It's the way we're wired,

No matter what the anti-Capitalists tell you, we as humans are by nature Capitalists. For instance, once we reach 18 years of age we want freedom from our family, when it rains for days we want the sun to come out, and whenever we have to work with a unpleasant person we long for the day when we no longer have to. So what does all that have to do with Capitalism? Freedom. We want our individual freedom. That's what Capitalism does, it acknowledges that individual freedom is what creates the best standard of living. So it's not the longing of the greedy, the rich, and the famous that makes up Capitalist principles; it's the longing of the human spirit. It's the way we are wired.
