Capitalism is fun- is it Really? I can think about a lot of ways to define capitalism, and I have to confess that “fun” is not on my list. But maybe it is me. I understand “fun” as enjoyment, pleasure, diverting, leisure…. and it seems to me that if some people are really enjoying capitalism, they should be so few in number that it makes me difficult to qualify this political system as fun. I would prefer something like : materialistic, consumer’s- goods oriented, superficial, egoistic … but maybe I’m mistaken. Maybe my English is wrong, and I should understand “fun” as related to joke, pleasantry, or even as a trick or practical joke. In that case- yes, I agree… capitalism is a joke. Capitalism is fun.
