Quote:Yeah..i guess if you are one of those 400 most wealthy people then capitalism works great for you..you dont have to do shit while everyone else works to make you rich.

Surely capitalism must be defended with the lives of the poor and middle class...we should draft them into the military while the top 400 sells bullets to us and our enemies.

What else has been more successful than capitalism
And what do you propose? Hanging them and distributing their property?
It really does not matter. The people at the bottom and the middle would do the same if they had the chance, because that's what your system rewards.
Names, identities, peoples...It really doesn't matter.

Now that corporations are ruled as legal person, this means they can be imprisoned.

..but we know that isnt what they want...they want all of the rights of a citizen for their corporation, but none of the requirements to follow laws and such.

Can we draft a corporation personhood to fight in a war, or are they imune?

Can we now elect a corporation personhood into office...maybe even the president?
The constitution is very on who is a citizen, and you have to be BORN to be a citizen..

The people that are supposed to protect the majority of people against the abusive capitalists have failed because they were bought by the abusing capitalists. It's the national equivelent of the AIDS virus.

EXACTLY. Capitalism didn't fail. Our government is rigged against the majority and for the minority. Our government has failed us; in fact we have no government. The government exists solely for the protection of big business interests. Big business interests are not the interest of the working majority!

We need to re-create a new government. Radical re-design, I say!

I guess it depends on where one happens to be in the capitalist food chain.

IE ''YES"

That's what I'm trying to find out.


If making the rich richer and fucking the poor up the ass is his idea of success then he may have a point.

If that was the goal it has been accomplished..a few more years of this and 50 people in America will own more than 65% of everything....but isnt that the ultimate goal of capitalism? That one person ultimately becomes the winner...the king...the emperor...the god?
