the top 1% holds about 35% of wealth.
These are the people in that class.
I am an exotic dancer. . .so I'm VERY much in the capitalist class. I am my own capital. When I fork over $40 a month for a gym membership that I use with regularity, I am investing in myself , and I get it back every night I step forward to work. I and my clients are protected by law, so they know what they're getting when they ask for a lapdance or a private room with me.
I've talked to dancers who have worked in former Communist Bloc countries. There, a dancer could be used and abused with no recourse: her tips taken from her leaving her with no money, forced into sex work or drug use in order to keep the bosses happy; and when she wanted to go to authorities it was useless because they were often in cahoots with the club owners.
In a capitalist society for the most part - - a dancer kept as a sex slave is a product of diminishing returns, and probable cause to have the club raided and/or shut down.
2. Laws protecting you and your clients? You don't believe in deregulation of the free market and letting the invisible hand take care of you? Sounds kinda socialist to me.
Laws to preserve the integrity of the product and keep the highest quality, ensuring repeat buisness. There's nothing more capitalist than that.
You may want to check your hearing. :)
The free market is supposed to take care of quality. If some other club is dirty and awful, and yours is clean and fun, well the free market should handle it.Quote:

government regulation saying what I can or can't do with my dollar or with the club I own?
sounds like socialism to me
