    They aren't the same.

    What's wrong with you?

    Why don't you move to China where Capitalism is THRIVING?

    Seriously...whats wrong with you?

    Shouldnt the fact that a communist nation has had to abandon communism for a more capitalist structure inform you about the weakness of the communist/socialist economic plan?

    Not sure what specifically you're referring to, but perhaps it's because Capitalism contains Democracy like elements? for example the market (i.e. the people participating on it) essentially vote with their money with respect to winners and losers in the marketplace.

    Are you serious?

    China is thriving?

    Don't you mean the Chinese government is thriving? I can assure you that the people are not.

    It is likely a waste of time, but I have a minute to kill here.

    The synergistic balance of liberty from oppressive government and the opportunity to take your potential to the very highest level it can achieve are a natural match. How could you not conflate the two?

    What would you replace our capitalistic system with?

    It is indeed awesome, mr Retard.

    Wanted to ask if you ever posted under this name on any other political forum, the stupidity is awfully similar to the one encountered before.
