The Kids are Socialists Because Capitalism is Dickslapping the Planet
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, for your viewing displeasure, the single worst thing I read this week. (And I've read an article about a couple who claims they can survive without food and water!)
There is so much wrong in this socialist diatribe that I'm not sure where to begin but the beginning:Capitalism doesn’t have a plan, you know. It only goes in one direction and it doesn’t care what you want.
No. By it's very nature, capitalism needs to care about what you want because it's about exchanging goods and services. If a business doesn't give customers what they want, it goes out of business.The most advanced capitalist states are literally at the stage of collapse and yet we deny that perhaps the problem is capitalism.
Things may be bad, but they're not that bad. The world is not falling apart.
Everything from violent crime to armed conflicts to worldwide poverty has been on the rapid decline for decades.Capitalism is a system that we can prove with any science is fucking the planet and yet the rich can convince most this is progress.
The planet may have problems, but overall, the environment have been improving.Capitalism not only eats babies, it makes sure those babies suffer horrific and needless deaths first because suffering is less costly than care.
I'm assuming she's referring to the infant mortality rate and how America allegedly has the worst in the world. This simply isn't true. The only reason our rate is higher than other countries is because we count stillborn deaths as infant deaths
. If we didn't, our rates would be comparable to other developed countries.Capitalism wants your parents to die long, drawn-out, painful deaths from preventable diseases because managing slow, painful death is a hugely profitable enterprise employing tens of thousands of people.
Fewer people are dying from preventable diseases now more than ever. Most leading causes of death in America
such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and accidents have seen a major drop within the past 40+ years. If anything, Americans are living longer and healthier lives.Capitalism is why there are six empty houses in this country for every homeless person but thousands still freeze to death.
No. That's because of the government-created housing bubble. Mises broke this down in four easy steps
1. The Federal Reserve cut interest rates to as low as 1% so that after inflation we had negative interest rates.
2. As a result, mortgage rates fell to an all time low.
3. Low rates caused borrowing and lending to explode, particularly in real estate. For example, commercial banks more than doubled the amount of real-estate loans they made.
4. All these low interest loans had to be extended to people with worse credit ratings and this increased the demand for homes and other real-estate assets. It should not be surprising that home prices skyrocketed. Click on the link below to the Real Estate Roller Coaster:Capitalism is why we waste 40 percent of our food while children die of starvation.
No. That's because government regulation
makes it costly and cumbersome for super markets and other businesses to donate their food, and thus they throw it all away instead.Capitalism is why 200 species went extinct today.
First, I call bullshit on that statistic because global extinction rate estimates
vary so wildly. Plus if that stat were true, then the entire planet would be dead in a single year.
Just today, it was announced that the Yellowstone Grizzly Bear was removed from the endangered species list. The past decade alone has seen many animals removed from the list: humpback whales, giant pandas, manatees, and tigers, just to name a few.Capitalism is why we’re all going to war for oil under the North Pole.
Most experts agree that both electric cars and cheap renewable energy sources will cause fossil fuel growth to halt worldwide by 2020
. As solar and wind energy costs decrease
, fossil fuel and coal consumption is going to decrease likewise. The free market seems to be pushing that transition just fine.Capitalism is why your kid is going to die in a water riot.
Excuse me? Have you seen Venezuela? That socialist country is literally on the brink of collapse due to shortages of all kinds ranging from food and water to electricity.Capitalism is the state religion of sociopaths.
No. Statism is the state religion of sociopaths.If your kid is a Socialist, at least you raised a kid with a fucking heart. If you’re not a Socialist, I don’t even know where to start.
I'm not socialist because I know what Venezuela is. I doubt this stupid woman can find it on a map.
