Comment Fundamental Flaws (Score 1) 1034

The idea that society is getting collectively dumber is absolute horseshit. Since the dawn of time, people have been saying that the 'latest generation' is somehow worse. The old clichè is that the children don't respect their elders. They consistently point out the same flaws in the current society that they would have found in that of the past if they had the same perspective. Do you know what people did before computers and video games? It was by no means any less stupid or inane than what today's children are doing now. It was just them doing it, so it was someow better. It must be nice looking in from the outside.

Believe it or not, Socialism and Communism are not the same thing. Calling something 'socialist' is not necessarily meant as an insult. Consumer protection laws and bodies (Both exist in America, albeit in different forms. OSHA, labor unions, the FDA, and similar bodies of government are good examples) are a part of a socialist government. Communism has nothing to do with that, since Communism is an ecomomic system, and nothing more. Communist countries have Socialist governments, but Socialist countries don't always have a Communist economic structure.
