Why do capital interests entail corporate interests? I think
individual entrepreneurship is a far truer mark of capitalism than
corporations are. And like Paul Graham, I believe corporations more
often internally resemble mini command economies than being shining
examples of capitalism.
And what's with equating individual interests with socialist
interests? Almost by definition, socialism favours corporate (in the
more general sense) interests over individual interests.

Hah, that's funny *you* calling someone on anthropomorphizing! :-)
