They are buying US companies and footing the bill for the salaries of workers.

The main reason rich Chinese are investing in the States is that they're afraid of their government confiscating all their money saying it was gained by graft.

Cute answer. So you're saying the CPC would rather lose money overseas than in their own country?
If the money is gone from their iinvestors they have no IP to show for it.
The Chinese government can produce as much money as they want.
A lesson learned from the US Federal Reserve.

The rich would have no problem throwing scraps to the poor, to keep them in line.
I have always po ...

But if socialism transferred enough money from the rich to the poor. there would BE no poor left. The minimum wealth would be "middle class". There would no longer be any "economic victims". Yet the rich would REMAIN rich. They don't NEED and "poor" people.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

Then the world would be divided into just 2 classes?
rich and middle?

hmmmmmm.....
got to give some thought to that.

Would that be sustainable in the long run?
What would happen when (not if) the rich become greedy?

I'm thinking if such a system is in place, people would still have to hold "careers" and be pigeon holed to do one thing.
The best in life, would be where everyone can learn and do things according to their individual curiosities.
That would be a life filled with new experiences and adventure.
A life where people do one thing "all day, everyday", can be frustrating.
All people have more than just "one" skill and are capable to do many different things.
A society which can utilize and nurturers these qualities in people, can achieve ANYTHING!

Not sure capitalism can achieve that, because it is based on "where the money is" and not necessarily based on an individuals curiosity.

If the government was democratic and the majority controlled the laws it would work. Because the rich are always a minority. So their greedy actions would be limited by laws.

yes of course capitalism needs to be regulated. and used for the benefit of all.
selfishness and greed are natural. and healthy . and should be regulated and directed to the benefit of society, that is the regulators job.

You would think that...
but in reality the rich have control of who is "democratically" elected.
There are 60+ lobbyists for EVERY Senator in America.
That is a lot of money and control.
Politicians need money in order to be elected.
(that is where it all goes wrong)
