Not trying to start discussions, just looking for some reasoning from capitalists, and I don't know many in the real world so I'm forced to come here, where capitalists seem to grow on trees. Which step do you think doesn't logically follow for each thing? Thing 1: On Problems (0/Given: the global economic system at the moment can be defined as fundamentally capitalistic.) 1. Economics is the primary driving force of all developments in human society-- cultural conventions, political and social structures, belief systems, etc. 2. Therefore, all/most aspects of a society are drawn from economic factors. 3. This includes problems. 4. Because of the given, we can therefore reason that the world's problems are the result of capitalistic economic structures. Thing 2: On Values (0/Given: The conceptual rights a human being should have, in an ideal society, should reflect human need.) 1. Law is a construct; this construct should reflect the rights that a society agrees human beings should have. 2. Only when these rights can first and foremost reflect human need are met should law extend beyond human need. 3. When laws protect the ability to restrict human need, they fail to fulfill the rights of humanity. 4. Therefore laws that restrict human need should be changed to reflect human rights, which in an ideal society reflect human need. Thing 3: On Action (0/Given: Preventing systems of oppression is more important than preserving order or peace in situations in which that oppression breeds more violence or damage than would be required to prevent it) 1. A setting in which there are people with more power than others is a hierarchy. 2. Hierarchies are oppressive by definition. 3. Hierarchies are resistant to their own destruction as is natural to anything. 4. Therefore, change through the network of the oppressive hierarchy is impossible. 5. Given the above, however, change is still preferred under the assumption that it will not be more destructive than the hierarchy itself, and therefore, assuming it is not, action against the system of oppression is preferable to inaction or continued attempts at changing the hierarchy from within.
