Pure capitalism, socialism, communism, and all free market schemes in general are all unrealistic ideals that never succeed. Market economics are not so ideal.
A properly functioning market is no more natural than civilization.

I have finally come to the conclusion, after ten years in developing countries, that the corporations do MORE for the development of third world countries. Yes, more to modernize and develop than any of the aid agencies that have been here for what seems like forever.

I was an idealist like you, now I am a realist. Yes, some of the conditions are bad for workers, but you have to understand that their life before the factory was much worse. People want work, not handouts.

True, but I feel that a more natural way of life could be far more satisfying if we were to use our intelligence capacity to understand that there is more to be had with friends than without friends. That is, should we be absolutely free and understand that we need each other in order to succeed and survive then there would be the understanding that there is no logic behind murder and rape. I believe that things such as murder and rape are products of the disbelief in equality. When one feels jealous or outcast they may become angered or begin to lose confidence in themselves, it is in this anger that they murder and in this lack of confidence that they rape. Merely my opinion of course.
In a circular society we would see little need for trade or things such as money. People could simply share with each other. For instance, a farmer might grow plenty of food and with modern technology he could easily grow far more than he and his family require. Anything extra could just go to whomever needs it. You might say that people are too greedy and would simply wipe out all of the farmer's food. If said people knew what was in their own best interests they'd know that if they did such a thing the farmer would soon starve and as a result they too would soon starve. They would know that if they left enough food for the farmer that he would continue to grow more and they too would continue to receive more. So too would they know that if they left enough food not only for the farmer, but also for others such as computer programmers then the programmers would have the time and life they need to make video games to entertain, or even programs that could help the farmer do his job better so there's even more food to go around. Today we don't teach things like this in school, in fact all school seems to teach is how to pretend like you're better or smarter than someone else. School does not teach how to share, only how to hoard. How to make money to obtain things for yourself and keep them locked up gathering dust so no other can use them.

The Synagogue of Satan
One group and one group alone is responsible for virtually all wars and bloodshed on the face of this planet. This evil cabal is few in numbers but, like a deadly octopus, its tentacles reach out to grip and strangle untold multitudes of innocent victims. The initiates of every secret society and internationalist organization, from the Council on Foreign Relations and the Jesuits to the Bilderbergers and the Order of Skull & Bones, obey the dictates of this sinister group and tremble when standing before its leaders.
The cabalist group I refer to is the Synagogue of Satan, an ancient, yet modern, elite so politically powerful and so fabulously wealthy that even past history has been twisted, reshaped, and revised to meet its preferred version of humanity's gloomy, totalitarian future.
Religious in nature, the Synagogue of Satan is, at its essence, a grotesque, satanic cult. It's high council is composed of High Priests of Lucifer; these are men who literally worship death while practicing sexual magick and occult rituals of the blackest nature. LINK
"The illuminati started long before 1776, It has it's roots in the mystery religions which the knights templar perpetuated. In Nimrod's time, Semiramus brought back the mystery religions which were from before the time of Noah. The Illuminati was just a different name by which these same entities exsisted. They can change their name a thousand times, but the same entities run it."
Note the illuminati in Jesus' day.
"The Old Testament is simply the history of how Satan became prince of the world, and caused our first parents to defect from God. It relates how the synagogue of Satan was established on this earth, it tells how it has worked since to prevent God’s Plan for the rule of the universe being established on this earth. Christ came to earth when the conspiracy reached the stage that, to use his own words, Satan controlled all those in high places.
He exposed the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2:9; 3:9) he denounced those who belonged to it as sons of the devil (Lucifer), whom he castigated as the father of lies (John 8:44) and the prince of deceit (2 Cor. 11:14). He was specific in his statement that those who comprised the synagogue of Satan were those who called themselves Jews, but were not, and did lie (Rev. 2:9; 3:9). He identified the Money-Changers (Bankers) the Scribes, and the Pharisees as the Illuminati of his day.
