A political system whereby the educated (rich) can expoit the uneducated (poor) to satisfy their own greed and lust for power. A system where a persons role in society is determined by the class he or she is born into. THIS IS MY MAIN PROBLEM WITH CAPITALISM. It is a natural progression from a dynastical system of government i.e from monarchy to the Bushes and Murdochs. Power and influence remains in the hands of the few ruling families. Relies on the ideas of social Darwinism, whereby corperations and nations behave like animals, competing with each other for resources (sound familiar?), and the fittest (or most ruthless and inhuman). The inevitable conclusion is that billions live in poverty while the lucky few live like kings. This new form of aristocrat treats those supposedly below him in the social heirarchy with disdain. Those with principals and compassion are ridiculed and treated as pariahs. With no central control or direction this will inevitably result in the squandering of the earths natural resources and the end of civilisaiton, unless a new, more efficient, fairer system is introduced. This is not communism (State controlled capitalism), and it is not anarchy. Capitalism cannot be sustained for much longer, although it did have one positive effect on humanity, modernisation through industrialisation. But its purpose has been fulfilled, the capitalists have to step aside and give the rest of us a go.
