People complain about socialism leading to the destruction of entire nations and starvation of their entire populations, often leading to genocide and otherwise being completely impractical.

Capitalism, however, has obviously the real problem we should be focusing our efforts on removing from society completely. From rapid technology development to jobs to efficient, new ideas, capitalism has imposed greed and sin upon humanity since Adam Smith first wrote his famous inquiry, “The Wealth of Nations.”

While many will argue that there are many tangible benefits capitalism has brought the world, communism offers a more abstract and the wishful thinking outlook toward the future. While capitalism has succeeded in theory and in practice, socialism hasn’t had a chance to be executed properly in America (yet)!

Just imagine a world in which New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s Green New Deal was being practiced by the entire country: no farting cows, no carbon emissions, no cars or planes. A green dream!

While Capitalism might “save lives,” “improve general quality of life,” and present people with “opportunities to express themselves” in the “free market,” it is also led to many problems. Take a look at some of the worst below. (RELATED: Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says Capitalism Will ‘Not Always Exist’)
