    Hate and greed are human trait's, capitalism causes these behavior's to express themselves no more then in any other form of a ideaology/system.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Peaceful? Not in the time of U.S. history. Because the push for wealth distribution has divided this country beyond belief. How dare someone think they are deserving of what another EARNED by the sweat of his brow and think it is alright to have their government by FORCE take it from those who actually put their life on hold to get the education needed to land a job that would produce a good income? It's time to address the fact that too many are making poor life choices and do not expect to take any personal responsibility for them. I truly believe in a safety net at a state level, but what is happening now is outrageous. The safety net is being abused. But that is a no brainer when the federal government is pulling the strings.

    Re: Has capitalism increased hatred in the human race?

    Has anyone even hinted that they have the slightest proof that "capitalism has INCREASED HATRED in the human race?"

    Why am I confident the OP author isn't going to say WHAT HE CLAIMS EXISTED before capitalism for which humans were LESS hateful?

    Nothing cancels out. The existence of right wingers isnt a good argument against Capitalism, no more than mentioning the USSR and Socialism.

    Lot of words there, but nothing of substance.

    You are wrong that my message is one of hatred. But you are right that the message does not equate to hatred of the human race. Perhaps you meant something else, try again.

    Envious of what? Persons who cannot see their inevitable destruction? I'm sorry, but there is nothing to be envious of.

    Don't get me wrong, he did his best, and it is nice to see that he has loved ones, but he had it all and he is doomed. Sorry, it just does nothing for me.

    What I said was capitalism creates huge imbalances in the distribution of wealth. That is true. You have taken a true statement and gone off the deep end.

    The system is flawed. That is the truth. If you want to start playing the blame game, that is an endless finger pointing exercise.

    Some of that is due, IN PART, to historical injustices that are the result of greedy people who cared nothing about the humanity of others in their pursuit of profit. That is not to say that those disadvantages cannot be overcome, but the truth is that the causality is partly rooted in that injustice and greed.

    Even people who have college degrees have difficulty making ends meet these days.

    And part of that is due to the systemic flaws in capitalism that result in huge imbalances in the distribution of wealth.

    There are quite a few people who are in poverty who have done the right thing, but who nonetheless find that well into their career their job was shipped overseas. That is due to capitalism.

    In fact, the only reason why this capitalist system works at all is because of government interference. Otherwise the system would have collapsed long ago.

    Assuming that is the case what exactly did I misunderstand?

    Again you missed the point. The point you missed this time is that your response had nothing to do whatsoever with the point that I was making. What I said supported the point that I was making.
