No, I havenít noticed that capitalism is the root of all evil, I havenít
noticed that at all. I have noticed that some societies did abolish
private property and move from each according to their ability to each
according to their needs; and every time that happened the society
turned into a living hell. Look at North and South Korea, the same
people the same culture the same language; 50 years ago both were
equally poor but one embraced private property with a vengeance and one
outlawed it, one is now an economic world powerhouse and the other is on
the list of the poorest countries on the planet. You can even tell the
difference from space with night shots, half the country is ablaze with
light but the workers paradise is as dark as pitch.
