I believe that greed and corruption and nepotism are the cause of the worlds economic and social

problems of today. Greed has to be the worse contributor to our social ills. I can remember when job security was not an evil plot of the left but a reasonable plan for a stable and prosperous society. Sure there was corruption and nepotism but those in power seemed to understand that sharing prosperity and ensuring security and taking reasonable care of the poor kept us a reasonably functioning nation. What happened? Now it seems as though all the powers care about is having and taking more and more from others and making sure that no one else gets anything. We never have been a perfect nation but the hate, fear, and selfishness today is mind boggling.

3. During the cold war, the 1% was afraid of communism, so they

 

were willing to allow for a large middle class and general prosperity to show that capitalism was a better system. Now, they no longer have to make that argument.
