Much the same rules as the ranting and raving thread, let's try to keep it clean, people.

money, bartering, trading
So without money, bartering or trading, how would goods transactions occur? Or are you suggesting no transactions at all? Wouldn't we be far behind what we are now if economies didn't specialise and trade?

well this is kinda sad that i'm saying this right now but it's true
the idea of communism sounded good to people when there was no such thing as communism.... it sounded so PERFECT, it would make everyone equal ............ but people didn't know back then that it would be an impossible thing to do
but w/e
i just wanted to say that there are some things that will eventually happen anyway .... LIKE COMMUNISM someone would've came up with a similar idea sooner or later

i still can't think of anyting that i wish was never invented !
i guess it's just my way thinking " anything that happens is for the better " and withought some invetions other GOOD inventions would've been impossible

That's true Vicky, communism sounded great before people actually gave it a go. It promised equal opportunity and equal rights for everyone. Though in retrospect, all we can say that we wish it wasn't thought up

why?... the thought of how part of your life were spent on those non-reality things hurts you to..? :confused:
Oh actually that makes sense. If those things didn't exist, I'd be topping the grade at uni :)

life was much better when people were all hard-working peasants. greed would not be so much of an issue to deal with. right now even with all the technology work-hours have not gone down, life is not made any easier. physical strain has been replaced by psychological, leaving us physically unfit and obese while battling psychological and mental illnesses
