Capitalism Encourages Freedom

TheGentlemanlyMarxist
CASmnl42

This argument is over the relation of Capitalism and freedom, with myself believing that capitalism hinders freedom. This first round is to be for accepting the debate, and to clarify certain points: 1. This debate is not necessarily an argument for or against capitalism, merely its role in human freedom (for instance, you could believe that capitalism can result in war and dictatorship, but support it due to your belief in its inevitability or opposition to other economic models, hence being o...

coolkid1231
Kylar

No, the world is not changing for the better. Threat of nuclear destruction, disease, political and religious conflicts, rising terrorist organizations, faltering birthrates in 1st world countries, failing economies, failing American educational system, voter apathy, running out of resources, "climate change", etc . As much as we'd might like to believe the world is changing for the better; the harsh reality is that the world is becoming overpopulated, fossil fuels are running low and un...

Capitalism vs. Socialism

TheGentlemanlyMarxist
Rwoot14

For this argument I will be taking the "con" position, which is to be the "socialism" position for the purpose of this debate. This first round is for acceptance, and to clarify the following: Capitalism: Economic system characterized by wage-labor and individual or state ownership of the means of production. Wage labor is to be defined not simply as labor done for an incentive, but rather labor paid for based on capital an employer feels to pay an employee rather than the social value of a pro...

Gatto_Gateaau

If you think about it when you make buildings with these types of legos you dont need to demolish buildings, even if you do demolish the building you are able to use the same pieces again to make a new house. This virtually illiminates the problem...
