Gotcha. Yeah, it's a strange time right now with the transition occuring. I think alot that are from the old school thinking are having a tough time breaking free from the "capitalism is god" mindset and that we will have leaders moving forward that are more in line with Yang and his "socialist" ideologies. I think the biggest change today is not the policies (socialism vs capitalism)....but the people. We are seemingly moving into a less competitive world where I feel like those ideas can fit and work with time.
I guess I shoulda said I don't really visit that forum anymore because that's no megathread lol.

I don't even think yang is that socialist, he just had a primary plank that included dinner socialism

Capitalism is great but the system is clearly broken and has been over run by flat out greed.
I would just work off that and push a little further that capitalism is good and fine.. but, it also inevitably LEADS to greed. We are trying to move towards equity for all as a society.. so how do we do that when capitalism will always lead to someone without equity. It's just the nature of beast..imo. So, it's for sure a system that has led us here and now...but the younger generations just aren't buying it anymore like the old school capitalism, that is. It's not about getting rid of competition (capitalism)..just more about having less of it. JMO on a direction that will ultimately figure itself out with time.

Capitalism is great but the system is clearly broken and has been over run by flat out greed. The gap between the upper and middle class has gotten ridiculous.

As long as people keep voting against there own interest it’s just going to get worse. Some of this stuff is so confusing but then I know why they do it

Capitalism is great and I wish we'd go back to it. The crony capitalism that we now have is a major problem for our future. We have way too much money being spent by the government that's that's going to cronies and enriching them while not giving the tax payers any sort of a decent ROI. We need to clean up the system for its long term health.
