Capitalism

Capitalism vs. Socialism

Communism is blight

Capitalism is cancer.

The recent economic crisis provides am example of capitals has a tendency to attract capital with the investment in derivatives.

Capital requires control, with a certain perverse allegiance and vigilance to its bidding.

Capital is useful in nurturing democracy, but when capital concentrates in the hands of the few, it appropriates the invisible hand of the free enterprise system and makes it the invisible hand of politics and government; democracy suffers. Those who control capital control the Capital; money interest skews the political process. It is no longer a democracy of one-person one vote; the almighty dollar is the measure of your vote.  Capitalism at its best provides the lifeblood to society and the community, but at itís worst, like a cancer it sucks the lifeblood out of the community.  Unless capital is democratized we the citizens will be at the mercy of this interest.  Sharing the fruits of capital in a way that reflects the contribution to itís production.  A persons labor does not just produce the product, it also contribute to the creation of profit.

To define the difference between communism and capitalism is to characterize the former as a control economy dominated by a bureaucratic oversight, while the latter is controlled through the forces of the free market. While it is true that the bureaucratic control of the economy constrained and ultimately destroyed the aspirations of communism for all people to share in the fruits of their collective production, it is a myth that capitalism will provide the aspirations of the citizens to achieve the American Dream complete with the protections and promises embodied in the founding visions.

Communism had this threat of collectivism, capitalism is said to be the antithesis, but look around folks, the bottom line mentality of capitalism is to make a profit this demands standardization and has created homogeneity, the stepsister of collectivism.  

 Capital does not always produce jobs.  It is the purpose of capital to make a profit.  Capital will chase capital and will continue to increase wealth as the economy stagnates. Capital has a tendency to attract capital, pooling in ever larger reservoirs. These vast pools of capital provide the power to promote capitals vested interests. Whether it is in real estate, military production, medicine, oil, transportation or high tech.
