The Pyramid of the Capitalist System

The American Dream is based on the belief that anyone can become wealthy by working hard. Alas this is only a dream, the truth is capitalism works just like any other pyramid scheme, where the few winners gain at the expense of the mass of losers.

Just take a look at the people that work the hardest today, nurses, cleaners, factory workers, firemen the list goes on. If the American Dream was true, then these people should be the thriving. But instead its the people who do the least work such as land owners, bankers and shareholders, getting rich through rents, investments and exploiting the poor’s debt.
