Daily reminder that unless you’re independently wealthy there’s no reason to support capitalism. It’s literally a shorthand for “rich people control every facet of society”. If you’re not rich you’re just a slave to ensure they continue making money and that their position on top is secure. Capitalism even has its own version of rationing, the price system, that ensures that those with the most money have access to everything first.

i am poor, but still believe that a "fair" capitalist system is better than a full capital centered one(like the USA), what i mean by that is, that capitalism creates opportunities and generates riches and in a fair capitalistic society, wealth trickles down to the "poor" who profit from better infrastructure, better food quality, better products better medecine etc.
the problem with the usa is that they went too far, the capital is kept into the hands of the few that literally hate on the poor, they basically lock their money and only use it for them and don't pay taxes or help the country they live in, they create closed communities of rich people and just live between themselves, meanwhile the poor are herded in closed neighbourhood without healthcare or education. ALSO the rich people in the USA don't spend all their money in the US, most buy property in fiscal paradices or send it back to israel.

We are led to believe capitalism creates equal opportunity for everyone to be rich but the statistics show that is far from true.

I hate political points being made through comics because they almost always straw man the argument that they are mocking. The point that people are trying to make when they say "But you're saying this while using a iPhone" is that 1) Socialists completely fail to recognise how much capitalism has helped and quite frankly they are delusional about how much socialism will help them. They are greatly benefiting from capitalism but have 'the grass is greener from the other side syndrome. 2) You are a hypocrite. You are the ultimate stereotypical consumerist. You do not need an iPhone and could have easily bought a much cheaper Android.

>> No.18911628

Are you denying that starvation can't kill?
And yet that "iphones" argument is a strawman itself. I can leave it at that but this is a good flex opportunity. Capitalism is defined by private ownership of the means of production by the capitalist class. Capitalism is not a prerequisite to technological progress. I'm sure you know technology has developed before Capitalism and will develop outside/after Capitalism. However, the Industrial Revolution with increasing complexity and cost of the means of production catalyzed the development of Capitalism. So the "argument" that you can't criticize Capitalism because I think you own an iPhone, which itself can be used to further criticize Capitalism involving planned obsolescence which I wont get into any further, which is a result of technology and labor rather than Capitalism is about the extent of discourse that can be expected from Capitalist, and I don't mean that you own any significant means of production, ideologues.
>*mic drop*

>> No.18911943

The main point that I disagree with is the fact that you completely glossing over the point that the only reason why phones have become so affordable and high quality is because of capitalism. Now of course every technology needs government to make the initial investment and to cover the R&D, but once that's happened there's no reason to not allow private corporations to take the reins. If we had continued with government R&D, the technology would not have been as refined or as cheap.

>Capitalism is not a prerequisite to technological progress
I agree but capitalism helps a lot.

>Industrial Revolution caused capitalism
It caused the capitalism that we know today. It did not create the free market, and it's not like the free market wasn't working before the Industrial Revolution.

>So the "argument" that you can't criticize Capitalism because I think you own an iPhone, which itself can be used to further criticize Capitalism involving planned obsolescence
I don't understand this point at all. People don't need to buy iPhones because of planned obsolescence (which should obviously be illegal). That has absolutely nothing to do with it.
