One Kleptocracy, Under Greed...

In response to a Facebook post which pointed out that much of what we feared would befall us if Communism won the Cold War has come true under capitalism, I responded:

Sort of.  I have no respect for unrestricted free enterprise, but the United States does not currently follow this capitalist ideal.  We are becoming less a democracy and more a kleptocracy in which the government serves the ultra wealthy in amassing ever greater amounts of our national wealth through corrupt politics, tax breaks, and immunity from legal restrictions or consequences.

Of course, it could be argued that this is the inevitable result of under regulated capitalism.
