No, I'm arguing that capitalism is a rough and tumble system. It is also
an imperfectly implemented system.

That it is different from communism is easily verifiable through a visit
to Cuba or North Korea or through a book about the Soviet Union. Compare
the Enron "crisis" to the Ukrainian Famine. Now that's a crisis.
