8. The USSR was, in my opinion, a form of capitalilsm.

It was state Capitalism. The government acted as a capitalist as opposed to private investors, but it was not socialism.

10. Exactly. And cheap labor with no workers rights sounds familiar to a certain political party here in

The US. We have a political party here that advocates AGAINST higher wages, against healthcare, against education, and against workers rights. That would lead exactly to THAT type of economy.

15. Paying a living wage would greatly help U.S. capitalism lose its 'slavery' stigma.

Not destroying collective bargaining also.

11. And that's the reason you can't compromise with capitalism......

BECAUSE you're praised for your good business sense. Even a so-called "good" capitalist can't compete by being a good human being.

13. Only democratic socialism can save us all from these greedy bankers and these evil corporations.

Sometimes I wish the working class would rise up in arms though even though I know that it'll never happen.
