Capitalism was GREAT to skyrocket our society into the new century, developed countless stuff and provided resources to a good part of the planet.

But it also one MAJOR flaw... The structure of capitalism is based on INCREASE. A Company is NOT good, if the revenue of the new year isn't GREAT than the one of the PREVIOUS year. It need to ALWAYS go up, up up... Year after year, a constant going up.

If a company is stable, for 50 years, it's shit. Cause it's not increasing. Cause we want MORE.... Always MORE...

Same in life, and culture in "CIVILIZED" countries... We always NEED and WANT MORE... Otherwise we are a failure... Cause we are based on Capitalism. If you don't increase your capital and assets... You've failed. A Culture based on money and assets, in an increasing level.

But for how long you need to increase? Where does it stop? When can you say, I have what I want and I'm happy with this. I don't need more....

Something to stew on...  That's why we take everything for granted, from our comfortable houses, to our car that isn't the last one. I NEED the latest TV set...

Oh gosh, I have an old phone! I NEED the new one... Even if more than half the planet doesn't even own a freaking phone....

Cultural thing is funny in a way... A new religion of some kind...

Something to stew on ;)
