A year later, and they never noticed this.

Right-libertarianism will die out sooner or later. As wealth and power concentrates more and more into the hands of private tyrannies, more people will abandon the idea that deregulation and giving billionaires tax cuts, is the solution.

Right-wing libertarians advocate laissez-faire capitalism -- an intolerable, tyrannical and unsustainable system:

I wish I could believe that.

But I find it's still spreading throughout the World.

It isn't just about the US or the Pauls.

Not for very long.

Unregulated capitalism will never happen. As NC said, the wealthy would never permit it -- and certainly not the general population. This current state-capitalist system must be dismantled at some point. The system is not sustainable. The nature of capitalism is that wealth accumulates more and more into the hands of the wealthy. That means that more people, not just in the US but also globally, will be struggling to make ends meet. Capitalism is also an increasing threat to the environment. These trends can't go on forever.

At some point capitalism will be replaced by a more democratic and sustainable society. The libe(R)tarians can print as many copies of "Atlas Shrugged" as they want, sooner or later the general population will expose this ideology for the scam that it is.

Getting rid of Capitalism won't be easy, though. It's going to take time and hard work

Unfortunately, we are losing the luxury of time.

And I forgot to add our recent polar vortex.

Time's running out, I agree. But as the corporations gain more wealth and power and continue on with their destruction of the environment, the more people will have to rise up against corporate dominance. An increasing number of people will figure out that the right-wingers sold us snake oil: neoliberalism. How long we're stuck with the destructive and immoral system we have now, depends on all of us.

You must understand that most of the Worlds population, has never heard the term, global warming, let alone Chomsky.

The libe(R)tarians are still expanding,

Well, sometimes it's enough to just experience capitalism for a while.People don't always need to know all the terms in order to rise up. But we should of course try our best to enlighten and educate the have-nots.
