    I don’t know how you can look at a map clearly showing the aftereffects of decades of communism and blame it on capitalism. Why would east Germany vote fascist due to rampant capitalism but the rest of Germany not do that? I just don’t understand.

      Capitalism is clearly one of the central puzzle pieces of humanity’s downfall.

      If I need to spell it out, growth. Growth is a requirement. And with it everything else has to scale, too.

      And there’s always another ‘solution’ to be sold. Well, let’s get on it then, trying to develop a product to sell solving this crisis.

      The movie ‘don’t look up’ explains this very well, too.

      Then, regarding the far right. Companies thrive on hate. It sells very very well.

      Maybe what will make you understand, is that 1. the black part is also bad, just a different flavor of it, 2. those two things can be separate issues that are both problematic, not one being right, one being wrong and 3. the DDR was never really communism, like most “communist” countries (like current “communist” China is almost entirely capitalistic)
