Q: What is the difference between someone who believes in the power of capitalism or the "free market" to be fair and good and any other Religious zealot?
Having the government regulate the market, protecting big corporations from competition and the central bank run a centralized monetary policy favoring the government contractors and the super rich financial corporations and having banks blow up bubbles with fractional reserve banking while being "too big to fail" and FDIC insured is not the free market you stupid imbecile.
The world hasn't had a true pure capitalism yet. And the closest we got ended in 1913 with the FED. Ever since then the world has nothing else but socialism, corporatism and some version of fascism even to this very day. If you don't know this, you have no idea about the reality of the situation.
Haha, completely ignored my post. I agree with you (although I'd add the war of 1812 proved to banks they were an arm of the US government), but I think you will likely have little success in convincing people who think differently with that approach. Maybe your personal experience differs from mine?
