I agree with some points.
I still think the enviroment is second to thinking.
I also happen to think capitalism is the best form of commerce known.
Ideas get corrupted.
But money and capitalism is very simple, elegant.
It is not a problem.
But modern day capitalism is a corrupted idea, that is a symptom of something greater - stupidity.
Back to the roots I say.
Capitalism from ground up, not enforced from above, with the favoratism of the elite.
There is nothing wrong with competition, that what males us human.
The same thing can be said for cooperation.
At it core, capitalism is just a vechicle for free enterprise.
It should really motivate people to do what they are good at.
Alas it has been corrupted.
What we are living in is state sponsored elite (or agenda, or lobby) based capitalism.
It really is no capitalism at all, but elitism.
Whilst there always will be an elite.
That elite should be based on merit, not on the amount of money avaliable.
This is no somehing we fan shake of easily.
It could be the end.
We find ourselves in this position thanks to an idea.
Alas it is ideas, but specificaly one (dualism) that is at the root or evil.
