Thread: Evil Capitalists

  1. #1

    Default Evil Capitalists

    There was once an evil capitalist named Steve who loved to wear a top hat, sweater vest and used a cane. Steve was the baron of a big company that produced widgets. Steve happened to have the only factory in the entire town of Doltsville and almost the entire town worked for him. Because there were no other factories to compete Steve paid his workers very terribly, only minimum wage. These workers had to stay long hours and had very poor working conditions. Steve had found corrupt people in OSHA to pay off so they overlooked the poor working conditions. And since everyone in the town relied on Steve's factory to make a living no one said boo about it.

    So these workers became poorer and poorer as Steve bought the rest of the businesses in town and started rasing the price of everything. While Steve got fatter and fatter...

    This story while not true, is an apt example of why Capitalism is so evil...

    I see my Socialism analogy hit a big hot button. It's common sense.
    Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof.

    Socialism is a failed model. Sorry you don't possess the brains to admit it.

    Those people were pretty dumb to work there. Corrupt government agencies like OSHA a re a great example of how government regulation doesn't work and crates system that is anything but free or fair.

    Oh, get off it. Any student of history knows socialism eventually falls on itself because history tells us that. You want some books to read? I'd be glad to give you a list. here is a little recent history to start with.

    Ask for the list Harry. We'll have a field day with it!!!!
