Laws were founded on the principle of cooperation, with other people! Not out of thin air.

And eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. What does that mean to you?

OK, buy your materials. What's stopping your neighbor from killing you and taking your materials and land?

Listen dude, you either live in lalaland and think you're invincible, but capitalism allows for people to make constructive agreements to build civilization. It's not always about you.

I'll just give em the Ol' FIRM HANDSHAKE, and WORK REALLY HARD!

It's worked every time for this ol' redneck. Are you saying you cannot keep up with a redneck? Are you not as good as a redneck?

Hint: also try not explaining to your boss how evil and oppressive they would be if they hired you. I never personally had a problem with that, but it might help.

It's not a 'free market'. That's the fun part.


Then why are you always trashing on "CAPITALISM" if that's not what you're claiming the current system is? The fact is the US is a plutocracy/oligarchy/corporatocracy and is extremely corrupt, and LACKS free markets. If you haven't noticed, the government has been bailing out some of the biggest corporations and wasting billions on PPP loans to fraudsters (and their buddies). By "picking" winners and losers, the government is not letting the markets properly correct to natural valuations, which is also what happened in '08 when AIG got bailed out and the government nationalized mortgages via Freddie & Fannie

Currently the claim is that the wealth disparity & root of all socioeconomic problems is capitalism, while we are just hanging on to any semblance of capitalism while the leftists want the Fed & Treasury to continue printing trillions to "hand away" to every person, including illegal aliens & criminals while taking money away from law enforcement and allowing small businesses and innocent citizens to get burnt & pillaged.

My point is that it is the EXPANSION of the state and government which has decreased the standard of living of everyone else, and socialists like yourself are asking for MORE government. The state is already bursting at the seams with inefficiencies, lack of incentive, absent of accountability and ripe with FRAUD, CORRUPTION, WASTE and ABUSE.

But you want more state and less entrepreneurship/independent freedom? Like a previous poster said, the whole victim mentality & modern day radical left movement is pathetic and hypocritical to its core

If you want capitalism to be about something other than capitalism, then stop calling it capitalism.

You're trying to shoe-horn the definition of socialism to capitalism and still call it capitalism.

Economic systems change. They evolve. That's reality, capitalism isn't a static idea. It's time to move on and build a better version.

You are just sad.. it's ok. You can enjoy socialism in one of those socialist authoritarian countries. Why don't you let the big kids go play their own games, mkay?

So you admit you want an end to capitalism.

'Kay.

Are you with the person in the OP for lining up the capitalists and shooting them?

'Cause that's a game changer.

No, not out of thin air. Laws are the fence surrounding society. They keep people from straying too far from what the majority wants. Within those laws, people are allowed to cooperate or not. A fence does not indicate the desire of the captured to remain there.

Incidentally, capitalism is based on cooperation, not just competition. Corporations are the ultimate in cooperation: a group of investors who all cooperate together to accomplish more than they could individually. Do you support corporations?


And eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. What does that mean to you?

A blind and toothless world.

I'm not against capitalism. I'm against people who exploit it, who aren't willing to change with it, who can't see it's flaws. Who will screw their neighbor for max profits, who will watch the world burn for profits, who will want to revert to slavery with it.

I want free markets. And if we have talking points like profits above all, laws cannot protect people, because profits above all will infiltrate the laws.

I already answered that: the very things you are supporting getting rid of.

You claimed I was drifting. Why are you now drifting?

Do you, like the person described in the OP, want to kill everyone who doesn't think like you?

If you follow the model of max profits. What's the more profitable than just killing your competition right?

Are you calling Dick Costovo a capitalist now? Do you think he is just trying to increase profits?

I really have to wonder how many leftists here would actually be for killing those who think differently.

Judging by some of the posts of some, I'd have to say quite a few.

Why is it that leftists always want to kill people that disagree with their ideology?

Is their ideology so weak that it cannot stand the scrutiny of critical thinkers?

He's pointing out the major flaw within the system ...

Are you that naive that situations like, you know The French revolution, American revolution, China, war of 1812, Russian revolution, etc actually happened? That if people are pushed far enough they will resort to violence?

Dick Costovo is worth over $300 million. How exactly is he being pushed too far? What, he couldn't afford a new paint job on his yacht this year?

What will a society look like if all the business people, entrepeneurs, leaders, are shot by the weak and cowardly leftists?

Because if the leftists could create, build, innovate, then they would.

Obviously they can't, so who will be left to do it for them if they kill everyone else?
