The point is this, liberal economists such as the Manchester Liberals advocated a free market as a way of abolishing unjust discrimination, because they argued that those who are trying to sell a particular item do not care if the person is black, white, European or African, as long as the customer can pay the price of the item. What I am saying is that capitalism does not guarantee that. Merchants will still discriminate, based on who you are.
Capitalism cannot ever govern anything, that takes governments. That is usually the mistake that Socialists make about Capitalism, they assume that capitalism is a type of government like Socialism is a type of government. But Capitalism isnt a type of government so therefor it cannot govern. Governments govern commerce and a point that Marx liked to ignore. Marx liked to say that Capitalism itself will lead to this and that, but he doesnt include that fact that it is itself a government. Its like saying that a school full of kids will lead to the lord of the flies. Why yes it probably would if it wasnt for the school staff.
Chanel was founded in 1909, and is very known world wide. What makes you think that you deserve the same recognition as such a well established business? If you want that level of product recognition then you need to spend a great deal of money on advertising your product.
I like how you have attacked me personally accusing me of knowing nothing about the retail trade. Yet you seem ignorant of the basics of the retail trade. So much that I doubt that you have actually tried to LEASE space in a mall. You do realize that you lease space in a mall not rent it right? Also some of those leased spaces in the malls were built for that business in the first place. Most of those big names bought their leases when the mall was built. ANd those that were not there at the beginning were vetted for their ability to draw people to the mall. That is called marketing your lease space. There isnt any discrimination in determining that one business would draw more customers than another competing business. If you are oblivious to those entry level business marketing strategies then the mall did you a service by denying your application to lease a space at their mall. Why were you even thinking about competing with those damn capitalist elitists in the first place? Were you going to become one of them?
I dont care what "liberal intellectuals" think about so called free markets. I am not a "liberal intellectual" so therefor feel no need to defend their views. Perhaps you should go talk to those "liberal intellectuals"?Again, it has been argued by liberal intellectuals that a free market will do away with discrimination because vendors will sell to whomever has money. Capitalism, as I have demonstrated does not guarantee that.
But still capitalism doesnt guarantee anything because it isnt something that can govern. Socialism is a type of government capitalism is not. All governments regulate capitalism with economical rules and regulations. Only extremists want a unfettered free market. Marx was wrong capitalism can be and is regulated. Though I agree that more regulations need to be put in place as things stand today. But not Marxist regulations that are nothing more than a attempt to topple capitalism and replace it (and our government) with Socialism. The reason that Marxists attack the wealthy is because that is what Karl Marx designed as a method to destroy capitalism which stood in the way of his ideological type of government. Karl Marx created a protagonist ideology that has no tolerance for any diversity of thought. Ask any Marxist if capitalism is ok and they will go on about how it should not be tolerated. Ask a Marxist if there could be something better than Marx's designs and they will tell you no. The Marxist school of thought is aimed at discriminating against anything other than what is on the Left. that alone disqualifies Karl Marx as a philosopher of any worth.
Rationally one should keep a open mind for something more advanced than what one knows now. Follower's of Karl Marx do no such thing. Its either follow Marx's ideology or they will bring war into the picture. Meaning that to Karl Marx followers either capitalism will be as he said or they will make it that way.
