Update:  30 Oct 08.  The latest comment I heard today was that Capitalism is selfish.  That’s an interesting point of view.  I suppose it’s selfish because it doesn’t distribute evenly or perhaps a better way to examine would be that it favors sellers or buyers.   Is it a flaw in the human psyche that requires a competitive spirit or a yearning to improve, to grow and press upward?  I’m only asking the questions here.  I’d love to hear the responses.

Update:  31 Oct 08.  The message is getting out.  Redistribution means everyone is punished for sucess.  It’s sinking in what this means and people don’t like it.  Socialism isn’t patriotic.
