IRONY - The use of words to express something different from and often opposite to their literal meaning.

CAPITALISM - An economic system in which the means of production, distribution and exchange are privately owned and operated for private profit.
- - - WEBSTER'S DICTIONARY

PRIVATE PROPERTY - "As protected from being taken for public uses, is such property as belongs absolutely to an individual, and of which he has the exclusive right of disposition. Property of a specific, fixed and tangible nature, capable of being in possession and transmitted to another, such as houses, lands, and chattels."
- - - Black's Law dictionary, sixth ed., p.1217

If you concatenate capitalism with private property, you can see the "inconvenient truth".

❏ CAPITALISM is an economic system in which the means of production, distribution and exchange are absolutely owned by INDIVIDUALS and operated for their individual profit.

And that boils down to : "What's yours is yours, what's mine is mine, don't trespass!"

When Leftist thieves castigate "capitalists" they're excluding their own thievery for the glorious collective state.

From the Communist manifesto: "In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property."
https://www.marxists.org/archive/mar...ist-manifesto/

Any plainer than that?
The amoral Left wants to STEAL all property - land, labor (slavery?), tools, machines - or indirectly control it all via regulations and take a massive share via taxes. It's not surprising that communism required 90+ million dead bodies to inflict upon mankind.

So you can trust that the LEFT has your best interests at heart.
They'll give you EVERYTHING you need, while taking everything you've got.
Yeah, right.

Oh yeah, and if bitcoin traders exchange bitcoin for state currency then they are betraying the free market method by which crypto-currency came to existance.
Well, people trade in diamonds and antiques, etc., based on supply and demand. But I agree with you, the bitcoin is dodgy. It's a crypto currency, even though they can be exchanged/sold for real money.

I've never looked into the terms.
