Bernie gets everyone so they don't have to work or pay taxes.

Greta keeps everyone inside so they do not see that it has been the highest snowfall year since the 1960s

The vegetarians will run ads that say meat market cause disease.

The socialists yell shut up & don't ruin a good thing. For once we don't have to work & we can watch TV

Coronavirus is working wonders for the eco system just like fire does for the forest.

We were the real virus all along

Capitalism works until it gets sick and then it relies on big injections of socialism to save the ailing patient.

Socialism, capitalism, and democracy work well together and poorly alone. COVID19 reveals that if you don't spend the money to prepare sooner, you will have to spend it later.

This isn't capitalism vs socialism.

You realize that those who prepared better are doing better?
Those who are totally unprepared are doing worse?

It has nothing to do with the underlying economic system.

As far as I know Cuba has little to no COVID-19, Venezuela was already under collapse, and North Korea just shoots suspect cases.
I wouldn't say that their COVID19 "success" is due to the economic system.

Now I do agree, that the best way to get people to sit at home, not work, and stop polluting is simply a sufficient basic income, and turn off the economy except for basic life support.
I don't think that is a good idea, or sustainable long term, but that is the dream world of the lazy socialist.

Don't worry, in a few weeks we'll have a mental illness crisis as the social isolation and lack of purpose drags on.

Plus Bernie isn't' really a socialist, he's only willing to spend YOUR money, he wants to keep his millions because he "earned" them.

Well, if you want to compare capitalism and socialism this virus proves that socialism (and many green initiatives) are bad during a pandemic:

- mass transit is bad during a pandemic
- shared rides are bad during a pandemic
- mass housing is bad during a pandemic
- reusable bags carry germs longer

Also, empty shelves are common every single day during socialism, but only temporary under capitalism during a pandemic.

There is no "comparing" capitalism with socialism. They are intertwined and dependent on each other. One can't function without the other.

Capitalism is the recognition that you should own your own labour.
Socialism is the idea that everyone owns your labour, it's inherently dehumanizing.
