The fact can be objectively proven, the opinion is just an opinion.

Get it?

Socialism is paying someone for their skill, with the pay being adjusted due to ones need.

This can be either done by a bureaucracy, or through a democratic process of government forced worker owned production.

Either way it involves stealing property and someone else deciding how much you can get paid, in a manner that has more to do with need than with actual output or performance of work.

NO, it isn't! To have a capitalist system, you need the capacity to accumulate capital and hold private property...which both have to be protected by state power fwiw...this is where capitalists demand government interference! It's just when the state says: "look you rich fuck! You're living high off the hog and there's people slavin away who can't earn enough to cover their rent and feed their families"....that's when capitalists become anti-government!

I googled popular ice cream flavors. China has the greatest population of any country and rocky road did not make the list there. So, your fact is just your opinion.

That is the most insane thing I've read today. Almost as insane as what your traitorous president did.

As my signature says, you can have an opinion in the absence of fact, not in conflict with it.

However, Rocky Road being a popular ice cream is not a fact. It may or may not be true depending on definition.

Hope this helps!

No.
Capitalism is an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.
