Why I hate capitalism
Czech Republic Wer_ 
The only reason capitalism works is because it takes advantage or people's mistakes. -Corruption -Greed -Taxes, taxes, taxes -Fees for everything -No government help -People in depts, bad morale -Mandatory nonstate organizations Help

Sweden isn't socialist, it is a mix. Kinda high taxes, a lot of freedom, and a lot of free stuff from the state.
2019-01-29 17:51
china has basically no taxation on income. (3% if i remember correctly) for example.
2019-01-29 10:44
It's progressive tax rate like in most countries, 3% is minimum to 45%. "Tax in China is levied at a progressive rate, ranging from three percent for monthly taxable incomes of RMB 1,500 (US$240) or less, to 45 percent for taxable incomes greater than RMB 80,000 (US$12,725)."

all of europe is capitalist. they have some social services, but that doesnt make them socialist. if europe was actually socialist, amerika wouldve invaded them already, or at the very least slapped them with sanctions like the do north korea.

No socialistic country at the moment. Red flag or title means only red flag and title. Most part of people don't know the theory.

North Korea also practices limited capitalism. There are stores that sell things for money. They actually take RMB, and Euros. Some of the stuff they sell are not cheap either. A suit will run you around $100 which is more than what you might pay at walmart

Still, you will realize as you grow up that you can’t do anything about it and might as well just get what you can. That’s what being human is all about and guess what? You were lucky enough to be born at a time where it has become very unlikely for you to be tortured to death or dying from an unstopable plague. Make your time on this Earth worth it, don’t spend it crying about bullshit. Be thankful and have fun before it’s too late.

“Positive change” Call me a pessimist but 99.99 % of people who want to make the world better have an extremely marginal effect. However, it doesn’t mean I was advocating being a total ass, just don’t feel absolutely obligated to change the world, because you can’t. If you believe you can... welcome to try but you will most likely be disappointed

We should all thank the West for international development, for a greater quality of life, and that this is all down to Capitalism. Even though many of the genuine benefits experienced by people around the world come from Socialist institutions. Countries with better healthcare have a partially or fully government subsidized healthcare system (see: America is a first world country with abysmal healthcare). Worker's rights, the eight hour day, come from Socialism. And when those rights have been revoked, it is due to Capitalist intervention, seeking profit.

In capitalism, people must have more than one job in order to survive (usually one full-time job and one part-time) thus not enjoying the live as much. In socialism people live well from one job despite working from 8-4

The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

Capitalism is by far the best system for dehumanizing population. Poeple who spend whole life in rat race for something that ewentually becomes nothing, focusing only on ME and fortgetting about surrounding and closiest ones. The worst thing is if you're not part of the system yor're margin, living trash. I guess only thing you can do is to last in this, and don't loose your self too much in it. And hey!

