The gardening example is an example of two different systems working together for good results. Ask yourself, would Russia allow 30% of the food they grow be destroyed, without feeding one person? If the answer is yes, then flip a coin to choose Capitalism or Communism!!
BIG ERROR, JOSEPH -- you are limiting yourself to a choice between American capitalism and Soviet Union communism. The young man who started this discussion made the same big error.
School history courses here in America don't tell students that American capitalism is good for people who have no conscience. Bernie Madoff did well for a while but he's in prison for life. The people on Wall Street who gave us the 2008/2009 economic crash should be in prison and some of them might soon be there. Other sociopaths / psychopaths are about two percent of the people you might meet on a typical day; they are about 25% of the prison population.
School history courses in the Soviet Union didn't tell students how Josef Stalin got rid of the millions of small privately-owned farms before World War Two. He took the crops they'd raised and sent them to people elsewhere. I understand that between twenty and thirty million starved to death.
AGAIN, by limiting yourself to the two economic systems named by the ininformed young man who started this discussion, you're ignoring what millions of people here in the US of A, and many millions of people elsewhere in the world are doing. To learn more, google "employee ownership".
I agree Tom. I thought that the subject was too general and what I said was with no thought on my part. I would be a hypocrite to say one is better than the other, since I've slammed both for their inhumane treatment using the same examples as you did!! Just today on another site, I gave the example about American capitalism. The average McDonalds worker has to work about 200yrs. or more to make what the CEO makes in one year!! I know what employee ownership is and it does work, but I will Google employee ownership, because I just might be behind the curve!
OK G, now find a diagram of a fair, just, functioning government.
In that diagram, I would rather go with anarchy than others.
And where do you get that anarchy is fair, just or functioning?
I have got that point because in my country, we need anarchism. Politicians are corrupted, everything is corrupted.
And that didn't come close to answering my question.
Yeah, Susan. I worked with a college intern who claimed to be an anarchist. He was the most domineering person in the campaign. He inspired a question.
Put five anarchists in a room and what happens? They fight over who will be the supervising anarchist.
Nothing is black or white. we should take the best of all systems. one is not better over the other.
What makes you think 'black or white' ? There is nothing about colorism. I think anarchism is the best way to have freedom.
