Capitalism is a better economic system then communism.
Debate Rounds (3)
In a capitalistic country, everyone and anyone can have a chance to make their way to the top. If fact, many of America's top companies were founded by poor immigrants. If you work hard then you will be rewarded for it. But in a communist nation this is not the case. Everyone has the same things as everyone else. You cannot create your own wealth or be rewarded for hard work. Almost every aspect of your life has government influence. If communism is so great then why are people in communist nations so unhappy. Take the berlin wall for example. Why was it there? If communism is so great then people from the west side would be going to the east side. But, that's not how it was. Millions of people were trying to cross into west Germany because the quality of life was so much better due to capitalism. If that's not evidence then I don't know what is.
Communism- a system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party.
These are two of the definitions of what communism is about. Now we all know communism was an idea made by Karl Marx, but the Chinese have had this type of system for thousands of years. It just never was really useful when the Chinese Invented, but it never became really useful until Karl Marx fixed and made it better.
Now this idea doesn't always work, but it still works for some nations. Such as China, North Korea, and Vietnam. Those nations still use communism, but they don't call it communism in front of other nations just so they don't make other people mad.
Sometimes it is better to have everyone get paid the same amount and get the same amount.
Now capitalism on the other hand is a different story. Lets use the same scenario as before. Instead of being told what to do and how much you'll be paid, you go to college whether public or private, get a degree in law. You grow up to be a very successful and happy lawyer. All with little government intrusion. This is how the world should run, with the freedom to make your own choices about your life.

Reasons for voting decision: Con failed from a pragmatic standpoint. Not only does he essentially concede in R1 ("I know it fails at one point, but for Russia it held for a long time."), but his "best" examples were China and North Korea. They just weren't compelling. His more philosophical points were good enough, but when even Con must admit that it's generally unworkable, then the winning system seems to be clear. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
