It’s hard for people to A) understand and B) emotionally accept that when government bails out a company, or enacts a law specifically to help one company or group of companies over others, or fails to put company management in jail when they clearly deserve it, this is not capitalism. This is corporatism. Corporatism is just as bad as socialism.
When conservatives point at these kinds of actions and defend them as defending capitalism, it is dishonest and wrong. It isn’t capitalism.
When left-liberals point to these kinds of actions and say “See? Look at all these problems capitalism is causing!”, it is dishonest and wrong. It isn’t capitalism.
