Used to be - God Was the Only Prophet Now Profit is the Only God.








Capitalism has inserted itself into every nook & cranny on this earth. No land is spared. No peoples can escape.


One little thingy about capitalism, kind-of philosophical,...it's just that THERE IS NO MORALITY in a capitalistic system - OTHER THAN - MAKING PROFIT is GOD. Making profit is the ultimate good.

Profit is THE ONLY MEASURE.


Pay a living wage? - FUCK THAT
Protect the environment? - FUCK THAT
Pay your fair share back to the system that allowed you to flourish? - FUCK THAT

Humanistic standards of morality do not exist in a naked capitalistic system.



We, as humanity, have moved closer to hell. And as I have already stated...there is no escape.

In your first sentence, you said, "Used to be - God Was the Only Prophet." Since you don't even understand that God is not a prophet, why should one read any further?

You keep forgetting that the US isn't the planet earth, although its greedy mind-set is poisoning everything; so that's only a matter of time.

From the fountain of all knowledge, Wikipedia:

In religion, a prophet is an individual who has claimed to have been contacted by the supernatural or the divine, and to speak for them, serving as an intermediary with humanity, delivering this newfound knowledge from the supernatural entity to other people.


...so, there's that.

As far as I know, I'm the only prophet on Earth with the relevant mystical credentials to prove it.

Don't cheat yourself of the rich philosophical focus of this thread simply for the simple misunderstanding of an associated term.


Move-on and attempt to festoon yourself to the concepts herein that you are still able to grasp.




I Thank all of you for responding and you're welcome.

There is no rich philosophical focus, just your prejudice.

Across the board Capitalism has raised the living standard of the world and its poor more than any other system tried, like Democracy it's the best of a bad lot.

Capitalism is a rich mixture of many economic systems.


Moving towards a naked or raw capitalism is where the really brutal stuff occurs...


Hope that helps you.

Those under Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot would have disagreed with you.
