Suggested Daily Topic

The daily topic for today is:

Is capitalism is a fair society? There has been many issues with capitalism such as the weath disparity that has grown out of control in the US. Things that would beneifit socity aren't done because they aren't profitable. Other things that don't benefit society that are profitial are everywhere. Is it fair that the flow of money decides how and what is done in a society?

In case you don't know who I am here is my intro post from way back:

It is self-interest that drives human behavior. It is not a matter of 'fair' but what is valued.

There's too much corruption in the world for any system for society to be ideal.

I don't believe there exists today a "fair" form of government or societal system.


Right. I mean, are "unfair" people even able to build a "fair" system, and are they willing to?


Until the people of world are able to reach some form of "Collective consciousness" we will never truly thrive.
We have the most complex understanding minds that we know of...yet look to the ants...there is no need for ANY ant to ever ask what it needs to do next....they ALL "just know". Science will tell us " it has something to do with smells and the scents they leave behind."......riiiight.
Have you ever heard of the ant super colony that exists literally, in almost every place on Earth? If not...look it up.
But back to the point....if ants can achieve that level of PEACEFUL world colonization, and we can't, I say it may be time to reexamine exactly which species is actually the most "civilized".
Just my thoughts.


True sir, I couldnt agree more. We are just "intimidated" by the complex, collective organization of those little creatures. With less than human intelligence, they are able to do things we can only dream of. If the wisdom and diligence of ants are expanded to the size of human activity, this world would have been too good to leave.

One thing for sure is that nothing is worse than communism, yet I believe that capitalism has its details that can harm a certain part of the population that lives


the system is characterized by a very simple production process and the non-establishment of private property.

Capitalism with a social tendency (this phrase is surely a heresy for some sociologists) has been applied, paradoxically, in many of the countries with progressive governments. Faced with the failure of the doctrines of communism or materialist socialism, leftist rulers have had no choice but to continue using capitalism, but giving it a social turn, so that it benefits the majorities, that is, the people

U look amazing in your profile pic.

I'm reminded of this old saying: Under capitalism, man exploits man. Under communism, it's just the opposite.

Capitalism, as long as it exists, can be used for good or for bad. In this context, - (usa) - would have to support all the countries that have been using capitalism with social tendency, but paradoxically, --- (usa) ---, in his speech he says to support democratic governments, but in practice it continues with the traditional line of a right-wing government, supporting in the background the validity of hypercapitalism

Yes it is unfair because the poor are not getting the support they should be provided and gets mocked looked down on and arrested or killed so yeah

Capitalism is not good in any kind of government

  ·  3년 전

Yes @Bidbots, it is not a government at all.

Capitalism promotes economic growth by creating an open market competition.... The result of capitalism is a decentralized economic system, if we compare capitalism while countries controlled by socialism drown in inflation, one case of this would be my country Venezuela, which every day starves children to death and the country collapses more and more.

I didnot receive my SBD from your previous giveaway,why? why you post fake giveaway?


You have to win to get the SBD. Winners are picked at random.

thanks for the giveaway. I got reward

If capitalism were like nuclear engineering or astrophysics, surely, for an in-depth analysis, it would correspond to professionals or researchers of the aforementioned areas to speak specifically about it, although every citizen who reads could give a personal opinion about it. area according to their experience or experience; for that reason, on capitalism they can have an opinion from a social scientist to a countryman who lives under the influence of this system.

In this world nothing is fair!
So do capitalism.

@alan369, you are correct but not in most of the situations.
For ex: see we have steemit platform. Everything is fair and transparent here.
Am I right?

Now thats a hard question with a simple answer, No, capitalism is not fair but life isn't fair, capitalism offers the most opportunities to someone to get ahead while socialism makes you conform to the system until it starves you to death with debt thanks to the unsustainable social programs.

I wish I can remove the concept of capitalism from our history.

Welcome back @izaid

Yeah, this is a really, really tough one!! I don't think there is a fair way. I do believe in working hard, and if you have the ability to make money, you should, and help those that can't.

If it is fair, although sometimes we choose bad partners.

Congratulation to the winners

Is it 'fair' that money decides what is done in a society. No. Money should never be a defining factor. Capitalism at its core is not a bad thing. What has happened is we have lost sight of our purpose in life. I think quite a few things would be quite profitable if the money was spent on helping more. We are no longer a capitalistic society we are materialistic that's when things went wrong. In some areas we've made it illegal to give food to others, namely the homeless. (Not all of them choose to be there) We've made it illegal to collect rainwater. Some areas cannot have veggie gardens or fruit trees. There is so much more. Big companies don't want us doing any of this because it 'might' cut into their profits. That is the main reason why it is not 'fair' money decides what gets done. It's out of greed, not necessity. It is to line someone else's pocket book.

