I should explain about the Capitalist fantasy logic from kid's cartoon and anime. The Capitalists use the Capitalist logic to support their arguments similar to how Kyuubey manipulate the magical girl in Madoka Magica. The show which enforce the Capitalist fantasy logic include: Disney cartoons, Dragon Ball, Digimon, Yu-gi-oh, Beyblade, and ERASED.
Some show that enforce the Capitalist logic often remake stories that are originally affiliated with non-Capitalist perspective. Such example include: some Disney movies based on the folk tales from European commoners during the industrial revolution, Hayate No Gotoku Cuties from its prerequisites, Gundam Build Fighter Try from the original Gundam Built Fighter series, and Sailor Moon from the previous Feminist magical girl cartoons.

Much of the Capitalists’ criticism toward the leftists occur as a projection of the Capitalist logic from kid’s cartoons which are enforced by impersonation. Those fantasy logic propose solutions like: ignorance, faithfulness to one’s initial perspective regardless of the circumstances, expectation of everyone to help each other without any incentive, relay on the oppressors in authority to help the oppressed, and work hard for the oppressors. The Capitalist logic is further used to enforce the victim blaming policies toward the Communists.

Those fantasy logic work by gaining support from the invisible hand; by claiming that the leftist use the Capitalist logic as a solution, the Capitalists can simply claim that their opposition ideology failed since it reject the invisible hand which is needed to make the Capitalist logic work. For one example, "expectation to help each other out without incentive" is enforced by the invisible hand which reward people who help others; An example would be the protagonist in Mahou Sensou in his interaction with his jealous brother. For a second example, the pro-Capitalist Western comedy cartoons enforce ignorance when they show that the invisible hand protect people with the innocent child mindset; That is why Homura is stigmatized in Magica Madoka.

EDIT: I realize that the Capitalists have different sects which could possess different logics; some of their contradicting logics may actually exist as a difference between their sects and not within a sect. I also realize that multiple invisible hands exist and that the Capitalists had been confusing one invisible hand with another invisible hand. I should make some revision to my knowledge of Capitalism in light of the new information.

EDIT2: From my study, I now know that Capitalism refer to a political economy system while liberalism refer to a political ideology associated with Capitalism. If this is true, then the Capitalisl logics should be called "Liberal logics". The liberals often avoid defining their ideology so liberalism had diverged into many diverse sects and the ideology could have many interpretations besides that one provided in this topic.

I should explain what I meant by the Capitalist logic: as a logic, it refer to the beliefs and emphasis that is used to guide people's understanding of events and the working of the world. It is something that is taken for granted because people do not normally think about it unless it is directly mentioned. The Capitalist logic is used to provide a rational interpretation of pro-Capitalist arguments but it is never mentioned directly by the Capitalists. The Capitalist logic is taught implicitly to children from cartoons and schools as part of the society`s culture.

The beliefs include the idea of some sort of karma system that manipulate physical events to benefit or harm people according to their past deeds. This include that idea that a person's property ownership and wealth is determined by their hard work and innovation instead of their connection and property investment. The emphasis here refer to what people think about; example include how a person's success is affect by individual choice instead of the support from wealthy family members.

The Capitalist fantasy logic refer to the Capitalist logic that do not work in reality. The Capitalist logic and the Capitalist fantasy logic are two terms that I coined because I find no alternative terms that can effectively describe this concept; I could use "Capitalist brainwashing" or "Capitalist worldview" to refer to the concept but those terms has too broad of a referent.

The Capitalist logic is contradicted by the decreased childbirth in the developed nations especially among the property owning elites. The Capitalist logic state that property inheritance is irrelevant in an individual's success since their property ownership will eventually be determined by their culture and genetics. Under this logic, property inheritance have no effect on success so each children of the property owning elites can become as rich as their parents by their cultural and genetic inheritance regardless of the number of siblings; the only incentive to limit childbirth is the huge effort needed to raise each child.
This logic is contrary to empirical evidences which show that rich parents attempted to limit childbirth so that their children will become as successful as their parents by their property ownership. This evidence show that a individual's success is actually determined by their property ownership and wealth instead of their culture nor genetics.

