Cooperative selfishness > government oversight
Pure Capitalism is best. But I stipulate capitalism in a way that you earned it, not ripped it off. Capitalism to me is a business that has a product or service that people voluntarily purchase, not are forced to purchase. People control their destiny that way. Solutions are a mixed bag, not pure ideas. So other ideas have to be considered. Communism works well with insurance models, capitalism would never work for example.
When it comes to the extremities of economic thought, I'd rather my ideology be in line with human nature rather than a reliance on the good will of man.
Not everyone is created equal, and people should be rewarded for their hard work. Oh and not to mention every country that has tried communism has ended in a totalitarian regime that murders it's own citizens.
The people who actually work hard will be successful. What a novel idea. I don't need the government telling me what to do and taking away my hard earned money and possessions.
Communism has killed around 100,000,000 people. Naziism only killed 60,000,000 people.
I don't believe in a completely free market, but anything is better than communism.
Lol. All the brain dead Commies in the comments. If you hate Capitalism then leave our country. Dumbass Commutards. Lmao.
While I believe there should be some (but minimal) government oversight (therefore not PURE Capitalism), it has been proven time and time again that capitalism outproduces communism on a national scale. Communism advocates equality of outcome. This results in the government taking all the production from every "worker" and then distributing an equal amount to everyone whether they worked or not. Human nature is to strive for greater personal success. If you remove the incentive (by taking 100% of a persons productivity), you remove their desire to strive. This always results in a dramatic reduction in the productivity of each individual which results in a reduction of the total pot to be distributed by the state. Capitalism advocates equality of opportunity. This results in everyone being protected equally under the law, and having the same ability to strive for personal success (whatever that means to the individual). It also means personal responsibility for personal actions. If you work hard and smart, you will have a chance to succeed. If you do not work hard, you will starve. If you do not work smart, you will end up in the "lower class". This equality of opportunity, (but inequality of outcome) is far superior to communism's equality of outcome!
Still better than Crapitalism.
Communism tells us about the equality. Just for an example of we organize a party, communism tells us that for that party everyone would get same food, cloth and other living necessities. Not only that if there is a hand of rice to eat among 10 men. Everyone would get same quantities. Through it equality will be established. In India when communist movement started their policy was to tit for tat. So that if any capitalist or industrialists tried to stop its extension for their selfishness he had to be murdered. They wanted to establish a dream. For the farmers for the working class that did a lot. But the worshiper of democracy who want to think about himself only, they could not tolerate them. And they were murdered by the pistol of small selfishness of capitalists in the mask of democracy. Democracy is nothing but an expression of capitalism in other way. If communism wins what will be happened? Cuba is it's example. They are greater than the worshiper of democracy USE. There are no beggars. Everybody hace their fundamental needs. Literacy rate is 98.8%. They are ahead among all countries in human resources. So communism is better than democracy or capitalism.
It's about equality, from the poor man to the rich. Marxism, a type of communist belief, had this trait. It didn't believe that a more rich class of people should vote, but rather have the workers, who do much of the work, vote along with everyone else. It's simple as that, so don't just take my word for it, take the others who took more of their time explaining it, because they understand more than I can say.
Communism has never been done correctly, it is a "on paper" ideology, it has only been around for about 150-200 years, and capitalism has had basically since the beginning of currency and trade to evolve and work out the kinks. The only problems are: 1. People are too close to their material objects to let go and make communism work. 2. Corporations and the Government have made these material objects necessary to your survival. And 3. Communism would require a violent uprising to enforce communism, like every other time communism took over. Communism needs all of us to get it to work.
Communism is not against human nature since human nature is based on the situation. Capitalism is being replaced by socialism and then communism. You can see this today. More and more countries are becoming socialist and are very successful because of it
I'd prefer a system where cooperation, mutual aid, and social betterment is emphasized over domination, cynicism, and egotist ideals. Communism is the truest freedom since the people who work in the mills and factories also manage it. To call a society where you have to rent yourself for a wage in order to survive "freedom" is just nonsensical and downright Orwellian.
