Yessss! Conscious capitalism is by far the best way to drive innovation IMO. People that are have nots with a desire to get ahead are forced to innovate or steal. If you innovate you should be rewarded. If you repeatedly steal you should be punished quite heavily, maybe even banished from society.
This is why I don’t care for the overly liberal mindset, the bleeding hearts.
I DO agree with equality…IN OPPORTUNITY. I DO NOT agree with equality…IN OUTCOME.

I don’t think it’s a matter or them not “buying into” it. If you grow up in an area where everyone around you is a pile of shit, your parents are shit/depressed and your school system is run like absolute garbage…your frame of mind is bound to be limited. Add to that the “entertainers” today, Lil Wayne and the likes…depicting easy money & drug habits as lucrative and cool. It would seem we need to find a way to open the inner cities eyes to equal opportunity (not talking mandating x number of minorities per company) and positive role models. LZ is spot on, there is TONS of money floating around waiting to be grabbed in legit fashion. This is still by far the country offering the greatest chance at upward mobility! Remove the government tit and heavily punish thieves. Ensure our government is enticing small business rather than supporting the lobbying behemoths.
