Capitalism is classically liberal, yes. What of it?

Whether it is the best ism interests me very little. It's like theists arguing over which of their gods is better; I repudiate the whole mess.

Because nihilism is the best ism?

Nihilism is correct, because every other ism is denialism.

No, not because of nihilism. I repudiate the whole mess because it is outside of my interest. What is any political system to me? I do not find my interest in abstract political theories. As for the material systems, there are none; there is only a complex network of relatively empowered beliefs and preferences held by individuals. I am helpless against the tide of history, as any person is. So I find my concern in my immediate relations to others, and I navigate those relations according to my pleasure and without regard to any system.

Perhaps this practice is nihilistic in some sense, but I do not adopt the practice for the sake of nihilism. Given what nihilism is, I could not do so even if I wanted to. If I am a nihilist, then it is an incidental fact of my existence among others; I am a nihilist in the same way that a rock is a rock: not by effort, but as a brute fact and by happenstance.

The assertion of a liberal capitalist that their own system is the best is not evidence that its the best.

Now go ahead and say I'm racist for disagreeing with a brown person, as if thats supposed to be relevant to me because I'm generally left wing in thought.

It's evidence that Capitalism is Liberal.

She's black, not brown, and from Somalia.

Capitalism is "liberal" in origin, yes. Not all capitalism is liberal though, in fact most of it is not. This is quite relevant to the discussion I was just having with that big, fat retard Amarel. To imply that Marx's concept of "Communism" is the same thing as the results of failed or false attempts at it, its no different than calling a plutocracy or kleptocracy a laissez-fair, free market economy because they are capitalism. Except the right wing way of labeling communism is worse because at least plutocracy and kleptocracy are technically capitalism, whereas state capitalism and fascism are the precise opposite of anarchy and egalitarianism.

People don't come in true black technically, as far as I know. "black" people are technically brown.

Oh, well thanks for letting us know you racist clown. Here's what your fuhrer was saying about Somalia at his last campaign rally:-

Isn't it strange how you're a vile racist right up until you need a token black person to spread your propaganda for you?

Exactly. Notice how he's deliberately picked a quote from a black woman, too. The way this scumbag shoves his propaganda in your face all day just nauseates me.
