I wasn't saying you advocated communism, nor that communism sucked.
Communism is beautiful in theory. I was just pointing out that most

participated and that capitalism has the advantage that non-participants
(non-capital holders in this case) don't cause the system to fail for
participants. This is not to say that one is better than the other.
