Capitalism isn't working at all, its an illusion.
In Capitalism, you become rich by taking advantage of others... our minds are completely controlled and forced to be within a tiny sphere of perception. That's conditioning and propaganda, not human nature. We have something over animals, that is freedom of the mind. 97% of people do not use it at all, they don't even know there not using it due to the perception they are restricted too. Mindlessness has been conditioned and most people don't even know.

Thats socialism not communism.
My thread is debating communism - under communism - there are no taxes, the wealth you generate in your factory is distributed to the workers in that factory - think of a co-op that runs on a multinational level. At the moment the shareholders get all that wealth that you generate - my question to you is - why should that be the case - why can't you get that share which is what communism says.
You still have to work to receive that distribution of wealth from your factory or your company - only those who cannot work for legitimate reasons such as disability or retired workers would be maintained by the rest of us - but the difference is - is that they would be maintained at the same level as the rest of us and not forced to live in sub standard conditions through no fault of their own making

Exactly, then everyone gets lazy and nobody works, everyone gets a car even if they don't work, then the Islamists take over and its not very good. I also don't want to wear a helmut of any kind, research shows that if you wear a helmut you get even lazier and your brain gets stupider by the resultings. NO thank you socialistisms! I prefer my job at walmart and my other job at mcdonalds thank you much!
