The problem with attempts at socialism were they were premature, very premature, the world economy and technology were undeveloped, you cant run till you learn to walk

Round 1
Pro
Once the world economy developes properly we can all co operate and make like better and more equal, e can move beyond capitalism once capitalism is full grown
Con
Socialism is bad for 3 reasons

1.Giving Government too much power is a bad idea. When you give government a new law to enforce, like taking money, It gives the state and police too much power

2.Never succeeded.Venezuela turned to turmoil because of it

3.With Big government comes corruption, The Soviet Union was the biggest socialist project was a total evil state.Mao killed 30 Million people under a socialist system.Power and evil comes

Round 2
Pro
What about Norway , Norway has more State owned assets is more collective than both Venezuela and red China and enjoys the worlds best quality of life, so you like to cherry pick the losers that are in no way close to socialist but the most socialist nation by definition on earth is a paradise, eh? and studies show people that live in big government welfare states, are extatically happy, they have no cares only rainbows and free ice cream

Next RD will be defense

The World economy is already developed and always changing. Already under a capitalist we already work together to find a common goal like getting out of recessions.{1}What do you mean by capitalism is fully grown? A world economy isn't "grown". My opponent's argument is lacking with no facts and his personal opinion. Hardly convincing or really an argument.
