people complain about capitalism when in reality its socialism and government over step that is really screwing us over, amirite?

medical profession for an example, its not capitalism, its monopolized by a very very few corporations heavily regulated and controlled by government ensuring competition is not allowed, thus the few companies that are allowed to sell can charge whatever they want and they know people will pay up or die.

funny part is is socialists think throwing more socialism to the problem will fix it, when in truth thats just adding highly combustible gas to the fire. its socialism that screwed us to begin with. let the free market sort itself out, if the government held the same kind of monopoly over your food as it did over your medical or car insurance youd be out of food too. what we have today is anything but capitalism, its corporatism and thats a form of socialism

except they sell everything we need

@unknowncondition except they sell everything we need

uh yeah? expect a farmer to work for free? truck drivers to work for free? store employees to work for free? sorry bud you have to pay for your food and you need food, if your not paying for it some other family struggling to make ends meet is paying for you to eat free.
do you expect companies to make medical supplies for free? do you expect professors to teach how to become a doctor for free? do you expect doctors to work for free? same thing it COSTS MONEY! when you allow competition though, it encourages fair prices, monopolies encourage ridiculously expensive prices!
you have no clue how things work do you? where are you from? dream land?

do you think when government pays for it it magically becomes free? do you think it magically makes it better? no, your taxes GO UP, now you have a death panel controlled by the government that decides if you life is worth saving or not. NOTHING IN LIFE IS FREE, not even getting out of bed, it costs energy to do that, you cannot do anything on this earth cost free

gee. i'm sure we will build machines that fix everything EXCEPT other machines . Yes I imagine a world were nobody works and everything is done for you. In my imagination I see a future kinda like 1850's southern American but robots instead of slaves.

I'm sorry but you are very confused. Any system that allows 1% of the population to own more than 90% of the population is a failing system. That is not a fair distribution of wealth and only leads to oligarchy.
To allow 1 person to accumulate 175 billion dollars, more than he could spend in 100 lifetimes, while average Americans start their careers buried in massive school debt while others lose their homes to illness is insanity.
Capitalism rewards greed and corruption while stifling development and innovation.
The raps against socialism are distortions of reality. It does not mean the govt controls the means of production. It means the people who work in the factory own the factory and have a say in what to produce, how to produce it and most important what to do with the profits.
It also doesn't ,mean there will be no rich people. It's not about total equality. It's about a fair distribution of wealth. Those who work harder o smarter will receive more but not $350,000 a day while the average worker gets $60,000 a year.

If 100 hungry people order a 100 slice pizza and when it shows up the first guy takes takes 85 slices, not because he's smarter or works harder but just because he can, something is amiss.

I think the base problem is that some people would be tormented with the fact that they are equal to their neighbor
