Capitalism isn't the issue human nature is the issue. People intrinsically make hierarchies in all forms of life and it would be the same under "democratic communism", which would quickly evolve into a totalitarian dictatorship as the most politically skilled rose to the top and consolidated power.
Bruh.... Communism can be used to prevent humans from taking advantage of each other through law. We can create a system where we vote for everything and those who are caught manipulating the system are put in prison for life they should be treated worse than someone who murders.

Believe it or not I think we are headed towards communism regardless of what I say I think it's just moving slowly.

Funny you say capitalism isn't good for anyone as you type on an invention made possible thru capitalism.

What Warren and Bernie and their ilk do is pick on a group that the average person can't relate to and turn them into the monster everyone can be scared of, but you need to look at it as dangerous because wealth is relative. Once they tax the Bill gates of the country and figure out that it isn't enough money to fund their nutty a*s ideas they'll move down the line from billionaires to those with hundreds of millions and make their way down to those making hundreds of thousands. It will never stop because it will never be enough to take care of everyone. Soon they'll be pushing the notion that they need to tax people making $60k a year at the same percentage as a billionaire because it's fair.

I do agree there needs to be better oversight but capitalism isn't the problem, human nature is. So even if you institute full on socialism or communism there will still be issues because you're dealing with humans.

Also, no one that agrees with this concept should be mad or say anything when they hear about an athletes baby moms getting 50k a month in child support or a wife getting half in the divorce, because Warren is proposing the same thing from the same place.
NO!!! The invention was made through the government.... PCs where created by the govt.

There would be no “Bill Gates” without capitalism. Technology has only advanced this fast and available to everyone because of capitalism.
BX wouldn’t be a thing or whatever device your using wouldn’t be available to use or even invented without capitalism and Bill Gates.
I dont think u can prove that, and I'm not sure i believe that only capitalism breeds ingenuity.

Inventions predate capitalism....in fact capitalism is an invention .

Just looked up who cured Malaria and Bill Gates absolutley nothing to do with its cure despite him pumping money to his friends at whatever charity....

China cured Malaria so that money that was spent to help his friends was better spent doing something else.
Ok

this is crazy false

capitalism did not create the internet, let alone computer science

capitalism creates nothing but cartels, monopolies, greed and corruption

the first video games and home computers were invented without incentive or reward, they were created because smart, talented people said "what if?" and "i can"

you can read about it here:

No system, communism or capitalism, prevents humans from taking advantage of each other because people who are politically motivated crave power and will collectivize and manipulate to their advantage. This has happened again and again across all societies and civilizations.

Im not sure where we are headed but i dont think its communism. Its more like some sort of Technocracy with democratic features. I dont know.

Technology could be a big thing to help create a more peaceful society though. With the rise of games and virtual reality that could be used as a tool for people to vent their desires/aggression into rather than real life. With the rise of global wealth a standard basic needs could be given to all which would stabilize discomfort from those who are not in the elite, etc.

fu*k a Bill Gates.....#BernieSanders2020 & if not him #ElizabethWarren2020

We’re coming for our share
I know that Warren and Bernie are about changing the Tax structure to pay for health care. So, when you say "your share" what do you mean? Was it just something to say, or do you mean you will pay lower taxes or do you mean you are going after something else that owed to you?

Nothing can completely eliminate greed but you can create systems that do a better job of limiting it. The main issue is we have Pedophiles like Bill and Melinda Gates who make people think they are philanthropists.

Everything was technically created through the government since it's inception.

Our roads, going to school, the people all together have helped us through the system. Capitalism wouldnt be what it is without government.

We have to choose vote and protest for the kind of government we want. No billionaire did it by themselves and their money is not theirs it's a collection of what the american people have created and that person benefits from it.

Broke n*ggas

I think Billionaires should be fairly taxed however I dont think taxing billionaires into Oblivion is the answer. They should be forced through their companies to add back to economy through jobs and infastructre developments. That way the money is constantly flowing and not just sitting in increasing stock prices. Like if you're company makes X amount you need to be able to provide to X amount of jobs or put X amount of money in city and states development.


You clown broke people but feel entitled to what rich people make......foh

No billionaire has donated more than Bill Gates.

The fact people are coming for his head shows how stupid and uninformed our society is.

You idiot that money isnt being used the way you think it is. Like I explained earlier he didnt help cure malaria even though he donated money to his friends to make him seem like he's doing something of value.

Bill Gates is manipulating you into thinking he's a philanthropist.

everybody wants to tell more successful people how to spend their money cause they're bitter about being too stupid or lazy to be as successful

Bill Gates wakes up every morning and makes the conscious decision to not end world hunger (estimates put the cost at 30 billion to end world hunger).

yeah, that's exactly how it works

All this pocketwatching and so and so should do such and such needs to end.

1st off directly related to the article:

I don’t think he is going to personally endorse ANY politician it’s a lose lose and can have negative side effects for his employees and people indirectly employed by use of his products. These people are just trying to earn a paycheck. So his lack of endorsement doesn’t mean he’s against anyone or for anyone. It’s the best thing for his business and employees.

He’s already known for philanthropy.

Next.

We need to stop pointing the fingers at these guys entrpreneurial ingenuity and spirit and “anything is possible” is what drives America - that’s the American Dream.

We can end all the fingerpointing with (4) things:

1) end corporate welfare

2) end offshore tax havens

3) get money out of politics

4) make education in America free

After those four things are done I’m not hearing no “woe is me” sh*t from no one.

Up until that time we will continue to be r*ped as a society.

Corporations publicize their losses and privatize the profits and families like the Waltons and companies like McDonald’s are the biggest “welfare queens” in the country. They don’t pay living wages and subsidize their work force with public tax money.

If companies paid their fair share of taxes universal healthcare and investing in industries and infrastructure of the future would be simple. Free education and investing in the next generations of great minds would be the biggest benefit to our country and allow us to remain on top.

With free education if you can’t be upwardly mobile that is 100% on you.

Foreign interests in politics should be seen as treason and treated as such.

Up until those four things are done the playing field will continue to be rigged, and up until you moron working class R voters can pull your head out of your a*s and stop voluntarily bending over and taking it up the a*s from the elites under the guise of “pulling yourself up by your boot straps”, smug ignorance and misdirected anger.

All in all - it’s time to start holding the powers that be accountable and stand our ground and reverse the process of serfdom that’s currently in process and been in process since the 80’s.

Immigrants are coming whether you like it or not and will continue. Social services are a fraction of spend compared to corporate welfare. The only way to make things better is hold politicians and corporations accountable to the American people. They should be terrified to leave their mansions. Voting R based on the current administrations stance on immigration is pissing towards incoming wind. It’s a distraction from the real issues and only hurts you in the end.

BERNIE GANG 2020

I’m an entrepreneur before anyone accuses me of whatever. I get my chili and actually benefit under the current policies while majority of you that are gonna bash me don’t.

Stop the hate.

Stop the misdirected frustration.

Automation is coming and many R’s are going to need that “handout” they despise.

I’m gonna be good - are you?
