False. Capitalism leaves everyone behind, 100% of people, even those who get wealthy from it, because it makes them, too, live in a sick society, alienated, fearful, vapid.

I particularly like this video, "The Revolution is Love," and how Charles Eisenstein explains the world we want to create.

It's important to note that how an economic system is set up largely creates the world in which we live. When studying history you quickly find that most of history is driven by economics. How man structures his society is mainly a function of economic necessities and how trade, property, money etc. are treated. So, I like this video and the vision he outlines:

Jefferson suggested an agrarian type of economy. Something like that could work, if it were based on small farms. http://truth-out.org/news/item/16473-industrialized-agriculture-and-civilization

Symbolic, yes. The suggestion was an economy based on production rather than capital.

Yes - production for use not for profit!

The Tea Party is also against big companies and corrupt politicians oppressing America.American Spring is to remove all these traditional Rinos and democrats.They represent Bankers like the Republican Koch brothers and Democrats like George Soros.Its time for politicians to represent the citizens who elect them.We have no business in Ukraine .Why are we still in the middle east when Saddam and Bin laden are dead?

When is American Spring, I had heard of it but thought the day had came and went already. You might post more info on it also, I am not sure I heard correctly, seemed it was a far right thing from what I heard.

Not much of a spring. I would say lack of spring might by climate change related but this might be the wrong audience.

Thanks for the link, it seems that my initial appraisal of the event was dead on. I just wish that folks like that could be reached. They can't seem to see past the D/R thing though. I think it would be safe to say that most people realize that Washington is no longer listening to them, I wish they could see the root cause of the problem instead of blaming the puppet instead of the master.

The Constitution is for American Freedom.It does not say a felony stays with you the rest of your life.These corporations make all their money from us.Yet they ship labor overseas to maximize profits.And the politicians do not raise tariffs on these products brought into America because these companies donate to campaign funds.

Capitolism is fine as long as it does not bribe government.

Come to D.C. and support Operation American Spring!

Mischief springs from the power which the moneyed interest derives from a paper currency which they are able to control, from the multitude of corporations with exclusive privileges... which are employed altogether for their benefit.Unless you become more watchful in your states and check the spirit of monopoly and thirst for exclusive privileges you will in the end find that... the control over your dearest interests has passed into the hands of these corporations.
