    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...

    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...

    Personally...

    I actually would prefer a Democratic Socialism form of government... Capitalism is fine, I hate Capitalists... They're too damned greedy. Capitalisim would be great if so many people didn't get left out.

    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...

    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.

    I Feel Guilty Everytime I Shop

    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...

    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...
