Capitalism is a scourge.
That's all I got for tonight.
@aredridel Agreed. :C
@aredridel correction: modern capitalism
@ASIC Is there another kind?
It's been a scourge since the beginning of the colonial projects.
@ASIC But seriously, don't correct people if you don't know what they mean.
And if you do that's called a 'disagreement' not 'correction'.
@aredridel Alright. Then what did you mean?
@ASIC I meant capitalism. All of it.
@aredridel Why? And what’s your preferred economic system?
@ASIC Devolved social democracy
@aredridel I had to look up "social democracy", but what do you mean by "devolved"? Do you mean communistic as opposed to capitalistic? Wikipedia defines "social democracy" essentially as SJW-run capitalism.
@ASIC Decisions made locally, and not by those with the most capital
@aredridel Good luck enforcing that.
@ASIC we could eat them i suppose
@ASIC it seems to me you're operating under the impression economic system and societal decisionmaking systems aren't the same thing.
@aredridel Unless you're talking about communism or maybe socialism, government and economy are more-or-less divorced from each other and have little to do with each other aside from governmental regulation and perhaps occasional government involvement (i.e. anti-trust breakups).
@ASIC but why? It externalizes risk and damage and undermines the social fabric.
