Capitalism & The County Fair

Capitalism is like the county fair. There's a ticket booth... and if you run around, doing what the owners of the fair want you to do, you can eat funnel cakes, ride fancy rides, and win tokens by competing in the strong man swings a hammer, the squirt gun horse race, or whatever. 

At the end, if you are better than everyone else, you get a jack daniels mirror, or a led zeppelin glow in the dark poster. That's how i perceive rich people driving bmws & spending their leisure time on their yacht. It's really not very impressive at all... Kind of makes you a douche bag. And though you've got the jack daniels mirror, the real winner is the owner of the fair. You are essentially a tool. I'm far more impressed with a Native American grandma who can weave a beautiful rug and owns nothing.
