"Principles of waste and exploitation"?  Sorry, Scott, but you really ought
to check a dictionary.  Capitalism has, by definition, one principle, that
is: private ownership of capital.

Capitalism has no interest in war.  War is bad for markets.  It destroys
property.  A true capitalist is opposed to war except in self defense.

Most of the wars that are blamed on capitalism are actually the actions of
socialistic regimes ( Socialism: _government_ ownership of property ).  Only
when the government has an interest in aquisition of others' property does
it take an interest in wars of conquest.

Hey, I kinda like this.  Well... maybe a volleyball court instead of a golf
course, but otherwise it sounds pretty good to me.
