[hat tip to Brian O'Nolan, aka Flann O'Brien aka Myles na gCopaleen, an Irish novelist and humorist of the last century]
Your definition is the left-wing view of capitalism. It is used by democrat lawmakers to villainize wealthy private owners of successful companies.
I agree that some capitalists are motivated by power, but that isn't the definition of a capitalist. The real issue here is the notion that we can each have our own definition of a word based on our own beliefs. When that happens, words lose their meaning and value in communication altogether. How can any of us understand words spoken if we keep changing the meaning to suit our own beliefs?
Certainly the title on enough bar manuals.
