The American Dream isn’t that every citizen or even most would be well off. The dream was that, coming from nothing, it is possible to become well off. The founding of America changed the world because it was the first country not to be rigidly controlled by a religion, monarchy or caste system. Marxism/socialism/communism have and would only institute a much more rigid system than what the founders fought against.

Socialism is a trick of ruling class for purposes of control. All you need is to have leader over a barrel (an oil barrel) and you're in business--Big Business. Socialism violates categorical imperative--"Do Unto Others....." How would you like to be the one who is robbed by Socialists. Socialists already steal enough--if you work less, college tuition drops dramatically--here you see the fallacy of removing work ethic under socialism. Evolves out of feudalism but is only tried in pre-feudal societies, China and Russia. Socialism/Communism seems to be the way in which pre-feudal societies justify their pre-feudal autocratic governments. Communism assumes that man is good and leaders of Soviets can be trusted with all the wealth of society. Actually, in Russia, the ruling elements or nomenclatura became corrupt after the revolution faster than John McEnroe's return of service. Anarchist Bakhunin knew this would happen and destroyed Marx in debate--the Soviets would be corrupted because of corrupted human nature. Also, economist Menger destroyed Marx's theory and Marx apparently actually accepted Menger's critique--Marx stopped writing and just studied, gambled, drank, and goofed off for most of his adult life after starting 'Das Capital'--he was writing about a false, disproven theory and he knew it.

Free market capitalism has done more to pull more people out of poverty than any other form of economic system in the history of mankind. Every government that has tried an alternative form, i.e. socialism and communism have failed and it is no coincidence. There is no such thing as a perfect system. There will always be winners and losers and government can certainly put into affect systems to protect the losers, for a time. But a free market is As Good as It Gets and to believe that any government can start manipulating the free market to improve outcomes is hubris. Any collectivist form of economy fails to account for basic Human Nature. Which is why collectivist economies always fail in the long run. People like to claim that human beings are "good" , sure they are, but they are first and foremost self-serving.

You raised good points, but in reality. from what I understand of the system of both Capitalism and Marxism.. Its safer in the long run to be within Capitalism .. where as Marxism would bring us all into the third world planet. But that just my opinion based on research and understanding.

The difference between the capitalist economists and the Marxist economists is that the capitalist described the world as it was and is, where the Marxists describe it as they would like it to be. That difference is between reality and fantasy, emergent property and totalitarianism. Wolf like so many Marxists has the amazing ability to ignore human nature and history and continue to pedal childish over simplification as profundity. He contradicts himself every time he opens his mouth, but lacks the self awareness to hear himself. He even himself admits capitalism was successful in making us all much better off, but then asserts that it now is showing it's true corrupt nature by moving to poorer parts of the world that presumably will then be cruelly made to earn money and develop a better standard of living. Poor bastards.
Martti Suomivuori (22 дня назад)
Marx was wrong. His analysis did not take into account that capitalists can read. His predictions did not work out anywhere in the world. Not even Germans could make Communism work. Lamarckism would also have been a very nice theory of the Biosphere. It did not work, either. Capitalism is unfair but it has created riches that no other system has ever even dreamed of. Darwinism has given us the banana and seedless grapes.

The "American Dream' via a capitalist free market system has been sabatoged by many oppessive elements of Marxism/Socialism/Democracy that have been adopted and infused into the free market system by morally and ethically corrupt elites for their own gain of wealth and power... "From each according to their ability, to each according to their need"... progressive and excessive taxation of EVERYTHING... URSURY, or the charging of interest and compounding interest (mortgages- a house that costs $300,000 actually costs the buyer $720,000+ if only regular payments are made). Read the planks of the Communist Manifesto for yourselves.
Gio Valladares (23 дня назад)
Humans under capitalism have the best living conditions in human history. What does it matter that not everyone is middle or high middle class (AKA American dream)? The poorest people of today live as well as the richest people of 100 years ago. Marxism is a utopian fantasy land. Looks like rainbows on paper but maybe there’s a reason that every example that comes close to Marxism has been a huge failure. Maybe you say “they didn’t do it right.” Then I would say, why has no one been able to do it right in all this time? Capitalism is flawed but it’s moved more people out of poverty that any other system ever. That doesn’t mean it’s not very flawed though because it is. It’s just better than any alternative

