  • capitalism baby!!
  • Socialism is bad news.  Read Animal Farm.  Classic literature.  You can never stop learning from it.

  • Capitalism has produced so much wealth. Socialism has produced, well, mass starvation and poverty  thats all I can think of.

  • I believe in both systems.

    Capitiliam allows the people who work for their money become wealthy.

    Socialism allows all people to have a "middle class" amount of wealth.

  • @northsouthkorea There really is no middle class in socialism.  The government promises to pay everything for everyone and takes care of them.  Now where does this money come from?  Middle class people who work their butts off to pay the bills when those bills are just going to the low class that does nothing and expects free healthcare and food stamps.  It's bad enough now, but socialism would just make it worse.

    Animal Farm highlights this where the animals are all working to death, literally in some cases :'(, and the pigs end up living in the house and have everything they need.  In the end it even mentions how the pigs and humans are almost impossible to tell apart anymore.  Perfect example.

  • Capitalism is a superior system that introduces incentive for people to do better.  Socialism removes the unique thing we (humans) have - drive to be the best you can do and take risks

    WhyTrump - a good question
  • Capitalism, endorses better guidelines and is a great baseline for any nation.

    While this video is about progressive Tax systems, it aptly describes socialism to a degree.  Your thoughts?



    "If there's no such thing as a stupid question then what kind of questions do stupid people ask"?

    "There's going to be a special place in Hell for people who spread lies through the veil of logical fallacies disguised as rational argument".

    "Oh, you don't like my sarcasm?  Well I don't much appreciate your stupid".


  • It is really a question of freedom from (capitalism) or slavery to (socialism) the state.  I choose freedom.
    DrCerealm_abusteitSilverishGoldNova
  • I don't completely align with either, but if I had to choose one it would definitely be capitalism. 
    SilverishGoldNova
  • I would chose somewhere a little in between but more closely to capitalism so I choose capitalism.

    You are aware Animal Farm was written by a socialist critiquing the USSR, right?

    Bis das, si cito das.
  • @DrCereal
    Lol ikr. Animal Farm was for critiquing not only the USSR, but also other extremely authoritarian governments. It had nothing to do with socialism.
