    Capitalism that doesn't evolve and is fixed, possibly. Then again, those who have unrealistic expectations of what they expect government to do for societies ills can be just as bad or worse.

    They do say that no empire ever lasts.

    Everyone starts off struggling to keep alive. They spend all their waking time just trying to find enough food to live.

    Then as time passes they start to find ways to get food more easily. They invent farming, for instance.

    Eventually, some of the people, manage to get some freedom and leisure time. They look round for something to fill that time. They pontificate on what might be good and they campaign to make more people think like themselves.

    But when they actually try it out they realise their mistakes. That generally happens too late. Everything that elevated them to their previous position has been closed, shut down, banned, cleared away and forgotten.

    Then the empire fails.

    If capitalism were fair and did not create insane income disparity, nobody would become socialist. So in that sense yes

    Given that socialism is about elevating the proletariat to the ruling class and the proletariat as a class did not exist before capitalism, yes. Also what socialistpb said.

    Socialism only comes in to steal what capitalism made. Socialism is a degenerate thief.

    The movement for Socialism (a classless stateless society based on common ownership and production for use) could not begin until capitalism had greatly increased the productive forces and created a class of wage-workers. So in that sense, yes.

    Since when is a solution to problems the cause of them? This can only be a Liberals' mindset.

    Democracy and capitalism, yes. Capitalism to provide the workplace. Democracy for... well... the democracy you'd put into said workplace.

    No. The Pilgrims tried socialism then many starved because some people refused to work, they switched to capitalism and thrived.

    • It's always funny how contards just make up whatever idiocy first pops into their head and their NPC audience mindlessly up votes it
