Capitalism Is A Religion Of The Rich And Anybody Who Believes In It Is Nuts
Debate Rounds (3)
Capitalism has twisted people's thinking to irrational and absurd degrees. It is perfectly obvious that the people who benefit (or believe they benefit) from capitalism will not change it. That's all the people you get your news from and all the people you elect into office.
You don't think the US and/or England are dictatorships?
When was the last time you had a vote about capitalism?
Lmao. Really? Then please show me some evidence that capitalism and evolution are the same thing, because I believe what you just said to be the most ridiculous claim I have ever heard. Technological evolution predates capitalism by at least fifty thousand years, mate, and there is precisely zero evidence that capitalism positively increases technological achievement over any long-term period of time. Indeed, much of Africa is actually devolving, which kind of exposes your stupid myth as... Well, a stupid myth, really.
"Although the system crashed in 2008 it is the only system in the world that recognizes the individual's ability to thrive."
It forces poor individuals with no money, status or power to compete against rich individuals with millionaire fathers, political connections and power. The individual cannot thrive, but rather is crushed under the weight of the currently existing hierarchy. Paris Hilton can thrive, because she has enough money to enjoy life. I can't thrive, because despite having more talent and intellect in one of my own pubic hairs, I was not fortunate enough to be born with the last name of Hilton.
"Communism has all but collapsed. Why?"
Jesus. Does it have anything to do with the fifty year war the US fought to prevent it from working perhaps?
"Because the system is flawed by human nature"
Another ridiculous capitalist myth with no evidence to support it and no grounding in reality. As Hegel pointed out, there is no such thing as human nature. Humans are versatile creatures capable of adapting to pretty much whichever social environment you put them in, from slavery to kingship. Aside from the American leadership bombing the living daylights out of every country it was worried would turn communist, communism ultimately failed in Russia because the people had already adapted biologically to the skills necessary to survive within a dictatorial tsarist regime. This probably explains why they needed a hard right dictator such as Stalin to pretend he was a Communist simply in order to continue economic life. Try introducing capitalism into a tribe of die-hard commies and see how long it lasts, pal.
"As capitalism caused the crisis so it will help us to recover from it as time goes along."
Yeah. Nice logic mate. The problem is the solution. Good one.
Hanspete forfeited this round.
