You know what? I'm dont' want to be a slave to evolution, but I don't
see anybody rewriting human DNA yet, so your statement is a mite

However, you may recall that I have been unemployed for almost 10 months
now, yet I seem to be one of the most pro-capitalist voices here. If
capitalism were only about self interest, I should rationally be
plotting a socialist revolution right now, if I were serving my self

As an unemployed person, the only thing that motivates me to get out of
bed in the day is the hope of finding a job that will lead to a highly
lucrative career. If only average wage, dead end, seniority restricted,
union rule dictated jobs were available to me, THAT is when I'd start
plotting a revolution, if I had any motivation to get out of bed.

Take away my hopes of captialist success, and you might as well just
shoot me.

THIS is why capitalism works, and why nobody "needs" to prove that they
have a "need" for enormous wealth. The fact that they have it is its own
proof that the economy needs people as savvy as them to handle the
responsibility of all that capital. Government certainly can't manage
capital worth spit.
