  •  These "rules" were not delivered (0+ / 0-)

    written on stone tablets on the slopes of mount sinai... What I think is being said here, and someone correct me if I am wrong, is that the rules and laws in question are immoral and injust... and must be changed.

    But the point is moot. The system itself must be changed or radically modified, and a system can't be rebounded from inside the same system. What the legalists here and elsewhere don't seem to understand, is that capitalism, and socialism for that matter, are economic systems...neither is enshrined in our fundamental laws, and constitution. Wanting to change our economic system is not the same as calling for the overthrow of a government. Continuing to conflate them will almost certainly require a revolutionary rather than an evolutionary solution.
