It's all about economics and free markets and ownership of property and the means of production.
A comparative analysis of the two systems requires much more than an examination of how free enterprise functions as opposed to a state controlled system which stifles productivity. The real difference exist in the essence of the two systems; communism stifles the human spirit and without it we lose our desire to be all that we can be; Capitalism unleashes the human spirit to soar to new heights. Everywhere throughout the history of man where Communism has been tried it resulted in the enslavement and suffering of those subjects upon which the system was imposed!
Letters of the alphabet.
