We have a representative government with a market economy. Capitalism is a outcrop of market economies.
However - - - You can not deny those who are ambitious and want a better life. There must be different layers people can attain. You can't
stop someone who is willing to work hard to attain the life they want.
IMO, corporations, and those obsessed with wealth do just that, try to deny people from having a better life, ambitious hard working people, who get
screwed by the those willing to do anything to obtain great wealth.
IMO it doesn't take so much ambition to succeed,as it takes the willingness to take advantage of others when the situation presents itself. The way
to accumulate wealth is to go along with the system, and take advantage when the opportunity presents itself. Sure it takes ambition, but not as much
ambition as working to make this a better world.
That is the biggest problem over the last thirty years, under the con of the free market, people have gotten away with lying, cheating, and stealing
for a living.
And they have deprived honest hard working people of the wealth they should have coming to them.
