  1. quite a naive understanding you have
  2. I dont completly base my understandings off of cartoons...I just found it funny and somewhat true.
  3. government is the biggest culprit in causing wage slavery, poverty, and bigotry.

    Well maybe not bigotry, but it doesn't particularly help with that problem anyway.

  5. i find it funny that you find it somewhat true!
  6. It's a much better solution than, "Let's trust the Military Industrial Complex to start many conflicts and shed American blood to benefit the industry owners and to spread grief across the globe."
  7. At least it admits the government is only a burden. :confused_2:
  8. Jeez I need more socialists on this forum :hide:

  9. I guess if you think the world is full of bigots and slave owners you are right.

    Though if you do I don't understand why you would want to form a government to allow them to centralize their power with your money.
  10. Yet capitalism cant exist without poverty...
  11. Because money isnt everything in life. I would rather everyone have the chance of a good life free from exploitation life rather than just myself.
  12. Humanity can't exist without poverty. We can definitely reduce the levels of poverty by allowing people to do what they think is best with the fruits of their labor. Capitalism is the best way to do that.
  13. we're small in number but we're here :hello:

    and i lol'd too

  14. not so

  15. false

    income disparities do not equal poverty

    Actually I agree that capitalism creates poverty. In the sense that it generates wealth and redefines 'rich'

    So how is giving government total control of ... well everything ... going to accomplish that? lol

    if you can't trust people to get along without some form of moderation how can you trust people to be moderators?

    Really? Because I think several decades of data severely disagrees with 'not so'

    Freedom and Economic Growth in the Poorest Countries - Ken Zahringer - Mises Daily

    I don't expect statists to support their arguments beyond flinging handfuls of their own poo at dissenters until they are literally overwhelmed with fecal matter so don't worry about it.

  17. why not?

  18. Really? Because I never said it did not decrease poverty.

    I said:

    not so.

    not entirely so.

    and if by that you mean "reduce the levels of poverty" then,

    not so.
  19. Care to provide any facts?

    It's not your fault you cannot.

    I think the saying goes something like this "Everything brought forward in favor of Socialism during the last hundred years, in thousands of writings and speeches, all the blood which has been spilt by the supporters of Socialism, cannot make socialism workable."
