Right, we don't even have a capitalist system atm; it's a mixed economy. I am all for the free market and capitalism, as long as we regulate monopolies and corruption and the like, I think it's the best we've got. Getting rid of the FED would go a long way.

A socialism movement seems to be the legacy of unbridled capitalism. When 1% of the world holds 50% or more of the world's wealth and student debt is piling up, with no end in sight...coupled with the polluting of the world and the destruction of natural resources...well, what do you expect? Do you expect them to embrace the status quo?
