    Huh, I seemed to have moved much more to the Libertarian side than the last time I took it.

    I'd say we have the greatest understanding of how the world works, hence why we understand that for a large majority of the population, capitalism hasn't worked.

    Communism worked so well for the Chinese and Soviets, didn't it? I mean, it's not as if there were wide spread famines, and executions of dissidents, or anything like that, right?

    No offense. I am far better off living in a capitalist nation having freedoms granted to me than living in burden and oppressed in a communist nation like post-reform PRO, Soviet Union, and former Warsaw Pact nations.

    To be honest, this is not the good place to be discussion deep political debates in a political compass thread :p.

    China and the USSR weren't communist. They did showcase that Leninism doesn't work though.

    The United States has experienced widespread famines as a result of its economic policies as well. At least Soviet ones can be partially blamed on successive catastrophic wars.

    And, of course, it has executed dissidents.

    True Communism is Anarchy. Democratic Socialism is the best alternative for rich countries, and another form of Socialism (non-democratic due to more pressing matters, and the fact that most people are uneducated) for poorer countries.
