It is true, to the extent that Capitalism is, by nature, exploitive. It cannot see a resource un-plundered and the amount wasted is irrelevant to the primary motivation which is the most cash in the shortest period. Ergo, clear cut logging, etc.

But there is another reason that Unregulated Capitalism has seen it's day. That is that it only works well in an ABUNDANCE of resources. And we are no longer in that situation. Efficiency and sustainability are the coming watchwords.

There will still be a 'ruling elite' of some kind and they will still hog massive resources to themselves, but they will have to become smarter about managing with less in their business models.

Money will not be the leverage it once was.

A much bigger irreconcilable difference is between socialism and a working economy.

I'd like to make some sense of this statement, but I'm pretty sure you don't know or understand either one.

I quite understand how the hydrocephalic ex vacuo would reach that conclusion. Of course,... I disagree.

The current Communist administration and the Communist led Democrat Party will offer these disgusting rationalizations for continuing their policies of disadvantaging 1.6 Billion people on Earth. Rather than give them affordable energy allowing them miniscule upward mobility toward the living standards of the rest of the planet, Democrats continue to deprive them of energy on any meaningful level. Democrats would have 1.6 Billion people on Earth continuing to live in mud huts without electricity, have short life spans and continue to practice the slavery and life deprivation US Democrats have imposed since the Communist takeover of the Party after JFK.

Democrats perform their eugenics policies internationally, as well as in the Black communities here in America. The internationalist, or collectivist mentality will push fear mongering about economies and man made global warming... all falsehoods designed to kill off Billions of people in the coldhearted ways of any Communist in the past murdering hundreds of millions for power and control.

They're sick and evil and commonly quite perverse.
