I agree with you but capitalism resists or perverts any attempt at temperance because it is always looking out for number one. Truth is, it's been so successful that many organisations now have more money, influence and resources than some countries and I think that overwhelms and intimidates government. It has far too much influence on governance, economics (policy) and society. That's my concern. Capitalism is fairly good in the market place, where it belongs, but should not get into the business of running governments or setting society's social agenda. It is far too self interested.
I'd like to believe that such a hungry beast could have some constraints applied so that it is less sociopathic, but is it possible?
Don't forget that we are still living through one of the biggest economic experiments of the (previous) century: the Federal Reserve (a privately owned corporation), and not forgetting Alan Greenspan's part in it's latter day reincarnation.
Whole-scale self interest at the cost of everyone on the planet. Yay globalisation.
I hope we can Gabriel, but we may have to start we the hearts and minds of people so they stop feeding the beast and giving it all the power and money in the world.
Great talking to you, but I must get to bed so I can get up early for work (have to pay off some of the worlds' debt, "This money's for the debt, ok? Don't go spending it on Mercedes or cocaine, you got that?" haha).
Keep working on those shackles, we'll need them.
