Which are the pillars of capitalism?
Each society has it's pillars.I think that for capitalism, one of the pillars can be the freedom of speech.
1)The right to own property
2)The right to trade property by mutual consent
3)The right to self-ownership
This requires a minimal government that protects property rights from external foreign enemies and internal thugs. Laws that weaken any of the above 3 basics will undermine capitalism.
I think all these basics are explained in Ayn Rand's book "Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal"
"The right to self ownership? Please! What made you even say that? I would assume you had ownership automatically! Then again a belief in God might have something to do with that statement ! In which case your "forgiven" lol
