distribution of cash and opportunities between all, and a bit more of protection to those who haven't been the luckiest around?
Why is that so frightning to some - read: the Rich &
Lucky -, as I see over here in this thread?
A bit more compassion and a bit more equal sharing of chances, why the hell is campainging for a little more socialist distribution of chances and cash so frightning to those who already benefit so much because of their talents?
I don't get it.
If this post designates me as a commie - well so be it.
i don't think there is anything wrong with this thought at all... i used to think this way too... maybe one day still might...
but, looking at the current predicament as objectively as i can i would say that it is not capitalism we live in at the moment... capitalism was never even given a chance the moment you burn regulations by the truckload and allow criminals aka banksters responsible for pushing hundreds of millions into poverty worldwide to walk off scot free - all while some prick slaps you with a €160 for a late parking fine...
the modern western plutocracy is not really capitalism - although capitalism was an important tool in the rise of the creature we know today...
i do sympathise with you post though sunset, because the power structure in today's world scarily resembles the power structures during feudal ages...
