haha, capitalism caused global warming, or climate change, or whatever its being called this week?
look at China. communist, correct? and the largest coal burning country in the world producing more "greenhouse gasses" than any other.
just saying, it would have happened regardless.
Lets take a look at Canada without a little socialism,
You hurt yourself skiing, you go to the hospital and you insurance doesn't cover your health care costs, you dig deep into your credit cards and pay off the bills, but your hurt too bad that you can't go to work, because of this you lose your job next thing you know your out on the street, bankrupt and the only people willing to help you is the church throws some soup cans at you once a week. No welfare, no EI.
Socialism doesn't "hurt" people it makes the gap between the rich and the poor smaller, it allows those that are downtrodden to live healthily and happily buy taking money from the successful people who don't need that money.
And although there are many advantages to Capitalism and trade there are arguably worse concequences, however this is the natural progression of economics.
Let's be blunt here--we are not a family with legal obligations to support one another. We are a nation of free individuals whose only hope in getting along lies in respecting the rights of our neighbors--including those who simply wish to be left alone."----Jason Lewis, March 2009
