Capitalism has a corrupting influence on politics and must be severely restrained.
Or could it be just the opposite?
And maybe the protesters are really just dupes who have wound up on the losing side of a conspiracy between government and academia to inflate the cost of higher education and deflate its content while drawing power and wealth to themselves. I would be mad too— but also a bit embarrassed.
Lacking marketable skills after going deeply in debt, these protesters reject competition in preference for politics as the way out of their bad “investments.’
In that respect, they are, except for the skills part, not much different from the bankers they vilify.