This quote comes to mind with this subject.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

I think I'm going to leave things here. I'm a little too passionate about this subject.

Capitalism is a broad term that can work in different ways. The idea of capotalism can work well if it is executed well. In our current world, I wouldn't say that it is.

Yeah, I think it's fair.

The only fair thing it's me winning the contest

Very tough question. I guess I don't see a workable alternative that doesn't limit personal freedom.

Its just going with trend. Whatever we think is not implementing because riches always win here. Society too give them priority either they look to them with pity in future. But this trend must be stopped.

Capitalism is decidedly not fair.

if you goy money you have power that is it.

yo como vivo en socialismo puro u.u no conozco nada mas que eso

I think capitalism "with a heart" is about the best we can do. Socialism fails every time with ugly consequences.

Love that !

capitalism is a spontaneous system that does not admit a rational justification, and by adding to this system, the market and the individual decisions of each person to satisfy their needs, brings as a consequence the distribution of the income of this society spontaneously, being This is a process involving a large number of subjects, in fact the question is whether society is just enough to live with a capitalist system

There have been many economic and political systems that exist now and existed in the past and they all seem to be guided by "The Golden Rule" = "If you have the gold you make the rules." Fair? No, but that's the way human nature has operated for thousands of years so I'm not all that optimistic that it will change anytime soon.

Every country has the same issue, flow of money makes only profitable things not work for the betterment of society

capitalism is not fair for equal growth

Capitalism may not be fair but even life is rarely fair. Besides, if it wasn't for capitalism there wouldnt be any competition, and hence innovations such as steem/steemit etc would not be around, or would take way longer to be conceived.

But yeah the problem now in our societies it's all about the money and f**ck the people. As always we took things to extremes and sooner or later we'll start paying for it. lol

Try applying communism for a change in your country and you´ll see how it´ll quickly break down into corruption.

Is capitalism is a fair society?

Answer: NO

  ·  3년 전

Define fair. Is it fair that Neymar's feet are so much more coordinated than mine? Or that he worked really hard, risked his life, gave up bad foods and free time to dedicate himself to something he loved, then became successful? Is it fait that his parents passed on their genetic advantages to him?

Is fairness really the issue? Is it economics or government that creates wealth disparity? Is it the rules and laws that skew the playing field towards those with money? Is it fair that some people dedicate decades of their life to building wealth and are then forced to share that wealth with others? Is it fair that some people dedicate decades of their life to serving wealthy people and are then dismissed without compensation? A gun can kill a rich man as easily as a poor man, but justice rarely gets served on the innocent welfare mom killed by a stray bullet.

Fair is hard to define. Maybe capitalism is fair enough, but humans just suck.

Hey, I am back here after a long time. How are you?


I'm fine. Welcome back.

People hate capitalism until they live in a socialist country.

It's never been fair. All politicala and religion systems sucks . Humanity should invent something else

Fair? Hahahahahahahaa

The answer is hiding in the question. No

Capitalism is the bane of our existence. The haves hold on to it with an iron fist often at the expense of the have nots well being and the have nots work like dogs thinking some day they could be a have. The have nots often sacrifice their own well being and half the time only benefit the haves. It's a vicious circle in the end.

from my point of view, that capitalism is not fit to be mobilized in social life, since we society requires mutual yield not for certain groups.

not everyone judges capitalism as good for society, because capitalism is special. so people need something that can be taken publicly by society.

I wouldn't know, honestly.

capitalism is the result for the benefit of the group, so not good when applied in the community.

I believe capitalism has its own role for the society to become more progressive. On the other hand, I also believe that capitalism can also effect negative in the society if the private owners of the profit did not do their part well.

fair is a word nowadays which does not actually exists, if you have power everything is in your favour.

Greetings to all ✌️😀

In theory capitalism is fair, but in practice it is not. A lot of government regulation is used to try and prevent "cheating" the system.

Capitalism is very unfair to society because it embraces a market system that only benefits the owners of capital. In my country Indonesia, capitalism is very contradictory to the state basic that has been laid out but along with the progress of the era of globalization, capitalism has penetrated to all parts of the world and my country, this is very harmful to society, only the owner of the increasingly rich capital and the weaker economic community more oppressed.

It is actually unfair but that is how the reality is. We are not living in an idealistic world.

don't think it works due to others ideals of how things work, which causes matters to crash..

