Socialism vs Capitalism

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by Snoopy, Dec 16, 2018.

  1. As a college student I often am told that “Capitalism is evil” or that “socialism is the work of the devil.” I thought, what a better place to bring the discussion besides KaW.

    I’m going to give you a definition of both. I want to see the opinions of you great/not so great people. Imitation Cheese has been gone for like 3 years so we never have RL Political discussions and I know we are all adults now so I figured some of you redneck conservatives and/or hippy liberals would love to argue with other internet people about this.

    Capitalism: an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.

    Socialism: a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

    Go my friends. Have fun!
  2. Monarchies are better
  3. Capitalism is the only thing that consistently works.
    Socialism doesn't work
  4. There has never been a pure execution of Capitalism... finding the right balance between a capitalistic based distribution of wealth while supporting some socialistic systems to support the common benefit.
  5. :lol:
  6. Well as a college student, ur really stupid for thinking KaW would be a good place to ask
  7. So would that be democrat run capitalism?
  8. No. Saying something is democratic, is just saying it was voted for by the people.
  9. Doesn’t matter.

    We have pushed the earth to literally over heat itself and will not take the radical measures needed to reverse what we created.

    We won’t be able to live on the earth in about ~100-200 years and at the point the only government that will matter will be the hyper rich ~.01 that made it off this god forsaken planet and miraculously carry on the human story.

    Send post.

  10. The only reason capitalism didnt fall long ago is because of slave labour in other countries providing cheap products

  11. Conservative: you are given 1/2 cup a day after milking the cows for 8 hours, never earning enough to get your own cow while the farmer throws away the excess he has and can't sell .

    Get it right
  12. Capitalism is always manipulated into fascism!
  13. I’ll re-ask it
    So would that be capitalism run by the Democrat party ?
    Because that’s how they keep screwing it up.
  14. :lol: Accurate.

    :lol: Also accurate.

  15. I forgot some internet people forget that /sarcasm exists.
  16. Some of you seem to think Capitalism is a specifically conservative idea which is the only reason you dislike it. Can you give stats as to why Capitalism is so bad?

    The same to Socialism. Why is it so bad? Is there a way to balance the two and would that be beneficial or successful?
  17. Post World War One Germany: Interwar period -> Socialism
  18. So what you are saying is that a republic is better than socialism
  19. I think we should force poor people to fight over what little they have
