    cluelessklutz told me i can't call people capitalist pigs in /g so now i will do so here

    @twister307 you're a capitalist pig

    capitalism is bad because it turns economic productivity towards the interest of capital rather than the interest of people. It only sustains itself so long as these 2 interests coincidentally align. Because capital's interest is infinite growth and people cannot sustain this growth these interests will inevitably dis-align.

    Socialism is great, look at Canada.

    All values are in USD.

    Household debt:
    "The average American household carries $137,063 in debt..."
    "The average Canadian household owed $16,546.97..."

    Cost of birth:
    USA: $40,808
    Canada: $0

    Cost of broken leg:
    USA: $35,000
    Canada: $0

    One year of cancer treatment
    USA: $400,000
    Canada $20,000 (These are for pills which are not covered)

    National debt per person:
    USA: $65,704.64
    Canada: $28,683.98

    Electricity:
    Hydro One: Well regulated & doesn't start fires or kill people.
    PG&E: Killed 88 people last month and burnt down thousands of homes.

    Poverty Rate:
    USA: 12.3%
    Canada: 7%

    People in jail per 100,000
    USA: 457
    Canada: 139

    Life Expectancy:
    USA: 78yrs
    Canada: 82.3yrs



    Based off my experience as well, it is much nicer in Canada on average.

    I have lived in Canada for 11 years and California for 5. On average it is much nicer in Canada and there is less wealth disparity. In California, my zip code averages $150,000/yr but the next one over averages $60,000/yr. In Canada there was no difference that significant until you reached major metropolitan centres.
