People in America do not see the true nature of capitalism and protest because they believe it to be something else entirely. It is a system where the weak fail and the strong flourish. Now this sounds like survival of the fittest which it is but there is a key difference. The weak can become the strong. If they work and actually want to improve their economic situation it can be done. People living in poverty can advance to middle class and the exceptional can even rise to upper class. Now what these protestors are protesting is that there is no economic equality which they are right in that sense. Though they are wrong in another, they don't deserve it. This is a country where you can accomplish almost anything if you are willing. Sometimes you may fail but if there is a will there is a way. Now some of these protestors are calling for socialism which actually kills the upper class and makes everything the same resulting in a weakened economic state. If they desire this they should move to China or North Korea and you can see the true nature of socialism and the wonders of capitalism. Now capitalism isn't perfect, nothing is, it I however the best we have. If you can think of something better please tell me and until someone does then capitalism shall be the best.
