Pure Capitalism is Immoral… September 23, 2018

Unrestrained capitalism cannot be allowed to prevail. Pure capitalism is completely oriented toward profit. Pure capitalism cares about nothing else.

Pure capitalism will:

  1. Exploit human resources with a stark result
  2. Exploit natural resources without regard for the future
  3. Use politicians to pursue foreign resources, urging war where necessary
  4. End with the planet devastated and dead

This is why we need a strong government run by politicians that have not been bought by corporate or private concerns.

What needs to be done?

  1. Politicians that have been bought by corporate interests or by privileged rich individuals must be identified and purged from the government
  2. The EPA needs to be given wider powers to stop exploitation of natural resources and control what we have left
  3. Conservation and recycling of resources rather than discarding in landfills must become part of the national psyche
  4. Corporations that have been found guilty of bribing politicians or of buying politicians must be banned from doing business in the U.S.

End of preliminary analysis.

    You make some great points/suggestions. Reading this led me to explore the meaning of true capitalism and I came across this article which really helped me to understand what capitalism is. https://money.howstuffworks.com/capitalism.htm The author defines different types of capitalism outside of pure capitalism. Looks like we have a finance capitalism and a monopoly capitalism. Thanks for the thought provoking read.

    The main issue pertinent to capitalism is its tendency to exploit the labor class while enriching an already rich upper class.
