It would seem that capitalism would be the best economic structure. And in theory, it really is. Promoting a free market in which anyone can compete, the opportunities are endless. But in our society, greed, fascism and the need for power has terminated capitalism and instead replaced it with a fluid Corporatism. This is to not only perpetuate money to the "higher tiers", but also to control and keep the mass majority of people "in check". This is in turn should be viewed as a violation of our economic infrastructure and our human rights, and here is why.
Firstly, capitalism promises anyone to engage in the "free market". This means that you and I could start a local business that targets it's community for consumers. Yes, technically you can still do this, but in our state of corporatism, it's not likely that you are going to get far. Why? When a Wal-Mart or Target or Michaels enters the area, the hardware ...view middle of the document...
Anybody who has worked at these giant retail stores can tell you it's hell. Say you worked at Wal-Mart. You are underpayed, you have no healthcare benefits, and above all you have to work HERE now instead of the business that is now crushed under the presence of this super store. You are nothing but a slave to this corporation, because every dollar you make ends up going back into the store, because hey, you don't have enough time or money to shop anywhere else. It becomes this endless cycle of exploitation, and it's not like they "can't help it". According to Business Insider, Wal-Mart grossed over 400 Billion dollars last year, and that's just in profit. They should be forced by law to pay their employee's more, as Wal-Mart seems to violate human rights all the time. But, the government has yet to say anything. Why?
For starters, corporatism is a pyramid. Money sits on top, as it is the only god these government bureaucrats worship, underneath are our leaders and church officials (who lie, and lie again!) underneath that are our lovely company CEO's and aristocrats, below that lies the police force and military, and all of us? We hold that pyramid up. We put our money into corporations like Coca-Cola, Wal-Mart, McDonalds, who give large sums of money back to the government. In return, the government grants support of these corporations, letting them get away with slavery, cut corners, pollute the earth, and undermine our very economic establishment.
So what's the point of all of this? Power. These corporations go hand in hand with our government, and they are completely aware of what they are doing. Corporations control every aspect of our lives. You can't escape it. Try going one day without coming into contact with something branded. It's impossible. Your clothes, your toothbrush, your car, your phone, your television, even your place of living is the result of some greedy corporation. Advertisements bombard us everywhere we roam. The more money we put into these corporations, the more these powers control us. They keep us at the bottom tier, unable to rise up. And for what? Money. The most useless, meaningless, and insignificant burden we are faced with.
