my most unpopular (yet pretty basic) opinion: things that people blame capitalism for in the current era are facets of humankind that in fact vastly pre-date the rise of capitalism in society, an will require a far greater re-engineering effort, whose shape is possibly hidden from sight by strictly anti-capitalist stances


@mala To me part of this depends on what people mean when they use the word "capitalism". Does it mean an actual free market? Does it mean the crony corporatism we have now? Is it just a lazy synonym for "anything leftists dislike"?

For this reason, I basically try to avoid it altogether.
