Capitalism isn't a "system", but rather, an idea. The idea of not stealing the property of others or initiating harm. But if it was a "system", it would be the best system we've ever had.

Systems predicate action (or else). Capitalism doesn't predicate action, but rather, inaction. Don't initiate force on others.

Nothing about the idea of capitalism dissuades the use of force, if anything it increases it. Theft and violence exist under all economic models, even by those in govt/law enforcement

The use of force itself isn't bad. The initiation of force is bad. Self defense is good. Saying self defense is bad is both wrong, and blaming the victim.

Self defense isn't bad, but it isn't always good. Same with the use of force.

I'm only saying that the ability to amass wealth encourages theft and violence, it doesn't discourage it

Saying self defense isn't always good is saying its sometimes bad. That's wrong, and that's victim -blaming. Its always okay to defend yourself using the same force of the assailant

Lol so are you saying it's good to physically defend yourself against law enforcement or military? That's very wrong, you're openly advocating police-assisted suicide.

Unfortunately, most people have to do what the authority says due to current laws. Tread lightly.

No matter what I suggest everyone act peacefully.

Don't gaslight cops either. It's a bad idea.
replied · 101d
Why are you defending cops? They should be treated like the animals they are.
replied · 101d
That may be true but if you gaslight them too much, they will snap and pull the trig.
replied · 101d
You have the right to treat cops politely. That doesn't mean anyone else is morally required to. You don't need to be scared of them when you're not around or in danger of them

Don't spit on a cops face and tell them you have a medical problem. (Even if you don't)
replied · 101d
It doesn't make sense to try to defend yourself if you know you will fail, with significantly worse consequences. But if you could succeed, then go for it, they're not good people.

Ok, so there are circumstances where your argument is flat wrong. Thank you for clarifying that not everything that matters is objective truth lol
replied · 101d
What circumstances? If you can defend yourself from a cop and do so safely, then do it.

And why would something matter to you if you knew it was objectively incorrect?

This is terrible advice. You’ll wind up in legal trouble, injured, or dead. You always comply with law enforcement, then let the courts decide if it was unjust.
replied · 101d
Its not advice. Its truth. Do what you want. But you're not morally required to do anything against your rightful consent.
replied · 101d
That sounds like “sovereign citizen” bullshit. Avoid the hassle and legal trouble. Just comply and fight it out in court. You might get $$ out of it instead of getting shot.

Its your right to decide. You have the right to kill anyone threatening your life.

Personal property laws are a part of a fair/healthy capitalist economy, but they aren't always respected. I think you're confusing capitalism with its fundaments
replied · 102d
I also believe that owning assets should NOT interfere with the well being of others. If you own something and it causes other people to die, is it worth owning?
replied · 102d
That doesn't make any sense. Owning something can't cause someone to die.

For example, if you invest in tobacco companies, you are making money off of cancer.

"Laws" have nothing to do with capitalism. Capitalism is private ownership of the means of production, i.e. voluntary relations / free trade
