Why Communism and mass charity do not work: 4/1/2017 15:46:22

Investment is better than charity/welfare. Ultimately a group of self-interested people contribute more to others through trade than selfless people through redistribution. This is why Communism and mass charity/welfare do not work.

Both is wrong. Best are selfless investments.

^Nah. What I mean is pursuing material wealth is good as long as the means through which wealth is obtained does not harm others. No wealthy society is wealthy because of selflessness. Instead self-interest regulated by laws (to prevent theft and robbery from being popular) makes a society successful.

This is an essence of Felinism.

One key issue with traditional societies is that wealth was not really protected.

But obtaining wealth for the sake of it itself is blasphemy. If you do not exploit humans, you exploit all other living beings instead. What do you have against cooperation?

^I don't oppose cooperation. In fact it is good. Cooperation means let's do things to benefit each other. That's not altruism. Altruists do not care about themselves and sometimes don't really care about others either. Instead some of them only care about some collective entity even if it means sacrificing individual members of it or some dogma which is considered more important than human lives.

Yes if everyone obtain wealth for the sake of it without harming others then everyone will be better off.

Laws should be around to prevent humans from harming each other and do almost nothing else. The goal is to leave crimes professions of irrational sociopaths alone for laws can convince even rational sociopaths to not harm others.

One problem with Communism, National Socialism, Christian charities and Muslim charities is identical, namely opposition to pursuit of wealth.

There are at least two problems here. One is that humans always want to pursue something. If wealth which can be created and shared can not be pursued they will pursue something else, such as power. Power can not be shared and struggle over absolute power is usually much more bloody than pursuit of money.

The second problem is that legitimate human needs and desires if satisfied through beneficial means are good or at least not harmful. Having less needs results in less production and everyone ends up being poorer.