I think it is fair. People, who got much money worked hard for it. If someone wants to become rich, he gotta use his resources to do the most profitable things out of it.

I don’t think we have a real capitalism. But I’m not if pure capitalism will solve our actual problems.

Thanks for the contest. In life there are winners and there are losers. There needs to be a balance between the two and true capitalism is beneficial; what we have is a regulatory capture version of capitalism where laws are written for the benefit of a select few disallowing true free markets.

I could go into a lengthy discussion of why this is an ill-posed question. Instead, I'll restrict myself to the free market. The free market, by definition, is a form of freedom: economic freedom. It and political freedom are mutually reinforcing. Many of the problems we're having in the West are due to the lack of economic freedom. Europe's once-hired-never-fired labor laws have led to permanent unemployment. Rent-seeking, that is, seeking economic returns outside the market by using politics, is at high levels, reducing growth and reinforcing inequality. In Venezuela, Chavismo consisted of destroying economic freedoms, which made destroying political freedom easier.

Suggested reading: F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

Capitalism is one of the unfair things in this world. The rich and wealthy determines what happens and what does not.

I think it's not fair for a portion of the world to decide over others. Fair would be a system in which everyone has an equal chance according to their ability. But I believe that the majority of people are not prepared to assume the responsibility of being masters of the destiny of a nation, a process of preparation, awareness, education is required... to make capable citizens; and it is there that the social and educational system in the less developed countries has failed, creating a total dependency. Capitalism reigns because we are not ready for another system yet.


I'll probably get hate mail, but here goes.
If capitalism is not jacked around by government controls etc. it is fair. Help enough people get what they want and you can get what you want. Are ethics always utilized, No, but eventually that will come back around.
Do big dog CEO's make enormous amounts of money, Yes, should they, sometimes. Whether people like it or not the founder or CEO of a company took risks, created ideas, invested time energy and money, etc. to make a company that provides something people want, it also provides other people with jobs, and creates cashflow for communities, and other businesses etc.
Ok enough for now.

Oof I just want to join the contest

I think capitalism is a step in the development of human societies, certainly it isn't perfect, but who is...

Yes it is because it allows people to have private property and access to free markets.

Capitalism could only be argued as fair if everybody started on an equal footing.

It is disingenuous to suggest otherwise.

I do not know how bad capitalism is, but for someone like me, who lives in "socialism". I see capitalism as a way out of this crisis that brought false socialism.

It is inconceivable to think a child of a billionaire hasn’t more chance at success than a child of rent paying, minimum wage parents

The USA also has a similarly textured history. In a little over 200 years, the nation established itself and has overtaken all of the existing global powers and stands as the most dynamic and powerful economy ever seen in history. At the same time, this too has come at a genocidal cost to the Natives of North America; 300 years of slavery, 150 years (and counting) of Jim Crow; and an overwhelming military presence around the globe affirming American hegemony over its imperial interests.

What you incorrectly call “Capitalism” unfairly spreads its benefits even to people who have not earned them: i.e. it is unfair to entrepreneurs, inventors, innovators.

Only a very few get their just rewards: and then they are bad mouthed, and slandered, and attacked by those who fail to appreciate their work, but are only too ready to take the fruits for granted.

Capitalism is not. (i.e. life is not “capitalism” - not here, not there, nowhere.)

The results are reasonably fair, but perhaps less so.

I’m making an ends vs. means distinction in terms of fairness.

Generally the process is fair. I think one has to define fair process, though to fully address this issue. Also, the process of exchange is mostly fair. Its bartering with money.

I’ve addressed the flaws of capitalism elsewhere on Quora, which you are welcome to read.

Nothing in life is fair.

Is it fair that some are tall - others short

pretty/hansome - homely




is communism fair that a more productive citizen gets paid the same as a less productive?

What is Capitalism? (Simple description in terms of essentials)

People live in societies. However, each individual in that social group is still an independent individual having individual thoughts, ideas, desires and goals in life.I cannot compel another individual to follow my religion. I can talk to them about it, if they are willing to listen, but in the end its their choice and and ultimately their decision - on what faith to follow. I might follow Christianity while the other might end up becoming an atheist. Hey - your life, your faith, my life, my faith.

In the same way, I cannot ask another man to make a living the way I want to make a living. Its his choice, his decision. Just like how I make my living is my choice, my decision. I do not work for you and I do not expect that you work for me. Hey- your life; support it by your work. My life; I’ll support it by my work.

Capitalism doesn’t allow equality from birth and therefore is inherently unfair.

good wilk capitalism.

There are many good things about capitalism, but please understand, fairness is not one of them.

