Because communism only succeeds on theoretical grounds, but as an idea it has no practicality. It is in human nature to be competitive with one another, thus wanting to gain more and with that someone will have to be lesser in something. Furthermore, communism destroys the idea of hard work or achievement, an instinct we try to drill into children from a young age, because it will help them succeed. Communism succeeds only on paper, not on humans.
Communism sounds like a good political system in reality, but really is a corrupt form of government. That is why Capitalism is better.
Capitalism encourages success by rewarding accomplishments. Communism encourages mediocre work by giving each person, whether a hard-working, life-saving doctor, or a hippie who slacks off and wastes time, the same amount of money. How are you supposed to encourage people to work hard, when every one gets the same reward?
Communism has killed many people, much more than Capitalism ever will.
Capitalism leaves people alone to make money for themselves and to progress technology through innovation. Communism makes people like Bernie Sanders, who couch surf until 40 and hail the government as its savior.
Communism was never supposed to be put into place, it was supposed to be a natural transition.
Communism has killed more people than Black Plague. USSR -- 20 million died from communism China -- 65 million died from communism Vietnam -- 1 million died from communism North Korea -- 2 million died from communism Cambodia -- 2 million died from communism Eastern Europe -- 1 million died from communism Latin America -- 150,000 died from communism Africa -- 1.7 million died from communism Afghanistan -- 1.5 million died from communism Communist movements, parties not in power -- 10,000 died 75 million people died from the black plague. Which is more dangerous?
Why would ANYONE want anything OTHER than capitalism? Especially in a country that was founded on FREEDOM. Communists need to move abroad to N. Korea or China and get more communism.
It's just better.
This shouldn't even be a debate. Central planning doesn't work. Markets are much better at allocating resources for the needs of society through price signals. Read the economic calculation problem my Mises and Hayek. Governments cant properly respond to changes in demand of society. Also, private property is a right.
Communism has proven to be far more beneficial then Capitalism. It achieved more scientific breakthroughs then Capitalism in terms of the Space Race. It has also killed way, way less people then most would believe. Communism is point in fact better for humanity.
Communism has not killed very many people as it is not the fault of the ideology that a drought occurred. Capitalism has on other hand killed over 4. 2 billion.
