Based on right-wing critics of communism, a mode of production should be dismissed out if hand if one of these is true of any one State which claimed to be upholding it:

- it descended into authoritarianism

- it carried out a genocide of some kind

- a famine ever took place there

- it repressed individual liberty in any way

How, I wonder, would capitalism fare if the same standards were applied to its own evaluation?


@garfiald can't change capitalism because we might di the same thing. Or we might fix all of our problems and live in a perfect utopia. Could go either way. Best to just keep being predictable, though.
