Communism/Socialism/Radicalism - NOT the way. Freedom for All!
davidohgdf posted a topic in The PodiumI am fairly new to this forum and have noticed that a large majority of the so called political parties who would have you vote for them present themselves under the banners of Radical Communist or Socialist ideals. I have also noticed that not many have said anything about this, though I believe someone should, so I will. (Disclaimer) To those of you whom I am addressing, I do realize that this is a game and everyone is entitled to their own opinions so please keep in mind that this is mine. Now back to what I was saying, communism is not an ideal system of governing for Identity, there are many reasons why it would not work but I will only touch on a few now. Many of these political parties claim to be for the people just as they have in history, the only issue is that there is no struggle or strife for which these radicals can prey on. The fictional universe that we are taking part of was designed as a democracy, freedom and agency to do as you please whenever you want. Communism would be contradictory to what Identity is, a place for all to be free of societal systems that bound us by a rigid system that is made in the name of the people. I understand that some of the aforementioned parties do not state they are radical (though some implicitly do) if not in a radical form there is simply no use for these pure Communistic or Socialistic systems to be in place, it would be beneficial to use what is used in modern society today, a hybrid democracy that utilizes capitalism and some socialist ideas. Allowing for free agency but also strengthening the communal aspects of society as well, ( As much as you could in a fictional world ). I guess what I am trying to say is that these parties are not necessary and I would go as far as to say that they may be harmful to the community as a whole. I have been a part of many communities like Identity and have watched radical ideals and "Clubs" ruin the fun for many. Keep in mind this is not me saying that it will happen, if you have a group or Party like this you may have only the best intentions and would never dream of letting it happen. Still, I say it is better to maintain what works, leave no room for catastrophic meltdowns of society. I do not believe when Karl Marx created his philosophy did he ever imagine the harm it would bring but nevertheless, it did. Democracy is the best bet for identity and the best method of having a great time too! P.S. Please keep in mind that these are my opinions, I reserve the right to hold them just as you are. I would love feedback and if you would like to expand on it, feel free. I am open to criticism and in fact welcome it, we would be nowhere without it. All I ask is that if you do, keep it civil and somewhat educated.
