I really don't know where I stand.
On the one hand, I am very left wing. I think that the chasing of profit is a bad way to run everything because, when can you ever have enough profit? I think that all of the job cuts are not because the companies are going under but because the profits are falling and shareholders just want profit, they don't really care about the companies.
Ideally, I would have everything that is intrinsically linked to a persons' human rights nationalised. Power, raw materials, water, communications (to an extent, that's a tricky one) and transport. These things should be run as services. Yes, you still have to pay but the prices could be far more reasonable as they're not run for profit but obviously maintainence and progression of technologies needs to factored in to the pricing. Everything else, luxury items, keep capitalism. It's unfair, sure, but it's the best we've got at the moment. On non-essentials, there needs to be capitalism and markets. Why would you ever make doughnuts under a centralised economy? You couldn't ever justify making most of the things we take for granted as available under a centralised, demand-based, economy. Just have enough things nationalised so that the essentials can never be truly lost or restricted by those without morals who chase profits.
But there is so much more. Education, war, social issues, crime...it's pretty impossible to have an opinion on everything and it's all very fruitless.
I just want to get enough money to go and live in Maui and swim in the crystal clear water and chill out behind an awesome waterfall in a lagoon of some description.
