    It's because of our greedy and easily corruptible nature. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

    And even if you have watchers to watch the watchers, who will watch the watcher-watching watchers? ;) I don't know why, but whenever I see that phrase, I think "Janitors"...

    I think Thomas Jefferson had it right when he said that for a democracy to work you have to have a revolution every now and then. Not directly related to capitalism, but I think it applies. The people at the top have to have some fear from those below.

    but even those below, scoff at the revolutionaries. Most the people at the lower end are sufficiently whipped this time. The top mucky-mucks only do what they are allowed to do.
    Which, puts the responsibility for the imbalance squarely on those that are affected the most by it the most. A revolution does not require arms and blood. It requires using what the
    opposition values the most and uses as the chief weapon the most. Let the dollar do the fighting. It'll work really well.
