Capitalism or Socialism; Shouldn’t it be our choice?
But I have three major gripes about socialism.
Third, while I genuinely share many of the same ideals as socialists in that I feel a sense of rage at the injustices in this world, I think the prospect of personal gain is a more powerful driver of co-operation towards mutual benefit than just the homogenised top down imposition of the ‘ideal’ of the general good on us all, reinforced with the heavy handed power of the State to enforce such.
In exchange scenarios both sides benefit – or they would simply not do it.
