Le Cauchemar de Darwin
Capitalism without democracy is just gangsterism.
See recent history in China or Russia for plenty of examples.
Lately, under BushCo, the US has been stripping away its democracy, leaving just the capitalism. As Bishop Spong says: “Capitalism courts revolution when it allows the wealthy to get too wealthy and the poor to get too poor.” In international policy, this leads naturally to the military industrial complex. And it is the main problem with globalization. This is also the reason to have domestic spying. Political opponents are in fact, economic rivals.
Without the rule of law under democratic oversight, capitalist competition and performance in the commercial marketplace quickly morph into the competition and behavior of gangsters.
