    Easily Crapitalism fails at every turn oh joy you can be rich while others starve where's equality there? You criticize the USSR well atleast it gave housing and healthcare and education to all. You know NOTHING about the USSR you just read propaganda from Cold War against the Soviets.

    Trick question. NEITHER system is political. They're economic.

    Kudos for being bright. Either one if Absolute. With Capitalism the money eventually concentrates so only ONE has ALL. Socialism (Communism with better English, GBS) diffuses money so EVERY has NOTHING.

    Would like try to both together with a minority stake with Libertarianism holding the balance of power with it's proportion regularly adjusted to current economic conditions.

    Actually I suspect the proper formula is Capitalism and Love for ones Neighbor. Unfortunately, that cannot be legislated.

    .....maybe. Have you ever read 'The Mainspring of Human Progress' by Henry Grady Weaver? It is a paean to Rugged Individualism and the real Free Market. An excellent read too.

    Glanced the Wiki version & it sounds fairly balanced, maybe my gripe is against Fanatical "Pluto·Theistic" Monetary Pagans [Ferengis?] instead.
    The 'gravitation' of money towards itself is sound Physics
    but Biology defies that relentlessly.

    If you're to sloshed to read street signs & house numbers might take you a while to find your particular building.
    Even the opening credits of "All in the Family" had 'cookie cutter' housing.

    Because, I dont think Capitalism is a form of government. Its an economic system run by natural supply and demand.

    Communism is when the government controls the market.

    You don't think Capitalists manipulate the Market? The Sub-Prime problem was perpetrated by the Banks who gave loans to people they knew were likely to fold.
    They also paid insurance on the lot.
    When the bottom fell out they pleaded poverty & got plenty of bailouts .

    If individual liberty is to be paramount, Capitalism is the better model.

    Actually, the answer is socialism which mixes both. People's necessities (Energy, Housing, Health, etc) are nationalised so as to not be held ranson to the market whereas luxuries & extras are free to be bartered for etc. Many intelligent economies are slowly moving towards this as Free Market Capitalism & Rigid Communism have both failed throughout history every time.

    Free Market Capitalism works every time it's tried. The problem is, it's easily overwhelmed by corporatism.

    This is not even a choice Capitalism is an economic system like socialism
    Communism is a political ideology like republican or democrat

    How about both are equally as bad and we need a mixed economy instead of either extreme.

    Capitalism because I'm sure they meant Democracy, democracy where the people have the right to vote for what they think is right and not have someone else decide for them

    I mean a free market society as opposed to an economy/businesses owned and controlled by the gov't. Including your private life.

    Capitalism and communism are different ideologies and cannot work together.

    Communists, uphold that the society is above individuals.
    Capitalists, uphold that individual freedom is above the state or society.

    Capitalism is a self regulated economic system.
    Communism is a government run economy.

    With capitalism, the individual has full control over production and decides on the price structure.
    With Communism, it is the society or the government that determines the price structure.

    Communism can never work due to a fundamental flaw in the human race which is Lust
    The lust for power, fame, fortune, and anything else you can think of. Some will go to great lengths to quench their lust and greater lengths to keep it.

    No it is not! There is;
    Dictatorship, Totalitarian, Theocracy, Monarchy, Parliamentary, Republic, Anarchy.

    Then there is the manner of selection of the government;
    Revolutionary, Totalitarian, Oligarchy/Plutocracy, Democracy

    No Capitalism.
