How do you define capitalism?

For the sake of this, capitalists are people who are basically apologists and defenders of the oppressive parts of capitalism.

Can you please explain to me what the oppressive parts of capitalism are?  

Well, all of it really.

  • Capitalism involves profit going to the boss and then the boss distributing the profit. This practice leads to the oppression of workers because bosses never distribute profit fairly, leading to a class of working poor individuals.
  • Capitalist theory doesn’t call for any regulation, and pure capitalism, or free market capitalism (which doesn’t exist in America now but many capitalists think it would “fix” our economy) bars any and all regulation of industry and business. Lack of regulation leads to harsh, dangerous, and filthy work environments, child labor, etc.
  • Capitalism encourages Imperialism. Capitalist America has, many times, bled weaker nations dry of resources under false pretenses.
  • Capitalism allows discrimination based on gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, age, etc. in the work place.

Those are the basic examples, but that doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Ooooooohhhh man this question sucks. Listen, to ensure the elimination of the oppressive monarchy, the entire bloodline had to be eliminated. And this wasn’t like, “yeah we’re tired of this tsarist crap so we’re gonna end it.” No. Tsars were extremely oppressive and the practice needed to end and the number of royalists was too large to just kill Tsar Nicholas II and it be done and no one try to take the crown. I am really conflicted about killing the children, though. I feel like they should have been held prisoner instead and (possibly) converted in their own ideologies. Idk, I’m just really opposed to executing children.

To clear up any confusion about my gulag post, the messages I’m referring to definitely are not criticisms of the Stalinist regime or the unjustified enslavement of innocent people in gulags, but automatic criticisms of the idea of forced labor for rehabilitation because it is attached to communism.

I’m not a Stalinist lmao.

cunnilingustips said: The first articles I ever found on it are lost in cyberspace, but I can do a search for you if you'd like :) Honestly it makes so much more sense that Orwell was communist. In highschool the plot didn't seem to match up with communism, and last year when I heard otherwise, it felt like puzzle pieces came together. I felt lied to and pissed off honestly! If it is true, it says a lot about our government.

Just want to make it clear that I may be wrong!!! I hope I’m not though :s

Please tell me your use of tankie just now was ironic.

cunnilingustips said: I'm sorry you're getting rude asks & they're not reading what you've written properly. Anyway, I was wondering if you've heard of George Orwell being a communist? We're always taught that Animal Farm was about the fall of communism but I've read several articles that it was really about the fall of capitalism. Which makes more sense, especially with the pigs being the oppressors.

I would love to read these articles if you can remember where to find any of them! Having evidence that George Orwell was actually communist would be the biggest one-upper against capitalists ever.

southern-feminism:

Well, you don’t get paid in money in communism. Communist workers have direct access to resources.

Believe it or not, there are people out there who are genuinely interested in the more difficult jobs, such as medical jobs. I don’t know about you, but I would rather have a doctor working on me who actually has enthusiasm for helping people and didn’t just get the credentials for the money, which is actually a huge problem in today’s society.

Well, I made myself look dumb. I meant, what’s the incentive to do a hard job that doesn’t require any special expertise rather than another job like that which requires less effort. Of course, I agree, I’d rather be treated by an individual that wanted to practice medicine, and I’d rather scientific research and development be done by those who are enthusiastic about their fields of study. I meant, why would someone rather have a distasteful job, like a sanitation worker, rather than a job in retail or a fast food restaurant?

This is a really good question. I’ve read a lot of articles about people who do the “dirty jobs” who really, really take pride in what they do. I see how, from the outside, it seems like a job that is no fun, but keeping the world clean is a very prideful job and a very large number of sanitation workers are very prideful about their work. If no one does sanitation work, people get sick, and that is incentive enough for someone to step up and do it.
