Love is everything, I love you all.

I'm so glad I'm not on the list.
It's so nice to find ONE person who doesn't blame me.

Well calling people stupid isn't exactly showing any love or kindness.

Lets see you blame capitalism, hmm.

Oh, you must mean an economic and political system characterized by a free market for goods and services and private control of production and consumption?

Or do really mean our monetary system that is based entirely on debt. I know that's what I would blame.

And as for love...

Capitalism isn't an artificially created economic system like communism. Capitalism is what happens on the black market and in places where supply and demand are allowed to run free.

The problem is, countries like the USA aren't capitalist anymore. Not really. Instead of making laws that purely protected individuals, we have made laws that allow corporations to run amok and take advantage of society. The USA is a Corporation Society, not a capitalist one.

Plus, we've tinkered with capitalism so much we've wrecked it. The lawmakers (for the last 100 years) were too ignorant to understand capitalism or how to make laws that kept it working properly.

True capitalism is a beautiful thing. Look at bitcoin - I know it's being used for illegal purposes, but that is capitalism in its purest form, right there.

As a conspiracy loving person, you should be all about individual capitalism.

It's our fault!

We are the suckers that were gullible enough to vote for con men instead of credible statesmen. The majority of our politicians only represent themselves.

See ya, Milt

I think you mean fascism

Fascism (play /ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a radical, authoritarian nationalist political ideology.[1][2] Fascists advocate the creation of a totalitarian single-party state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through indoctrination, physical education, and family policy including eugenics.[3] Fascists seek to purge forces and ideas deemed to be the cause of decadence and degeneration and produce their nation's rebirth based on commitment to the national community based on organic unity where individuals are bound together by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, and blood.[4] Fascists believe that a nation requires strong leadership, singular collective identity, and the will and ability to commit violence and wage war in order to keep the nation strong.[5] Fascist governments forbid and suppress opposition to the state.

The article is a good read..

I'm such a popularity loser ffs, I have absolutely no power, anywhere.
I can't even get one damn star or one damn flag.
If it was someone like bodock or slayer typing the exact same thing, people would be all over it and it would be in the top pages.

All I want in my life is to have influence and change the world, nothing else matters.
I feel so sad, sometimes I would just want to be someone that doesn't give a s^%$ about no one at least it wouldn't hurt has bad to see that no one gives a sh#$@# about me.

Go listen to my songs that everyone likes if they just take the time, but who has time for me anyway

George Carlin said it best..."The Earth isn't going anywhere....WE are." Then he said something to the effect of the Earth shaking us off like fleas...

At least capitalism is regulated raiding. If we all had socialist governments, eventually, somebody would want "more" and organize, and raid for it, like in the old days.

Human conflict is ALWAYS about the control of resources. Sure, we've killed in the name of ideals, etc., but in the final analysis, controlling resources is ALWAYS at the heart of any conflict. In a sense, life in general is this conflict...the need to gather needed resources. It's why we go to work each day, etc., to get the resources we and our families need.

Greed wouldn't disappear with capitalism, it would simply be expressed in a different (and more violent) form.
