No, they're not!


Er... yes. Yes they are. Based on some of your other posts I've read, I'd assumed you were a student of economics as well, but socialism and communism are very definitely economic systems. I'm not sure why you'd think otherwise.

I mean, maybe you're getting the Marxist IPE perspective (which can be colloquially known as socialist or communist, I guess) mixed up with the systems themselves, but it's the same difference as classical-liberalism and capitalism share. One's a perspective, the other is a system.

Or maybe you're just trolling and I can't tell because I suck at the internet.

I didn't say they're not economic systems, I said that they're not solely economic systems. Perhaps it didn't come out not clear.

Well if the world is going overpopulate then i guess the moon is the only valid option to colonize either that or we all go full nuclear warfare.

For the survivors that would be plain calamitous. Who wants to live their lives choking on a radioactive cloud, or living in a dystopian landscape?

A plague. Human beings are vulnerable to almost any type of diseases and it should be transmitted sexually so they can be reluctant to engage in intercourse and repopulate. Think of it as a nature brush fire, it's natural and potentially when the disease does its job humans can develop a cure for it and life continues on with fewer people.

The Aids epidemic and contraception has proven that wrong.

Humanity will eventually come to blows on a much larger scale then a fist fight in probably at the most, 60 years. What is the most valued resource in the world? Oil. Lets face it, the oil supplies are going to run dry. What will happen when oil starts running out? War. Wars will start breaking out all over the world.

Also, due to the greenhouse effect of carbon dioxide, the ice cap on the norhtpole is melting. Whats underneath the polar icecaps? Trapped methane gas. There is no way at this point we can stop it. We literally set a timer for ourselves to make our mark that won't last forever. THat methane gas is like 4 times as bad a greenhouse gas as CO2. Then the process repeats itself the Greenhouse gas will keep melting the icecaps. Once the icecaps melt fully in 100-150 years, people will start moving towards central locations away from the previously habitable coastline. Most of the East coast of the U.S. will be underwater! When humanity gets really cramped. Genocide. Look at Germany during and before WWII, Germany was overpopulated. That's why they started to invade neighboring countries, but also they did the holocaust. Now before I get flamed for talking about this let me explain. The holocaust, yes it was a terrible thing, but it was a means to an end. One, it reduced the population in Germany to reasonable levels. Two, the nazis were trying to make "the perfect race" but that is not what we are talking about. When the population starts fighting itself it will be gruesome so many lives will end up being lost because of that we don't nee to worry about unpopulating the earth. The Earth will fo it for us.

Germany wasn't overpopulated. Hitler merely wanted more land for Germany. The idea that the Teutonic people were living in insufficient space and therefore needed to expand was there long before Hitler came to power. Hitler merely added a racist overtone to such a gruesome idea.

And no, anyone that thinks the Holocaust was a means to an end, i.e, reducing the population, that is cruel hogwash.
