Capitalism Causes Rioting

Recommended Posts

That's actually the opposite of capitalism. That's socialism.

 

How? Granted, I was just citing it as capitalism in the "free market competition" form, but I don't get how that's socialism?

 

I was saying existing taxi drivers didn't like the privatized competition it faced and that led to rioting

The very banning of Uber by the French government means that it's not free market competition.

I have no sympathy for the Taxi companies.

The reason for the riots is that Uber is still in operation...

The taxi drivers are rioting because of the presence of competition -- it literally says "the cabbies say Uber threatens their jobs by taking customers away from licensed cab companies"

 

not that it matters but im still confused why you think that socialism caused the riots

Never did I say socialism causes the riots, I'm just pointing out it's not capitalism

You guys are getting it wrong. It's crony capitalism; where corporate business and Government actions merge.

Third ship incoming
