Let’s take the mask off the monster. We don’t trust or admire capitalism anymore. We just celebrate rich people’s wealth instead. Whether we have any or not, that’s what Americans are encouraged to do in this so called Christian Nation. We love money and as the tide is going, the nation’s vast wealth will never be shared with the people.
Corporate greed has sold us out and created a monster in Asia called China, communism for the entrepreneur as they call it. Corporate America won’t be able to compete with China because of their unlimited capitalistic avarice but we rest assured our military will take care of us. Sorry to sound cynical but it’s the way it is! Until we start to look at life from a perspective of truth, we will continue to lie to ourselves and live in a delusional world that never goes right or makes sense.
To fix the situation, all the right wing hate radio lies about capitalism have to go. They don’t work never have never will! Today, the right wing media work unabashedly for the cheat, the scoundrel and the swindler but not the average Joe.If we had a system that paid people a living wage, we wouldn’t have a need for the government that gives so much aid to working class people. Pay people what their worth and not what you can get away with. We are now learning how much patience the American people for how long the system can sustain itself with unlimited abuse.
We need to quit celebrating other people’s fortunes and seek to establish a democracy again! When you have a democracy, you have an equal say, equal input, and equal decision-making powers. One person one vote is the opposite of the currently ascendent “money is free speech” concept.
We should celebrate successful people and not the money they make. We can celebrate their character, intellect and compassion when they show it, instead of the money they hoard. America has come to celebrate the wrong things and it has taken a harsh toll.
