Capitalism is not intented to be utopian, I don’t think I ever read anything within the founding fathers documents even mention the word capitalism and certainly not uutopia. The term was not used heavily until Marx used it as a pejorative. Capitalism stems from individual property ownership (of all kinds) and the right to buy, sell, trade, make a profit or lose money without interference. Commerce and free trade are outcomes of capitalism as are every new invention in the modern world. You could not read this forum without capitalism. There would be no electricity, no computers, no cars, we would live in the stone age without commerce and profit. Profit and wealth built every civilization on the planet using every resource available at the time of their existence. Let me ask, what has communism ccontributed to the world in the last 100 years?
