John Mackey and Capitalist Paradise

According to John Mackey in this clip, we are already in Paradise, the capitalist one. Capitalism is THE solution and it has already brought happiness and prosperity to billions.

With such a successful ideology, who needs God?

By the way, look HERE and you will see that this part of a major propaganda campaign. Will they find enough naive people to believe them?

Strangely, I have not heard one word about the human propensity to greed and the need to restrict the abuse of freedom. This kind of overoptimistic anthropology seems to have no appreciation for the reality of the fall and its destructive effects of humanity.

Are we really in Heaven? Let us ask the billions of poor in this world. Are we, and they, deluded, or is Mackey and his gang living in a dream world, with no connection with real reality.

One thought on “John Mackey and Capitalist Paradise”

  1. If Dollar (or more than you need in everything) is A God then capitalism is its religion.
    In this respect talking about the morality of capitalism makes perfect sense.
