    No it's not. It's really not LOL
    Capitalism leads to social inequality and an unfair distribution of wealth and power.

    Socialism needs capitalism anyway, it isn't self-sustainable at the moment.
    You can rationalize all you want, but at the end of the day, we're getting beaten out.
    Socialism doesn't need capitalism. It tolerates capitalism. Like how a man tolerates herpes.
    And look at the countries which are socialist at the moment, geographically speaking if a country like America or China became capitalist it can be perfectly self sustaining.

    I'm going to guess you meant America/china being socialist.


    Problem is that socialism and the socialistic countries still depend (or did) depend on the capitalist countries to maintain their lifestyle.

    Also, you might want to note that the more successful socialist countries have a lower population count.

    Here's something for you, people aren't equal. If someone wants to sit on their ass and collect welfare, all the while contributing jack shit to society, then why should they be rewarded for it? Talk about an unfair distribution of power: It's this sort of thinking that breeds people to become dependent on the government. Big brother grows every time another entitled leech is born.
    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.

    Which must automatically indicate that solution is to be found in Capitalism vs. Socialism.

    People aren't equal. Everyone is better at certain things than others, they should be given equal opportunity to pursue these things. Why are you assuming people are going to be sitting on their asses. You know what's unfair? The top 20% of the population owning about 95% of income generated through capital gains.

    No. It indicates the assumption that capitalism breeds a better society is full of shit.

    I can agree on that.

    I can agree on that.
    U.S. is the poster boy of capitalism. You're assuming everyone having basic human rights will lead to people sitting on their asses. Makes no sense.

    ​Are you aware of the the amount of Unemployment, Welfare, and Food Stamp abuse that's going on right now?
