  •  Very hard to do (0+ / 0-)

    as anyone who has tried to start a business would know. It's a goal worth pursuing, but still very difficult in a capitalist society which basically gives enormous staying power to the wealthy, making new start ups without sufficient funding a perilous endeavor.

    Have you ever tried to get business financing?

    It's almost impossible for most. People usually put up their home equity (if they're lucky to have a home, much less a home with enough equity), thus risking everything their families have built up. And most new enterprises fail.

    That's capitalism.
