11. With all his talk about enlightened self interest, invisible hands, butchers bakers candlestick...
makers, and the wealth of a nation not residing in the crown jewels but the people the people!! - says he; Adam Smith setup by way of re-packaging monarchical, over-the-horizon oppressions, resource annexations, and aristocracies into the largest snake oil & war profiteering flim-flam game of watch the birdie the world has ever known and to that extent capitalism is an utter failure based upon it's essential claim never trickling down butchers and bakers and candlestick makers when the wealth of a nation still resides in the crown jewels or with people that think they should be kings and queens

A system that says pretty much up front "There's plenty more where you came from" "Don't let the door hit you where the good lord split you" and/or "If you don't like it you can always vote with your feet" is doomed to fail...like a brain eating zombie it just doesn't know it yet
