Complaining about capitalism in a capitalist society on a phone made by capitalists on an app created by capitalists

Agree and disagree. Capitalism is necessary for socialism to spring up. We all saw what happened when a certain rather large country tried to go from feudalism straight to socialism.

You have capitalism to thank for the device you made that poll on.

Another stupid question AC: Capitalism is the single greatest economic practice for lifting the most people out of poverty ever tried.

The hilarious irony is that communes & collectives only work within a free-market economy to provide currency, property-rights, rule of law & military protection.

I worked for a capitalist company. I wanted to be paid as much as I could get and they wanted to pay the going rate. We helped each other...

Communism, socialism, and capitalism are all good on paper.

Yes. Perhaps some chocolate. At least a nice card.

Funding a proletariat dictatorship takes capital. And you could likely use a raise.

Bosses, dictatorships?
I'd choose none of the above, thanks

You cannot escape your destiny. Come to the Capitalist Side. You do not know the power of the union scale & a fully functional matching 401k plus stock options.

Hey Anarcho, you should open a business. I believe that would teach you something and humble you.
By the way, one of the best feelings in the world is giving a job you created to someone that otherwise would be unemployed.

You should join a housing collective, get a job at a workers collective. We'll see if we can change each others' minds

I lived in a kibbutz for a while. I worked in the henhouse. And you are right, it changed me. I was young and stupid. Of course I believed in socialism. I learned that it is a stupid system.

Thanks Ozzy. I remember telling my father that Communism is better than Capitalism. He just laughed and said "someday you will understand".
I hope that guys like AC keep their minds open.