The "Capitalist Fantasy Logic" topic during January 22 of 2016 in the general discussion forum help establish more contradiction of Capitalism:

1) Capitalism do not always allow 'win-win' opportunities; an individual often benefit at the cost of other individuals.

2) The authority of the property owners is similar to a slave owners in that they prevent an individual from getting any reward for their work; this include the authority to prevent access by an individual to their basic living. Due to this, the property owners prevent the Capitalist economy from working as it should.

3) The concept of the invisible hand also function in Socialist economy with its rule of law; by the law, an individual's position and ownership can be dictated by their effort and talents.

The Capitalists use the media and their hacked communist accounts to convince the people to support the Capitalist logic that an individual should be judged without considering their circumstance. This logic is used to criticize the Communist nations for the problems that the Capitalist create.

Communism arise in nations with economic hardship and instability from Capitalism but the Capitalist use their Capitalist logic to confuse direction of causation. Even when the Communist countries begin from a bad economic position, the Capitalist still need to create economic sanction against the Communist countries; the economic sanction contradict the Capitalist's own support for free trade but the Capitalists can get away with this by claiming that Cuba and Venezuela are punished for opposing the invisible hand. The Capitalist claim that opposition to free-trade will lead to nuclear war and decrease economic productivity but the Capitalists accept this risk due to their paranoid fear of hard working innovative Communists.

Interestingly, this Capitalist logic can also be used against the Capitalists: this logic will blame the 9/11 attack on US lax security during the height of Capitalism which would further indicate that Capitalism is for lazy ignorant people; It will further attribute the decreasing support of Capitalism on the Western world to the failure of the Capitalist economy; the paranoid fear of hard-working innovative Communists would be attributed to the laziness of the Capitalists; the Communist-blaming policies by the Capitalists can be attributed to the Capitalists' attempts to force their own responsibility on the Communists.

I figure out something during the discussion with the Capitalists: the Capitalists follow not one invisible hand but multiple invisible hands. The invisible hand that the Capitalists is always talking about is the invisible hand of the free market. The invisible hand from my opening post refer to the invisible hand that come mainly from the Capitalist fantasy and that is constantly been mocked by the Socialist heretics. The Capitalists claim that Sweden is Capitalist because the invisible hand is working in its Socialist economy but that invisible hand differ from the invisible hand of the free market; the invisible hand of Sweden work within the government and function within any Socialism that arise from non-extreme condition.

There are also people who claim that the invisible hand is also working within the natural ecosystem or within human languages and those invisible hands could also be more invisible hands. I also detect another invisible hand that control the formation and collapse of governments and decide how much government intervention should occur in the economy; no Capitalists here debate about the existance of this invisible hand so far so I can conclude that this invisible hand does exist. Still another invisible hand may embody the Marxist concept of the social condition.

This finding is very important: The Capitalists has been using NAFTA and WTO to force many developing governments into opening up their market for criminal activities and lawlessness. This coercion assume that the invisible hand of the market is the sole driver of economic progress; it negate the invisible hand of the government, the invisible hand of the natural ecosystem, and other invisible hands that is needed for economic development. The third world problems that show up within this few decades is not an inevitable result of industrialization; it is because many invisible hands, excluding the invisible hand of the free market, are banned from managing the third world countries. It also means that many shrines needed to be established across the world to honor and understand these many invisible hands.

I had realized that my knowledge of Capitalism is lacking on some of its domains so I had been studying about Capitalism on the context of the political economy. With my further information, I had found some irony: I had witness the Capitalists consistently complaining about government intervention, especially from their populist sects, but Capitalism actually depend heavily on government intervention to function and it is not just on property right enforcement or regulation; active government intervention may be needed to adapt to changing market conditions. When the Capitalists complain about government intervention, they only meant a type of government intervention that oppose authority by property ownership and inter-firm competition; they support government that is controlled by elite property owners. This heavy government intervention in Capitalism had caused confusion in the distinction between Capitalism and Socialism and the confusion is effectively used in politics.

