    Genetic explanations replacing accountability, morality, punishment, unhappiness, responsibility. Everyone will do anything without a second-thought.

    I predict that there will be some big class battles. Oh wait, that will be soon with the Tory government.....

    I've been referred to as more of a neo-communist, truth be told i don't know the difference but i was told by a uni educated friend.

    I love Utopiacs, I think I would be one myself, but the more history I read the more I realise human history is cyclical and that it really just follows some grand chaotic fractal schema which sees cycles of growth and civilisation collapse in to entropy and decay over and over again.

    I'm glad there are people who believe in a progressive development of humanity though because they are often drivers of positive change in life, full of inspired energy.

    Human history may well be cyclical, that's not to say human future will be also.

    I'm a liberal socialist marxist neo-communist utopiac!!! wahey, i'm gonna include that on the next census!!! :biggrin1:

    Sounds a bit boring, Mitch...what will people aim for??

    I think when the need to strive for basic everyday needs is taken away, life becomes soulless and depressing. :frown1:

    Does a child have the need to strive for anything? Nope.

    If people worked less and had more time to enjoy life then people would'nt be so stressed or depressed. There would be little crime.
    And ultimately the very thing that most people want is just to be happy. Life as it is spoils hopes and dreams more than encourage them.

    Speaking as someone who strives to make ends meet from the start of a month to the end i can tell you that life already feels soulless and depressing.

    I try not to think about government to much. Everyone's so angry about everything all the time. Democrats and Republicans and Conservatives and Librals and Independents.... does any of that really matter? Any of the titles? Can't we just all work together on the problems and leave the hate out of it.:rolleyes:

    I agree. That would be a boring existence. If you don't produce anything, if you are just given everything you consume, you would not put much value on anything.
