    No need to refute Marx, reality has already proven time and time again that communism doesn’t work in practice.

    Btw your argument only applies to “pure” capitalism, without any government interference. Homelessness is not really an issue in many European countries.

      You mean the reality where every 1st world nation on the planet did everything in their power to keep Communism from working. Bahahaha

        Didn’t take much to stop a system dreamed up by idealists and idiots from working. The very concept is flawed.

          Tell me you haven’t read Marx without telling me you haven’t read Marx.

          Seriously though, Marx is like the guy you go read if you want a ruthless critique of idealism. I’d go so far as to say it’s the reason his theories became so popular in the first place.

            Who cared about Marx? He wrote a book. He didn’t lead a country. Nobody cares about theories when they don’t hold up in practice. And they never have.

              You’re right, nobody has ever cared about Marx. No communist revolutionaries anywhere have ever called themselves Marxists. If they did, then their projects must have surely collapsed by now. That’s because Marx was very clear that his political theories were not made to be adaptable or revisable based on new information and changing conditions. No, that would be far too scientific for someone we can agree was clearly an idealist.
