There's one thing in capitalism - especially in its neo-liberal flavour that's drugging our minds for several decades - I've never understood:
Why evangelizing the unlimited forces of the markets on the one hand, and then - if things go mad - regulating these markets in order to allot the losses to whole societies? Profits for the few, losses for the masses: is this the glorious future they've told us when we were young? If 'the market' is allowed to prosper freely, then why isn't it allowed to die freely? What kind of freedom is that?
It's almost unbearable reading recent news about stemming the crisis: the moral undertones against the lax morals of the losers of the crisis, the demand to make them bow to the orders of the winners, the insistence on stereotypes: this all is making me sick.
