I don't think you'll find many American tourist which would tell you that China is an unsafe place.
...



Au contraire, N Korea is a much "communist preferred top destination" for U.S. Americans as evidenced by visitors now historic such as Otto Warmbier. Others even work there or used to work there until Donald Trump put an end to academics working at a private university in Pyongyang.

I wouldn't expect you to admit that you don't know the difference between communism and socialism.
To tell you the truth, the difference can be a constant source of debate.
I wouldn't want to delve into it myself. I would be a waste of time.
The point is, the people who produce the wealth, the laborers, should get much more of a share
in their creations than the rich who rule over them. The rich couldn't set a large stone if their
lives depended on it.
Do you know of any billionaires who worked 20,000 times longer or harder for each of those
billions than an average laborer?

Robert, "the workers should be paid much more than the rich for their work" is an axiom that cannot be proved.

Why should they get paid more than their employers who cannot do the jobs of their workers? It's a world of assumptions in a box separated from reality.

Where did you get that quote from?

The workers outnumber the rich by hundreds to one.
Simple arithmetic would give the works, as a whole, more of a share than the rich.
Divided by that metric the workers would still be paid less than the rich.
But not by the monstrously low ration that they have been in the past.
There needs to be a correction in this ratio that has been going the wrong way
since the 1980s in the US for instance.

And by rich I mean those who control the central banking system; billionaires who never
did an honest days work in their lives. Those born with a silver spoon in their mouths.

I do not mean rich in the sense that a skilled and gifted surgeon should earn more than
a shop owner. That's just common sense. I think few people would begrudge them of
earning 10s or even 100s of times more.

But what billionaire ever worked 20,000 times harder or longer for each of those billions
than the average worker?

I agree with that. Blame it on people who thinks you can enjoy wealth without putting in any effort such as Robert Kiworsaki (I may get his name or spelling wrong). They call it "passive income". Not only that, the financial institutions can make big money just by investing (with others' money). The list goes on. This is a big mess in the modern world. We should go back to bartering.
