agree with their free higher education, but of course it's debatable as to whether or not I'm wrong about higher education. Denmark's GDP per capita also rivals the USA. https://www.google.com/publicdata/explore?ds=d5bncppjof8f9_&met_y=ny_gdp_pcap_cd&idim=country:USA:RUS:GBR&hl=en&dl=en#!ctype=l&strail=false&bcs=d&nselm=h&met_y=ny_gdp_pcap_cd&scale_y=lin&ind_y=false&rdim=region&idim=country:USA:DNK&ifdim=region&hl=en_US&dl=en&ind=false

Yeah and also is a good example of a country that wasnt and isnt crushed under imperialism. As I told ya, Brazil had the opportunity to become Denmark, but USA stomped all over what could be called "legit politicians" and gave power to the actual corrupt politician cancer. This is basically the history of Latin America, a place that had everything to be great, but imperialism shits on it constantly and the population pays the price.

B) it doesn't give true control for the population about what should be done and why,

The general masses don't know the best answer for everything, especially in foreign relations and immigration policy. This is exactly what we've seen with the American public media and social media freaking out over Trump's "Muslim ban"(even though it wasn't a Muslim ban lol), even though we were just try to temporarily halt immigration for only 120 days while we prepare vetting programs AND we've already seen from the EU that just freely letting immigrants in is public order suicide. The population doesn't always know what's best for them.

And so does the rulling class. Not only that, as they also don't give a fuck to whats best for the population, thats why we divide society in classes. See Brazil for reference as I told ya, here it makes everything obvious. Also, I wouldn't say that business owners, that are actually the rulling class, care for anything aside from their own profits. See history for reference, every working class fight against the stablishment to get better conditions. I think you are supposing that the working class and the rulling class actually has the same interests, you know this isnt the case, right?

Population is clearly confused but you gotta consider the media and the rulling class itself and its intentions. Population confused is a great thing to rule you see, they can't point out whats wrong and why and will believe what authorities say lmao. Its like people who deffend free market here in Brazil, the rulling class confuse them to a point they think they got the same interests, and whats good for this rulling class will be good for the working class, which is pants on head retardo especially here in Brazil, where we already have absolute free market, basically anarcho capitalism (considering corruption and the consequential lack of control over everything).

The ruling class is not the only class giving money to the government. The people also give money to the government through taxation so that the government with defend the will of the people and act in their interests. This is why democracy is so important, that ruler of the government can only come into power if they promise to protect the will of the people. This is why Hillary Clinton failed.

Here it seems you are talking like, what it should be like, not how it actually is. Yeah the idea is beautiful isnt it, the population gives money to the State, the State supports their interest. Shit Mr Nohbdy, can you see the naive part here? What forces the State to act on the interests of the working class? Nothing, only a threat of a revolution, and even so they got the army and the media to deffend themselves from the working class.

Businessman can give fuckloads of money to the political man, to make sure he gets what he wants. All in the "backgrounds".

Politicians can promise everything and make nothing happen, capitalist democracy is way to overrated, who rulles is who actually got money, they can and do buy politicians. There is no democracy. Actually its quite a joke to call what we live in a democracy tbh how is that even possible Mr Nohbdy, unless democracy for you is simply vote for president. Then yeah, we have democracy, but what does it even matter president is a fucko who doesn't call the shots.

Businessman's little bitch thats what presidents and politicians are.

There is this very interesting series called "House of Cards", have u watched it? Honestly Id rather have the worse dictatorship, because at least its honest about what it is, then this fucking loud and colorful lie people call democracy

You know Mr Nohbdy, anarcho-communism in Spain didn't failed economically like USSR Socialism did.

That's interesting if true, but I'd like to see the data on this(from a credible source, naturally).

You can find some authors here

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolutionary_Catalonia#Bibliography

I highly recomend that you take a look at George Orwell's "homage to catalonia". Its great man

In Spain they were defeated because Nazis, capitalists, religious groups AND soviets got united to crush the revolution, it was more of a military failure as I understand it you see. The 2 years it lasted was sort of a success economic wise, especially considering the situation before the revolution. So socialism being a economic failure doesn't imply communism is, because they are completely different both in practice (that is, how production and society is organized) and in interests (where do they wanna go, what they want to archive), to the point they are enemies. Look for a man called Nestor Makhno, another communist destroied by USSR. One could argue that USSR did a better job at supressing communism then USA even, so I don't think your argument is fair. Communism should be analised separatedly from socialism, because they are completely different modes of production. What I mean is, it doesn't really make much sense to say "hey USSR socialism failed, communism is even far left, thus it would fail even harder", because they are different in practice.

