American capitalism is as intrinsically evil as communism. This isn’t a controversial or centrist position to take. Capitalism and communism are not a dichotomy, as there are a plethora of other systems to choose from. While in the West communism is viewed as a force of evil, and capitalism its opposite, they have more in common than one would think. Both are two sides of the same coin – materialism. Any idea which supposes material ownership is above morality (or in a case where morality is exclusively based on rules pertaining to materialism) is a system in which God and people do not matter. While communism is a system which usually erodes and fails after a certain amount of time, secularist capitalism is a slow and agonizing death. Morality should never be a “free market”, and truly, luxury or greed should never be what dictates economic policy.
