  • Equal opportunity > Economic equality

    Socialist governments are only good in theory. Yea sure you might like the idea of being equal to everyone in your country, or the government producing everything you need but its like living in a prison. Theres no freedom to go out and start a business, buy different products, or anything the could remotely separate you from your neighbor.
    I love the economic opportunities capitalism provides me with, hell if I wanted to i can go out and start a rival company for anything i damn please and capitalism allows me to do that.

  • Yes! Why not?

    Although capitalism involves creation of some sort of inequality (often hinted by the socialists) it always provides a potential for a healthy competition, and a free market, unlike socialism which restricts any private ownership, forget any competition amongst the industrials who mostly contribute to healthy competition and development of the nation. It has been constantly proved throughout the course of the history that though socialism has been attractive to many because of the many subsidies and freebies provided, capitalism has thrived better throughout.

  • Capitalism is selfless, while Socialism is Selfish

    Basically, many socialists support many rights that they are entitled to, not feeling any gratitude for it. For example, Obama had stated at one point that citizens are now able to live off their parents' health-care and there was a loud applause. If there was a cure for cancer, there would be not much of a loud cheer. Basically, socialism have a mindset of selfishness, asking if they're entitled to such things like retiring a young age or calling in sick and still getting paid. Socialists refusw to grow up independent as humans. Capitalists, meanwhile, have a sense of independance and selflessness. They have a win-win situation for the consumers.

    You know how parents teach kids to say thank you when you get a gift or ice cream? In socialism, they would reply with "What am I entitled to" as a response, showing the immaturity and irresponsibility of Socialism, not to mention the fact that they basically put human naturebin slavery by picking out what they think is the best thing for and forcing you to like it. In simple words, Look at Havana, Cuba and Hong Kong. This explains that socialism is in no way, shape, form, and style, better than Capitalism. You can say that distributing wealth and miseries is "benefitial", but in reality, it's not. I'd rather be the 1% rather than being the poor majority.

  • Is this really a debate?

    To correct some idiocy out there, socialism does not fail because some "pure" notion of it was not adhered to. It fails because it doesn't work. "Pure" anything does not exist, nor should it. You can only look at a given law and consider wether it increases freedom and is advantageous, or decreases freedom and is disadvantageous. In almost every case the free market wins the former, while socialism conforms to the latter.

  • People work harder for success

    Capitalism allows people to strive towards higher goals, whereas socialism allows people to be lazy. Capitalism causes people to go out and work hard for a living, whereas people who believe in socialism feel as though the world owes them something, and are willing to accept benefits for doing nothing. Socialists want people to 'be more equal' economically, but why should somebody who works hours a day in a high skilled job have the same amount of money and good as somebody who cannot be bothered to work?

  • "A Rising Tide Lifts all Boats"

    If socialist countries can offer to help the poor rise into poverty, then why is it that countries with centrally planned economies and subsidized health care have weak, low growth economies and higher rates of poverty than the US? It's because not only does socialism go against human nature and human history, it leads to rationing and long waits for worse goods and services. Half of American citizens are in the global 1% wealth-wise. This is because America's free market allocates goods and services the best, and it is only hindered by regulations, taxes, and the Fed that hurt competition, raise inflation, and contribute to the slow-growth economy. A lot of people criticize the rise of monopolies in the late 19th century as a good example of how capitalism fails, but the men like Andrew Carnegie and John Rockefeller were actually able to rise up from near-poverty and become billionaires, while today a large Federal welfare state and red-tape regulations hinder economic growth. The onyl good regulations are anti-trust and slight regulations on Wall Street. Other regualtions and taxes have only hurt businesses and individuals making it harder to rise up in America. This is seen throughout history and today that free market economies lift up everyone, including the poorest of the poor. That's why China's economy is growing and its people are being introduced to products that America's POOR take for granted such as microwaves and sofas. Socialism doesn't promise to lift everyone up, it promises a subsistence economy and a stagnant life path, which not only is contrary to the human spirit, but also leads to lesser quality goods and services, including healthcare, medicine, and even education.

  • Socialism is doomed to become Communism

    Socialism's main goal is to achieve a utopia. But everyone's perception of utopia is different, so who decides what utopia should be created? Why, the state of course! Looking at the USSR shortly after the Russian Revolution, who had free reign to decide what "utopia" the brand new government would shape into? Not the people, but Joseph Stalin. If your perception of utopia is different than the state's, then you are a liability. Just ask Leon Trotsky. Thus, Socialism inevitably deteriorates into Communism. It's a good thought, but completely unrealistic. Capitalism, on the other hand, is more realistic because it appeals to human nature. Capitalism doesn't seek equality among everyone, it seeks fairness. Thus, the individual has a freedom not found anywhere else.

  • Better? Absolutely not!

