Good job comrades! These are all great reasons to hate capitalism

40. Today women are discriminated against so they can't work to support their families

43. Global warming

44. Unemployment

45. Lemons (yes, this is an actual argument)

33. Suicide machines will be advertised to kids on TV

57) Poor people can't afford anything

59) Poor people uneducated

82. It just makes sense

I think that we've forgotten a very important one:

92. Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

 

93. Jesus was a socialist

94. It doesn't align with the teachings of Yen Buddhism

95. Hitler was a capitalist

96. Mises and Hayek were nobility

97. NASA is government and makes everything

98. The Spanish Revolution proves that socialism works

99. Over production

100. You wanna know what my first ever ever encounter with a capitalist was?

Tell me that having dealing with this asshole to get to the next stage wouldn't make you want to overthrow the capitalist system from a very young age!

Counting backwards to avoid collisions...

0) Artists starve and die because rich people never buy art (and poor people can't)

-1) No art because rich people buy up all the art and hide it away in private stashes from the unwashed masses (RATM lyrics?)

-2) No charity because the rich are too greedy to give and the poor are too poor to give

-3) No decency because greed

-4) Human life will cease after the last contract killer executes his contract to kill the second-to-last contract killer

-5) Landfill: Earth

-6) All birds die in globe-spanning oilslicks

-7) Hurricanes

-8) No more icebergs and no more polar bears

-9) Goldman Sachs

-10) The Federal Reserve

-11) The earth is an uninhabitable wasteland after the last tree is chopped down by the last tree-corporation and all arable land is turned into a dustbowl

-12) No parks because the rich will buy up all the pristine wilderness

-13) No roads. People will be reduced to pushing square-wheeled wagons across giant mudpits where once there were the greatest monuments to human achievement: freeways

-14) The smog blots out the Sun and the rich live in zeppelin-supported floating villas in the sky above a planet that looks from space roughly like the planet Venus

-15) No jobs because the rich will refuse to pay people to work

-16) Oil

-17) People have to work 23 hours per day just to feed themselves, let alone their children

-18) Drugs

-19) Guns

-20) Prostitution

-21) Alcohol

-22) Gambling

Exactly the sort of thing an evil capitalist would say. I bet that you don't even support peace and freedom.

Yeah, because it's called the Peace and Freedom Party, that must mean it's all about nothing but peace and freedom, right?

Just like the Austrian School must be a culinary place where you learn how to make Wiener Schnitzel!

@SkepticalMetal: I have a whole conspiracy theory about how certain powerful Elites "plant" their (illegitimate?) children into "normal" homes to be raised away from the spotlight where they can be safer and more useful. I believe it has its roots in this.

Kate Middleton, for example. I doubt very much that she's actually a commoner. Either one of her parents or she herself could be "crypto-nobility".
