I love that view, that capitalism is the natural state of things. Trade has been the cornerstone of peace and prosperity between individuals and communities since time immemorial.


thank you

It is not, it is a natural state of things.


How natural is it exactly? Natural like... err.. say promiscuity, rape and abuse?

So what? The natural state of things is decay with a strong tendency towards entropy. I suppose we should stop brushing teeth and head straight for the cellar, light a candle and just "let it be for good"?

Forget the betterment of humanity, this is about the betterment of your saving accounts. I get it, just be frank about it?



If that is the way you view the natural order of things then so it is. And one might say that all communist/socialist nations have done alot more in the terms of rape and abuse than those that did not.

I already am fairly sure of your response: Real communism has never been tried....



Here's another quick question: did communism operate under capitalism as well?

Hint: the answer isn't "no" and thus your whole response misses the point. But yes, communism is a very old concept. A few nordic tribes with their thing thing come to mind, various peasant uprisings during the renaissance and the anarcho-syndicalists during the Spanish civil war.
Communism doesn't oppose capitalism and Marx called his book "The Capital" for a reason. Go and figure?
