Do not confuse capitalism with corporate theocracy.

From Meriam Wbster

Capitalism:
: an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market


Not one of us, nor several generations before us, has ever lived in a capitalist society.

Plutocracy:
: government by the richest people

: a country that is ruled by the richest people

: a group of very rich people who have a lot of power

Sound familiar?

A simple study of American history will reveal to anyone how quickly the ideology of a Democratic Republic run by the people failed.

As long as we buy, sell, and live our lives with their money, we will be slaves.

As long as we accept their ownership of our labors to pay their debts and run their wars, we will be slaves.

As long as we obey the laws established by their (owned) government so that they may reap the benefits, we will be slaves.

But what the heck eh? At least they let us sit around bitching on the internet.
