: Capitalism was around long before communism,(Smith was 100 years before Marx) and it always was the opposite of socialism.

Hmmm, a misinformed youngster me thinks, Christ came before Smith and I even regard Smith as radically anti-capitalist.

: What? Capitalism is the most fair system ever, because everyone has an equal chance to succeed. Even poor kids can go to school and try to learn, so they can probably make it in the market. To legally make your way to wealth is not selfishness, it's human nature.

That's how the theory goes yes but have you read the papers recently?

: What????? The more money you make, the more money you have to pay the government and the less your tax deduction is. The capitalist class gets punished more than most workers and consumers. I do agree with the fact that taxes are way to high.

I think this is just shit but I'm more than Glad that you have seperated the Capitalist Class from the Workers and Consumers, your system rest upon convincing workers and consumers to become capitalists if you continue to seperate them as you have done it can only go against you.
