Under communism, man exploits man.

Under capitalism, it’s exactly the opposite.

    Catchy, but not quite true. Unless you consider my (or anyone elses) refusal to give you something as exploitation. Capitalism is about engaging in mutually beneficial transactions – and it leaves a lot of room for “non-transactional” activities as well, such as charity, community work etc. It just won’t force anyone to do it.

    I disagree. How could I exploit you in a capitalist system?
