If you have a totalitarian bolshevik Jew regime that controls all the banks, media, governments and universities in the west and uses all of their powers to intentionally subvert and disintegrate the west from within then you can't say that that system represents capitalism, just like I can't say that the soviet union represents communism because it doesn't.

Because the internet is SATURATED with contradicting programming from multiple sources all centered around making a profit.

On only ~200 years capitalism killed every single western nation, what do you want now

No it's not just jew.
I don't know for every country but in france this happened when DeGaulle died(degaulle was "authoritarian" ""far-right""leader who rule for some years with some communist make the nuclear project, spatial project(france was the third nation to go to space)he make executed people who wolrk with nazi, give independance to algeria afr the french military victory overs rebels because he didn't want to have 20 millions french algerian, try to stop american influence in france...etc...etc)
A lliberal started to do measure like massive immigration because it was the economic interest of france, it indeed make the country more rich.
He do that because he was a capitalist and capitalism is a marxist neologism who design a form of goverment were the increase of wealth is the main political subject.

If you are a capitalist you already put the nation and the people beside economic interest and it's the logic who kill the west today.

They are not crazy they just think economy is the more important thing and thris no need of subvertion to come to this logic

grow up kid

what we need is a true free market and a move away from collectivist shit like public healthcare, centralized governance, high taxes, bloated state departments, and get rid of lall the useless laws which prevent people expressing themselves. lassiez faire capitalism is the doctrine of innovators, who wish to create jobs themselves and benefit those who help achieve their ideas.

communism is the doctrine of lazy idiots who just want to either be told what to do or tell everyone else what to do for the rest of their lives, with little room for individuality or innovation. it has led to genocide and social discourse almost everywhere which it has been implemented, and the only reason capitalism is failing is because communists have all the money because politicians are in their pockets

It's easier for jews to weasle their way into one business (and they get the government for free too) than it is to weasle their way into multiple businesses and the government.

While the non corrupt businesses fled to Europe or America with their money too.

They are mostly Muslim as well. The insane breeding is cultural, not dependent on wealth. Christians don't reproduce like the muzzies because they are taught that you should value life, they usually consider the circumstances they'll have children in and abstain if they know it will fail.

Also, if you havn't noticed, communism promotes civilization destroying bs. such as gender equality, equality of outcome at any cost and dependency on the good will of the state. If you want a healthy society you need competition to get people to perform as best as they can, not coddle them like some degenerate children.

Capitalism has a great check against greed and uncontrolled growth of power: Competition. If a competitor tries to be greedy and raise the prices massively or exploit someone, the other competitor will simply be kind or slightly reduce prices and take all the market share, which disincentivizes greed.

For instance, if two companies are selling chips at 1$ and one of them raises the price to 2$, whoever raised the price goes bankrupt immediately, which makes prices over time adjust to the equilibrium point where prices can't go any lower without the owner making a loss.

Always a labor surplus
Unemployment is pretty stable currently. If a programmer thinks "shit, there are too many programmers!", he can open a business, employ all those other programmers for low cost, since there is a labor surplus and make a lot of money. But there isn't a labor surplus. It's this ridiculous notion that there are crazy flaws in the system and every capitalist can find a way to use this supposed flaws to make a big profit, but somehow, somehow it isn't that easy.
You can't just hire women, because you have to pay them 23% less. The wage gap is a stupid myth and if it weren't, someone could easily exploit it for his profits. But: Suprise, suprise, no one did it, because there is no wage gap. Same with: An employer can just drive down wages more and more. Bullshit. Life isn't that easy.

If I don't like an offer, I don't take the job. This notion that the employer and the employee shouldn't make a contract, because some third party knows what's best for both is the thing that annoys me. You are not smarter than everyone else, not everyone disagreeing with you is just a mindless sheeple person.

Personal property is for personal use. Private property can be something you never use, like the means of produciton.
These definitions are unsatisfactory because they only explain what I can do with them, not what they are. They are also very ambiguous. If I work at home, and if we subscribe to these "personal property" and "private property", I am using my home as personal property, but at the same time it is a means of production. I use the floor of my home to stand; without it I could not work. I also use the computer to work, or the tools inside it. I might also own a factory, and live there.

No, things are much simpler when we just deal with private properties. No need to overcomplicate it with this.

You can own firms without working in them. Workers and municipalities don't have the right of first refusal.
Yes, of course I can. If people weren't okay with this they would do something else. If I have people working in them for me, it all came through a voluntary transaction.

In socialism there is no employer and no third party because the worker is the employer. They make their money by selling whatever they produce. Capitalists didn't get where they are just by being better or smarter in some way, if capitalism was a true meritocracy it would have ended a century ago. Can you imagine how pissed off poor and unemployed people would be if they actually deserved to be where they are?

This is exactly the point, whoever is using the means of production should own it, when there is pure private property this is not always the case. But when there is pure personal property this IS always the case.

