    You are right that capitalism predates socialism and communism. Ironically capitalism has far less deaths attributed to it in its entire life span than either socialism or communism.

    Wow, how can one person, you, be so wrong. Capitalism is what makes things better, creates individual wealth, takes pressure off the govt. to provide for personal responsibility issues. Exploit people? How has capitalism exploited you? Your problem is you never want to accept responsibility for poor choices you make as in capitalism you are capable of being the best you can be but in your case that is the problem as you aren't capable of being better. Socialism spreads misery equally to everyone else and always spends someone else's money.

    The media is obsessed with AOC because she wants it that way.
    I for one am watching her closely to see how far Democrats will allow her and her Sisterhood of the Traveling Socialists to radicalize them and turn America into Venezuela.

    Some would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I for one promise not to make fun of you for supporting a former Hooter's girl with the perky jubblies just because she talks a bunch of gibberish and gets the nickel head club drooling over the next Hugo Chavez.

    A fundamental premise for Socialism and Communism.

    AOC isn't particularly keen on more laissez faire rather than less of it, but then neither are Trump and his Trumpkins; consequently, hypocritically flat fall conservatives' rants about AOC's assault on capitalism.

    Obsessed? No.
    Properly observant of her and her collective ideology.

    Put it this way.
    Given that your lean is Socialist; If you lived in a socialistic society that allowed freedom for alternative ideologies to be expressed and be elected within that society (something that wouldn't happen), you too would be as observant of someone elected who was expressing an ideology opposed to the one you currently lived under.
