The Politics of the Cross: Socialism and Capitalism

Craig Carter has an insightful post on the differences between capitalism and socialism-- and highlights why I really like his blog.

A lot of socialists seem to imagine that flaws invalidate the capitalist system but that flaws in the socialist system don't invalidate the socialist system. Why? Because socialism is rational and capitalism is pure evil, which means that my father's business was "pure evil." You have to be very highly educated (i.e. indoctrinated) in order to believe this level of nonsense.