I now also know about the connection between Capitalism and Liberalism: liberalism is an political ideology that support Capitalism which is an economic system. Capitalism refer to the government support of market competition, private ownership of firm, and authority by property ownership. Liberalism refer to the Kantian Triangle of economic interdependancy, international liberal institutions, and democracy which supposedly promote peace without undermining state sovereignty.

The Liberals claim that Capitalism oppose European imperialism but this is not true: the European empires privatize many infrastructures in their colonized nations so the infrastructures will be taxable; the privatetization also encourage economic competition among the colonized so they will not united against the European imperialists. The U.S., who is the leading the liberal order, claim that they will replace the imperial order with the liberal order after WW2 but they are actually helping the Europeans regain their colonies in the early parts of the Cold War; the decolonization after the two inter-imperial wars is driven by the colonized people and the European Communists are the only Europeans to oppose European colonization.

I had realized that my interpretation of Capitalism could also be applied to other religions. The sacred texts of all religions are full of self-contradiction and the many contradictions allow multiple contradictory interpretations of the texts. The self-contradiction could be resolved by claiming that some of the contradicting text should not be interpreted literary or that the contradicting texts should be applied in different contexts.

In Christian norms, a Christian could justify also their violation of their own Christian rules by claiming that God allow them to break God's own rules in the current situation. This attempts to resolve the many self-contradictions had resulted in many contradicting interpretations of the bible and a Christian authority often decide which of the many contradicting interpretations should be enforced. Christains could support a Christian authority without knowing that the Christian authority are making an interpretation of the bible that contradiction their own interpretation of the bible.

Using a prototypical example of raping of girls by Christian authority, the rapist could create an interpretation of the bible that ban all punishments and restraintments toward raping even when raping is an offense toward Christianity. In this interpretation, the rape victim cannot tell the truth becuase it is "judgemental" and they cannot resist the raping because resistance is a "rebellion" toward authority. This interpretation state that only God can administer the judgement, restraintment, and punishment; if God do nothing against the raping, then the raping is God's will.

The Christian parents of the rape victim would give absolute authority to the rapist over the rape victims because the parents could not believe that God would allow a dangerous person in authority nor permit such criminal acts. If the raping get exposed, then they the parents would assume that the raping is done with good intention. If the they learn that the raping is done only with bad intentions, then they assume that God allow the raping for the greater good. Despite offering no punishment toward the rapist, the parents would severely punish the rape victims for disobeying the rapist and create lies to convince the rape victim to obey the rapist.

If the rape victim became desperate, then they would believe in a divine punishment against raping and attempts to intensify this divine punishment by helping the rapist commit more raping. The rape victim would lure more girls into the rapist's trap and force those girls into being raped. If a person attempts to stop the raping, then the rape victim would held they savior as scapegoat of the raping so the real rapist can rape more girls without restraintment.

Even when the rape victim did not help the rapist, the rapist would delude himself into believing that his victims want to be raped, molested, and sexually assaulted. The rapist would threatened to sexually harass the rapist`s friends to "make her jealous". The rape victim would also get bullied and ostracized by her peers, who are ignorant of the raping, for gaining "special treatment" by the authority.

The European imperialists and the European American slave-owners did attempts to manipulate the interpretation of the bible in this fashion to justify oppression, absolute authority, and brutality toward the colonized and slaves respectively. In this case, the salvage barbaric self-shaming self-contradicting European rulers get support from the European Christians who believed that the bible could only have one interpretation; they cannot believe that the bible allow an interpretation that prioritize human authority over morality when the European rulers had provided that very interpretation. Since the colonized and slaves are not Europeans, they are not allowed to make their own interpretation of the bible since they "know less about the true God than the Europeans".