Ok put your mouth where your money is your net worth belongs to everyone so why don’t you split it with your fallowing. History has shown Marxism does not work, but you can prove all of us wrong and start the movement with your own wealth. I agree there is room for improvement in the world but rewarding laziness is not the answer. Not impressed. Capitalism motivates innovation and creativity. Your talking nonsense with no actual blue print on how to achieve this utopia.

Michael Davison (23 дня назад)
The offshoring of jobs isn't a justification for marxism like i've seen Wolff call for in other videos. It's a justification for protectionist tariffs to protect high wage economies from slave labour wage rates in china etc. If the entire world is treated as one economy by corporations, then they dont give a damn if one nations economy is ruined by companies offshoring in a race to the bottom. Politicians betrayed the US. Western nations have been hollowed out by globalisation and financalisation. Wall steet gouges interest from buisness, house, car and student loans and stock market and savings account speculation. The fed lends the US it's own currency at interest. It's simple, protect western economies with tariffs and protect the real economy from looting by speculators and bankers. Capitalism just needs to be checked and protected from corrupt practices.

G Guidarelli (24 дня назад)
Adam Smith > Karl Marx I guess it's hard to see just how much capitalism has actually lifted the majority of people out of poverty, when you were born into it and have a limited understanding of history. Adam Smiths book "The Wealth of Nations" was prefaced by another book "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" and the 2 go hand in hand. Before shitting on capitalism ... understand these 2 books and learn about the history of how humanity lived before and after these ideas were put into practice.
Augustine O. (24 дня назад)
Socialism is collective ownership of land and means of production while capitalism is private ownership; there is nothing in there about making a buck. E.g. capitalism means you can just own your land under your title without govt approval or intervention and just sit on it if you choose too or farm on it or build a sky scraper. Under socialism you don't own any means of production, govt or whatever body represent the collective does, and you have to get approval in order to undertake economic activity through as quotas and licences. This Wolff guy is obviously a really good sophist and is just herding the sheeple away from the ranch into the wilderness. Nigeria has been a case study of socialism and marxist for at least five decades since independence and so far its been a massive failure.

Marks said “for socialism to thrive it requires two hundred years of capitalism to precede it”. In other words the best ever system of creating wealth is capitalism and the best system for distributing that wealth is socialism. What the European Union has endeavored to do is to have a mixed economy of both capitalism (regulated or controlled) combined with social transfers, through taxation from the wealthy to the less well off. Massive disparity between the wealthy and the less well off is not good or in the long term interest of a stable society. It causes instability and in the long term revolt. I’m a capitalist; I believe in innovation and enterprise; I believe in reward for hard work, success, innovation and achievement, but I also believe in taking care of the less fortunate in life.

I think it's important to examine the definition of two concepts before having a conversation about capitalism. There's the idea of Free Enterprise, which is often mistaken with Capitalism. And there's the idea of motivations, which get referred to as greed. In fact there's a bunch of words and phrases like this that we throw around without much thought given to how loaded with connotation they have become over time. And without a good understanding of definitions, our conversations inhibit our learning and communication, resulting in conflict and a sort of defensive mindset...which cheap politics loves to exploit. This is another place where educating yourself is key to getting along in the world and to us making progress together.

Capitalism mixed with socialistic ideas (like Unions) created the middle class in the USA and not capitalism by itself. Capitalism has never worked in a pure form but for a very select few. It pushes people into profits at all cost (genocide, slavery, sex, exploiting the poor, wars, and etc). Capitalism dehumanizes people into psychotics computerized monsters and pushes people to harm themselves as well as others (I'd say the same for civilization as a whole).
