unchecked capitalism

Shadowrun: Hong Kong is a good game because most of the time it’s a game about cyberpunk renengades struggling to survive under the oppressive boot of unchecked capitalism but some times it’s a game about punching vampires until they agree to shut down their Cyber-Youtube accounts.

Here’s the underlying issue: capitalism, as it is now, is a fucking disaster. The people who do not want to change it are the people who benefit the most from it. When someone like Bernie Sanders who has 40+ years’ experience comes along and says, ‘hey…this shit doesn’t work,’ there needs to be a lid put on capitalism by way of regulation. People like Hillary who obviously benefit from unchecked capitalism become threatened. They start shit talking. They claim that Bernie’s ideas are a fucking pipe dream… hmmm. Seems to me this nation was at its peak when unions were strong and the wealthiest were taxed at rates significantly higher than now. The claim that Bernie doesn’t have a clue is false, as a lot of what he talks about adds up to things that have already been done and have been done successfully. Regulation is the key to longevity, and establishing better equality is also key to the overall strength of this nation.
