Capitalism as I know it, is to run a business, employ workers, under pay the workers for their productive time, over pay yourself as the owner of the business, and at the end of the year, you keep all of the profit for yourself, without sharing any of that profit with your productive workers, although they were very active, in the production of that profit, with their hard work and dedication to the business. Then as the years go by, the owner of this business, is able to establish other branches of the same business across the community, and employ other productive workers, maybe at the same low wages, in order to squeese as much profit as they can, out of the workers, as well as the consumers, with the internal ambition, of becoming a millionaire or a billionaire. And more over, since the cost of living, never goes down in the world in which we are living, the owners are allowed to also raise the cost of their product on the consumers, there by giving him much more profit, which he also refuses to share with the productive workers.
So as the years go by, the owners of these businesses and their families, advance in wealth, and have more than their hearts could wish for, while the productive workers grow older, and have to still fight hard to make ends meet, although they have all these many years of service with these companies. Now because all these kinds of bad behavior is legal under capitalism, does not means hat it is honest and upright, considering that legality, is not really based on honesty.
Back in the 70s in Jamaica, their was a man who's name was Michael Manley, he was the Prime Minister of Jamaica, and he created a system which was called Democratic Socialism, he was trying to get the business owners, to allow the productive workers, to participate in the decision making of their businesses, which he thinks would have increased harmony and production, and as the business become more sucessful, the productive contribution of the workers, would eventrually, qualify them to become share holders, as well as sharing in the profits at the end of each year, but it did not work, the business owners became very bitter against Micheal Manley, and eventually voted him out of Office. When we are born in this world, we are born with nothing in our hands, and nothing on our romps, but as we grow up in this world, it is clearly noticed, that greed and selfishness, allow people to succeed and prosper, and it becomes very difficult, for most of us to escape from that conception, how ever hard we may try. That is what capitalism is really all about, and it is widely spread world wide.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere
