Did you think that it did? Or does it just heavily regulate it and prevent competition?

Is making sure that drugs actually do what the seller claims it does, without causing harm, "preventing competition"??
That is what the FDA does.

Commie gibberish

Geesh… look at the corruption in the Biden and Pelosi families with sons getting unqualified cushy NO PARTICIPATION highly paid “jobs”

agree, but You can also add the families of Trump son and daughters, and Mitch or Rick Scott the richest of them all,
Greed and corruption have no party lines.

Because of capitalism, virtually no one "toils" anymore, other than professional atheletes.
Such bunk. No one YOU see toils anymore, as the US has out-sourced our toil to places where labor and enviro laws don't exist...

Which has hollowed out the vast American manufacturing sector.

And not in a good way.

The biggest problem with capitalism is people thinking money and goods are the capital. Humans, workers are the capital and most are exploited for the gain of a few.

Some would say human workers are an assett to help earn the capitol.. And like most assetts, you take care of it, it takes care of you..

Good workers are an asset and should be prized.
They are!
Don’t let your personal experience conclude that it is like that for everyone else.
In any of the European countries you stuck for life in what ever pidgin hole you are put in . Not really a hole, more like a financial wrung.

Not true..

On the other hand, you have that here too.. opportunity is there, don't think it is going to be handed to you.

Psychologically they are conditioned and trapped. True to some degree here but there are many many examples of individual success by hard work and setting their own goals.
Up thread someone mentioned intelligence and that is certainly a component. Too bad all the manufacturing jobs where allowed ( K Street and both parties) because manufacturing is the base of every successful economy.

The cool thing about living in a free society is that you don't have to enter into any transactions that you don't want to. Then, no one can "exploit" you.

Good workers are an asset and outstanding workers should be prized.

Fixed

Why is it that businesses are complaining, and guys who see themselves as "entrepreneurs" like you, are whining they can't hire workers? Or complaining that people don't want to work?

Is it because they make sure outstanding workers are prized, or is it because they expect to get average workers for shit wages?

I must not understand the system, I just ended up doing well enough to have a waterfront home, some nice boats, retire early, be a volunteer sailing coach with my free time.

Wow, that is really impressive. Thank you for sharing. People that have waterfront homes are generally experts economics.

They lack the creativity and humility to adapt to a changing economic landscape. Depending on how you look at it, that could be a natural ebb and flow as entrenched power structures are replaced by more agile ones. It could also highlight the pitfalls of highly concentrated capital. There seems to be a correlation between people who mindlessly parrot the virtues of capitalism and people who don't like democracy or distributed leadership.
