Capitalism wasn't invented

Capitalism was never a system thought up by someone to divide people. It is not a system, it is the natural way that people choose to use money. Therefore, all problems that capitalism poses is created by people, not the system.

Imagine unironically thinking that capitalism is timeless and not less than 500 years old

Fukkin lawl mate. Where do you get the idea that we, or any communists believe that capitalism was invented by some shadowy group of intelectuals? Who on god's green earth defines capitalism by the way people choose to spend there money? How old are you and what board did you come from?

Marx doesn't contradict any of the things you say and in many ways made his mark as a political economist by stating that capitalism is an organically emergent social system and by analyzing the mechanisms by which that process occurred. However, what we understand as capitalism (mass commodity production in a wage system where the allocation of the surplus is the result of private individual decisions) has only existed for a few hundred years, and often side-by-side with other modes of production. Historical materialism is the proposition (and observation) that things have not 'always been the same', that human society can operate in fundamentally different ways at different points in time and that 'human nature' (whatever it is comprised of) has had little influence on the development of society compared to the impact of real material conditions.

Correct
It is not a system, it is the natural way that people choose to use money. Therefore, all problems that capitalism poses is created by people, not the system.
And then you completely missed the point and went full retard.
Hint: Communists aren't idealists. We don't think economic systems just come into existence because they're thought up by someone, rather they emerge from and are based off the material conditions of society which they then go on to shape themselves. Capitalism is also not "how people choose to use money", otherwise every system that has ever existed since the beginning of history is capitalist, which is a premise literally no one except the most delusional American libertarians believe.

i never said i thought that, i was using it to back up my statement that the problems of capitalism are caused by the people

well yeah as i see it as long as money has existed people have been payed different amounts of money depending on how much they want it.

i never said that they were, i was only showing how i came to the conclusion of how all the problems of capitalism are caused by the people

well if the people are the problem, the problems will still be there even if the system is different.

Seems like semantics to me. Every social system is the result of personal decisions.

capitalism is when you trade things
Protip: If someone gives you a definition of capital-ism that doesn't mention capital, it's propaganda.

OP, would you mind reading this sentence:
X didn't happen by intent, therefore X can't bad.
Now, let's put in some word in place of X, and read it again: STDs. Another round, different word: earthquakes. And another round: death by lightning.

capitalism = when people use money and trade stuff

Money and trade have existed in every civilization, including the USSR. You clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

You literally said
Capitalism was never a system thought up by someone to divide people
maybe I said group instead of someone, but that's irrelevant. Nobody believes that capitalism is an economic system that's been designed.

Feudalism was never a system thought up by someone to divide people. It is not a system, it is the natural way that people choose to use gold. Therefore, all problems that feudalism poses is created by people, not the system based around lords exploiting serfs.

if i sell something and i keep the money is that not capitalism?

Dylan Flores

No. That's a market exchange.

Owen Gomez

no it's a sale, or a trade if you will. it has existed for the whole of human history and is not what differentiates capitalism from the rest of history.
That would be the profit motiff, capital accumulation, financism, widespread wage relations among other things.
seriously just hit capitalism on wikipedia, if you are not willing that much fuck off.

No.

Capitalism is a system founded on the institutions of private property, generalized commodity production and capital accumulation and reproduction. Even if, in some hypothetical utopia, property and capital were absolutely evenly shared and commodity production benefited all equally, it would still be capitalism.

venom was never invented, it was created organically by snakes
medicine was invented as a man-made attempt to "improve" things
Therefore we can conclude that you should never take medicine again and drink snake venom instead.
