“…however it’s baffling that most of the criticisms of capitalism are actually symptoms of bloated-government and over-regulation.”

Big business doesn’t really want free-market capitalism — it wants crony capitalism so they can use their money power to corrupt the system in their favor. Then when things go haywire and the left pushes back, the left gets criticized for wanting more “ bloated-government and over-regulation” when actually all the left wants is a more level playing field.

It is ironic that in many fields what small business needs to complete is actually socialism which in the past used to be called monopolistic “trust-busting”.
