Capitalism is only about profits. Someone decided that profits are bad. I’m guessing that this rumor is being spread by those who have no profits.
Someone else started a rumor that Capitalism is a synonym for Free Enterprise. Obviously this rumor was spread by someone who was trained as a child in the miraculous, unreasoned skill of sight-reading.
Free Enterprise occurs every day in the lives of the richest and the poorest members of this great planet and everyone in between. Free Enterprise is a handy label for a motive that is shared by every living and non living thing in the Universe.
Free Enterprise exists for those who want to make their own choices in life. In America this concept is constitutionally protected. Some would say it is a gift of the government. In fact it is a gift, with which every form of life on this planet is born. Only death or catastrophic intervention can rob us of this gift. Notice in the Googled set of definitions below, that only the fifth and last definition mentions commerce.
