    I voted 4 capitalisme cuz it's more nuanced. really capitalism is just a buzz word it's just economic orthodoxy which has a tendency to get skewed as fuck and then resets through violent revolution, or more likely a brutal suppression of the poors. Thankfully with advances in autonomous robots the revolution will be all but impossible as well as even opening the door to poor reduction strategies without seriously degrading available services. Obviously some will be kept, like pets because what good is power if you can't excercise it upon a mass of ignorant chattel.

    I was actually just thinking about how social justice and "rooting for the underdog" is a Trojan horse for socialism and I wish there was a way of making the unfair more fair without making everything retarded

    Too late everything is retarded. And it's not so bad.

    Communism wins yet again. Marx predicted the outcome of this poll.

    they're just tools that depend on the quality of the people using them

    I like what BAP had to say about it, though I'm pretty sure he was quoting someone else - both systems see man as a walking stomach; they cater to man's most basic needs and desires and in and of themselves don't help to improve him or his people

    This is a low level discussion of the type that only happens in popular culture and not actually in any academic circles.

    I'm saying it's stupid and betrays a lack of even surface level understanding of the subject.

    Nobody is discussing "cmunism vs capitalism" because it is a solved problem that the whole universe has moved past already: virtually everyone except shit like North Korea, has mixed economies and that's been the case for 100 years.

    So the answer to this thread is "Markets are good but need regulation, in modern post industrial societies there should be social safety nets to bolster a minimum standard of living and certain goods and services should be public goods."

    I.e. it's complicated. But the dichotomy as stared is simply completely unimportant.

    Another buzzword that tells you someone knows nothing: "Keynesian".
