Unfortunately you are speaking about a very large portion of the American Public.
A VERY large portion.
So, to answer your question once again, I would say that people are, in fact, too stupid to handle capitalism in its current state... but I would also
say that they are that way because the Government has capitalized on the people's natural "faults" in this respect.
Those being that people most generally want to make a good living and enjoy their creature comforts. (that isn't really a fault mind you, it is
indicative of what is actually wrong with capitalism)
That being that people simply have to keep themselves too well informed.
It, like all other systems, is doomed to fail.
And we are seeing it.
I mean, there isn't anything written in the bible or anywhere else most consider holy that says that people need to read stock reports every single
day all day lest they fall to destitude.
People are better than this cutthroat mentality.
Hopefully one day we can realize it.
