A minor correctionposted by The Vidiot @ 9:20 AM Permalink to my Mexico post below. In it, I wrote:
Any system that allows an old man to rot in the streets like that or creates an environment where a young woman hooks to eat, or where young children walk around barefoot, selling crap nobody needs, or an entire family sitting on the street, the father playing an accordion while his wife and children sit next to him begging for money, any system that allows any of this to happen is evil.Mr. Vidiot wishes me to correct and clarify. The word "allows" is incorrect. It should be "Any system that produces old men that rot in the streets..." and "any system that produces any of this behavior is evil."
See, capitalism produces poverty. It produces as much poverty as it does wealth. Using the word "allows" was done out of habit.
Sorry for the confusion.
