karl marx correctly explained that in any capitalistic society, the working cl@ss eventually always revolt against the bourgeois (wealthy) due to the nature of the rich exploiting the lower in every way possible. even if you disagree with marxist principles, this is logically true. capitalism, due to human nature, is only a temporary system because of this very natural and inevitable progression. We are currently experiencing the now tail end of it in the us. the poor and middle are exploited and have no help as evidenced by being left in the dust for something completely out of their control. ask any european, australian, or first world asian - they will all conclude unanimously that america is a RUTHLESS place to live if you are not wealthy.
so the iteration that we know of marxism is considered not a good substitute because of human nature. this, i agree. we are too greedy as individuals to allow society to own of the means of production. but why americans so violently against a hybrid system, used successfully across the world in the first world? why do the middle defend the millionaires and billionaires who gives zero fucks about them? it is laughable when you read about billionaires (buffett) who claim that the divide should not exist, yet they themselves would never dare part most of their money. is it the very CHANCE at living life as an elite that keeps the american working defending them, meanwhile they are in the trenches dreaming they will obtain a ladder to get out? do we not realize we are about to become a real life grapes of wrath?
THIS is why something NEEDS to change
