  •  Pure nonsense. (8+ / 0-)

    Capitalism creates economic apartheid. That is its natural tendency. It functions as one big hoover, extracting wealth from workers, consumers and the earth and concentrating it at the top.

    Businesses are top down enterprises, authoritarian, anti-democratic. Capitalism just takes that and multiplies it across the globe, exports it, exports that apartheid.

    Capitalism destroys ecosystem after ecosystem as well, because it must grow or die, and it can't survive without more and more and more consumption.

    Already, the richest 20% of the world consume 85% of all resources. So your fantasy about the supposed uplift for the masses is just that. Pure fantasy. Three billion people live on less than $2.00 a day and one billion starve.

    That's capitalism in a nutshell.
