Debate Rounds (2)
YOk , for example I have found a country and named it mashammi and it has 18 states siba , roshan , vironi , smuglv , fursti , gabi , shitma , daigat. Mobas , tumar , adhu , zathra , gristaph , Sobash , badbi , shokushtrakaà , faswata , ghazwala , cootra , hishstrs. Then the capital is baitra . then one day a bomb blast happen so badly in all the place except baitra . So it can be a capital with any states . Thank you for reading this . If you think it worth of it then please give a vote to Darshita
An opponent may say that capitalism can exist in a stateless society because the capitalists could hire their own private police force to protect their property. However, I would rebut that by pointing out that numbers would not be on their side. Many people can still rise up, take guns, and kill all off said police force or even use their own police force against that one, until they take control the means of production for themselves.
The only reason the state prevents this from happening is because the state is so much more powerful than us. It has weapons at its disposal no private citizen can ever dream of having. Under a system without the state, that's all fair game and so all weapons would be available to everyone so people are on equal footing against the capitalists. The advantage, thus, goes to which side has numbers, and that would be the workers themselves, and not the capitalist with a private police force.
