A home-schooled 15-year-old has a pretty good handle on the differences between socialism and capitalism. From lewrockwell.com:
Writes a Mom:
I asked my 15yo homeschooled Zoomer to write an essay comparing and contrasting socialism and capitalism. Here is what he said…
Socialism is only the means to the end, which is death and destruction. Capitalism is the answer, the antidote to socialism.
Most Americans today do not want socialism and believe it to be a bad ideology and horrible practice. Plenty of people alive today in America have witnessed socialism back in their homelands, and they want capitalism, never socialism, or its offspring, communism
Socialism, itself, is not the final quest of socialists. Socialism is the means through which socialists install something worse, whether communism, Leninism, Maoism, Bolshevism, or whatever.
Recently, I saw a video with this statement , “Don’t blame me if you have no money!” from a lady selling buttons and pins at a table on the street. Her statement has become a meme for capitalism.
