You need to dig a little deeper.

Although you are correct in saying that "socialism starts out benevolently but it leads to communism", the truth is that most modes of civilization were initially developed to be benevolent for their societies, but ALL have thus far been doomed to failure. Unfortunately, the reason is because humankind has not yet learned to live according to the Golden Rule; to do unto others as we would have done unto ourselves. Unless we can begin to adhere to that simple philosophy, there is NO "ism" in the world that can save us from ourselves - including libertarianism. Any and all modes of civilization will ultimately fail without it. And yes, Positive Energy IS the foundation for the Golden Rule.
