No, I don't believe in it. It will just end up in poor people shaming and human suffering. In the Netherlands we have a good social welfare system, it needs improvement but I do not think its bad. Still, a lot of people CHOOSE to work. Because they want to. I want to. Most people want to. Maybe for some people who get motivated by fear or shaming. But I never heard that actually worked for anyone. I was never able to fear or shame myself into working. I was able to re energize and love myself into working. I think capitalism is a system that displays the ultimate distrust on citizens, a system that thinks the worst of the people. And I do not believe people deserve that. I believe in people. And thats why I do not believe in capitalism. Even lazy people can be motivated in a positive way.

capitalism creates an atmosphere of needing to compete to be best and make the most $$$, hard to envision how this can create compassion, charity, and good.
