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! :-)
