on Capitalism



I'm not totally against capitalism. I think it's probably the best economic system humanity has known so far. However, the fact is, it still has it's flaws. It is an economic system that will evolve over time to become healthier to society at large. As of now, it's becoming maladaptive to American society (obesity, poverty, drug abuse, consumerism, white collar crime, oil, etc,).

Capitalism requires a broad lower economic class. Anyone in America can work hard, save money and climb the ranks of social class. But, Imagine if our schools taught this at an early age. People would stop spending money on frivolous things. Businesses would close down. People would loose thier jobs. It would end our economy as we know it. This is the problem with capitalism, it promotes virtual economic enslavement.

On top of that, an economic system (like capitalism) requires the psychological projection of value on something which has no physical significance. The Dollars value is relative to perception. It provides a certain sense of social survival, but non the less, the belief in money is a religion requiring faith. If you are a religious person, you should question you're own motive for economic wealth.

I not saying that we should NOT be wealthy, but we should just be mindful about where our money goes. I think the social infrastructure in , as Dubya would say it, "Amerca" has begun to decay because of the poor decisions we make about where we place out financial capital. Let's spend more money on education, and truly free the citizens of America.
