  1. capital really only paper,
    real power remains with the people,
    goverment in minority, adviseing majority,
    pay more taxes, [soon to be worthless paper]
    allowing capitalist to function at peoples expense.

  2. The flow of capital towards a group that then holds it for whatever reason, is in direct opposition to the flow of a river OR a vascular system. Indeed, greed, for whatever reason, is an act of morphing, and constraint disobeys, laws of thermodynamics. In vascualar systems the flow of the blood is to the heart which turnstyles it. Greed certainly can’t be the original intention of CAPITALISM.
    The presumption appears to be that there is only one flow and that is within the system. However at the macro level, the regeneration of the bottom, must push the pyramid up, still maintaining relative positions.
