me: "Capitalism does this more than socialism."

"False. Let's see if you can see the problem with your statement...."

Isn’t “Capitalism does this more than socialism” just an assertion that alone cannot be judged? The reasoning is the area that can be attacked. I can either reasonably support this idea or not. I am guessing you are just stating that the reasoning I likely use to support this idea will be flawed, contradictory.

Stepping back for a moment, I wonder if it might be more productive to debate a specific area within the economy and whether or not that area ought to be organized under capitalism or socialism. For example, “all public schools in the United States ought to be privatized.” Debating capitalism vs. socialism seems to be so big…Are debate propositions typically this general?
