My 2 cents: I won’t deny socialism is unfair. However, capitalism is also unfair, just not as unfair. If we could find another economic system, one that is not unfair, I would welcome that!
People say there is a RACE problem. People say this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY and ONLY into White countries.
People say the only solution to the RACE problem is if ALL and ONLY White countries “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.
But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against White people, Anti-Whites agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.
Watch the critique by HowTheWorldWorks. He debunks the ENTIRE video with ONE fact.
where will the crisis ended? collapse or new birth to soimething unknown but destined for us? maybe you can get some clues in Kabbalah, the ancient wisdom hidden for the solution of this crisis!
No, he doesn’t mention the millions of innocent people slaughtered by capitalist governments in the past 100 years either. What’s your point?
the definition of value in the context you are using it is subjective. As in I may value the life of my dog more than you. Making it a universal claim quite different. What is the value of say lying? or a rock? How about an emotion such as hate? Now you might choose to give them all answers such as lying=7 or something arbitrary like that or you might say lying>stealing, there will always be a circumstance where that is not the case. There is no Universal hierarchy of ‘value’ moral or otherwise.
If you want to call someone 5, look at yourself. You can’t tell the difference between right and wrong or you find them relative which is odd for someone who thinks, frankly and somehow I’ve made a false statement? Quite odd.
Ethics at it’s core or done efficiently based on rational judgements or cognitative dissonance governmened by intelligence. There’s no “oughting” when it comes to being intelligent and that smart people base their ethics or moral conduct on what’s logical and what isn’t. Without value or specifically yet repulsion vs attraction, things like morals and ethics won’t exist regardless.
Well it lead to it, sorry, but speaking of which how is it a false statement? You can’t just claim something as if it were a fact and then not even bother to demonstrate how.
You don’t understand the point. They’re just examples but the point is you make value judgements throughout your whole life because you have an intelligence to determine cognitative dissonance, let alone a sentient consciousness.
right and you may value them as you like. I may choose not to at all and this doesn’t mean that i don’t have a brain or a sense of ethics. I’m not even going in the first because that is just stupid, “people have no brain” what are you 5? Ethics is based on whether or not I ought to ____. Assigning something or someone a value is not necessarily ethical at all. “everything has a value equation” is a false statement, sorry I’m not going any further down this philosophical road with you–study.
Every person does this all the time from choosing spouses to electing representatives so don’t imply to me what reality is, and I could just say the same bullshit to you – what “authority” do you have to tell me I am generally wrong about what people are and how it relates to a thing called an economy? Things have less and more value and in a case like this it is very relevent – it’s more about quality than quantity and you to say I am not making a point is really just naysaying.
I never said anyone other than myself, I am saying people with no brain or ethics do nor that I am saying I do know you, in fact it’s irrelevent. Everything has a value equation, whether you like it or not. You’re not going to tell me how I can’t determine whether someone like MLK is worth more than Hitler I’m just simply putting a price tag on them, frankly.
Nothing gives you authority or the right to say “what the reality is”, you do not have some superior grasp on the cosmos, so just quit it. I’m not wrong to disagree with you that everything has value that can be quantified, I’m not saying its wrong to agree with you either. You can’t cram your beliefs down my throat and then ask me if i agree, and you can’t simply say that things are one way. You are not arguing a point, you are badgering me with your beliefs. Sorry, I stay away from religion.
Implying that anyone, other than yourself, undervalues anything is just plain false. You don’t really know anything about me, so please try to minimize the inferences you make on my behalf because they are wrong and uninformed. I don’t think that everything has to have a economic value as you do. I think there are many things of worth that cannot be quantified in the way that you are attempting. In my opinion assuming that anyone is any one thing, other than yourself, is ridiculous.
This man calls himself a Marxist. He does not, of course, mention the millions of innocent people slaughtered by Marxist governments in the past 100 years.
Great vid, now do one on the failure of communism and why man is inherently greedy so currency must one day either be done away with or handled correctly.
Reduce the scale of banking. Split up the major banks into smaller banks. Miniature failings are easier to fix than huge multinational ones. This also stops the accumulation of wealth. Bring back the high-street bank!
