Capitalism facilitates growth of wealth through mutually agreed exchanges. It lets those without property work and acquire property. Problems arise when the gov intervenes and the exchanging party that is deprived seeks a way to bypass intervention. Inequality is a political not economic problem
because capitalism is a pseudo-intellectual self-serving ideal promoted and advertised heavily by the wealthiest 0.1% of people.
it guarantees massive income inequality. Capital returns dominate all other returns as proven by empirical data.
Piketty's book Capital.
capitalism gives the stupidest people on earth a lot of confidence, and lets them propagate their genes more than smart and beautiful people do. (The premise of the Idiocracy movie)
Idiocracy movie that was supposed to be a comedy but was a documentary instead.
because it is far easier to make large profits by deceit, conflict, theft, bribery, and murder than via hard work.
because capitalism is not based on scientific, observable facts. It's based mostly on closed pressupositions that form a belief system (e.g. invisible hand). It really resembles more a religion then anything else.
aussume: all problems can be traced back to capitalism => capitalism is a problem. the humans naturally developed capitalism => capitalism can be traced back to human nature => human nature is a problem. human nature existed before capitalism => human nature can't be traced back to capitalism
because the ideal "anarchist" fulfillment of capitalism leads to neo-feudalism, which is too far from democracy.
because capitalism has no regard for anything other than profit, which led the capitalists to lie about anthropogenic global warming, and prevent a transition to green energy, which may well destroy many existing ecosystems, make half of land based species extinct, and kill millions of people.
because massive income inequality is the almost unavoidable consequence of the minute laws and rules that make up the capitalist system, which are written by the wealthy.
because capitalism has no regard for the moral justifiability of its sole invariant ultimate goal: the accumulation of all possible capital
because those who work the hardest often earn the tiniest, which leads to a root social conflict that breeds indiscriminate hatred throughout our societies.
All the problems as we know them know. Perhaps capitalism was necessary to give perspective for a possible living standard. Now we must evolve out of it and find new possibilities in favor of everyone, no matter what race, class or gender. Don't forget, capitalism isn't a force of nature.
All of humanity's greatest achievements (visiting the moon, halving world poverty rates, drastically reducing inter-state wars, vaccines, improved standards of living, etc.) happened after Capitalism supplanted monarchical feudalism and merchantilism as the primary economic system.
capitalism is a system of social and economic organisation which impacts every aspect of individual lives and societal conditions