Fair enough, I think I see what you're saying. Are you saying that having worker's unions run by the people decide the distribution of products as opposed to the government is the differentiating factor that makes Communism work and not State Socialism? If that is the case then couldn't the same argument saying that Market Socialism where the workers decide the distribution of products through the same process, the means of production is publicly owned, there is still a free market, money to incentivize work, and a government still exists for public services but no government command over the market could also work?
(continued)

Yeah, I guess so! The most important thing is the publicly owned means of production (as far as I understand it). I saw a very interesting TEDtalk, here take a look man

https://www.ted.com/talks/yanis_varoufakis_capitalism_will_eat_democracy_unless_we_speak_up?language=pt

I liked what this man said, I just think he doesn't take much into consideration the whole "struggle" part required to implant such systems, but anyways economic wise I find quite interesting.

Also valid about the democracy thingy you say. There is no democracy Mr Nohbdy, its a capital dictatorship.

I'll continue soon enough, also must answer Mr Monkeytoes tbh

Halberd is power Mr Furst, think about it, how nice it is to control the fight? What else do you even need?

speed

Speed is overrated tbh, A) reach allows you to hit first even with a slow as fuck weapon, most people go fast weapon because they think they can hit first but no; B) Its easier to footwork out of a fast attack then a slow one, so logically, its easier to hit someone with a slow attack then with a fast one, thus bigger fight control to you; C) fast weapons has shitty drags, thus are more predictable.

Point being, speed is overrated imo. All you need to do is ftp properly with slow weapon, like always expect a gamble or no respect for initiative when in facehug.

A reminder that this is all based on chiv. I do believe reach will still be fucking huge factor in Mordhau, but I think its not going to be as "OP" (not that it is objectively OP, but idk feels easy tbh to win with these weapons, especially duels) as in chiv, because controlling fights might be harder considering chambers and morphs, probably lower knockback values and all that shit.

Whats the biggest release and windup time in mordhau and how much time does your parry keep activated before going into recovery? Can u devmans share things about this?

Halberd anything else is pansiery

@DerFurst said:
I've got the feeling that the poleaxe is going to be an excellent all-rounder, considering it has variable reach, is that perfect midpoint between fast and slow so it has tricky timing, can take out both plate AND unarmored goons due to having an axe-head and hammer-head, and it even has a pointy stabbing end. A weapon that can do so many things seems very appealing. You might get the idea that doing too many things is bad, but if you can use that variety to throw people off, then it's extremely effective and wins at mind games.

Poleaxe is like a dumbed down halberd. It might deal many kinds of damage, but reach controls the fight, I have initiative, I feint u first, I mindgame u first. Reach forces people into defensive, which is quite a bad position to be at tbh

Halberd is power Mr Furst, think about it, how nice it is to control the fight? What else do you even need?

Visual effect is cool, taking damage is shit idea.

Imagine I have 1hp left and punch plate armor man and die. Wtf is this game even, this would not only suspend my immersion as in this process I would call the devs a lot of bad names, question my whole existence and why I waste my time with videogames and stupid ass forums while I could be shooting myself in the face instead

Visual effects are really a cool idea though comrade I really like it and thinking about, it its something chiv lacks and I have never thought about it tbh. Why doesn't hands get bloody when you blow someone's head off? Now it seems like such a obvious thing to have. Indeed it would add a lot to immersion these sort of details.

I guess that Rockstar is a nice example here, on how little details adds up to a amazing bigger picture in the end, GTA5 for reference.

I agree tbh, we should see and test it first and then discuss it with the devs.

The only issue that I see as a problem, is it causing a divide in the community. For example, lets suppose 3rd person guys are all kinda noobs right, that think some things are OP because they can't see properly because 3rd person itself, they ask to nerf said thing, but its balanced in 1st person. This leave us in a cancerous situation of 1st person X 3rd person debates.

