2. Well, no we could not. Never seen a country without capitalism doing well.

Itís the only system that generates wealth. That I know of. Feel free to name one and prove me wrong.

But. And it a big but. Left unchecked it becomes as oppressive as any other system. Which is where we are now.

Which is why I look to Western Europe. They are decidedly not socialist. Private industry is the norm.

What we need is FDR style social Democracy where capitalism is tightly regulated to make sure those with no capital reap the benefits of the system.