Capitalism could only be argued as fair if everybody started on an equal footing. It is disingenuous to suggest otherwise. It is inconceivable to think a child of a billionaire hasn’t more chance at success than a child of rent paying, minimum wage parents.

No, not by definition.

However, there is nothing to keep companies from being extremely socially responsible, paying workers more, for sharing more of the profits. So, capitalism could be fair, but it generally is not.

In all this, the beneficiaries of Capitalism consider it eminently fair and the losers (those lucky to be alive) feel otherwise.

Capitalismis is not good at all, just a fairy tale.

capitalism is a worst thing. It must be demolished from the society.

I do not think it is fair and if they are a society, then we do realize at the end of everything. Everything is controlled by the side that has the power and the others can not give much opinion of it.

In this capitalist society, it is not possible for a just society to arise. Because that can only grow people who have large capital, so they have income and high profits.


society of Capitalism in real and
systematically killing the people for succeeding in impoverishing the people and
make them suffer, see the fact that the gap that occurs rich is increasing and the poor no less dramatically increased.

In the system of individual capitalism and a small group of individuals dominate the market to achieve its own interests without respecting the needs of society and respecting the common good.

In a capitalist system a capitalist monopolizes commodities and hoards them. If the goods are exhausted in the marketplace he is issuing them for sale at double prices that strangle the consumer and the weak.

The basic system of capitalism makes life an arena of price competition. Everyone is racing for victory. So that life in the system of capitalism turns into usury where the strong ones pounce on the weak.

Deprivation of productive forces. Capitalism makes the workforce a commodity that must be subject to the laws of demand and necessity that make it a good that can be offered at any time. These workers may be replaced with others who have lower wages and are able to work more and serve them better.

A common phenomenon in capitalist society is the emergence of unemployment that encourages the owner of the company not to increase the energy that will burden it.

The life of a tumultuous capitalist society. This is the logical consequence of the competition between two classes. One is concerned with the collection of money by all means. While the other one is not given the opportunity to find their own basic needs of life without mercy.

Capitalism is, by far, the justest system that exists. This is because it works freely, any other system obliges people through the coercion of laws imposed by the majority (even if they are not fair).

The differences in wealth are because there are people who work much more than others, they are smarter, anyway. In addition, in a capitalist system, anyone can become rich.

If something can not generate a profit, it is because it does not produce, therefore, it is not beneficial. The flow of money should not decide, it is the law that decides, money only influences, what is wrong with it? Money usually means production and intelligence.

Dominated lust. The people of capitalism adhere to the principles of political democracy and government. In general, the democracy they are touting is coupled with the lusts that dominate and away from the truth and justice.

Immoral. Capitalism views man as a material thing. Therefore man is kept away from his spiritual and moral tendencies. Even in the system of capitalism between economy and morals are separated far away.

Capitalism is not good in any kind of government there are always people wanting to spoil everything

Cruel. Capitalism often wipes out more commodities by being burned or thrown overboard for fear of falling prices due to the high supply. They dare to do that when there are still many nations who screamed hungry.

Wasteful. The people of capitalism produce luxury goods with massive advertisements regardless of the basic needs of society. For they seek only profit.

Inhumane. The capitalist often throws away a worker for reasons of his lack of productivity. But this cruelty began to be lightened lately with the improvement in the body of capitalism.

In a certain way capitalism can not be called fair or unfair, it is a term that is denoted to a country with certain parameters of economic development, which encompasses all areas in the country that applies it, although it is known that they have existed differences in relation to the disparity of social classes because of a capitalist country, as are the social terms used to denominate the different types of societies according to their economic capacity, as they are, upper class, middle class and lower class, but of certain way each link of this economic-social chain, directly influences the development of a capitalist country, allowing each of its classes to be a fundamental part of the capitalist process, and justly and unfortunately the money is the one that marks the social guidelines, I can only say that I prefer to live in a capitalist country but with employment and growth opportunities, than to live in a country like the one I am living in "VENEZUELA" that could be In a socialist system that marginalized and undermined the entrails of a country that is totally rich, converting it to its own covenience and calling it "economic system for the people".

