We Fart in you General-Free Market-Direction|
Where to start.
I knew this was going to start causing some problems in the field of Economics. The thing is that this idiocy is happening here too, it just hasn't garnered the same support. Americans still seem a little worried about, oh I don't know, maybe the whole 7 hour bread-lines, the starvation at the hands of an over-oppressive brutal government, and the fact that we would be changing something that has worked for over 200 years.
Have you ever noticed that almost every time someone attacks capitalism, they are doing so from the comfort of a capitalist state, while it is the non-capitalist state that lies in ruin, and poverty. And at the same time that someone will tell you that capitalism is the reason for the poverty. Yes you must be right, it has to be capitalism that has ruined the impoverished nations. I mean, it couldn't be the drug-running warlords, or the genocides carried out in the name of tribal warfare, or all those wonderful socialist steps the UN has taken to stop poverty. I mean it could never be the fact that a lot of these countries are run by dogmatic religious fundamentalists who don't like freedom, pish posh, it could never be. It most certainly could NEVER be the fact that a lot of these countries treat their woman as baby machines and nothing else, taking away their right to learn, to work, and to even show their face.
You are right oh great Che, it must be capitalism. I mean just because marxism never worked, and killed millions upon millions upon millions of people, shouldn't be the reason you give up. The Reason is that Capitalism is the reason for over 200 years of prosperity, minus those years of the depression ( Blame the Federal Reserve, not Aggregate Demand, Keynes you damn fool). Capitalism beat Communism. Collectivism (read Communism) leads to nation states as glorious as Nazi Germany, Mao's China, and Stalin's Russia. Not the mention that Utopia of Cuba, ya know the place where if you aren't already brainwashed you risk your life to escape.
You have heard it before, but I must say it again. Communism is at odds with history, in that it has never worked, yet continues to draw the loving eyes of the uber academic. Why, cause saying you have read the the Manifesto is much cooler than reading the Wall Street Journal, NOT!
