there does seem to be a yearning
from lefties everywhere
for some kind of
socialist planned economy
with wage, price and rent controls
which seems surprising with the complete and utter failure of such schemes to date
north korea being the last of them still running
and so the most completely screwed up and inhumane nation at present
but in a few more years when the "occupy" youngsters grow up
no doubt some young fool with more self-belief than smarts will try to organise their disparate wants into pol pot's
return to year zero
The idea behind Year Zero is that all culture and traditions within a society must be completely destroyed or discarded and a new revolutionary culture must replace it, starting from scratch. All history of a nation or people before Year Zero is deemed largely irrelevant, as it will (as an ideal) be purged and replaced from the ground up.
