Super-Capitalist On US Version Of Capitalism: "People Will Not Be Dumb Forever"
The Short Version: Just as the middle men are choking our health care system to death by taking the profits, corporate managers are doing the same to American capitalism as a whole. (Come to think of it, what ails the American health-care industry -- and it's a sign of just how sick we are as a society that this is an "industry" and no longer a profession, much less a calling -- is what ails America as a whole.) So where do you think this was published? The Nation? The Daily Worker? Mother Jones? Nope. Try Smart Money magazine, not exactly a bastion of collectivist thought. If the people who've helped set up the system we have are now saying it's broken, you'd better believe it's broken.
