“The American Dream” has been twisted to mean that instead of the opportunity to buy a house with money you earned, you are OWED a house to live in even when somebody else built it and furnished it with their own sweat and blood.
Capitalism is the economic system in which opportunity can be seized without preliminary injunction and only requires minimal approval from state and local powers for you to buy and sell goods. When you go to Whole Foods, or Walmart, or the mom-and-pop shop on your street, you’re contributing to Capitalism.
“Big Business” is not the only beneficiary of a capitalist society. “Evil corporations” has become your battle cry, but you’ve forgotten that your friends, neighbors, and loved ones are able to be free today to buy what you want when you need it because of Capitalism.
If you have a job… you’re contributing to capitalism…
