Capitalism isn't even a good idea on paper.
Complaining about capitalism in a capitalist society on a phone made by capitalists on an app created by capitalists
Agree and disagree. Capitalism is necessary for socialism to spring up. We all saw what happened when a certain rather large country tried to go from feudalism straight to socialism.
You have capitalism to thank for the device you made that poll on.
Another stupid question AC: Capitalism is the single greatest economic practice for lifting the most people out of poverty ever tried.
The hilarious irony is that communes & collectives only work within a free-market economy to provide currency, property-rights, rule of law & military protection.
I worked for a capitalist company. I wanted to be paid as much as I could get and they wanted to pay the going rate. We helped each other...
It was good compared to feudalism
Communism, socialism, and capitalism are all good on paper.
No, they aren't
Pure anything is a bad idea.
...with exceptions of water, air, environment...
...environment, communism, healthy food...
I know what you mean
I'm just making myself laugh, I'm not trying to start a debate lol
The odds are....you are employed by a CAPITALIST.
Lol should I thank them for exploiting me?
Yes. Perhaps some chocolate. At least a nice card.
Funding a proletariat dictatorship takes capital. And you could likely use a raise.
I'd choose none of the above, thanks
You cannot escape your destiny. Come to the Capitalist Side. You do not know the power of the union scale & a fully functional matching 401k plus stock options.

Hey Anarcho, you should open a business. I believe that would teach you something and humble you.
By the way, one of the best feelings in the world is giving a job you created to someone that otherwise would be unemployed.
You should join a housing collective, get a job at a workers collective. We'll see if we can change each others' minds
I lived in a kibbutz for a while. I worked in the henhouse. And you are right, it changed me. I was young and stupid. Of course I believed in socialism. I learned that it is a stupid system.
Have you ever lived or worked in one?
Have you ever opened a business?
Chinto wins !! Way to go !!!
Thanks Ozzy. I remember telling my father that Communism is better than Capitalism. He just laughed and said "someday you will understand".
I hope that guys like AC keep their minds open.
