Capitalism Failed


Economic systems that exploit and plunder can't endure.

Economic/financial systems dependent on wars and predation eventually self-destruct. Western capitalism is no exception.

Money power runs things. War profiteering is policy. Ordinary people have no say. Exploiting them for profit is prioritized. Divisions between rich and poor grow. By some measures they're unprecedented.

Money power in private hands and democracy can't co-exist. Banking giants transformed Western societies into vehicles for wealth extraction. Corrupt politicians facilitate their criminality. In return, they're rewarded handsomely.
