: I have a class doing a debate on this topic and my team is on the Con side of this debate. Anyone that can help dispute Capitalism and there reasons for such a view please e-mail me.

"their" not there - just me playing teacher.

: Thank You

I imagine your teacher will be rooting for you regardless of what you say, nothing like using the enforced attendance in a classroom to indulge in some ideology.

You could read some of the posts here for inspiration and focus on inequality fo outcome, uneven 'playing fields' in terms of opportunity and education - you could go the whole philosophical 'no such thing as an indivual, no such thing as individual responsibility' way - but even your teacher might not understand it then.

Ofcourse you could just point at rich people, without looking into how they are becoming rich, and wail "its not fair"

Look forward your A+ either way.

Hope the pro team can think of something better than 'coz we get more sneakers' and if they do (for instance in exploring what has to happen to productive people in order to supply various 'rights' to otehrs) look for your teachers' hefty criticism and guilty pictures of third world.

me, biased about the state of education in the state?

erm...yeah ok, I am.
