Capitalism is a system of making the masses believe they can obtain everything they need and desire through merit of effort. Communism is a system of making the masses believe they can obtain everything they need and desire through virtues of fairness.

Both are coercive and false ideologies, perpetrated to achieve the compliant docility of those masses, by the super-rich, who have obtained everything they need and desire 10,000-fold, through rapacity, violence, murder, theft, stealth, deception and false allegiance to perceived established institutions.

None of those things are possible in truly free market capitalism through voluntary exchanges without force. Monopolies aren't possible in this system. People should vote with their money.

"None of those things are possible in truly free market capitalism through voluntary exchanges without force."

What a valuable insight. To which I might add the following:

"None of those things are possible in the realization of God's kingdom on earth, where every man, woman and child are born again in Christ, and living in the light of divine grace, forgiven of original sin."

If that's what you as an individual wants to believe, don't force it on me.

Just an illustrative statement, not my actual position.

It is a rhetorical embellishment on the same sentiment conveyed by the saying: "if wishes were horses, then beggars would ride."
