Where did capitalism kill 5 million from lack of drinking water?
"The World Health Organization estimates that 3.575 million people die from lack of clean water, and that 1.5 million people die from vaccinable diseases every year. Mercy Corps estimates that nine million people die from hunger every year. By summing these deaths, it can be concluded that capitalism kills approximately 14 million people per year"

Stop kissing Stalin’s ass. Because of Stalin’s gross incompetence millions of Soviet citizens died: Joseph Stalin's Paranoid Purge - Warfare History Network
Stalin's many defects doesn't change the historical reality:

Which Country Was Instrumental in Winning World War II?

"An estimated 25 million to 31 million Russians were killed in the conflict — 16 million of them civilians, and more than 8 million from the Red Army. Russians also point to the fact that Soviet forces killed more German soldiers than their Western counterparts, accounting for 76 percent of Germany’s military dead."

Government's embrace of neoliberalism in the 1980s laid the groundwork for finance capitalism's looting of the US economy which is not to excuse the central role of FOR-PROFIT mortgage fraud, predatory lending, and foreclosure fraud in perpetrating that crime.

Neoliberalism – the ideology at the root of all our problems

"Attempts to limit competition are treated as inimical to liberty.

"Tax and regulation should be minimised, public services should be privatised.

"The organisation of labour and collective bargaining by trade unions are portrayed as market distortions that impede the formation of a natural hierarchy of winners and losers.

"Inequality is recast as virtuous: a reward for utility and a generator of wealth, which trickles down to enrich everyone.

"Efforts to create a more equal society are both counterproductive and morally corrosive.

"The market ensures that everyone gets what they deserve."
Government cause the mortgage crisis by forcing banks to give loans to people that didn't have good credit.

Of course, you always blame capitalism for every problem in the world. Government is the cause of virtually every social and economic problem in the world that is humanly solvable.

There's little doubt US aid to the Soviets was crucial to defeating the Nazis, but there's no doubt which country paid the biggest price in that war; for example, if Hitler's Operation Barbarrosa had targeted the US

Why does the USSR deserve any praise for being the victim? In fact, it was one of the perps in the war. Stalin helped Hitler carve up Poland. It brought the wolf to its door.

"unequally distributed property"
Now there is a mouthful.
The meaning behind those three words is simple - Marxism, socialism... communism... take your pick.
Of course in those three, property is CERTAINLY not equally distributed either.

Capitalism... property is distributed by participation, and dependent on who does and who does not accept the risks of opportunity.
Marxism/Socialism.... property is distributed, filtered more accurately, through elitist representatives who keep a large percentage of property for themselves, and whatever is left over given to the people.

Which would you rather live in?

Under capitalism property is not distributed. It's earned.

From your link:

Over the summer, the U.S. west coast has seen ferocious wildfires that have burned millions acres and destroyed tens-of-thousands of American homes, (fires that seemed to stop at the Canadian border). Were these fires orchestrated to chase the population away from the U.S. West Coast?

Doesn't it bother you that the websites you rely on for your "facts" have headlines like:


???

Don't you realize that quoting sites like that just makes you look like nut, and is in no way persuasive to those who doubt what you're saying? It's kind of the opposite really.

Maybe just post those other sources then. Leading with the "full retard" stuff makes you look like a crank, easy to dismiss.
