RE: The Power Of NO

in #philosophy4 months ago

Yes, in capitalism, anyone has the ability and capacity to say no. When you reach a point of economic stability, you are free to chase whatever dreams you choose. If you want to live off the land, go ahead. If you want to invent something that will improve the well being of billions, go to it!

If you want to go vegan and never harm a sentient being, go do it. There is nothing to stop you.

Capitalism is creating new wealth each and every day. As we become more wealthy, our ability to do things grows. It is a self reinforcing cycle. This is how we have destroyed famines and extreme poverty from almost everywhere.

So inaccurate, if anything has grown through capitalism is the inequality that riches are distributed with.

I do agree you need resources to get things done, however, there are many kinds of resources and they do not all come from the pockets of those who play real-life monopoly.
