    That Orange cat is just a total non-nice individual. The white and Orange one doesn`t give a drat where it`s eating it just wants to eat.

    It`s funny because this video is Korean and Korea owes its entire quick development to Free Market Capitalism. In 1960, Korea and Kenya had the same level of development. Now, Korea is a developed country. There is a reason, you know.

    Also, I believe the original poster is from the most Capitalist place in the world, Hong Kong. There`s a reason they`re better off than the rest of China. There`s also a reason they developed so quickly and so much faster than pretty much any other place.

    How is this capitalism?
    Where is the product or the service the orange cat is giving in order to take the food?
    Capitalism requires something that can be capitalized upon.
    There is none, he`s just taking without giving back a service.
    More like fascism.

    By 3 cats do you mean 2?
    I would have put orange out of the room until white and orange had finished.

    Ooo, I got it!
    Only the most innovated businesses survive!

    The orange cat was more innovated than the white and orange cat, by pushing him out of the way.


    If anything, this perpetrates the negatives of socialism. As all animals were given equal food, but the orange cat felt that it was more equal than others.

    Alpha male/female eats first.
    Nothing to do with capitalism.
    To suggest it explains capitalism, is a facile imbecilic notion.

    @ aegog:
    Full democracy is a failed, mob rules concept.
    That`s why the U.S. is a constitutional republic.
    Capitalism fits in perfectly with the freedoms granted to us by the constitution.

    I get it.
    Cats aren`t exactly bright so I imagine if they ever tried to "explain" something it would look like a bunch of nonsense.

    I don`t think the fat 9ne will die of starvation anytime soon... ;-)

    Orange Tabby is just being a jerk. Some cats are like that, eh? Nothing to do with economic theory...

    @DuckBoy: Nicely said! Animal Farm is about the dangers of `socialism` after all.

    @piperfawn: It means they`re nice kitties :-)

    If this were CATitalism then one cat would be selling the food to the other cats in exchange for cat nip or something.

    Daegog-"why do people love capitalism so much?"

    More choices, More opportunity, More advancement, More in line with human nature, More freedom, More growth, More happiness.

    And the little fact that there is no alternative politico-economic system which has proved itself to work in our modern age.

    Daegog-"Its so detrimental to any notion of democracy."

    Capitalism is the BEST economic system for democracy. As demonstrated EVERY time it`s been tried, when governments own the means of production and set prices, it always leads to a powerful state (and powerless citizenry) and creates a large, intrusive bureaucracy.

    No relation to capitalism, either.

    Someone just proved that he has no idea whatsoever what capitalism really is.

    Actually, it`s the other way around -- democracy is detrimental to any notion of capitalism.

    Capitalism: You earn it, you keep it.

    Democracy: We win, we take it.

    "why do people love capitalism so much? Its so detrimental to any notion of democracy"
    You`re confusing Capitalism with what we currently have Corporatism. Mega-corporations control everything styfling a free market. In true capitalism you, me, anyone is on equal footing to succeed based on their talent, drive, skill. Capitalism is democratic.

    "I have 3 cats and they share all the food without fights. They are socialists?"

    Communists. Mind you, the cats in the video reflect the current state of Chinese Communism, except the cat that objects gets beaten senseless.

    Socialism is when you take away 75% of the fattest cat`s food, and give 5% of that to the cats with less. The rest goes to bureaucracy.

    Luckily, the United States is not a democracy. Whew that was close!

    How is this capitalism? capitalism is like 2 cats deciding ownership of 3 plates of food? Cats are capitalists? This doesn`t make any sense.

    This post should be retitled "Capitalism As Explained by a Low-information Left-wing F***ard Who Doesn`t Know the First Thing about Economics."
