“The forces of anti-capitalism have long latched onto whatever best suits them for pushing their agenda. Whatever the latest injustice may be — from a polluted environment to poverty to racism — the solution is always the end of capitalism.
The problem with all this, of course, is that capitalism is certainly not the dominant ideology of the status quo. If it were, Paul Krugman would not be a media darling, and the US would not be running trillion dollar deficits each year, funded with government-printed money. Moreover, capitalism has long been the enemy of race-based economic caste systems. It’s no coincidence, of course, that the slave drivers of old vehemently slandered capitalism at every opportunity.”
