    simple question i'm sure. Are you a poverty creator or a wealth creator?

    I'm a capitalist. A real liberal not like the crap namby pamby imitations we have today who mistook liberalism for populism. IMO socialists are outright idiots and almost always peasants.
    You are a mong.


    I wouldn't consider myself a 'socialist' because I'm not that conceited, but I definitely prefer socialism.

    Capitalism.

    The only cases where the masses have escaped from grinding poverty, the only cases in recorded history, have been where there has been capitalism and largely free trade.

    The record of history is crystal clear.

    The spontaneous organisation of men emerging from the noble pursuit of happiness and peaceful cooperation is the only system men can prosper under. Of that I am convinced.

    I think it would be better if you used the term pro-capitalist rather than capitalist though, because a capitalist can also mean a proprietor of capital or employer of wage labour.

    Capitalist. If you work hard you should be able to reap the rewards of what you sow. It's not a perfect system, but it's far better than the alternatives.

    Nothing. Has nothing to do with capitalism or socialism.

    That is really just an ethical position rather than a technical economic position.

    Do you have anything vaguely constructive to say? I've been disappointed twice now.

    My view as an economics student, shared by the vast majority of fellow students i know, is that the overwhelming majority of socialists are totally economically uneducated and most people tend to become more capitalist the more they learn about economics. So, sorry but i honestly think that, although they might not be thick, the majority of socialists, when it comes to economics, are totally flawed
    It seems to me most people become more socialist the more they learn about politics and ethics. Most outright capitalists are politically uneducated although they might not be thick, but when it comes to the ethics, their thinking is totally flawed.

    You still 'reap your rewards' under a socialist system?

    And also, you've done that annoying thing where you suggest that income and hard working are positively correlated.

    Capitalist and socialist are way to overused by people who don't know enough to classify themselves as such, no offence meant, I don't know enough either.

    Oh yes, like those premiership footballers that work 100x harder than a heart surgeon... Capitalism is a very unfair system and I don't see how it's "better than the alternatives". It may be better for you.
