Dumb capitalism

This is the simplest and most apt description of modern day capitalism. Our system of socio-economical organization as a conglomerate of dimwits and smarter dimwits.
What used to be only yesterday a triumphal concept in its struggle with Russo-Sino concept of state dictatorship that enveloped every aspect of society – become a caricature of itself.
Words and descriptions are transformed into empty lies or direct contradictions of itself. Political freedoms become synonymous with freedom of stupidity; educational systems – training campuses for cohorts of morally skewed or morally void youth.
It started in the economical spheres that were slowly removed from any moral obligations and quickly transplanted itself into political, and even more so, philosophical system. The most monumental victory of that system was the creation and fast selling of the ‘free trade’ and ‘open market’ concepts. What it did in turn was an emaciation of political and sovereign rights of society.
Thus the almost permanent state economical recession or ‘near recessions’ and extravagant amassment of private fortunes of few combined with a permanent pauperization of the masses. And very sharp polarization of political activism.
In a very few words that is my simplistic somewhat but honest view of recent upheavals in US economy, European Union struggle with so called ‘sovereign debt’ and even a deeper understanding of riots in England. Next time maybe few more words of that ‘anarchistic’ theory of mine.
