    They have an audio.

    It seems like Israel's Kibbutzim are experiancing some of the same problems others have had who have tried to have a society based on collective ownership.

    I think one of the problems with these modern collective societies is that they may have misunderstood the indigenous communal societies that they were basing their collectivism on. Many indigenous societies practiced collectivism but it was done voluntarily and when they saw the need for it. Their collectivism wasn't dictated by a government. Plus many indigenous societies also had private ownership.

    You are right but in the socialistic republic also had private ownership or at last in Yugoslavia and had a free market also.

    Modern State capitalism is a form of organized collectivisation from above, one could argue. As for the so called Neo Liberals or freemarketeers as they call themselves they reveal there true colors when they gain control of the institutions of state, including getting into bed with social conservatives, & nationalists, engaging in cultural wars with what is left of the so called left, and last but not least using the state to redistribute resources in favoure of the income & asset rich, always a high priority.
