. . . promoting capitalist acts between consenting adults.
Amanda BillyRock says so.
The example I use is two neighboring farms with crops that need to be harvested at different times, for years the farmers help each other out. Then the accountant tells farmer 'A' he must now put a dollar value on the help he receives and the help he gives and pay tax on it. They stop helping each other. In this way, everyday, in a billion different circumstances people are dissuaded from helping each other.
