    Default If capitalists call us leftists "commies", why don't we call them capies?

    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.

    Seeing as this is seen as acceptable by an admin, from here on out when I have a disagreement with someone I will be asking them to reference this. If you want an explanation of my views, too bad.

    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".

    I refer to anyone who supports Capitalism (who is not a Capitalist themself) a bootlicker. No other epithet is necessary.

    Capitalist! with a huge note of disgust in my voice.

    If you take just random words that end in '-appy' you can create any string of words to describe them that contains the easy one; "Cappy."
    "Capitalist Pig" works for me though, but some of my semi-Cappy Comrades refer to me as a Commie. So that works.

    What do you call an Anarchist?
