The Helplessness of Capitalism

Anybody else tired of the “what can we do?” hand-wringing about the opioid crisis?  It’s not as if these drugs are smuggled in by Colombian cartels and nothing can be done.  We know exactly who’s making them, but as always, money talks.

This is true for virtually everything in our country, everything from climate change to the gun debate to health care.  Time and time again, regardless of the issue, the big money wins.

This is not a system to brag about.  This so-called “free market” system is failing the vast majority of Americans on every front.

We live in an “Us vs. Them” system, and it’s about time that everyone realized that.  It’s “Us vs. The Rich.”  That’s it.  That’s the fundamental definition of the battle at hand.
