 Capitalist plague

capitalists often claim that comunism is like a cancer, but is it really comunism that is like a cancer, or is it
capitalism? it depends on who you ask. although you never hear the argument against capitalism, there are many reasons why
capitalism doesnt work.

1) landlords keeping deposits. deposits were originally created to protect landlords from reckless tenants, however, in a
capitalist society, landlords often, and frequently abuse this arrangement, using it as an opportunity to seize tenants
deposits.

2) doctors ruining peoples credit, making apointments iwthout permission. capitalism gives rogue doctors an opportunity to
ruin patient's credit by claiming money that they don't deserve. for example, a patient may decide to make an appointment
with a doctor, but the patient is by no means required to return to this doctor after the initial meeting. often times,
after a patient discovers a doctor is incompetent, inexperienced, or dishonest, the patient decides this doctor is not
adequate, and decides not to return. it is common practice for doctors to schedule follow up appointments. however, if a
patient doesn't have faith in the doctor, the patient may call to cancel the appointment. what a lot of capitalist doctors
do is reschedule the patient for another appointment without the consent of the patient. when the patient doesn't show up
for the appointment, the doctor bills the patient anyway, even though the patient never agreed to the rescheduling. the
doctor then files a claim with a credit reporting agencies to ruin the patient's credit in an effort to extort the patient
for money. in a capitalist society, it is unfortunate that governments will protect these rogue doctors, and take the side
of rogue doctors. this comes directly at the expense of hundreds of millions of patients who don't have the resources,
connections, or knowledge to defend themselves against predatory doctors.

3) world war 1, and 2 were both started by capitalists who were competing for colonies.

4) slavery. forcing people to work. ie the british-american enslavement of africans.

5) cell phone companies renewing your contract without your permission. several years back, if you called up a cell phone
company to change your plan, they would automatically renew your contract for 2 years. if you tried to get out of your
contract, they could charge you as much as $300 to get out of it. similar to the doctors, they will also file claims against
you with credit reporting agencies, ruining your credit. the norm is for the government, and officials to take the side of the cell phone company over you.

6) pollution. if you compare the pollution, and waste produced by north, and south korea, clearly you can see that south
korea creates a lot more pollution. south korea also consumes a lot more resources, resources that we are running out of
quickly. also, if you compare china before, and after 1978, you will find that pollution became much worse after china became capitalist in 1978.

7) genocide. we often hear about the holocaust (which by the way was comited by capitalist nazis), however, 50 million
native americans were killed by european capitalists who wanted their land, and resources. christopher columbus's capitalist gang killed 4 million natives on their own in 4 short years

8) it is often said by capitalists that competition is healthy. however, cooperation is always better than competition. if
we cooperated instead of competing, we can get alot more done. a very good example of this is the ussr. take a look at the former ussr countries today. almost none of them were as prosperous as they were during the ussr era. russia itself lost 60% of its gdp since the collapse of the ussr. think about it like this, if samsung, and apple merged, they could probably make a better phone than either samsung, or apple could make individually, but because companies are constantly in competition with each other, they're more interested in sabotaging each other than cooperation. a few decades ago, microsoft, and apple were also in fierce competition with one another, resorting to sabatoge and intellectual property theft.

9) money goes to the wrong people. have you ever thought to yourself that it is absurd for a footballer like ronaldo to be
paid millions? that is capitalism for you. imagine if you spend the millions paying ronaldo, madonna, and michael jordan,
and used that money for scientific research, or providing quality health care. taking money away from people like david letterman could probably house millions of homeless around the world, but instead, capitalism would rather  give the money to david letterman so he could live in mansions, be driven around in limos, and hire servants.

10) false advertising. airlines like ryan air are able to advertise very low prices, however, if your luggage is over 10kg, for example, they could very well charge you $200 to check in the luggage. meanwhile, the plane ticket itself was advertized for $100. so, essentially ryan air has duped the customer into thinking that the plane ticket was $100, when in fact it was $300. all of this is, of course, protected by capitalist governments.

11) Perhaps there is nothing more important than our health, which is why it is particularly disturbing for capitalism to screw with our health. doctors often times will prescribe medicine that does us more harm than good. their motivation is to make money for the pharmaceutical industrial complex. it is sad to see that under capitalism, doctors are not interested in treating illnesses, rather they want to make money for pharmaceuticals, but the worst part is, the medicine they prescribe to us can have dire consequences causing irreversible side effects.

12) Narcotics. Also related to our health. Narcotics is a widespread problem in capitalist countries, while almost non-existant under comunism. The motivation to get people hooked on drugs is to make money. More often than not, capitalist governments simply turn a blind eye to drug abuse, as long as oligarchs are making money from it.

13) Crime. One of the worst things about capitalism is crime. People who are unfamiliar with comunism are often unaware that crime is directly linked to capitalism. If you observed any former comunist country, whether it be in europe, china, or vietnam, you will find that crime skyrocketed once those countries became capitalist. under comunism, they were all relatively crime free, and people trusted one another, and were able to leave their doors unlocked. capitalism simply drives people to do things they wouldnt ordinarily do. you often can hear about people robbing others, or comiting crimes because they wanted to buy the latest iphone. under comunism, this simply wouldnt happen.
