    Life is not fair.  Capitalism at least gives people an opportunity to try to succeed.  Communism just equally distributes misery.  Capitalism has some connection between effort or risk and reward--thus inspiring effort.  Communism has to coerce effort by brute force.

    Should it be changed? Yes. But not hugely. Freedom is important to everyone, but corruption should be eradicated or at least pushed to a stop point. Many exploit around the world - if we all worked fairly and all work to a good standard we'd get along much better.

    people always say i'm wrong but to me, capitalism is the single worst form of governing or whatever you want to call it in the history of the human race. ya i know it's suppose to be about freedom and getting ahead by working hard but if you actually believe that is what has happened you need to give your head a shake. tell me in 10 more years how well it is working.

    Capitalism is a system that addresses the individual's acquisition of equity in relation to others and is not intended to be fair to the individual but to make a profit.

    I believe so. It's about risk and success. About talents and rewards.