Excelente tema el de hoy

Capitalism needs cyclical crises to overcome its contradictions. When this last crisis appears, first in the financial field, but automatically transferring it to all levels. Those who are not the owners of capital and sell their labor power, largely equal to the level of their salary. It is not exactly the same, but in the scheme of production there is no difference.
You postulate an alternative way out of the crisis, and even capitalism. Where do you have to walk and how? We have to distinguish two things. One is to get out of the crisis, to recover the level of economic activity, and another to leave the system. While we have capitalism we will always have recurring crises. The same we can leave this, but we will have others. How is this crisis sold? It is a big problem for countries like the Spanish State, because we do not have a strong productive capacity, and that has also been weakening. When there are people thinking about the recovery, you should think that the recovery was not recovered in 2005 or 2006. The wages that are being lost, the welfare state that is destroying it or the precariousness of the job cause us to be far below, and It is going to assume that when recovery starts now at much lower levels, when it starts.
It is one thing to get out of the crisis, which will happen as long as there is capitalism. I think that to reach a satisfactory, fair, harmonious or attractive society, than to destroy capitalism. A green capitalism, or with a human face, can not be given.
I believe that there is no model, and that I should not do it. This model must be built from the bottom up, in agreement with the social agents, in each moment, responding to the collective needs, according to a series of principles. An erroneous made and closed model The society is changing so fast that things that are worth 6 months ago no longer do it. What we do say is that, first, in capitalism you can not have that model, it has to be an anti-capitalist model; second, with private property you can not get anything of what you want in an alternative society, then you can not have private property, it has to be, administration by society as a whole and not by technicians; and finally, with transformed values, not of money and material well-being, but of harmonic systems, of justice, collaboration, of building one thing among all, but for all.
There should be a socially planned system, according to society. With this system we are not going anywhere, and it is impossible to humanize it. What is happening is that it is dehumanizing even more. It has a system that is not the capitalist, and it has to be under totally different premises, seeking the common good and the happiness of the people in the place of the benefit of a few.

It's amazing!

Isn't fair but it's how the world works.

Capitalism doesn't support social welfare. Business man and leaders will enjoy life not common man!

Makin' random comments and no and eat my ærs if you think otherwise.

Allocate resources for the public good...

The prominent characteristic of the capitalist system is the freedom of the individual based on the property rights of the means of production.

Neither capitalism nor socialism are just, here in Venezuela we are victims of socialism, many people die of hunger.

Capitalism views, the role and / or state intervention here as much as possible at the point of Zero (none) and that, if any, intervention is limited to guaranteeing freedom itself for each individual in the form of regulation of pro-free market legislation.

The capitalist system as a substitute for the communist system had a devastating effect on the development of the world economy

Prosperity will be born when individual freedom is realized.

The slavery system is created from the production relationships between people who master the means of production with people who have only labor.

Particularly in the economic field, the government is prohibited from intervening without justifiable reasons, because with the government's entry into the economic interests of every individual in the absence of the right reasons, the state is deemed to violate freedom and has acted unjustly.

If traced from the historical development of human social system, capitalism is the fourth stage after the feudal system.

the freedom that is adored and offered by capitalism is apparently false and only gives birth to unhealthy competition and leads to the dichotomy of the class society that leads to injustice both in social and economic rights

Freedom is a fundamental aspect of justice. As one aspect of justice, freedom is freedom limited by justice.

Capitalism can encourage colonialism and / or imperialism as a result of industrialization, the need for processed materials, natural resources and energy is needed especially since the explosion of industrial revolution in England.

In the capitalist economic system the measure of the goods and services is the utility factor.

Each individual seeks to use his capital to obtain the highest possible result.

Some scholars define capitalism as a system that began to prevail in Europe in the sixteenth century through the nineteenth century, at the time of the development of European commercial banking where a group of individuals and groups could act as a particular entity that could own or trade in property personal, especially capital goods, such as land and people for the process of change from capital goods to finished goods

Therefore, the free market will run harmoniously like a cosmic order when every economic actor is left free in the pursuit of his economic interests.

The two figures of capitalism used in this study are Adam Smith and Paul A. Samuelson. Adam Smith is the funding father of the system of capitalism, while Samuelson is a modern economist in a very famous kynesian line in America.

In this capitalist system also does not allow the birth of a just society. Because that can only grow people who have large capital, so they have income and high profits. Consequently there is a term, the rich getting richer and the poorer the poorer.

It is clear to us, then, that not all economic systems in this world are all negatively affected. There must be a good side to it. Even though the capitalist system can generate large profits still can not create a just and prosperous society.

According to Adam Smith as quoted by Sonny Keraf, that the free market is a social system of modern society that ensures the realization of natural freedom and justice

The principle of "justice" embraced by the capitalist economic system is "everyone receives rewards based on his work performance".

monopolistic action is a major factor that can hamper the viability of the free market system

Capitalism is an economic and social system that tends toward the collection of wealth by individuals without royal disturbances and based on profit.

