He's wrong. Capitalism is based on free and mutually beneficial trade between consenting individuals.

I think he means capitalism where it exploits many so one becomes rich, which is imperialism, the highest form of capitalism.

Expoits? Employees of companies are paid for their work and are employed under a contract that they agreed to. Capitalism is based on concentual mutually beneficial relationships between adults called employment. Their is no exploitation, your paid what your work is worth.

Perhaps now, but during the Industrial Revolution, no.

That's debatable. Even back then employment was voluntary and people were paid for their labor. Wether they were paid enough i.e. Paid what their labor was worth is debatable. I will say that work conditions weren't great and niether was pay but I don't know if idd call it exploitation.

In any case, may I ask who will benefit, but who will suffer?

I don't think anyone suffers.

Oh, and here's a lovely list of the things the earth has survived, happily provided by a staunch capitalist:

Might want to check spelling, comrade.

Great quote and great poster though!

I bet Michael Parenti belches this gas while enjoying all the benefits of capitalism, such as heating and AC, clean water and safe food, medicine and healthcare, and all the other things that only exist because of a large carbon footprint.

He should read "Return of the Primitive" for a glimpse of his...utopia.

First of all no one on the planet other than the most extreme primitivists think we should deindustrialise.
Second that if we keep increasing pollution levels it's only going to lead to more problems
Third It's a false dichotomy to say we have to choice between polluting and medical care or going back to nature and dying from a broken leg.

And my comment was aimed more at his gas on capitalism than at his enviromania.

"First of all no one on the planet other than the most extreme primitivists think we should deindustrialise." 

Reducing our carbon footprint even the slightest and "getting back to nature" can only be done by de-industrialization.   The environazis have always had a problem with wanting to have their cake and eat it too.

"Second that if we keep increasing pollution levels it's only going to lead to more problems" 

That would be more than hot gas if every "global man-killer" event hadn't already come and gone and the environazis were always on the wrong side.  They can't expect us to keep believing they're not full of shit when their warnings keep proving false.

"Third It's a false dichotomy to say we have to choice between polluting and medical care or going back to nature and dying from a broken leg."  

I strongly advise you to read "Return of the Primitive", because it shows what the world would be like if we follow the environazis die-hard views on how to treat nature.

I would reply but you lost any real point you had when you used the term environazis
sonrouge's avatar
Always an excuse, gasbag.
Party9999999's avatar
What's the point you've made your mind already, you compared tree huggers to the most monstrous people in history.

Considering their hatred for man, I would think it's a fitting label.
Party9999999's avatar
If they really hated humanity wouldn't they tell us to keep pumping toxins into the atmosphere.

A good one.  By the way, ones that are about this size or even smaller, I find easier to use than the larger ones.  Keep them coming, please.
