Clarifications on definitions :
Socialism - ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange of wealth controlled and managed by the workers (NOT the state. it has been done in the political discourse but themes of political discourse are not good references for philosophical, economic or any scientific debates ); libertarian socialism.
Capitalism - ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange of wealth controlled and managed by the private individuals; principle of laissez faire is followed here; economically a blunt term, but here it means crony capitalism just for the sake for a philosophical and economic debate between the two extreme ends)

Format : debate begins from round 2. For the 1st round, simply write that you accept to debate on this with me.

Yes, I saw your definition, but a google doc makes the words much clearer, this site always moves the words around in weird ways, google docs are much better formatting.

i'd say if there is something relevant, just copy paste it from google doc. and make it concise.

because his definition of socialism is different than mine. he is talking about the word socialism that was used by populist governments and tyrants to gain power and justify their authority by dropping socialism's merits in their writings , speeches and labeling their parties in such ways. that was a mockery of socialism. i use that word in a philosophical sense. i mean libertarian socialism that originated during the enlightenment era and which was very similar to anarchism.

Why not just debate with this guy instead of starting a debate?
