Are there honestly still people that don't favor a mixed economy?
I cannot name one command or market economy in history that has left most of it's population with a decent standard of living. Yet in much of the western world today more people have weather proof houses than those who don't, indoor plumbing, electricity, internet, and we have more opportunities for leisure than almost any other society in history. I say we live quite comfortably. I don't understand why there are so many radicals today who have the time to discuss politics on the internet from their comfy home that want to change this. Instead they could be working all day then come home to, clean up their own fecal matter, fetch and boil their water, farm their own food, and end their day on some uncomfortable bed unable to keep the harsh cold away.

Mixed economies vs Command economies is one thing. I won't discuss that. But market economies are fucking retarded. Not one state has ever developed industry with a full market economy. All industrial development has been done involving government direction and/or protectionism.
