Individual free enterprise driven by profit motive is not working for most people. To begin with, businesses larger than one owned and operated by a single nuclear family are not the enterprises of individuals. They require a community to do the work. Only the profits are individual.
This morning I read a linkdn article about how young people, especially college students could change their behavior to fit in to an economy that no longer has so much use for them as it did forty or fifty years ago. Should we change to fit a system that wants us to do the work that they may take the profit? Worse: if they can't profit by our hard work they'd as soon let us starve! Something has gone very wrong in Americatopia. Why do the majority still support a system that's increasingly dysfunctional for we the people and only works well for the parasites at the top of the food chain of our population?
It's bad enough that we do the hard work and they take the profits. That's intolerable. That it is tolerated indicates our weakness and cowardice It gets worse. We, the human race and most individuals, are dependent for food, clothing, shelter, medicine and almost everything else on a small subset of our population who control the enterprises that employ us to make the goods and services but care not if we live or die. Their individual profit taking on the work we do to support our lives is onerous. Their indifference to the survival of unwanted or no longer needed [for their profit] employees cannot be condemned sufficiently with words. That we are lain in docile submission to their rule illustrates our peculiar self destructive insanity.
Frederick Douglass said: "Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
