I am compelled to respond to the letter by John Cooper, “Capitalism proves wealth redistribution works,” Jan. 11. He obviously failed to do his homework.
I will match my combat record against anyone. Mr. Cooper failed to grasp what actually happened in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Did you ever hear of Pol Pot?
As to capitalism, it provides opportunity for good and bad. Socialism only gets worse over time. Mr. Cooper should visit Cuba or eastern Europe, and read up on Stalin, Mao, Fidel and Che. Certainly we have bad capitalists just like we have Democrats and liberals. The key is we have a choice.
