Capitaism is contradictory to Democracy. True power is possesed in the control of commodities/resources, resources providing leverage over people who need them whether this be food,housing, water or land. Leverage which is particularly apparant in third-world countries where corruption, only possible through capitalisms theory of value, is prevalent but also apparant with the huge power of leverage and influence posses by large corporate organisations. A popular view among liberals aswell as many economists is for more governmental control which in turn would allow less corrupted freedoms of capitalists. This is a fair standpoint: the excessive risky bank lending/libor/economic games which caused this recession played by the rich to pass a quick buck being fundamental to crashes like this one and prior ones. However, to allow more governmental control is to turn the government into a corrupt organisation and create state capitalism similar to the economic systems of the USSR. What we need to do is to allow the democratic ownership of true commodities: oil, gas etc. while giving a labour theory of value to every other possible "commodity" : food, water etc. with very few exceptions taking the form of professional professions: engineers/doctors, who would recieve extra value to their labour per hour. By delocalising commdoities we remove power, by creating a labour value system we remove the need of corporations to sustain the system and by giving extra value to engineers's and doctors hours we give a motive for more proffesionals if there is a lack of such services within society. Due to leverage any democrat elected into power cannot employ this: it is impossible for them to do so due to the lack of true power. Only though revolution can we achieve actually this. 1 idea: Labour theory of value.
