I believe capitalism can work. It creates for winners and losers, but allows for the so called losers to get back up and try again. Currently we do NOT have capitalism. Fair regulation, fair taxes, transparency, free gov't and no debt are not available to us and we need to repair this injustice. The wealth was split decades ago, much like a balloon becomes twisted, and over time the wealth becomes separated between the 99% and the 1%. Today we have a growing population, a pot of wealth that has shrank and being split amongst more people. More people need the system because the baby boomers are getting older, there's no jobs to fill by us because they're either gone overseas, replaced by automation and technology, or wages have been forced down so low that Quality of life is diminished, housing, food and transportation become difficult to afford. Many have student debt on top of all that. Those who don't fit the college model and normally would have entered extractive and manufacturing careers have found those jobs are gone overseas to cheap labor markets with bad worker safety and environmental regulations that endanger the future of those countries population, or replaced by machines. I like to think of myself as a pragmatist and I am on twitter @jdonnelly82. I have a masters in local economic development and regional planning, with a bachelors in geography and environmental planning. I am from a rural area, cut from the cloth of self-reliance and the golden rule, do onto others as you would want done onto you.
