    I suggest getting some perspective on how much the world has improved because of the industrial revolution and capitalism. Look at global public health trends, standard of living trends, life expectancy trends, etc. Most people don't know how good they've got it. If your biggest concern is how fat you're getting (or climate change) rather than pillaging barbarians, clean drinking water, or the plague, then you've got it pretty good.

    These charts show the world is better than ever — even if things seem apocalyptic

    Across the world, on every continent, people are eating more (and more equitably) compared to generations past, according to data analyzed by Max Roser at Our World in Data.

    In 1961, the average person consumed 2,200 calories a day. By 2013, the number had risen to 2,900 a day.
    In Italy, for example, roughly 64% of kids held steady jobs in 1881. By 1961, the rate had fallen to less than 4%.
    Pretty much every movie, tv show, and CD made is because of capitalism; the internet, the clothes you are wearing, and this very forum is the product of capitalism.
    Fact checkers find that Tellenbach is right 99.98% of the time on Mondays between 2:00 am and 2:01 am and 100% accurate when he's sitting on the toilet at all times.

    Nah, it's the result of corporatism, dude.
    Over 40 years ago, we were passing through South Carolina - possibly on our way to Florida.
    For reasons unknown to this day, we were shot to death, execution style, on the side of a dirt road.
    We were a young couple, probably in our early to mid-20s, and may have been French Canadian.
    Our identities have never been established.
    So... Who were we?

    That's the worst one of them all.
    I am but a dream--
    Your dream,
    A creature of your imagination...


    We're all Faery Tales; after a fashion,
    Our stories unfolding around us...
    and through us...



    In a moment you will have realized this,
    then you will banish me from your visions
    and I shall dissolve into the nothingness out of which you made me...

    Tetris would not be possible without capitalism even if it wasn't created to be sold. The inventor's house, his food, his education, his pencil, etc are all products of capitalism; it's highly likely that the inventor of Tetris wouldn't have even existed or survived childbirth but for capitalism increasing the standard of living the world over and lowering childbirth mortality rates.

    About 2 hours ago, I saw a bumper sticker for Warren and pondered the irony of it. The bumper sticker, the machine that made the bumper sticker, the car upon which it was attached, the gasoline that powered the vehicle, and the road upon which it rolled on.... are all products of capitalism. I doubt that Warren supporter understood any of it.

    The number one threat facing the world isn't climate change; it's ignorance...of how the world works, what's been tried by various nations, and the results of those experiments.

    Warren's a capitalist, unless you think the existence of things like food stamps and social security are socialist.

    Is there a DNA test she can take to prove she's a capitalist? She's about as much capitalist as she is "Cherokee".
