I guess everyone is fed up with this capitalism and socialism. isn't there an alternative to them. because i believe to an extent the root cause of all major world crisis may it be financial or economical or political are based on them.if they were absent the world would have been a better place. it's time we thought something alternative to them. The developing counties are forced to take sides with either USA(capitalist)or Russia(socialist). it is indeed time for a change. a world of onlygood

You postulate that the root cause of all major world crisis, may it be financial, economical, or political, are based on either Capitalism or Socialism. - This is false. Before Capitalism and Socialism, there was Feudalism. Feudalism is a completely different way of running society, and is neither Capitalism nor Socialism. There were plenty of major world crisis under Feudalism: financial, economic, and political crises included.

Furthermore, Russia is not a socialist country.

Your turn.

my dear friend the motion is isn't time the world order got restarted we are dealing with the future.there is no need to go to deeper meanings of socialism and capitalism.it is advisable to stick to the topic.
Waking up every day morning to read about corruption, terrorism,rapes,frauds,i'm sure every soul must have felt that the limit has come.When I meant restart i meant a 21st century reconnaissance .it time more and enough to change our present thinking style drastically.everbody is fed up

I'm sure you understand that the renaissance was basically the resurgence of Greek, Roman, and Arabic literature, art, mathematics, and most importantly ideas of social structure (ie. the resurgence of democratic and republic ideas of governance). So, what is your definition of a "world order" getting restarted, and what new ideas would be brought from a 21st century renaissance?

you made a moot point: corruption, terrorism, rape, and fraud have been apart of every society since the dawn of man

ides such as universal franchise do need to get carried on. so does systems like democracy.everything has a time span/lifespan.the socialist idea was something of the industrial revolution age(19th century).these idea are impractical today and attract very few people. therefore a kind of thinking needs to come up. something which has the pros of both socialist and capitalist ideologies.

I would like to accept this debate, but only on a few conditions: Russia won't be the example for socialism, because it isn't. Also, I would like to replace "socialism" with the "welfare state", and use a country like Finland or the Netherlands as an example.
Furthermore, the burden of proof needs to lie on Pro.

If you agree with that, I would love to enter this debate :D

They're both socialist, it's just that neither are communist right now.
