This is a fabulous FB page, that shows a lot of images and cartoons from the early 1900's ... focusing on much of the same social & economic issues we are seeing today... regarding poverty, homelessness, politics & banking....

just the pendulum swinging ... and imo, this may give insight to why ..."we have not escaped the grand oligarch plutocracy" ....

as quoted from struggleforfreedom80 ,

"Capitalism should be abolished and replaced by a society where the institutions are controlled democratically be the workers and the communities:"

reply,

  • well... why throw out the bad kid ... just because he is the black sheep... he can still help with some of the chores ...

  • Why not a duo system... one that focuses on fairness, sharing and social prosperity & growth ... and one that focuses on speculation, incentives & materialistic growth ?

  • The primary problem with Capitalism as is... is that it stagnates artistic creativity, promotes the creation of trash, pollution & the accumulation of wealth for the few...which ultimately stagnates economic growth & job opportunities....

  • The primary problem with Socialism as is... is that it stagnates materialistic creativity, invention and the expansion of overall world capital....which also stagnates economic growth & job opportunities for the impoverished nations....

  • Until the world is united without borders, we truly need both....

  • Currently, the primary reason both systems do not work well together in the same jurisdiction or country, is that one or the other controls the financial end... and therefore one or the other is taxed to support the other...

  • The immediate solution is simple ... support both a "Federal Reserve Bank" for supporting Capitalistic ventures... and a "Social Reserve Bank" for supporting the Art's and the needs...

  • New job creation would flourish ...

  • Then... we can move towards building a system that protects the earth and needs no borders or war...
