Quote from: DigitalSoul on December 07, 2013, 12:29:20 amShek, I believe we need more people that think like you out there in the world.Winkio, I both agree and disagree. I think a barter system could work, though it would need some SERIOUS work done to it.Praelium, I know the feeling. I hate to even have to think about economics, because as it is, I work two jobs and still don't make enough to live properly off of.Heretic, no, those words shouldn't even be in the same sentence, unless describing what our monetary system is NOT.

Quote from: ForeverZer0 on December 12, 2013, 06:28:57 pmI think that it is a system that will not work. "Greed" is an inevitable part of humanity, and any system that is based on the virtue of human beings and could be corrupted so easily by it is doomed to fail.
Quote from: ForeverZer0 on December 12, 2013, 11:04:43 pmCapitalism is without refute the most successful system humanity has ever seen. Period.
Quote from: ForeverZer0 on December 12, 2013, 11:04:43 pmHuman beings are flawed, therefore a system that is all about equality and selflessness will always fail.
Quote from: ForeverZer0 on December 12, 2013, 11:04:43 pmHuman beings are not selfless, and as far as "deserving of money", not equal in the slightest degree.
Quote from: ForeverZer0 on December 12, 2013, 11:04:43 pmThe answers an history to prove it are available for all to see, and yet it is still ignored, so nothing I say here will matter, and people will just continue to believe what they believe. Its as pointless as arguing religion.
Quote from: Shek on December 13, 2013, 12:53:03 amI don't want to be disrespectful and if you're frustrated by this debate I don't want to goad you on.
QuoteMillions of people work, and plan just as hard as they do, and never get rich, and it's because of the reality of their circumstances
Quote from: ForeverZer0 on December 13, 2013, 01:41:46 amNo disrespect is taken, I respect everyone's right to their own opinion. I just mean I don't want to get deeply involved trying to convince anyone or engage in a debate about the matter. When it comes to politics and religion, no one ever budges on their original belief, so "why bother?" is my opinion of them anymore. I don't see the sense of wasting my mental energy and nerves in an attempt to be heard by deaf ears, and I am no different. I appreciate your intelligent and respectful response, I realize that my opinion is not the common one, but I will admit right now, due to my own personal life experience, my own insights on humanity, and what I believe to be commonsense, I will not change my mind on the matter. This is one particular subject that I will be truly close-minded on, and I am 100% sure in my own mind that my opinion is the correct one. I do have my reasons, I just choose not to waste my time nor that of others explaining them, so I agree to disagree and let it end at that for myself.
