You don't like how things are done in NK? Huh....it's the model of pure plutocracy taken to the logical conclusion.

Um, North Korea is a socialist state, so it's more your style. Forward, bitchezs...
Um, North Korea is a dictatorship and one man has all of the money. That's the logical conclusion of plutocracy.

If they were practicing socialism, they'd have electricity, food for the masses and a much smaller military.

Do you really want to argue that North Korea is an example of pure socialism? I hope so.

Nobody actually knows what type of ideology is in North Korea.

It could be a plutocracy or a dictatorship (unlikely) but its probably a case of militarism.

I have no doubt that the military runs the show over there.

It's how it always ends up. You guys keep demanding we give an example of pure libertarianism, but the truth is that you guys can't point to a successful socialist or communist nation either, because the political leaders always end up becoming dictators (for the good of the "people" of course) and keeping them in poverty because that system just doesn't fricking work!

We aren't trying to "point to a successful socialist or communist nation". We're not socialists or communists. That's just the straw man you need to blather on with your scholarly dissertations on the merits of plutocracy.

Yeah, that's the story I keep getting from you guys. And then I ask a simple question like look over the Communist Party USA platform and tell us what you disagree with:

CPUSA Program » cpusa

And all I ever get is crickets or the occasional lame "that's an irrelevant question." But as I look over that web page, it sure seems to line up pretty good with what you guys keep saying you want. Why do you suppose that is (since you guys aren't communists and all)?

The saying is that capitalism will lead to a plutocracy as communism will lead to an oligarchy.

Almost constantly.

Liars always ignore evidence of their lies. Look at Obama.
