Wasn't fictional Ayn Rand characters endorsing Marxist cartoons one ofi the 7 signs of the apocolypse?

The "current state of capitalism" is that we don't live in a purely capitalist society. We live in a sort of pseudo-capitalist-socialist-corporate-kleptocracy. When you state things as they really are it makes it a lot easier to see the problem.

The problem is deeper that "capitalism". The problem is "positive-interest currency". If have a Money system that is based on Debt + Interest, you have a fundamental problem. Where does the money for the interest come from? Answer: Pain. Either the land gets raped, or people are slaves, or businesses (or people) go bankrupt.

THAT is the fundamental structural instability. There will always be more money owed than money that actually exists. Someone has to lose for others to win.

There is no such thing as "pure" capitalism, outside of Randroid fantasy, and people who make appeals to such flatulent nonsense wouldn't recognize Adam Smith if he rose from the grave and whacked them over the head with a copy of Wealth of Nations.

Hey, guys! Guys! Listen to this!
-What?
-I'm a Marxist and I've discovered the system is fucked!
-Wow, no shit? Thank you for the information, Mr. Marxist detective...

If that pile of meaningless banter is the product of 40 years of an intelligent man's efforts to make functional sense of marxism, I'm not betting on a resurgence of support any time soon.

oh yeah, how about that then. you tell me what to do, and I'll do it for a ramshackle shelter and a loaf of sand bread, and we'll all be happy with a BEAUROCRACY deciding how goods and services should be allocated. I really enjoy standing in lines anyway.

that was only as pretty as the story of stuff, and a lot less important.

@9, B-U-R-E-A-U-O-C-R-A-C-Y. "Beaurocracy" is when you have government by dapper Southern gentlemen courting ladies. Very inefficient. That said, you are online. You have no excuse to spell big words improperly. However, that error does lend interesting insight into the rest of your postings.

@9 " a BEAUROCRACY deciding how goods and services should be allocated."

No one is suggesting that. Please take your straw-man argument and paranoid red scare delusions elsewhere.
