This issue has been going up for years. Wanted to see everyone's views on these major economics policies.

For years together people have fought and tried to understand which one is better?
Let us discuss it out, here.

  • Sep 23 2012: Could you elaborate on which issues you are referring to?
  • Sep 25 2012: Sharon McCann!!!!!
    Finally, a breath of fresh air that something else can and must be built. You're absolutely correct. Thanks.

    They "act as if", Sharon, because IMO I believe they are so brainwashed.
    The main effect of brainwashing is a dulled ability to reason.
    The second main effect is an impeded ability to act.
    So, even if they woke up enough to reason half-assed correctly they would still be unable to act upon what they finally discover as the real truth.

    Sorry, but I want to add that in my opinion, America's political candidates are virtually all Manchurian Candidates.
    The citizens are largely all Manchurian Citizens. It doesn't bode well.
  • Sep 24 2012: People act as if "capitalism", socialism and communism are systems handed down by some deity. Real and solid as if they were tangible. Truthfully there are no countries which have any one of these economic/governmental systems in their pure form. And NONE of them work forever, no matter how pure. Capitalism in its pure form is all but anarchy. It only functions properly within the confines of both property and contract law. And only if those laws are upheld in concrete terms to EVERYONE. It worked for as long as it did in the US due to the US' legal system. Even when things got out of control, the legal system and the legislative system usually pulled it back in the right direction. But, over the last 30 years a very ugly version of capitalism has taken hold in the US. It is the ugliest side of capitalism along with the ugliest side of socialism. Then they exported it to other countries and were stunned when those countries descended into economic chaos.

    Why does everyone act as if these are our only choices?? They are all inventions of humanity. Invent something new!

    Could be together with
    and also Should be together with
    and so Are together with”, as the Will of God.

    ### Taxes on the Wealthy, so called Buffet Tax will be one of Prior Improvement Systems for the Renovation of Contemporary Capitalism because the Wealth of the Wealthy can't stand without the Wealth of the Less Wealthy. Taxes on the Wealthy, so called Buffet Tax will be one way to recover the relation that the Wealthy and the Less Wealthy, as one of Economic Entities Could be together with and also Should be together with and so Are together with, for Coexistence in Capitalism.



    < Occupy Wall Street( OWS ) > means " Renovation of Capitalism " based on " Proposal - Researching a New Horizon of Faith and Religion for the Present and for the Future "

    " Renovation of Capitalism " could be based on the Relation that every economic entities of every tribe and even a nation Could be together with and also Should be together with and so Are together with on the Earth, in order to take " Prior Improvement " instead of " Post Charity " for the sake of coping with Contemporary Capitalism.



    ### Every Economic Systems and Practices should build up the Relation that every economic entities
    “Could be together with
