OP here. We have an honest difference of opinion but let me just say this: I am not rich nor privileged enough to profit off directly from the way the system currently works. I see no logical reason as to why I should support the rich as if their wealth would ever trickle down and benefit me because it hasn’t. In order to see benefits from those gains it is necessary to get rid of loopholes in our tax code that facilitate evasion. 10% of the world’s GDP is stuck in tax evasion, imagine all we could do with that money. Trillions of dollars wasted and parked for the benefit of the few and the detriment of the majority. In that sense I am a democrat, absolutely.

You should support capitalism because it's the only practicable economic system for the modern world.

>> No.18436005

It’s easy to think that when you don’t know better, but we can know better. We can make things better. People thought the same when slavery was around and when feudalism ruled the economy until they came up with something better. Not perfect, but better. We must stop thinking in terms of perfection and start thinking in terms of improvement, you have more in common with me than with Jeff Bezos or Trump, I have more in common with you than I’ll ever have with Elon Musk or Alan Greenspan so we must work due to our common interests and stop fighting over slight differences.

I did propose many things, one of them was erasing loopholes and deductibles for the rich to balance the development of small and medium enterprises.

As I said, don’t aim for perfection but for improvement. Progressively as we get used to the new model of capitalism and people have a better quality of life they will also have more spare time to reflect and think and debate and meet and talk just like you and I are talking right now. Then they will cooperate and potentially come up with tremendous alternatives that can be good for all of us.

They came up with the communist ideology in a time when they didn’t have as much time on their hands as we have now, I never advocated for communism because it is outdated. It doesn’t mean we can’t think of better solutions and that we can’t debate about these things. People came up with capitalism during a time where there was a very awful quality of life yet they managed to cooperate and debate, so now that we have a better quality of life compared to them we should use some of our time to come up with new creative ideas.

In some extent you are correct but no great group of men can lift any weight at all if there’s not a sufficient level of cooperation. Just look at the reluctance my questions were received with when I made this thread, we need to make people talk more and think more.

>Supporting capitalism when you’re not in the 1% is like a black man supporting slavery in the 19th century.

Blacks in slavery had a tremendously high standard of living vs the global average at the time, a literacy rate the continent of Africa didn't reach until the 1960s, had a family retention rate of over 50% vs the ~30% of today, and black slaves in the Americas were generally treated extraordinarily well and weren't subject to anywhere near the levels of violence as those who wound up in the Atlantic and infinitely better than those sold to the Muslims.
