If it was mother nature, the Earth wouldn't be in the fucked up state it's in right now. But of course, it's human nature. Get the fuck outta here lol.

And if and when it is fucked-up enough mother-nature will adjust for it...Or just do with us what she pleases....Wiped out the dinosaurs, and they were behaving......But that is an argument for another post

See this is why I can not take left-wing nitwits like you seriously......Where did I say it was the ONLY interference by the government??....Where did I say I wanted to remove the EPA??....Where did I say deregulating the Corporations will help the economy??.....When you can not debate an idea based on your extremist agenda, you resort to hyperbole??.. That is conceding defeat....

Social Darwinism is the natural outcome of unrestrained capitalism. But once the Rockefellers of this world have eliminated all of their competition, and reduced their fellow man to abject slave-labor, who is going to have any disposable income to buy their overpriced low-quality crap? Why do you think America, the alleged bastion of free-enterprise, experiences a continuing 250-year cycle of boom and bust? Laissez-faire capitalism, if it to work at all, can only work in a system where everyone is equal to begin with, but that is an oxymoron because the capitalist system will never allow that to happen. That's the irony. Capitalism could only survive in a system where corporate accumulation of capital is forbidden and wealth is continually redistributed to the working class--i.e. a revolutionary socialist state.

False...If you follow the stories of the Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, Fords and their ilk...What happens is that after the original entrepreneurs start the enterprise and achieve fantastic control of their new markets, the seceding generations manage to lose the direction and focus of the original endeavor.....So your assumption that their enterprises would continue to grow uncontrolled is not valid.......What stopped Ford from being the only car manufacturer??....Competition.....

As for the rest....there is a theory in economics that if you took all the wealth and redistributed it equally amoungst every man. woman and child in the society, within a generation or two it would migrate right back to where it started from ,.,...
