A dumb, socialist name for the market?

People who hate capitalism tend to reflexively embrace socialism. As if it's either/or.

If socialism could be done with unanimous consent-- zero coercion whatsoever, including specifically government violence-- I would have no problem with people giving it their best shot. Just leave me out of it.

If you define capitalism as the market, free from government interference, where profits are reinvested into the economy, then I like capitalism. In other words, if "capitalism" is just a dumb socialist name for the market, then it is superior in every way to socialism.

If, however, capitalism requires the State, then it is unworthy to exist. As is everything that requires archation including-- in every case I've ever seen-- socialism.
