On Capitalism and Communism

Western capitalism must commence with an enormous act of conquest and theft. Those who want to create a capitalist paradise must be prepared to kill or evict those whose land and wealth they plan to steal. The same must be said about communism (and socialism). Both capitalism and communism are extremely violent and tyrannical Western ideologies. They never lead to the creation of liberty and free markets for all classes of people. The contest between capitalism and communism is a myth propagated by the Western ideologues and politicians. The truth is that these two ideologies thrive by feeding on each other. The communists win support by narrating the stories of the capitalist atrocities, while the capitalists win support by narrating the stories of the communist atrocities. Both ideologies must be rejected.

Because the term “capitalism” has no standard definition referring to a general economic order of society, incoherence and misunderstanding result from using this term without providing a definition.

@ Daniel: I think it is better to reject the word "Capitalism." It is a confused concept. In any case the word "capitalism" was coined by Marx. It is better to model the politics in your country after the ideas of liberty and free markets.
