If it comes with cuteness?

You'd have to be pretty foolish not to.

The problem with discussing 'capitalism' is that people can want to think it's black and white - all good or you're against all of it - which is wrong. There isn't even a word for supporting 'limited capitalism', making it awfully hard for people to be for something there isn't even a word for, thry have to use phrases to explain 'limited capitalism', and yet every society has limited capitalism and unlimited capitalism is a terrible disaster for society leading to plutocracy.

Democratically overseen and regulated capitalism can work well, but tends to get corrupted.

Whoa buddy, you threw out a whole lot of conclusions without even defining what capitalism is. Capitalism is about mutual voluntary exchanges. It means the freedom to be able to exchange whatever you want on a market as long as both parties consent to the transaction. Limited capitalism is an oxymoron, as it's like saying 'You have the freedom to exchange anything as long as you have permission from a third party to do so.' If you require permission from a third party to exchange otherwise force (violence) will be used against you than you no longer have capitalism.

Bascially in a nut shell what you're saying is that 'you' support the use of violence against people for disagreeing with the majority.

I own myself and the effects of my actions, I am a capitalist.

I disagree on your definition, in of itself capitalism really just means that things are privately instead of state/government-owned/run.

The means of production and exchange are privatized to the individuals choices. A mutual exchange is a privatized exchange between the consenting parties. You are correct with your definition but it doesn't invalidate mine.

Technically most countries are socialist or dictatorships with limited capitalism that is rigged and highly tied into the government.

I prefer Capitalism I over Capitalism II. The soundtrack of the second wasnt as good as the first one.

No, in fact I hate it when people are predujiced against capitals. Upper case letters need love sometimes too, ya know?

Hey, don't go strutting your capital letter privilege here. Every time some idiot capitalizes every frigging word I want to tear my eyes out.

The game was pretty good. Capitalism 2, not so much.

I love the niche group that remembers capitalism as a game :P. I miss that game so much lol
