It is my opinion concepts and ideas containing pure truth do not require "propaganda style persuasion teqniques". Pure truth sells itself without the necessity of mind control methods designed to lure lulled minds into acceptance. When anyone uses mind control methods to sell me something, I always begin to consider why. Yes, I do have a preference for maintaining the personal freedoms of capitalism. I have thought about this extensively. Capitalism was not a system created for those who have abused that system. It is "ideally" a system that would work for small capitalistic entrepreneurship and proper personal ownership. You should not compare one completely "highly idealistic" model that would obviously realistically encounter it's own problems with another model that has been in place with ensuing problems revealed. You must also consider the older model in an equally "highly idealistic" manner, as if it were functioning as planned without its present problems, to compare apples with apples. The problems with either system are inevitably the people using it. I still prefer a model in which "All men are created equally with the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I do not prefer a system in which those in control of the system itself own everything and control everyone removing the personal freedoms of individuals from the equation. What is the difference in a resource based economy and the control of "Big Brother", other than the assumption that there are no sociopath/psychopaths involved to cause any problems within it? If there were no sociopath/psychopaths other systems would work just fine.
