Karl Marx was wrong about more stuff than he got right, I never liked him he looked smelly and dirty and he was a lazy malcontent.Do you know who I did like his successor Eduard Bernstein who saw a peaceful evolutionary democratic path through gradual reform . But Socialism is inevitable for reasons they ignored , we simply cant survive unless we heavily regulate our conduct, greed and inequality are killing the planet. And if we have to slow economic growth to the pace of a snail , so what? all the better, rapid growth is reckless
The planet is going to hell in a hat basket in our to save it we must radically change
Well capitalism has lifted many people out of poverty, I believe capitalism is better and what we should strive toward.
Socialism has killed 100 million people depending on your classifications.
Note the poor conduct on my opponent.
the black book of communism has been debunked
Socialism is what we're talking about. My points have been dropped, my opponents rebuttal is unclear/unsourced.
WEll its simple, Capitalism is better now, in the same way a horse and buggy was before cars
So we haven't discovered/invented socialism? Yes we have, a long time ago.
Socialism has basically never worked.
Note my opponents poor conduct, I fell I've given good reasons why Socialism is bad
As RM said, 2/5 isn't half and thus your vote cannot stand. It is removed
Note for my RFD I said R3 meaning R4
2/5 isn't half.
