    Communism vs Capitalism

    What are your pros and cons of each and which do you prefer?

    I personally cannot decide for myself, in a perfect world where people actually worked the same amount for the greater good a communism would be good but we are not in a perfect world.

    In capitalism people are able to have their greed at their fullest potential.

    Anarchy would not work because humans are just too plain stupid to rule themselves.

    A flawed argument on the grounds of ' In Capitalism, you must work for the money you earn, unless it is indeed inherited.'

    Here is why I say this, when you have your business and when you alot of money some people will use the money to further increase their money rather than helping others.

    So by this I am saying that capitalism can sometimes bring out the evil and greed in people.

    Cool
    Even if in a perfect world and everybody made the same amount of money. If the money was evenly distributed across the whole population, everybody on this site would be living in standards lower than they currently do.

    Oh look, more shit I don't care about!
    Fuck capitalism and communism. Both are flawed.
    I'd rather have communism in America though.

    Did you seriously just say you'd rather have Communism in America? Name a single communist society that EVER prospered.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    At least capitalism works somewhat. Communism destroyed the Soviet Union.

    I am not totally leaned against either side but American's have alot of money and stuff because the land is very rich, in capitalism it is a fact there there are more loosers than loosers, it is possible that if America was a communism that we would actually have better standards.

    Even in an ideal world, the chance for utter failure is always higher in a communist society. Though it may raise the standards for the very low classes, even the average middle-class worker's situation would decline. I equate it to a classroom. If we help out the F students and give them all C's, their grades will be better, but will they be? Giving freebies doesn't truly help the person, it only creates a dependence on the government. The same applies to A students. If we give them C's, will they be happy? They did more work, they studied harder, yet they receive exactly the same as those who did nothing. Not only does this cause disruption among the people, it has some other effects as well. Why would the A students work more, when they could do less and get the same? Communism causes a forward mental stagnation by being OK with the status quo.

    But that's not my form of an ideal world...
    Ideal worlds are perfect, which means everything functions flawlessly
