Our military is not as strong as you would expect given the amount of money spent on it because of foreign interventions meant to benefit American capitalism.
First off, lets not throw around words like capitalism if you don't actually know what they mean (and you obviously don't by the way you used it). Two, that is unrelated to the statement and a pathetic attempt at a straw man. Three, our military is not as strong because we are pushing wokism in our military, lowering standards, and encouraging people to be in the military who have no place their. Four, they are so fixated on all of the wokism they forgot that they are a military and have a fucking job to do.
The word capitalism has been thrown around in the American Zeitgeist as if it's synonymous with free trade; it's not. What it's about is the accumulation of wealth into the hands of the few at the expense of the many. And no that is not an unrelated statement, we sunk trillions of dollars into a foreign war and lost 1000s of lives and that is going to discourage people from enlisting in the service. Three, we are realizing that there is more to winning a war than the effectiveness of a soldier on the battlefield (like military intelligence, cyber warfare, etc...). Fourth, part of winning conflicts is alliances and having good public relations is part of that.
Yeah like I said, don't use words that you don't know what they mean. Capitalism is by definition the belief that wealth can be generated (it can), that you should not have to buy or sell what you don't want or to whom you don't want, the government has no right to tell you what you can and cannot buy or sell, and that if you specialize you can increase productivity and wealth while decreasing costs. That is capitalism.
No it isn't and you're spewing cold war propaganda intended to white wash capitalism and a vain attempt to make it synonymous with freedom (capitalism is antithetical to freedom). What you described is a system of free trade and that can happen when the means of production is controlled in an autocratic (capitalistic) manner or democratic (socialistic) manner.Government control ≠ socialist.
"Capitalism is an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit. Central characteristics of capitalism include capital accumulation, competitive markets, a price system, private property and the recognition of property rights, voluntary exchange and wage labor. In a capitalist market economy, decision-making and investments are determined by every owner of wealth, property or production ability in capital and financial markets whereas prices and the distribution of goods and services are mainly determined by competition in goods and services markets." definitions, read them before using the term (or keep looking like a fucktard, I really don't care (your not particularly smart and I doubt that will ever change).
Oh because Wikipedia says it, it's true LMAO. Well if you read the article about Market Socialism, you would know that the free trade aspects you mentioned would also exist in a market socialist economy.en.wikipedia.org/.../Market_socialismhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiMvcpRPUNE&t=490s
No, thats just the literal definition. What is with you leftist rejecting definitions and then pointing to what a far leftist says and saying that is reality? You people are insane (ly stupid). So I get it I'm trying to speak rationaly to some one who cannot grasp rationality so this is going to be a losing battle (because your too stupid to understand and too indoctrinated into your cult to ever allow for facts to dissuade you from your fictions). That said here, listen to actual experts on what capitalism is. Here is a nobel prize winning economist and an economist organization to explain it to you.https://youtu.be/_I-qKWoEirohttps://youtu.be/vUxlv3u0My8fee.org/articles/what-is-capitalism-anyway/
Again, you're conflating capitalism with a market system. If a series of firms trade with each other on the basis of market principals but are run democratically by the workers (versus autocratically) then you have a system of free trade with a socialist means of production (i. e. market socialism).
No, no I am not. What is with you and being just totally brain dead? I gave you the definition of capitalism and you scoffed and argued it didn't count because it didn't say what you wanted it to say. I then present you multiple videos from a NOBEL PRIZE WINNING ECONOMIST explaining it to you and your trying to argue that he is wrong and your right. At some point I'm going to have to accept that your just to fucking stupid to ever understand anything and stop trying to argue with some one who just doesn't have the IQ to comprehend basic facts. Hopefully I will learn my lesson soon.
Oh, it's a "definition"? Well definitions change dumbass so lets put it this way, you can have a market system when the means of production are controlled autocratically by a few shareholders and executives or democratically by a the workers if you want to play semantics.
No, no they do not. God your stupid. Capitalism doesn't stop being capitalism because you say so. Up does not become down because you have decided it does. Reality doesn't cease being reality simply because you demand it. So fucking unbelievably stupid yet so self assured, its mind boggling. You are the poster child for the dunning-krueger effect.
It stops being capitalism when it's no longer about the accumulation of capital.
Except that is literally unrelated to the definition so again, your saying its about accumulation of capital, I pointed out its not as did the NOBEL PRIZE WINNING ECONOMIST WHO SPENT HIS ENTIRE LIFE STUDYING THE SUBJECT, and your argument is to reassert your initial claim? Come on, are you even trying at this point? I mean I expect you to be a moron, you haven't thought for yourself your entire life, but this is a new low, even for you. At least put in a little effort.

Yes because all of warfare is won solely on the battlefield. Alan Turing never set foot on a battlefield but how big was his contribution?
