Round 2
Pro

Thats not poverty. Those losers have food, and if they dont its their fault for not having a job.
Con
#4
Even if every single poor person in capitalism was just lazy, they would still exist. PRO has the burden of proof to show that no poor people exist in capitalism.

IN CAPITALISM.

In order to be in capitalism, you need to be a buyer or seller, so you cannot be poor if you are either of those.
Con
#6
What you said makes no sense, economies are capitalist, not individual transactions. Furthermore, the living people under the poverty line are still at the very least food buyers.
