    From the simple act of criticism the essentials foundations for a change are born, I don’t detract from criticizing a system like capitalism so strong in our society, because I believe in its eventual fall. I also like to challenge society to travel in a path of breaking pre conceived notions and false stereotypes, that disguise themselves as dogmatic in the effort to keep the system working.
    .
    It makes no sense to just criticize and leave it at that, that would be an easy exercise and even considered intellectual cowardness, but presenting to the “ill-informed” (euphemism intended) populations others realities and open the repertoire of options, is no doubt necessary, its up to the orator if this task is done for personal enjoyment or to express its indignation.
    .
    The removal of fetishisms from society won’t be the battlefront or the hardest task, if someone believes that the division of power and wealth is fair, paradoxically will also understand that it can be reverted to a equalitarian state. The “gran el dorado” is shared between the system and the (unhappy), it lies inside of us, making this battle one trip to gain consciousness, the question is not if we can win, but how and what tools will we use.
    .
    The art of shocking the population with breath taking examples was taken from us, projected instead as something regular, part of a problem with no solutions, the banalization of the incorrect and financial eccentrism headed by the media, in our daily conversations, social networks, really take away a useful tool from our arsenal, but when the understandable meets face to face with honest resistance in large quantities, its unpredictability and bulletproof facet starts to fade, and fall like a sand castle.
    vote Bernie 2020!

    Well, you said you had "thoughts to fight it", and that it "makes no sense to just criticize and leave it at that", but unless I'm missing something I didn't see you actually present an alternative system, or describe how it would be more effective. What is your alternative, and in what ways would you make it's implementation turn out superior?

    since you're of good faith I will answer, I can't comment on a single post all the changes I would try to implement as you wouldn't make the same case with capitalism. but a look at socialism would be the best bet at that experiment. although is not bait, I did leave this answer partly unanswered.

    I respect that, becouse you did answer my question. and it looks like you're no satisfied with current society. a technocracy is no different from the plan I would like in use. it does owns it merits, but needs a society with conscious people, until we get to that stage it would be very hard to implement. based on knowledge we know about humans, it doesn't disrupt the thought that capitalism kills, or we should continue becouse... we humans derp...

    Honestly though, capitalism and social capitalist societies are the best that's been offered so far. On average, when communist and strict socialist regimes started incorporating capitalism into the mix, their GDPs, standards of living, population, education, and technologies all rose with it. Until something truly better comes along, it's definitely the lesser evil as of now.

    I wholeheartedly disagree, capitalism is a disease. it's killing people daily, and should never be consideree the "lesser of two evils" based on fabricated evidence, reality is that capitalism won the "ideological" battle partly on a human greed scale, the time to move on is up. I would love to expand the argument if you give me actual points of capitalism good doings.

    Everyone's motivated by money. Apple didn't invent the iPhone out of the goodness of their hearts. Same with medicine. These large companies are bankrolling a million scientists to come up with medicine for everything so they can make money. Very, very few people do things for other people because of empathy.

    Socialism doesn't work and i'm sure the pussified democratic socialism version Bernie practices won't work either. Capitalism isn't perfect but it is the best option to date with a couple of centuries of proof to back it up.

    fair point, but at what moment do we stop the greed? money is not a relative of productivity in a socialist system. actually what they do in the US is simple, the gog bankrolls the technology, to later sell to the big companies, you can argue its fair game, but I say. At what point do we want to stop this appropriation of resources? want a iPhone 40? cool, is that how people and the earth can handle?

    how ignorant, what's your proof of capitalism working? I'm waiting, you're running from a ideological debate, either from the lack of intelectual resources or you know ur wrong, so you proceed to repeat the same thing, under different levels of desmise.
