Quite apart from my pompous, lackluster sloganeering, I still know that toilet paper coms in an endless variety of brand names. Why bother? As long as it is unused, who cares?

It is indeed interesting - and tragicomic at that - that this discussion is based entirely on toilets.
Such a fascinating debate...and to think it all started with my cornball thread title “capitalism is the source of our ills; it must be destroyed!”

My spiritual teacher stated that there will be a monumental wipeout on such a major scale that it will literally transform the human psyche in a deep way. This will eventually allow a new consciousness on this earth....

Humanity will regain it's spiritual connection with source (God), and will understand the need to serve a greater good.
A new life on earth will then become possible.
I respect the opinion of the whole world, but I find it difficult to debate on the subject if it is diverted to more mystical matters, since that is more an act of faith than a rational debate.

It’s not capitalism that does this. We have not had free market capitalism in many decades. Free market capitalism is where there is no government involvement in the market economy. What we have in the US is fascism, communism, and socialism. Pretty much all the same. Most other places are not free market either because of central government and central banking. The ruling class graduallly takes away freedom so slowly that u don’t realize u had been living under socialism which means slavery this whole time.

You're wrong. welfare state is a 100% capitalist idea, Marx wrote about this, warning us of this danger. He advocated for collective property of the means of production. What Ayn Rand misses is that a welfare state is already a totalitarian state. We Communists would call it the Dictatorship of the bourgeoisie because it's main purpose is to protect the interests of the bourgeoisie class, namely the private property of the means of production. This is the main cause of economic and social inequality in the world and prevent people of reaching their full potential as human beings. I could go on with the reasons why capitalist labor prevent us from actually enjoying life and is for most people effectively wage slavery. We are all born equal and should have the same opportunities to follow our dreams.

We already produce much more than we need to have fulfilling lives, and productivity continues to rise, only the profits are all being hoarded by the ultra rich and the workers still receive the same or less and work the same hours as ever.
