Honestly, right now I'm mostly fine under capitalism, but that doesn't mean everyone else is living alright. Everyone else is most certainly not living alright, with people dying of many preventable causes like starvation and preventable illnesses, only with capitalism's pay-or-get-out mentality to blame. The Soviets actually seemed okay with welfare (if you weren't on one of their lists), and I think you're just creating a bad choice to troll.

If welfare is your concern then you should choose capitalism so there's actually money to pay for it.

You don’t know how money works...

Money isn’t some resource you find in the ground or mana from heaven. It’s a social contract for resource allocation. There are other ways to fairly distribute resources. Soviet Communism was an attempt at that.

Yes and the bread lines showed it failed.

Literally, no one here thinks Soviet “Communism” was communism. You’re not changing anyone’s mind by not understanding. There are wikis for this, why not go read a bit then come back and troll once your arguments are more interesting to us.

As is, you’re not contributing positively to the conversation here on Raddle and you’re not advancing any goals of turning anyone into a capitalist.
