    My answer for “other” might not have been as clear as it could’ve been, since your poll has a character limit.

    Capitalism is a lot of things, but one of the things it does that bothers me the most is it turns moral and ethical questions into economic ones. It puts a dollar value on everything, including human and animal life, and the health and functioning of ecosystems, and thus makes it possible for corporations and governments to justify destroying those things if the price is right.

    (Derrick Jensen, a thinker I really like, says something about capitalism being a way of changing a living planet into dead commodities).

    And few people tell them they’ve done something wrong; people seem to think that capitalism is natural and that there is no other way to do things.

    Nice poll.

    It seems “view results” does not reveal the fill-in answers provided for “other,” which are made available to me. Here are the ones received so far:
