You posted "Stop Shouting "Greed". You sound like a socialist.
Greed is the desire to have more for ourselves and our family. That is capitalism. It's what drives our economy. It is human nature, and what all of us want. (Well almost)
In a true capitalist system, the ones who do very well, do not earn their fortunes at the expense of others, or against their will. I applaud the successful ones that operate legitimately.
The biggest problem is "Envy". The desire to have what someone else has.
There are some who want to confiscate what others have earned for re-distribution to those who have not earned it. I'm all for a safety net for the truly needy, but it should not be too comfortable for the capable.
Capitalism isn't perfect, but it is far superior to all other economic systems ever tried in the history of the world, because human nature drives it."
That is one of the BEST posts I have seen!
