Hey by the way to drop this point in another person's lap; there is no true capitalism and there is some socialism intertwined within any as you call capitalism. True capitalism is being a pirate.

It's kind of a metaphor. Capitalism, being driven by the individuals' desires rather than the societies' desires (like communism is theoretically supposed to be), is similar to pirates, because everything a pirate does is for his own good.

At least, I think that's what he's saying.

I don't care if the society around me thrives or not. If I don't tend to myself, I can't be much help to society right?

So I'll rob grocery stores for food, and break into houses for money? I don't think so.

Calling capitalism piracy is just a way to frighten people who don't know enough about it to base an accurate opinion about it. I could call socialism communism to scare people away from it but I'd have to back it up with facts. There's nothing wrong with people looking out for their own and their family's safety and survival in the world, and if that "self-centeredness" and "acting for his own good" is piracy, then I say aye aye to capitalism.

Okay, wow, you guys do realize this whole thread is about political correctness, not opinions on other governmental theories & ideas..? Goodness..
Here's my thing with political correctness.. Names of ethnic groups.
Like... Asian American. Thats a very broad term. Asia is HUGE.
& saying _____ American is just really political correct anyway.
I think we should just be called americans. Smile

No, but my grandparents are from Germany, so I still demand to be called European American. White is offensive to me...

Eurasiamerican Indian?

I'm Irish, Welsh, German, French, Scottish, Scandinavian, and English.

Yes I'm white, white, and more white. You may refer to me as a Gaulic Celtico-germanic American.
But I much prefer to be called "Your majesty".
