Zakharra, I hope you are right in that the legal system is good, but I have lost my faith in it as it stands now. The monetary system seems to be a weak compromise to me as well, but I do hope that the proponents of it can make it work for a change if we are going to be stuck with it.
It's the only way to effectively give value for work. The barter system will never work for a high tech society. Which this is.
I agree the federal income tax was legalized. I had been illegal originally was my point. The IRS has never been "legal" per se, but exists strongly under current U.S. social contracts.
The IRS IS legal.
When stocks carry the same guarantees as a home mortgage, they'll impress me as legitimate.
If you have enough stock, yes they can match a home mortgage, but no one stock share will ever equal that. Nor should it.
You can't employ a person if you don't have money to pay them. Unemployment is a direct result of no money circulation. If money is stuck in a deposit, we all know the size of the bank accounts that do that.
You also cannot hire/pay people if no one is buying your product. The lack of money works both ways and you are forgetting that the wealthy spent
money too. They do not horde it and keep it safe and unspent.
Capitalism fails because all profit is guaranteed to be unfair. Just by quantization error along, a monetary trade for goods is guaranteed to short change one party or the other. Most successful businessmen have only figured out ways to consistently short change their customers. They are ill gotten gains in the end. If profit were fair, leaders would have the same amount of personal income as their followers. There is a reason money goes out of circulation and depression ensues.
Then by your definition, every single business man, stockholder and shareholder in a company is evil. Why do you see profits as unfair? People are willing to pay the cost for the item/service. What makes it unfair and evil? Most successful businessmen give their product for a FAIR price. They do not gouge people. They are not shortchanging them.
I do not see how profits can be fair if the owners of the company make the same income as the employeers. That's hardly fair. The owners deal with a lot more issues than the employees do and the most successful ones put a lot of work into making their business successful.
And again you're forgetting, or ignoring that wealthy people spend a LOT
It's obvious to me good and evil play out in our legal and monetary systems. Depression is a sure sign of greed and evil. Wrongful convictions and repeat offenders also demonstrate evil at play in our legal system.
So far you've only posted stuff that shows your view of the 'evils' of the economy. There have been business tycoons that have gone to jail in the last few years.
