There will never be a fair system in place. Cap. Comm. Social. all have their faults.

Only some people are greedy.... the inhuman warmongers and their ilk.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

Thank You for making me feel much better.

Big trends like inequality do not change without big things like wars, revolutions.


Trust me.....you do not want the changes.





I've made my living, Mr. Thompson, in large part as a gambler. Some days I make twenty bets, some days I make none. There are weeks, sometimes months, in fact, when I don't make any bet at all because ...

I don't believe that "Human nature" is greedy.
People are the way they are because of the "system" ...

Greed is not a human trait, but competitiveness is - greed is simply an extension of this trait, i.e. competitiveness for the value-based commodity called money.

Mankind would have never developed to the extent we have now if there was no competitiveness - the weaker genes of the species would not have been so clinically rooted out, allowing the stronger genetic material to replicate and advance.
This trait alone is a strong reason why (in my thinking) that social-based political systems will fail, as there is no allowance or outlet for the competitive nature of mankind.

Yes, only some people...or yet all politicians and their ilk.
The people in power are ripping off  ...

Totally agree..... everywhere I went I found the ordinary people well meaning and generous, albeit sometimes mistaken in their views. It is the so called elite that is rotten to the bone.

Big trends like inequality do not change without big things like wars, revolutions.

It seems that is the only way to solve this serious problem.
I wonder if there is a peaceful solution....
like the people in the US voting out the "status quo"
or.....
China sets the bar and manages to control the negative affects of capitalism

Here is to that dream
