Why I want to commence a new majority rule based on economic freedom? A new economic democracy is really need to the world to defeat extreme poverty, discrimination and disease. Before I enter on my article I desire to argue like, here's an Adam Smith quote. Smith said "civil government, so far as it is instituted for the security of property, is in reality instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor." Smith would have railed against giant corporations if he were alive today.

Hence, I am arguing in this article how to define economic capitalism. How do I define socialist economy? What would be my approach to conserve the universe? My focal point is an important aspect of the economic system. Because the trouble I have today is that the "Economy And Capitalism" of the economic and social system. Where I formerly knew as much about communism, Socialism as I know about capitalism. Today it is gruelling for me to instantly find anyone who has even read Lenin, much less a devastating review of him such as one finds in Solzhenitsyn. My article is focusing on capitalism also in the same direction. I am picking out here that the critique is a riddle making use of Churchill's famous statement about capitalism is the worst possible system except for all the others. In reality, there are two extremes. Total control of economic matters or totally "hands off" of economic matters.

In reality, every system is a compromise. I can argue there are limits which are moved past in large danger. I want to tell you in point of historical fact.

What I also see is that "capitalism" is an economic system. So much as an acknowledgement of a central reality: it is the accumulation of "capital" which allows investment but failed to ending poverty.

That such efforts usually go wrong is simple. That is, it tries very hard to tell people to "be free" in certain areas. Today I desire to argue why my economic politics would be a different then present economic model?.

Anyone who has played monopoly, or read Piketty, knows income inequality naturally grows. As it does, democracy shrinks because extreme wealth compromises government.

This is happening before your very eyes as big money buys influence, the courts favor corporate supremacy, income inequality soars, billionaires rule, the middle class sinks, and we have an authoritarian head of state with a cult-like following.

To slow this process down, in our case, elections need to install good leadership, labor unions need to bargain for worker rights, taxes should be progressive and apply to large fortunes. A strong safety net can make people secure.Such policy has been more successful in Scandinavian countries.

A huge military and a new nuclear arsenal amount to a misguided jobs program. It is important to repurpose it so that it does not bring down the economy.

The point is that unregulated capitalism is a wrecking ball for civilization and the climate. Appropriate policy including good law is a requirement for wise government. Short term thinking in politics makes reform unlikely anytime soon. http://gopiswrong.net/

Capitalism defeats democracy every time. For the very reasons you state. As for getting better in the election process, however, wealth trumps the people as their money speaks louder than words. The people become brainwashed by the money that buys the Presstitute Media Propagandists (PMP). I believe those of us paying attention are seeing this in action presently as the PMP is completely silent on Tulsi Gabbard, who not only bolted the DNC in 2016 but is for all of the things big money and the Deep State are against. Basically, if you control the election process you defeat democracy. Capitalism breeds greed and division among the people.

Amen! I agree with almost everything you have written.The proper term for what "we" have, in all advanced countries, is a "MIXED ECONOMY." The mix varies from country to country. Ours in America is subject to enormous roaring by our laughable "parties," political actors and TV talking heads.

A dose of Modern Monetary Theory tossed hard against the AUSTERITY jerks: House Freedom Carcasse, Miller, Mulvaney, McConnell and Trump could be used as the theory to resotre entitlements ad general welfare benefits.

But first, DEMS need to put up a tall white male liberal christian to get rid of Trump! Trump will be no pushover! To restore America requires a moral virtues campaign!
