Response to a Critic of 'Capitalism's False Ethic of Giving' (2)

The paragraphs in green enclosed in square brackets are those of the critic. My response in purple is interspersed in between.

[Free market economies work best and allow the most freedom to obey God's commands]

This supposedly professing Christian is looking to the worldly systems, and praising it. The Bible commands “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him” (1 John 2:15).

[I think Karl Marx created the word capitalism...]

The identity of the person who came up with the word ‘capitalism’ is irrelevant as to whether it is unethical and moral.

[In America, there is a hugely unfair distortion of our money supply by the "Federal" "Reserve" which is sometimes called "capitalism" but which is really unconstitutional "legalized" theft by a private corporation.]

This is the freedom from capitalism that this person claims to so love. Freedom is not a virtue, and when one asks for freedom, the question in response must be, “freedom of what” and “freedom from what”?

Capitalism is a game of private corporations attempting to dominate and control other financially. Capitalism is “legalised” theft.
