Yep, we live in a completely free market society and it is failing as a result.

It doesn't work for you if you're too stupid or lazy to understand how to make it work for you.

The rest of us think it's just fine, thank you very much.

Fairness for the climate?

How the fuck do you have fairness on something that we have no fucking control over?

Capitalism will continue along just fine in this country long after it's been outlawed.

Think about that for a moment.

People talk about capitalism as if it's something tangible.

Actually it's socialism not working. The USA has heavy duty socialism despite what many think.

Since Great Society onward we have generations of deadbeats of all colors, uneducated children, family breakup and so on.

Hell yeah!

It existed long before that, and in fact it even existed before we knew how to describe it, or had a name to give it.

I would go so far as to say that free market capitalism is the natural state of affairs. Hell, I'd go so far as to call free market capitalism a law of nature.

People were bartering goods and services at mutually agreed upon rates long before any government existed. The only reason we ever created government in the first place was to PROTECT that system from criminal coercion by third parties. How ironic that now government has become a bigger culprit in that regard than any lone bandit could ever hope to be.

All of this...is perfectly well stated. Marvelous. Wonderful. As if I wrote it. Get out of my head.

The part in red, is something I've shouted from the rooftops. People ignore this at their peril. It's like gravity, in this regard.

No different than the hippies and college students protesting a WTO meeting. They simply don't have a fucking clue what they're talking about. Turn on the water cannons and blast away.

We could end socialism once and for all if we could force politicians to live by the same rules they want to set for everyone else. But they want to get fat and rich while they're in the process of redistributing everyone else's wealth but their own.

The "Grey Market" was what kept Soviet Russia out of starvation.

The party knew it, which is why they turned a blind eye to it if it wasn't excessively overt.
