Is it obvious only to me that the nature of Capitalism is to concentrate wealth with a few big winners at the top? Interest (usuries of all sorts) foremost and profit on the labor of others a close second must result in so much money and wealth in the control of the elites that the majority of us will live in perpetual debt bondage. That's the story of civilization, which simply is the human condition. The question I've been trying to elucidate for the past half century follows.
How are we programmed and conditioned to accept the corporatist tyranny as inevitable, natural, good and righteous? We actually believe that so much wealth and money in the hands of so few is not a threat to the survival of all.
The only answer that makes sense to me is most are foolish enough to believe that because there's no law against getting rich that there is a significant probability they can do so. Then there's the willingness of the majority to accept the proposition that if they have a little more than some others they're really a winner. The acceptance of the "look around and see how bad it is for them" con is what seems to be the most effective [and cozening] argument the masters have devised to maintain control of their livestock.
No one but hopeless fools (like almost everyone) will challenge my assertions about concentration of wealth and population programming. So it's no surprise when even relatively good people like some of the leaders at the G7 conference support the creditors in the Greek economic crisis and demand austerity for the Greek people, instead of the debt forgiveness jubilee that could actually rejuvenate economies wherever implemented. Clean the slate and start concentrating wealth all over again. . . . Or, for a genuinely radical idea, actually solve the problem once and for all by taxing the rich to take back to the community that which we cannot live without and use the proceeds to create productive capacity and provide what is needed to live by and for the people.
To hell with the rich. Let the assholes work for their own living like the rest of us. > "We can have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both." - Louis Brandeis
