I am for a combination of socialism and entrepenuership, taken the best from each to create a better hybrid that allows for individual economic growth without over industrialist and coporate greed, a system that provides basic human necessities for the citizenry.

Okay, I know, I maybe a dreamer- but I'm not the only one

This has been a long time argument and has been at war since both types of economics have been established. Personally, people bettering themselves through hard work and determination will land them to a higher standard of living, not necessarily more income or abundance of material, but just higher standards of living. So what is your argument?

If we are going to look at it using the economic perspective, it is very clear that capitalism provides a more assuring and fluid economy I can tell in three arguments:

1.) Capitalism is a free-market system which means that it encourages everyone to freely enter and exit the market without any harming or inflicting a huge impact on the country's production unlike the Communist system wherein the investors or stockholders are very important since they are the primary source of the goods which will be distributed "equally" to the people and if in any case they would exit the market, it will have a huge impact on the over-all production of goods and services to sustain the government.

2.) Capitalism encourages a business-oriented society, wherein everyone who can provide goods and services are welcome to try and gain profit, this is very much important since the more companies enter the market, it can decrease the rate of unemployment in a country and generate a higher profit for the government.

3.) Lastly, there is no such thing as a full-Communist country in the status quo, why? because it is very hard to manage a market system of this type wherein the people just slack off waiting their necessities to be given and they are entirely dependent on the investors and stockholders which at any given time could exit the market and could harm the economy.

This whole debate is invalid because capitalism is a style of economy while communism is more of a style of government. I think a proper debate would be capitalism vs. socialism OR communism vs. democracy. Of course people would vote for capitalism due to our country's heavy fear for anything communist, even in a post-modern world.

You have a good dream, bro. :) I would prefer to have such government like that, or at least, related to that. Do not just dream, make a move. ;)

I am not a true communist in the way most people would assume, most would call me a capitalist. However, if you look at this as two extremes, total capitalism and total communism I am closer to communism. I don't think everybody is exactly equal, but I'd prefer that to do-or-die capitalism.

Communism is too broad an umberella term to argue easily, but a broad deffence of socialism and it's underlying premises is simple enough.
We assume all men to be born with equil deserving. However the circumstance of their birth (to which parents, the schools around them, etc) and the fact that most are born into some kind of capitalist economy forces their hand in choices. Thus people are less free, the equality they deserve is not realised.

So we remove the capitalist paradigm, releasing the coersion and oppertunity costs, and design a world where such circumstance innocuous. Socialist theory is based on this. The theory is convincing, no?
