: : Don: It kinda seems world socialism requires people to adjust their desires way down . . . I don't think I'd bet people are going to do this.

: SDF: I would imagine that under world socialism as RD has described it, the 800 million people in the world who are chronically malnourished will see their desires go up, as well as their means of meeting those desires, for they will no longer be hungry.

Don: I don't doubt this is one of RD's goals. I just don't think it's achievable by world socialism.

: Besides, the thread about desire and capitalism is also occuring here...
