Twice this week I've been angered by postings on the Internet about how capitalism is undermining our democracy. One was here on these boards. Another was on Andrew Sullivan's web site, where a reader email said: This irks me because it is an upside down worldview. It is capitalism, it is the freedom to make voluntary associations and exchange goods as we see fit, that allows for true social justice. It is capitalism that creates wealth. In any instance in which capitalism is counter to democracy, it is because capitalism is a virtuous system and democracy is quite flawed. I am willing to accept Churchill's maxim that democracy is the worst system of government except all the others that have been tried, but I am angered when people suggest what we need is more democracy and less capitalism. Quite the contrary! We need far less democracy so that capitalism can flourish.
