I never said for people to not strive to have their own business. I even said that people should have there own business if they possibly can.
i didnt suggest that you did
If one is participating in the capitalistic society, then one has to play by their rules.
With that said, that does not mean they are the best rules to play by.
And it does not mean that capitalistism is not parasitic just because one has their own business and niche in the capitalistic society.
capatilism is a THEORY in ACTION. the Actions that ones partake in in carrying out their perception of theory is what is the problem. Mengistu was a 'socialist'/ Chavez is a 'socialist'...one is implementing Actions for the good of the people based on the Socialist Theory. the other acted in a manner that was solely meant to empower himself and those around him.
Until people have equal access to resources, then capitalism will always benefit most, the ones with access to those resources.
what type of resources are you referncing. you may have access to the resource of water, but if you dont have the ingenuity to build a boat or buy a boat, you're going to have adifficult time trying to fish.
America knows that once a country goes to a capitalistic society, they will have no choice but to deal with them because CAPITAL will be greatest importance and not the SOCIETY.
why cant we CREATE our OWN capital?
This is why they always trying to force capitalism on other countries.
which is worse capitalism or corruption. if not for corruption would we be in a situation where we can be FORCED to do anything?
Slowly but surely, that country will be brought down to its knees if I doesnt agree to the terms of dealing with America be it through propaganda and/or economic sanctions.
why? africa has enuff resources to feed the world. whether africa was run by socialist or capitalist, if we acted in a manner that respected human rights and african blood, then all the sanctions in the world could not put a dent in the economic infrastructure of africa.
America is like the Mob, they will bleed you for money and resources until you are bone dry. Then they move on to find another patsy.
ok...then dont deal with the MOB! america is not Almighty God. we do not have dictated by the whims of america. a unified africa would have no use for america except as a medium by which to export our goods manufactured and disstributed on our own terms.
I dont think there is anything wrong with exposing the ills of capitalism.
there is nothing wrong with exposing the ills of anything. but i question solutions framed in 'fight the capitalist system' if ones have not detailed what they are fighting with and their strategy for victory.
It is not hypocritical to do so if you live and work within that capitalistic system.
it isnt? why not? what happened to free-will?
There is not much of practical alternative here in babylon.
relocate to a cooperative/communal area in america if ones dont have the resources to leave the country. grow your own food. barter. dont pay taxes. live off the land. these are all practical alternatives...however they may not be COMFORTABLE alternatives, but the options are there, most that espouse alternative economic systems are unwilling to live in such a manner,yet they talk a good game.
And as far as changing things, if I cannot, then hopefully I will help educate a youth who will.
thats a blessing
I do not work for free. I dont get much for what I do either. But for I there is a trade off. I am doing something to positively help and contribute to InI society.
if you do not work for free then you are a capitalist. potentially a disgruntled unwilling one, but a capitalist nonetheless.
So being pimped by the shitstem dont bother I as much because I see it as benefiting US.
only whores can be pimped idren. the I Selassielive is a KING seen.
But what about the millions of black people working menial jobs in which the only benefit they see is to the ones in power?
up ye might race you can accomplish what you will.
I think they have a right to complain as well.
complaints have never filled a belly.
Give thanks for the reasonings.
