This.

And it’s not just Putin.

Exploiting greed is the cornerstone of every modern autocrat and wannabe autocrat’s playbook.

When we say capitalism is the slippery slope to fascism this is what we mean.

This is where you end up if your compass has profit as its true north.

cheapo drunk 'analysis'

Ummh, isn't capitalism literally authoritarianism translated into financial terms? I mean, substitute power for money and that's where you end up, right? Just leave power to itself it'll be ok ➡️ just leave money to itself. This is obviously an empirical observation of results, not premises. Quite happy, my country rejects capitalism (as, to be fair, most countries do. Pure capitalism hardly exists, as there are always rules constraining capital. Whether they are enough is a whole other story)
