Capitalism by antisocialsocialist Capitalism by antisocialsocialist
Capitalism- the repalcement of a warm, loving deity with cold hard cash. Please tell me what you think- I'm fairly new to DA, and slightly less new to Photoshop.

Capitalism is simply the idea that we should not use violence to solve nonviolent economic problems. What people get in their heads to do with money, or their attitude towards it, is completely irrelevant to what capitalism is.

Capitalism is simply the private ownership of the means of production. It is amoral in that regard.

Rather, but it depends by in large on the non-initiation of force.

It depends on capital being owned privately. It makes no claims to how that is achieved.

That is up to the individual, with their own morals they have learned from the various layers of society they grew up in.

Ultimately, yes. Property belongs to whoever most people agree it does, or to whoever has all the guns to enforce it how they like. It's either an inter-subjective consensus, or some kind of fiat. I prefer inter subjective consensus, obviously, since I trust it to eventually reach some kind of productive equilibrium.

You prefer. Though you are not everyone. Meaning the only way for that to be the case all the time (both in your ideal future and the real past) everyone has to feel that same way. Which as we know has not happened, and shows no indication of ever changing.

It's what has always happened. It's what's happening right now, particularly when you consider that the system of fiat we have is pretty much universally accepted.

It is in no way the history of the species.

System of fiat universally accepted? Elaborate.

Hi. I run this here little anarchist/anti-authoritarian artists group called The Red and Black Artists Coalition. We basically collect any and all subversive type artwork and display it together in one gallery so that all the artists involved may get better exposure and have the support of like-minded people.

I was wondering if I could add this particular piece of art of yours to our gallery.

I hope you get back to us soon. :D

I'm not very religious either, the meaning was intended to be that money-worship is becoming sort of a religion itself. I suppose that i could have made that clearer.

(On the work): Good job! Photoshop can be a very deep but powerful tool. You seem to have a pretty good handle on it so far.

(On the meaning): Iím not a religious person at all; truth and belief are two totally different things. I class religion and deities into the same group with mythology and magic. Itís quite ironic though that this piece to me portrays what religion is in itís truest form; A way for the cunning and deceitful to use fictional beliefs to prey on the hopelessly weak minded to gain money and power.
