What is better, Communism or Capitalism
Debate Rounds (3)
All "countries" are, "claimed land on a ball in space, with people and that which sustains people"
land, water, air, people, peace, maintenance
Governing & maintaining a population, so that is does not destroy the rest of the items on the
list, in an economically-effective & sustainable way, is the goal.
Applying communism comes from a decent impulse inside some of the people
but it has not been shown to be effective.
Capitalism has many appealing features & can be much more motivating
for a significant portion of the population & allows for more job-tailoring.
Being that neither is ideal,
does it seem wise to list pro & con for each & weigh the list?
So I'll start off stating my opinion about Communism and Capitalism.
Lets start of with economics.
There is no high class in society, only middle, meaning less poverty, less unemployment. The ideal communist worker will work and act to support the betterment of his community, and put personal interests 2nd. Government tries to get rid of private property and distribute its goods equally.
The government owns the companies, so if production needs to be shifted into a different area, the government is capable of doing it quick.
These type of economies are also very stable. Meaning no sudden depression.
I await your argument, by telling me your opinion.
What is relevant is what really happens.
"There is no high class in society, only middle, meaning less poverty, less unemployment. The ideal communist worker will work and act to support the betterment of his community, and put personal interests 2nd. Government tries to get rid of private property and distribute its goods equally."
How would you ever enforce this?
How would you get rich people to give and live?
"These type of economies are also very stable. Meaning no sudden depression."
Why have they failed?
I am in favor of sharing but I see NO healthy, stable communistic states
and I do see that communism stifles creativity
So dawnx4, wouldn't you agree?
From your brain, not the Internet,
say exactly what is "socialism", "communism" and "capitalism"
