: : Capitalism has at least three basic beliefs: private property the market and personal responsibility.

: : It's all a matter of the personal choices we make in life, not some Government telling us what we can and can't do. That's what capitalism has over communism.

: 'Personal choices' indeed. Social relations in class society demonstrate that one class has the advantage over another. Force creates the situation---and force can reverse it.

And here we cut to the chase; Those who support Communism/Socialism create out of whole cloth definitions to suit their purposes while dismissing the definition that others have. Their right, we're wrong. End of discussion.
The solution is force, violence when and as necessary. Why? Because capitalists have 'forced' proletariats to sell their labor to them. How can that be? Well, apparently because people have to work to eat and it is somehow wrong for people to provide their own means of providing that food for themselves.
It becomes a 'class' struggle only because Marx says so. In real life people are free and should be free to make their own decisions and live w/ them.
Envy is very unbecoming.