Specifically, things like social responsibility is work and you can even put a price tag on it -MLK’s work is worth more than centrillions of dollars IMO, while people like Adolf Hitler’s isn’t – not even worth a penny. Everything you produce is work and is worth a price if you want to look at it economically and “value” is the fundamental principle of an economy.
Money isn’t the end all be all but the reality is your value is based around money and if you don’t have any value, you’re worth nothing in fact you’ll end up being a taker eventually.
Producing something whether it’s trademark working or advocating for human rights like MLK did is worth value and it makes our world “move,” and money is suppose to reflect on it but thanks to shysters and silly people it’s hard to determine what’s valueable and what isn’t economically.
I wasn’t talking about your circumstance, but hey we’ll see about that when 75% of your income being taken away by either greedy lazy owners and a deficit spending government. “They’re” as in some owners, unions, people in general, and government have no entitlement to commit theft. I will assume you misinterpreted me and what’s foolish is you really underestimate your life and anyone else’s in the matter on planet Earth.
I’m really haven’t implied that I’m ok with having my labour devalued at all, and feel quite the opposite thanks. Implying that anyone is “basically saying they’re not entitled to what they worked for” is simply foolish, no one would accept that this is their veiw-why try to pin it on me or anyone else. What I am and will always advocate is that not everyone see`s labor as the be all end all that you do. Some people value things like `social responsibly` you know…Happiness.
RON PAUL R3VOLUTION.
My point was you may as well have it, especially when it deals with poor people working and a government or any elite entity who doesn’t “care” about poor people and would rather enslave you and those impoverish people for their elite buddies and not work for their expenses. There’s your problem, not simply because people get to keep everything they worked for.
We’re specifically talking about poor capitalists not wealthy welfare pigs who pretend they worked hard for something.
I never said I am defending accepted practises of capitalism, the problem in context of that is hording in general and dumping it in debt, especially when you’re talking about billions of dollars.
Please, that’s why you give poor workers their full profit (capitalism) but tell that one to the poor capitalist or poor workers, especially in poor countries where the get sucked dry by the government, wealthy fascists, and other people and people like yourself are basically saying they’re not entitled to what they worked for and they’ll end up being impoverish also making your point meaningless.
Some government services are useless. But defending the current practices of capitalism is equally useless. You need to think of things on larger scale, the welfare of the world, the welfare of the most impoverished. Corporations are much more free to influence states under the current system. Capitalism as is has failed, it is yet to be seen as a success in my eyes.I can see from an economic prospective you think it great.There are other perspectives, many of which do not place economy as high.
The borrowers in general and unaccountable and fruadster lenders and shareholders like the bankers and some wealthy people owe people who work and produced that money but instead we’re doing the opposite by spending money on useless bonds and assets idiots bought that we’re forced to pay as our debt and generally spending money we don’t eccentially have no more.
3 comments are too much to read and you lecture me on grammar. LOL. I’m not getting “lost” in anything because one I know what I am talking about it seems and you either can’t understand something simple like that or you don’t have an argument. The only person trapped in their verbosity is yourself spout cliché bullshit that has been argued with before. I’m talking about the people that borrowed and commited theft.
You talk too much & get lost in your own verbosity. All the trillions & billions of dollars/euros etc. that we owe. To whom do we owe them? can you at least answer that?
Corporations or anyone else in the matter simply stealing money and forcing people to pay their debt whether they use a form of government or not isn’t capitalism. And it’s stupid to blame corporations with debt issues when it’s also the government doing the same, especially a government who caters to assholes like that. You talk about cuts, you have to realize some government services are useless and the fact that they’re wasting YOUR money also. Who’s welfare are you talking about, silly?
It’s fake entitlements, reckless loaning, and unaccountable spending not simply because you work or created a business.
You want to stop debt, enforce efficient financial accountability by stoping fraud, take the useless interest rate off, pay the principle back or bankrupt the country, cease reckless spending, and only this time stop taking other people’s money and pay for whatever by yourself which is an example of capitalism.
