Thank you, merci, gracias.
I present here an excerpt from “The Republic” by Plato as it raises a point which seems to me extremely important in connection with the system or capitalism. And it is also a reflection of my thoughts. That is to say, the consequences of wear on man and society. If it helps, I have to share it. Perhaps this will awaken in others indignation necessary to rebel.
I have no knowledge in economics, despite this large ancestral philosophers have exposed the problem there are already 2500 years. Simply by logic and careful reflection.
Google translations will follow.
“This is democracy, it seems, we must now consider – how it is formed and what it is – to know the character of man who responds, and to bring him to trial. […]
The leaders in this regime, before their authority as major property they own, will refuse, I guess to make a law to repress the licentiousness of young people and prevent them from dissipating and losing their heritage, because they plan to buy or to appropriate it by wear, to become even richer and more considered. […]
Or is not it already clear that in a State citizens can honor the richness and at the same time acquire the proper temperance, but they are forced to neglect or one or the other. […]
Thus, in oligarchies, the leaders, by their negligence and the facilities they provide to libertinism, sometimes reduced to the paucity of well-born men. […]
And that, I think, established in the cities of the people provided with prods and well armed, each burdened with debts, other infamy, others of both: full of hate for those who have acquired their property, they are plotting against them and other citizens, and strongly desire a revolution. […]
However usurers will head down, without seeming to see their victims; they hurt anyone their money gives them taken from other citizens and, while multiplying the interests of their capital, they swarm into the city race of the “Hornet” and the beggar. […]
And the loss when ignited, they do not want to turn it off or as we said, by preventing individuals to dispose of their property as they please, or this another way: by making a law that removes such abuses.
A law that would come after the one against the sinks and that would require citizens to be honest; because if the legislature ordered that voluntary transactions does general risks of the lender, it would be enriched with less impudence in the city, and less of these evils arise there. […]
well ! In my view, democracy appears when the poor, who won the victory over the rich, killed some and banish others, and also share with those left government and public offices; and often these charges are drawn. ”
Socrates and Plato sacred !!!
And to conclude :
Capitalism does not pay the huge force that results from the union and harmony of workers, convergence and simultaneity of their efforts16. P-J Proudhon
Wear The interest rate is the price of time, the reward of waiting.
