  •  I am. Capitalism needs to die. (7+ / 0-)

    It's an immoral, unethical and unsustainable system based upon theft.

    And "markets" are really just euphemism for the mechanics of economic apartheid.

    No one should have to live in poverty. No one. We are born once, live once, live a very short life, and it's unethical and immoral to allow a system that slots people into classes and dooms them accordingly, based primarily on the birth lottery.

    The only way to achieve social justice is to create an economic system that starts with equality as its base, creates on starting line for everyone, as the norm. Ours sacrifices billions of people to make a few million very rich. To let people born on third hit their triples or more.

    That's obscene.
