Capitalism isn’t just bumping elbows with democracy at the moment, it’s at war. Because it thinks that other system—the one where things like safety, pollution, and rights are all off the table—sounds like a pretty good deal. This isn’t just a consequence of the ability of corporations to generate more revenue through the old, old system of privatizing profit and socializing losses. It’s also massively affected by the unprecedented concentration of wealth. That consolidation makes it more and more tempting for the few to simply cross out the rights of the many … for dollars.
