Let me rephrase my question. How would you stop people from going and just rebuilding capitalistic systems after the revolution without imposing your own state-like regulations and rules?

At some point, even if everybody has internalized "each according to his need," everyone is going to have something he really likes, and he'll be reluctant to give it up to the rest of the group, especially if it's hard to obtain. Over time, it will become habit for people to hide their belongings so that they can secure it for themselves, without fearing a community shortage.

At some point or another, someone is going to say "hey, I have this thing, but I want what you have, and I know you want what I have, so I would like to trade with you." and then the response will be "I'll trade with you, but I want more than just that in return."

Once property and trading emerges, it's not long after that trading for profit begins. By then, you have the textbook definition of a capitalistic market.

How could you stop this from happening without imposing rules on people keeping things they want for themselves, trading, or profiting from trades?

I mean, how will you get America to stop being America so it won't be a roadblock? Or do you want to start a revolution somewhere else instead? I hear there's some dictatorships in Africa ripe for revolution.

My second question still stands. How do you keep unity in the new system after it has formed without limiting people's rights?

How will you convince enough of the average American people that terrorism and brutal warfare in America is protecting their freedom and that they should participate?

There will always be naysayers. How will you stop your allies from disagreeing with you on some issue and splintering off to become your enemies without limiting their freedoms and rights?

Reddit enforced email in order to make it harder to create alt accounts. Probably it's to stop vote brigading, but maybe also to track users better.

Either way, it's really easy to sidestep. Just use a service like 10minutemail that makes a fake email and you're golden. Honestly this is not a major cause for concern for the freedom of the Internet.

That's because there's a lot more white men in America, not because they're more dangerous. If we assume there are 2 million Muslim foreigners in the country, and 1 in 10,000 is a terrorist, and there are 100 million white men in the country, and only 1 in 100,000 of them are terroristic, you're still going to see 5 times as many white terrorists as Muslim ones, despite the fact that Muslim foreigners are 10 times more likely to be a terrorist in this situation.

You would be better off getting this same data from countries like Germany, France, and Sweden, who have recently taken in a large amount of Muslim people.That way the bias from population percentage is removed. Look at those figures and I expect you will see a different story.

Studies have shown that couples who waited till marriage generally have more stable relationships than those who did not.

https://news.byu.edu/news/good-things-come-couples-who-wait

The study cited in this article implies that couples who wait generally are happier with their relationship for several reasons, not all directly related to the intercourse itself. Perhaps by having sex early, young people do not make emotional bonds that are important to the success of their relationship. In a healthy sex life, intercourse is interwoven with intense emotions. When a person seeks sexual intercourse in of itself and considers sex to be "cheap", they devalue the emotional side of sex, which makes it harder for them to choose and stay with a partner later on. They can't see why anyone would have sex besides physical pleasure, and so they also fail to see why anyone would want to live so closely with another person.
