Capitalism drives art. How do you guys come up with this stuff? The Getty Museum was and is funded by OIL. The Guggenheim Museum was funded by LEAD refining. Art is funded by the wealthy. Opera, Theater, movies.

Is there any art worth a shit coming from any socialist country? Even computer games, which can be considered a form of art, come from mostly capitalistic countries. What movie has come from Greece or France or Spain that is any good?

You guys are wack.

No, when a man goes to work in a Capitalist society all beauty is removed from his heart.. his achievements are measured in dollar amount only.

You can't get everything handed to you in life

No, but it sure seems I could easily get everything taken from me.. by you greedy capitalists.

Good God, everyone is greedy. It is an inherent nature of man, even you are greedy.

I disagree.

The world is not full of terrible people .. no sir . no sir.

In fact I believe if the right people were at the helm we would have complete fairness across the land.. because they would see to it that it happens .. straight from the goodness in their hearts .. they would defend righteousness and honor.. where as the criminals today at the helm .. have no honor.. none.. excuse me but I have once thought all people were inherently good.. I have been mistaken .. people are not all inherently good .. and when treachery becomes available to them ..they will seek it out.. and grasp it with all the love in their heart.

You're idea of "fairness" is nothing but laziness, you don't want to work for the things you want, that's how the world works. All this redistribution of the wealth crap affects people who are not super wealthy.

You either have beauty in your heart or not. The economic system he toils under has no effect.
