    Yes, I'm really an anarcho capitalist. Why would people suffer?
    We've seen what capitalists do without regulation, it's not hard. If anything, we'd revert back to feudalism.

    The problem I see regularly on this forum is that people like yourself imagine that what people in this country need to meet their basic needs is the same amount needed in other countries.

    It hasn't been built yet, and if needs to be done by force, I can understand why.

    Oh, I understand that, which is why I look at food prices, comforts like a bed, ****, even shoes..
    Show me how wonderfully these people live.

    I suppose, although I highly doubt it will come to that, in regards to using armed force.

    The center of your complaint is large corporations that you believe fail to pay their workers fairly, while small businesses you find to be far more fair to their employees. What you're basically arguing against is the support network provided to business, not capitalism itself.

    That is what it came to before. Not only did your system lead to wide spread theft of property, but also the death of anyone that opposed your ideals.

    They don't pay them fairly. Wait, what the hell? Don't you know what a monopoly is? Capitalism itself is a broken system advocating the for profit utilization of production, seeking out the cheapest labor, regardless of the laborers condition, this is alleviated with regulation though, the inevitable wealth gap it creates..

    oh, do you think that if anyone got in the way of you idea, you are not going to be for killing them?

    i suppose?......NO you would, which is why you type of world will always fail, because worlds built of force do not last, they can created, but they always destroy themselves in the end.
