No we cannot. They our opposing ideologies. To have capitalism is to not have communism, to have communism is to not have capitalism. I don't
currently have the energy to go much further than that.
One thing I would like to say though,
I agree that communism and caring for the poor, stupid, lazy and unfortunate is the right thing to do.
Of course caring for the poor, etc.. is the right thing to do. What I find most people (not necessarily you) do not understand about capitalism,
true capitalism that is. Capitalism is the best chance that the poor, unfortunate, etc.. have.
I don't understand why people think that if a government doesn't help, nobody will. I think it is the exact opposite, nobody helps because it is
assumed that the government will.
The government is just a tool that people have created. If the government got out of the "helping people" game, I assure you and everybody else in
the world, the people will find another tool to help the unfortunate. Help does not have to come from the government. In fact, governments the
world over have proven time and time again that they are quite bad at the job. Just look at any government program and the extreme amount of waste
The best thing that could happen for the poor is to get the government out of the charity business. I mean really, when did people decide that it
was government handouts or starving people with no hope.
The reason these laws that take and give exist in the first place is because people care about other people. The government is just the current tool
used. Take the tool away and another tool will be built. I would guess a much more fair, efficient and useful tool.
