Do you have a smart phone? Thank capitalism. You can also thank it for 7/24 water, heat, electricity, hospitals, police, fire department, cable TV, even grocery stores with food.

The real problem with Capitalism is that it’s up to the individual to take care of themselves. Planning for the future doesn’t come natural. You live in a “have it now” economy. Capitalism will serve it you. People have credit card debts because they bought things they couldn’t afford. Materialism is rampant. But capitalism doesn’t make this happen. Individual choices do.

What is troublesome is that if you want to be taken care of, lose free choice, there are some functioning countries like Russia you could move to. Why wreck America?
