From the beginning of the occupation, I have listened to people's different economic theories. I have discussed the issues of capitalism, socialism and communism too many times to count, and while I have learned some valuable lessons, I still feel there are points that are overlooked far too often.
The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Our financial system is hanging loosely on the edge of collapse and millions of Americans are loosing their jobs and their homes. And who is to blame for all of this? For a lot of folks, the answer to that question is capitalism. For that reason, today, many of us believe that the sad state of our economic and social system is prove that capitalism doesn't and will not work as a viable economic system.
