    that you support capitalism but not the cheating, fixing, and manipulating that the corporations are practicing.
    Capitalism is a good system that needs to be regulated to make sure fairness ensues.  It is a system easily manipulated for the benefit of the 1%.  Throughout our history we have had to rein in the manipulators and regulate them into having consciences.

      capitalism is about money, not ethics - but it is possible to make the consequences of doing a right, or at least socially useful, thing more profitable than the consequences of doing the wrong thing..
