    Moved from the Marxist Animalism thread as off topic.

    I also researched some articles and found this interesting blog https://differencebtwn.com/difference-between-capitalism-and-socialism about capitalism and socialism

    It is incorrect on a number of counts.

    The resources are owned by the government ‘

    Not so, common ownership is not government or state ownership. A commonly owned society will not need any government over the populace.

    The people themselves will own and manage resources locally, regionally, globally.

    ‘Price is controlled by the authorities’

    Not so. There will be no priced access to the commonly owned resources but free self determined acccess.

    Supposed to ensure equality in society but difficult to provide a thriving society

    Mere assertion. It will be a socially equal society in relation to decision making, to production, to direction and with self determined equal access then unequal need can be met.

    No competition leading to laxity in the will to progress

    More mere assertion and variation on the religious human nature arguments which have been thoroughly debunked by socialists.

    Equal distribution of wealth

    It is equal access to wealth and not equal distribution.

    The authorities are lax in providing the resources; few incentives for growth

    Proceeding from the same nonsense about authoritive government control.Growth in capitalism is to satisfy profits and not human needs leading to unnecesary duplications of products during profit accumlative growth period and dumping , destruction and wasteful activity, unemployment and increased poverty during the inevitable slumps which follow.

    With  an advanced, production for use, free access society, human needs will be satisfied and we will move towards a steady state situation.

    Good idea to have transferred this from that toxic animalist thread (which I am sure I won’t be the only one not to look at). The link should have been called “The difference between Private Capitalism and State Capitalism”. We are more interested of course in what they have in common— minority ownership of productive resources; production for sale with a view to profit; and the wages system— and is why are opposed to both.

    “I also recommend read this article https://differencebtwn.com/difference-between-capitalism-and-socialism”

    Why do you insist on repeating this rubbish?  The erroneous description of socialism contained within this article have already been well and truly trounced here.

    I think the poster is probably a “prankster” with too much time on his/her hands due to the current health situation and no friends to play FIFA with.

    It is just spam promoting a personal blog with potential advertising streams. I have replied in his blog but do not expect him to publish it.

    In the meantime he is blocked until he reponds to my contact of him.
