You are not "governed" by Wall Street. That's what you don't get. If a business pisses you off, or you just don't want what they're selling, you can refuse to do business with them. There's nothing they can do about it.
Apparently you're incapable of distinguishing between a plutocracy and a democracy:


Nah. I just think you're full of shit. You think majority rule will always do the right thing. That's just dumb.

Majority rule is good for some things. It's idiotic for an economy because everyone has different needs and desires, which don't always conform to the needs and desires of the majority.
It's idiotic to construct an economy where a small minority of participants decide what to produce, where to produce it, and how to distribute any surplus.
Yup. That is why socialism is shit, that is what happens. That is what makes capitalism better, no centralized cabal of a few people deciding how much Malt-O-Meal and toilet paper you need. Capitalism is much better as we all get to decide for ourselves.

Not that you would understand.
