    Is anybody courageous enough to discuss this topic?
    Are there inherent deficiencies among certain ‘groups’?
    Hoping Mac1958 will help out with this one.

    Perhaps you can begin with a description and examples of this term, "Communism-lite".

    Then I'll be happy to weigh in.

    I’m in...
    Different IQs will see a “problem” differently; and as such... will formulate a different solution for the perceived “problem”.

    Correll, this is the kind of thing I'm talking about.

    We can avoid it, ignore it, downplay it and deflect from it, but that's simply an insult to those who know better.

    That’s your idea of “weighing in”?

    So, I guess you mean Venezuela. Which, of course, no one is suggesting we emulate. As we all know.

    I'd guess it doesn't work there for two primary reasons: They've effectively been under a dictatorship of one kind or another for a long time now, and have moved far too far to the Left. Much farther than, for example, the European countries that practice Democratic Socialism.

    I don't know that is has anything to do with skin color, but I certainly assume that you do.
