I do not have the time to explain my position fully, its nuanced, but it is more socialist than capitalist for sure.
I have no problem with anyone making money, and plenty of it. But i feel they then do have a responsibility to the greater public. I believe punishments for stealing from the people should be as bad as many other crimes.
The reality for instance here in Ballincollig is the town, at least these trying to do business, are in the grip of a dictatorship of sorts where 2 Developers of note, both in with NAMA, are driving up the cost of rent etc and leaving oremesis empty rather than rent them out. Yet they owe the people millions. They should be forced to accept going rates. As of now Ballincollig is at Dublin rates of commercial rent.
Thats capitalism. Thats stealing. Stealing from the people. These guys put under small business after small business, cost people their homes and marraiges and even could be connected to suicides. Yet they can charge what they want while in NAMA.
Its a joke. Small business is what keeps towns going. Ya big business helps and has its place. But nobody should be able to dictate the way these cunts do.
