whats more evil corrupt capitalism or religion Watch
Hmm, I don't agree. Just because it's difficult to rectify doesn't mean it's a fundamentally more evil thing. More damaging, yes, as it's given more time to do its damage. Isn't evil is better indicated by damage-done/time, as opposed to just damage-done?
Even if we accept that, there's no indication that religion has been less harmful over the last 1000 years than capitalist corruption. Capitalism after all, is a newer concept than religion.
By damage-done/time, I meant the rate at which damage is being done. So something like the Holocaust, which did an extraordinary amount of harm in a relatively short period, would be more evil than, say, a racist legal system, which does much less damage over the same length of time.
what are you talking about? liberty means you can do whatever you want without coercing others. if you want to be greedy in this society, surely that's your right? why not? how not? I could be giving a lot of my money to charity right now but I'm greedy so I don't (like most people) - am I a criminal?
not all individual liberties are capitalism-based, but capitalism is a form of individual liberty though, isn't it? why would you hate capitalism while appreciating the principles of individual freedom which conforms to capitalism's basic principles
But liberty by it's very nature should not and does not conform to anything. It simply happens to fall hand in hand with capitalism on many fronts. But not all. They are altogether separate. If anything capitalism was designed to (and does) condone and encourage many individual liberties - to conform to liberty, but it does not achieve this fully, either deliberately or just in itself. It has consequences and restricts liberty for, and punishes those who won't or who are simply unable to conform to it. It refuses to help those who lack, or are simply unable to earn enough money, even through no fault of their own. The rich benefit more.
Although as I keep saying I cannot think of a better alternative to capitalism. So I cannot hate it. But I cannot say that it is morally good. I feel that a system that requires money and greed to work (and not well at that) cannot be morally good. Yet I concede that a system not based on money and greed will not work at all.

Stalin, pol pot, hitler, mao... Over 120 million people perhaps there?
I'm an atheist btw before anyone gives me the childish and basic arguments against 'but stalin wasn't' 'hitler in mein kamp....'
Do your own research and examine the morality of what led them to do the things they did.
Capitalism alleviates poverty.

Taking everything into account, I'd definitely say that religion is the greater evil.
