poorconservitive is right about capitalism to a point and that point is when the rich are allowed to use their capital to take control over those who we elect to government positions for their own personal interests as nightwork4 has stated here.Sweetiepie is right about the workers getting a fair deal ,but as she says the unions or union bosses seem to have taken excessive liberties with their power over management. That said the biggest problem is the Federal Reserve Banks and interest on loans they create as well as interest on savings both of which cause inflation as they increase the money supply artifically rather than through the creation of wealth through work people do creating new goods and services.
World war 1 started after the Incometax went into effect ,the money of which likely went to pay for both sides of that war for munitions. The Incometax was supposed to be temporay until the end of the war ,but as we have seen through the years we seem to have war after war almost without end So,is Money and the Incometax the reason we have so many wars? I know war is the biggest money making Industry .War,oil and drugs -legal as well as Illegal.
There is a saying - "Out of disorder comes order"
We need to prevent those who created "dis"order in the first place and con-vinced others that it was order and used that very dis-order to take control as the disorder they created causes yet more dis-order.
