If only geography, weather and people were homogenous. But as it is, another cumbersome failed ideology that couldn't compete with nimble responses to variables that the free market provides.If you want socialist views on it, you can read almost any of Marx's works. However, since you're probably not going to do that, I'll give you a quote from Lenin that addresses it pretty well:
Perverted sense of bossing you've got. Equivalent of bullying. Bosses in the mine might bully. However, the goal is not bureaucracy but a product that is desired by consumers willing to trade their labor in exchange and NOT a product shoved down consumers' throats by you, er, by committee planners.Because it's basic democracy. I'm guessing you're sympathetic to the Republican Party, so tell me this - There's a Republican majority in the House of Representatives right now. Do you feel that they are "bossing around" the Democrats in the House? I doubt most people would see it that way. There can still be compromises and respectful discussion just like there is in any democratic institution. In fact, having it on such a small scale would make it so that there is less "bossing around".
