Capitalism's Self-inflicted Apocalypse

Recommended Posts

Guest sillybear2

Central banking is a central plank of socialism, fixing the price of money, like fixing the price of anything is a recipe for disaster. I'd love to blame capitalism, but it hasn't existed in this country for a long time.

Looks like Japan is veering towards communism too:

Structurally there's very little difference in the case of Japan, vast corporations and bureaucracies already form the commanding heights, and a single party has held power almost continuously since WW2.

The kyosanto are pretty far from communism. Only the ex-backpacker ex-pat Americans who write for these kind of papers would describe them as such. Their main fame comes from enthusiastic support for Article 9 of the Constitution - prohibiting attacking other countries (itself a highly un-communist attitude, since the Constitution was ventriloquised by the occupying US, who wanted Japan as an unarmed free market Pacific pawn).

Thanks for that insight.
