True capitalism is necessarily contrary to fascism (your statement was quite ignorant and arrogant) although they each have their own sets of decaying
crap. Nevertheless, capitalism plainly offers more chance, in our modern world, for charity (by orderly giving rather than by forced giving which is
not charity), and order (by brotherly self-control rather than by strangers controlling strangers). But, again, no particular political ideology is
And to fully point at the stench of the ignorance in your statement; What country is truly capitalist that you might be referring to? It's nearly
been 100 years since capitalism went the way of the buffalo (150 years if you start counting at the force applied by the USA against the CSA instead
of when economics and politics really started being hi-jacked with momentum nationally - the 30's or so). I am still so surprised at how little
people observe and/or comprehend of what is right in front of them.
Fascism (from m-w.com) - a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual
and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible
suppression of opposition.
Sounds more like communism, socialism, zionism, corporatism, etc. Truthfully and obviously, while capitalism certainly has it's trappings, it is the
only common and modern ideology that isn't fascist. And while the constitution stands, despite being in shreds, I will honor it above others. I,
personally, would pick tribal order facilitated by localized and charitable judges, but that seems to be only a dream at this point.
The Law of the Spirit says: Give to others because Life has given richly.
The Laws of Men say: Give to us or we will treat you harshly.
Maybe you should revise your vulgarity to a definite title with a parenthesized listing such as: "fascist pigs (and the derivatives - socialism,
communism, corporatism, etc).
