    everyone is free to do what they like WITHOUT invading anybody elses freedom

    But how am I gonna get someone to work for me without invading their freedom to choose to do what they want?

    Hell no, man. No one will work at my shop if they’re allowed to do what they want.

    Basic needs should be covered (except if you refuse to contributr anything at all).

    Fuck yeah man! That’s how we do it! That’s what gets people working for me - the threat that not doing so will put ‘em on the street! That’s what I’m talkin’ about!

      By offering them something in return…? Money for example, from which one can buy nice things.

      Not contributing anything at all wont work in any system or sosciety. Or in what system can I lay in bed all day and get everything I need for free?

        Who says I should do that? It’s my prerogative to do what I can to make money. Don’t try and regulate my ambition, you totalitarian communist.

        Absolutely nowhere, I say! Only people with gumption deserve to live!

          You can do what you like but you asked me how to get people working for you so I made a proposal.

          Do you actually have a point or are you just being ridiculous because you have no arguments?

            I have plenty arguments. They were all written down for me by Adam Smith and improved by Milton Friedman.

              Whats your point? I explained why I find capitalism to be a fair system and further elaborated on what I concidered “fair”. What are you trying to say or are you just trolling?

                I also agree it’s fair. It fairly allows me to extract value from people as I sit back and do nothing. That’s the pursuit of happiness in action, baby!

                  It sounds like you basically just described retirement, and I see nothing wrong with that. I’m investing in my future so that someday my capital increases to the point that I can live off the proceeds. I absolutely don’t want to work until I die.

                    Lmao no. I described ownership of private property. I described being able to own something, and get paid from people using it! The best scam in the world. Did you know you can just buy homes and get money from the people that wanted to buy it, yet not have to sell it to them? It’s fucking marvellous - they live there, make it their home, and pay you for the privilege! And you get to be called a lord for doing this!
