I find it hilarious that this fundamental point about capitalism is still debated today. Well actually I don't...an unbiased opinion can fundamentally distinguish the interests of working and upper class. However, in order for capitalism to work, the machine has to go on unfettered. Therefore it is the job of those beneficiaries of a capitalist society to show why the system is the best and most fit for all, and to do their damned best to refute any evidence that capitalism in essence is based on taking advantage of another. What I love about the system is this: I have two friends who I went to college with; one got a degree in zoology and one a masters in psychology with a bachelors in adolescent education. One is now working at a zoo picking up elephant turds and the other is just starting in social work, helping less fortunate PEOPLE. Guess who makes 34,000 and who makes 28,500 a year?
