    It's the only thing that really does. You only have to look at places that have lived under socialism for any length of time to see that.

    Poor in the US have cars, TVs and cell phones. Most of the world they live on dirt floors.

    Yes, if they get off their butts, and get a job.  "The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing" (Proverbs 20:4, KJV).  Conversely, if you keep giving "free" handouts to "poor" people, but don't demand labor, they will never repent.

    capitalism has lifted far more people out of abject poverty than all other social systems combined.

    No, since capitalism builds on the fact that there is a large group of poor people to use for their own interests, but we do kind of have this system today. Money has lost all it's value and are being pumped out into the world like nothing, but as long as everyone agrees that it's alright, nothing will happen. But as soon as someone start to "cash in", it will all crash.

      Well, that's just the thing. Everyone still agrees money is money, but there's nothing to support the moneyprinting going on at this time, but it has no real value. I'll trade it for all your silver though...

    Capitalism is the most effective system for lifting people out of poverty. Unfortunately, what we have in America today is not capitalism. It's corporatism. 

    In capitalism businesses thrive by providing some benefit to the consumer - better marketing, cheaper products, faster delivery, etc.

    In corporatism businesses thrive by cultivating close relationships with the government through lobbying efforts, then leveraging those relationships to gain a strategic advantage. This doesn't provide a benefit to the consumer - it provides a benefit to the government.

    Of course it can, if they are willing to try to improve their lives.