you ever notice how almost all capitalist countries have drug problems, and almost none of the comunist ones did? comunist countries never glorify drugs, or partying. capitalist ones do. so if you lost your loved ones to drugs, then i doubt you will really think capitalism works. capitalism works if youre a parasite, not for everyone else. for anyone who beleives that people are born greedy, theyre wrong. the greedy are in the minority. if we were all greedy, nothing would ever get done because id just take things from you that didnt belong to me. people would constantly be stealing from one another instead of working. capitalism does bring out the worst in people, but that doesnt mean people are inherently greedy, or selfish. there are dozens of volunteers who work at a nearby hospital, and they are not in it for the money, and actually alot of the "real employees" at the hospital are much less effective and helpful when compared to the volunteers. if we were all selfish, then we would never even bother raising our own kids, and the human race would die out. humans have gotten where we've gotten based on cooperation, something emphasized in comunism, not greedy, and selfishness. in fact, we can argue that greed, and selfishness is an obstruction to human development, because if we're all greedy, and selfish, then we would never want to share knowledge, but civilization is built on other peoples knowledge, knowledge that they shared. if the guy who invented math refused to teach it to anyone unless he was given a $1 million, and everyone thought like that, then imagine how limited our knowledge would be. heck, if the chinese never showed the white man gun powder, europe would still be in the dark ages. nevermind the fact that europeans got most of their scientific and mathematical knowledge from the arabs, most likely for free. now the white man built up their little empire, and want to put "intellectual property" holds on everything, and want to hold up the development of man kind. it's just so ridiculous how capitalism has gotten that apple corporation wants to copyright the picture of an apple. how ridiculous is that honestly? if i make a company called orange, i am going to restrict anyone from using a drawing of an orange. capitalism has drained the humanity out of all of us. one thing i forgot to mention was the shallowness of capitalism. in capitalism, women are taught, and trained like animals to value themselves based on how they look, and what they wear. actually some men are obsessed with clothes too, and value themselves based on that. i saw one video of a guy who was bragging about wearing polo shirts, but honestly, what grown man cares about that kind of stuff. it's just stupid. and just as stupid is how a woman has to wear make up, and jewlry just to feel beautiful. in comunism, women are just beautiful being themselves. no hair dying, no nail polish, just natural. and thats one thing i hate about capitalism is how phony people have to be. look at these resumes of blokes coming from capitalism countries. it just looks like a page of complete bulshet. sometimes you look at these resumes and you have no idea what the guy can do, or what his job even is because its filled with deception designed to make a person look more competent than he really is. its just a system built off of deception. i mean bloody hell, is there anything real about capitalism? you look at some of these chaps coming from capitalist countries, and the first thing they do is lie to get girls to like them. they pretend like they have money, have a good job, or drive a nice car just to be liked. some of them even have to get on steroids. you got black women in capitalist countries who put all kinds of poisonous chemicals on their hair just so they can straighten their hair. how sad is that to have someone like you for those things, and not for who you really are. capitalists always tell you to be yourself, but thats the last thing you can be because no one will accept you for it.

2019-01-29 18:31
Well then you should know (which I have no idea how you don't) your employer pays that stuff for you and you get lower salary because of that

It's taxes from government in Latvia. In what way it's enforced by capitalism in Czech?
2019-01-29 19:01
Mainly medical insurance (or million other insurance companies) and social security. The problem with social safety or walfare is that it doesn't even work properly, those who should get help from the state don't and those who shouldnt get.
2019-01-29 19:10
Yes, but that's not capitalism, but government setting up it as mandatory tax. If it wasn't for that then insurance companies would have no way to force people to pay for their services.
2019-01-29 19:15
Then why is it not own by the government
2019-01-29 19:22
Because that's as far as government can go, there are rules set that keeps them in place. Wasn't for that they'd be running stuff like straigth from a horror movie.

Like greed doesn't exist in other systems. The elite was so not greedy during the soviet era....
2019-01-29 11:48
Well at least it works

sure it does buddy

well, this is why you should hate capitalism. landlords keeping your deposit. pharmaceuticals poisoning you with meds that you dont need. people not trusting each other because theyre afraid of being scammed. crime in general. war. most wars are fought over resources, which is directly tied to capitalists, and capitalism. division. capitalism divides people. most people who have never lived under comunism dont know this, but capitalist tend to divide people, based on race, based on social class, whatever. comunism teaches you solidarity, something that you cant really find in capitalism. violence. if you look at movies from capitalist countries, they are almost all violent. but if you watch some movies from comunist countries, at least the ones in the past, there generally isnt much violence. also if you ever visit the doctor at a capitalist countries, they generally dont try to treat your illness. instead, their first reaction is to make money for the pharmaceuticals and prescribe you with a whole bunch of meds. one thing ive noticed also is how capitalism rewards evil people. all the bad people you went to high school with probably ended up with good jobs, and alot of money. under capitalism, people are also alienated from one another. i talked to an elderly chinese man who lived under comunism, and he said that 6 guys who didnt even know you would carry you to the hospital if you were sick. however, since china became capitalist, people were much less likely to lift a finger to help their fellow man. other things that bother me about capitalism is how deceptive business are. so i go on the yellow pages, and look for gyms. this "business" shows up under the listings of gyms, but it actually isnt really a gym. they got exercise bikes, and treadmills, but no weights, or machines with weights. it's a studio that teaches you how to work out. they teach classes of 15 with 1 instructor, but here's the problem. when you call up, they dont tell you how much it costs. instead they force you to make an appointment. when you show up, they bombard you with a whole bunch of marketing crap, and waste 2hrs of your time. only to tell you that it costs $300 a month, and you can only go for 2 times a week. they cost over 5 times more than the state run gym. that and they REQUIRE a credit card. this is so they can impose recuring charges on you without your permission. this is a big problem with capitalism. businesses are given the right to place recurring charges on your credit card. so many people complain online about how these "people search" websites make recurring charges against customers without their permission. again, the government could care less about you, and protects businesses. if you charged the credit card of someone else, youd get locked up, so why are businesses given carte blanche? i also dont like how under capitalism, governments protect businesses. for example, a business can place a lien against your house, for ANY reason, and you wont be able to sell it. however, if a business cheated you, you wouldnt be allowed to place a lien against them. the same thing happens if you buy something that was defective from a store. you cant call the cops on them. you can only sue them. but if you took something from a store, even for $1, they can call the cops, and you get locked up. well, other disgusting things about capitalism of course includes how these rich frat boys are allowed to go out and break the law. im sure many of you see it. if it were any of us doing the same thing, we'd be in prison. capitalism likes to associate itself with demokracy, but its the farthest thing from it. how about this? dont you find it disturbing that soccer players are getting paid millions of dollars a year while there are people who are starving? yep. thats capitalism. i mean honestly, what on earth has tiger woods ever done for man kind that is worth the millions that he earns? let's not forget about sweat shops. another capitalist product that enables evil people to profit off of the weak.

