I'm tired of hearing people talk about Capitalism vs. Socialism. As far as I am concerned, Socialism fully implemented, leads to oppression by the state and Capitalism, fully implemented, leads to oppression by the rich. Truth is, these theoretical states of Capitalism and Socialism have never fully existed in any system, and will never fully exist. Saying these "ism"s are like saying Upism vs. Downism: you never fully are "up" and you never fully are "down", it's only in relation to where you are at the moment.
So rather that waste our time with "ism"s, why don't we focus on American solutions, which means digging through our past, seeing what works and what can be applied to our current situation, shall we?
