No, I think I'm the opposite.

I have mixed feelings about capitalism in general, but I suppose the fact that I live in a capitalistic society makes me a capitalist no matter my feelings towards it.

Not really. When I meet people that unscrupulously take advantage of every opportunity to get ahead of the next guy with no regard for fairness, I consider those people capitalists. I try not to be like that because I think it would mean I'm an assh*le.

I think it's probably the fairest economic system in theory, but I don't really like how it works out.

Then again, I really don't like what money does to people in general.

Capitalism in America is about who can make the most money, regardless of the environmental, social, or moral cost. Still, even though most people (unfortunately) agree with capitalist ideologies, a true capitalist already has a substantial amout of money, or the means to do so. Unless you're already rich (90% of the country isn't), we aren't really capitalists.

I'm a capitalist.

It's the best system we have... nothing's perfect of course but it's better than the alternatives of depotism and communism...

rock on! yaaay capitalism!
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/23/05 - 3:15:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well yes, in the sense that I think that the scandinavian type of social-capitalism is the best choice currently available.

But no, in the sense that I think we'll eventually outgrow it and come up with something better. Maybe communism will work when humans have grown up a bit. Maybe well come up with some fantastic new way of government.

Yes, I want very much to own my own business.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/23/05 - 3:25:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I'm a capitalist. Free market benefits everyone.

Capitalism is good.

iamnikb is an idiot. You don't need to have money to be a capitalist, just like you don't need to grow a beard to be a communist. Capitalism is about maximizing overall good through the individual pursuit of "selfish" goals, not about taking money and stuffing it back into the system regardless of who gets hurt.

CRYN_OUT, someone I almost respected once, is also an idiot. Claiming to be the "opposite" of a capitalist, while living in the US, wasting money on, and listing her favorite car as the Hummer H2. Learn how to draw.

if you believe in private property, and laws like offer and demand; you are a capitalist... Doesn't mean you're a crook...
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 3/31/05 - 7:32:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
ya, 16 yrs old and a proud capitalist!
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 3/31/05 - 7:09:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't categorize myself as any type really... the USA is a democratic, capitalist society, and I live there. If I were to call myself a Socialist (my personal ideas are closer to socialism), that would be hypocritical of me, because here I am living in a capitalist nation, taking advantage of all it has to offer and suffering from it's pitfalls.

The regime you live under is what you are, because your life supports that government.

I don't know whether I just jump into the conversations late or what, but it seems like whenever I comment, nobody else does, or if they do, it's days later!

I agree with unhailey on this one.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 2:11:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have apathy to Capitalism
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 8:58:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
A capitalist is not necessarily an industrialist. It is simply someone who believes in the basis of a capitalist system, as opposed to say the travesty that is communism. Frankly, those who don't believe in the capitalist system as of now, since there is no better system, are fools who know nothing about economics or sociology. Limited socialism and capitalism can certainly co-exist, while communism and capitalism cannot, obviously.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 9:10:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
I am pro capitalism.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/11/05 - 12:18:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
I live in a capitalist society and use all of its benefits, therefore I suppose I'm a capitalist. But I very strongly feel that everyone has a social obligation to those less fortunate. So maybe that's a little socialist. I guess I'm idealogically between the two. But in actuality, definitely capitalist.

Well, I notice the picture on this question infers capitalists are all hogs and crooks! Capitalism feeds, clothes, cares and uplifts free people of the world, and even those that are not free. Its amazing how one can live in a country like the US, and not appreciate or understand capitalism and all the good it has accomplished! Our nation has produced more medicines, more inventions, more goods, foods and services faster than other countries that have been around for a thousand years!! and we did it all in 240 years! Our farms feed ourselves plus half the world! This is one of the few nations where u can be born into a dirt poor family and end up a movie star, CEO, or govenor of the state!

Everyone's a capitalist in this society.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/26/05 - 5:21:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I am socialist.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 6/30/05 - 8:30:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I like a socialism-capitalist society best. I think it combines the best of both systems.
