Thread Name: BS: Wall Street Protesters...
Subject: RE: BS: Wall Street Protesters...
Don...that is the problem, "regulated Capitalism" no longer provides the growth required to keep the economy solvent.
That is why we have witnessed the series of "booms" in the last couple of decades, these booms were not only the work of corrupt bankers and financiers, but actively encouraged by capitalist governments, as a survival mechanism.
What i am saying is that without systemic change, the whole protest movement is counter productive.
It reinforces the idea, that this system can be repaired by stopping the financial sector doing what they are supposed to do under Capitalism.
If economic growth falls, your standard of living and public servces fall with it, how many of your young protesters realise that?......now is the time to go for real change....and I mean the way people think.
