A Quote by Ron Paul on capitalism, interventionist-planned economy, corporatism, inflationism, and interventionism

To condemn free-market capitalism because of anything going on today makes no sense. There is no evidence that capitalism exists today. We are deeply involved in an interventionist-planned economy that allows major benefits to accrue to the politically connected of both political spectrums. One may condemn the fraud and the current system, but it must be called by its proper names – Keynesian inflationism, interventionism, and corporatism.

Ron Paul

A Quote by E.F. Schumacher on corporatism, being a cog, corporate life, corporate, mass production, mass marketing, human herd behavior, capitalisms shadow, factory, factories, money, making money, and love of money

That soul-destroying, meaningless, mechanical, moronic work is an insult to human nature which must necessarily and inevitably produce either escapism or aggression, and that no amount of 'bread and circuses' can compensate for the damage done--these are facts which are neither denied nor acknowledged but are met with an unbreakable conspiracy of silence--because to deny them would be too obviously absurd and to acknowledge them would condemn the central preoccupation of modern society as a crime against humanity.

E.F. Schumacher (1911 - 1977)
