    Is welfare capitalism?

    Welfare

    Is there any controversy between capitalism and welfare? Should it be eliminated?

    Welfare is a social program provided by the government, while Capitalism is an economic system. Two different animals.

    You mean like socialism? They're both economic systems with political ramifications because they include the role of the government.

    Democracy, republic and communism are more political systems.

    There is no economic system without politics (laws). Am I wrong?

    You can't compare the two . . . capitalism is an economic system. Welfare is a social program. The two can co-exist quite fine, thank you. And, no, welfare should not be eliminated.

    I didn't say you could separate them just that Welfare is more of a government operated program than an economic system. Even the Romans had a sort of Welfare. All Charities are a form of Welfare, it simply means helping those whom by circumstance are impoverished.

    Yes, welfare is a government policy. The question is: should it exist?
    Charity is something different since average Joe doesn't get taxed about it but some people decide to give things away for free.

    I don't like the idea of welfare at a federal level. I think people in a community should support each other. But Americans are too self centered for that.
