So you want some battlefunds but you don't have the cash? Fine, I got you covered. But you're going to have to work for it.

Your prize:

A $20 Visa gift card.

Your mission is to read this short essay:

The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality

By:

Ludwig Von Mises

You can find it at mises.org under the literature subtab:

http://library.mises.org/books/Ludwig%20...tality.pdf

Assuming you've read it, trust me I will know if you're faking, you will then write me a 2 to 3 page paper, double spaced, discussing what you thought of the novella. Your answers must be in your own writing.

You must also answer the following questions below:

1. Why are many intellectuals anti-capitalistic?

2. What are some non-economic objections to capitalism?

3. Why do some people resent their lives under capitalism?

4. Have your views changed after this book? If so, what have your learned? If not, why?

Best all around paper wins. The winner, will recieve the info for the $20 Visa card at their email.

The last day to submit your paper will be May 19. (exactly one month)

Post your papers in this thread or send them to my email adress, absurdworld@live.com

There will be an essay contest in May adressing Lysander Spooner's epic essay Vices are Not Crimes.

Goodluck!

Don't take the cheap way out of doing your schoolwork...
Nobody's going to read a book and write and essay for you for 20 bucks. >_>

To clarify, I have already read Mises novel The Anti-Capitalist Mentality. This is not for schoolwork, this is a contest for BFH members and I think it's a very good reward for the amount of work involved... It's a short novella you can read in one night.

Assuming I was paying you 7 dollars an hour... this contest should take you 3 hours if you're a good reader... so that's $21... well within reason of the reward amount given.

I suppose some people on this forum are actually educated. I'd read it myself if I had the time, but I take back what I said... seems legit.

If I have enough time I will send an entry, sounds interesting.

I remember playing with you before and discussing Anarchy and Deism, good times.

(Also, guys from what I know about trompe is that he Isn't doing this to plagiarize, he is trying to get the BFH community to think for a change.)

You don't read about guys like Ludwig Von Mises or Lysander Spooner... in school...

you read about guys like Karl Marx.

I was just reading some stuff by Mises in economics... ... because I am homeschooled. Tongue
I see your forum ban got lifted.
I would write something up but I have plenty of school as it is.
Good luck you guys! No... uh... cheating. Heart

Just a head's up for the people who want to do this offer, the material is 112 pages of reading, and about a page and a half for the introduction. If you have the free time, feel free to read it and submit an essay. I personally have enough homework to do and I don't want to convert the 30 video game break I have into another reading session. I hope that people learn from this essay. The introduction was interesting and if I ever find the free time, I'll probably read it then.

Picture proof updated to original post.

This is not for homework.

Hm, I already find me opposing its message just from the introduction. Seem's like an interesting read though I feel, so far, that the author is blaming the wrong entity. I'm enjoying it, as I do love reading, though I wish not to be brainwashed into a poverty mentality as I read it. (you can tell I oppose it's message already).

I am actually considering writing the essay after I read it all.

These points kinda makes it sound like propaganda, especially the first point. It doesn't sound very objectively..
