    Capitalism - a challenge

    I asked the following question of Lefties many times, and never received a good answer: “How many of the thousands of things in your home are not the result of capitalism?” Out of thousands I’ve asked, only three or four people tried to answer. One said his ‘fingernail cuttings’. I pointed...