In view of Value, the Capitalist Economic System also assumes that the highest value of the economy is when the needs are met and the material can be obtained.

Among the principal thoughts which in its development became the basis of liberalism is economic freedom, ie free from all kinds of controls will result in the creation of a prosperous and orderly society.

Adam Smith was a classical capitalist economic figure who criticized a system of mercantilism that he deemed less supportive of the economy of society.

The emergence of the system of capitalism is a response to the classical debate between mercantilism and the physiocrats about efforts to increase the state's wealth

Capitalism is characterized by an attempt to increase profits or accumulate high capital.

In the Capitalist will get a big profit with big capital as well. So if the profits generated large, will automatically get many benefits

the role of the state in the economic field according to the system of capitalism can not be separated from the laissez faire conception campaigned by Adam Smith in the 17th century

According to Karl Marx, the development of the social system of society begins primitive communal systems, slavery, feudalism, capitalism, socialism and communism. The development of the social system of society above, caused by the development of productive forces or economic factors.

Owners of capital in doing business trying to achieve maximum profits.

Capitalism system is a social system that is born from the relationship of production relations and productive forces.

There are negative side-effects of unrestrained capitalism but a Universal Basic Income would offset some of them. Check out @mannacurrency and @scottsantens

Until now it is the economic model that has worked the most in the world. I believe that the United States is a capitalist system but at the same time it is very social.

Capitalism also tends to be unfriendly to human living spaces and other organisms because industrial activity encourages natural exploitation without taking into account the detrimental effects of environmental damage that slowly but surely lead to imbalances with the breakdown of the food chain and the extinction of animal and plant ecosystems.

Capitalism or Capital is an economic system in which trade, industry and means of production are controlled by private owners with the aim of gaining advantage in the market economy.

capitalism sees individual freedom as a milestone that can give birth to equilibrium.

In the twentieth century the defenders of the capitalist system often replaced long-term capitalism with phrases such as free enterprise and private enterprise and replaced with rents capitalists and investors in reaction to the negative connotations associated with capitalism.

If asked about the opinion of the Capitalist Economy system, my own opinion is less agree. Why? Because of origin we already know that this system was born from the west.

Capitalism is a system that promotes the collection of capital, economic freedom, the property of solitude, the freedom of the market and the commerce for profit.

At the political level, freedom is incarnated in the form of a democratic system of neo-liberalism. In the economic realm, it is left to market mechanisms to find a market balance through demand (supply) and supply (supply) interactions or in Adam Smith's terms through invesible hands,

in Islam, always constrained by norms and religion. Because he is based on the Qur'an and the hadith of the Prophet. In Islam the treasures we have still have other people's parts.

capitalism does not have a widely accepted universal definition

The government has dominated the trade for centuries, in which the policy has created economic inequality.

The capitalist economic system recognizes individual ownership of economic resources or factors of production.

Count me in

In the capitalist system the existence of God has been abolished, because they hold that man is the one who has the right to govern his life without any religion or norms limiting them.

Government intervention in the capitalist economic system is minimal. Governments are more domiciled as "watchers" and "protectors" of the economy

Communities can develop the potential and take initiative in the economy

Capitalism has a long history, since the invention of commercial systems undertaken by private parties

With capitalism can not be denied the birth of a selfish generation, matrealisme and menduhankan wealth

Today, capitalism is seen not as a view of life that wants profit.

I as a Muslim would frankly oppose this Capitalist myself.

The collapse of the feudalism system is the starting point of the birth of this system.

we don't have capitalism in america.
it's crony capitalism.
capitalism in it's true form is the best at raising the standard of living for everyone.

Capitalism worked fantastic in the United States until we decided to let global family dynasties create our so-called money out of thin air and charge us interest to use it.

Hi @bunnypuncher. Thank you for motivating us to think.

No. Capitalism is not a just society. But justice is an ambiguous concept.
Socialists detest capitalism, but many enjoy all their splendor, with the money of others.
It is not fair that the flow of money marks the guidelines of a society ... but a lot of help, if the members of society, businessmen and governments, assume a commitment to the common good.

Those who works have the right to enjoy a great life, those who don't want to, doesn't deserve anything, there's no problem with it, that's capitalism

I am a young man from Venezuela, and believe me all, capitalism is 100% preferable to socialism, however it is a very broad and complex subject to discuss

There are two elements to the answer to your question. What is Capitalism and fair to whom

What is Capitalism? (Simple description in terms of essentials)

People live in societies. However, each individual in that social group is still an independent individual having individual thoughts, ideas, desires and goals in life.I cannot compel another individual to follow my religion

I can talk to them about it, if they are willing to listen,

but in the end its their choice and and ultimately their decision - on what faith to follow

  ·  3년 전

I might follow Christianity while the other might end up becoming an atheist. Hey - your life, your faith, my life, my faith.

