Absolutely. The current economic 'crisis' merely serves as a reshuffle to ensure that the top remains static and the myth of social mobility is maintained. The main premise of the system though, as you state is the belief that it is okay to profit at the expense of others. Greed. This not only encourages corruption and criminality, but also conflict and resentment. As long as we are fighting amongst ourselves, we are not looking up at 'them' or for the source of the problem.
