" so if a body that governs a community counts as government"
we are talking on a state wide basis not down at the level of individual companies obviously... whenever you've heard the term government what were the people referring to? i mean are you playing dumb right now?
" So, what is capitalism"
as i've said capitalism refers to private ownership of businesses
if the government then chooses to seize control of a business that is socialism at work as i said to the other guy
Ah, so government just means the state then? So does that mean that trade unions can't be considered socialist if they're independent from the state? And if capitalism is private ownership of business, why would the government seizing control of it count as socialism? They could just seize it and re-privatize it, so that'd still count as capitalism then.
