communism never existed. its a big big failure of the mainstream to think
that the east would have had something todo with communism. the usa is
more communist than china and cuba might have some socialist attitude
but after all it stays a dictatorship.

our economy today is capitalism more than any economy
before. capitalism is not limited to the industrialization
age. capitalism is the economy which works on base of private
capital. capital can be anything with value which gains more value out
of itself. another main quality of capitalism is the competition and
this is also more stronger than ever today.