If I have people working in them for me, it all came through a voluntary transaction.
This is pure ideology, if a voluntary transaction was all that made capitalism go round then it wouldn't make certain commodities illegal like heroin or nuclear weapons. What is sellable is determined by the state, we simply don't want people to sell wage labor since we'd be better off if we didn't. For the same reason we shouldn't commodify the human soul.

There are ways of acquiring land peacefully. In the past, people peacefully acquired land through homesteading (maybe in your Alaska people keep doing). You worked the land, then that land was yours. Another way would be to buy it from someone else.

Property rights are more than just pieces of land. Property rights are the boundaries that allow peaceful transactions between people.

but this was a thing that used to happen.
Until some people said "fuck it, fuck sexism" and employed women, having lower costs, thus higher profits, thus could drive down their prices and beat out competition, which they did and thus they proved, that hiring based on merits works best.

Yes, and it always exists and must exist for capitalism to work.
It takes to time to find the right job/the right employee. In the end work is there to be productive, so looking for it might take some time. Long term unemployment is indeed a problem, but you can't magically make these people productive. You can give them a job, like ...cleaning the street, but it probably won't be worth anyone's money. Keeping them busy for the sake of it isn't going to change them.

In socialism there is no employer and no third party because the worker is the employer.
My argument was a slap at the wageslavery argument, but I'll take your response:
A fundamental problem is how to grow or even form a business. If I get government to give me a building and machinery, everyone would do so. If everyone is entitled to it, it will take some time, in Eastern Germany everyone was entitled to a car and was on a 17 year wait list. So: I have to find a group of people (or be on my own) that get a building and machinery to open up a business. Now, I went through all that shit to get all these things and now I need more people to make everything run. Can I just invite them? Can they just join my business. Can I fire them if they employ themselves? Can they just overrule me, sell all the stuff and destroy the business for some quick extra money?

It's just so much easier in capitalism.

Capitalists didn't get where they are just by being better or smarter in some way, if capitalism was a true meritocracy it would have ended a century ago.

The Walton's don't really do shit for wallmart.
Their parents and grandparents built an empire and decided to give it their kids. Of course, the kids are lucky to have great parents, but they still have to employ a CEO that runs the business.

They have it easy, but if you want to get rich or want your kids to be rich, you have to build an empire, just like the Waltons.
They'd have it easy even if they didn't own wallmart anymore. They're already filthy rich, why do we have to make them filthy rich for all of history at the expense of workers.

Many did actually, but that was hardly the point I was making.

the USSR was essentially a state capitalist system, but it still did a lot more for the russian people than the Czar did. Perhaps Russia wouldn't even be industrialized if it weren't for the USSR. They literally went from a war torn rural backwater to the second superpower of the world.

Brayden Wilson

You fail to realize that capitalism would never willingly take actions that are cost ineffective like that except in a post-scarcity economy which means everything will be automated and unlimited so by supply and demand it would become free leading to a communist utopia.

If you want communism to work then the only way is to advance capitalism to the end and stop putting socialist restrictions on capitalism except with regards to human rights issues because we're not barbarians here.

The reason it's failing today is because taxes are crippling the big businesses who have less money to pay workers so they can't hire as many and socialist programs soak up those tax dollars and give them to niggers in the form of welfare and other things.

MUH billionaire CEOS
Almost nobody actually has over 1 billion dollars despite being "billionaires". It's all assets, Trump for example has 3.5 billion in real estate but only at best a couple 100 million dollars cash and considering the debt he's got into in the past, he could lose all that in the blink of an eye so he has good reason to not share that money.

So I have to make my pitch to some bureaucrats or can I take a loan of 10 million?

No, you'd have to convince the people in the firm to let you in first.
So I can't get a job if I don't convince someone to hire me and I probably would have to give them the power to fire me if I try to vote something they don't want, since:

Can I fire them if they employ themselves?
If they give you that power.

Can they maybe employ me if I only take a fixed profit? Like a wage?

short term.
And on long term it destroys their companies, so at one point they will have to sell their stocks and that's when the stock will plummet. Also, if you let people buy power over your company, they can use the power.

filthy rich for all of history at the expense of workers.
If you don't want to make them rich, don't shop at Walmart. They can only get your money, if they sell you stuff. And if the workers feel exploited, they can always leave.

They literally went from a war torn rural backwater to the second superpower of the world.

state capitalism
If you want to take away the factories from the 1%, the state has to take them. And to let no one ever claim ownership over it, it stays within the state.

No you make it to a banker, the same as now. You could also ask a private individual to buy bonds from your firm.

Can they maybe employ me if I only take a fixed profit? Like a wage?
Yes, but remember this must be decided democratically. So you have a say in it, and while some firms may choose to do this, most will probably not since it puts the profit sharing of other workers at risk.

And on long term it destroys their companies, so at one point they will have to sell their stocks and that's when the stock will plummet.
Yup, but that's the capitalism we're living in. They'll loot the company and then gtfo.

If you don't want to make them rich, don't shop at Walmart. They can only get your money, if they sell you stuff.
But its in my rational self interest to do so. I'd prefer to change that.

And if the workers feel exploited, they can always leave.
Unless they have no better option.

