    I don't think using the word "bourgeoisie" is negative, same for "capitalist dog"

    They're the only true victims of the apocalypse, that's enough for me.

    I don't interact with capitalists enough for a personal insult to do much good. Besides, things become insults through connotation or allusion. Actual capitalists and the more common and numerous capitalist apologists would be fine being called capies.

    We can make "capitalist" itself a dirty word and concept by organizing and helping build class consciousness. When class consciousness is high, capitalist itself becomes an epitaph.

    'Epithet'. You're welcome.

    It will become a word used to remember a dead society. So 'epitaph' is the correct word. :P

    If you're talking about actual capitalists, well, they're too small a group to deserve a nickname.

    As for people who support capitalism, it's called "Stockholm syndrome".
