I believe in the true principles behind communism but as I believe in decentralisation, I'm technically a localist.

Give me a hybrid of the social market economy and eco-capitalism any day!

Liberal capitalism's main problem is the tendency of wealth to accumulate at the top, its focus on a quick profit which leads to poor allocation of resources, and, short of a few ethical entrepreneurs, it tends to have little regard for social welfare and protection of the environment.

True communism is unlikely to succeed in the short or long term as it fails to harness the power of human greed (that which powers capitalism so well).

Much as I admire your belief in decentralisation, David, I worry that it might suffer from the same problems as too much centralisation - it risks becoming a tyranny. I'm a centrist (not centralist) through and through - a balance of powers between the centre (national government) and periphery (local government). Means we would, hopefully, not get into the same situation of introducing awful laws like section 28, then, once it finally gets repealed, having a Conservative local council (Kent) trying to reintroduce its own.

Central government should be constrained by local government, and local government should be constrained by central government.

Granted, my system risks falling into chaos if politicians are unable to reach a consensus (and it certainly would if introduced in the UK given our adversarial House of Commons, and judging by our pathetic attempts at coalition government), but forcing politicians to come to decisions that represent a consensus should guard against tyranny of the majority and tyranny of the minority.
