I don't think that it is Capitalism that isn't working, it's that many western nations, the U.S. especially, haven't abandoned predatory Capitalism and hyper-materialism. Countries like Norway and Sweden still have free enterprise, Capitalism, and private business and they're the happiest people on the planet. It's also that Americans are afraid of "Socialism" to the point that they refuse to fund any programs that will help their poorer countrymen.

If Communism took collectivism the wrong way, Capitalism took individualism the wrong way.

We need to exist as individuals and as part of a collective!

Hey :) What about this - the ppl from the debt houses would help with restorations and equipments of these vacant homes for those of your neighbours who do not have homes - and becouse of such great help for the state and for local society they would get elimination of thier debts? What say you? If I was politician I would like to see it done.

Yeap, it is socialism and planned economy. You know, with firefighting service, mass levee building, shelter at public cost.
All of that pretty expensive, so you should nationalize your banking system, mineral resources, and defense industry. I believe military won't hold anything against their emancipation from merchants of death.

Except none of that shit will ever fly in any capitalist country today.

> with firefighting service, mass levee building, shelter at public cost

This already exists in most western societies, all of whom are capitalist.

> so you should nationalize your banking system, mineral resources, and defense industry.

Yes, let's try and take all the money, resources, and guns from the people who manage the supply of money, resources, and guns. No way this will backfire whatsoever. Besides, almost all of western society supports capitalism in some way, shape, or form (with you being an obvious exception). As a system, it relies on the natural desire of humans to compete for resources. Meanwhile, almost everything else (Communism, anarchism, even trickle-down economics) requires that humans will all just join hands and start singing Kumbaya, which they won't. And considering the track record of communism on a large scale, I doubt many people would comply.

> I beleive military won't hold anything against their emancipation from merchants of death.

You do know that the US military is composed entirely of patriotic volunteers who fully know that they're being trained to kill, right?

Proletarium are wage you with money, guns and resources, not the bankers and oligarchs. Western countries are socialistic states with planned economy, which is populated mostly with leftists of all sorts, that's why you're richer than right-winged Russia, or ultra-right Africa - because you want to be wealthy, which means to be left.
US army is the private security organization, which employers are mostly immigrants who hate amerifats, but still if somebody will let them use military doctrine wrote by them, not by oligarchs, he will became their fuhrer.

These problems are happening because politicians are introducing socialist principles into an otherwise Capitalist Economy. It's mixing oil with water of course it's not working.

Those empty homes you can blame on our government-created housing bubble, which only occured because government forced banks to lend loans to people to buy houses they could not afford, and it promised to soak up all the bad loans through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The end result is plenty of homeless people and peopleless homes.

Do you understand that of those 18 million people around the world who die from poverty-related causes, very few of them actually live in capitalist countries? For instance, I'd like you to try to find out how many of those dying poor people live in North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, and other countries that have extreme disdain for capitalism.
