TheChristian

Pro

Communism is superior because
1 everyone is equal
2 there is order and peace
3 Communism is Christian
4 communism everyone is safe and paid the same
5 no starvation
Ariesx

Con

Communism is inferior because
1. no innovation
2. too much power in government
3. No gateway to a better lifestyle
4. countries that have done communism are slowly becoming capitalist
Debate Round No. 1
TheChristian

Pro

Most communist countries have equality and rarely have a war civil or otherwise!
Ariesx

Con

Most capitalist countries have innovated there businesses. Capitalism is the leading cause for innovation. It created goals for the lower class to get to the upper classes. If America followed communism, than we wouldn't have had the internet.
Debate Round No. 2
TheChristian

Pro

Communism ensures that no one person gets influence over another and bigwigs and peasants(pardon the expression) are equal anarchy there is no order and in communism there is no corruption.
Ariesx

Con

Russia practiced communism. What happened? Power went to the government. They created special shops for themselves. While the others suffered, the politicians went to special shops and bought trades that other people could not buy. The people of Russia suffered through out there lives. Vote con, because con actually used history to back up his claim while pro just said what was in the Karl Marx book.

As much as I usually disagree with cheyenne, at least when it comes to his own religion he normally at least understands what it entails. Please, in the future, do some research before disembarking on a debate. Actual research. Not I heard this once somewhere idk lol. :L

Pro. You have the handle " Christian".Did you not read where Jesus said to take the one talent from the failure and give it to the one that doubled his talents?Instead in our communist culture we take from the producers and give to the freeloaders.And government gets to live high on the hog being the redistributors. Jesus said," if a man does not work, neither does he need to eat".Jesus gave to the poor. But he never confiscated by force ( tax ) to give to the poor. He gave out of donations into his ministry.Even when that thief, Judas , stole out of it, he still fed 5000 with just a box lunch.

You really need to read more of the way God does things before you say what you said.

Communism is an inherently flawed and defunct form of economy and society which is prone to failure. The natural want of humans is to better themselves and to be better than others. Material wealth, economic gain and ego are all critical aspects of human interaction which drive a need for material wealth and outdoing of our fellow beings. A communist society allows for none of these basic human functions and basically resorts to a blanket society which is imperfect and often creates social inequality as people strive for greatness and ways to exploit the system. Also I call B.S on the no corruption in communism corruption in the form of bribery was common, primarily due to the paucity of goods and services on the open market.

I seriously would like to hear how this guy believes that communism is Christian?The first thing every communist nation had to do was get rid of Christianity.

Reasons for voting decision: Aries made good points, whilst TheChristian evidently had no idea what he was debating about. Communism isn't Christian it's atheistic in every communist country that there has ever been. Corruption is rife and nothing he said of Communism was, in practice, true. Thus TheChristian has failed to uphold his Burden of Proof, whilst Con made fair (at least realistic) arguments.

Reasons for voting decision: As a socialist, it pains me to vote like this but Pro has barely any idea what he is talking about. Communism promotes atheism not christianity, at least in its purest form but that is not a bad thing in my opinion (but its just my opinion and that does not matter). I don't want to sound condescending but it makes me sad that this debate will turn people away from leftist policies due to Pro's lack of debating skills.' On a side note: Communism is not mutually exclusive with democracy or anarchy. (democratic-communism and anarcho-communism look them up).
