comment. IMHO mixed Capitalist/Socialist/Peer economies provide the
highest quality of life for the greatest number. But even these suffer
from excessive centralised control. Wherever command and control is
de-centralised it seems to improve things, but there is constant
pressure in all the tribes to aggregate power into the centre.
And of course, centralised-decentralised, and controlling-anarchic are
both orthogonal to capitalist-communist.
ps. Anarcho-Capitalist or Anarcho-Syndicalist, that's the real choice.
