@SCRATCHY18 The traffic in “illicit vices” gives a better return to its investors than even the legalized vices of capitalism.
No, I believe in capitalism myself. But if there’s no way to get a piece of the pie for “the little guy”, it will all collapse. As poor people sicken and die from the excesses of unthinking consumption and destruction of the world in which we live, who will farm the worn-out land? How will crops and livestock be watered? Do the plutocrats understand that gold and diamonds are not a source of sustenance? They are ultimately worthless if they cannot buy what does not exist. And that is an unpleasantly bothersome fact.
