none of this shit even matters. there are antagonisms superceding the socialThis is exactly why you shouldn't fall in the trap of using Karl Marx autistic black and white terms Capitalism and Communism which he coined both of them in his book Das Kapital. It's actual basement aspie shit.
but capitalists principles are extremely important in a mixed economy. all agents need clear cut incentives in order to attain socially optimal outcomes for society and (mostly) self-regulating markets are far more efficient than any central planning crap could ever hope to be.true but when i attack capitalism im attacking capitalist principles at play in (what's always inevitably gonna be) a mixed economy
I don't think pure capitalism is an ideal, achievable or not. also this is very black and white thought process imo. if you drink too much water it will kill you so you shouldn't drink enough to stay hydrated. utility isn't a smooth and continuous function of the economic system in play where it goes down the greater the capitalistic characteristics present or vice versa.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
they sound stupidan 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
capitalism = you're allowed to own property and have a life as a citizenCapitalism = private control of capital
Communism = public control of capital
was gonna say more but I enjoy people being ignorant and arguing with meme talking points
