The main trouble with capitalism…

…said the Prophet Chesterton, is that there aren’t enough capitalists. He was all for private property and individual ownership. Centralized economies were as much anathema to him as they are to Rush Limbaugh. The trouble with our current system is that it talks a good game about private ownership while insanely taking my money and giving it to incompetent and greedy rich guys who are too big to fail. That’s not a consolation to me.
