In the U.S. most often it's because people didn't have the foresight to not get sick and need medical attention ..

How irresponsible of them ..


Medical Bankruptcy Is Killing The American Middle Class

When it comes to bankruptcy, the study cited court records of bankruptcy filers from 2013 to 2016, with the end result showing that 66.5 percent were tied to medical issues. In other words, they couldn’t pay their medical bills, either because they were too expensive to begin with, or they had to take time off of work and were not getting paid.

Prices are rising fastest in health care and education, where government interference is highest.

In every sector with relatively little government interference, prices are dropping or remaining stable.

Not really.

Say a human is starving. Capitalists have driven up the prices of basic foods such that the human cannot afford to buy any food. Is that human willing to give up his life to the capitalists?

Nope. The human is forced into the situation.


yes, if only we could have pure Socialism...food would be so cheap and available...

Imagine thinking that the capitalist era made food more expensive.

This is some serious science/reality denial going on here.

Here's the price of wheat over time. Note the trend that began in the 1700s (which coincides with the start of the bourgeoisie revolution/ liberal commercial era).

Plus the widespread use of hydrocarbons in the 1800s.

Made the human labor involved in the production of wheat far more efficient and expanded supply chains like never before possible.

Yep.

We're debating people who live in an alternative reality. This timeline never happened for them.

Or maybe this has more to do with the mass mechanization of agriculture and transport? With improved growing/harvest/storage/crop rotation practices? With finally tilling the rich soil of the steppes to grow wheat for export instead of grass to feed grazing livestock? With the addition of the American midland to grow vast amounts of grain?

Ya think?

Sure. But that occurred in the context of capitalism.

Yes, capitalism fosters improved techniques and technological progress.

Export? That almost sounds like exchange... and gasp.. capitalism.

Also made possible by the context of capitalism.

At this point... just give it up. Capitalism has provided the context for immense increases in wealth and happiness. Denying that just makes you look crazy.
