    Capitalists are driven by a blind imperative to pursue the most accessible and immediate and highest possible profits, no matter how irrationally they’re obtained, and regardless of their personal desires. They can’t care whether or not what’s produced is useful or good. For destroying the environment to maximize profits, executives get promoted. For changing their policies out of concern for the environment, and making less profit, they’d be replaced.

    And again, we can see that capitalism’s most vicious critics understand exactly nothing about it. Ignorance and vicious bigotry are the foundations of Ms McMillan’s ideology.

    And that’s exactly why I’m not some soulless, sociopath in a Brooks Brothers suit!

    I don’t know Stephanie, I think you are thinking more of the ‘50s or 60’s when the big corps could and did do pretty much what they wanted. Like Al Capp’s cartoon character, General Bullmoose (a frothing at the mouth capitalist) whose favorite saying was, “What’s good for General Bullmoose is good for the USA.” However, more and more these days companies get social brownie points by being “green” – recycling, using solar power, using sustainable resources, putting the temp employees in dumpsters so they don’t clog the plumbing if they try to flush them, stuff like that. That being said it is almost a necessary business practice to have a couple of big guys on the payroll who can “visit” a recalcitrant buyer/seller and arrange for an unfortunate shaving accident if they don’t see the light, but they have to dispose of the results in an environmentally friendly manner. Maybe if Frank would hit the gym he would still have a shot at the job.

    @ Night Gaunt49 Yeah, the 1850’s maybe, you know, when I was just a kid. But the 1960’s were pretty bad also. In the late 60’s there were boat trips to Mount Vernon. At the dock of our 1st presidents home the water was a putrid green color and there were signs telling you not to let the water come in contact with your skin and “harmful or fatal if swallowed.” Now the Potomac has been cleaned up enough that you can fish in it and even eat the fish. Unless of course a politician has fallen in, then they have to cordon it off for 48 hours.

    I just watched the History Channel program (previously shown, I believe) about “the men who built America,” and it exemplifies capitalism very well. Greedy, ruthless men who care little or nothing about average people, unless they care about their usefulness. The robber barons may have accomplished great things…but at what cost (in human and environmental life)? They made their fortunes while thousands lived on starvation wages. We must constantly be on guard against such excesses.

    Yes because Marx was always ranting against Jews. Oh wait, no he didn’t; Marx was Jewish.
    Funny how more than half the Socialists I know are of that gifted people.
    Why would an ideology that espouses equalty and sharing instead of greed attempt to vilify an ethnic group? You make no sense. I don’t think you’ve ever read anything from Marx.
    Pete, you have to stop your hate flled trollish empty rhetoric before t gives you high blood pressure or worst.
    Why are you even here every day????

    Have we finally heard the last from this idiot? Even the countries that originally embraced the dogma she is so in love with, have moved on.
