4.6. Socialist utopia is falsified

4.6.1. History told us that socialism failed severely and many times as an economical, political and scientific system. The victims of the concept count hundred of millions. Lenin, Stalin, Mao etc. are falsified. The architecture was so wrong that the Sovjet Block collapsed by own weakness.

6.1. Of course TE is no Big Brother scenario, with everyone knowing everything

6.2. Even today there are a lot of reporting compliances - by law or self-regulated.
