: 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?

Well as a fairly moderate socialist I wouldnt mind being a reasonably paid bureaucrat or something but I see what your saying, Utopia might just take longer first you've got to demonstrate to people that anything other than this right of the right of centre blairism is credible then they might think, hey, this is liberal crap and move further to the left.

Anyway if you where attacking planning, dont you acknowledge that planning takes place in anarchist societies too?
