I Hate Capitalism

    This Sucks

    Who ever says capitalism is good should be thrown in a cage with some chimps with rabies armed with bats. I have been unemployed over a year now. I have been unemployed before for longer periods of time. I have also been homeless before. Why? Some of it is my fault of course...

    Advertising

    Advertising is trickery. i am often baffled by the outright ridiculousness of commercials and how they actually work on people. all you need to do is turn on MTV to see the magic. its often gross to see how it plays on peoples insecurities.   what inspired this story is...

    The Problem of Capitalism

    The problem of capitalism, in my opinion, is that eventually money just goes to money. So you end up with a tiny group of people with huge wealth and a vast number of people living in poverty. Just take a look around, and you can see it. Eventually you have huge global...

    Abuse

    This system abuses people and the environment and I wish for it to be destroyed.  It is the largest problem in the world today.  Our world today is more superficial and surface oriented than it has ever been.  People care more about Sanjaya on American Idol than...

    Iraq For Sale

    How do we look as a humanity,

    as a group, that money, a piece of paper, decides of the quality of our life and experiences? The single thought of capitalism in general makes me become a little bit more communist every time.

    .... But sadly I can not think of a system

    Crony Capitalism Is Not Capitalism

    t's all the current fashion to dump on "capitalism." It was the greedy free market, supposedly, that created both the housing bubble and the housing bust and led, inevitably, to the "great recession." Capitalism, according to most liberal pundits (and even Alan Greenspan in a...

    There Should Be A Limit To How Large A Company Can Get

    If you can get rid of capitalism you can get rid of many problems in this society. One reason why Americans are too fat is because of the poor quality of food. Diabetes is a leading sickness in our society and I bet everyone of us knows at least one person who has it. The...

    All people think about is money,

    money, money. People die for money. Kill for money. Sell themselves for money, because your body, your mind, your soul is a capital. Sell all you have and buy those dreams, because that's all that matters.

    Capitalism is clearly not the system humanity

    ought to allow into their lives. All it does is create an unequal society and allow greedy corrupt elites to start wars as a means for expanding their wealth by stealing resources from other countries. My two main reasons why I refuse to support this system of turning humans...

    Why Some Of You Despise Capitalism

    I define capitalism as a social order where claims on the profits of businesses are protected by private property, and can be bought and sold. If you accept my definition, there was no capitalism before the 19th century, and the stock market is the key capitalist institution. A...

    The Customer Is Never 'right'

    because if he was, the product would be free and always improving. Capitalism is a system of laws designed to reward the holder class who do not create wealth with the product of labor, which does.

    Capitalism: I hate it though I live and breathe it. It sanctions the commonplace breaking of the 2nd Formulation of the Categorical Imperative, that people shouldn’t be treated as a means to an end.  Capitalism makes greed into common sense.   We like it because it gives us...

    I've always been relaxed on the kind of clothes I wear. My choice of clothing has always been plain; not very trendy, not cool, but comfortable. I always felt weird about shopping, even back in 7th grade (I'm now a junior in college). I felt like a phony walking around in stores...