1. non unique, corruption occurs in every government/economic system. 2. non unique, its not the system thats greedy, its people, so in any system, greed will exist. 3. you contradict yourself saying no government help but also no taxes. 4.look to # 3 5. look to #3 6. People are in debt in any system, poverty can't be taken away. 7. Nonstate organizations good to check back on corruption of govt mentioned in #1

How is capitalism taxation???
2019-01-29 17:36
You almost described socialism...
2019-01-29 17:46
What kind of system should we live by?
2019-01-29 19:02
-Corruption: This will happen no matter what type of government you have -Greed: Goes hand in hand with corruption -Taxes, taxes, taxes: Required for a stable, safe, and developed society -Fees for everything: Has nothing to do with capitalism -No government help: Take a look at where you would be without taxes and what the federal, state, and local governments provide to your community -People in debt, bad morale: Capitalism allows people to literally do whatever they want in life as long as they're willing to fight for it, work for it, and commit to it. There is a large wealth/wage imbalance within capitalistic states, but that motivation is what drives entrepreneurship, innovation, and a general strive to be better to yourself and your family. The minute you realize you're not owed anything, you should also realize that it's up to you to pave your future. Stop being so lazy and entitled. -Mandatory non-state organizations: ????

lol taxes arent capitalist moron real reasons on why you have capitalism: you are a lasy loser jealous of other peoples success
2019-02-16 19:26
The world has moved beyond capitalism/socialism. The core problem is greed. The relevant discussion to have is whether that is part of human nature, or if it's reinforced behavior. I personally believe people are competitive (gotta decide who gets which female, after all) but that that competitive spirit can be harnessed in better ways than to have us compete for natural resources. I've played games my whole life. I'm very competitive inside the rules of the game. But outside of the game, I can treat other people with love and respect. I have no desire to be more or better than them. If I can feel that way, so can others and I'm sure many do. Those who are greedy and competitive in real life have, in my opinion, been taught that behavior. We are very malleable creatures, especially in childhood. We can be a lot better than we are right now. Our social structure and institutions force us to be greedy and selfish.

-Corruption you literally remove all market from the government -Greed no greed if everyone that works isn't being fined by the government and their income is based on their work -Taxes, taxes, taxes capitalism literally takes (or should take, cuz capitalistic countries don't exist nowadays) about 3% of your cash compared to socialistic 40-60% -Fees for everything i mean you have your cash for yourself and you can pay for the things you want and not pay for the things you don't want (suddenly you wake up with the double the money you've got in socialism) -No government help very good. government should grant you army and police and a little of administration. that's it. one dollar in the budget equals $1.4 of lost money (because ppl know better what they want to buy than the government) -People in depts, bad morale how's socialism fighting with that? by taxing the ppl that work hard and giving this money to people that sit on their asses in front of their tv? that's making bad morale!!! -Mandatory nonstate organizations if you mean charity orgs, there shouldn't be any of these from controlled by state. private charities are more efficient and you can actually decide what or who do you want to support may i also tell you that peoples republic of china is more capitalistic than usa so if you're gaining your info from usa, change the direction you're looking
