Follow me on this.
The reason capitalism has been so successful is because it acknowledges AND INCORPORATES human nature into it's basic bylaws. Humans will always operate in their best interests and maximize profit. Why fight these natural urges? Just tailor a government and economy around and based in those natural urges.
Communism, on the other hand, "hopes" and "prays" people altruistically do "the right thing" and if you don't, by god, we have camps for the likes of you.
Debate ensues about what "should" be done, but I always like hard core, cold stone instances of empirical proof as to what is the reality of human nature and thus, which economic model is feasible and which is "hopey changey."
Enter the illegal drug trade.
What I LOVE about the illegal drug trade and why I CHEER ON THE DRUG CARTELS is because they are not only empirical proof a government should NEVER get into moral or social issues and merely stick with economic issues, but because they highlight the pure genius and power of the human mind and the individual. The innovation that gives capitalism the ultimate edge over socialism and makes it the defacto/default economic reality.
You morons keep making all the rules you want. Smarter, faster, better, stronger people will subvert you.
