: Capatilism is not wrong and socialism is not wrong.They both have many good aspects too them.What I find interesting is why human kind was born with the ability for everyone to have his or her own opinion.That is what is wrong.Or is it?

Interesting, however what if you where to awake each morning in the knowledge that because you dont think that cruelty, deviousness, deceit and submissiveness etc. make a good value system and your going to be penalised as a result?

Wouldn't you think there was something wrong then? I mean if whoever it was that wrote 'Anarchy (read capitalism), State and Utopia' was sincere about 'Capitalism between consenting adults' was sincere and not just trying to defend political economy and privilege against all it's victims and a humanist onslaughtthen I'd have a lot of respect for him. If you wish to consent to harmful things then fine, if you concede to buggery or heroine addiction fine but leave me out of it.

What I'm saying is that as a socialist I never gave my consent to be used in the manner I am in the capitalist world, and I never gave my consent to be posioned like the dying environment etc.
