No, I think men are as they are because they are ignorant of the real meaning of "do unto others, as you would have them do unto you."
As a child I always feared and hated people being mean or hating each other or doing each other harm. I never liked something like wrestling (when I
thought they were really hurting each other) when I was very little. It seemed very, VERY unnatural to me. (that I actually thought and realized that
as a child!)
Even now, sometimes when I hear people raise their voice a little I jump a little.
As with capitalism, the more succesful you are, the more likely you are to hurt someone else, financially, emotionally or in wellness. That, in my
opinion has always seemed highly illogical and against the true nature of man & woman.
But capitalism is logical because of the beliefs we have been brought up with in this society (lack, life is hard, you got to work hard, people are
mean, there's not enough, you are your body and nothing else etc...)
Something like a second nature, because these beliefs are so much ingrained into us the become habit.
So, in my opinion: "Capitalism is simply the efficient institutionalisation of secondary human nature and NOT of true human nature"