Just like how I make my living is my choice, my decision.

do not work for you and I do not expect that you work for me. Hey- your life; support it by your work. My life; I’ll support it by my work.

this society, we need to make sure people can believe what they want, can earn their living the way they want, can succeed or fail based on their decisions.

No one can interfere or stake a claim on another persons spiritual position, economic position, success or failure. When we say ‘no one’ can interfere, we are talking about the Government. The Government cannot pass any law in any form that tell one individual in this society - ‘Hey, it does not matter if you like it or not, we have decided that you are making a good living and succeeding - now you have to help out the people who are not making a good living.

Under Capitalism, the Government cannot take this position

the Government cannot interfere.

How people follow their heart and how people make their living is no one’s business.

his is Capitalism. I am an individual, I live and breathe and I choose to live in society.

However, this means two things. I do not violate another persons right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness and I do not allow the any other person to violate mine. We each live as individuals, work together when we reach an agreement, go our separate ways when we do not. The Government only protects each individual when someone violates these rights’ the Government has no say in how I live and what I do to support my life.

Capitalism is a social system based on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which all property is privately owned.

When I say “capitalism,

Capitalism is a fair society

Socialists and Communists are always against Capitalism, Communists have a concept that ownership of land, capital and industry cannot be owned and controlled by the individual rather by the state government and Socialists have a notion that individuals should not have ownership of land, capital, or industry, but rather the whole community collectively owns and controls property, goods and production. And today I Syeda Abeer Ahsan will prove these perspectives wrong by my cogent debate on Capitalism is a Fair society.

What is Capitalism? In my fair words

Capitalism is an economic system in which trade, industries and business is entirely owned privately without government’s interference.

You have total freedom to live where you want, you have liberty to purchase your own houses, televisions even to aim for business investment, it’s a system where everyone has freedom, consumers are free to choose what they buy, producers are free to produce what they want, workers are free to choose the job they want to pursue. Privatization is encouraged and this leads to efficient, innovative and productive business. The purpose of any trade agreement should be to liberalize trade to the greatest degree possible, in doing so, individuals in the businesses or markets will make up their own minds as to what best suits their interests. We’re used to talking about “the economy”. But the economy is not some kind of entity that can be controlled by any other entity. There are some socialists who seem to think that one individual, or a group of selected people can decide what is best for millions. The only fair trade is “free” trade and this can only be found in Capitalism

If the corner grocer goes out of business because a big grocery store sells better quality products at cheaper prices,

the small grocer

his family and his most loyal customers will rebel against the big grocery.

Capitalism leads to Economic growth. With firms and individuals facing incentives to be innovative and work hard, this creates a climate of innovation and economic expansion. This helps to increase real GDP and lead to improved living standards. This increased wealth, enables a higher standard of living; in theory, everyone can benefit from this increased wealth, and there is a ‘trickle down effect’ from rich to poor.

Is capitalism is a fair society

A more formidable reciprocity challenge involves firmly grasping what has been termed the “third rail” of American politics and making radical changes in our tax code, in the interest of having everyone pay a fair share of the cost for having a fair society. (Some of the many reform options are discussed in my book.) This would also include significant tax increases, despite the strong political opposition to the idea. The fact is that our tax burden is currently the lowest by far of any industrialized nation. In 2012, according to the authoritative CIA World Fact Book, our taxes (including Social Security and Medicare) amounted to 22% of our Gross Domestic Product. This compares with, among others, 40.4% for the United Kingdom, 45.1% for Germany, 46.3% for the Netherlands, 51.3% for Sweden, 51.9% for France, and 55.9% for Denmark. Even Canada ranks well ahead of us at 37.5%. Not surprisingly, every one of these nations has a smaller income disparity and better health statistics and life expectancy than we do.

Capitalism always tend to seek benefits in favor of large transnational corporations to the detriment of investments or social policies that give welfare to the most destitute, unfortunately in my opinion this is caused by the heart of the human being is always seeking and idolizing the money Above all, even from another human being

All great political changes begin with a vision of what the future could be like. As the saying goes, the idea is the father (and mother) of the deed

The vision of a Fair Society that combines equality, equity and reciprocity in every part of our society represents a moral foundation that could undergird a broad, many-faceted agenda of cultural changes and political reforms

The key to achieving this goal will be to build a broad political movement that is dedicated to making it happen.

