    When we drink water, we experience inequality, poverty, and climate change. Stop drinking water?

    Not to be snarky, just never saw any good evidence full-socialism fixes these issues. I’m still okay with leaning in that basic direction, eg to support the homeless.

      Drinking water doesn’t CAUSE inequality, poverty and climate change. Capitalism does.

      Whether or not the answer is socialism, capitalism is the problem.

        What’s your proof? Can you point me to a society that is 100% functional under socialism and never has these issues?

        Leading question, I know, but the reason there’s not more support for this idea is that it’s hard to prove.

          Me: capitalism is inherently flawed and will inevitably cause poverty. I don’t know if socialism is the answer but capitalism is the problem.

          You: demands proof of perfect socialist society

            @VikingHippie @Katana314, the solution is not some or other -ism, but the sovereignty of the people as a base and not that of some leader or lobbies of banks and multinationals. These should always be subordinated to the needs of the people and not their leaders

          Take these ideas and use your own brain to imagine the results.

          Capitalism: rewards you for being selfish.

          Socialism: rewards you for being alive.

          Which one do you think is going to incentivise asshole behaviour? And which one do you think will end up being marked by such behaviour?
