There was an article posted this morning by a 'Gabriella something', questioning weather capitalism or human greed was the root cause of social inequalities. The title was something along the lines of "Is Capitalism or Greed the Problem". (It's not the "Capitalism is legalized robbery" story)
Her point was that if we are attempting to correct social inequalities, then maybe capitalism is the wrong target because the economic development of capitalism has improved the lives of the worlds poor and created the conditions for the development of democracy.
Although I did not agree with every point she made, I thought this was an interesting article--it certianly was not a rant or attempt to abuse this site--and three or four good comments had been posted discussing the topic.
Now, a few hours later, the posting is gone.
I understand that some deletion is neccessary to keep postings within the range of legitimate discussion, but I think deleting this article was simply ideological snobbery.
I hope it was just a computer glitch.
If someone deleted this article because they disagreed with it, then that's simply knee-jerk dogmatism--but I guess they'll probably delete this posting too.
