We equate capitalism with freedom and democracy but evidence is accumulating the opposite is true. Concentrated wealth has eviscerated worker rights and income and has now moved into new fields of wealth. The capitalists have depleted our incomes and ability to consume so they’re moving in to take over public assets around the world. We’ll now have to buy our water, power, transportation, educations, and freedoms from them. Most likely, we’ll finance it from them. It’s an economic death spiral that needs to be discussed. Is extreme capitalism and the inherent consolidation of wealth and power the future we want?
