: There's a lot of people with FAITH in the market and others with FAITH in the state. Either way an oligarchy of privileged elites are sticking it to everyone else, regardless of class, colour, creed etc. (well if your in the third world your easier target right enough but anyway), it wont be resolved by some mismass of "libertarian" rethoric which is based on the ideas of people who thought unmolested entreprenurship would smash oligarchal rule and not reshape it. It's failed etc. lets move on.

: A planned economy isnt the answer in isolation either.

But is any kind of planned economy the answer since it involves elites excerting control over communitys, insteasd of the communitys taking the important decisions in their lives themselves?