BUT, this will probably happen even if its just first person, noobs might see balance in a different way and cause a divide in the community anyways. Idk really

Hey Mr Roshawn, how is it going here in Br? Liking the place?

Carnaval is going to happen really soon, are u staying here to see it?

I love it, the city i'm at is this tech city in development called cidade pedra branca. I didn't think a city like this existed in Brazil.

sala-palhoca-cidade-universitaria-pedra-branca-2210166-56240

The building in the center is called the Atrium and is where the academy i'm going to is located.

Also yeah i'm definitely going to get to experience Carnaval, i'm quite lucky to have come here during part of the year this festival happens. It's apparently the biggest party in the world that happens all across Brazil for an entire week.

Yeah man this country is fucking funny! Misery, chaos and brutal capitalism. Then, out of the fucking nowhere, fucking future city of doom where americans go have classes about future stuff and Br people doesn't even know it exists. Hahah we need to kill our rulling class asap. As a wise Mason vanguard said once at stoneshill, "A HUNDRED GOLD PIECES FOR THE MAN WHO BRINGS ME THE KINGS HEAD"

@vanguard said:

Well then you have a lot to mix here in Br tbh. I don't even know what you gonna mix here that will make it work, and I can't honestly seeing it work unless you kill all the actual rulling class (both government and business owners) and replace it, otherwise whatever you try out here will get corrupted in a matter of seconds. Which leads us to capitalism failures

Allow me to explain my position, first of all. I think it would help the both of us in this conversation. I believe in a progressive taxation that is not too high to cause small businesses to go bankrupt as it is the most important source of market competition, while taxing the upper class' income tax more harshly to make it considerably harder for them to control the supply of goods within the market and eliminate competition.
Naturally, I am in full support of the regulations in place by the US anti-trust laws and against insider trading as well. Lastly, I think that health care(emergency procedures in particular) should be considered a protective public service akin to the police or military and should thus be "free" and paid by taxation. All of this things are meant to create a better distribution of wealth, drive down prices, and improve the quality of goods through competition in the economy. If your economics are too far right-wing(laissez-faire capitalism), you end up with monopolies and predator corporations that eliminate competition and control all of the supply within the market to drive up prices, provide no economic opportunity for the lower class, and create the massive poverty you talk about. If you go too far left-wing on the other hand(command market socialism and communism being even further left), history tells us from the USSR who used a command market that great poverty happens because the lack of competition is inherent in this system and this causes a huge lack of productivity. Communism would only amplify this issue as it is even further left so it eliminates competition the labor incentives even further.

The Worker's Party here in Brazil (altough the name suggest something socialist, they are centrist) tryied this. But you know a problem with market regulation Mr. Nohbdy? Is that it requires people to respect said regulations, and money buy whoever enforces it. Brazil is free market but not officialy, you know what I mean? There is absolute no respect for the institutions like the State, Laws etc here

Corruption is everywhere here police, labour unions, mayors, top tier politicians, businessman. You basically can bypass every law and do whatever fuck you want (literally anything you imagine), as long as you got money for it.

People sort of had hope in Worker's Party you know, even me tbh, that they would fix this mess by doing things like you are saying, make capitalism more fair. They got into power, and instead of doing what they said they would do, and it was huge what they said Mr Nohbdy, they sold out completely, I mean yeah they didn't privatized the whole country, and actually did a few social programs to help with poverty who were actually kinda effective, but in this process they started to have a debt with the people allowing them to govern, so they did a lot of free market practices as well and fucked everyone, but even so they got impeached via political coup. Point being, the state is totally under control of private "obscure interests", its a hostage.

So you see Mr Nohbdy, we are fucked up beyond all repairs, and thats why I tell ya we need to kill every cunt at the rulling class and tell the superpowers to fuck off, and once thats done, then we can talk about how to make fair capitalism over here, we then can talk about democracy as well because at the moment none of this even exist, only as propaganda and a materialized lie (elections for example). Its like 3 families + USA who control the whole fucking country, doesn't matter who you elect for president. If the president somehow don't play its role, a coup fix it all. This is not only with Br as you might know, every country suffer from this evil to a certain degree, Br just make it clear as water because the "obscure interests" or establishment don't give a flying fuck to what people say or think. They rule, fuck you, period. Gibe monei HUEHUEHU

This impeachment thingy, I saw in a news site that Hilary guys were behind it, so even the fucking US government people are involved on the shit that happens here and this is no news and wouldn't surprise me if its actually real, see operation condor for reference. Private companies does the bigger damage imo tho, buying mayors and every sort of politician, this has a fucking huge impact on urbanization and its problems for example.

