Capitalism is a system of inequality. I'm not sure why you expect anything but inequality.
Capitalism is a system of greed. I'm not sure why you expect anything but greed.
Capitalism is a system of concentration of power. I'm not sure why you expect anything but concentration of power.
If you are against these things, the only solution is to end capitalism.
But the only thing you currently stand for is not liking inequality, power, and greed and you also stand for not being specific about what to do about it.
It makes no sense.
Be bold. Demand actual solutions. Demand that we replace capitalism with democracy, a system where power rests with everyone equally: equal votes, equal treatment under the law and EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL EFFORT.
If income was allocated democratically, and people were no longer treated like heads of cattle where your entire standard of living and quality life is dictated by your ability to sell yourself in the market, everyone would be wealthy. There would be no poverty or middle class or homeless or uneducated. And there would be little crime.
If income was allocated equally, everyone would get paid $127,000 per year.
Or if you wanted to pay the people who did the difficult jobs that required greater mental or physical effort twice as much as the rest of the jobs, everyone would get paid $115,000 per year and everyone who worked in science, computers, engineering, medicine, construction, mining, or farming would get paid $230,000 per year.
When every citizen has access to a job with those incomes as a right, there would be no social problems.
But instead, you guys go on tv proudly declaring your lack of a plan or goals or demands or solutions.
