    I am not spouting religion. I believe we have enough historical data to support my contention.

    And, I don't believe it conflicts in any way with the post you referenced. I only spoke to capitalism's ability to raise a standard of living. Whether we should use it to do so is another completely separate issue.

    The ecological destruction of our only home (Earth) is a two headed beast, and regulated capitalism with it's continuously rising standard of living (hence, increased depredation of resources) is, in my opinion, the smaller of the two heads. Our continuously rising population is the bigger culprit, and a much thornier issue to address.

    "Regulating Capitalism never works in the long term.  It's like putting a serial killer under house arrest."

    There may be some truth in this. However, we don't ignore murder just because we can't ever stop it completely. What are our options?
