    This is an insulting story opponents of capitalism tell themselves about those who like capitalism, to justify looking down on us, much like "Atheists are actually those who are mad at God." It has...

    And I'd say it has squat to do with what I wrote. Show your work.


    Indeed so; but nobody here claimed that capitalism is some sort of utopian ideal. I didn't even advocate capitalism; the point...
