@Ceci Look up the subreddit 'r/CapitalismvsSocialism

2 weeks ago

@Ceci I don't advocate for Communism. Venezuela is still Capitalist (70% of the economy is privately owned) it's just socialist is the difference. It's economic troubles are more connected to international blockades, trade sanctions, and corrupt officials. The 'why don't you move to...' argument is so dumb, it's like saying 'why don't you move to the worst possible example of something you're not even arguing for'. I could just as easily say 'why don't you move to Somalia if you like unregulated capitalism so much, why don't you move to Somalia.". That's a terrible definition of capitalism and socialism.

Aleksander Whyte no it’s not. I see u are trying to push your political agenda so goodbye.
Plus chinas doing better now than it was before the 80s

And if you like communism and socialism opposed to capitalism, move to Venezuela and see how u like it.
Socialism takes bread away from the table that capitalism provides.

Or how else should I put it:
Capitalism: unequal wealth based on what YOU EARN and WORK for
Socialism: equal distribution of poverty based on work you DID NOT do.

@Ceci Massive corporations are allowed to violate workers rights all they want and there are massive systems of monetary corruption in every level of government. That's capitalist

The world should realize that Hong Kong has been part of China but was forcibly taken away by the British for a duration in history. So, many Chinese around the world disapprove of the "two systems" which had inevitably created a barrier and hindrance to a true union, hence all the troubles that had surfaced.Those Hong Kongers who despised China's rule should instead curse their ancestors for having migrated to Hong Kong, another piece of land in China. If they want to remain in Hong Kong and take root for generations to come, they should face the reality and co-operate, otherwise they should follow their ancestors' footsteps and migrate elsewhere if they are not happy with the state of affair of the country, imo as a Singaporean Chinese.

More info:
HK writes traditional Chinese, China writes simplified.
The 70 million area has a historical language, Cantonese. Many Chinese migrated from elsewhere and they speak Mandarin.

So? Singapore and Malaysia Chinese also used Simplified Chinese and both do speak Mandarin, which accounted for 11 million people. And I speak Cantonese at home. Chinese are a diverse lot.

This is not a city. EU and UK could make claims too. This is a merging cities that has happened in the Europe and US decades ago.
