Basically, I understand that Socialism is "Take from the rich and give to the poor" and Capitalism is "Everybody minds their own business, no Gov involved and no 'take from rich and give to poor' stuff" (Correct me if I'm wrong, I could have mixed them up a little) Which one do you agree with?Answer Question

I don't agree with either. They're both flawed concepts - both are selfish.
I believe in the way the Apostles laid it forth concept; that is how my husband and I have lived for the past 34 years. I believe people - whether ministering or not - need to be holding jobs of some sort, paying their own way BUT helping others as the need arises. I don't think enough Americans help enough American here on the homefront: they ((may)) help in some third world country when they need to pat themselves on the back, but there isn't that much help happening here on home ground. There's something wrong with that ... MPO.

Capitalism, simply because it give incentive to be prosperous. And while people think that it sets up an atmosphere that harbors selfishness, we also have tax benefits from helping others. When people are successful and are prospering, they have more to share willingly. When you have socialism, they will only give what they have to, because at the end of the day there isn't much left to share. It penalizes those that work hard to get ahead and benefits those that don't want to work as hard. It sets up a stagnant atmosphere that doesn't give incentive to do better or more.
