As far as I know socialism and capitalism are economic systems/models while communism, democracy are political.
Is there any country with democracy and socialism implemented?

Sorry, I thought it said socalist, and I was like, "like, I am so totally a socalist" so I picked that one.

My political views are complicated, and currently lean towards sortition-based democracy.

My economic views see markets as a tool - an approach which, while cool and useful in the general, has certain shortcomings which make it inapplicable to many of the big problems.

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the culture of naive fools and conmen, the former convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and the latter arriving by the busload to devour them.

Don't let the Anarchists win

Vote Socialist  Cheesy

i guess its not surprising how many people dont care for politics.. in today's world its complete BS. we are given a vote, to make us feel in control, but we all know who what controls the world.... money




Bitcoin, is here to give the money control of the world Back to the people
Our cause is noble!
Our method is unstoppable!
Our success is unavoidable!

That. Though I would use slightly different wording: the market is a tool that needs to be set up correctly, otherwise it will develop undesired behavior.

Since anyone understanding that should hate the broken dynamics that appear in both centralization of the economy and problem-solving (socialists) and insufficient rule-sets (anarchy). So there are only two correct answers:

"other" or "libertarian," depending on how flexible one defines libertarianism.

Sadly, the world doesn't give a shit about correct answers. Very especially if the relevant time-scale exceeds a few years.

I didn't expect that result.

Interestingly if Anarchists were to educate everybody who doesn't care and they would join it would have the majority Shocked (Not any more at the time of writing it was  Roll Eyes )

From my world view those terms are as appropriate as it gets.

But I can't be objective as a primitivist anarchist rooted in futurism.  Wink

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

What?  No option for Monarchy?  You know, for completeness...not that I'd pick it, unless I got to be the king.

Well, I don't care about politics because I think it is a very inefficient way to change the world. Much better way to change the worls is through developing & promoting new technologies. Such as bitcoin.

There is someone else like me!  Our sample size has increased!

Introducing constraints to the economy only serves to limit what can be economical.

I hope nobody expects a half reliable outcome from this vote about bitcoiners general political views (I wont go into detail why this vote is too random). But to make it more "representative" lets add "conservative", "green", "communist" and "national socialistic".

For the record: Socialism is a political AND economical idea, same goes for communism.

Dear adamamsdflskdfsotoibutiggit,

I'd be most specif

the internet will create is creating a new nationalism with strong / accurate political ideologies
current politics will slowly be assimilated into this new political ideology
