That's the train station set for the Eastern front of Stalingrad. The Commissarant was just being cleaver with the bread sign.

I heard you could help fund a trip to Soviet Russia with some jeans from a thrift store. Just sell'em when you get there for more than you paid for them.

One major flaw here.

In communism, the state owns the means of production through Labor. But because the state doesn't hold laborers accountable by requiring an equal amount of self-sacrifice, people are disincentivized to work or even do their jobs correctly.

In capitalism, the state owns the means of production through the legal system. This results in greater and greater censorship as economic power gets more and more centralized through gigantic corporations like Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter , Etc. Eventually a tiny portion of successful haves end up governing the larger portion of Have-Nots who essentially become factory slaves for the corporations in one capacity or another.

Pick your poison.

OR model your economic system after the most successful social system ever created where accountability is equally distributed among all members: the family.

Your example of Capitalism is one where big Government exists.
One where we are born into slavery as tax livestock.

One might say, That's Not True Capitalism.

Edit: The Family is just Socialism on a small scale, it works because of Human's innate In-Group Preference, it is a small group of very closely related people where one or two of the members are willing to pull more than their fair share of the workload for the benefit of the group.

Capitalism is slavery. Not big goverment

If government did not exist, it would be necessary to create it. A company employing it's own security force, it's own police force, and building the infrastructure it needs ends up looking a whole lot like a government. Some even issued their own currency back in the days of company towns.

This only leads to arguing over definitions and "no true scotsman". It's much easier to speak of a "free market" instead of "true capitalism".

I think of capitalism as a manipulative and mocking term for "free market" anyway. Imagine if we would say "wordism" instead of "free speech". But instead we now refer to "free speech" as "hate speech".

Oh you come from the "That's not True Socialism" school of thought where they love to argue their economic system employing the same faulty reasoning. That's why if you point to Venezuela or any other socialist/communist structure they always tell you "it was just implemented the wrong way. if you do it my way it will work!"

The Family is just Socialism on a small scale

wrong. in Socialism there's no spanking for bad behavior, so nobody is held accountable to shitty performance.

it works because of Human's innate In-Group Preference, it is a small group of very closely related people where one or two of the members are willing to pull more than their fair share of the workload for the benefit of the group.

no it doesn't. that's why families often dissolve when they pull this type of unaccountable Socialist bullshit. that's also why the divorce rate is so high in feminist families where accountability is considered a disease and men are required to bear the burden of blame for all parties.

I'm pretty sure the ones in the bread line would be wearing USA shirts and Levi's jeans if they were allowed.
