Could a "bottom up" approach version of Socialism work?

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Government would still say no out of "majority rules"..........and would completely ignore the reasons as to why they feel that way.

So when you win I WIN!

Speaking of good buddies, God says Hi! :D

Speaking of how people cannot agree, even when they share the same genetic makeup and worship the same God, albeit in different semitic languages...

So, being new to this forum and all, I went looking for a something interesting to talk about (or maybe a pot to stir) and I came across this question. In reading the thread, however, I didn't come across a lot of answers. Ok, there were answers, but nothing particularly convincing. It seems mostly to consist of the same old inch deep, out of the box caricatures (with the exception of the post on neighbourhoods...that was interesting). For the most part, here and elsewhere, the entire argument is premised on a misunderstanding of the nature of not only socialism, but capitalism, fascism..and various and sundry other isms. It's July and while we're waiting on Mr. Gillis to make bold moves (perhaps by making no more that's bold!), why don't we solve this old problem once and for all?
