Capitalism is sort of like the weather--it can be nice, sunny and bright, but then turn ugly, causing severe discomfort and disaster. The war against capitalism has always been around, long before Karl Marx. Even Jesus said a few nasty things about the rich. What most people want is neither riches nor work, but rather, security and leisure. That's why socialism and welfare states are so popular with the masses--and why Obama won the election over a much better candidate than himself.
