Capitalistic hierarchical Establishment has been deft in their sleight of hand of separating the topic of economics upon which capitalism is founded, away from so-labeled culture-wars topics in which portions of the public specified by hierarchy must act contrary to their own economic interests that in this system, is the basis for survival. This implies the system is more fascist than organized crime. Organized crime seems impervious to the behavior of its human resources (people), while fascism can institutionalize levels of behavior. This brings up dictatorship as the end result of fascism. This also implies that portions of the public must act contrary to their own interests, or break the law. One could almost recognize indenturing in this system.
A problem on the topic of fascism is that, until authoritarian exploitation of human resources (people) or natural resources (environment) becomes noticeable, the money is nice. A governance based on :”the economy” can be a euphemism for dictatorship. It is easy to overlook corruption when money is being generated, and this includes our nation of shareholders. Add to this the highly questionable policy of Citizens United by which lawmakers are purchased by big-money interests, and supposedly monitoring sources such as the Federal Reserve, which is supposed to maintain balance in “the economy”, has over a decade kept too low, interests. Keeping interest rates abnormally low has forced family savings accounts into the stock market that can be considered speculative. Low interest rates may also promote inflation.
