I came across this little gem while looking for a way to make sense of a comment that flummoxed me in another thread: “Capitalism is an economic construct, not a social one.”
The Tour addresses the comment in it’s first panel, but not in great depth. Instead, it merely alludes to the historical (or social) context in which capitalism evolved.
But it is an important point. Capitalism is a naturally occurring phenomenon, not an invented one. It is a reality, not a philosophy.
