Socialism vs. Capitalism?

Who would argue for capitalism? The "libertarians" would define away all of the exploitations of the current system as being "not true capitalism".

I just finished it! It was really good. I'm not sure that looking Evey up and torturing her was very principle though, even though V was only do it to get Evey to see the prison that she was born into.

This where you lost all credibility. :p

Inb4 convoluted comic discussion about "Well, which Hulk are you talking about? Because *names some obscure version of Hulk* totally beat Thor dude!"

Also, reasoning should debate socialism.

Because the current system is Keynesian, what of it?

Here's a topic: Should Reasoning come up with his own damn topic or should he beg on the forums for one? Or should he force someone to give him one? Or should he be forced by someone to take one?
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

This is like saying Atheism is the best religion... misses the whole point.
