You’re confusing political activities with an economic system. If I ever write an article extolling American foreign policy actions in the mid-twentieth century then your comment might be relevant.

Condemning an economic system for the political machinations of the government of one of the countries in which it exists is not a convincing position.

The UK, France, etc. were capitalist but they had nothing to do with your Central American complaints. You’re undercutting the strength of your original and valid comment about Capitalism In The Raw when you start to claim that an economic system is responsible for political power plays of one of the countries (of many) in which that system was practiced.

Why don’t you write an article trying to prove in a convincing, logical manner that a market economic system by its nature causes the political actions you dislike?
