    small govt means small monopoly while large govt means large monopoly. Now do you understand why our founders were conservative? Are you conservative now that you understand?

    can you say why its not appealing or is it just a liberal feeling?? A liberal will not even know that a reason is necessary.

    The term capitalism was coined and is mostly used by its critiques. Still, if you insist on a definition, we need to begin with the understanding of what constitutes a property right: it is the right to options with regards to some good, or service. The distinguishing feature of a capitalist system is that most of such rights can be transferred voluntarily in part or whole.

    The core question is always who decides -- with what information and under which incentives. In a capitalist system, the answer is that most choices are diffused across very many people.

    let's see if I can do 4 times better with 4 times fewer words:

    Capitalism is when most property is privately owned and people are free to buy and sell it.
    Socialism is when most property is public and govt monopoly dictates its use.

    very poor definition of capitalism. Capitalism is when people are free from govt interference to own property and free from govt interference to exchange property. Now do you understand?
