Travel to rural Russia. Travel to North Korea. Travel to Zimbabwe. Then come back to America with your warm water and Internet and ask the question again.



Most of us hypthetically clock in and out on minimum wage or just above, struggle to survive Oh well never mind the greedy cats of Capatilism are laughing all the way to the bank.


Why do you feel the need to blame succesful people for your misfortunes?





Could an office survive without a cleaner??


Ive taught a cleaner to negotiate a good deal for herself, quit feeling like an "oppressed victim" and work with self-respect and dignity. Thats what Capitalism is all about.

Socialism is all about feeling pathetic and weak and blaming "the system".

I wouldn't exactly say Capitalism invited computers. Yet they do market computers.
The reason is this wiki entry.

Can you explain the latter for me? I rarely hear anyone use the word Neo. let alone Neo Buddhism.
By The Way. Neo is not a word. Firefox refuses to list it as a correct word.


Its my own term I made up for myself. Its to indicate that my spiritual beliefs tend towards Buddhism.

I have corrected my entry. The original concept was indeed to help the government blow people up. It was capitalists who brought the technology to the people.

After the entire country was starving and desperate after half a century of socialism, the stubborn Chinese FINALLY embraced some Capitalism out of pure necessity for survival.

Skyfloating, you really have surprised me with your bias and ignorance, although I understand it's not unfounded being as socialism is so misunderstood in america.

surely you would'nt disagree that wealth is distributed unfairly today?

imo any progressive should be about empowering people monetarly and financially, the abolishment of hierachy in terms of government and business has to be a priority if you agree that wealth is distributed unevenly.

people are equal(we just need to work hard on families and education) and although some people arguable have more in terms of economic revenue you cant disregard the fact that most don't even have a chance to contribute.

Do you habitually greet other people with ad-hominem attacks?

Define "fair"?



the abolishment of hierachy


Do people who have achieved more than you or are one step "higher", make you feel uncomfortable?



wealth is distributed unevenly.


In all socialist nations this has led to a breakdown of the system. Why? Because it degrades those who create wealth and value for all others. YOU did not create this wonderful Internet you are typing on. Somebody did it for you, and you are benefiting from it.

He did nothing but preach for mankind to give and help their fellow man and to share with them as if they were their own kin.

This is called charity, not socialism.
How can you compare Jesus to Stalin? or Chavez? or Castro? or Mao?

Ok, look, I came from a poor family. I found a way to get to college, I graduated with honors, and now I have a good career, all by working hard.
I make a middle class wage and last year the government took $12,000 dollars from me, yes $12,000 off my broken back (literally). I could have done a lot for my family with that money. Nope, it all went to the government. That's stealing! Plain and simple. I will always agree that the true disabled, veterans, and the elderly need help, but the rest of the people can do it for themselves just like I did.

During any of this time in your life did you: Drive on a road? Go to a public school? Enjoy the safety and security of Fire and Police service? Receive any Grant Money or Unemployment?

Don't get me wrong, I understand the point you are trying to make, but I get a little perturbed at the hypocrisy of those who complain about the taste of the milk while their mouth is firmly grasping the teet.
