You say you can 'destroy' what he so excellently articulates. Many, many, many, many, many studies have concluded capitalism makes life worse for humanity if unregulated.
Lets take some of this guys basis premises...
1. People are idiots who will not keep up on things that affect their lives nor do they desire to do so
Lets take this on face value even though I disagree with it.
2. People will act selfishly always be it individually or in groups.
I can go with that.
Now a free market is bad because people are sheep and the companies will abuse that because they act selfishly putting people lives in danger etc. Because people will not investigate properly the companies nor products.
Whence we need the the gov ie the sheperd to heavily regulate companies so as to protect the sheep from the evil wolves.
My main problem is the sheperds will become the wolves themselves because the populace still does not investigate and blindly trusts.
You are simply changing who has the power the people still suffer.
Besides the weird guy in uruguay find me a poor politician and I highly doubt the leaders in venezuela are short on toilet paper.
