Gary Hamel: Capitalism is Dead. Long Live Capitalism. - Gary Hamel’s Management 2.0 - WSJ

Capitalism is not the issue or the problem, and cannot be a goal either. It is freedom and what it is done with it. Acquiring power by growing increasingly rich and control, by using that power to make governments and even the world to move in 'your' direction, is not a virtue or a demise of freedom, as the collectivist world wants us to believe, but of men and women misguided by their own thirst for power and control, provided precisely by the weak, or evil politicians who are ready to sell their souls to the best bidder.

The issue is not how much love or hate there is for or towards capital or capitalism, but for power control.



The way to 'control' it is by not giving it to the government or governments to 'protect' us, but by instead, liberating the people giving them back their freedom to choose the products, goods and services that they fit appropriate to their own needs.

The charade that collectivism is protecting the poor against the filthy rich is nothing but the invisible chains that will keep the gap between one and the other widen even more.

The only useful role for any government is protecting life and guaranteeing freedom, never obstructing it. Capitalism can be good or bad, it will always depend in which hands that capital is and the worst place is in the hands of politicians to decide where it should go, and next of 'capitalists' who see only cheating through the government as their only way to success, through power and control.
