from Naked Capitalism > Illargi:

"I don't think you can argue that capitalism itself is the issue. This is about the erosion of checks and balances, laws and regulations, the erosion of a society's ability to hold people responsible for what they do, whether they operate in the political field or in private business.

"And those same issues are just as relevant in any communist or socialist society. Unless you're very careful day after 24/7 day, all political systems tend towards ceding control to ever more psychopathic individuals. In the exact same way that bad money drives out good. In short, it's not about 'them', it's about us. It's the psychos who want that power and that money more than anyone else, but it's us who let them have it. While we're watching some screen or another."

It's true: the control freaks are psychopaths and the problem is that we cede our power to them because 'That's just who they are!' But that's not the whole truth. Built in to capitalism is the profit of banks and billionaire investors in debt and product flow that take debilitating percentages of economic transactions large and small. The profits of BIG CAPITAL are a drag on the real economy that distributes necessary goods and services. While banking and investment are necessary, their excessive profits are harmful to the process they are supposed to facilitate. So much so that they are more damaging today than all the tyrants and terrorists since the beginning of civilization. They're the most dangerous enemy and threat to survival the human race has ever faced. The answer is to confiscate their ill gotten gains and do all financial services of, by and for the people on a non profit basis. That's the best way to reduce the costs imposed and parasitization by psycho elites.

We must save ourselves from ourselves by refusing to allow our masters to be so.

The Elites are treating the World like an old Beater Car that would be too expensive to repair in order to Pass Inspection one more time.Like an asshole automobile owner,they have never spent one single dime on Maintainence,or one single minute worrying about Safety,Thrift or the Future.Unlike an automobile owner,there is no easy way to restore the World economy-and no way to go buy a new Planet when this one is worn out.Also,an asshole vehicle owner can reasonably hope to not be in the vehicle when it doesn't work anymore or fails in catastrophic fashion.The Elites will still be contained within this World when Multiple System Failure-caused by them-begins to occur.

Isn't it comforting that the morons who we're allowing to kill us will die with us and are too stupid in their greed and avarice to see it. And we're too moral to take their money and power away from them for the common well being. A world so sad is better off dead. The meek and cringing cockroaches and rabbits [insects and small prey mammals] will inherit the Earth. It's just like Jesus said it would be. Glory be to the Lord Savior.

Could be the Machinations of Bastet,the Goddess of the Cats.Without Cats,Humans could never have developed Agriculture in Egypt and Mesopotamia and carried on to colonize every corner of the Planet.When Humans colonized every corner of the Planet-they took Cats With Them.Cats probably could not have spread to every continent-including Antarctica-without help.It is possible that Cats might be able to become the New Crown of Creation when all of us are gone...

I think you got it. We serve at the pleasure of cats. But why did they direct us on such a self destructive path. If they hadn't lured us away from hunting and gathering in the past ten thousand years after hundreds of thousands spent in paradise, we'd still have a successful culture.

What were those cats thinking of?!

World Domination.They are Well on their Way.All they need do now is Purr whilst their Great Patsy destroys Itself.Humans were foolish to Wish for Help with the problem of Rodents destroying their Grain Stores.
