“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free” — Goethe
Most of us (especially us in the U.S.) believe we are free, and yet we are quite the opposite of free, and hopelessly enslaved to a world of make-believe.
We were made to believe capitalism is a system of freedom. Our implementation of capitalism violates the most rudimentary principles of freedom. For our implementation of freedom does not take into account that freedom can only exist when it is paired with the paradoxical rules of collective freedom (different in every sovereign nation) and in doing so yields the much-needed protection and maximum stimulation of individual freedom.
Capitalisms will be reinvented once we subjugate it to freedom as a relativity theory (to each his own), in which the equilibrium between collective freedom and individual freedom will support the values every sovereign nation, by the wishes of its electorate, aspires to.
