Capitalism is the refinement of all the ills of the free market -- such as the "bottom line" being more important than people, the emphasis on using money as the basis for measuring values, and the constant need for more and more that drives the system.

Capitalism is an inhuman force that pushes millions into poverty. It is a force that leads a small group of extremely powerful men to dominate the majority. In the quest for power, the capitalist not only rapes and pillages a few small villages and towns. The capitalist rapes entire markets and nations. This creates resentment for the wealthy. Because of this, the capitalist resents the majority in return, and fears them, too. Capitalists use their resources to isolate and protect themselves from the ever-increasing amount of victims tha they leave behind; they spend more and more on body guards and security to protect themselves from both real and imagined threats.

A capitalist society is a society ruled by money. The poor, which do not have access to the capital, are bantied about by economic forces. They are unwitting stooges, devoid of free will and hope. Capitalism is a society where an extremely small group of people live in unimaginable luxury and elegance while the rest of the world wallows in environmental degradation and increasing squalor. It is a society where the rich and powerful get richer and more powerful. It is a system where the ruling elite use their insider connections to grind the rest of the world under its heels. It is a world of monopoly, insider trading, financial scams and outright theft. Capitalism is an imbalanced mechanism for distributing power where the rich get richer and the poor to get poorer. The Wealthy capitalists use the government to do their bidding, whether they are stealing property from the less powerful by having the government take it over by imminant domain, and handing it over to themselves, or using our military to overthrow a poor nation that uninvites their industries in favor of local businesses.

Capitalism leaves, in it's wake, shattered lives, iniquity, and an uncaring attitude towards people.

An economic system based on private ownership of the means of production, in which personal bling can be acquired through investment of capital and employment of peeps. Capitalism is grounded in the concept of fo' real enterprise, which argues that the man's intervention in the economy should be restricted and that a free market, based on supply and demand, will ultimately maximize consumer dough. These principles were most notably pwned in Adam Smith's treatise, The Wealth of Nations (1776), in which he opposed the prevailing theory of mercantilism. Capitalism has existed in a limited form in the economies of all hoods, but its modern importance dates at least from the Industrial Revolution that began in the 18th century, when bankers, merchants, playas and industrialists (the bourgeoisie) began to displace landowners in political, economic, and social importance, particularly in Great Britain. Capitalism stresses freedom of individual economic enterprise; however, government action has been and is required to curb its playa-hating, which have ranged from slavery (particularly in Britain and the United States), haxors(In Diablo and CS servers), and apartheid (in South Africa) to monopoly cartels and financial fraud. Capitalism does not presuppose a specific form of social or political organization-type shit: the democratic socialism of the Scandinavian states, the consensus politics of Japan, and the state-sponsored rapid industrial growth of South Korea while under military pwnage all coexist with capitalism. Yet despite the capitalist ideal of “hands-off” government, significant government 1337ness has existed in most capitalist nations at least since the Great Depression in the 1930s. In the United States, it exists in the form of subsidies, tax credits, incentives, free hours of AOL, and other types of exemptions. Though private production plays a major role in the economies of Germany and Japan, both nations have centrally planned industrial policies in which bankers, industrialists, playas, pimps, hos and labor unions meet and seek to agree to wage policies and interest rates; these countries reject the idea of letting the bling wholly determine the economy. The collapse of the Soviet Union and its fugly states in Eastern Europe (1989-91) left those countries with a heavy burden, much shit, and an uncertain future, representing a substantial retreat in the power of capitalism's traditional economic opponent, socialism. Also uncertain is the future course of China's economy, in which small-scale capitalism is increasingly allowed within a strictly Communist political deal.

You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States, leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release. The public buys your bull.
Normal guy: "Dude, your company just took a crap but you just bought that mansion! How'd you do it?"

A system of poltical, social, and economic organization, in which, physical force is barred from human relationships. To the extent that it has been tried, its results have been amazing. I am typing this on a computer made by the capitalist system, for instance.
While there has been no example of pure capitalism, America at certain times in history was close, and Hong Kong has been close to pure capitalism. Notice the level of economic develop of these places under capitalism.

Capitalism is a social system based on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which all property is privately owned. Under capitalism the state is separated from economics (production and trade), just like the state is separated from religion. Capitalism is the system of of laissez faire. It is the system of political freedom.
I value individual rights, therefore I promote capitalism.
