Is capitalism fairer than socialism?
#1
If someone works harder they will do better under capitalism...

But if someone has a disability, through no fault of their own, they will do better under socialism...

Which is fairer?

They both have their downsides. Yes, it's harder for people with disabilities to benefit under capitalism, but under socialism there isn't any incentive to work harder if everyone gets paid the same.

Of course, many capitalistic societies (i.e. the US) have tried to fix that problem with gov't subsidies for disabled people.

But lazy people will also do better under socialism. Socialism also removes the 'drive' to succeed and do more. Capitalism however has methods to balance the inequalities in the form of government grants, while socialism is just what it is.

A system with equal opportunity for all is better than a system that limits opportunity for all.

Either or one is bad if taken to extremes.

No political system is the ideal system, because it is always distorted and adjusted to the rulers or the ruling to distort.

As far as I'm concerned, I would much more be a disabled in the US, than in China. I know they aren't the two countries representing the two systems, it's also impossible for a non disabled to think into the place of a disabled, these are just my opinions..

With capitalism you have bronze and gold, majority get bronze while the people receiving gold kissed ass to get there. While with socialism there is no ass kissing to get to the top, there is only silver.