The key to achieving this goal will be to build a broad political movement that is dedicated to making it happen. We know such a goal is attainable. As a nation, we saw great progress toward fairness during the New Deal era and after World War Two. Today we can point to a number of other, mostly European societies that are much closer to the goal of a fair society.

There are also many precedents in our own history for major political sea changes – the abolitionist movement against slavery in the nineteenth century,

the progressive reformers who reined in the “robber barons” at the turn of the twentieth century, the battle for women’s suffrage in the early decades of the last century, the convulsive struggle for civil rights in the 1960s and, most recently, our breathtaking progress toward gay rights.

These days there are many nodes in our society that are working to catalyze progressive change, includi

including the movements (such as the People Centered Development Forum) inspired by the visionary work of David Korten. As the TV host and commentator Bill Moyers has observed, “The only answer to organized money is organized people.” In other words, our future is up to us.

Fairness is getting what you deserve, not sameness I'm not saying the Capitalism we have in the United States is fair, because it's seriously corrupt and crippled. It is a weird mash between different things, making it quite unfair actually. However, we're discussing these two terminologies in vague terms. By definition of what they really are, Capitalism is more fair. If I work at a restaurant, I don't deserve to earn the same benefits as someone who is worked their butt off to get to the top of a CEO position. Everyone should have equal opportunity, but shouldn't be handed things, or have to share with someone who simply doesn't work hard to get out of their situation. If I'm on social benefits, that means i'm being given free money to sit at home and eat potato chips. Yeah, that's fair...

Yes, of course I am a capitalist. That said I do acknowledge that Socialism is far more fair than capitalism. There's no way to say otherwise as a true capitalist because capitalism is not about hard work it's about smart work; it is having the ambition to be the forerunner in what needs doing versus being the one doing the upkeep.

Capitalism is for Visionaries, but sadly everyone else gets left behind; it is one major failure of Capitalism that I have to admit to.

A lot of misconceptions exist about socialism. The most common one is that lazy people will be given money for doing nothing.

The most common one is that lazy people will be given money for doing nothing. This is absolutely false.

Yes Socialism is much fairer In a good socialist society, it's the society/Government which is the main employer. The employee will be paid in proportion to quality and quantity of the outputs and work. On the contrary, in a 'best' capitalistic structure, it is a single person (or a small group of people) of a firm dictate whom to employ or whom not to. It turns out most often, that the capitalist(s) or their henchmen are poorly qualified than the employee. Also consider share/stock market. Such dunces do no meaningful work but can earn fortunes for life. At the same time the workmen toil hard in a field or in a laboratory/workplace. It's well known that in capitalism some amass monstrously high income and it encourages 'live and let die' attitude. Without certain band of equality (in income, for example), there can be no equal opportunity to all (absolute equality may not be achievable even in a socialist country, though). In other words capitalism, especially of a large scale, is unjustifiable.

True, socialism made some big blunders in the past (but it does not mean capitalism is error-free). But socialism gave several successes too. There is a need to reorganize our economic setup and embrace socialism. The mistakes and blunders etc. of the past must not be repeated. For example, there should be a rule something the United States has (a President can serve for not more than two terms). And the powers of head of a country should also have reasonable limits.


I prefer not to think about that, what other system would impose? Socialism? That is horrible, there is no other way, or it is not possible with these governments.

I don't know if capitalism is bad, but it's better than socialism

The issue of CAPITALISM today is a bit complicated, since this is an economic and social system based on private ownership of the means of production, a generator of wealth and allocation of resources through the market mechanism.

Congratulations to all the winners!

All forms of government are not fair. Some damage more than others, but always benefit a few, is the reality, so is the human, ambitious.

Capitalism is not perfect but the world is better off with it than without it. Just take a look into communist countries and see which people is happier.

Money allows you to hire people you don't know and to be hired by people who don't know you. Without money all transactions would be personal and based in an extended knowledge of the person you are exchanging with (does that person need a hen and does that person need the firewood I offer?).

i love my life no capitalism or communism.

I amam from a developing country , here nearly everything is bad

When corruption in government nothing can be happened for people.

Well, from my own point of view I feel capitalism may not be really fair but depends on how it's structured though!

How can I win 5SBD.

I don't really buy the idea of capitalism due to the effects it brings on to the society.

I think no. Capitalism increases disparity between the poor and the rich.

It is not fair but unfortunately the economy of a country depends a lot on capitalism, you can not waste money to give to the people or make them dependent so that they see you as the savior of a society when the economy of the country comes to the ground and thus works ... never let socialist governments talk because only the politicians benefit and give the people alms of the country's econ
