i thought as you were communist.
thats sounds good.
I'm not a communist. Whilst the communist system seems like a good idea, it is flawed and can only work in a dictatorship. It is also terrible for the economy. I believe that we should keep the capitalist framework but redistribute the money more fairly.
you are funny too mr shine.
It was just in spirit of the mood, no harm meant your way. You're funny, and by no means bad. Also, I'd love to write books someday
haha. you know he insulted me by writing a poem on me after i was banned yesterday.
Mr.Shine, do you write satire books? I'd love to read something by you!
@conservatives and liberals.
dont listen to this guy ryanwakefield. he is a f***ing communist.
Historybuff "To simplify things, let's split everyone into two groups: workers and business owners." -Ryan, one of your socialists.
so I was telling him how it works using businesses owners and workers. if you have a problem, tell Ryan.
What decides the wealth is improperly distributed? Perhaps we have decided a standard for living but the homeless, the destitute, the foolish, what entitles them to more money than they have right now. The rich? The rich are champions, they invented the wealth they are sitting on! The lucky few buy the Rich's product and the average man gets into debt to have it. What more is there to understand? Okay, here is a better question, what is even wealth distribution? Is it taking what the rich don't need? Well, tons of people don't need 2 kidneys to survive, so maybe we should take one. An extreme example, I admit, but a tiny portion isn't where it ends, I figure, and the quotas will be extended to reach into less fortunate pockets until we return to square one, that or a tidbit that won't fix the problem of unfortunate and empoverished individuals is acquired.
Alright, I'll return to the opportunity. How is the wealth distribution unfair? It's uneven, I'll admit. It can have a low end that kills people, I admit.The poor die, I admit. But wealth is not fixed. A new technology, a cost effective social program that saves lives, something that doesn't change the price or amount of a dollar, that would do something. Change the hands of who holds the money, or create a simple tax program, and the money goes back into the pockets that it tried to sneak into. They would just sneak right out, not because they are rich, but because it would not stand. We can't hold people to different standards if they are able, because what people choose to do, is up to them. No immediate threat means not a murderer.
Alex i dont understand why you cannot separate the rich from business. they are not the same thing. you constantly make this mistake.
you are against business. must I tell you why?
I'm not against business, just unfair wealth distribution
first of all, business owners do work, and many were workers before they were business owners.
now business owners do business. are you against business? it seems so.
also the business owners pay more for stuff from other businesses.
To simplify things, let's split everyone into two groups: workers and business owners. The workers produce products for the business owners in return for a wage, the businessmen then sell the products to workers for more than they are paying the workers that made it. This means money is constantly going from the workers to the business owners. Forget trickle down economy, that's a trickle up economy.
no. it institutionalizes some of the worst traits of humanity. that's why it is the government's job to regulate them and keep them in check.
it allows anyone to become rich and get richer, it allows the hardworking to be successful. it leaves the lazy freeloaders on the street.
