    What kind of idiotic drivel is this? What is it supposed to mean? Where did you get these numbers and how do they possibly relate to capitalism? Anyone can make up a list, especially one that has no basis or function. Why don't you use your time for something useful and meaningful like getting good grades in high school?

    You already posted this today which means you are violating YA's Term's of Use.

    Also, almost nothing on that list has anything to do with capitalism so instead of just mindlessly copying this from whatever website you people always copy and paste this thing from to post it here why don't you try using that spongy thing between your ears for a change?

    1. tell me how capitalism is the cause of ALL of these.

    2. Do you have nothing better to do with your life than make this list? Go get a job instead of staying home to complain about stuff

  • This list is ridiculous. Hungry children in 1990? Rwandan genocide? Are you freaking kidding me? Nazi Holocaust? Excuse me? Libyan war? WTF????

    Wow, buddy. you need to take some medication right away because you are suffering from severe, and I mean severe schizophrenia. Nobody could possibly make those link without being seriously deranged.

    8 years ago you think you're gonna get a different answer if you post the same thing more then once? The first time I assumed you were just a liberal moron. Now I have to conclude you are a troll.

    Economic systems don't kill people, people kill people. This is true for both capitalism and communism. And if someone figured out how to get communism to work in a democracy (actually work, not the way we've seen it in the past) I'd be the first to support it. I mean it.

    You think World War 2 was started by capitalism? Are you just naming disasters and attributing it to capitalism?

    Free trade between 2 people never killed anybody.

    Capitalism does not carry a gun but a Communist government carries a lot of guns.

    No,,,,And how does anything of what you posted have to do with capitalism?

    Equating wars to famines and cigarettes is ignorant.