So while yes, I think your moderate capitalism is better then actual capitalism A) I don't see how it can be implemented without a real violent revolution, and I don't see the point to make a violent revolution to end up in capitalism again and give oportunity for other countries to imperialism us to oblivion again due economic superiority; B) it doesn't give true control for the population about what should be done and why, it still is the rule of "obscure interests", we must have faith in business owners, statesman etc C) way too vulnerable to imperialism and corruption, "victories" archived under this regime can be easily rolled back (as its happening right now in Br after the impeachment, the little "victories" of WP are all being rolled back) and D) you can have every law controlling the market AND free market at the same time due corruption, all these laws and regulation in the end means fuckall if the rulling class keeps footworking away from them and buying everything not giving a flying fuck.

You know Mr Nohbdy, anarcho-communism in Spain didn't failed economically like USSR Socialism did. In Spain they were defeated because Nazis, capitalists, religious groups AND soviets got united to crush the revolution, it was more of a military failure as I understand it you see. The 2 years it lasted was sort of a success economic wise, especially considering the situation before the revolution. So socialism being a economic failure doesn't imply communism is, because they are completely different both in practice (that is, how production and society is organized) and in interests (where do they wanna go, what they want to archive), to the point they are enemies. Look for a man called Nestor Makhno, another communist destroied by USSR. One could argue that USSR did a better job at supressing communism then USA even, so I don't think your argument is fair. Communism should be analised separatedly from socialism, because they are completely different modes of production. What I mean is, it doesn't really make much sense to say "hey USSR socialism failed, communism is even far left, thus it would fail even harder", because they are different in practice.
Socialism is like a surrogate capitalism, that will do basically the same shit it does, but the idea is to make the working class to not get so shitty conditions (but still get fucked), and prepare it to overcome itself as far as I understand it. Communism is the overcome of capitalism, its completely different and we really didn't really had much experiences with it, they were kinda short tbh but showed a lot of potential imo.

So having what I said in mind, I do think that anarcho communism is a great idea because

A) completely destroies artificial poverty caused by money, and taking the spanish case as a example it might actually improve production in a few sectors (like agriculture) and others might take a hit (industry) like you say. But I think these problems are solvable, we built fucking rockets and went to the moon for christs sake, can't we organize a factory in a way that is productive and democratic? Anyways, I think the economical distribution benefits are superior to the negative impact in production, and in the long term production can be solved via advanced automation technologies;
(insert "muh nature" argument here against what I said; I'll deal with this when answering Mr Toes, but as a preview, even suposing our nature doesnt allow it, we are rational beings and we can overcome nature. Capitalism itself already did it in many aspects.)

B) political power is decentralized, effective democracy both in the political sphere as in the workplace, city etc. Its easier to corrupt a man then a whole population;

C) since its a complete rupture with the actual mode of production, it is also a complete rupture with imperialisms of all kinds and the old order will only be reestablished via war, that would be quite costly considering the size and population of Brazil (better yet, imagine whole latin america, or many places on the world at the same time), not to mention the repercution of high-tech armies rekting barely armed free peasants and workers, heavy anti war and anti capitalist propaganda etc.

What I think is, while capitalism does make things more productive in a few countries, its costs are too damn high for everyone else. Look at the world man, most of it is a fucking shithole while the example of good capitalism is just a few countries. It is a mode of production that if you consider the fact its a worldwide thing, has infinite problems with distribution as a whole, distribution of wealth, technology, education, production etc. It concentrates everything you see, and keeps it this way via imperialism.

Fuck I hope I made sense Mr Nohbdy, basically I like your idea of fair capitalism and centrism, but I can't see it working due relations between countries and also power problems and corruption in general.

This is how I view the idea you exposed, and also what I think should happen and why. I'll answer the second part soon, and Mr Toes as well. Remember, its right around the corner guys!
