Hmm, in some ways, I do. I believe that people should work hard and earn what they have. I believe that we need a government that is compatible with individual liberties. But, I also don’t. I think we need more socialist components in our government. We’re not even in the top ten of most prosperous countries anymore. We’re 12th, I believe. Which isn’t awful. But we’re declining, and were declining fast. You know who is though? Socialist governments. You know what citizens have a better quality of life? Socialist. You know how we could minimize so much of the socioeconomic gaps in America? Socialist programs. As capitalists we produce for profit and give no fucks about use. In a socialist program/economy you produce for use. In capitalism no one cares if you fail. You just fail. It’s your responsibility, because the world is ran on the principle of meritocracy. They reward you if you provide them with something valuable. And even then, what you have to offer isn’t usually enough anyway. They don’t care if you have any disadvantages. If you’re not creating activity in our economy, they could care less. Why do you think they want to cut education programs (like art and music) that aren’t directly correlated to revenue. Why do you think they want to cut reforms and welfare? It’s because they don’t give a flying fuck about you if you are not fitting I to the economic niche that they want/need you to. They want to speed up whatever process they can to get you into a working position that benefits them. Our government cares about the money that you circulate right back to them. They DONT WANT to close the extremes of poverty and wealth. They want to maintain it. Why? Because if you have that gap, you have room to produce shit that people don’t need. You have room to create monopolies and oligopolies. You have room to capitalize on products marketed to different income classes. It is all about power and the employment of power and how they can exercise your spending. They want certain classes and social orders to not employ power, and others to employ power. Unfortunately, the socioeconomic gaps cause economic crises over, and over, and over again. We have asshats for government officials. We have greedy fucks operating the private/corporate enterprises basically regulating EVERYTHING we do, and are, and say, and buy, and eat. Just take a look at Monsanto. They regulate every single seed and every single crop out there. We are literally enslaved by a private business. And you think this capitalism is any better than communism? But people are SO worried about socialism?The government doesn’t care so long as they get theirs. Capitalist don’t care if they mindlessly run our resources to zero, so long as they’re constantly creating profit. Everything that you will do in your life comes back to profit. It’s fucking terrifying. Forget caring about people just like you, care about the profit.
If you really want to see another revolution, stick to strong capitalism. You’re literally about to see our world flip. Because we’re right at the edge of a total reform if we don’t find some type of balance.
