... this is the thing about the term "capitalists" ... most of the people who are described as such may wax lyrical about market forces and the free market .... but they are anything but free market champions!
They will use government to suppress the free market wherever they can if it is in their interest to do so, they will dismiss communists and socialists as anti-market, yet basically behave in the most hypocritical of manner, even being anti-free market themselves, as long as they get what they want!
Having achieved wealth by whatever means they can get away with, they will not tolerate any disruptive technology that could upset their greed laden apple carts ...
And worse still, the 'sheeples' that admire these 'giants', like the Warren Buffet Ra Ra Ra Brigades, be it Joe Soap next door or the most prestigious of business media, are too brainwashed (or hypocritical themselves) to see that far from being champions for individual liberty these 'business heroes' that they look up to are just Alphas questing for power without any scruples ... !
Communists and socialists may indeed be restrictive of individual liberties, but from my libertarian, free market loving political perspective they are at least honest and sincere in their professed beliefs, whereas capitalists-the ones that truly deserve this most disliked term-are definitely not!
