The application of capitalism has been absolutely amazing and increased the quality of life substantially.

Just look at the 30's to see what would happen to Capitalism if the gov didn't insure the banks

I want to post pics of Soviet Russia and Great Depression US and see if anyone could even tell the difference

So, for you, price gouging is preferable to the government preventing price gouging?

This isn't how it works in theory or practice actually without state intervention

Monopolies and Trusts are formed virtually overnight and prices are rigged

Nothing

Capitalism

Works

Without a gun to the head

There's nothing natural about pitting people against each other to fight for basic necessities and self worth

There's nothing natural about destroying the environment it's akin to ****ting where you sleep

We are one of most cooperative species on the planet, this system makes us immoral and more importantly stupid

I hope everyone can see the obvious truth in that. Private property is a legal concept. Laws are enforced literally at gun point. Therefore capitalism cannot exist without oppression. Not even in theory.

The point is that I believe in the free market more than government control.
