why i am an anti-capitalist

money is the root of all evil, isnt it?

here is a video that briefly explains the idea that there are two types of forces, a marketforce, and a social force. we are social animals, and some things we do because we achive social benefits from doing them. other thigns we do because someone is paying us. and even more telling is that bringing money into a relationship tends to destroy the social relationship.

why i am an anti-capitalist: i want to live in a society based on social forces.

i mean, it's pretty rad when Dan Ariely, a capitalist economist, more or less says that capitalism is anti-social.