What the Hell is the first bloodless revolution? Things like corrupted corporatocracy is 1 factor and speaking about debt, it is also stupid poor people borrowing what they can’t pay back and spending wastefully and unaccountably and that money doesn’t only come from the wealthy, especially those who earned it, it eccentially comes from tax payers who produce and you have these lazy, greedy elite assholes forcing other people to pay the debt which they and poor people borrowing made.
Cont- For a start, stop dwelling on corporation as enigma, simply address to it for what it is: PREDATORY CAPITALISM. Your running around in circles is for headless chickens. Gain self-esteem by means of self-criticism. I value your effort.
Our corporatocracy is imposing its fraud on us=an economy that only works for the wealthiest. Imposes on all countries & all ppl strangulation by debt
1)Government services’ cuts destroying citizens welfare
2)Economic collapse in 1st world
3)Famine disease war in 3rd world
SOLUTION: no one should pay his/her debts any more, at all whatsoever. Smash the banksters & start the 1st bloodless revolution in human history. Over to you, my friend, what solution do you suggest?
Because you don’t understand a simple arguement, it isn’t grammar it’s quite clear enough so the problem is you. Quit red herring and nitpicking the point. Only in the context you’re putting it in. I’ll put it this way, they’re not people so what? What does a thing have anything to do with corporates specifically? I’ve stressed that quite enough.
Means nothing is pretty strong, to you it means nothing maybe but that’s not the same as has no meaning- because clearly saying a corporation is not a person is quite intelligible. I’ve never stated any lack of understanding, you are making that inference about me. There is clearly a difference in opinion here, which I am comfortable with. I was simply saying: check your grammar, you make less sense with such poor spelling and structure because its not very clear.
Also, you can’t answer a simple question which is more hypocritical. People like “you” are the people that made this economy as it is so if you’re going to critque someone do it properly because this bullshit can be said to you. Since your reading sucks and can’t understand simple phrases being discussed, I’ll ask again, what economic system do you want just to make the discussion clear. Remember, it is stupidity like yours is the reason why schmucks have power and you’re no different.
No, you’re reading and comprehendsion skills is to what has been put forth sucks, you hypocritical retard, you just don’t like it because you’re biased and you’ll do anything to distract the point like all shills. It’s a simple arguement and you’re just naysaying. I generally know what’s going on, why are you saying I don’t because you don’t like it? You’re not demonstrating my flaw but just condescend and doublespeak.
Until you remain cought up in pinpointing details of no importance, you will also lack a syntetic view of what this is all about. Your upward analytical mobility comes from learning to go straight to the point of what really matters. Power groups run the show only until confused ppl like you allow them. Be concise. Your grammar sucks, others have complained about your lack of clarity. Welcome to the learning curve.
Proof that though Communism failed abjectly in the 20th century, the Socialist critique of Capitalism is still relevant.
Who cares if the “state” doesn’t control it or does, in fact many so-called states are no better because the states are controlled by the same type of people who control many corporations. I am suggesting consumers and producers doing it rather than the state itself and we should do it. You and I don’t have to be apart of any state to call bullshit on the wrong doings in the economy, let alone the 2-party system.
Sentences can also be more than several words and as long as they don’t imply a transition of subject which this doesn’t because they’re is no need to because it is the entire subject, generally speaking. This coming from someone who can`t use the word corporate instead of corporations and spelled grammar incorrectly, that`s funny.
No, what you need to re-read is you vapid, incoherent word choice and you lack of understanding of a simple argument. Republics and democracy with 7 billions people on the planet is complicted oh my… Just because you don’t understand doesn’t mean the other person is always at fault.
Yes you did take it out of context because I am talking about the subject whether I agree with you or not and saying that they`re not “people” means nothing which is also the point.
reread your response and try to slow down and articulate. Your grammer and your clarity are lacking. Is that really all one long sentence? I didn’t take anything out of context, you suggested that corporations are held accountable through people that run them, I suggested that no one state is capable of this. if anyone is taking anything out of context, not mention out of the realm of intelligablity due to your grammer, its you.
