We’ve been told that unregulated competition leads to greater wealth for the masses. We’ve been told that higher wages just makes people unemployable. We’ve been told that free markets ensure that everyone is paid exactly what he is worth. None of this is true. They are just myths that serve the mighty, and prevent the rules that could create a more equitable system. The whole “science” of economics is a rationalization for rules that give the rich an unfair advantage over everyone else, with no basis in objective reality.
The worst of the capitalists have hijacked our democracy and captured the agencies that are supposed to regulate their activity. We the people can put democracy back on top of capitalism, where it belongs.
