Too many shadows, whispering voices
Faces on posters, too many choices
If, when, why, what?
How much have you got?
--Pet Shop Boys
Nice rejoinder to escalating claims that our current economic system is 'capitalism.' The author also observes that, contrary to popular belief, capitalism is not based on 'rugged individualism' in dog-eat-dog fashion. Instead, capitalism is grounded in voluntary social cooperation.
What we have now is a system increasingly driven by political force.
