  1. “By 1900 the freedom market disappeared.”

    Very good; most people tend to ignore this. Plus, even for those who say that this isn’t capitalism and that Marxism is wrong due to the fact that America really “isn’t capitalist” all I have to say is, is that Marx’s Capital was a critique of Adam Smith’s view on capitalism, on free market capitalism, not necessarily on the capitalism of his day or our day.

  2. Michael Parenti has a very nice way of telling how capitalism does not work in our world. He does this in five second: “Our world is bound in poverty (two seconds for suspense) and our world is dominated by capitalism”. So?

    It’s so simple.
