What’s the danger? Every living organism on this planet is genetically imbedded to survive, and to survive in this reality means to kill something weaker to sustain life. As much as human idealism has tried to reinterpret this reality, it’s a fact of nature. But the food-chain stops with Humanity, and who takes the place of nature from here while not replicating the brutality that fills the walls of history? Capitalists! Capitalist provide an avenue to civilly separate the weak from the wise. And this is the danger of Capitalism, there has to be losers and people who fail. Which isn’t much of a danger from this author’s view.
The opportunity? A Capitalist must utilize all assets in his/her arsenal to fund a venture that will provide profit and growth. But as with every thymotic conquest comes competition that will utilize all the tools in its arsenal to eliminate start-up ventures that will threaten their part of a given market. As a result, spectators who join sides with a specific Capitalist in a given venture, capitalize by default with jobs, creativity, research and development. Productivity and growth permeates as spectators of the Capitalist battle become part of the spectacle themselves.
To be a Capitalist in modern times is a lucrative, yet a dangerous idea to accept as the foundation of one’s mentality. Those in the failure category of the Capitalist models vent their frustrations at successful Capitalists; which can become extremely violent. To be a Capitalist is not to just accumulate wealth and assets, but to expand economic possibilities to inspire the productivity of a civilization. To be a Capitalist is to go above the limits set forth by society, politics and family influences. The economic model of international free markets has enabled Capitalists to grow beyond the locality of their geopolitical proximity. It provides opportunity on a global scale for that seek it, and economic growth for those who want it. So you want to be a Capitalist? Join us!
