Thread Name: BS: Why do we need money?
Subject: RE: BS: Why do we need money?
But Eastern European state capitalists projects were not moneyless societies. Whether a bureaucratic elite of the state effectively owns and controls the means of production or private individuals do it means that most people don't. Socialism is social ownership and thus democratic control and free access to goods and services, those things didn't happen and couldn't happen in east europe.

I think a moneyless society could only operate on a world scale, as the money society opereates, and small scale attempts would be bound to fail.
