Excellent. You can tell what a man stands for by the stature of his enemies.

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.






The recent marriage of naked capitalism with a pure communism in China will continue to yield many interesting & terrifying results.

The capitalist system has brought many advantages ....to the few. Marx believed the capitalist system would end up eating itself and I see the current dealings with Communist China as part of the process.

The Chinese do not have to wage war they just need to buy the key parts of the other nations economies. In the UK they are the biggest owner of our surveillance systems, they hold major shares in our water infrastructure and will soon design, build and run our new nuclear power station. The capitalists see this inward investment as evidence the Chinese are becoming capitalists. However, who still controls the banks? Who "allows" their business people to invest and how much government money/control is involved in those investments. The US hosts thousands of Chinese students learning the technology and the business systems to go back home and use against their teachers.

Already we have had the Chinese threaten the UK Government with a withdrawal of investment in many areas of our country if we did not agree to them building the nuclear power station. Our Capitalist favouring Government buckled and the Chinese will soon be in control of a nuclear weapon on our own shores. Who needs a nuclear submarine firing missiles?

The philosophy of the Chinese is to beat capitalism at its own game. Like a Judo throw, where you use the weight and momentum of your opponent against them.

You play with the dragon and you get burnt. So yes, people did believe in the prophets now they only believe in profit and God turns his back.
