If I did that, I'd still be a commie! lolol...
(seriously)

So, what made you jump ship?

I realized it was bollocks...

I accepted people and natural systems as they are . (and not as some bored intellectuals think they should be).

(I had a tough time with hierarchy, too - but..it's the way it is)

Voluntary hierarchies are just fine,...

totally agree...
Meritocratic rather than dominant

dominant = communism
meritocratic = capitalism

Lol, just wont quit, will you?
How many times do i have to point you to the fact that communism predates what happened in russia and is voluntary?

Authoritarian = bullshit

lolol....and like i said - communism does work. I have never said it didn't.
It's a good, efficient, system.

But it doesn't scale up.
For it to scale up past small community size, it requires hierarchies of dominance for the larger organizational structures.
Capitalism , (in the real free market sense of the word) , scaled up , is made up of a million small communist minded communities...

hierarchies of dominance

That sounds like rule by force to me.

Demand replaces dollars as our signal for production.

Can't give your product away, produce something else.

You really should read this book.
