Thank you for correcting my lazy language. To be fair, though (to myself not to you 😛), I assumed you were yourself conflating the terms, as most people do. I don’t understand capitalism as well as I would like to, but I’m willing to admit it’s an inherently flawed system.

I have a somewhat different view of human nature than you do (fundamentally good, but also deeply damaged, as opposed to being balanced between the two), so if we’re going to have a productive conversation, we’d have to get into that. I don’t blame human nature, I blame the state in which human beings exist now, which is a corruption of the goodness inherent to human nature.
