As someone who believes in individuality, practicality, and rationality over collectivism, idealism, and arguments purely from pathos, I have no choice but to be pro-capitalist. Capitalism not only allows you the freedom to offer your craft up to the masses, but it allows you to receive feedback and the ability to hone your talents. Capitalists also tend to be more practical with their solutions. Socialists and Communists want to eliminate poverty completely; capitalists want to reduce the number of poor, since that is more practical, given that poverty is a societal ill that has plagued man since the beginning of civilization and will continue to plague him as long as civilization stands.


What is with this insult? Capitalism only allow freedom for the rich, who have more wealth for investment, and criminals, who have the motivation to make criminal investment against the law. Capitalism dictate that a person's choice over their life, along with their power over another person`s life, should be dictated by their property ownership and connection to the property-owning elites. Even when a Capitalist economy is not lead by an individual copsiracy (which is often encouraged), it will eventually lead to oligopoly or even monopoly unless they implement Socialist institutions to make Capitalism work as it should. Your idea that Capitalism is practical need to be revised since many practical solutions in a Capitalism economy use some form of Socialism to fix the problems from Capitalism; the reduction of poor in Capitalism is one example of Socialism being used to fix Capitalist problems.

You associated Capitalism with rationality but I would take this as a joke; the Capitalists' religious concept of the invisible hand is equivalent to Marxists' more scientific concept of social condition. Furthermore, the value of arguments is part of Capitalism as part of its competition.

Some anime which this issues in Capitalism would be Mondaiji-tachi Ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sou Desu Yo? and Hayete No Gotoku (especially the first few arcs). Classroom of the Elite and Accel World, in some interpretations, did emphasis the competitive aspect of Capitalism and show how those conflicts can get prioritized over morality and law.

In capitalism, one can buy cruelty.
In communism, it is free.

[EDIT:]
Cruelty is like a murderer in a forest.
In capitalism, you can pay people to go out into the forest to be killed by it.
In communism, you can threaten people to go out into the forest to be killed by it.
