: Capitalism has flaws but it is by far the best thing that we've got!

Why do people use one of the weakest available arguments for private ownership and exchange trade? If you believe capitalism (private ownership and exchange trade) is the best fit to mankind then you would understand its potential consequences and its enemies, rather than just blandly assert the equivalent of "its crap but its better than the other crap". I wonder whether you actually do support full actualised capitalism.

: McSpotlight: I didn't end up arrested; nor did I break any windows. For your information, such trouble as happened only happened after the riot police ran someone down with a van...

(joking) Yes but more importantly that any of that...did you hug, or atleast affectionately stroke, any trees. There are quite a few in London I understand.

McSpotlight: Trees? In the City of London? You've got to be joking; they couldn't earn their keep, so they aren't there any more...