Russia had a massive territory and no troops made it to Moskwa
Tens of millions of people died on the russian side, and regardless, that's not the only war they had. They also had a civil war and a foreign invasion before ww2.

And guess which side flourished and prospered while the other side built a wall to keep their citizens inside.
East germany initially did better until the West poured all its aid into the West.

If you want to take away the factories from the 1%, the state has to take them.
Municipalities could do it, or the state could just issue a mandate that ownership be transferred to the workers. They never have to be under their direct control.

Firms get paid whether you actually find utility in their products or not.

Most firms depend on repeat business. You can't even count on shafting everyone once, since it doesn't take long to develop a bad reputation.

It's only in your rational self interest if you value ***BIG SAVINGS*** over the environment in which you shop and how they treat their workers.

If someone is dead set on buying 'murrican-made goods, they're not working against their self-interest by paying more for them.

What's your "rational self interest" is defined by your individual priorities.

You fucking shit heads suck ass. Communism is a joke. I would be more willing to accept monarchy or an outright despotism over some big brother nanny who steals my hard fucking work so the lazy and the useless can thrive on degeneracy.

I honestly hope you have a daughter and she is brutally gang raped by the most degenerate potatoheaded mutants you have ever seen. I hope your sons are pulled into the street and curb stomped for holding an education or believing in god or real freedom. I hope your property is confiscated and then given to a families of nigglets and brown anchor babies who you share nothing in common with other than the fact that your all poor as brown liquid shit and are getting shafted by an inefficient government burocracy. I hope your culture is crushed, your history erased, and your progeny lost to an ocean of degeneracy.

It's up to the customer to find the good that gives them the most utility. Doing so takes a bit of time and effort which they may or may not be willing to spend.

When it comes to big ticket purchases, services I need done reliably and fast - I'm very likely to ask around, look at opinions online and carefully compare several options. If it's something minor - I might just pick it off the shelf, because it's not that important to me.

Utility however is not objective - for someone an Iphone is ideal, for another it's an Android. Someone needs a slim phone with long battery life, someone needs a giant-ass screen and a powerful processor. With a free market you get a range of products based on demand. With a planned economy someone up top decides what's a proper smartphone for the proletariat and then orders to produce just that.

People still actively pursue their self interest under socialism - it results in a sprawling black market trade of goods and services, and corruption. The only difference is everyone is all-around poorer due to the additional, arbitrary hoops they need to jump through to get what they want, while the government spends their money on retarded shit.

I make no apologies or defenses of past attempts for communism.

In terms of control, the control is only taking from capitalists and given to bureaucrats, there is no practical difference to the workers.

I'm a catholic, I buy Marx's basic analysis, but I'd also be inclined to believe that the earth is only God's property, as are we and it's blasphemy to say we are its owners. But on the other hand, I'm also sympathetic to Stirner's arguments that we should see the world as our property as God does, in which case there is also the egoist argument against capitalism to consider.

Yeah and Neoliberalism, spreading democracy by force with corporatist backing is not.
That's neo-conservatism dumbass.

I imagine that giving everyone ownership of property would mean stealing it property in the first place and that's immoral. A thousand people can go out and buy a factory and they can all own it and run it together. So why don't you communist go set up a communist fast food chain or a communist anything? Because you'll get out competed.

Kayden Morales
Kayden Morales

if everyone owned the commons and was directly responsible for it, there is no problem. And I do mean directly responsible.

The way you guarantee direct responsibility is private property and voluntary agreements - it makes it crystal clear who deserves what and when.

When ownership is collective evading responsibility becomes a crucial survival skill. Whatever expensive measures of control you enforce - anyone in their right mind will tend toward avoiding responsibility during decision-making, and then try to swoop in for the credit when the risk has passed.

Marx ran two newspapers into the ground as the operator. Engels worked in one of his dad's factories, and whined to Marx about them forcing him to show up to work at 10 am. He also bragged about taking naps in the afternoon and quipped that anyone could do this job.

Well yeah, because his dad owned the factory and gave Engels a goldbricking job that he couldn't be fired from.

Man the world that you live in much like Marx and Engels, is not the real one.

It's been proven: large industries cannot be privately owned or it leads to unfair political intervention and other manipulation (such as destructions of the lives of workers). Socialism is needed across the world, but no communist garbage because then people cannot get what they want, its just the government rationing light bulbs and bread. There is also no incentive to pursue higher forms of education because everyone is paid the same, and there are these extremely wealthy government buddies in communism who also hoard the wealth, just like in capitalism. Fuck communism and capitalism. Socialism

Jaxon Wilson

Yep and they are started by ambitious and energetic and self-sacrificing ideologues - not rank-and-file workers. And they are just as oppressive as any capitalist work site but they pay a bit more. They also tend not grow at all, and employ not as many people. It turns out, that workers getting a share of the profit and a vote don't want to bring new people in and share with them.

How are you going to make jobs like this?

Aside, they're also all started by upper class white people with expensive liberal educations who have a safety net against failure, too.
