Capitalism as first defined is NOT the 'plutocracy' that we have today. It was defined at a time when philosophy was interested in the 'common man' which was the foundation of government (the will of the governed).
The idea was similar to and allied with Communism where the 'state' would wither away and the individual would be supreme. But Communism predicted a 'altruistic' community approach, where everyone did what they could do best, and received what they needed without greed or domination. It never had a chance.
And capitalism was similar in that it focussed on individual merit, but postulated a 'collection' of the savings of the individual to produce 'capital pools' to finance business expansion and change. The rewards were to come back to the individual. It never had a chance.
Both systems have failed miserably due to greed and power hungry 'self interest' of a few. Basically, the 'aristocracy of wealth' is no different than the past 'aristocracy of title'. It has the same inbreeding, entitled but dim witted progeny and greed for greeds sake. And ego's that consider themselves 'above' the working or peon classes.
There should be no surprise that it continues to promote the evils that were familiar to the dark ages and the old kingdoms. It is an 'aristocracy', NOT a 'capitalist' system.
You can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig.
