On the impact of trading this currency, comparing to driving my car etc. Apples and oranges.

But, I think more and more every day about all the decisions I make and what is the impact on climate change.

This has a negative impact that I don't need to make, especially for a bit of gambling fun.

Didn't read the article, but a belief that non-capitalist nations don't cause horrific impacts to the environment, just the same as unethical capitalism does, is misplaced.

Again, I didn't read the article, just going off half cocked with the likelihood of looking like a full cock.

Your preference differs?
That’s not what I said.
I’m definitely not anti-capitalist, but it’s not a fair system for most, when nothing they have done or could do, will give them a shot at a decent life. That’s bootstrap bullshit.
My2c. I don’t have your political chops or Oddjob’s economic chops, it’s just how I see it.

Didn't say you said nuffink, just asked the question as it suggested you might prefer another system.

I don't deny the fallacy of the level playing field and I don't deny the faults of unethical capitalism. What does seem true, though, is that disadvantage doesn't differ across systems - being born into the wrong family sucks just as much in the US as it did in Soviet Russia, China today or in Socialist Cuba. The problem isn't the system, the problem is us.

Capitalism: an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.

It's a lack of state control that put us where we are. Only the state, that makes the laws for the private owners, can make capitalism fair. Most of our laws are made to favour profit over equity, and allow the rich to exploit the less rich.

Maybe there is a system of capitalism that works, but it's not the one we're running now.

There is no utopian solution to that problem with current societal and technology constraints. Its assumed that Free, sustainable and clean energy would solve quite a lot of these societal ills, though short of aliens showing us how its done, were a long way away from that. Participate in the game till then i reckon, you don't want to be the guy who misses the chair when the music stops

FIFY. There are limits to growth, aliens aren't coming. But you're alright Jack so make hay while the planet cooks. You would be correct in assuming I am no longer fun at parties.

I dunno, you were amusing at the Rotorburn Christmas bash..
That was 100% the company. I mean those parties where not everyone is a cool person that lives in the same echo chamber as you, the politics discussion was completely benign, we alll pretty much agreed on everything. Or did we all just agree with @johnny on everything for our own safety? :D
