    Because years of moral relativism take their toll?

    Here’s a hint on how to spot one subtle difference. Move to China and try to post about Mr Xi similar to the way you post about Mr Trump.
    Im not sure what pure free market capitalism has to do with free speech. Unless you are talking buying politicians votes with “lobbyist” money.

    Capitalism is not based on free speech, our Constitution supposedly guarantees free speech, not the market.

    Die-hard Capitalists will say the free market provided the rain at the end of a long drought.

    There is an assumption by some that if a person talks about the demise of capitalism, there must be an insinuation that a revolution is imminent. The current conditions do appear to many that our economy is pregnant and expecting. But it seems unlikely that revolution in the sense of a violent proletariat uprising is even feasible. So what is the future for our capitalism? Status quo....where the income of the wealthiest doubles and triples while the income of the lowest 50% remains stagnant? Is that an acceptable outcome for our great capitalist system? Or is it more likely that capitalism will be poured into ice or mixed with ginger ale instead of being consumed straight up?

    What Does Late Capitalism really mean?
