    Some inane genetics I suppose.
    And what does this have to do with capitalism?

    How do you think that will work out in a globalised economy? All the capable people emigrate to countries willing to reward them for their efforts, all the incapable people stay.

    I don't see your criminal situation improving much.
    I don't see it panning out like that myself. The left wing is dead. Criminals rule the waves from now on.

    Yes, capitalism is the sole cause of criminality. It is well-known that in the Soviet Union no-one ever did anything bad and there was always enough food to eat and everything was always happy and magical.

    Genes are selfish and so is capitalism.

    You must be joking. There is a rise in nationalism but the left wing is strong as ever.

    I suggest you have a chat with some pre-millennials from the balkan states and have them explain how wonderful communism is.

    no one did anything bad because you would be taken by the NKVD. and probably sent to the gulag. people were mostly too scared to commit a crime.

    and no there wasn't always enough food to eat. look at the 1930s Holodomor.

    capitalism is flawed, but Stalinist 'communism' was especially flawed- if anything it was a dictatorship. the soviet union was, quite frankly, ****.

    Not in that particular post no.

    I don't understand your logic. I assume by criminal underclass you mean welfare sponge criminals/chavs?
    As welfare is a socialist system, I don't see how you think you'll fix this by bringing more of the same socialism.

    No their poverty is nothing to do with it. I hate their personality. I hate the criminal underclass and I think they are right wing. They're not lovable rogues they are scum.

    They are often perceived as right wing so lets install the complete opposite system just to spite them? You'll find that some may have right wing beliefs but they are a product of left wing policies like the welfare state and the destruction of the nuclear family.

    Yes but no. Anything has to be better than the criminal underclass.

    No I wasn't. Russia has always been autocratic. Communism would be different in England.

    A true right wing government would halt all child support for families that allow truancy.
