Freemarket capitalism does not have intellectual property or borders it hurts whores a lot

Are you retarded? You know what a whore is, right? How do they have anything to do with IP? Are you maybe thinking of porn and confusing it with prostitution?

BTW you still haven't answered what time preference is, did you even study finance ever?

i don't really see state capitalism and welfare capitalism as true capitalism

the latter is a mixed economy with the welfare side of things clearly influenced by socialist principles. they were the first to suggest this sort of shit. still capitalism yes but capitalism mixed with other stuff rather than a type of "pure" capitalism

and state capitalism is just a meme of people trying to pass off the blame for the USSR being a hellscape. the capitalist process necessarily requires the means of production be private

pure capitalism doesn't really exist though (because it's fucking dumb)

good quote from Keynes:

Capitalism is the extraordinary belief that the nastiest of men, for the nastiest of reasons, will somehow work for the benefit of us all.

Capitalism is good it keeps the poor, stupid people at the bottom while the smart people become rich. It’s survival of the fittest.

This is why I say fuck capitalism

It isn’t a philosophical debate to many of us

It’s real life

true but when i attack capitalism im attacking capitalist principles at play in (what's always inevitably gonna be) a mixed economy

if you establish that even the unachievable ideal is retarded, then it follows pretty easily that trying to work towards it, or applying principles of it just cuz it brings us closer to the promised land, are retarded goals

an example is minarchists who recognise that anarcho-capitalism is completely impossible, but still see it as an unattainable goal, so they say less regulation and less government is always better basically no matter what. you can't argue that absolutely no regulation is impossible because they already agree with that; you have to demonstrate that their ideological promised land would utterly retarded even if it was achievable

A completely free market is fundamentally impossible because it would require an absence of a state, but no state = criminal organisations, militias, whatever else have free reign to disrupt the free market.
Its tge generalization of the tolerance paradox which i call the vintologi power law.
