Debating with a "democratic socialist"Submitted by BluegrassGraycoat on Sun, 06/24/2012 - 20:55
Hey guys, I think I just may have set myself up for an unintended debate. I recently commented on a friend's Facebook post about local police, and ended up later talking to a guy who described himself as a democratic socialist, saying that he believed that a mix of socialism and capitalism was the best way for America to go. Of course he correctly guessed I was libertarian in ideology and said we should debate sometime. I'm more than willing to talk politics to some leftist than a brainwashed neo-con, but I'm no economist. What would be some good arguments against socialism, in favor of true free-market capitalism, etc.? Thanks!