    Capitalism is not what many people think it is, neither is socialism. People think capitalism is good and perfect... Then why are there so many poor people starving on the streets? Why can't you pay your student loans? Why can't you pay for your health care? Why is the national debt increasing? Why 1% of american people control 40% of the wealth? All of these things are fixed with socialism. You get free health care, free education, free public transport, and sometimes free food. While in capitalism, the government doesn't care about your health care or that you are starving in the streets. And I'm talking about SOCIALIST countries, not COMMUNIST. Americans seem to mix them a lot ...
    Say what you want about socialism, but when your economy fails, and your debt destroys you, next time you will see socialism the other way.

  • Capitalism is doomed to fail.

    Capitalism is what it says. It means to take advantage of every source of money, strip and sell for profit to the extent that all resources will be exhausted as soon as possible to maximize profit without s to what impact this will have on others. In the U.S. you can see what has occurred at the hands of capitalists. Jobs gone, businesses bought by larger corporations and then moved overseas. Capitalist have raped this country and the people, they have no loyalty or attachment to the country that made them what they are today. Secondly, Big business has no place controlling our government or politics, this will only corrupt and weaken our government as proven in the past. If you give the wealthy the freedom to do what they want they will capitalize on that and destroy for profit all that we know and love. Capitalist will establish a federalist state, states will have very little power the federal government will have only the power given by the big money. They will reduce this country to nothing more than a third world country. If you don't believe this check out the stock market crash of 1929 and every stock market crash before that was the capitalist in charge and doing what ever they wanted including murder and killing of their own employees/workers who finally protested the working conditions and abuses, the workers were shot for this. To be a purist for Socialism or Capitalism is impossible, however a blend of both is quite possible. Capitalism here in the U.S. is only good for those already in position to gain great wealth at our expense, you only get something if you pay for it and that means everything including health care, education, legal assistance perhaps an ambulance. So, if your not wealthy now your not ever going gain much wealth and if you are poor, you will become more poor. Not every person can start their own business and succeed. I believe that to continue down this path will see the end of our Constitution and the end of the U.S. as we know it. By the way the U.S. has functioned well when both systems can work together. We live in the best country to live in, the United States. You should all thank your lucky stars that you live here because there is no other place on this planet where people can live as well as we do now(no thanks to capitalism)we have so many freedoms thanks to a strong central government, but that all seems to be a thing of the past so as our government and protections under the Constitution and the law are weakened if not totally gone thanks to unregulated capitalism. Capitalists want to eiminate the Constitution and the Government. This is occurring in the U.S. In the end Capitalism will make the rich extremely rich and the rest of us will work for our new slave owners.

  • Isn't It obvious

    The distinction is extremely important, for it frees supporters of capitalism from having to defend it as a caring or compassionate institution, which it is not. It is coldly mechanical. The problem is ‘free-market’ advocates think capitalism is a political system and through rationalizations and justifications for the single-variable profit pursuit deny one of Jude’s best insights, “What must any system accomplish? At the core, it must provide a method by which its smallest constituent unit, a household, can save the surplus of its day’s work for the day when it cannot work.” When millions of Americans could not work the Right had nothing to offer that would speak to this reality- in economic contraction, the daily output of Americans is not sufficient to provide for illness, accident or natural disaster. There must be a system of either risk-pooling and income distribution, the question though is whether it is paid for by taxation or bond finance. President Obama realized this but his solution is proving to look like something other than he promised and potentially at a greater cost to freedom than the electorate bargained for.

  • No I do not agree

    I have nothing against Capitalism but I have a firm belief that Capitalism controls the world. In post civil rights America, Capitalism has really put a thorn in Black America. Racism and hatred don't come from people like you and me but rich politicians and businessmen/women. That why southern whites resented the free slaves because their freedom hurt their capitalism which at the time complety developed the south.

  • A healthy mix of the two has proven to be a good philosophy

    We've seen in the last 100 years what happens in pure socialist, and pure capitalist societies. That is, if their is such a thing a being purely one or the other. There's also some crossover in practices between the two. We have a system now that is a mix of the two. It's not perfect, but as long as we don't get too far to either end of the spectrum, it should be fine.

  • Capitalism dominates all

    It is true that capitalism has the wealth to take on anything, but they fail to see how our society has become.With capitalism behind the wheal a lot of people will suffer ,people would be jobless. Socialism is the only way to prevent that from happening .Socialism protects all !!!

  • Capitalism is nonsense

    Capitalism completely and utterly relies on the concept of squeezing money out of every source possible, at the expense of core public services that we all need, yet it is apparently logical to cut taxes on the richest 1% of the population! In order for deficits to be cut, debts to be reduced and economies to be expanded, the starting point is that the people have the core public services they need! Stop cutting taxes on the rich, stop slashing government funding for essential public services and start running a logical, socialist government!
