  •  Very well put. (9+ / 0-)

    The most common excuse that the capitalists use for their greed is that it's simply human nature to be greedy.  They argue that if we were in their shoes we'd do the same.  The truth is that that capitalist system incentivizes sociopaths.  And I'd argue that those that rise to the top in the capitalist system are often the most greedy, uncaring, self-centered people on the planet.
