Modern society however developed stronger ethics and morality that in such natural state, Rousseau/ Hobbes speaking, we werent capable of developing because we were too primitive/ indians.
I am not saying that capitalism will last forever, but I think for the actual moral development is the best system we have, however, in the future, I am capable of changing my idea to something closer to socialism. The thing I believe is: society wasnt prepared to socialism when it struck Russia because neither we had: the technology to live greater lifes, the morals/ethics or even the ambientalism idea we have today ( they created a pollution monster called Russia and now China without any respect for the environment- yet, its more socialism than capitalism).
I agree with everything here except the bold part.
This is only what they want people to believe.
Imagine how many people are starving and living on the edge of poverty today. They are minds, creative power going to waste.
Imagine if those people didn't have to worry about what their children will eat for dinner. Would they not be able to put their minds to better use then? For the benefit of whole humanity.
