Government Systems

Capitalism
Simply put this is a dog-eat-dog, survival-of-the-fittest, every-man-for-himself, free-for-all feeding frenzy. So it's no wonder it always takes root in so-called democratic societies where freedom and democracy is more of a Wild West type mob rule. The main problem with capitalism is that it feeds off the baser instincts of human greed. The insatiable appetite for material wealth is a vice that brings out the worst in people. And it's so popular because people are full of the worst things to be brought out of them. Proponents claim that such unbridled commercial competition is good - until they lose their shirt in the stock market.
