    I should change my type to whatever I test as, and take the test like every week. Today I'm an INFP.

    I think all of TypoC should take the test daily and change their type accordingly for a week or two every year. The ensuing confusion would be pretty amusing.

    Is there any lonelier feeling than "1 member and 0 guests".

    Has anyone seen Mike Moore's movie Capitalism, A Love Story?

    I mean, even allowing for Moore's tendencies towards sensationalism, it tells a pretty awful tale of an economy, and maybe even an socio-economic model, in decline.

    Its all Capone now rather than Smith and there's no mistake at all, its all predation and no production, when I think about how things are in the UK, with politicians fighting hard and dirty to protect the ever shrinking legacies of non-productive wealth of either their families or constituency things are a little bleak for the english speaking world.

    Nope. I want to, but since I already have slight socialist tendencies, I'm afraid that the movie would make me run away to China and join their communist party.

    I dont know about that, Moore seems to be all American, religiously and ethically motivated democrat, just concerned about how some elites have hijacked his country and the economy and jammed the system with some pretty convincing propaganda that serves them and them alone.

    Market maoism hasnt much to recommend it BTW, the communist party in China has faced some major monkey wrenching or resistance from internal socialist elements who think that they've betrayed their originating ideas or ideology. Kinda like some of the "conservative" opposition in the US who thinks the US government has become treacherous.

    Two different countries, two very different opposition movements, both of a "conservative" or "traditionalist" character, both have governments whose future depends upon "business confidence", ie managing the opposition while the elites cash in.

    I'm beginning to think that the whole thing is like rearranging deck chairs on the titanic though, this whole arrangement can last but I dont know what'll happen when its all ruined though. Not the advent of any classless society or workers paradise though.

    I think both capitalism and socialism at the very core have good intentions, but everything is bound to fail once humans really get their hands on it.

    My government is pretty corrupted, so I have been disillusioned for a long time. I saw a documentary once about the American elites who were obscenely rich and I realized then that it's the same over the world.
