Capitalism an Introduction by Libcom.orglibcom.org's brief introduction to capitalism and how it works.More Like This
At its root, capitalism is an economic system based on three things: wage labour (working for a wage), private ownership or control of the means of production (things like factories, machinery, farms, and offices), and production for exchange and profit.
While some people own means of production, or capital, most of us don't and so to survive we need to sell our ability to work in return for a wage, or else scrape by on benefits. This first group of people is the capitalist class or "bourgeoisie" in Marxist jargon, and the second group is the working class or "proletariat".

At the risk of sounding left of left, which only a few decades ago was center, I have a couple of issues that are troubling me. The twenty something generation, two of which I am responsible for, has grown up in a culture of endless war. As most kids develop, they start to become aware of society in general at about ten years old, so if you were born in, say 1992, as you reach your twenty first birthday you cannot remember a time when your country wasn't somewhere fighting someone. Peace would seem an odd thing indeed. Add to the fact there is no individual forced involvement with these wars (draft) it's not something kids give much thought to. The only kids aware of our endless war are the ones that can't find work and join the military or are persuaded to join with glamorous marketing images implying warfare is like your favorite video game. Once in, our Faustian military policy makers employ what is referred to as "the back door draft", meaning multiple
