  •  Their problem is with corruption, not Capitalism (3+ / 0-)

    Condoning this is like condoning the right when they say Obama is a Communist, Socialist, Fascist. When you get to that point you are just throwing insults devoid of any meaning.  

    •  What insults? (11+ / 0-)

      What in the world are you talking about? I get that you don't approve of anti-Capitalist sentiments but equating the expression of views you disagree with to demonstrably false charges leveled against a particular individual makes no sense whatever. The first is a difference of opinion, the second is a political smear.

      Nothing human is alien to me.

    •  LEAVE CAPITALISM ALONE!!! (0+ / 0-)

      Seriously, MrSpock, I appreciate your appreciation for capitalism, but the problem here is that you're taken as a given that capitalism should be preserved from criticism qua economic system.

      You may like capitalism, but there are thousands of books critiquing capitalism. I have read many of them. And I like many of them too. And I am not ashamed to say that I am against many of the essential features of capitalism, such as the logic of accumulation that essentially renders our planet's future to be one of destruction.
