How Can We Improve Capitalism?

Capitalism must obey a better definition of freedom in which the merit of capital is attached to the merit of evolutionary value.

We can improve capitalism by not having it violate the most rudimentary principles of freedom. Capitalism without individual freedom protected by paradoxical rules to support collective freedom yields a narrow and selfish form of capitalism that jeopardizes the evolution of humanity. For it extracts short-term wealth from the much-needed investment in the long-term survival of the human species.

An example: the creation of the tobacco industry is an example of capitalism producing extraordinary wealth, only to be followed by a burden thirty years later that suffocates our medical system with respiratory disease being the 3rd leading cause of death, and even the next generation is coughing up the bills for. I can list many others.

So, the point is capitalism ought to obey a hierarchy, subject to a new normalization of the relativity of freedom in which the merit of capital is attached to the merit of evolutionary value. Without that, any form of capitalism is merely artificial wealth distribution to those who find cunning ways to take our broken systems for a selfish ride.

Let’s lead the world by example with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
