#ows Capitalist hogwash: The Pilgrims' Real Thanksgiving Lesson: Newsroom: The Independent Institute

I commented via Facebook commenting on the linked post, but I really want to blog it too. I'm so tired of capitalist distortions. Here's the comment I left there:

"Bad weather or lack of farming knowledge did not cause the pilgrims' shortages. Bad economic incentives did."

Total capitalists hogwash that is. An inability to be true Christians caused the Pilgrims' shortages. The Hutterites would have suffered no such scarcity the Pilgrims brought upon themselves due to their selfishness and laziness and unwillingness to be Christian concerning each other. The real economic incentive for real Christians is per Acts 4:32, which is completely in line with the teachings of Jesus.

Get your facts right, and tell the whole truth. Stop spreading false-propaganda for selfishness. Capitalism is a failure of the spirit. It is fatally flawed.

"And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common." (Acts 4:32) Debunk that!

Then I left another as a reply to someone else's comment that Christian scripture supports capitalism (It does not!):

"I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours." (John 4:38)

What do you think that means regarding your claimed interpretation: "...means your work is yours a capitalist system from scripture for man"?

You take verses out of context to support your selfishness, your unwillingness to be as the Apostles were and as Jesus was with them. Repent of it if you are able.
