A good defense i've heard of socialism would be that a lot of the horrors lived through previous socialist countries were personal decisions, the Great Purges, the Cultural Revolution, the Great Leap Forward, Stalin's quick collectivization (which some may argue was required, either "capitalist powers would have crushed the USSR".) However, this argument is then followed by saying colonialism and tragic moments in history like that of the Congo Free State can only be attributed to capitalism.

How much horror can we attribute to capitalism? is it only the exploitation? was the Congo Free State or the hunting of Australian aboriginals a "product" of capitalism? could the same excuse of those events being personal decisions by leaders work here?


Capital is wholly at fault for every massacre and war of the past few centuries. Nations fight for it because it is their lifeblood. It causes competition between states just as it does between firms.
