    Under capitalism you don't get a penny until you first produce or give something that other people want to buy more than anything else in the world. In short, capitalism is based on and teaches giving.

    Liberalism or socialism is based not on giving but rather on receiving an entitlement before you give or contribute anything to society.

    Ask yourself which system is mostly likely to produce loving people who think of others before themselves.

    a perfect example of a liberal pretending to be superior when he cant explain why he is superior. His mind is not occupied thou he pretends to himself it is.

    Do you actually believe this or are you just trying to screw with people?

    Can you say if it is true or false and why?

    If not admit to being a liberal and go away.

    I know you are not deliberately trying to be funny but lordy mercy, your statements are so flawed it is hard to even pick a place to start. For one it is apparent your definitions for the terms you used are non-standard TP speak so what is the use in tearing them to pieces? Capitalism and love have no business being in the same sentence.

    I think you're confusing "love" with prostitution. So you're saying no one is deserving of "love" unless they offer you a good or service - that it's CONDITIONAL? That's the farthest thing away from "love" that I can think of. Capitalism will never promote good will and society... it's based solely on greed. Democracy cannot even exist within unbridled capitalism.

    do you have a reason to say that?? Or is it merely a liberal feeling. Having reasons does not even occur to liberals does it?
