    This is a capitalism-dialogue between Shiva (Hindu god of destruction) and Gray Goblin (fictional Marvel Comics 'super-villain' who represents anarchy).

    Cheers,

    GRAY GOBLIN: The power of hell is found in mischief-imagination!
    SHIVA: Mischief is for juveniles; I prefer regular comedy as an art-form.
    GRAY GOBLIN: I like comedians too (e.g., the Three Stooges, The Marx Brothers, etc.).
    SHIVA: Stand-up comedians are terrific too (e.g., Andy Kaufman, Richard Pryor, etc.).
    GRAY GOBLIN: Well, comedy is 'high-brow' discourse, but mischief is...fun.
    SHIVA: You can't abandon ethics in the name of 'fun.'
    GRAY GOBLIN: Wall Street is all about gambling. How is that 'ethical'?
    SHIVA: Shared-risk in an entire economic 'system' creates obedience.
    GRAY GOBLIN: Alright, so the Great Depression was felt by all Americans...
    SHIVA: Yes, and it was during the Depression that we glorified Bonnie and Clyde!
    GRAY GOBLIN: Bank-robbery has always been 'exciting' (i.e., anti-federalism).
    SHIVA: Bureaucracy can be purely frustrating.
    GRAY GOBLIN: If there's a World War III, it will be between competing markets.
    SHIVA: Yeah, I can see America competing with China...over steel and fossil-fuels.
    GRAY GOBLIN: Maybe President Donald Trump can soothe the 'capitalist beast.'
    SHIVA: There's potential...as long as Trump entreats Americans' sense of pageantry!
