    It can NOT be breed out of people in general. A few people will be able to rid themselves of that influence. But that is saintly behavior and is a totally different paradigm.

    No. So it is a question of what legal system optimizes society's aims.

    LOL !!

    WHAT !! Capitalism has pulled more people out of abject poverty than any other economic system and has increased the Standard of living for Billions of people around the World.

    Of-course, what we've seen over the last 6 years economically is more Government intervention via Central Bank and Fiscal stimulus and this purely ideological approach that has had disastrous results all over the World.

    Progressive's are beholden to the notion that a Government can spend, devalue and borrow its way into economic prosperity without realizing that this massive intervention has corrupted the underlying principles that have pulled so many out of poverty.

    But after 6 years, 4 Trillion added to the FEDs books and Trillions added to the Debt the economy is still on life support.

    " Return to Power By Any Means Necessary "

But you are right, greed will be there, no matter what you do. Again, the question is what can be done to control it such that it does not reach a destructive level.
    Perhaps continue having laws? Outside of some radicals no one really wants unfettered capitalism anywhere. Some will ignorantly (and hypocritically) tote the free market chain but they dont want anarchy, lord of the flies, Somalia, black market type of Capitalism. Not once in American history has unfettered capitalism existed as law. And each time that individuals and groups exploited laws we as a nation have responded. To get you fair dues for work has always been the unifying goal of Americans. In fact our nation based on such views.

    Capitalism is not the problem it is in the human nature of people to be self serving, and that cannot be removed from the human being.

    Sorry, but not necessarily. I don't think you know what "greed" means. You have been indoctrinated to believe this.

    greed
    ɡrēd/
    noun
    intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food.
    synonyms: avarice, cupidity, acquisitiveness, covetousness, rapacity.

    Government intervention into the private sector by way of Stimulus both Fiscal and monetary doesn't create substantial economic qrowth.

    Since 2008 GDP growth on average is about 2 percent and that's after 8 Trillion in new debt and 4 Trillion in new liquidity that's sitting idle on the Books of the FED.

    So ideologues like you have 2 choices. Accept that you have been hoodwinked into joining some cult like ideology or ATTEMPT to divert attention away from the failures of your ideology by blaming "Capitalism ".

    Since Progressives don't understand the value of humility they'll ride their desperate assertions into the ground and take everyone else with them.

    For example, the US Treasury, the US FED, the IMF and Central Banks all over the world applauded when Japan decided that they were going to double down on the policies that led to their insurmountable debt to GDP ratio.

    To this day, as Japan allocates nearly 40 percent of their total revenues to debt service while their Central Bank is the ONLY one buying ( monetizing ) their debt, the US FED and idiots like Paul Krugman are still cheering them on.

    So don't blame " Capitalism ".

    Greed is one of those things that people have that they may not recognize.

    I guess you really have an axe to grind.
