The Destroyer, The Preserver And The Creator.

I would like to see two qualities in men more these days...
The nature of man is competition and the nature of competition is the root of Capitalism...
I really doubt a system that has been around since the 5th millenia B.C. Is failing, what's happening is the destroyer and the creators of business are dying out...
Too many preservers are keeping businesses alive without competition...
That's not something that should be solved by Taxes it's something that should be solved by COMPETITION!

I seriously doubt Wal-Mart is taking over the world and if they did what would they do? Provide food at low, low prices?
The belief that these businesses should be regulated is getting a little annoying to hear about...
If mega corporations are taking over and we revert to a society that puts corporations under the ownership of the proleteriat (Or at least the government saying the word middle and lower class a lot) what happens?
They took over.
All at once.
Just. Like.. That.

I know I know communism isn't the goal of the left only more monitered business but the thing about Marxism is that government tends to have a snowball effect...
It starts growing and gets bigger and bigger and bigger, as feudalism becomes capitalism, which becomes welfare capitalism, which becomes socialism and eventually communism.
Which never works.
The government never goes away and remains oppresive...

We don't need a government reform we need a human reform...
We need a new set of morals like Nietsche suggested...
We need to stop preaching love, equality and fairness to our children we need to teach the self-control, ambition, honesty...
We need to stop pandering to the poor... they have as much oppurtunity as anyone else here if only they're were more rich allowed in the world we may have pulled through our consumerism... but no... instead people don't have dreams anymore... they get jobs building things visionaries imagine...

You do realize that Nietzsche was obsessed with power,and what we have now is already his system,the preaching of love,equality,fairness was almost always on paper.Wars begun because of the fight for power,people have died because of the ambitions of the leaders.
We are already eating each other alive because of the competition...in everything.

About the poor people issue.It;s mostly about social conditioning,if someone lives in a poor family,he needs to jet a job early,he will give up on school,his parents will encourage him to work instead of studying and the kid will obey,because it's just a kid.

In many countries,actually in all countries they are areas that are quite poor and people work a lot and they are still poor,not everyone has the same opportunities,someone from Eastern Europe will born in the rural area will never have the same education nor job opportunities as someone born in Uk or any other rich country.

Not to mention about countries in Africa where people are starving and then tell me that they have the same opportunities like you.Frankly I have no idea on what planet you are living.

no the root of capitalism is competition. not the other way around. man would not compete if there were no money to compete over...get it?

I agree with what I understood. Our current president does talk about "classes" of people unlike anyone before him that I can remember... we sound less like America all the time. Then he must catch himself, and throws in a comment that sounds normal, to keep us all falling asleep thinking "all is well". I don't like him and don't trust him and it has nothing to do with his skin color. He's simply not qualified for the job.

well he's not any newer than anyone else... basically it comes from the platonian book the republic the ideas of a daddy like caretaker of a country, nevermind the fact that governments fail constantly... 250 years they had to make the post office work and its still broke, cash for clunkers, Fanny Mae, Freddie Mac, Welfare, Healthcare, Obamacare, they constantly fail and refuse to admit it....
The only time an organization has worked was when people not politicians ran it...
