    Remember: any unnatural death that occurs under a ‘Communist’ regime is not only attributable to the leaders of the state, but also Marxism as an ideology. Ignore deaths that occur for the same reason in non-socialist states

    Re: Was Karl Marx Right About Capitalism?

    Marx had several flaws.

    1. He believed that workers were owners of a company. this is simply not true unless workers own stock in that company. that is what work contracts are all about. While workers do own their own labor they rent that labor out to a company. just because you work for a company doesn't mean you own it.
    The flaw in this thinking is that if you hire someone to work on your home do they then own a stake in your home? the obvious answer is no.

    2. Cryonism happens in any system that people are involved in. it is not simply tied to capitalism and it is only worse the less freedom is in the system.
    3. Marxism is good on paper but bad in practice as it ignores human nature to try and create a utopia. It makes a general assumption that everyone will take care of the other person and that people are willing to give up their personal belongs at someone else's whim.

    this is not the case. as there is always someone in the group that will always acquire more than someone else.

    there will always be a person or a group of people take power over the others. maxism leads way to dictatorship just look at all the countries that tried it. all have dictators.

    I thought about something today. I was at a mall that has very high end stores that cater to wealthy clients. When I was starting my business I went to the office and talked to someone about leasing some space. That charge so much for rent, that it forms an enormous barrier of entry in the first place. But this is the thing that got me. The really good spots, they won't rent to you, even if you have enough money. You have to be one of the established designer brands before they will lease space to you. I was thinking, back when those people were establishing themselves, black folks were not even allowed in the game.

    Would you like to compare notes?

    What have I read of Marx's drivel?
    Capital, Vol I
    The Communist Manifesto (Really more F. Engels but Marx gets the credit)
    Critique of the Gotha Program.

    That dangerous fool wrote so much nonsense that it fills 50 volumes.

    As far as not understanding goes, first, his writing requires a certain detachment from sanity to understand. Second, I bought the following:
    A Companion to Marx's Capital (I read this one)
    Communism and Christianity analyzed...
    Eighteenth Brumaire of L.B....
    Historical Materialism...
    Marx Rises Again (article) (I read this one)
    Marxism Unmasked (I read this one)
    Revolutiuon and counter-revolution in Germany in 1848
    The Cambridge Companion... (I read this one)
    And six more..

    The guy was a dangerous kook.
