Capitalism works for capitalists, and capitalists are in power. You can either grovel to them or be a man/woman. Those who support the system will never be those things.
Thanks from tristanrobin and right to left

What a magnificently bogus argument!

Asserting "Capitalism works for capitalists", which it may well do, implies that it doesn't work for the rest.

NONSENSE!!

Contrast the standards of living between places like Cuba, Venezuela, or China, with the U.S.
True:
There are some in China that live very, very comfortably.

BUT !!

Guess what !!

They're either politburo members, or they're CAPITALISTS !!

Addressing this contrast by anecdote is conspicuous subterfuge.

The vastly more representative comparison would be that between median, or per capita living standards.
So please tell us.
At your current rate of $income, where would YOU rather live?
- Cuba?
- China? Or
- the United States of America?

Capitalism is totally destructive of all humanity, obviously, but the very rich at least pile up the swag. It is like being caught in the Stone Age. Grow up and stop trying to live in the sordid past!

a) Capitalism exists.

b) Humanity has not been totally destroyed, contrary to the preposterous ravings from iolo #436 etc.
That proves the falsehood.

c) In addition, there is not one logical refutation in #436.
It's merely unsupported claims.

So do trees, so do stones, so do caves. You don't have to live in them any more either. I'd give humanity under this system a hundred years, if we are very, very lucky.
