Greed and corruption

As a socialist (libertarian socialist, if possible) I have to admit that socialists are corrupt bastards, especially the socialists of the political variety from which I exclude myself, of course.

To elaborate: all people are greedy bastards. Socialists just seem to be more corrupt. At least capitalists have a pretense of integrity.

Maybe its just that capitalism if more effective at fingering the corruption: "We're all greedy. Greedy is good. We just have to all play by the rules of greed". Rather than socialism: "We're all wonderful. Trust us we we want what's best for us all. Now give me your money."



People are bastards

Ok, so we know that. Enough said, but what particular kind of bastards are people today, exactly?

Look at the media - all we clearly want to see and hear is gore, disaster and depravation. Why else do we consume it? Rape, murder, corruption, doom and gloom. Our mental breakfast, really to start the day now thank you.
