Thoughts on this back and forth. Do we have any anti capitalists on NT?

The word socialism has been so warped by the repugnican party that I'm not sure where I stand anymore. I support a majority of "socialist" programs in this county and I am pro universal healthcare. But I also support capitalism as a concept.

i feel like this. Before you even speak to someone on the matter you have to establish what socialism, capitalism etc. even means.

Bingo. Because there are capitalist nations like Germany, every Scandanavian country and Canada that provide their citizens with benefits that would be considered socialist by Ken and Karen from Mississippi.

Repugnicans also have no trouble with using my taxes to provide socialist benefits for the rich and our exorbitant military budget.

Killer Mike got his card pulled & looks wild funny in the light since last year. I don't think I respect him anymore, so I am going to blindly side w/ Noname.

And yes, I am capitilist pig, but that's due to circumstance. I prefer socialism and am one in a social lvl.

How do you cope being an anticapitalist in a capitalist society?
It’s trash. I travel extensively, and the master plan is to be up and out of here for good, sooner than later. ‘Escaping’ in some form or fashion is the only way, for me. With this pandemic, we see that not even money can save you when the shh really hits the fan.

If you truly preferred socialism then why are you a capitalist pig? One could assume you prefer capitalism if you countinue to knowingly indulge yourself in it?

Who's paying for your travels? Who's paying for your exit plan? Using capitalism to escape capitalism?

I’ll bite. You play with the cards dealt to you.
This is not so neatly packaged chaos, here. At the end of the day we are all pretending like **** is cool and it’s not.

A lot of us have known but to those that didn’t, the entire system was exposed in real time for all to see within the last few years. Whoever is still sleep chooses to be sleep IMO. Especially black people.

Does one play the cards they are dealt because there is no alternative? Or because its convenient and pleasing to do so? The path of least resistance so to speak.

I cant say I disagree with what you said. I just find that when discussing capitalism, those opposed usually do not realize what they would need to sacrifice to completely do away with capitalism. They do not see the benefits and only focus on the negatives.

So you’re ignoring the debate and going with NoName just because ?

Are some black ppl really foolish enough to think if America was socialist or communist they wouldn't still be deprived of opportunities and oppressed?

Apparently black anti capitalists like No Name seem to believe so. As if their racism couldn’t exist under a different economic system.

She strikes me as what we like to call people as smart dumb ******
