Response to Starry Messenger (Original post)

5. As long as ordinary people have to work to get money in order to lay claims to goods and services

and as long as we allow the "financial services industry" to create money for nothing in order to lay claims to goods and services, there will be hard-working poor people who will never have any security in their life and who will live shortened lives, and then there will be game-players on the "right side" who waste enough for ten lifetimes.

Corporations must be killed, along with all their financial clap-trap, and production, not "profits" made the goal of the economy.

Nothing new or radical here. Adam Smith said the same in 1776.
