I think Keynes nailed it.

“Capitalism is the theory that the worst people, acting from their worst motives, will somehow produce the most good”. -- John Maynard Keynes

Isn't that the kind of deception sociopaths would try to sell us?

The projection of this whole “left wing” and “right wing” contradiction is a false dichotomy designed to keep the masses lost on either end of the political spectrum, never finding the truth, which lies somewhere in between. That may be a real brain buster for those who still have their head wrapped around the idea that Communism and Capitalism are diametrically opposed. In actuality, Communism is nothing more than State Capitalism. In the Communist nation, the Capitalists come in the form of the government. While in the Capitalist nation, the rulers are the private corporations. Communism and Capitalism are two sides of the same coin that in the end bear the same result, which is the oppression of the people under a ruling elite. Nowhere more than Capitalist America are people so hopelessly enslaved under the belief they are free. For all practices and purposes, de facto Communism pervades the cultural and economic life in America. Completely unbeknownst to the average American, it is shocking just how many fundamentals of Communism are legally enforced in the “land of the free.” -- source

Communism is state capitalism. That's exactly the current situation in the USA. Don't think so?

My son received a statement from an on-line retailer today listing all his purchases for the year. This is the first year this has happened. The retailer claims they are required by law to send this information to the buyer and to the state where the buyer lives, so that the buyer will pay the state sales tax on his listed purchases! There was never a requirement to pay state sales tax on Internet purchases in the past, but now that on-line sales are exploding, the state governments have their hands out. By hook or by crook, they want "their" slice.

State capitalism is communism.

When we get right down to it, all of the profits that capitalism has generated over the centuries are probably due to capitalists not having to cover the full cost of their production. They passed the cost on to the environment and to third parties and pocketed the savings as profit. -- source

That is from an insider, the former United States Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under President Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts.

The costs of capitalism to external third parties cancels the benefits of capitalism gained by the first two parties (i.e. the buyer and the seller) several times over. That phenomenon is a widely unrecognized consequence of capitalism, because we are typically taught that there are only two parties involved, buyer and seller, when in fact there is a cost borne by many who are completely unconnected to and often unaware of the transactions that were made.

What that means is that capitalism is an inherently losing proposition for humanity. The cheerleaders for capitalism will dismiss this idea as utter rubbish, but that is simply a demonstration of the power of brainwashing. The insanity of this world, so highly dependent on capitalism, is proof that capitalism is a destructive force.

And as I am fond of saying, "Money ruins everything."

I believe if our species is to survive it will necessarily be without the planet-raping rat race of capitalism which keeps everyone stepping on each other’s heads, toiling to make more stuff for more people to consume regardless of whether that stuff helps the sum total or hurts it.

Precisely right, in my opinion. Capitalism is bad for humanity. It is another system that sociopaths bend to their evil agenda of enslaving humanity. It allows them to justify their belief that "Greed is good", which likewise allows them to justify their belief that sociopaths are good. It also helps them shape people of empathy in their destructive image.

Michael Tellinger's concept of contributionism is a far better medicine for humanity that the poison sociopaths are incentivizing us to ingest (i.e. capitalism).

The producers of the documentary “Zeitgeist”, made it clear that to keep people enslaved physically, you have to house them, feed them and clothe them. Through the introduction of money as a tool of enslavement, people need to work for money; but in the process they have to feed, clothe and house themselves. What a brilliant and simple twist in the clever enslavement of humanity – with money.

Yes, money is a control structure. Its purpose is to control us. The ruling sociopaths are totally oriented to exercise power and control over us, as their psychology leads them to believe that this is their primary purpose in life. As long as sociopaths lead us, we will never be free.

The biggest orgy of funny money is seen in the U.S. where the Trump administration and Congress have approved the printing of trillions of dollars to prop up corporations and banks. Meanwhile crumbs are being thrown at millions of workers and their families.

In just five weeks, unemployment has hit a staggering 26.4 million people in the U.S. – and that’s the official figure. The real level is doubtless much higher. It is reported that the job losses have wiped out all the employment gains made over the past decade since the last financial crisis in 2008. As with the present crisis, the U.S. government arranged trillion-dollar bailouts for banks and industries back in 2008-2009. It didn’t last long until the next binge.

In truth is this is a familiar pattern over the past century where the economy is continually salvaged from ruin by the government at the expense of ordinary workers, small businesses, and taxpayers. The recurring rescue is proof that the system of private capital and supposed free markets is a myth. The system typically privatizes profit for an elite while socializing the losses for the mass of people. It has always been a version of “socialism for the rich”. -- source

I have been taught my entire life to believe capitalism is the best economic system in the world.

That alone is enough for me to realize I have been lied to my entire life.

Who is it behind the brainwashing? The ruling sociopaths who own the central banks and the creation of money. They benefit.

Another 1.48 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week, according to the US Labor Department. Economists expected 1.3 million initial filings as the nation grapples with a coronavirus resurgence.

The new filings brought the total number of claims since mid-March to 47.3 million. -- source

Unemployment in the USA goes from 26.4 million (prior post) to 47.3 million in two months? And it's likely to get worse?

It sounds like The Greatest Depression. But that's what the ruling sociopaths planned in order to bring in their New World Order, which the bulk of humanity is not going to like.

Why do we put up with this BS? The ruling sociopaths are probably no more than 100 people. The normal people in this world number in the billions. But the normals been brainwashed to do almost anything for a paycheck, which is paid in currency the ruling sociopaths create out of thin air. Therein lies their power, the power of the central banks.

End their control of the monetary system, and you end your enslavement.

As long as human behavior remains driven by the pursuit of profit, we will continue to see steadily rising amounts of war, ecocide, oppression, exploitation and mass-scale manipulation, because those things are profitable and/or protect the interests of those reaping the profits. We will never, ever profit our way out of any of those problems. The pursuit of profit will only ever make more of them.

That, in a nutshell, is why capitalism is bad. It serves the ruling sociopaths, and economically enslaves the masses. It's very simple — capitalism favors slavery. The propaganda we've been blanketed with all our lives that capitalism is the best system in the world ... is total BS. Well, maybe not total BS, since it is the best system in the world ... for the sociopaths!
