    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...

    Explore the Alternative . . .

    Alternative to Capitalism: You need a product. Government is in charge of all manufacturing of products. Government decides if product is good enough and how much you have to pay to get product. After all, who knows you better than Government? Capitalism: You need a product...

    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...

    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...

    This Sucks

    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 Hope It Collapses(Contains Some Symbolism)

    Capitalism with a carrot is called representative democracy which is an obligarchy, capitalism with a stick is called fascism. Get what I mean? Both are imperialist and oppress their people. Capitalism is evil and immoral and promotes greed and is only driven by selfishness...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Crony Capitalism Is Not Capitalism
