Senator Hatrack (I do like that name) what you did is read something into my comment that isn't there. I just implied that capitalism, despite your extreme bias toward it, is very likely not the sole reason for the improved living conditions of the world. To understand my comments about capitalism it would help if you could look at capitalism while recognizing your bias for it.
