[QUOTE=“Canuck Young Tory, post: 215961, member: 4383”]individuals operating for profit by nature must create value and are encouraged to create value in a capitalist system.[/QUOTE]
Only the socioeconomic class that defines capitalism, the bourgeoisie, does not create value. In fact a rewording of your next statement describes this quite well:
“The bourgeoisie does not create value (for the most part), instead it just takes value from the proletariat and gives it to itself.”
[QUOTE=“Canuck Young Tory, post: 215961, member: 4383”]A government does not create value (for the most part), instead it just takes value from one and gives it to another. The only place were a government creates value is in things like infrastructure and protection were a service is needed but has significant start up costs/advantages to having a monopoly. otherwise free markets are much better. Furthermore, the bigger the government, the smaller the people and too much power in the hands of the state CAN (and in the case of the USSR, North Korea, China, Cambodia, Cuba, and all of the communist countries to date, DID) lead to political corruption and oppression.[/QUOTE]
The rest of your declarations can be summarized into a misconception that communism as a system entails the complete takeover of the state (when it actually entails the complete dismantlement of the state) and/or that the power of the state is literally the only thing that defines Marxist-Leninist ideology. And that’s not even saying anything about “the government creating value”, whatever the hell that is supposed to mean.
