Comment: Reference to reason?

(See in situ)


Reference to reason?

It is epistimilogical not historical. There is an epistimilogical need to distinguish between capitalism with and without interference. Without interference the term Free Market Capitalism has become the standard. Socialism has become a standard term for governments that interfer with markets. Markets are commensurate with capital exchanges. So Socialism does not exist independant of capital markets it is a kind of capitalism hence the term Socialist Capitalism.

Specifying Socialism as Socialist Capitalism removes ambiguity and so provides an antidote against propaganda which tries to push Socialism as the opposite of the existing system which is why you see many young people who start caring about corruption turning to Socialism as a reflex.
